I know Colin is planning on writing a full review of the movie on TUG.n, but I felt that I just had to get this off my chest.

19% on rottentomatoes.com. Come on now. I can see critics not thinking this movie was great, however, I don’t see how they could say you shouldn’t see it.

Personally, I extremely enjoyed this movie, which was perhaps enhanced because of all the negativity surronding it. As a matter of fact, I had a smile on my face when it was over, and I plan on seeing it again.

Gifts that rock

April 27, 2006

Big ol’ thanks to Eliza for this awesome present that is one of the best and creative gifts I have ever received. It’s a hand-made movie special concoction of goodies and a classic movie I have been really really wanting to see but haven’t had the chance to, Taxi Driver. All the goodies are held within a movie-style tub of popcorn. And then a get well card, with the additional signatures of two feline friends, Pooks and Picks.

As I have written before, I had sinus surgery this past Thursday which requires me to stay at home and basically do nothing besides work (sitting on my laptop) and watching TV for at least 10 days. This doesn’t sound like much fun, but luckily I have friends like Eilza and Colin who have been very gracious about making my time enjoyable.

They lent me the first season of LOST so I can watch an episode now and then whenever I need to take a rest from working. In the past I have blasted LOST basically because I didn’t get a chance to watch it. From watching a good portion of episodes I have come to realize why the show is such a huge phenenom.

Now I have goodies to go along with my movie/TV show watching. Not only the goodies in the gift basket, but I have also received hand cook meals (from master chef Colin), donuts, coffee, freeze pops (one of my favorite things ever), and probably something else that I am apologetically missing, all from my good friends, Colin and Eliza.

With friends like that you can’t go wrong. I’m truly grateful and hopefully I’ll be able to make it up to you when I’m all healed up.

Firewall

February 13, 2006

I may post a full review on TUG, but in short, Firewall is a movie that, at the most, should be viewed as a rental.

The story was illogical, the acting was hilarious, and the ending was dragged out and overdramatic. Despite the flaws, this movie was mildly entertaining.

Excited for King Kong

December 14, 2005

The time has arrived. It is t minus 2 1/2 hours before the movie event of the year starts its assualt on the theaters of America.

I can’t wait to see it, I’ve got my tickets prepped, and my legs warmed up. I’m ready for the long haul. Even though I’m going to have 3 hours of sleep (if that) before work, I’m still checking out the midnight showing. I have waited for months to see this movie, one night without sleep will not kill me, or at least I hope not.

I’ll let you know what I think of it promptly after seeing the film.
