Movie Review: Invincible.

29 12 2006


Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Greg Kinnear, Elizabeth Banks, Kirk Acevedo, Lola Glaudini.
Running Time: 1 hour, 48 minutes
Rating: PG
Grade: C

When the coach of Vince Papale’s beloved hometown football team hosted an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time–no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found this way. Certainly no one like Papale–a down-on-his-luck, 30 year-old, substitute teacher and part-time bartender who never even played college football. But against these odds, Papale made the team and soon found himself living every fan’s fantasy–moving from his cheap seats in the upper deck to standing on the field as a professional football player.

This movie was good. Not the best movie I’ve seen but I enjoyed the storyline and the message behind the whole thing. Mark Wahlberg did a great job portraying Vince Papale’s character and I had that warm giddy feeling in my stomach the further he got in the whole Eagle’s camp. But it ended abruptly and I guess I was waiting for a grand ending and it never came so because of that, I gave it a C.

So good, but not great.





One Tree Hill was A Rerun.

29 12 2006


…but I still watched it.

You see, it was the episode where Nathan tries to throw the Championship game and then Haley finds out she’s having a baby boy and Brooke turns into Bitchy Brooke to Peyton and…Lucas realizes he loves Peyton.

WOO HOO!

Mulu missed it the first time it aired so I called her to make sure she watched it and she did. But having seen the show again, little things started to stand out more for me. The biggest one though is Karen’s pregnancy.

On the way to the game, Deb tells Karen that it’s really funny how Keith was there for Dan’s baby and now, Dan is going to be there for Keith’s baby. Now, really…think about this for a bit. Karen Roe has a baby, Lucas Scott by Dan Scott and is now pregnant with Dan’s brother Keith Scott’s baby, making her pregnant with Dan’s nephew and Lucas’ brother or sister/cousin.

DISFLIPPINGUSTING!

Why the hell did I ever want Karen to be with Keith? That’s some nasty shit…Karen needs to go back to New Zealand, find Andy and bring him back so that he can raise Karen’s baby and what’s really going on with Karen, is she EVER going to have a baby in wedlock? Both of her kids were conceived when she wasn’t married and she gets mad at Lucas for having sex? I mean, come on now…it’s not like he’s got any good role models to model his sex life after.

Anyway, the other thing I noticed and actually remember is #13 who plays for The Ravens is one hot guy! I missed him last time around but this time, I was all eyes for him.

Last night, I also watched Friday Night Lights and I really like that show, I’m thinking that I’m going to catch up on that show before it comes back on from the hiatus, because seriously…it was really good last night. Also, I have to remember to check out Rome before that comes back sometime in January, cause I promised my friend from work that I’d peep it out because her and the hottie gay guy that we work with told me to watch it…the hottie gay guy thinks I’m cute, Awwww…what a waste! Ugh.

Hmm, that seems to be all that my mind is capable of throwing out to you guys, so yeah…I’m done.

Peace out…oh and I’m not at work today because I’m still sick but I’ll be back tomorrow. So be gentle with my work email guys (Holly, Grace, Izzy, Jazz and Daphne.) Ames, I’m gonna call you and bug you at work, haha. So you can hear how horrible I sound right now.

Peace out guys, I’m getting kicked off the computer because Brenna wants to play Disney Channel.

Kids.





I Need To Vent!

28 12 2006


So back in September, our company bought out a small business company and we’re in the process of merging both companies into one big, gigantic powerhouse company. All of the small business people moved into our building and a lot of our people moved to different parts of the building. Our AR department got moved downstairs as did our HR department, some of our direct businessmen got shipped to the next building and this is all in the hopes that we’d stop being two different companies and start being one company, united. We’re supposed to be this great big happy family, right?

Wrong.

I’ve heard nothing but complaints from people in our company about how rude and disrespectful their people are and their people don’t smile and say anything to our people when we cross paths in the hallway.

Let’s just say that the happy merge the higher uppers were hoping for is just not going to happen…not anytime soon anyway.

Now me, personally I say hi to everyone in the hallway, whether you’re from their company or ours, I’ll say hi to you because you guys brought donuts for us to eat last week and man, NO ONE has done that here in such a long time…myself included. LOL. Now, my friends have all had their complaints about this stupid shit from this department and that stupid shit from that department but I’ve always been the one that said, “Well, she was nice to me.”

Not today.

