Downloading Illegally

I received a very weird phone call from a customer at the store today.  He wanted to know if we dealt with the pay per view movies , in which I replied we don’t since we do rent movies at our store.  You see , he had been downloading illegally and I called him a […]

Focus

Is it never lose focus ?  or just focus?  I thought it was just focus to be honest till i saw the poster.  Oh well, whatever it is , the movie really isn’t anything about focus unless, it’s to tell thieves to be focus on their skills and targets? As much as I loved Will […]

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

One of the last movies that Robin Williams was in is the Night of the Museum.  I think there won’t be another sequel after this.  Therefore, everyone has to watch this.  For those who’ve watched Night of the Museum before , you won’t be surprised and know what to expect of course, for those who […]

Tusk

What a weird show to say the least but since it was directed by Kevin Smith , I figured we had to watch it and also filmed in Canada , so definitely gotta watch it. I was kinda grossed out by the show to be honest , about a podcaster who came to Manitoba , […]

Annabelle

Must awaited movie by a lot of people , Annabelle turned out to be less scary than I had hope for.  Nevertheless, it was quite good.  Set in the 70s, a young couple who was going to have their own baby , purchased a vintage toy and apparently , the toy had the spirit of […]

Sex Tape

This has got to be one of the most hilarious movie that I’ve seen so far.  It sure kept the spouse awake and since Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel is in it, it has got to be good right?  Now this is an adult only movie , not suitable for young kids even teenagers.  Oh […]

Blended

With Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, how can one miss this movie right?  Destined to be together they were not.  Two ended on a blind date that didn’t turn up well and they thought they would never meet each other again but fate had it otherwise of course.  And instead ended up with a holiday […]

Joe

Nicolas Cage is portrayed as the ex-con who meets a 15 yrs old boy and tries to help him.  Although Nicolas Cage is a grouchy, weird and violent man in this movie, he is not as bad as the 15 yrs old boy’s father who beats him around and tries to pimp his daughter out […]

Monuments Men

The Monuments Men will be on DVD in a few weeks, I just got a preview of it and since it was based on a true story – or history I may add, the spouse was quite interested in watching it. George Clooney, Matt Damon and Bill Murray , all the good actors are in […]

Gravity

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in this movie would make anyone think that this has got to be a great movie but mannn! I was disappointed !  besides showing how she was stuck in limbo and in space, there was very little action to be honest.  So this movie as per my humble opinion is […]

Captain Phillips

Love the movie and Tom Hanks did an absolutely great portray of the real Captain Richard Phillips.  Based on a true account of the hijacking of a cargo ship – the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama.  A group of Somali pirates hijacked the cargo ship and demanded ransom for the captain after their failed attempt to […]

Lone Ranger

A Disney movie and I didn’t expect to see so much gun fire and bloody scenes.  But Johnny Depp being in this movie, it was a pretty hilarious one.  Depp plays Tonto in this movie and he was actually in some sort of a circus museum and was telling a story to a small kid […]

Overloaded Wtih TV Shows

Yes! that’s the reason why I need a bigger store, unfortunately, we still can’t find one to buy yet and the spouse don’t want to move unless we own our next store. They do sell, once they are on the shelves – but shelves space are limited, so you can see why I am thinking […]

The Internship

We watched the Internship today and it was hilarious as hell – with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, how can it not be a good movie right?   But is internship at Google really like that?  I don’t know but I know for sure that Google does feed their staff and they have all sorts of […]
