EftRoU 130: I don’t get it…

Okay this is becoming a habit now. Once again I am late posting this week’s episode of Entertainment for the Rest of Us. Sorry folks, I’m just a regular guy and it seems that life is getting in the way of us getting our great thoughts out there about TV, Movies, and everything leisurely. Well I have complained enough, lets talk about the show.

This week we review and discuss the DVD Bridesmaids and in theaters, as of this posting, Moneyball. No points of interest to share but we still have a good time.

Bridesmaids

Universal Pictures

For those fans of SNL, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy (recent Emmy winner from the CBS TV hit Mike and Molly), we got the DVD for you to go rent; we discuss Bridesmaids. Bridesmaids is a comedy about Annie, played Kristen Wiig, who is picked to be her best friend’s maid of honor, broke and not too happy about relationships she tries to fake her way through the pricy and odd rituals of getting married. Since we are a bunch of dudes we really didn’t get this movie. So please tell us what we are missing by leaving a comment.

Feature Flick:

Moneyball

Columbia Pictures

If you are looking for a good film to see with great dialog and storytelling then you need to go see Moneyball. The gents and I break this film down and discuss why it is so good. Moneyball is about Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s attempt at building a baseball team on a budget by using science more than experience and gut feel. This movie stars the one and only Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Chris Pratt and Robin Wright. Directed by Bennett Miller and based on the book “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” written by Michael Lewis. Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay for this wonderful film. I think it’s a must see. If you’ve seen Moneyball, and you don’t think it’s a must see tell me why by leaving a comment. Or if you like it tell us why…

Thanks again for stopping by and listening to the show. Be sure to tell your friends and family about us!

Thanks,

DV-Debrief:

Everything Must Go

Birdsong Pictures

This week’s DVD review is about a guy who loses his job on the same day his wife throws him out of his house. The name of this movie is Everything Must Go, starring Will Ferrell. I am telling you now that Ferrell shows his true acting skills in this one, but the story is depressing. Were not saying don’t see it, but be ready for a not so funny Ferrell.

Future Flick #1:

Contagion

Warner Bros. Pictures

Square Ross decided to be different and go see the big name movie Contagion. In this movie there are a ton of big names including but not limited to: Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and Elliott Gould. Contagion is a thriller centered around the idea of a deadly disease and an international team of Dr.’s that are trying to deal with the outbreak. Let us know if you agree with Square by leaving a comment.

Feature Flick #2

 

Warrior

Lionsgate

The rest of the crew and I took time out to see the movie Warrior. This movie is about two brother that are fighting to gain everything and lose nothing. When I say they are fighting they are truly fighting in a Mixed Martial Arts tournament that only a few can qualify for. You will find some great performances from Joel Edgerton, Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte, Jennifer Morrison and Kevin Dunn in this movie. After you see this movie let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Thanks again for stopping by… please tell a friend…. until next time… take care and be well!

EftRoU 128: Dano stops by…

I haven’t really been motivated or energized to get this post done in a hurry, sorry about that. I have let life get in my way of getting our entertainment reviews out. In this episode you will hear a bit about Chrome and Chroma, an art show that our very own Shady the Biker participated in. We also touch on the NetFlix Starz Entertainment deal that didn’t happen. Our feature flick this week is Apollo 18.
