Yes Sir! I mean, Yes Man!

So we went to a Saturday afternoon matinee to see Yes Man, the new Jim Carrey movie. However, although I love a good Jim movie, it was the beautiful and incredibly talented Zoey Dashanel who drove us into the theatre.
Isn't she lovely? She's also the sister of the lead actress in Bones on Fox (My new favorite tv show, check it out.)

It is HILARIOUS. Positively funny. The only down side I have to say about it is a certain awkward and sexual scene including an old woman and her....well, its awkward and gross but still funny so I'll let you get the full experience :)

The lack of movies has made me move on

Yes, my dear friends and readers, I live in a place that has a total of 5 movie screens. And it usually doesn't get the newest movies. I'm heartbroken...I want to see Changling but, alas, it has not come to this forsaken place. So, Since I haven't the movies to continue my movie blog, I'm going back to telling stories of my day to day life. If you've worked with me, you know I love to tell funny stories. If you haven't, I'm sure you've heard them via myspace, telephone, or facebook. So, I created a new blog for the stories and funny little things that I'll be writing...I want to leave this one untainted by those shenanigans and leave it as a movie blog. Don't plan on seeing another movie review until Twilight....unless I faint in the theatre and are unable to be revived or some other nonsense.

So, for the funny stories, here is the link...

Steve Martin Suprise!

Ok, now I know that I haven't made a post in a very long time and that's mostly because, 1. I'm lazy and distracted, and 2. There haven't been many movies good enough or bad enough to warrent their own post.

So I actually have nothing funny to say about this movie I am going to review, but please read it anyway. Ok, that's not like me...I do have one thing to say...I mean show.
TRAITOR!!!!!!!!! (That's what I got when I did a google image search for a image from traitor. I couldn't help myself)

Traitor is a beautiful story with a main charactor so genuinely good that one can't help but be drawn in. It's a story that demonstrates in a profound and unique way that our perceptions aren't always correct and that what we deem as knowledge isn't always grounded in truth. The director takes this theme right off the page of the screenplay and brings it to life with his creative camera work and smooth staging. Don Cheadle is perfect in the lead role and brings with him a depth and sincerity to the main character that displays a talent so rare in the industry today. Steve Martin did a magnificent job putting this story on paper. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him in the credits but its true. And if this is the type of movie that is produced out of his mind, I truely wish he'll write another.

Traitor tells the story of a man who gets caught up in a holy war and how he reacts when forced to take a side. I don't think I am able to explain this movie fully so, instead of going on and botching it, I'm going to leave it at that.

Rated PG13 for violence, language, and themes.

I've probably said this before, but if you only see one movie this year, make it this one. Honestly, even with Twilight coming out, see this one. I know, I totally just said that. (So maybe I would run and see Twilight January 1st but you get the idea)

Tropic Thunder

For the second time this summer, I have fallen in love with the man I once hated....
Sir Robert Downey Jr


So I was laying on my stomach in a hotel room in Mesquite, flipping randomly through the channels. It was late, I didn't expect much to be on. I stopped on Jay Leno and saw RDJ come on to promote Tropic Thunder. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to see that movie (but lets face it, I would anyway because I could for free) but I thought I'd watch him talk it up. So he gets asked why he picked it and he said (paraphrased) "Well, I knew this movie would either be fantastic or ruin all the good IronMan did." I chuckled and then ran to go crank the pennie slots ( I won $14 thank you very much)

As said in other blogs, I have been known to slip when laughing too hard. This movie made me have to plug my ears and close my eyes, not from fear, but because I was laughing too hard. Don't worry, I didn't pee :) But I did laugh so hard my stomach muscles were sore the next day.

I don't think this will destract from how amazing he was in Ironman. In fact, I thought he did a better job in this. I adored this movie. So much that it is my favorite comedy. AND, I think RDJ deserves and Oscar.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

This post is going to be boring because for once, I do not want to ruin it for you...not that I'm normally an evil person who runs around yelling the ending of a movie out to the crowd of people waiting to go in...oh wait, yes I do.

You have to go see Journey to the Center of the Earth. It is the most entertaining movie I have ever seen...ever. I would highly reccomend seeing it with large amounts of sugar or pot or caffeine in your system to maximize viewing pleassure. I watched it at 1 AM and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I guess a midnight movie would work great too.
