The Dark Knight Rises

One of the greatest things about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is that moviegoers were given nothing in the weeks leading up to the film’s eargerly awaited release. But was it worth the wait? In order for this movie to have lived up to the sky-high expectations fans had for it, Director Christopher Nolan would’ve needed a Heath Ledger cameo and an Anne Hathaway wardrobe malfuction along with everything else that transpired. I held my anticipation at a reasonable level and even I – the girl who loves just about everything – remain slightly underwhelmed. The movie was good, it just wasn’t OHMUHFUHGUH good. There were parts that were excellent, but no movie that runs for 2 hours and 45 minutes is exciting the entire time. There were moments of boredom. There was a lot of story to tell, and it’s never easy to decide what can and can’t make the final cut. The editing process alone was probably grueling and I’m willing to bet there is about 48 hours of extra footage.Read More »

Ted

Thunder buddies for life

When it was announced that “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane was doing a movie I automatically assumed that it was going to be full of fart jokes, profanity, and lots of obscure pop culture references. I was, right, for the most part, but maybe that isn’t such a bad thing. TED is about John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) and his best friend in the whole world, Ted (voiced by MacFarlane, of course) . As a boy, John wished one fateful night that his friend Ted could come alive and they could really be best friends. Having a walking, talking teddy bear is fine when you’re young I suppose, but having a pot-smoking, unemployed, couch-surfing teddy bear when you’re supposed to be a grown up, not so much.Read More »

Oh, hey there. It’s me. Remember me?

Been awhile there, readers. Happy to be back. In a few short hours I’ll be watching THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Today I got to thinking about all of the great movies that will come out later this year. Here, in order of their release dates, are some movies that I am totally jazzed about.

In this third installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy – you know, the one that the entire planet is talking about right now – Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is up against an entirely new evil. His new villain is ripped, mean, and capable of just about anything. Bane (Tom Hardy) is making things most difficult for Gotham and its citizens. With Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake) added to the already amazing cast, the end of the trilogy might just live up to the sky-high expectations pretty much everyone has set for it.
