Fast Five Beginners

I recently watched a wonderful movie called The Beginners, starring Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer (aka: Captain Von Trapp).

It was so good!  God, I'm a great movie critic, aren't I.  Seriously, it was funny and touching and moving without being sentimental or treacly.

I highly recommend it.

Here is the trailer:

Or if you are in the mood for mindless action and menz with gunz, then watch Fast Five with Vin Diesel and my favorite bad-ass mofo, The Rock.

Excuse me, I mean Dwayne Johnson.

Look at my Guns!!!

I surprisingly liked the movie, although I missed out on Fast and Furious movies 2-4.  Don't worry, since all the movies are basically the same, you don't have to watch them in order.

Here's my conversation with Matt while watching Fast Five.

Me:  Vin Diesel is weird.  When he talks it kinda sounds like he's drunk.

Matt: I like Vin.

Me: Well, he does have a good name.  But he's no Rock.


Me: What kind of car is that?


Me: I think the Rock definitely eats his Wheaties.

Matt: He's juicin'.

Me: Naw... that's all natural.  And why are his muscles always GLISTENING?  He's all shiny and moist.


Me: What kind of car is that?

Matt: His muscles ARE shiny!

Me: I know.  I think he has his own personal "oiler".  Someone runs up with a spray bottle and spritzes him in between takes.


Me: What kind of car is that?

The End.

I am a HUGE fan of The Rock. I don't even care that his movies are awful. I save them for when I have to fold laundry - then it becomes "Me Time."

Did you know that Vin Diesel's first role was the voice of The Iron Giant, one of my favorite animated films ever?

I LOVED The Beginners!

I just got finished watching The Big Year and I was surprised how much I liked that too. It's not really a comedy and it has touching moments.

Also, Drive with Ryan Gosling was good.
