Paul (Movie)

I’ve been waiting to see the movie Paul since they began advertising it and finally got to see it on opening day with a close family friend. I wasn’t quite sure she would like it but she laughed so all was good.

If you like Simon Pegg and Nick Frost then you will love this movie.  I’ve seen them together in a couple of movies together like Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz maybe 50 or 100 times each because I’m so addicted to these guys.  Seeing them in a movie with so many stars like Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman and Sigourney Weaver and a few SNL cast members was good and now it’s my new favorite movie.

I don’t want to give out any spoilers because it’s just really a good movie and you should go see it for yourself.

I do warn that if you are a born again that you don’t want to see this movie.  It’s rated R, it has a lot of cussing, 1 scene with drug use (smoking pot) and they might kill your belief system lol.  Other than that go see it.

Darrin doesn’t like these type of movies so if I didn’t see it in the theater with a friend then I’m pretty sure I would’ve had to wait for it to come out on DVD.  Waiting sucks doesn’t it?

The only thing that sucked was that the theater had it in one of the medium-sized theaters, they didn’t have it in the large theaters because it wasn’t as big as Battle: LA.  If they don’t do better this weekend then I’m sure it will get passed along into the smaller theaters.  I think it was good enough of a movie to get put into the large theaters.  But that’s just me.

Also on opening day there were only maybe 10 other people watching it at 11am.  I’m sure it will do much better tonight since it’s a Friday night though.  Then again, who goes to see a movie at 11am on a work day?  Well, besides us slackers, that’s who.

Here’s to hoping the movie makes millions so these guys will keep making movies together.

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

We went to the movies today and saw the movie How To Lose Friends & Alienate People.  First off let me just start by saying that my favourite actor now is Simon Pegg.  I loved him in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

With that said I wasn’t as happy with this movie as I was with the others.  From the advertisements that I’ve seen I thought his character was going to be a lot more annoying than he was.  I thought it was going to be pissing people off left and right to the very end.  It was a good movie, it just wasn’t what I expected.

I do recommend this movie because it has Simon Pegg in it and he is a very good and funny actor and it was a good movie.

Unfortunately, it was in the tiny theater with the tiny screen and we were the only 2 watching it.  I guess it’s been there for a while or it didn’t get high sales so they pushed it to the little screen.
