Oh,and I cannot forget Aziz Ansari who played Randy,the Middle Eastern looking comedian. He cracked me up. Also Eminem showed up for a cameo appearance in the film, which was also very hilarious.

This new “Orphan” movie which stars Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther absolutely kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Even before she arrived onto the scene,she had me nervous. I was wondering what the hell is this little girl going to do. It also ended with a great twist which cleared up the question, “What is wrong with Esther?”

In a brief synopsis of the film, the Coleman family decide to adopt Esther because she seemed really nice when they met her at the orphanage. They also wanted to adopt a child so they could show it the love they didn’t get to show to the baby that Kate Coleman (Vera Farmiga) miscarried.

However, it turns out that Esther had brought a few issues along with her to the Coleman home. They manifested themselves when Esther acts out by killing a couple of folks,and attempting to kill a few others. Read more »

‘Bruno’ Movie Delivered Nonstop Laughs

Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy movie “Bruno” opened up on Friday July 10,2009,and from there it was laugh on. This movie was way funnier than his last movie “Borat”. The scenes that appear in “Bruno” shocked and astounded me. It was unbelievable what they let slip into this film.

In a brief plot, Bruno the gay, Austrian, model is outcast from his native Austria for his outlandish and wreckless behaviour. No one there would let him back into a modeling show. So it was off to L.A. with his gay assistant Lutz (Gustaf Hammarsten) to become a big Hollywood celebrity. He would soon foil that opportunity up as well with his unbelievable antics which included a hilarious scene with Paula Abdul.

He would also ruin his relationship with his assistant by rejecting his love for him. It was a really gross display, what they did. He tries tons of ridiculous things to become a famous Hollywood celebrity Read more »
