The Lonely Island – Spring Break Anthem (Between Two Ferns Version)

I love the guys from Lonely Island, they make funny music videos and the music is catchy. The introduction of Zack Galifianakis and James Franco is hilarious, I love that Galifianakis is trying to be offensive but he just comes off as weird, a perfect intro to the funny music videos. Added this to my playlist.

Review: The Bournce Legacy

An expansion of the universe from Robert Ludlum’s novels, centered on a new hero whose stakes have been triggered by the events of the previous three films.

Edward Norton is one of my favorite actors and I thought having him onboard would be perfect to play opposite Bourne. Jeremy Renner played an interesting Bourne and I was looking forward to seeing how he would play it out since he was pretty good in the Avengers as Hawkeye. The movie is filled with action but I was expecting the story to have some sort of ridiculous plot that we would figure out later, to lead to some discovery. But half way through the movie I was getting distracted, it just didn’t keep my attention, and the ending was one long ridiculous action scene which was pretty pointless, and when the movie ended I thought “Really? Thats It? Nothing Else?” I was a bit disappointed and with this Bourne movie, I wanted it to be a lot better. The action was fun but it couldn’t cover for the lack of a coherent story, if I wanted senseless action I would have watched Expendables 2 again.

Stone – Trailer

A convicted arsonist (Edward Norton) asks his beautiful wife (Milla Jovovich) to help manipulate the man who holds the keys to his parole (Robert DeNiro).

If Edward Norton is a movie then I’m watching it, but the surprise is the role Milla Jovovich is playing. I like the story line of this movie and the type of characters they each play, I’m used to Jovovich as the ass kicking Alice from Resident Evil but this is a different character for her and it suits her. And Norton as usual wants to screw with people’s heads, and I like De Niro’s character being messed around by both of them.

Review: Pride and Glory

A saga centered on a multi-generational family of New York City Police officers. The family’s moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney, investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law. For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora’s Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.

I’m a huge fan of Edward Norton, and I also like Colin Farrel movies. Norton knows how to bring out the character and always choose these complex stories with difficult characters to portray. This time its no different, he is a burnt out cop from a family of cops and he has to dig into a murder investigation where four cops were killed. What he might find at the end of the investigation might rip his family apart. The storyline is simple yet it keeps you hooked, you keep wondering what he is going to find out and when. If you like cop movies then this is the choice.

Review: The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk has always been an interesting comic from Marvel, a good guy with uncontrollable power who always causes collateral damage while trying to do the right thing. I enjoyed the first movie they made even though it was a bit slow, but it follow the comic book theme down to the letter. In this case it was a little different, you come into the movie from the get go, and the disaster has already occurred. Edward Norton plays the Bruce Banner, and plays him excellently, then there is Liv Tyler who plays Dr Elizabeth Ross, Bruces’ very good looking girlfriend, at least in this movie. The action is nonstop and you really enjoy the movie, the movie is in pretty good condition in Kuwait there were a few cut scenes but it was always intimate scenes so it didn’t take away from the movie too much.
