GENRE: Comedy

Movies Enchanted Movie Shot

We just got back from seeing Disney‘s latest movie, Enchanted. It’s quite an achievement. It’s original, boasts a couple of Oscar-worthy songs and appeals to a wide audience. The beginning of the movie offers up a fantastic animated sequence that’s narrated by the ever-talented Julie Andrews. This early part of the story sets the tone for […]

Movies Dan in Real Life Movie Shot

Next up we caught Steve Carell‘s new movie, Dan and the Real G….. Oh, wait, it’s called Dan in Real Life. This is a movie I’ve been worried about for some time. We saw the previews for it ages ago and then the movie seemed to miss one release date after another. I also happened to […]

Movies Lars and the Real Girl Movie Shot

Next up for me was Lars and the Real Girl and it was a great surprise. It’s a dark comedy that really is more drama that it is comedy. Ryan Gosling is exceptional as its title character. Anyone who’s unsure about his acting chops needs to look no farther than his portrayal of Lars. You’ll feel every […]

Movies The Darjeeling Limited Movie Shot

This week’s movie is The Darjeeling Limited staring Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman. It’s an extremely low-key, dark comedy that will not go over well with many, though I enjoyed it quite a bit. The comedy is very similar to what you find in director Wes Anderson‘s other movie (that I feel is a […]

Movies Superbad Movie Shot

Another Friday, another movie. This time we checked out Superbad, the new Judd Apatow comedy. It still amazes me that this guy has so many awesome hit movies and failed so notably (and surprisingly) with TV shows. It makes no sense. The great part for me is that I confused this movie as being the […]

Movies Ratatouille Movie Shot

The next movie on the slate is the new Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille. I had seen nothing but wonderful reviews for this movie and due to this I also expected that I’d be disappointed. I find that when everyone loves a movie, I am left disappointed so now I go into such movies with skepticism. This entry […]

Movies Evan Almighty Movie Shot

On Sunday we got together for my mother-in-law’s birthday and as part of the day we saw Evan Almighty together. Evan Almighty is a decent movie. It’s getting hammered in the reviews and I can see why but it’s not terrible. I think after movies like Knocked Up and 40 Year-Old Virgin people just expect something else here. This was […]

Movies Surf's Up Movie Shot

A teenage penguin looking to break into the pro surfing circuit is the focus of a documentary in the shallow pools of Surf’s Up. This is the story of Cody Maverick (voiced by Shia LaBeouf), a young rockhopper penguin trying to become the next big surfing star of Antarctica. The event of the season is […]

Movies Shrek the Third Movie Shot

I can’t even recall large swaths of Shrek the Third and I just saw it Friday night. It was totally forgettable. I don’t know that much could have been done about it as this story really was about the uniqueness of it all. Once that was gone, there really wasn’t any point. This one felt like […]
