TrailerDVDBlu-rayby Mars

Hey everyone! I hope things are going well for you all this week. You know a lot of times I don't have the time to see all the movies I write about every week but I am happy to report that I saw all of them this week! This could be because I have a cold and so sitting and watching the movies sounded like a fine plan of action heh and they had been on my coffee table since last Weds. Anyways I hope my opinions on these movies help you choose which ones you want to see or at least give you a idea of what to expect.

Here we go yo.

The Bounty Hunter

Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler) is a bounty hunter whose latest gig is rather satisfying, as he finds out that the bail-skipper he must chase down is his own ex-wife, Nicole (Jennifer Aniston) -- but she has no intention of getting nabbed without a fight. Complicating matters, Nicole's wannabe-boyfriend, Stewart (Jason Sudeikis), joins the chase in this high-octane comedy from director Andy Tennant.

Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Gerard Butler
Director: Andy Tennant

This movie was somewhat entertaining. I think I have some sub-conscience hatred for Jennifer Aniston. For what it's worth my fiance thought it was a decent movie. Any movie she has been in I dislike to hate.

 

Our Family Wedding

Forest Whitaker and Carlos Mencia butt heads as two domineering dads forced to set aside their culture-clash differences and team up to plan their children's wedding, with only two weeks until the big day arrives. America Ferrera plays the pregnant bride-to-be opposite Lance Gross as her medical resident fiancé in this wacky comedy from writer-director Rick Famuyiwa.

Starring: Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia
Director: Rick Famuyiwa

I didn't really have too high of expectations going into watching this and it did not even meet my low expectations. I felt like it was trying so hard to be funny but it missed the mark most of the time. P.S. Carlos Mencia is super annoying.

 

Chloe

Suspecting her husband, David (Liam Neeson), of infidelity, doctor Catherine (Julianne Moore) hires sexy escort Chloe (Amanda Seyfried) to seduce him and test his faithfulness. But as Catherine checks in on Chloe's encounters with David, Chloe's reports become increasingly lurid. Soon, the relationships between all three intensify in unexpected ways. Renowned filmmaker Atom Egoyan directs this psychological drama.

Starring: Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried
Director: Atom Egoyan

This movie was crazy, erotic, sexy, suspenseful and somewhat predictable movie. All the acting was good and the story was decent and they really try and throw in some twists to mix it up. Overall it's worth a watch and Amanda has a smoking hot bod!

 

Greenberg

At a crossroads in his life in New York, Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller) takes some time to figure things out and travels to Los Angeles, where he house-sits for his brother and forges an unlikely bond with his brother's assistant, Florence (Greta Gerwig). Acclaimed director Noah Baumbach's (The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding) finely observed relationship comedy also stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Rhys Ifans.

Starring: Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig
Director: Noah Baumbach

This movie will not be liked by everyone. It's a very offbeat dramady. It kept me watching but I would not really want to see it again. Greta Gerwig was really down-to-earth and Ben Stiller did a decent job at being the serious guy with more then a few mental problems. Overall, the movie had it's charms and some decent laughs.

 

White Collar: Season 1

When con artist extraordinaire Neal Caffrey (Matthew Bomer) escapes a maximum security prison, his longtime nemesis -- FBI agent Peter Stokes (Tim DeKay) -- is right on his tail. Eager to avoid more jail time, a captured Neal makes Peter an offer he can't refuse. Using his extensive criminal know-how to help the Feds take down the cleverest of criminals, Neal must forge an unlikely alliance with his good-guy rival in this entertaining series.

Starring: Tim DeKay, Matthew Bomer
Director: Bronwen Hughes

I love this show! Every episode so far in some way has a very interesting twist. The characters have very unique personalities and you will easily take a liking to them - Matt Bomer really was the picture perfect choice for the main character, Neil Caffrey - charming looks and pitch perfect acting delivered the perfect character.

 

Oh there's one more worth mentioning that I almost forgot about!

Don't You Forget About Me     A tribute to John Hughes.  I love John Hughes!

That's it for the highlighted movies folks. Hope it helps you pick some good ones!

Here's a link for the rest of the DVDs and Blu-Rays. I would link them but I need to go take some meds for my cold and lay down before I work this evening. Have a great week people!

Coming Soon
