David and I were feeling pretty anti-social last night so we decided to shun all others for the quiet company of one another … once that got old after about a glass of wine and 2 re-runs of Sex and the City, we decided to try and salvage some of our Friday night by going to the movies. We decided to see Kick-Ass:
Kick-Ass was a pretty fun movie … a bit violent but it’s to be expected (what was not expected was that the bulk of the film’s violence came from 13-year-old actress Chloë Grace Moretz who plays the “real-life” superhero Hit Girl in the film). The movie envisions what it would be like if people tried to be superheros in real life and the hilarity that ensues. David and I really enjoyed the film but it is not something that you would take your kids to see. But if you’re in the market for an over-the-top and kinda violent action flick, then you should check it out. I have to say that I really hate the McLovin‘ kid (actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and he features heavily in this movie. His lispy, dickhead demeanor was really off-putting to me. He tends to play the same douche-like character in all of his films so, yeah, he was a turn-off for me … but the movie was enjoyable despite his inclusion. I was really impressed with Nicolas Cage who was both funny and believable as the superhero Big Daddy. His Adam West/Batman like quality was really fun. David and I both liked this film but, again, it’s a bit violent and silly so it may not appeal to everyone.
Today … we clean. Our place has gotten way messy so we need to do some serious cleaning today. I’m hoping to see the Banksy movie Exit Through the Gift Shop this afternoon so I’ll try to squeeze that in after I get my shizz straight here at home. Tomorrow … we’re thinkin’ about going to the LA Dodgers v. San Francisco Giants baseball game so it looks like it’ll be a pretty fun weekend around here. Happy Weekend to YOU!
