Pirates 4... again

I went to see Pirates 4 again. This time in Disney Digital 3D... instead of the one with the glasses that look like the lenses had gasoline poured on them.

It was better the second time, mostly because I was awake through all of it. But there were a few parts where even I went, "really?" Just things that break the laws of physics... which usually isn't cool in a SEMI-realistic movie.

But anyway, I'm glad I saw it again. Now I want to watch the first one again and see how much better it was.

Pirates, Hangovers, and Pandas... OH MY!

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

To tell you the truth, I was dozing in and out this whole time... It was a midnight release for me. I went with Paul, who is finally back from Hawaii for good.

Pirates 4 was good, but only as good as the second and third pirates movies... so not as good as the first. But, as usual, a must see for a fan of the series.

"Hangover Part II"

This movies was actually really funny. Sometimes sequels just drop the ball, especially for comedies, but they kept the main idea and characters from the first movie so this ended up pretty solid. A for sure, MUST SEE, for anyone who saw the first and wasn't appalled.

"Kung Fu Panda 2"

This one was the best of all the movies I've seen so far this year, or at least my favorite. I just got done seeing this with Gretchen, who also liked it, despite her reaction to the first film which she wasn't impressed with. Different time, different place I guess. But we both liked it.

Angelina Jolie's character "Tigress" had a much larger part in this film than she did in the last. The other Furious Five had much smaller parts, but at least they kept the same voice actors.

From what the paper says, this was the first Full Length Feature Animation Directed by a Female, Jennifer Yuh. She was a Story Artist on the first film and really showed what she can do with this one. Kudos to Jennifer on this film... Wow.

A must see for sure.

My Green Thumb is back

The Garden is back in. And I actually influenced michael to start his own garden as well.

This year we planted beans, peas, jalapenos, super sweet 100 cherry tomatoes, onions (red and white) carrots, corn, cucumbers, watermelon, garlic, broccoli, green peppers (ishy), Lettuce, and Thai peppers.

Gunna be awesome.

TONIGHT gretchen and I just got back from seeing Bridesmaids.

It was really funny, and actually pretty good. I don't know if it's worth the 4/4 stars it got in the newspaper but it was a solid 3/4 for sure.

Other than that, I've just been working... a lot...

THOR (First iPad post)

Saw Thor yesterday and was surprised at how good it actually was. Rotten tomatoes gives it 79% and I completely agree. The story wasn't the strongest and I'm still not quite sure how the love interest even became a love interest but hey, it works. One of the better superhero movies i've seen.

One thing I thought was pretty lame was that he NEVER WORE HIS HELMET!!! One shot in the beginning and then BOOM, helmet is gone. Look at the poster above, no helmet. Do a google search, every image of the comic book Thor includes his helmet... Makes no sense. But other than that, good stuff.
