This post is dedicated to a film that, lately, has been really close to my heart… Step Brothers and an actor who undoubtedly is even closer… Will Ferrell. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly work well together in this sometimes raunchy but very funny comedy. There are definitely parts with thick adult humor so it is not for the faint at heart. The irony of two grown men that in the beginning flaunt there immaturity but later on succeed when their parents separate. I would definitely recommend this for someone that does not mind some adult humor and language.
My favorite actor is definitely Will Ferrell with his unique comedy which is paralleled with no one. I love his dry humor and just his overall attitude while playing his roles. I was definitely impressed with this movie as I have not enjoyed some of his recent work too much, such as Talladega Nights or Semi-Pro. Both my mom and I definately laughed our heads off at this one. Good Job Will Ferrell. My favorite movie has to be Anchorman and I’m looking forward to getting that on Blu-ray but I enjoyed Step Brothers and I will admit that it is one movie that I will end up getting on Blu-ray.
I posted information earlier about a great Netflix widget. However I was looking around some more and found another great Netflix widget. This widget is provided through AdaptiveBlue. AdpativeBlue is a great service if you want to add beautiful widgets to your website using RSS feeds from common websites. They provide widgets for services like Amazon, Blockbuster, Epicurious, iTunes, Last.fm, Netflix, New York Times, Rhapsody, Rolling Stone, Snooth, Wallstip, Wine.com, and Yahoo. The great feature is you don’t even have to have an RSS feed; you can show the best selling books off of Amazon or the music you’ve purchased off of iTunes. You can sign up for other features that include keeping track of stats, toolbars that help you see media reviews fast and easy, and also add great information to links about books, movies, music and stocks. Many of their features integrate with common platforms.
So the other day I signed up for Netflix and it’s pretty legit. They have a 2 week trial which you can sign up for but was not the reason I signed up. Most of my energy was placed into typing in my name and waiting for my first movie to arrive. I chose to request Blood Diamond first as I had not seen it yet but I have wanted to for a long time. They mailed it out right away. The best part is that the distribution center is in Santa Ana so I think I received it the same day that they mailed it or at least the next day.
Sweeney Todd was such a great movie and that opinion come from someone that after the first 5 minutes, knew he was going to hate it. That’s right… at first I thought I was really going to dread the movie ass they sailed into port on their ship but then I started enjoying it. I thought it was really good. I understand that the whole idea of slitting people’s necks with razor blades isn’t the best thing in the world but I thought Johnny Depp singing about it was almost comical. I enjoyed it so much that I’m waiting to see if it comes out on Blu-Ray so I can purchase it and watch it on my new TV.
Friends that I talked to mostly liked it except for a couple that didn’t like it at all. I would recommend seeing it and let me know what you think about it. You can leave your opinions on the movie below.
