#Biutiful - Review by @mikethemovieguy


This is what I call a REAL movie. If you plan on seeing this one…be ready…it’s 2 ½ hours long…bring snacks! (LOL) Great cast…great acting…great story. It’s showing in selected theaters so like I said before – if you’re looking for a great movie…check out BIUTIFUL. It’s the same director who brought you 21 GRAMS and BABEL…it’s one of those movies that has multiple stories…then it all comes together at the end. Niceeeeee!

Definitely worth checking out.

I give BIUTIFUL…4 out of 5 POPCORNS!

#GnomeoandJuliet - Review by @mikethemovieguy (#movies #trailers)


Gnomeo and Juliet hit theaters a few Friday’s ago…I know, I know… “Mike, your late!” I’ve been slammed with stuff…sooo be quiet. (LOL) Well, if you’re looking for a hilarious, funny ass, family movie – check out GNOMEO AND JULIET. The story’s pretty simple…2 families…Red gnomes and Blue gnomes…they live next to each other…and well…they hate each other. (Like William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet)

Yeahhh…ya get it?! (LOL)

Well, Gnomeo (Blue gnome) ends up meeting Juliet (Red gnome)…they fall in love…and all hell breaks loose! Here’s another family flick to see…or fellas…maybe a date movie. Yes…I said it.

I give GNOMEO AND JULIET…4 out of 5 POPCORNS!


#TheEagle - Review by @mikethemovieguy (#movies #videos)


This was a good movie. I was impressed with Channing Tatum…as soon as I saw the trailer…I was like, “This looks tight and with Billy Elliot in it (some of ya’ll will get it)...if I watch this…I should be a happy camper” But somewhere in my mind I was thinking, “Will Channing pull it off?”…and he did.

THE EAGLE is about a story…of the 9th Legion...men go out into the wilderness…men never come back. The 9th Legion had a leader…this leader’s son grows up (Channing Tatum) joins the military and decides to follow in his footsteps. But you need to know something – since there’s no trace of the 9th Legion…the prized Golden Eagle is lost as well…which symbolizes ROME. See…Channing Tatum’s character pretty much has this black cloud over his head...sucks to be him in the beginning of the movie. Well, while he’s leading his first command – they are attacked and he’s seriously injured…what does that mean? He’s forced to retire. I think days, maybe even months go by…and he hears of a rumor…that the Golden Eagle has been scene…he tries to get the Roman empire to help but their like, “Hell nawwww…we ain’t sending our army out there!” So he decides that he and his slave will do it…and they start on their adventure.

THE EAGLE is a dope flick…worth checking out…even if it’s PG13…yes, I said it. PG13. There some dope fight scenes and the acting is spot on.

I give THE EAGLE…3 out of 5 POPCORNS!

#VanishingOn7thStreet - Review by @mikethemovieguy (#movies #reviews)


My movie finally came to VOD…I had been waiting for this one for the longest
For the longest time…I had been waiting for this one. I saw the trailer…I thought to myself, “Mike…good cast…this looks good.” Then I saw that it was coming to theaters AND…VOD. Well, it’s cheaper to see movies at home…so I ordered it and I must say…the movie WAS pretty good.

Check out the featurette…


It’s pretty simple…guy wakes up and see that 98% of the human population is gone…and the ones that aren’t…when night comes… “something” get them. VANISHING ON 7TH STREET is pretty cool…looking for a cool thriller flick…you should check this one out.

I give VANISHING OF 7TH STREET…3 out of 5 POPCORNS!

#HallPass - Movie Review by @mikethemovieguy (#reviews)



Ok people…I had the chance to check out HALL PASS on Thursday and I gotta tell you…it’s exactly what I expected. A few HUGE laughs mixed with some funny stuff…you do laugh throughout the movie.

HALL PASS is about two guys…where in high school…they got the ladies…but NOW…much older…married with kids…things aren’t exactly the same. (LOL) Some couple stuff happens and their wives decide to give them a “Hall Pass”…one week, no rules…to do whatever they want...MARRIAGE IS OUT THE WINDOW. So, you can pretty much tell what happens next…they get into trouble…if you decide to check it out…BE READY. (LOL)

Owen Wilson, Christina Applegate, Jason Sudeikis, and Jenna Fischer star in this movie and they all click. Not at I have to bad flick people. BUT, I do have to say something…



JOKER AND JUSTIN…you can’t compare this to THE HANGOVER…not even close!! (LOL) Don’t mess with THE HANGOVER!

I give HALL PASS…3 out of 5 POPCORNS!

"Hot Teachers for Valentines Day" @Phillyd Monday News! (#video)

HALL PASS coming to theaters on 2/25/2011 (#movies)


Best buddies Rick and Fred (Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis) have both been married for a long time. They love their wives, but, like some guys, just can’t help checking out every other woman who crosses their paths.

Fed up with this habitual rubber-necking, their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalize their marriages by granting their husbands a “hall pass”: one week of freedom to do whatever they want, no questions asked. Seven days to see exactly what it is out there they think they’re missing…or stop looking once and for all.

At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But they quickly discover that their expectations of the single life—and themselves—are completely and hilariously out of sync with reality.

Lego Blacks Ops...it's just AWESOME! (#videos #legos)

This has to be one of the coolest videos!

