Movies!

Such a sad list for me..... On Monday I saw my first movie of the year (hint Hollywood, because I used to be one of your best customers.... to the tune of 100+ movies in the theaters a year) and it was great! And its not like I don't live a 6-7 minute walk from a movie theater or anything.....

Knocked Up was fricking funny. A tad long and maybe dragging at a point or 2 but overall a lot of fun. It handled the situation really well (the pro-life crowd must be so torn by this movie.... the people here represent the lifestyle that they must abhore but they make the correct decision) and also did a great job dealing with relationships after they have been together a while (the sister and her husband). Hopefully my gf recovers her hearing from me laughing so much at this movie.... A very solid A from this very picky reviewer....

Now I really need to see: "Hot Fuzz", "28 Weeks Later", Spiderman 3 and Shrek the 3rd...

As a pro-lifer, I didn't find any problem with the message of the movie. If anything, I thought the excessive use of the "F word" was a bit, well, excessive.

The way I see it, the message of the movie is for men to grow up and take responsibility for their actions. I'm willing to overlook the crude nature of the film because it absolutely needed to be delivered that way to take the message to it's target audience - the ones who need to hear it the most (i.e. the pothead, life sucks, "I hate my Dad", do-nothing generation). :)

Very funny, though.