Okay, I’m the Contracts Department Admin and the department fax machine is in my office. When faxes come in, I usually just run them over to whoever it belongs to, since its just down the hall. I don’t have to do it, but I do because I’m nice like that. Now, if the owner of the fax is on the phone, I’ll quietly hand them the fax and they’ll take it, mouth a “thank you” and I’ll be on my merry way. I don’t try to converse with them while they’re on the phone, but I don’t ever use the Inbox outside my boss’ office, mainly because some of the stuff that gets faxed to them (both of my bosses, the boss and then my boss boss) shouldn’t be left around for just anyone to walk by and grab. They get mods for different contracts faxed to them, or memo’s from clients and well, they’ve always just said to hand it to them, so I do.

Well this new chick, we’ll call her Hoecakes from the small business company we bought out works in our building now, she works in the Contracts Department so I support her now as well. I’ve been told time and time again that she’s a bitch but I never believed it because she was always civil to me, she was never rude or disrepectful until today.

So Hoecakes gets a fax today and I walk it over to her office. When I get there, she’s on the phone so I’m trying to just hand it to her and leave but she won’t even acknowledge me. So I look for someplace to just set it down where she can see it, but her desk is littered with errant papers and there’s a folder holder on top of her desk like the one shown to the right.
While still on the phone, she points to that stupid folder holder. Does she want me to put it there? If I do, the papers are going to fall off, I mean, the thing is not level, there’s no way that it’ll stay right? So I try to just hand it to her and she then points to her door, so now I’m just thinking, “Would you just grab this shit and let me leave already?” So there I am, trying to just set the fax down when she sighs all loud like and says into the phone, “Can you hold on, Bob?”

She pierces me with this withering look that reminded me of the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz and then she points to her door and says, “There’s a box hanging outside my door called an Inbox, why don’t you try using that sometime?”

What the eff?

I could only stand there and gape at her because I was blown away that she would talk to me that way. Now, I don’t know if that’s what they used back at her small business but that’s not how we do things here in the Contracts Department at OUR company, she don’t work for her company anymore, she works for OURS, so bitch you gotta do things OUR WAY…oh and before I could reply she snatches the fax out of my hands and barks out, “Just give it to me and get out”

Oh.Hell.No.

Did I say anything mean to her? Oh hell no.. Am I going to forget this little thing? You bet your bottom dollar that I won’t be forgetting this anytime soon and she wants to see bitch? I’ll show her bitch…

Stupid bitch.





Movie Review: The Devil Wears Prada.

28 12 2006


Starring: Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci, Adrian Grenier, Simon Baker.
Running Time: 106 minutes
Rating: PG-13
Grade: C

In the dizzying world of New York fashion, where size zero is the new 2, six is the new 8, and a bad hair day can end a career, Runaway Magazine is the Holy Grail. Overseen with a finely manicured fist by Miranda Priestly–the most powerful woman in fashion–Runway is a fearsome gauntlet for anyone who wants to make it in the industry. To make Runway the fashion bible of New York and therefore the world, Miranda has let nothing stand in her way–including a long line of assistants that didn’t make the cut. It’s a job no self-respecting person can survive, yet it’s an opportunity a million young women in New York would kill for. A stint as Miranda’s assistant could blast-open the doors for recent college graduate Andy Sachs. More college drab than haute couture, she stands alone among the small army of “Clackers” on staff at Runway–superslim fashion divas clacking their stilettos down the halls of the magazine’s Manhattan headquarters. But when Andy comes in for the job, it dawns on her that making it in this industry will take more than drive and determination. And her ultimate test stands before her in head-to-toe Prada. Miranda can spin the fashion world like a basketball but has a devil of a time finding and keeping a good assistant. Andy is completely wrong for the job. But she has something the rest of them don’t: she refuses to fail. To become the perfect assistant, Andy will need to make herself over in Miranda’s image. Soon, much to her boyfriend’s dismay, she can talk the talk, walk the walk and never again confuse Dolce with Gabbana. But the more of life she sees through Miranda’s eyes, the more she begins to grasp that Miranda’s world is a fabulous but lonely one–and that sometimes great success depends on great sacrifice. But at what cost?

So this is a book turned movie and since I didn’t read the book, I didn’t know what to expect. I actually didn’t choose to watch this movie either, my brother’s girlfriend did and though I wasn’t all that excited to watch it, I wasn’t really bored or anything with it either but for me this movie was just average.

