John & Becky’s Movie Review of The Blind Side

blindsideBecky and I took the kids to see the new Sandra Bullock movie The Blind Side last week at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Yahoo website at The Blind Side describes the movie as follows:

“Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, is taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher’s presence in the Touhys’ lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle…”

The Review
The Blind Side is one of the best movies of the year, so it’s no wonder that the “Critics” are giving it a C+. The Critics loved that stupid movie Fantastic Mr. Fox, but something with actual substance, a great story, that is true no less, and that doesn’t have a bunch of political overtones with a token gay actor is something they don’t like. Needless to say, most of the Movie Critics are politically motivated idiots and this movie is great!

In fact, we didn’t find one person who saw this movie so far who didn’t absolutely love it. Everyone coming out of the film really enjoyed it and there are plenty of messages in this movie about giving to others, overcoming stereotypes and prejudice, being real and not giving into the common temptations of the world. The film is based on a true story of a family and it’s really quite amazing with a fantastic ending.

I’m not going to go into detail about the film here, but I’m just going to tell you to make sure you see it and you’ll be glad that you did. It’s rated PG-13 by the way and most of the issues went over our kid’s heads. Bianca didn’t like it that much since it was a bit above her 8 year old mentality, so you might want to stick with kids that are a little older or they will be bored. Corban really liked it though.

The Blind Side is definitely getting a Don’t Miss It from us.

John & Becky’s Movie Review of The Proposal

theproposalBecky and I went to see a sneak preview of the movie The Proposal last week with our friends Rod and Kimberly Tactaquin at the Regal Cinema’s in Lone Tree, CO. The Rotten Tomatoes website at The Proposal describes the movie as follows:

“When high-powered book editor Margaret (SANDRA BULLOCK) faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she’s actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant Andrew (RYAN REYNOLDS), who she’s tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own…”

The Review
The Proposal is a very funny movie about a guy who wants to be a writer and is working for the boss from Hell. It stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds and they have great chemistry together in this film that has plenty of laughs. The Proposal comes out this Friday and it’s a great date night film and a very well done romantic comedy.

Goblin Network AdWe all liked The Proposal and thought it was a really well done movie. Many of the funny parts of the film are situation based rather than just “one liner’s”, but there are a few lines in the movie that are funny as well. Amazingly enough there were not any gay scenes in this movie, which is practically impossible for Hollywood to do anymore when making a comedy. The language was also tolerable for a change as well.

Becky and I both liked this movie and would recommend seeing it at the theater. It was worth the price of admission and Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds do a great job playing these characters. Rod and Kimberly gave it a Worth The Trip as well.

John & Becky’s Movie Review Of 12 Rounds

12roundsposter1Last week Becky and I decided to go see the new movie with John Cena called 12 Rounds, at the Kerasotes theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at 12 Rounds describes the movie as follows.

WWE star John Cena headlines his sophomore action picture as a police officer whose wife is kidnapped in New Orleans. Daniel Kunka provides the script, with Deep Blue Sea’s Renny Harlin handling the directing duties for the 20-million-dollar Fox Atomic/WWE Films production. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide…

The Review The Merry Gentleman movie
12 Rounds stars another professional wrestler turned movie star, John Cena, as an ordinary cop with amazing abilities.  His character finds himself at the wrong place at the wrong time and ends up busting a mass murderer by accident.  In the process of the arrest he accidentally gets the criminal’s girlfriend killed while trying to arrest them both.  It wasn’t really his fault, but the bad guy thinks he was responsible and is out for revenge.

Goblin Network Ad12 Rounds is like a cross between a Bruce Willis Die Hard film and Speed, if you ever saw that one, with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves.  There is plenty of action and excitement as you go on 12 Rounds of mayhem caused by the bad guy sending the cop on wild goose chases around the city to prevent potential disasters from taking place.

The movie has some great plot twists and it’s actually pretty exciting and not a bunch of sex or swearing in the film, just plenty of non-stop action.  We both thought it was pretty entertaining and although we didn’t know the actor from his wrestling career, he pulled off this character really well.

Becky and I both thought 12 Rounds was Worth The Trip and if you don’t get a chance to see it in the theater, be sure and put it on your rental list.  We both like action flicks, so this one lived up to its expectations.
