It’s been way too long since I’ve added anything to this blog – and you’d think with the last few things I’ve added to the site – and with the big movie that opened today – I would be blogging about Man of Steel.
Except I didn’t go see Man of Steel tonight.
Believe me, I had every intention to. I got a friend to go with me and everything. The only thing was, the friend wasn’t SO excited to see it as I was. He also wanted to take his son, and we were going too late.
Then yesterday, the boss of my boss (both of whom are leaving where within a couple weeks) said (as we were drinking and saying goodbye to my direct boss) – “We should all go see Man of Steel around noon on Monday instead of having a meeting.”
So instead of making that my second time for Man of Steel – we decided to go see “This Is The End” Instead.
And I couldn’t have enjoyed it more.
You’re all aware of this movie by now. A bunch of actors, playing themselves, go through the end of days together.
Before the movie, we saw a trailer for “Grown Ups 2.” Seeing that trailer and then watching this movie – just made me appreciate this movie even more.
It wasn’t made for broad audiences of all ages. This movie was a fresh premise that – to me – was all about “how can we make this as funny as possible.”
And they did it.
I thought I had energy, but as I type I find myself fading, so I’m not gonna go on much more. Just a couple more things.
1. Michael Cera was on screen for less than 5 minutes – and he stole the show for each moment he was in. (and Danny McBride was hilarious too – hell everybody was)
2. If you like these actors – and like to laugh – you have to see this movie.
That is all.
Superman, I will see you on Monday.
