Movies Out This Weekend
Total Recall - Does anybody in the world want to see this movie? The original is, let’s face it, pretty bad. This one looks like a blander version. PG-13 means no three breasted aliens and no blood. WWE is TV-PG and they can do blood.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days - Is this movie about a kid or dogs? Maybe both. Maybe neither. If you see this movie you will die.
Movies I Watched This Week
The Watch 7/10 This movie received terrible reviews, but I really enjoyed it. It was funny and Vince Vaughn and Richard Aoyade were both really good in it.
Miss Congeniality 2 4/10 Bad. For the most part, it doesn’t even seem like the same Sandy B character until the third act. I could write an essay about this movie.
Cabin Boy 6.5/10 Surprisingly good, unsurprisingly weird.
Goon 7/10 A good hockey movie about a “goon,” a dude who beats the shit out of people.
Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical 6/10 An okay movie that goes on a little long. The songs are not particularly good for the most part, but the dancing is.
Drive Me Crazy 4/10 Pretty shitty. Something about the movie just didn’t click.
