Movies

I haven’t blogged in a very long time, but times have changed so here it goes…

I now work at a small town movie theater and have been there almost a year. Doing so has given me the opportunity to watch the new movies for free. I try to watch as many as possible, so that I can answer customers questions about the movies we are showing.

   Here are a few movies you definitely want to see. *Warning: Mild Spoiler alert*

Capitan America:

   In this movie based in the Second World War Era, a scrawny underdog with lots of heart and no muscle manages to enlist in the army. He is selected for a secret military experiment, and becomes “Capitan America”. He is treated as a figure-head and must team up with a few other brave souls to stop the plans of a mad man. I normally don’t watch comic book movies (i.e Iron Man, The Green Lantern, Thor…), but i felt that this one had a very good story line, as well as plenty of suspense, romance, and action. Both men and women would thoroughly enjoy this movie.

Cowboys and Aliens:

   When a man wakes up in the middle of the desert in the wild, wild west, he has no idea who he is, where he is, or why the heck there is a strange metal bracelet wrapped around his wrist. While trying to rediscover his past, he must team up with a rag-tag group of people to stop aliens from talking over their world. I am neither a Western movie maniac nor a Sci-fi fanatic. I did however enjoy the blending of the two genres. It gave the poor Indians a break. ;p and was not too far-fetched or corny. Had some very serious moments, as well as some adult humor. Depending on how you react to movies, this one will most likely make you laugh, cry, and/or cheer.

The Help

   This movie is about a young white writer during the Civil Rights Era. She decides to interview black female servants about what its like to wait on white women and families for a living. While stirring up scandals and setting her white community on its ear, she learns lessons about true friendship and the hardships of being a black maid in a white world. I was upset that my movie theater decided not to show this movie. After a summer of mostly guy movies and horror flicks, the women of my town are starving for a feel good movie. Management claimed it would not sell well, but they were wrong. It’s been the top box office earner since its been out, and it surpassed movies such as Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Spy Kids 4, Conan the Barbarian, and Fright Night. I think it’s worth seeing. The Help isn’t some corny chick flick, it is a good movie for anyone who is interested. If you liked The Secret Life of Bees or Fried Green Tomatoes, you will enjoy this movie.

I hope you enjoyed my little reviews or at least consider seeing these movies. Thanks 🙂
