Category Archives: Movie Reviews
I think this is the first Coffee Share I’ve done over here so I’ll explain it.
If you’ll click the coffee cup above you’ll be taken to a place where you can find new blogists (is that a word?) who take part in this weekly thing called weekend coffee share. It’s a place where we can have a little fun and share a bit about our week
It was started by Part-Time Monster a while back and there are plenty of us who do it, some more than others, some less (ahem…me…ahem) but it’s a way to connect, have fun and maybe find something new to read.
If we were having coffee on this HOT, sunny Sunday morning I would let y’all know that I am not impressed with last week’s humidity or what’s supposed to be coming this week, although I am very thankful it broke for yesterday.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I got to meet one of my Facebook friends for the first time last night. She was totally awesome and I’m looking forward to another movie night!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that we went to see Tarzan last night.
I was totally jazzed, mostly because I was meeting someone new but also I was going to the first movie in a long while AND it starred Alexander Skarsgard (sorry for the misspelling, I don’t have the Swedish keyboard setting), Margot Robbie and Samuel L. Jackson.
It seemed like Robbie and Jackson did the acting while Skarsgard provided the comedic relief and the eye candy.
You know those Tarzan reviews out there? The ones talking about his abs and lack of shirt for 2/3 of the movie and the fact his long johns sat way down over his hips? (Can we say ‘V’ boys and girls? A little further south of the border and we might have got what we paid for.) They’re all extremely accurate.
I watch a movie for the entertainment value so when I notice inconsistencies you know that, aside from spending FAR too much time with my boyfriend, it wasn’t a great movie. Unfortunately, it was utterly and achingly forgettable for me.
Funny thing: They tried, tried, to imitate the Tarzan yell. It sounded more like Samuel L. Jackson yelling because he was frustrated because he couldn’t keep up with Tarzan. Or a hippopotamus mating call.
Now, how was your week?
