Know What TODAY Is?

Hump  Movie Day!

That's right, I spent the day in the movie theater, tirelessly watching movies so I could give you honest reviews!

Saving Mr. Banks

Tom Hanks has the Midas touch.  I absolutely loved this movie.  It is heart warming and has some fun moments as well.  Bring a tissue, there are a few moments when you will need it.  I am hoping that Disney decides to make a biopic that digs further into the life of Walt (ie Aviator) using Tom as the title again.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Man, there is a lot of walking in all of these LOTR movies.  I saw this in the RD 3D version and let's just say I was completely blown away.  I felt like I was in the movie.  The last time I have seen 3D used this good was in Avatar.  Story line was great, and Smaug steals the movie.  p.s. Legolas is back!

The Legend of Hercules

Kellan Lutz is back and bigger than ever (muscles that is).  I liked the progression of the story that tells how and why Hercules got his powers, I just wanted to see some mythical creatures.  He had to fight some soldiers from his father's army, hardly a match.  The lightning bolt trick at the end was pretty cool though.  I would wait til this one comes out on video, but Kellan, you are still the man!

Catching Fire

Ummmm...  I didn't think I could like this series any more (Hunger Games), but upon seeing this installment proved me wrong.  I was never into Twilight, LOTR, or HP, but this series has me hooked.  The whole premise of the story seems so real, like this kind of government could happen to us if there was a revolt or something.  Scenery was amazing and let's not even start on the action in this movie.  Make sure you have a tissue for when Mags BLEEEEEEEP.  Don't want to spoil it for you!

The Wolf of Wallstreet

This is exactly how I believe the filthy rich live if they want to.  Leo DiCaprio, Scorsese, Hill, etc... (and Chris Riggi, a past TeeJay Interview) all are outstanding in this movie of fast money, fast cars, and even faster uses of the F-Bomb.  It was extremely entertaining but not a movie that I would take my mother to see.  Definately a guys movie, but the performances of all involved are outstanding.  Makes me want to get back into the stockmarket!
