What up, it's Zac and I went to see "About Time" this weekend. I know, here's my man card. I was thinking it'd be a romantic comedy (ROM COM) with Rachel McAdams but I was actually pleasantly surprised. It has alot more depth and meaning and it's something that you could take your folks to see if they visit you for Turkey Day. I don't know if you should take your kids (they might have questions here and there) but it's a solid movie and Bill Nighy's wit as the Patriarch in this eccentric English family is second to none. It has its funny parts, it's sad parts and you walk away with an appreciation for those close to you and the road that you've taken versus the road you didn't take..... Go see "About Time", it's unique and well done and guys won't lose their man card for seeing it :)
I went to Stone Theatres last week and saw ‘Captain Phillips’. It’s a must see! Soo good!
It was my first visit to Stone Theatres and the theatre is AWESOME! It’s brand new, incredibly nice and very clean. Stadium seating (a movie theatre must) and comfortable leather chairs. When I go to a movie right after work, I don’t always have time for dinner, so a good concession stand is a must. Stone Theatres has the best snacks! I got a fresh salted pretzel and my friend got White Castle Sliders (Yes, you read that correctly). Of course if pretzels, pizza, hot dogs, and sliders aren’t your thing – they have popcorn and candy.
Back to the movie – ‘Captain Phillips’ is about a cargo ship that was hijacked by Somali pirates off the coast of Africa. It’s based on the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the MV Maersk Alabama. Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi’s acting were exceptional throughout the entire movie. Even more impressive is that this was Barkhad Abdi’s (who played Muse, the Somali pirate captain) first time acting!
Abdi and the other cast members who portrayed the Somali pirates are all originally from Somalia. They are all very believable in their role, and add that to the realistic camera angles and set and it’s almost like you are watching the hijacking take place in real life instead of the movie.
There were one or two slow parts of the movie, but overall the movie flowed nicely and kept your attention the entire time. It’s engaging and emotional and a must see!
I've been wanting to see this movie and my girlfriend has been wanting to see it for even longer. It might have to do with Johnny Knoxville in an old man suit or that half the movie was filmed in North Carolina. Do you remember all those Johnny Knoxville sightings in Raleigh awhile back? Well it's cause he was filming this hilarious movie. It was #1 at the Box Office a couple weeks back and still #2 last week. Do not miss out on this for two reasons....one, cuz it's one of the funniest movies that I've seen in a loooooong time and two, you'll recognize alot of the places around Raleigh and Charlotte. There's even a heartwarming part to it, wrapped up in this road trip themed comedy. There's a little bit of Jackassesque parts sprinkled in throughout the movie but I liked how real it was. If you get some free time, go see Bad Grandpa.
Thanks for reading,
