Chef – A Movie That Makes You Hungry

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

One Hell Of A Cast:

  • Jon Favreau
  • Sofia Vergara
  • John Leguizamo
  • Scarlett Johansson
  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Dustin Hoffman

You would really have to do pretty badly to screw up a movie with this cast line up, half of them from the Marvel Universe and the other half are great actors. I love any movie with Jon Favreau, one reason is because he is Iron Man’s Body Guard / Driver, and the other reason is he brought Iron Man to life and with that came all the Marvel Movies behind his success. This movie is a different kind of movie for from Jon Favreau and if you want to watch a fun movie with great characters and really good looking food then this is it, I honestly can’t recommend it enough. Its got all the pieces of a great movie with a deep and fun story, and Jon Favreau makes you want to go into the kitchen and do something crazy with the food. And don’t watch the movie hungry, you will end craving everything you see on screen.

Silicon Valley – Nerds Rejoice

The world that is Silicon Valley is put on display for everyone to see the quirks and oddities of this industry through this amazing HBO Comedy. Silicon Valley offers an abundance of highly relevant and insightful thoughts on the state of the Dotcom craze. It’s all packaged within an engaging scenario brimming with sharp humor, endearingly eccentric characters and the chance to come along for the ride while they try to make millions. 

HBO managed to develop all the characters within a short span of 8 episodes that you can’t help but love these guys while they go their trials and tribulations in the most hilarious way. Each character is very different from the next with Richard being the main character and each one playing a role in the Pied Piper company. The funny part being that Hooli in the show is acting like a combination of Google/Yahoo in my opinion. It is a show which the nerdiest nerd will love as well as someone with no technical understanding what so ever, living in the bay area for over 5 years I can’t help but love this show on so many levels. If you haven’t watched it your really missing out.

Kill La Kill – Must See

Plot Summary: Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She’s looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman’s identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special “goku uniform,” and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

A fantastic anime from the creators of Gurren Laggan, with the same spirit and fire that fueled that anime and I especially love the style. You will always be routing for Ryuuki Matoi in the story and this is one of the best developed storylines I have seen in a long time, you can’t help but love all the characters, this is a rare breed of anime. And there is a fantastic twist towards the end that really gets you riled up. The action is nonstop if a lot of fan service nudity, but there is no episode that leaves you disappointed, and full of humor of every kind. If you have any inclination towards anime then this is a must, and if you haven’t seen it then you are really missing out.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

With the 70s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, returns to take New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.

If you even like Will Ferrel you will love this movie, from beginning to end I couldn’t stop laughing, I can never get enough of Will Ferrel movies but this one had the perfect cast to support him and make this one hell of a movie. Ron Burgendy shined in Anchorman 2, I thought Anchorman was hilarious that it couldn’t be funnier, but they topped it off with this one. I loved the character played by Steve Carrel, he perfected it, I could feel a bit of Michael Scott from the Office coming through with him in that suit. The best part is the insanely ridiculous battle scene at the end, just the amount of famous people who were in it was enough, you could tell that people joined in because they were enjoying themselves making this movie, if you haven’t seen it then watch it.

Review: Kevin Hart – Let Me Explain

LetMeExplain1

Filmed at a sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden, comedian Kevin Hart delivers material from his 2012 “Let Me Explain” concert tour.

LetMeExplain2

I’m a huge fan of Kevin Hart, the guy has a fantastic sense of humor and knows how to be funny on all levels, if he is doing stand up or acting in a tv show or movie, he is great. This show cases one of his best stand up shows I have seen, he is hilarious and bit after bit you keep laughing. You also get to see what happened with these guys on the tour bus across Europe and different places around the world. If you want to laugh then you have to watch Kevin Hart.

Review: We’re The Millers

WERETHEMILLERS1

A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

WERETHEMILLERS2

We’re the Millers is one of those comedies that surpasses your expectations, in my opinion the comedy of the summer. And proves again that Jennifer Aniston is still hot, at this age and she looks ridiculously hot. Jason Sudeikis is hilarious in a lot of comedies but this one he is over the top, a fack family to bring drugs across the border is a pretty unique storyline which has a lot of laughs in store. I can’t recommend it enough if you haven’t seen it, your going to love it.
