Insidious: Chapter 2

For my birthday a few days ago my husband took me out on a date night for dinner and Insidious: Chapter 2! We both really enjoyed the first Insidious movie and were stoked that the sequel came out right in time for my birthday! Most cool horror flicks come out in time for my husband’s birthday because he was born the day before Halloween. Lucky bastard …

Anyway, the movie really lived up to my expectations! I thought that while it wasn’t quite as scary as the first installment, it was a really super creepy and well-made follow up. It kept with the story line and even added more to the background – a LOT more! I love a story with an actual STORY and not just non-stop gore. This isn’t a gory movie, it’s more of a psychological thriller a’la The Shining. Yes, I absolutely compared the two because there seemed to be a small homage to The Shining within Insidious 2 – not sure if it was on PURPOSE but … well, when you see it let me know!

Here’s the quick synopsis from Wikipedia:

“Insidious: Chapter 2 is a 2013 American supernatural horror film directed by James Wan. It is a sequel to 2011’s Insidious. The film stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne reprising their roles as Josh and Renai Lambert, a husband and wife who seek to uncover the secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. The film was released on September 13, 2013.”

Don’t bother staying through the credits, there are no extras or stingers.

Ps. Anyone who has young kids or has ever owned some of the Fisher-Price brand electronic toys will be cursing them during and after the movie!

I Have 533 Kids!? Delivery Man Sneaky Peek!

Guys! What would you do if you realized that – 20 years after making a few donations to a fertility clinic – that you’ve fathered over 500 kids? Would you want to know who they were? How about if they wanted to know who YOU were?

Affable underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.

I think he does what any guy would do – stay anonymous and play “guardian angel” to his kids! Okay, that’s maybe not what ANY guy would do – but it’s what David Wozniak does!

Ready for a sneak peek of the trailer?

Delivery Man will hit theaters on November 22, 2013!

Weed, Emma Watson and the End of the World

I love that Emma Watson is getting further and further away from her “Hermione” counterpart WITHOUT turning into your stereotypical “child-star-turned-drug-whore.” That said – grownup Emma, wielding an ax and a super cute haircut, dropping the F-Bomb and robbing several men of liquor – was just ONE of the hysterical moments featured in the new movie “This is the End.”

Thanks to the Aloha Agency, LLC (who doesn’t have a website – but has a Facebook) – I got to bring my husband on a DATE and take him to see a screening of This is the End (which comes out tomorrow!)

This is the End is a full-length movie based on a 2007 short comedy film called Jay and Seth versus the Apocalypse  film written by writer-actors Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and director Jason Stone. The movie follows longtime buddies Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel to a party at James Franco’s house where they (and a host of other celebrities) are faced with the impending apocalypse.

The movie is rated “R” for a reason! Seth and Jay “reconnect” with lots (and lots) of weed and 3D gaming at the start of the movie. Then, at the celebrity party (featuring cameos from Rhianna, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Krumholtz, Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart and many, many more) there is rampant drug use (apparently, Michael Cera is a MAJOR coke-head with a penchant for bathroom sexcapades) as well as booze, general shenanigans and a GIANT art piece shaped like a dong. It’s HILARIOUS for those of us who of legal-age to laugh at this stuff! But, seriously, don’t bring the kids!

I gotta say – this movie was HILARIOUS! Sure it’s ridiculous and stupid – but there’s sort of a message! It’s about friendship, good deeds, facing your fears … and drugs! Yay! I recommend grabbing your honey or a group of friends and seeing This is the End. It’s a crazy, fun ride that provides lots of belly laughs, celebrities falling into a Hellmouth and Channing Tatum in a Gimp suit!

 

All-Star Cast in This is the End

I love movies that fall somewhere between “horror” and “comedy.” The first Scary Movie made me laugh SO HARD and Zombieland is one of my favorite movies of all time (same with Shaun of the Dead!). So, when I saw the trailer for This is the End I was very excited! Talk about an all-star cast! The movie stars James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera and Emma Watson.

The movie follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.

The movie looks HILARIOUS and – thanks to Aloha Agency and Ward 16 Theaters – my husband and I will be seeing this movie on the 10th! Woohoo DATE NIGHT!!

Don’t forget to grab your tickets to go see it when it comes out on June 12th!

Move It, Move It

It’s MONDAY! Yay not! I know I have an entire LIST of stuff to do today – I’m assuming ya’ll do to! Let’s MOVE IT!

Disney’s “Planes” Flying into Theater’s in August #DisneyPlanes

From above the world of “Cars” comes “Disney’s Planes,” an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar. “Disney’s Planes” takes off in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.

The kids and I LOVE both of the Cars movies! So we are super excited about seeing Planes! I’m a bit bummed though because when we lived in Virginia Beach we’d always hit Cinema Cafe (so, SO much easier when you have little ones!!) – but here in Hawaii there is no movie theater like it. So hopefully when we do get to go see Planes my two year old behaves herself and doesn’t climb the walls like a monkey!
