“If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.” Well you can find these merciless renegades on the big screen beginning June 11, 2010 says FOX. Although many of us were yet to be born when the orginal A-Team made it’s debut, we know alot about the mercenaries and their cartoon like over-the-top use of violence. The original cast will not be reappearing in this recreation but the lead roles have been handed off to some surprising characters. Col. John “Hannibal” Smith will be played by Liam Neeson (A** kicking dad from Taken), Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck is played by Hangover’s Bradley Cooper, Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus, Mr. T’s famous role, will be played by known other than ultimate cage fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and Cpt. “Howling Mad” Murdock finds Sharlto Copley of District 9 in this role. Gorgeous Jessica Biel, can also¬†be found making a appearance in this epic summer blockbuster. The iconic black and red van that even made an appearance in an episode of Family Guy will finally be reclaimed by the ex-special forces team in one of the many must see movies of summer 2010. I pity the fool who doesn’t check out this flick!
Welcome to the first installment of¬† “Holy s%&t you gotta see this flick”.¬† This is when I get to tell you (the reader/watcher) the movie that I think you have never seen and must see before the crypt comes for ya!
For our first time I’ll be gentle.¬† Over the years i have watched millions of movies (and no that doesn’t include the ones i hide under the special file name “homework”) and one of the best is Grandma’s Boy.
This movie combines video games, herbal remedies, the most awkward foursome in history, and jokes about The Matrix.¬† Alex Covert plays the protagonist and essentially is the only 35 year old nerd doing what he loves for a living, playing video games.
Alex plays surprisingly enough, a guy named Alex.¬† He initially lives with one of his friends but once the rent gets passed 6-months over due, the land lord (Rob Schneider) makes a house call.¬† After finding out that his roommate had been spending their rent on Filipino hookers, Alex tries to find shelter elsewhere.¬† A short stay with colleague Jeff (Nick Swardson) came to a conclusion (literally!) abruptly and¬† Alex ventures to live with lovable Grandma (Doris Roberts).
The cast includes Adam Sandler’s regulars (Covert, Peter Dante, Schneider, and Jonathan Loughran), classics (Shirley Jones, Shirley Knight, Doris Roberts, Kevin Nealon), and many up-and-coming cinematic smart-asses (Jonah Hill, Nick Swardson, and Joel Moore).
Now in summary, for those of you in the dark the last few years, Grandma’s Boy combines a trio of great things (illegal substances, video games, and 70+ year old women getting lit!) and is a comical must see.¬† Until next time, enjoy the cinema!
Director Guy Ritchie is synonymous with genius.¬† For anyone who has ever seen “Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels” or “Snatch” knows exactly what I am talking.¬† Combine genius with the genuine wise-ass with ADHD that is Robert Downey Jr. , and you have a thoroughly enjoyable flick.
Downey Jr (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man, Back to School) continues to entertain us with his lashful tongue and brash nature.¬† His faithful side-kick Dr. Watson (played by Jude Law) is at his side sternly with his trusty revolver.¬†¬† As with Downey’s actual life, there was turmoil stemming from drugs and women.¬† His evil temptress Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams) played the reoccurring mystery-migraine inflicting trouble maker that enticed Holmes to pursue dangerous leads.
The Demonic perp played by one of Director Guy Ritchie’s¬† often used actors Mark Strong (RocknRolla, Revolver) as Lord Blackwood.¬† Seemingly-Satanic Blackwood attempts to over take The Parliament along with the world!¬† As with certain political strategies today driven by fear tactics, it too failed miserably.
There’s drama, action, woman, and¬† British banter… Is there really anything else you need to have a good time? Well maybe a Lazy Boy instead of the movie theater deluxe-cushion ( a combination of old popcorn and stale saltines stacked together) and a nice imported pint but hey, I’m not picky!
‚ÄúRock-N-Roll, or as your grandmother knew it as ‚ÄėThe Devil‚Äôs Music‚Äô, has once again made its stain on pop culture.‚ÄĚ Now that the 80 year old typing on his 30 year old dusty typewriter is done and passed away lets talk about a movie. ‚ÄúPirate Radio‚ÄĚ is a fantastic movie depicting the struggles that many teenagers in the UK had to endure to shake their ‚Äúbons-bons to some tunage‚ÄĚ, also known as music to those of pseudo-language illiterate followers. Phillip Seymour Hoffman (A.K.A. The flippin‚Äô Man) has torn up the silver screen again with his dramatic (HA!) representation of ‚ÄúThe Count‚ÄĚ.
For those cinematic enthusiasts (junkies) like myself, I found it refreshing to see Hoffman in a comedic role that was similar to his mastering of Lester Bangs in ‚ÄúAlmost Famous‚ÄĚ. Combine an American smart-ass with British dry-humor and the result is a fantastic flipping movie! The ensemble cast includes some British royalties: Bill Nighy (Underworld Trilogy, Hot Fuzz), Rhys Ifans (The Replacements, Notting Hill), Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead), and Rhys Darby (Flight of The Conchords, 7 Days). Rhys Darby isn‚Äôt exactly British but he is from New Zealand so who the hell knows the difference?!
This movie combines factual occurrences with minor blips of imagination to illustrate the power that the British Government used to implement to ATTEMPT control over the sound waves. Fortunately for those teenagers and young souls living in the UK, there was a group of rebels willing to put it all on the line to stick it to the man! Go for the music and stay for the anarchy!!!!
Gerard Butler has returned to his role as a bad ass mamma-jamma.¬† Butler throws away the girly-man persona that he had in The Ugly Truth, and returns to a god-like murdering machine.¬† I think anyone who watches this movie will agree; do not f**k with this man‚Äôs family.¬† A trained genius with only one thing in mind, vengeance against the system and all those involved.¬† Butler was reminiscent of Einstein spliced with the old-fashioned Arnold from Terminator.
Now for the bad news: Jamie Foxx is in the movie as well.¬† The man is a great dramatic actor (Ray, Collateral) but his acting in this film was predictable as a children‚Äôs book.¬† A smug lawyer just trying to protect his ‚Äústats‚ÄĚ does what all self-centered, egotistical public figures would do: slither out a ‚Äúvictory‚ÄĚ (if the common conception of ‚Äúvictory‚ÄĚ involves robbing a man of moral justice, then sure do the victory dance).¬† What he does not know is that Butler is going to kick the dog snot out of him on the screen and in the box office.
Now Jamie Foxx aside, this movie was intense.¬† Butler does a sensational job of portraying an inspired methodical genius.¬† For anyone who enjoyed Gamer, this movie is a must see.
This will explain it way better than I can:
“After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut LEE MILLER becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity – and simply stay alive.

Driven by the powerful music of ANGELS & AIRWAVES, ‚ÄúLOVE‚ÄĚ explores the fundamental human need for connection and the limitless power of hope‚Ä¶ A high-impact visual adventure, that resonates a common truth, that everyone has a story to tell and something even greater to leave behind.” (Apple Trailers)
