I watched two movies this weekend. First up was Goon. I REALLY wanted to see this. I had only pieces of information about it from a few different blog sites and as it is a Canadian film, there was not much in the way of a US release. It would not have drawn any big numbers (viewers and dollars spent). As a self-proclaimed hard core hockey fan, I just could not recommend this movie to really anyone. It is definitely more of a Guy Flick than a Chick Flick. Lots and lots of fighting, and that is not really my scene. I assume it was some sort of satirical comment on the fighting in the League, but somewhere I think it lost something. I laughed a couple of times, but once I got to the end and with the copious amount of blood, all that humor is lost on me.
Thankfully, today I watched a movie I much more enjoyed. I watched This Means War with Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. I think it is an example of a great balance between guy movie and girl movie. I loved the action and the heart of the movie. It was a lot of fun and made me laugh. Of course I was in love with Tuck because of the accent. Find me a girl who doesn't like a British accent. Adorable movie and I am really glad I went out and got it last night.
I still have yet to watch The Vow. I got it from Netflix, but just never got around to watching it and I just don't feel in the mood for a movie that looks very serious and potentially depressing. I need something upbeat or a good police thriller. Something juicy.
I am still muddling my way through the Fifty Shades Trilogy. I am on book three and cannot wait to be through this book so that:
- I can get back to my genre
- I can finally read all the commentary on the book.
And with that I am going to be off, for a few reasons, Blogger is acting funny (he actually kicked me out once and froze up my browser and now it appears he is halting my writing).
