Letters to Juliet with Amanda Seyfried

Now-a-days the only way to live the Romero and Juliet fairytale (excluding their tragic death) is through reading novels and watching movies. In these modern times young adolescents only care about the recreational relationship where intimacy is on par with pleasure. Letters to Juliet directed by Gary Winick (13 going on 30 and Bride Wars) was a great romance movie depicting an elderly woman who realizes it is never too late to find her Romero.

Sophie Hall (Amanda Seyfried) (Mean Girls, Chloe, Dear John) being a fact checker for The New Yorker magazine aspires to become a writer, yet her boss does not share the same wishes for her. Meanwhile Sophie’s fiancé, Victor (Gael Garcia Bernal) is working on opening an Italian restaurant in New York, and to celebrate the young couple embarks on a trip to Verona, Italy. Victor being busy with his restaurant preparations finds no time for his lovely fiancé so Miss Sophie decides to make the best of and goes sightseeing.

She comes across the house of Juliet and witnesses in amazement as numerous people write letters to Juliet and posts them on Juliet’s wall. These people in hope write to seek Juliet’s advice; Sophie within this wall discovers a letter from 1957, written by Claire, an English woman who, while in Italy studying art, fell in love with Lorenzo Bartolini. When he asked her to run away with him, she did not show up and resorted to Juliet’s wall.  Sophie kind heartedly responds to the letter.

Immediately a young English man arrives, Charlie (Chris Egan), revealing that because Sophie responded to his grandmother’s letter, she was now there in search of her love. When Sophie asks to meet Claire, Charlie says no, but Sophie follows him and is introduced to Claire (Vanessa Redgrave) who is acceptingly meets Juliet.

The three get together and embark on a journey set to find Claire’s true love: Lorenzo Bartolinis. Through the journey several feelings develop among Sophie and Charlie. Together, the three decide to embark on a journey to find all the Lorenzo Bartolinis. The unrequited love of Sophie, Charlie, and Claire unravel in this masterpiece. Watch “Letters to Juliet” trailer on Streaming Flix.

Jennifer Aniston in Wanderlust!


Jennifer Aniston is, unquestionably, one of the most breathtakingly beautiful Hollywood A-listers around, and at age 41, she’s still hard competition for the newer generation of starlets.  Her classic girl-next-door look and smokin’ hot bod drive men, all over the place, unquestionably insane, and now they’ll have even more to drool over when Jen stars in Judd Apatow’s latest film, Wanderlust.
In her sexiest piece to date, Aniston’s character and her spouse, played by Paul Rudd, decide to take a walk on the wild side and, briefly, live as hippies.  This calls for Jennifer smoking a blunt or two, participating in an passionate threesome with two other women, exercising her right to “free love” while sleeping around with a slew of men and, most shockingly, showing off two of her best assets while going topless on camera.
Wanderlust is, reportedly, only the tip of the risqué iceberg, as Jen transitions from her rank as queen of the romantic comedy (she’s recently starred in The Switch, The Bounty Hunter, Love Happens, and He’s Just Not That into You, all of which have resulted in less than outstanding numbers at the box office) to more sexual characters that deeper delve into raw sexuality.
Perhaps this career switch will elevate box office sales and  let Jen’s adoring public to see her (and we do mean ALL of her) in a different light.  Which is better: girl next door or sexy temptress?  You decide. Nonetheless I will continue to stream my favorite movies, rent my favorite movies, and buy my Jennifer Aniston flicks from StreamingFlix.com.

Who Brought ‘The Other Guys’?

I don’t know about you, but I was tired of seeing Inception at #1 at the box office for this long. Now, don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love Inception. It’s been the best movie I’ve seen in a long time, for so many different reasons. However… it’s becoming a bit of an eyesore. But, what movie could possibly topple the blockbuster king? Despicable MeSaltDinner for Schmucks…? Or, wait… The Other Guys? I know what you’re thinking (or, at least, this is what I was thinking): “Who brought The Other Guys?”

