Lionsgate released their new,very hilarious,Tyler Perry branded,comedy/drama flick “Madea’s Big Happy Family” into theaters this weekend. I just watched it,and thought it was a complete riot.

‘Year One’ (2009) Movie, Reviewed

“Year One” starring Jack Black and Michael Cera made it’s debut this past weekend, Friday June 19,2009. I thought the movie was hilarious. Michael Cera’s onscreen chemistry with Jack Black kind of reminded me of his relationship with Jonah Hill’s in “Superbad” except in ancient times, of course. The general plot was that Jack Black’s character Zed had to leave their tribe for eating of the tree of “Good and Evil”.

Michael Cera’s character Oh followed behind him do to some unfortunate circumstances. They end up traveling the land after discovering that the world is indeed round,meet famous Bible figures, end up in Sodom where they are made guards and then made slaves. Then to conclude the story, they end up freeing all the slaves from the evil Sodom king with their silly wackiness. It had really hilarious moments which focused on spoofs from ancient Bible stories. It really made me laugh the whole time. Read more »

Sam Raimi did a great job with this movie. It was truly frightening. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time,and that Mrs. Ganush was just truly,truly gross. In a brief synopsis of this film. Christine Brown played by the gorgeous Alison Lohman, is working hard to get a promotion at the bank she works at. One day, an old Gypsy type lady named Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) walks in,and asks Christine if she can please have a third extension on her mortgage because she’s been sick. It ends up being Christine’s call, after she talks to her manager. Feeling the pressure of wanting to get that promotion,she turns down Mrs. Ganush because it would lose the bank, money.

Mrs. Ganush doesn’t like that, so she eventually puts a curse of the Lamia on Christine after attacking her. Christine eventually goes to a seer named Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) with her boyfriend, Clay Dalton (Justin Long) after feeling the effects of the curse start to take hold. Rham Jas tells her the disturbing news, that she has three days,and then the Lamia will come and drag her to hell. Read more »

Alright I just got back from seeing the new “The Hangover” movie,and let me just say that it was definitely no let down. A brief synopsis of the film is that four guys, Phil Wenneck,Stu Price,Alan Garner, and Doug Billings take a trip to Las Vegas to have a bachelor party for the groom to be, Doug Billings. But an accidental spiking of their drinks apparently leads to one overly crazy night that they can’t remember the next day. Unfortunately for them, the repercussions are the same as they wake up to a torn up hotel sweet,chickens,a growling tiger,and a baby in the closet. Oh, and one other thing. They can’t find Doug who is to be married the next day.

They take one hilarious adventure through the town of Las Vegas in an attempt to retrace their steps in hopes of finding their lost groom. They face a lot of trouble along the way, that they are completely responsible for, but have no clue as to what they did. Read more »

In this action packed film, Justin Chatwin plays Goku who is a martial arts master trained by his Grandpa Gohan (Randall Duk Kim). However, he’s bullied at school because he made a promise to his Grandpa that he would never fight anyone. While, not the most important part of the movie, it is entertaining to see the creative reasoning he uses to overcome the details of that promise to eventually kick those bullie’s butts. I just love that kinda stuff. Continuing on, his grandpa gives him one of the sacred seven “Dragonballs” as an 18th birthday present. He also teaches Goku to never forget who he is which turns out to be a very important piece of advice in the movie.

Lord Piccolo played by “Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s” James Martsters returns from banishment to reclaim the seven “Dragonballs”. Read more »
