Let’s Do It Again…

A few days ago I saw Expendables 2.  I have been waiting for this opening since they announced it shortly after the first Expendables came out.  Let's get some things straight to start off. I know they're all like 60 and in Chuck Norris' case...72, but I don't care.  I love it, bring on a 3rd.  I know you think it's unrealistic for these "Geezers" to dominate as much as they do...Ok, well, you fight Stallone aka Rocky Balboa and see who wins. My money is on him still being able to whoop 97% of your asses.  And my personal favorite comment,...

Yes, I went to Brave and YES, I realize I'm a grown man going to a little kids movie.  I know all of this, but look; I find it really hard to pass up on Pixar movies (well, except Cars 2, that was a travesty). Pixar has been a piece of my childhood since I was 10 and they are legendary...just awesome!  When Toy Story came out, I, along with most of America, became a fan and have been one ever since.  Every time Pixar comes out with a movie, especially something new, I can't wait to see what it's going to...

Zac: What would you do if you knew the world was going to end in 3 weeks? Would you spend time with family? Frantically try to cross every item off your bucket list? Keep living life like everything was fine? That's the question at the center of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. The majority of Hollywood disaster movies all follow the same, relatively simple formula: 1) A threat to humanity is discovered (Aliens, Asteroid, Natural Disaster, etc.) 2) Any conventional method for stopping it is quickly dismissed 2) One or several misfits or renegades are brought in to help 3) A crazy (but plausible) plan is formed 4) The plan fails...

Ok, I finally did it.  I was all talk for a while, but I finally stepped up and went to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  Look, I knew what I was getting myself into. I knew what kind of ratings it got. Yes, it flopped in the theaters, but just hear me out. I went to see this movie for a couple reasons: 1) Sorry, Abraham Lincoln killing evil doesn't strike you as awesome? 2) RottonTomatoes isn't always accurate with their evaluations and this movie is a perfect example. 35%!? That means that all 3 of the Jackass movies had better ratings, and not only...

Nic: A few months back we came across the Safety Not Guaranteed trailer and I gotta be honest, I was intrigued.  The story line of this movie is awesome by itself.  I mean, it starts with a want ad that reads – *Wanted* Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke.  You’ll get paid after we get back.  Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed.  I have only done this once before.  -- How can you go wrong with a movie like that?  Well, I’m here to tell you that you can’t. Rocked the Rave...

Don’t Worry, We Didn’t Understand It Either: A Discussion About Prometheus

 |  by  |  DualReviews  |  Share

 (Note: This is less of a review, and more of a discussion about Prometheus, so if you haven’t already seen the movie, there’s gonna be some spoilers coming your way. Also, much like the movie, there’s a high probability that none of this will make sense. Sorry.) Nic D: Have you ever watched a movie and at the end felt like what the hell did I just watch?  Did I miss something?  Or like, 8 things? I gave myself a week to think about this movie and come up with a few things to write, but I kept arriving at the...

Avengers: The Marvel Rye

Well, I succumbed to the hype that is the Avengers.  Went on a weeknight since they were still making 50 or so million the previous weekend and I didn’t want to be crowded…(Don’t crowd me! @ :28 mark)  That and to be honest with you, I wanted to see it, but I wasn’t in a mad dash either. Took our talents to the AMC Century City 15 this week.  The AMC 15 is a household favorite when it comes to movie watching because the theater is apart of the Westfield mall, and the Westfield mall offers a decent selection at the...

I’m not sure what just happened.  I mean, I went to the theaters knowing I was about to witness some kind of weird science experiment unfold, but I had no idea of the caliber of Cabin in the Woods.  It was a trip. We ran up to the Valley for this one, and ate at Weiler’s Deli before the show (which was lovely…I had the Monte Cristo sandwich, they nailed it).  Unfortunately, this meant a full stomach, so I had to forgo the popcorn (breaking one of my movie going commandments, but rules were meant to be broken, right?). The best...

Ah, 1999.  It feels like forever ago.  During the summer of ‘99 I was just finishing up my time at North Albany Middle School, I was 13 years old had my whole life in front of me.  Jesus, what the hell happened… Believe it or not, American Wedding came out in 2003.  I know, right?  We last left off with Jim and Michelle getting married. The movie was average at best. Sure it had some laughs here and there, and of course Stifler stole the show, but I think everyone was kind of disappointed in how the American Pie people signed...

I saw this movie trailer a while back.  It looked interesting, had Sean William Scott in it, along with Jay Baruchel (a personal favorite of mine since Knocked up) so I kept it on my radar.  As the movie came closer and closer to its release, I realized that this wasn’t going to get much of a release at all (31 total theaters opening weekend), which sort of bummed me out. But Rotten Tomatoes had decent reviews and I’m all for a hockey player movie, especially one based on a true story, so I searched out a theater. The release date...
