The Longest Yard (2005)


This is Adam Sandler’s second football movie, the first one being The Waterboy. In this remake of the original movie, that starred Burt Reynolds, Sandler plays a former NLF MVP Quarter back that got banned from the game for shaving points. He ends up going to prison after taking his girlfriends car for a joy-ride and getting chased by the police causing a major accident. Once in prison, the Warden makes Sandler assemble a football team using prison inmates to go up against’s the Warden’s team for a “tune-up” game.

If you’re a big football fan you’ll recognize many of the NFL player cameos as well as cameos from professional wrestling and former SNL stars. The inmates that make up Sandler’s football squad are quirky in their own way, ranging from a no-talent pipsqueak to a giant human juggernaut with a childlike complex. This sports-comedy movie is hilarious and entertaining. I haven’t laugh this good in a while.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆

Mr. 3000


I finally got Netflix. I’ve been spending my money renting movies for awhile now. Sometimes my late fees cost more than the movies I rent. This online rental is much cheaper and more convienent. One of my first movies I got from Netflix is Mr. 3000.

Bernie Mac plays, Stan Ross, an egocentric baseball player who cares nothing but being in the Hall of Fame. He quickly quits baseball once he achieved his career record of 3000 hits which would definately place him in the Hall of Fame. Nine years later after exploiting his 3000 record for personal fame and business, he finds there is a mistake in his stats that he’s three hits shy of 3000. Ross joins his old team to get his three hits but finds his game is not the same as it was nine years ago.

Expect to see Bernie Mac’s fast-wit talking. It’s hilarious. He actually plays a believeable baseball player. Overall, this is a decent comedic baseball movie.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Napoleon Dynamite


After hearing good praises from people, I had to go rent the movie. This low budge movie has horrible acting and dialog. That’s the least of it’s issues.

Napoleon, who seems to be autistic, plays a typical high school loser that befriends a hispanic student, Pedro, that wants to run for class president. The events in the movie seems to wonder off aimlessly, and the characters in the movies are more idiotic than the other.

15 minutes into the movie made me wonder why so many of my friends love this movie and quote it’s lines into every conversation? Then it hits me, they be autistic as well.

Rating: ★★★½☆☆☆☆☆☆

A little feature added

Last night I added a script that display random quotes on the top header of the site. They’re memorable quotes from some of my favorite movies. Can you guess which quote is from which movie?

Losing it…

People these days seem to be self-conscious of their physical appearance most notably their weight. There are new apparatuses being invented every six months and appearing on late night infomercials claiming to do miracles, and it only takes a few minutes of your time. There are diet fads that are so compelling that people actually believe that eating nothing but bacon and steak will actually make them lose those extra pounds.

The mentality of people is, “I’ll do anything to lose weight, as long as it doesn’t require diet and exercise.” When it comes to losing weight there shouldn’t be an easy way out. Forget the miracle pill. It ain’t going to happen. Just do what you’ve been avoiding; diet and exercise right.