Simon Baker was a total stud in this movie and maybe if there was more of him I would have liked this movie a little more. I didn’ t not like it, I liked it well enough but it didn’t grab me. I enjoyed it, I laughed, I gasped but I didn’t really get all wrapped up in this movie as I did with other movies, especially the movies that I watched this weekend.

Was it good? Yeah, would I pimp it out? Maybe…and it’s a really big maybe.





Movie Review: Clerks II.

28 12 2006


Starring: Brian Christopher O’Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Rosario Dawson, Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Trevor Ferhman.
Running Time: 98 minutes.
Rating: R
Grade: C

Ten years ago best friends Dante Hicks and Randal Graves were New Jersey mini-mall clerks still slacking off together in their early 20s. Now working in the fast-food universe, Dante and Randal have managed to maintain, and even hone, their in-your-face attitudes, agile skill with vulgarities and unbridled love of screwing the customers. But they’re also faced with such shocking prospects as marriage, leaving Jersey and finding real careers. Dante and Randal invade the world of Mooby’s fast food restaurant, where the slogan is “I’m Eating It.” Behind the counter, where the only other employees are an uber-nerd and an entirely too sexy manager, Dante and Randal are free to offend anybody and everybody who so much as orders fries in their inimitably irreverent way. But, even as riotous debates rage between them over such burning matters as George Lucas v. Peter Jackson v. Jesus, change is on the horizon. When Dante announces that he’s going to leave Jersey forever and marry Emma Bunting, Randal plots a going-away party so shocking it will draw the police, the fire department and potential protests from PETA, while altering their lives forever.

Okay I wasn’t expecting to like this movie all that much because I didn’t see the first Clerks, but my brother wanted to watch this movie so I decided, why not? I’m glad I watched it because it was one of those silly, funny movies that had you laughing from the beginning to the end.

Elias was friggin’ hilarious! I loved that weirdo nut job! When Marshall from Alias started arguing and then threatening to kick Randal’s ass because of the things he was saying about Frodo and Sam (which I totally agree with and love the movie anyway), I couldn’t stop laughing. But when Elias showed his LOTR Ring that was hanging around his neck, holy hell I was rollin’…

But my favorite characters of this movie was frickin’ Jay and Silent Bob. Jay mostly, when Bob plays his song and Jay say, “Ohh” and then proceeds to put chapstick on all the while he’s singing provacatively, “Do you to f**k Me? Cause I’d wanna f**k me!” Oh my hell, HILARIOUS! And don’t even get me started when Emma and Dante come out of Mooby’s and Jay is bare ass naked with his junk tucked underneath and he’s looking up with his trench coat open, dude I almost peed in my pants it was so funny…

Would I recommend this movie? If you’re up for some really retarded comedy, then yeah put this one in and sit back and watch for some good laughs, some stupid dialogue and just to laugh at stupid guys…I enjoyed it!





Movie Review: Grid Iron Gang.

28 12 2006


Starring: Duane “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Dunn, Xzibit, Leon Rippy.
Running Time: 2 hours.
Rating: PG-13
Grade: B+

The uplifting story of detention camp probation officer Sean Porter, who creates a high-school-level football team from a ragtag group of dangerous teenage inmates as a means to teach them self-respect and social responsibility. He is joined in this experiment by co-worker, Malcolm Moore. But Porter must first overcome almost universal resistance from the powers that be — his skeptical bosses and coaches at rival high schools who don’t want their players mixing it up with convicted criminals on the football field.

I really enjoyed watching this movie. The Rock did a great job portraying Sean Porter, the probation officer turned football coach of the Gridiron Gang. There were times though when he was yelling at the kids that I would mutter to myself, “Do you smell what the Rock is cookin’?” haha, but other than that, it was a good role for The Rock. Showed his sensitive side, which I thorougly enjoyed.

This reminded me of all those football movies that I’ve watched but I still enjoyed this one. I was also pleasantly surprised to see Mulu’s old boss’s brother in law, Setu in this movie. Setu played Junior in this movie and I thought he did a great job.

An emotional movie about the devastating effects that gang life has on kids these days. It was pretty trippy to see that this movie was filmed right here in L.A. close to my home. My high school played some of the high school that these kids ended up at, so that was pretty neat. I was rootin’ these little fellon’s on while they reached that level where they didn’t consider themselves losers anymore…I was so happy at the end when they weren’t losers anymore.

Yahoo…good movie.
