And yet another comic book, I was exhausted when I got out. A little too much kissing for my taste and the inconsistencies drive me a little crazy but over all I do like the Wolverine. This is an enjoyable waste of a couple of hours.


Very entertaining, I did not realize this was based on a graphic novel. It is funny and a lot of shooting with minimal kissing. When Helen Mirren gives you the back of her hand you go flying through the air. When my mom did it to me I laughed and the next time she used a frying pan! “I did not see that one coming” (inside joke see the movie).

Kon Tiki

This is the story of five feeble minded Norwegians and one Swede who set out to cross the Pacific Ocean on a leaky balsa wood raft. It is unbelievable but this is history not fiction. The adventure is astonishing and very well told.
You won’t be disappointed.
BTW: Kon means go and Tiki means God so the phrase is Go with God.

The Way Way Back

A great coming of age movie. You know the story but this has enough hooks to be absolutely adorable. Bring your hanky and prepare to laugh.

Theater Rant
So my cheap theater Cinebarre raised its prices to $6 and eliminated senior Sundays so I branched out this week to the Guild 45. Been a long time since I was here because of the lack of parking but that was not even a challenge at 2pm on a Tuesday. Now a lot of people think I am a BIG BEHIND but the actual behind is rather small. It almost did not fit in these seats! and I was on top of my companion. Why can’t they remove two seats per row and spread out a little.
Probably won’t be back.

Much Ado About Nothing

This is filmed in black and white. It was filmed in this guy’s house with his friends. Life has really passed me by. My talented friends can only drink beer and fart. It will take you about 10 minutes to get used to the old English. Then Shakespeare kicks in and you can enjoy the ride.

The Lone Ranger

Silver steals this movie. Go just to see this amazing horse.
The movie is told ala Princess Bride, a young boy listening to an ancient Tonto in a side show. The story told by Tonto is of course a little different but not much; however I don’t remember the part of Helena Bonham Carter’s ivory leg in the TV series. Please note the Lone Ranger ONLY shoots the guns out of the bad guys hands.
A lot of the critics have panned this movie. In our theater there was applause at the end. Well deserved, I say – go to this movie!

The Heat

Maybe Go
Costello: Well you know I’ve never met the guys. So you’ll have to tell me their names, and then I’ll know who’s playing on the team.
Abbott: Oh, I’ll tell you their names, but you know it seems to me they give these ball players now-a-days very peculiar names.
Abbott: Well, let’s see, we have on the bags, Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third…
Costello: That’s what I want to find out.
Abbott: I say Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know’s on third.
Costello: Are you the manager?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: You gonna be the coach too?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: And you don’t know the fellows’ names?
Abbott: Well I should.
Costello: Well then who’s on first?
Abbott: Yes.

Abbott and Costello –The best comedy pair ever!
Crosby and Hope – Hilarious
Susan Saint James and Jane Curtin in Kate and Allie — Great!
Rizzoli and Isles — sexy and funny
Bullock and McCarthy a miss.
I wanted to love this but (and this is the kettle calling the pot black) McCarthy is just too rotund to come across as a tough cop. The movie does have its moments though. Check out Jane Curtin.
