Jon Favreau who Directed, Produced and Stared in the movies was a chef, and he genuinely loves his work. Dustin Hoffman is his boss and own a classic restaurants and doesn’t want change. He want the same food and Favreau want to change it up to a new menu. Oliver Platt (awesome actor) is a food critic who rips his up, not because it’s bad food it’s just the same old food.

That starts conflict amongst them and leads into Favreau leaving and ends up in Miami and his ex-wife’s ex-husbands, Robert Downey Jr. Downey gives him the truck and they fix it up and head back to L.A. His son, through social media, announces where they are going to be and the food and truck become an instant success.

That is the very basics of the movie. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to someone else. Watch it and tell me what you think!

Duck Soup – Movie Review

duck soupThe Marx Brothers, 1933 film, featuring Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo. It had everything you’d expect out of a Marx Brothers movie! Great one liners and wise cracks that was pushing the border back in 1933.

The movie had some great sets and props for the time period. Margaret Dumont was excellent in the movie. (My opinion one of her best) Run time is just more than 1 hour long so instead of watching some re-run of a sitcom, put on Duck Soup and enjoy some classic one liners!

Your Highness

71519_galVery funny movie, but not for kids. LOL  Danny McBride, James Franco, and  Natalie Portman star in the comedy-adventure. It’s one of those movies that I’ve seen many better than but I’ve seen many worse movies. It had me at the begging though when it opened with Danny McBride being hung by a bunch of “short people”. (see I didn’t call them midgets) It may not have been the movie of the year but it was definitively worth a Tuesday guys movie. I’ll give it 3 out of 5 thumbs up. It’s worth watching if for nothing else, Natalie Portman… smokin’ ass HOT!

Did I mention Natalie Portman…?

The Hobbit

The-HobbitWe saw the movie “The Hobbit” tonight. It was no “Return of the King” but I guess it’s not suppose to be, it’s the Hobbit. It was a little slow in places and some of the CGI could have been done a little better, but it was a must see. I would recommend it to anyone as well. As a prequel the “Lord of the Rings” it does an excellent job in keeping in Harmony with the trilogy.  I see where it has become a trilogy as well. It was the smallest book, and the book went pretty fast but it’s NOT about the money.

I heard several people complain about Peter Jackson stretching it out so much. He did but he added to the story beyond J.R.R. Token. If he was to make three movie and keep me entertained for 3 hours at a time, God Bless him and the entire production company. I give it two thumbs up!

Hobo With a Shotgun

Rutger Hauer stars as the nameless hobo who drifts into town via freight train only to find the place littered with crime, prostitution and violence. So of course, Hobo just wants to go about his own business, but the town’s horrific predicament is too much for our hobo hero to ignore.  So, along with his trusty shotgun, he takes it upon himself to rid the streets of its trash, blasting one scumbag at a time.

The is one of the most bizarre movies you’ll ever watch. You’ll here foul language, blood, bizarre killings, not much nudity though. It’s 1 1/2 hours of HOBO KICKASS! When it’s over you will find yourself saying… WTF?
