I went to Horrible Bosses over the the weekend.

Pretty funny movie all around. Jennifer Anniston is smoking hot and says some unbelievably dirty things in the movie.
In a movie called "Employee of the Month" (there are two out there-this one has Matt Dillon) Jenna Fisher from "The Office" plays a hooker who is sent to Matt Dillon's room to cheer him up. I was FLABERGASTED by the things this sweet innocent young lady was saying. I was in such shock, I had to watch that scene about 6 times to be sure of what I was hearing! Once I was sure, I watched it a few more times just for fun.

Today I watched an Israeli movie called "Lebanon". If you like intense war movies and don't mind reading throughout, check this out. It was on Encore Drama last night and should be on again, but to be honest, I didn't check. I can't say I liked how it ended since it ended without an end....if that makes sense, but very good movie in which an Israeli tank crew follows a group of paratroopers in the 1982 Lebanon War though a small town.

One thing that makes it intense, though you see through the scopes what they are looking at, the entire movie takes place IN the tank.

Men are steel, the tank is only iron.

Ok, another one. "The Maiden Heist". Watched it last night. Nice little movie about three Boston Art Museum security guards who upon finding out their favorite pieces are to be shipped to Denmark, decide to take them for themselves. Funny stuff, starring Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman and William H. Macy.

Even my folks (puritans at heart) could enjoy this film, so it's safe to watch with anyone, unless the sight of William H. Macy's butt might offend you.

DRIVE is a must watch. Very evocative of early Michael Mann. Dark and well done.

COURAGEOUS Movie Trailer - YouTubeC
Courageous. Haven't seen it yet, but it looks good (if not a little too wholesome, not a bad thing)
As of today, only playing in Boston, Lawrence, and Danvers...might go check it out on my day off.

We just watched The Town last night, directed, written and starring Ben Affleck and Jeremy Renner from The Hurt Locker, another movie that I highly recommended. As you may know, The Town is about a Boston bank robber who doesn't really want to be a bad guy but was raised into a life of crime that he can't escape. I think it was worth the watch and the cast did a pretty good job with the dropped r's and general "badassness," unlike some other reproductions (Sean Penn & Tim Robbins in Mystic River, Alec Baldwin in The Departed, Kevin Costner in JFK, Diane Lane in Perfect Storm and Tom Hanks in Catch Me if you Can).

For the ladies, there are a couple of guys in this that are very easy on the eyes, including this little filet:

Saw it last night....not bad overall, but WAY too preachy & religious for my taste. I felt like I was at a Baptist revival a couple of times, the religious messages was so over-the-top.

They did do a good job with the technical aspects of police work, especially the ball-busting that goes on at roll call and on the street.

It LOOKS like a preachy movie, but I'm curious now. I don't mind preachy, sometimes I actually appreciate it just so long as it's presented in a way that's a bit subtle. I'll get the message, just please don't hit me over the head until I'm black and blue.

On the other end of the, "Horrible Bosses" is pretty funny. I wasn't dying laughing, but it was good and no matter what we do for a living, we can sometimes see one of these two guys as our boss.

Jennifer Anniston hitting on me would be, not sexual harrassment, but a DAMN BLESSING! Worth seeing for that.

Watched the 2nd and 3rd parts of "PROHIBITION" on PBS last night. I had seen Pt. 1 earlier last week. What a terrific show. Ok, not a MOVIE per se, but close enough, a FILM by Ken Burns.

A couple of interesting points.

1) The "Drys" came up with the idea of 'income tax' so the government didn't have to rely on the taxation of booze and would have no argument about keeping booze for revenue.

2) Al Smith, a ROMAN CATHOLIC Democrat ran twice for president having the REPEAL of prohibition a big part of his platform. (He didn't get the nomination the first time)

3) The Klu Klux Klan was a staunch proponent of prohibition.

4) Republicans helped push it through, Democrats pushed it out. I guess the Democrats weren't always bad.

Terrific show, if you like to partake now and then and if you enjoy history, check it out. A typical Ken Burns masterpiece.

Put it this way; they practically write the religious message on a sign, then smash you over the head with it repeatedly.

As I said, it wasn't a bad movie overall.....entertaining and quite funny in some spots. Once scene shows a deputy talking with his wife, and the sheriff calls on the other line. He says "I have to take this honey, I'll see you after work. I love you", then takes the call from the sheriff.

As he ends the call with the sheriff, the deputy says "I love you", hangs up, then says "No, no....crap". Should I call him back?" and his partner says "Why, to tell him you don't?"

That movie does look interesting, sort of a different take on "Logan's Run" which I've never seen. Justin Timberlake has really impressed me over the years. I'm still not big on his music, but his acting is suprisingly good and he's been a howl in Saturday Night Live! I have lots of respect for those who can easilly make fun of themselves and their public personna and he's done that time and time again, and it seems sincere, unlike......oh God, dare I say it? I have to. Uh, hmmm, oh shit.


Ok, Ok, CHUCK NORRIS! There, I said it and I know of course he's going to destroy me somehow. I've read all that stuff, but I felt it had to be said.

Pray for me.

I can't review what I haven't seen, but this is a movie I GOTTA see in the theatre. I recall seeing "The Tuskegee Airmen" when it aired several years ago. This looks like it could be, and I pray it isn't, a kind of "Pearl Harbor v. "Tora, Tora, Tora!" situation, but I'm willing to give it a shot hoping it isn't.

Went last night to see Tower Heist. Very funny! Hubby and I both laughed almost nonstop. Semi-predictable ending, but it doesn't take anything away from enjoying the rest of it.

Captain America was a great movie. I am partial to Super Hero Movies but this one is better than most. Also saw Green Lantern and wasn't that impressed. It was ok but not great.

Bad Teacher was terrible and not funny at all. My wife and I both fell asleep.
