movie reviews: "now you see me" and "monsters u"
i don't review many movies here as i'm not really qualified as i just don't see many movies. i just wanted to pop in quick to mention these two that i've actually seen in the theaters recently. i suppose i just want to brag that i saw an adult movie out in public. ha!
but seriously. "now you see me" was unexpectedly awesome. i probably never would have seen it if my friend and i weren't committed to going to the movies and this was the only thing remotely interesting playing. the plot just seems a bit odd and not movie worthy. but really it's a thoroughly enjoyable flick from beginning to end. i can't tell you at all why that is because the story relies on you not knowing anything. it's just really a good movie and that is all.
then g and i saw "monsters university" opening weekend. it's a charmer. i left the theater wanting to go home and watch the first one (which is really the second as "mu" is a prequel sequel) right away. there was an older couple sitting a few seats down and i heard them laugh out loud several times. too cute.
so there you go. my token movie reviews for the summer. have you seen anything good lately? especially on dvd. i see most of my movies via redbox these days . . .