I have to admit, the previews for The Other Guys were less than impressive. While I am a devoted Will Ferrell aficionado,  even I have enough sense to know when a movie looks like it’s going to be bad. Despite a star-studded cast of Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, and Eva Mendes, the movie looked “safe”. Plain vanilla. Nothing special, just Hollywood’s next cheesy cop movie about a crime-fighting duo that doesn’t get along. Ok, so The Other Guys is still a cheesy cop movie about a crime-fighting duo that doesn’t get along… but, it’s actually funny. Even Rottentomatoes.com gave it a 77% rating. That’s gotta mean something, right?

Let’s break this movie down, shall we? Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are indeed “the other guys”. They play a mismatched cop duo, Ferrell is a detective with the demeanor of an accountant and Wahlberg is a seasoned tough guy detective who is held to the office due to an accidental shooting. While their personalities are constantly clashing, they both look up to and aspire to be like the cop powerhouse duo consisting of Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. At this point, it seems all the actors are playing characters that they usually play, so they aren’t too much out of their element. Boring. If I wanted to see Samuel L. Jackson kick butt, I would rent Snakes on a Plane. However, they all tweak their characters just a bit to make it fit for the movie. It’s brilliant if you ask me.

Oh, and the whole cop movie cliche? Yes, it makes fun of it all. So, it’s more of a parody of the cop movies we’re all so sick of. It pokes fun at all the cop cliches we see, like the bitter veteran cop who has anger management issues and a knack for throwing coffee at people, to how the bad guys (despite their massive amounts of heavy artillery) can never seem to hit the good guys. While The Other Guys is a comedy, the action scenes are actually pretty good. The directors staged each scene in an elaborate manner, yet incorporating funny elements into it.

But don’t let me ruin this movie for you. I say you should take your hard-earned cash, throw it at the theater attendant, and (in your best Will Ferrell voice) demand your ticket. Maybe you’ll get in for free. Or if you get kicked out, you can always go to Streaming Flix and watch something else. Just ’cause you can.

Streaming Flix Movie Review: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

I love Nicholas Cage (Knowing). I love Jay Baruchel (Knocked Up). I love director Jerry Bruckheimer (Black Hawk Down). But most importantly, I love Disney. So, when I find out that all these elements that I love are going to be combined in a movie, how do I react? Like an overzealous school girl who has just been asked to Prom by a hot upperclassmen! But, and this a BIG “but”, it was not what I expected. It had its good points and bad points, but overall… it was just okay. Oh, the lingering feeling of disappointment.

Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? The Sorcerer’s Apprentice follows the story of David Sutler (Baruchel), just an ordinary guy with ordinary looks and, apparently, huge confidence issues. His world is turned upside down when  ragged, hobo-looking wizard sorcerer Balthazar (Cage) recruits him to be his apprentice. Balthazar must teach David the sorcery ways and unlock his potential, in order to prepare him for one of their dangerous adversaries yet.

Initially, I thought the storyline and dialogue would be a little too cheesy for my taste (sorry, Disney) and that the special effects would wow and stun me. In actuality, I felt the special effects were overdone and played out. It felt like Bruckheimer didn’t know what quite to do at certain points in the film, and just threw in some cheesy special effects in hopes that the audience wouldn’t catch on.

In terms of the characters, Nicholas Cage played Balthazar perfectly. He was witty, interesting, and believable despite the preposterous tones in the movie. His eccentricity was beautifully played, and it kept me entertained. Baruchel was funny as your average Joe, but lacked depth besides that. I think this may be contributed to him being typecast as Hollywood’s new nerd, but regardless, his performance seemed a little hollow for my taste. The villain Horvath (Alfred Molina) was absolute genius. He wasn’t too cheesy as villains in Disney movies can be. While he is obviously the villain, his dare-I-say charming personality almost makes you WANT him to succeed in his schemes. Ok, maybe not want, but you hope he gets close.

The acting talent in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice kept it afloat, but the entire movie did not sit well with me. It seemed a little disorganized and chaotic, but this may be contributed to my prior expectations (which were of Titanic proportions). Despite my disappointment, I still recommend this film to moviegoers everywhere. Maybe you’ll like it more than I did.
