Movies, Movies, Movies.
Man I need to find something else to talk about on the Shamoozal besides movies. I know you guys are counting on quality updates and right now I have nothing else besides movie talk. I’m the Jay Sherman of the Shamoozal. IT STINKS!
This sure doesn’t look like Ace Ventura to me.
THE NUMBER 23 – Jim Carrey takes on another serious role playing a normal dude who reads a creepy book titled The Number 23. As he reads it, he becomes pretty sure the book is based on his life. Apparently it drives him batcrap crazy and he becomes some paranoid psychopath trying to explain the logic behind his madness. It looks extremely weird… but in a good way. I’m curious to see how it all pans out. I’m a fan of Jim Carrey comedy, but I also enjoy him in The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine which were more serious than his usual stuff. This is drastically different than anything else he’s done so I wish him luck with it but I’d rather see him do some silly comedy. I’d like to check out this one eventually but not on opening weekend or maybe not in theaters at all. Someday….
The faces of justice in Reno, Nevada
Reno 911: Miami – I gotta say I thought the Comedy Central show, Reno 911, was dumb without ever even seeing it. Recently I gave it a shot simply because there was a marathon on TV and I was bored. I was cracking up. Basically in the movie, they get called to Miami for a convention and a bioterrorist quarantine gets put into place on the normal police force so the Reno guys have to take over their duties. Of course they’re all a bunch of idiots and screw everything up. Lt. Jim Dangle is one of the funniest characters on TV. I’m pretty pumped for the movie now and I have only seen a handful of episodes of the show. The movie is supposed to be jam packed with cameos too which is always fun. This is an opening weekend one for me. Guaranteed.
I have one question…. WHY?!
The Astronaut Farmer – Billy Bob is a farmer. Billy Bob wants to be an astronaut. Billy Bob builds a rocket on his farm to blast himself into outer space. Everyone thinks Billy Bob is crazy. The government thinks Billy Bob might be building a nuke. Billy Bob cracks some jokes. Billy Bob’s family supports his rocket building. Billy Bob doesn’t care what people think. Billy Bob is going to space. Why is this a movie? Billy Bob.
A limited release movie coming out are Gray Matters starring Heather Graham where she thinks she might be a lesbian in love with her brother’s fiancé, played by Bridget Moynahan. They share a nice little makeout scene that’s all over youtube right now.
And also the fan’s selection from last year’s Horror Fest, entitled The Abandoned, is getting a bigger release but still not wide all across the U.S. Its about a house that predicts your death or something like that. Who cares.
So as far as my opinion goes, Reno 911: Miami is the #1 choice for a movie to see this weekend but I think The Number 23 would also be a decent choice. This is all based on not reading any reviews as of yet, just my personal opinion on how the movies look. Billy Bob can go screw!