Check out all the cool stuff! Gnomeo and Juliet comes to theaters! (#movies #GnomeoandJuliet)

Gnomeo and Juliet is around the corner movie fans! I haven't had the chance to see it yet...but I will Wednesday and from what I've heard...it's hella funny! Check out the info below - some cool stuff for the kiddos!


The greatest love story ever told, starring...garden gnomes? In the upcoming “Gnomeo & Juliet,” Shakespeare's revered tale gets a comical, off-the-wall makeover. Directed by Kelly Asbury (“Shrek 2”) and showcasing both classic and original songs by Elton John, the film features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet, who have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with plastic pink flamingos and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find a happy ending?


Yes,  MAKE YOUR OWN GNOME!

#Cyrus - Movie Review by @mikethemovieguy (#movies)


This movie was hilarious…a little dark…but hilarious. It takes a minute to get started…but when it does…it’s a nice little ride. John C. Reilly is awesome…Marisa Tomei is awesome’er and HOT…and Jonah Hill is Jonah Hill.

CYRUS is a dark comedy about a mom and son relationship…love is definitely there…but in a weird way. (LOL) Along comes John (John C. Reilly) who’s down in love…he meets Molly (Marisa) and everything seems to click…BUT, there’s one problem…CYRUS (Jonah) who’s NOT having it.

It’s funny people…the battle for mom’s affection is ON. CYRUS has a great cast and is definitely worth watching. I know, I know…you didn’t hear much at the theater about it but WHO CARES.

RENT IT!

She made my day!

#KnightandDay - Movie Review by @mikethemovieguy (#reviews)


I watched KNIGHT & DAY the other night on Netflix. Yeah, I know…finally watching this one…but the truth is…I’m just not a huge fan of Cameron Diaz. Tom Cruise, yes. Cameron, nope.

The movie’s pretty much about a super spy guy played by Tom Cruise…who’s accused of going rouge. While he’s running from other hit men, the government and other crazy people. He runs into Cameron Diaz at the airport…she basically becomes a witness with everything and is forced to stick by his side.

Now people…it did start off pretty good…action was there…but then…somewhere in the middle…it got cheesy. I thought the story got dumb and the special effects were a little “too” unbelievable. It had potential…but then lost it. BOOOOOO!

I give KNIGHT & DAY…2 out of 5 POPCORNS!

#TheVirginityHit - Movie Review by @mikethemovieguy (#reviews)


Yep, THE VIRGINITY HIT is on DVD baby! I had already seen it in theaters, but I wanted my gal to see it. Not going to lie…when it hit stores…I went out looking for it…I hit Super Target (which ended NOT being so super) and Wal-Mart…couldn’t find the damn thing! Sooo, I turned to Netflix…and yep…it got sent to my house…felt like Christmas. (LOL)

Well, I still feel the same about the movie – I thought it was hilarious. My gal…not so funny. If you wanna see a dope comedy…check it out. Once I find it – I’ll be adding it to my DVD collection. Best Buy here I come!!

Here's my vlog I did after seeing the screening...

#BadBiology - #Netflix movie review by @mikethemovieguy


Now this was a crazzzzzzyyy flick. (LOL) Trust me…2 minutes into and you’re like, “WTF?!” Ok, let me tell you about it…it’s about this girl…who you could has a large sexual appetite…every time she has sex…within 2 hours…she goes into labor and has a crazy looking fetus thing (Yeah, I know – nuts)…that all she does…I think she’s looking for that ultimate sexual experience…maybe that “true love.” Well, while that’s happening in the movie…you get introduced to this guy. Now, he’s got some issues…a crazy penis with a mind of his own. Yes, I said PENIS…let’s put it this way…John Holmes ain’t got nothing on him! (LOL)

I know…your probably saying out loud, “Mike, WTF did you watch?!” Something called BAD BIOLOGY. It’s a crazy movie and if your into crazy, off the wall, bloody flicks…this one might be up your alley. (LOL)
See for yourself…check out the trailer below!



Well, what do think? I have to admit though…there some cuties in the movie. Look people…just make some popcorn and watch it with your loved one!

I give BAD BIOLOGY…3 ½ out of 5 POPCORNS! (LOL)

#StepUp3D - #Netflix movie review by @mikethemovieguy


Ok Ok, yes…I rented STEP UP 3 in 3D…trust me…it wasn’t for the story, I’ll tell ya that much! (LOL) Now, when it came out in the theaters…I thought about checking out, but I just didn’t like how they promoted it…shoving it down your throats…the trailer was everywhere! (LOL) Soooo…the day finally came. Did I like it? Like I said…not the story…the dancing was hella dope. I’m a fan of “So You Think You Can dance”, so it was cool seeing some of the peeps in the movie.

STEP UP 3 is about a group of dancers in NYU…a new kid comes along showing talent so the main guy decides to recruit him his their crew. The crew is having to compete in this huge competition…if they win, the prize money will help save their lease. Sound familiar? AND of course there’s an “evil” crew battling it out as well…AND of course there’s some couple love stuff as well. Pretty predictable I’d say. BUT one thing that’s not…is the dancing. What these guys and gals do is nuts!! I gotta give a HIGH 5 on that! If you’re a fan of “So You Think You Can Dance” and can look past the cheesey-ness…you’ll like this one.

I give STEP UP 3…3 out of 5 POPCORNS!
