Making Time For More Movies

August 14, 2010 at 12:17 AM (Uncategorized)


Of course, I did my movie thing, like with most Fridays.  Tonight was a decent evening, more or less.  We watched the usual two films, with them turning out to be slightly better than expected.

The first movie was Scott Pilgrim vs. The World!  The mild comedy is about a young man named Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) who is a twenty-three year-old guy who has not had the most success with his blossoming life.  At twenty-three years of age, he finds himself unemployed, while spending most of his time practicing with a copycat garage band called Sex Bob-omb.  Things are progressing as best as they can in such a mild setting, then Scott encounters Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

Scott is seriously interested in getting to know Ramona.  However, his path to romantic pleasure is blocked by interference from his former romances.  Each one of these people is out to confront Scott now, intent on some serious cock blockage!  He realizes that his seven evil exes must be defeated before he can have any level of romance with Ramona!

We followed up with The Expendables!  It begins with a secret agent named Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) being selected to defeat a dictatorial leader on a remote island of South America.  This leads Church to collect a group of assassins, starting with a conversation to recruit Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone).  It is Ross who gathers the others, including weapons expert Hale Ceasar (Terry Crews), knife-wielding professional Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), sniper Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), demolitionist Toll Road (Randy Couture), fighter Tool (Mickey Rourke), and martial arts expert Yin Yang (Jet Li)

It is Christmas and Ross whom head to the island, first.  They case the scene, and they meet Sandra (Giselle Itie).  Sandra shows the team the true nature of what is happening.  The team realizes that they have to stop General Garza, whom is a forceful dictator on this island.  Yet, actions to battle Garza lead them to realize that their actual target is James Monroe (Eric Roberts), a rogue C.I.A. operative whom has turned against the nation. 

Their assignment gets heavy when the team has to confront Monroe’s bodyguard, Paine (Steve Austin).  As they have to battle Paine, the overall assignment nearly gets foiled.  The mix-up with attacking Paine, then being revealed to Monroe’s forces leads Ross and Christmas to leave the scene.  Yet, the remaining agents are able to regroup, utilizing their skilled attack tactics and powerful weaponry to battle Monroe!

I am kinda pumped up about Vampires Suck…don’t ask!  It starts next week.  The following week brings Lottery Ticket, Nanny McPhee Returns, Piranha 3D, and The Switch!  Leading into September, look forward to the premieres of Alpha and Omega, Devil, Going the Distance, Legend of the Guardians:  The Owls of Ga’HooleResident Evil:  Afterlife, The Romantics, and Wall Street:  Money Never Sleeps!
