DV-Debrief:

Drive Angry 3D

Summit Entertainment, LLC

First let me tell you that I am upset that Shady the Biker was not here to discuss this movie with us. It was his idea to check this flick out. I think he owes me a beer or lunch for making me watch this DVD. If you have not seen Drive Angry 3D consider yourself lucky. I know why Shady likes this movie, but I sure wish he was here to tell us why. Drive Angry is about an old guy who escapes out of hell to chase down a dude who killed his daughter and kidnapped his granddaughter. It stars Nicolas Cage (as the old guy), Amber Heard (as the eye candy), William Fichtner (as the only good actor & saving grace to this film) and Billy Burke (as the kidnapper). I am interested in hearing what you thought of this movie, leave a comment below and let me know if I am being to harsh on this movie. Better yet listen to the podcast and then leave a comment.

Feature Flick:

Transformers

Paramount Pictures

If you like cars and more eye candy than Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is the movie for you. This obvious Michael Bay movie is back for a third round. In this version of Transformers we get to see Sam Witwicky with a new girlfriend trying to find a job after college and the Autobots are saving the world (I’m not sure more meets the eye in this sequel). This time the Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft that crash landed on the Moon. And of course the race is on to reach it before the Decepticons use its secrets to destroy the humans. Once again you have Shia LaBeouf  as Sam, Josh Duhamel as Lennox, John Turturro as Simmons, and Tyrese Gibson as Epps. Plus you meet Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the new love interest, aka eye candy, Carly.

So tell us what you think of Transformers by leaving a comment.

Until next time….

EftRoU 114: vicious babe-a-licious mermaids

Sorry for the late post this week folks. The U.S. holiday got the best of me. I took Monday off and just plain forgot to post the show on Sunday. Enough with the excuses!

The Mechanic Movie

CBS Films - The Mechanic

This week’s DV-Debrief is based on a 1972 Charles Bronson movie called, of all things, The Mechanic. This time Jason Statham is in the lead role with a great supporting cast that includes Ben Foster, Donald Sutherland and Tony Goldwyn. In this 2011 version of The Mechanic, we follow a hitman as he tries to make a wrong right. Be ready for lots of action, guns, cars, and fighting! One might say it is more of the same from Statham.

Feature Flick #1

Pirates #4

Walt Disney Studios - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

If you have not seen the last installment of Pirate of the Caribbean you are doing just fine. Johnny Depp returns and Jack Sparrow, there should be a captain in there, while Geoffrey Rush returns as Barbossa in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. New to this version of the Pirates franchise is Penélope Cruz as the love interest and Ian McShane as the bad guy (Blackbeard). In Pirates number four, Sparrow and Barbossa embark on a journey to find the fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard is after it too. Listen in and see if we were fans of this movie and then let us know what you thought of it by leaving a comment below.

Feature Flick #2

Hangover part 2

Warner Bros. Pictures - The Hangover Part II

That’s right – The Wolfpack is back! In The Hangover Part II everyone is back for more of the same. If you were a fan of the first Hangover movie you will enjoy this one as well. Once again Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis find themselves not remembering what they did the night before and have to re-trace their steps, this time they’re in Bangkok.  Listen in and see what we thought of this version of the hangover.

Thanks for listening to our show. We love that you listen to what we have to say. We would also love to hear what you think of the movies we discuss. Let us know by leaving a comment below. Take care and be well!

Until next time…
