New Tarantino Movie: Django Unchained

12 Jun

Lots of big guys in this movie. It looks like Christoph Waltz, who was great in Inglorious Bastards, another flick by Quintin Tarantino, plays the patient bad guy again. Also starring is Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tarantino is making the movie. Some people may find this to be a great team while others think they are overrated. I don’t need to name movies from any of these guys, they’ve proven they can make an amazing movie. However, can Quintin Tarantino make an old western movie? We all know he loves to throw in 70’s music into all of his movies but will it fit with this one? Also, some think his movies are too long. Even if you think Tarantino is a tiny bit overrated, out of the 10 or so movies he’s directed, I’d say 8 of them are quite good and unique in style. Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill series, and Basterds were all quite good. Leo is good too, but he also only performs in movies that have a Continue reading

And the Oscar goes to…J Edgar

20 Sep

The full trailer to J Edgar was released yesterday, and…wow.  Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, and Armie Hammer (the Winklevoss twins from The Social Network), J Edgar obviously tells the life story of the man behind the FBI, J Edgar Hoover.  This movie looks to be Warner Bros’ clear attempt at a Best Picture contender, and from the looks of the movie it has a shot.   The trailer aside, DiCaprio truly makes only great movies at this point, and is currently on par with Tom Hanks 90’s run of Philadelphia/ForrestGump/Apollo 13/Saving Private Ryan/Green Mile.  Eastwood is pretty much the same, with seemingly a best picture candidate every year.  Check out the trailer.

“In Time” Looks Awesome

11 Aug

I still can’t figure out if Justin Timberlake is actually a full movie star, but I’m willing to admit he’s gone the full patented Leonardo DiCaprio route of douche bag who all guys hate into a guy who actually seems pretty cool.  Ask any guy about DiCaprio right after Titanic?  Across the board hatred.  Now? A great actor who makes consistently good movies and bangs supermodels.  Timberlake has gone a similar route going from N Sync band member, to making a couple good solo albums, to making the hilarious Dick in a Box, and now starring in a string of movies. His next one, In Time, has a great premise, where everyone is given an amount of “time” at birth, with the wealthiest people accumulating an absurd amount and living forever.  This probably has a 50% chance of being terrible, but who doesn’t like futuristic movies?  I’ll literally watch anything set in the future. I’m pretty sure I was the only person in the country who actually liked A.I., for example. Either way, this also stars the ridiculously hot Olivia Wilde and Amanda Seyfried (looking completely different and really good actually.  I’ve never thought she was that hot but she looks good here), so it will be worth seeing for that reason alone.

Faceoff of the Week: Bar Refaeli vs. Blake Lively

20 May

Through time, one of the age-old questions that has plagued men has been what to do about women.  A caveman in his youth (we’ll call him BamBam here) enjoyed the pleasures of many women in the village, getting to sample a little of each before finding their lifelong mate.  As BamBam settled into his life of monogamy, at first it went great, as they enjoyed the many pleasures of a long-term relationship.  But over time his mind began to wander.  Why couldn’t he still sample around a little if he wanted?  What was the harm?  As everyone knows, this single thought by young BamBam eventually caused the obliteration of man and the first great ice age. But the new generation is once again plagued by this problem.  One man, Leonardo DiCaprio, seems to have it all figured out.  DiCaprio has sampled some of the best in the world for years, being photographed arm in arm with dozens of supermodels on his yacht (sounds like a normal Tuesday to me). But he’s also enjoyed all of the pleasures of monogamy as well, with girls like Emma Miller, Giselle Bundchen, and most recently, Bar Refaeli.  It’s this last relationship that we’ll center in on now, as DiCaprio has seemingly conquered the unsolvable conundrum of having his cake, but ALSO EATING IT.  I know it seems difficult to wrap your head around, but he’s done the unthinkable.  He’s dated Bar (a top five hottest girl in the world) for years, but on an “on and off” basis.  The difference is when it’s “on”, they are a married couple for years at a time, travelling the world and enjoying the life of monogamy.  When they are “off”, however, DiCaprio doesn’t waste time.  After a couple months of cruising around banging supermodels, Leo and Bar calmly reunite and continue dating like nothing happened.  Continue reading
