Review: Law Abiding Citizen


law abiding citizenGerard 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’s 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’s book.  A smug lawyer just trying to protect his “stats” does what all self-centered, egotistical public figures would do: slither out a “victory” (if the common conception of “victory” 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.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – New Album Up From Below


Stumbling through i-tunes looking for the perfect music for the perfect beer and perfect night and low and behold what slaps me in the face–Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.  At first glance, I’m thinking old 60s band, they had the big bus, the hazy photos, the long, the frivilous clothing and the care free spirit.  But no, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’s first full length release was sometime in July 2009.  Double click on the first song.  Sounding good.  Then the second, the third…the sixth and so on.  Hook, line and sinker, I was snagged and reeled in without a fight.  An album all to its own with smoothingly catchy beats and clear concise lyrics.  The rythmic beats make you tap your foot and beat the wheel.  There’s something special about Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.  This album without a doubt is a must to check out and they’ll be cruzing through California throughout the next month.  I’ve never seen them live, but from the reviews it sounds like a must see.  Only fitting way to finish this up would be with a “peace.”
