American Graffiti came on over the weekend and since I don't have cable I watched whatever movies they showed that day. At first I thought it was American Me confusing the titles but when I saw the opening credits I knew I wrong. The film is about a group of teens who have recently graduated out on the town before they go off to college. This was a cute movie. I enjoyed seeing Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard in their younger faces. Cindy Williams was also in it who I was a fan of on Laverne and Shirley. Def. worth the watch for an oldie.
This is one of those films that I think if I describe it, I may ruin some surprises for you. I will try though. The story tells you that a terrorist has planted bombs and in order for the govt to get the location of the bombs they must agree to his terms. The film is mostly the govt trying to convince him to reveal the locations of the bombs. There are great moments in this film. There are moments when I doubt that Samuel L. Jackson was right for his role. Def. an interesting film that will make you cringe and yell "DAMN".
Kick-Ass is out on dvd now. I watched it maybe a week ago. The story goes a nerdy kid wants to become a superhero, so he buys a suit and begins to fight crime. He becomes an overnight celebrity and get's caught in a plot by two other superheroes (Nick Cage and Hit Girl) to take down the biggest drug lord in the city. I'm so good at this synopsis thing, haha. Anyways, it was fun and exciting. The fight scenes are great and of course it inspires you to want to be a superhero yourself. I didn't think it was awesome like so many of my comrades but it is a pretty good film.

Who watched this movie on BET recently? I swear this made me look at Blair Underwood in a whole new light. My grandma doesn't like him ever since he did Tyler Perry's Family Reunion. In this film he plays a man torn up by a loss and begins harassing his best friend's wife. It's one of those nutty dramatic dramas. I wouldn't put it on your must see list but if you are a fan of Blair you may enjoy seeing him in a role that isn't the just the sexy man.
