New Release Tuesday:  Kick-Ass

Kick-Ass (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack + Digital Copy)

Why we chose this movie: Well there are 2 reasons.  First, it's new release Tuesday, and we wanted to review a new release.  Second, the only other major new release this week is Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  And well, we couldn't bring ourselves to do it.  Plus, we really like comic book movies.

Beeps:  I thought this was pretty good.  It features my new favorite character from any movie, ever.  I will give fair warning, it is pretty violent, but I didn't feel that the violence was excessive, it was necessary to bring the point of the movie home.  This had a great action/comedy feel to it, there were multiple scenes where I laughed out loud, but mostly because I'm a sick-o, and not because they were particularly hysterical.  My biggest problem with this movie is that it carries on for far too long, the story is engrossing, but it does drag at times.  This is most definitely worthy of a rental, and even a purchase if you're a fan of crime fighting/superhero movies.  3 1/2 stars.

Apes: This movie really does have something for everyone. There is action, comedy, superheroes, violence, and romance. I mean what more is there in life? This movie isn't your average superhero movie, but it isn't your normal spoof movie either. Its a horrifying, amusing mixture of everything. I'd say its definitely worth a watch. The language is pretty dirty especially Beeps favorite character! The movie can get a little long winded at times, but stick it out its worth the wait. I give it 4 stars.

Overall we give it 4 stars.

PS... I thought it looked like it had a little bit of an open end... They announced the sequel coming out in 2012... LOL

eAfter much deliberation we have decided that a movie EVERY day is overkill with the busy lives we lead! We will continue to bring you New Release Tuesday and blog about ALL our movie selections. We are shooting for 5 a week. You may get 4 you may get 7 it just depends on how much time we have!

Thanks for understanding!

P.S. I may add TV shows to the rotation, because if Beeps doesn't let me find out what happens in Dexter I'm gonna go Dexter on him! Plus I have Tru Blood, Pawn Stars, and Bullshit! Then there is my secret obsession ... NCIS!  ~ Love Apes!

Kill Bill - Volume Two

Our Pick:  Kill Bill - Volume Two

Kill Bill - Volume Two

Why We Picked This Film:  We took a day between them, but we hate leaving stories unfinished, so here we are with the 2nd volume.

Beeps:  Originally, I saw these in the theater, but I have not seen them since.  My initial reaction back then was that the first volume was far superior, and that the second volume was far to much dialogue and not enough meat and potatoes so to speak.  I think that I was wrong, I enjoyed this a bit more than I did the first volume, and there was less dialogue than I remember.  It does tend to get a bit long winded at times, but that's to be expected.  So as I said, I think this volume to be superior to the first.  Albeit, not enough to warrant an additional 1/2 star from me.  3 stars.

Apes: I liked this volume a lot better than volume one. There may have been less "action" but there were also less art school effects, bad music, and oddly cut scenes. As a plus there are also a few scenes in this one where they make Uma Thurman look pretty... that is a huge plus. I enjoyed the closure that this film provides and how nicely the story is wrapped up and I suppose it ends the only way it can. However, I think this is one of the few films I'd have prefered to make up my own ending. Overall not bad 3 stars.

Overall we give this film 3 stars.
