The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Terrible. Horrible. Complete waste of time. There was only one line that made me laugh: “Nobody tells DJ Request what to play.” I wish that line were used by a DJ in some other, funny movie.

We’ve been rocking this song for the past couple of weeks at church.

I love it.

Land of the Lost

I’ll have to say that this movie was better than I was expecting… but that isn’t saying much. I’d heard so many comments about how terrible it was from people that I was expecting something horrific. It wasn’t horrific, just kind of mediocre. There were a few laugh-out-loud moments, but for the most part it was just kind of dumb/silly. I always love Danny McBride, so his parts made me laugh. Not a bust, but nothing I care to see again.

Observe and Report

This is such a weird movie. It’s pretty much a dark comedy, but then again it’s kinda not. There are some very serious, very uncomfortable moments, which makes the whole thing kind of awkward. And I liked it. It’s not really at all like what one would expect, I guess being released around the same time as that other mall cop movie. It’s definitely not a movie I would recommend to most people, probably, but if you like really dark stuff, with some good humor splashed in, it’s worth checking out. I was pleasantly surprised.

It’s pretty apparent that this isn’t a real show, and that it’s just a viral campaign for Gushers, but it’s so super awesome that I don’t even care.

Moon

Last night Reid and I went to see Moon at the dollar theater. I love the dollar theater. It didn’t take long for us to figure out what was going on, but that was kind of the point. The movie wasn’t really about the twist, but more about how the main character dealt with this new discovery. And it worked. The movie was a bit slow, but was never boring. I guess a movie about a dude by himself on the moon is bound to be a bit slow. There were a few things we talked about after the movie that we sort of had issue with, but for the most part it was a solid film that wasn’t necessarily suspenseful, but definitely intriguing. I’d like to see it again someday, knowing what’s going to happen, and look for more clues/discrepancies. I have a feeling that I’d more than likely come out of a second viewing with more reasons not to like the film, though, so maybe I’ll just leave it alone. Either way, it was a good movie. Recommended for people who like interesting stories and can live without very much action. Oh, and the effects were quite impressive.

Where The Wild Things Are

I really loved this movie. It was so well-made, and funny, and sad and just great. Spike Jonze is one of my favorite directors, so when I heard he was directing this, I knew I wouldn’t be let down. And I definitely wasn’t. Max Records (yes, his real name is Max) did an amazing job. And the voices for the Wild Things were perfect. I especially liked Catherine O’Hara as Judith and Chris Cooper as Douglas. Other than visually, this isn’t much of a kid’s movie at all. I can understand why the studio would want to make sure it had a PG rating, so parents would feel okay about taking their kids, but I don’t know if this is something I’d want to take a young kid to. It just deals with a lot of complex themes and is, at times, quite dark. I do, however, recommend this to everyone who’d actually be reading this blog. It’s a keeper.
