Movie Review: "American Hustle"

Set in the 1970s, American Hustle is about a pair of con-artists (Christian Bale and Amy Adams) who have been recruited/entrapped by a (crazy?) FBI agent (Bradley Cooper).

His plan is to use them to catch even bigger fish.

Hilariousness ensues.

Movie Review: "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"

So it's part 2 of the Hobbit Trilogy, aka: the shortest book set in Middle Earth, which has inexplicably been stretched to the length of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

But I digress...

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug stars the same (mostly short) heroes that were introduced in part 1: Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Martin Freeman (Bilbo), and Richard Armitage (Thorin).













Movie Review: "Bernie"

Bernie is a quirky comedy based off real life events.

I cannot stress that enough.

Truth is stranger than fiction, and Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Matthew McConaughey seem perfect for their roles.
















Movie Review: "Despicable Me 2"

Sequel time!

The rule is every very good animated movie gets a sequel, so there was bound to be a Despicable Me 2.

(Why is there no The Incredibles 2?!?!?!)

Steve Carrell is back, and joined by the voice talents of Kristen Wiig and Benjamin Bratt.














Movie Review: "Haywire"

I won't lie, I was hesitant to watch Haywire because it's harder to suspend my sense of disbelief for female action heroes. The whole "waif-fu" doesn't always work.

This movie stars Gina Carano though so I should have known better... mea culpa!

There are other big names in here as well: Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, and Bill Paxton.

Still this is without a doubt Gina's movie.

NSFW Monday

You may know her as your favourite Cylon from the rebooted Battlestar Galactica, but for Grace Park I prefer to focus on her über-babeness.
