The Crow Murders Movies - Trainwreck
The movie was my wife's idea, and as usual in movies that are my wife's idea I ended up liking it more than she did. Go figure. I liked 50 Shades of Gray better than she did despite the fact that it would never make a movie list. I think I like Gone Girl better than she did, but we both kept feeling let down when the movie looked like it was going to end and then didn't. Trainwreck on the other hand I really loved. The wife thought it was meh, but in this instance I actually could consider this movie a top ten favorite of mine. Of course if I started thinking about it harder it probably wouldn't be but I wanted everyone to know that sentiment. Start to finish actually the movie was excellent and that is saying something since I usually can't sit still for a whole movie.
Now without spoiling it I want to give the rundown of emotions. The movie is hilarious, The celebrity athletes that all have small to medium parts in the movie are not only funny, but they have quirks which make them even more funny. The story is actually very good and engaging, as well as being slightly awkward to make them basically realistic. The movie especially doesn't even fit the mold you are expecting when you walk in. THAT is the best thing any movie can do in my opinion, and last but certainly not least, the ending is just wonderful, as well as shocking in it's own way.
Now I must say this movie is NOT for kids of any age. Teenagers might think it is funny but I wouldn't take one of my kids to go see it because it would make you completely uncomfortable. If it doesn't make you uncomfortable around your kids then stop being their friend and work on being their parent, UGH! On the other hand it is a hilarious movie to go to with a spouse or even a buddy. I give the movie 4 thumbs up and that is the advantage of having really long monkey toes. Go out and see the movie and if for some reason you don't trust me check out rotten tomatoes that appears to love this movie too.
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
