After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Well, you are sort of right on the money, Dan. But the important thing to remember is that the father is the antagonist/villain of the whole story. Remember how in the beginning there is a time lapse of eight and a half years? Imagine your whole childhood seeing your father as someone like Lord Business, and you probably would think he has been a villain forever. And the whole point of that ending was to show that he was more willing to follow his fatherly duties and change.

Just watched

Jack Ryan : Shadow Recruit

2/5 - jumpy, but lacking and cliche.

as a fan of bond and counter intelligence thrillers I was disappointed. My lady laughed out lloud at a few scenes, which i try not to do out of respect, but I couldn't get too upset because the theater was near empty and it was justifiable.

The trailer made it look soo good tho.

Thank you for watching that Urban and letting me know I don't have to for all of humanity. Staying far away.

Now I hate the Lego Movie because Last word has to... I mean Longo... oh fuck it.

Me and the kids just saw the Lego Movie. It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Got a kick out of all the references thrown in there for the adults and the kids loved it

I didn't even mind the ending even though the cynical side of me was thinking they put that in there to give us fathers the cats in the cradle guilt trip thing so we'd go out and buy some legos for our sons after the movie.

If I had one minor complaint, it'd be about the WiIl Ferrell character. He was basically doing the same bit he did from the Mega Mind movie where he'd always mispronounce words. So i guess mispronouncing the names of common household items is comedy now. I don't know, maybe it would've been funnier if he had not done the same exact thing in the other movie.

Still an enjoyable movie and well worth seeing.

Hell yes, I always laugh when someone says Spatular on Sponge Bob.

Saw Last Vegas on Sunday with my friends, it was actually a pretty funny movie. Starts off a bit slow and not that funny but it gets better.

Not only that but most certainly the Lego movie! I love it so much, definitely recommend to people who grew up on Legos no matter your age.

Endless Love

I went to see this movie expecting the dark, terribly tragic film that was the original, which I decided to skip and instead just read the synopsis of. Instead, I was treated to a typical chick flick with such lines as "love is worth fighting for" and "we don't have to do this ('this' being bang like tigers on the floor of her parent's den)" as said by a horny teen. All in all, it was better than 90% of other chick flicks, because it included Captain Pike being punched in the face and T-1000 was in it also, but it's really only a remake in name.

See, I went to see this movie because it's 5 buck tuesday, and romance movies make my lady happy so that I can do the weird stuff. And between this and Winter's Tale, I chose this easily. There were way less people in the theater, so I could sneak in 10 bucks worth of taco bell and no one would complain.

2.5/5

Justice League: War
It was pretty good. Never read the comic, though.

Got home from work today. Life has been hectic and I'm having a rough time, so I decided to take the boys to the Lego Movie. Thoroughly enjoyed it as did the boys. It is way more funny than it deserved to be and the meta-ness of it all was probably the best thing when you really start thinking about all the little clues and crossovers. So many of the jokes were great one and two liners (vitroovius' first scene) but the running gag was better. In regards to all the white text so far. I can white text too.For me, as a father, the big message wasn't that dad is an unfulfilled corporate douchebot, it was that he had taken something that he loved and boiled it down to the austere collection attitude. Pristine complete sets minus the Mylar covers. Honestly, we all do it as adults. We want to build something big but not necessarily unique. We want to get that 100% completion trophy despite the fact that usually it is the exact opposite of fun. The adult idea of fun at times is so different than a child's. I catch myself wanting to follow the instructions all the time while my kids are just happy slapping shit together with their Lego sets. I don't even enjoy video games the same way. The boys will sit there on LBP just dressing their characters for hours and laughing until they piss themselves. I lose interest in seconds. And instead of just enjoying creation or spontaneity or whatever it is they are receiving, I would go play something until I get validation (level up in COD or Tapped Out or a new trophy). But at some point you have to say, "fuck it" and just get down there and play without a goal or an endgame. I was touched by the ending because I'm a sappy man-child of a Dad and my take on it is a realization I had awhile back and a change I put in place.

4/5

Bret, I think what you said is what they were going for, and I think it works great. I don't get why people are so eager to assign some sort of political statement to it.

Non-Stop

Surprisingly not bad. There were a lot of really stupid moments (I DID IT BECAUSE OF 9/11! and when he has to save the little girl because LITTLE GIRL!) but besides that, it was pretty fun.

3.5/5

4.5/5

It may not be the best movie ever made, but it's definitely a classic, and the history behind it is monumental. It was originally meant to accompany the 1980 Summer Olympics, which the US boycotted. Regardless, many people who worked on it became very, very successful, notably the director of The Lion King, the director of FernGully, the director of Tron, and the director/writer of The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille.

I first saw this movie when I was a squirt, so I didn't fully appreciate just how big it really is. I remembered how the marathon ends, and that was about it. Watching it again, I realize, without a doubt, the messages and style of the movie have subconsciously stuck with me all this time. My perception of love, beauty, language, and humor can all be traced back to this, almost eerily. To top it all off, I believe that this is what ultimately lead me to be a furry.



Picture very much related.

Seeing it all again, I notice the quality of the soundtrack, the animation, and the voice talent. I learned a lot from the movie, and from researching it. I had no idea who Gilda Radner was, but after watching the movie and looking her up, I learned about her tragic, poetic death, and instantly felt as if I had lost a close friend, right then and there.

TL;DR, I love this movie, and I suggest it to anyone who likes classic cartoons, sports, or 70's/80's pop culture.

Saving Mr. Banks

Tom Hanks made me believe (again *sniff*) he was Walt Disney, enough to jog the memory to old tv clips I had seen as a child. Like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNQw9VApxsI (except perhaps in not in black and white)
Of course these clips were already years old at the time I had seen them as a child, but they kept Walt's intros intact during the Disney replays during the 80s so this movie still counts as nostalgia fuel for me. Makes me wish I was born a little earlier to really see Walt in action on television. Dunno when they stopped airing the intros with the guy, I swear Walt was more loveable than fucking Santa. Damn those grandfatherly mustaches.
but anyway, back to the movie..

So it starts off really well, I thought for sure the film would be a sleeper hit for the first 40 minutes, but then it just sort of becomes a marketing film for Disney...kinda. I mean, that's the entire plot anyway, so of course it would, but damn.
They actually get back into the original plot in the last 20 minutes of the film and that's great, but it felt secondary after the commercials aired. The sprinkled in bits of heart came off as more of a smokescreen to a larger agenda.

Still it's gotta be better than that shitty looking 300 prequel, and without seeing that shitty 300 prequel I can safely say that it was.

12 years a slave & Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter..and Spring

Both very good movies. Drew me in instantly.


The latter was beautifully made using very little dialogue to tell the story and using all kinds of buddhist symbols and images.
