Movie Mania!

I feel like I am on a movie watching spree!  I have gone to 3 movies this week!  I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Dinner for Schmucks, and Step Up 3D.

For whatever reason, I seem to really enjoy movies based off of comic books.  This was no exception.  I freaking love Michael Cera.  I know he always plays the same role, but so what?  Don't we typecast tons of actors and actresses?  He is completely adorable and plays his role so well.  I also really enjoyed the girl who played Ramona, she was great!  The plot was great, the movie was a ton of fun, and I would highly recommend it if you're at all nerdy and want to be amused.

I had heard terrible reviews about Dinner for Schmucks, but the previews looked funny and I love Paul Rudd, so I found a friend to see it with me.  After reading the terrible reviews, I was worried that they had shown all of the funny parts in the trailer.  I was so happy to be wrong!  The movie had a ton more funny parts.  It was incredibly silly and the humor was beyond ridiculous, but it was so much fun!  I walked out of the theater glad I had gone.

I had also not heard great things about Step Up 3D, but it had a lot of the dancers from So You Think You Can Dance so I wanted to see it.  The dance sequences were beyond amazing.  Every dancer in that movie was more talented than I could comprehend (although there were a few dance doubles).  The plot was not great by any means, but it was alright.  If you're into dance, watch this movie.  Otherwise, feel free to take a pass on this one.

Whew, I'm exhausted just from blogging about all of the movies I've seen.  Have any of you seen a good movie recently?  Any recommendations?

I totally agree with you about Dinner for Schmucks! I had been excited to see it until I read the reviews and then when I saw it Steve Carell, Jemaine Clement and Zach Galafanakis were so hilarious.

I must admit, I went into Scott Pilgrim with low expectations but I was pleasantly surprised. It was awesome! Glad you liked it, too.
