I really wish these two would have been making movies together 25 years ago instead of opening restaurants. Just think of the possibilities of an in their prime Arny and Sly battle royal… I’ll wait while you ponder that…. Take your time.

The Spectacular Now

I watched this trailer and I actually said out loud “Awwwwwwww.” This looks like a very sweet teenagers fall in love movie. It is based on the Tim Tharp novel and adapted by the folks who wrote ‘500 Days of Summer’ (Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber) a film which I really enjoyed. With a budget of less than three million it is far removed from the big budget summer flicks it will be competing against. Like I said of ‘Drinking Buddies’ this will be a welcomed palate cleanser.

The official description for this movie goes a little like this: “Carol Solomon is a struggling vocal coach. Propelled by the hubris of her father, Sam Sotto, the reigning king of movie-trailer voice-over artists, Carol musters the courage to pursue her secret aspiration to be a voice-over star. Her fiery sister, Dani, becomes a trusted confidante, and Carol engages the skills of a charming sound techie named Louis. Armed with renewed confidence, Carol lands her first voice-over gig—a primo spot—nabbing the job from industry bad boy Gustav Warner. And then the real trouble begins. Carol becomes entangled in a web of dysfunction, sexism, unmitigated ego, and pride.”

Here’s the official synopsis: “Luke and Kate are co-workers at a Chicago brewery, where they spend their days drinking and flirting. They’re perfect for each other, except that they’re both in relationships. Luke is in the midst of marriage talks with his girlfriend of six years, Kate is playing it cool with her music producer boyfriend Chris. But you know what makes the line between “friends” and “more than friends” really blurry? Beer.” (more…)

The sun is shining (for once) the birds are singing and I am stuck inside. Go figure on the first nice day in at least a week I have a bajillion things to do to get ready to go away for the next few days; and none of them include outside time! Ah well, such is life. To help me through the indoor malaise I loaded up my player and hit shuffle. Here are the first five for ya!

My Take on ‘Man of Steel’

After watching the movie I took to Twitter and announced “Really don’t know how to feel about @ManofSteelMovie. I will have to think on this.” I spent the evening thinking about the movie and I have come to this conclusion: I still don’t know what to think. So I am just going to start writing about ‘Man of Steel’ and see if I can figure out how I feel about it.

BTW…. There will be spoilers… You have been warned… (more…)

These guys have been putting out consistently good music for the last, what is it now, 5 years… Always topping the charts, playing sold out venues, winning awards and having a good time doing it. I love these guys. They’re group of guys who I wouldn’t mind hanging out with on a Saturday night around a bonfire somewhere. A few drinks, a few laughs, someone pulls out an acoustic guitar and we all join in singing some favorites. That would be a damn fine time.
