Made Of Honor – Review

By movie reviews, Uncategorized

I went to see Made Of Honor the other night. The plot of this movie is pretty simple.

Tom (Patrick Dempsey) and Hannah (Michelle Monaghan) became best friends in college. Almost ten years later, after becoming absolutely inseparable, the two part ways when Hannah goes to Scotland for a six week period.

While she’s gone, Tom realizes how much she means to him and wants to tell her when she gets home. However, he’s horrified to find out she’s met a man on her trip and plans on marrying him. She subsequently asks him to be her maid of honor in the wedding. The plot unfolds around Tom’s plans to convince Hannah he’s the more worthy man.

This was a lighthearted comedy that was filled with smart humor and a great storyline. The character development is somewhat stagnant, but this was overall a great film.

We Own The Night – Review

By Uncategorized

I went to the Byrd Theater last night to see We Own The Night. It was an interesting, yet somewhat confusing, look at the 1980s inner-city drug scene. Joseph Grusinsky (played by Mark Wahlberg) heads up a new narcotics unit to reduce drug flow throughout the city. The main man they’re after is Vadim Nezhinski (played by Alex Veadov). The movie follows their mob-like ways and profile their importation of drugs in creative but shiesty ways. This movie has two or three points where you think it’s going to end, but it keeps on going. It would be just as good a movie without keeping it going. It’s somewhat of a grim movie with lots of killing, but overall the police prevail in taking down the drug operation.

Dan In Real Life – Review

By Uncategorized

I went to see “Dan In Real Life” last night with Tori. I’ve never seen anything bad with Steve Carell in it, movies and television alike.¬†This movie was no exception. I thought maybe it would be sort of a chick flick, but it actually had a great story line and had a lot to say about the way life is. Steve Carell showed a whole new side to his acting talent in this movie. In The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Evan Almighty, and NBC’s The Office, he’s in a more comedic role. That’s not to say that this movie wasn’t funny, but it had a more serious undertone than his other roles.
