The Green Light
October 16, 2009 by admncc
Whenever I’m referring to a bad movie, I always say, “I can’t believe a studio gave the green light to make that.”
But in the same breath, don’t get me wrong – I love movies. And when relating them to this blog, I love complaining about bad ones. How many of you can relate? After watching a movie, have you ever said, “That was terrible” or “Can I have the last two hours of my life back?”
So with that being said, I’m going to try a new segment on here related to the movies. I figured it might be entertaining, because in addition to the actual movies, we can discuss the celebrities, plots, sequels or anything having to do with the movies. I’m going to call this segment “The CC Says.”
Although the whole premise of my blog is complaining, I do want to say that I am actually fair when rating movies. So if it looks good, I’ll say so, and vice versa. Frankly, I’ve often been accused of getting too excited about movies. So we’ll see how this segment goes and of course, I’m sure there will be some complaining along the way.
Let me know if you like this segment or not and/or if you’d like to see it continue… I’ll start out with movie trailers, but I’m sure we’ll progress to reviews over time.
My wife and I went to the movies last weekend. Below are the three previews that were shown before our particular movie:
“The Blind Side” starring Sandra Bullock
IMDB says, “A poor, oversized and under-educated teenager is recruited by a major college football program where he is groomed into an athletically and academically successful NFL prospect. Based on Michael Lewis’ book, “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game.””
The CC says, “I like Sandra Bullock. This is a great role for her. The idea of a tear jerking family-oriented story is always appealing to me. Plus, this one comes with a football storyline as well.”
“Did You Hear About the Morgan’s?” starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker
IMDB says, “In New York City, an estranged couple who witness a murder are relocated to small-town Wyoming as part of a witness-protection program.”
The CC says, “I have a hard time watching Sarah Jessica Parker in anything else other than Sex and the City. Hugh Grant always plays an interesting character though. And the plot seems interesting – they’re having marital troubles, they have to go into the witness protection program and then they start to wonder if there’s still a spark with their relationship. I’m not sure, but I might be waiting for Netflix to deliver this one.”
“Paranormal Activity” starring Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat
IMDB says, “After moving into a suburban home, a couple becomes increasingly disturbed by a nightly demonic presence.”
The CC says, “I’ve heard this is supposedly the scariest movie since “The Blair Witch Project.” I also heard that people were having trouble sleeping after seeing this movie. That makes me curious to see it. It opened as a limited-release last week, but then the studio apparently received more than 1,000,000 requests to open it nationwide, so they’re doing so. A must see!”
P.S. All trailers were obtained through YouTube.com. “The Blind Side” was distributed by Warner Bros, “Did You Hear About the Morgans?” was distributed by Columbia Pictures and “Paranormal Activity” was distributed by Paramount.
P.S.S. Happy Bosses Day 2009
