To be fair, I was never truly into Spider-Man. I’ve only seen the first two Toby Maguire movies, which were fine, I guess, but nothing mind-blowing. They mostly made me wonder why Peter looked way older than a high school kid. And the trailers for the Andrew Garfield ones just never drew me in.
I’d heard a lot of good things about Chef, but didn’t get around to seeing it until today. I’m glad I watched it! It’s the ultimate feel-good movie about following your dreams and pursuing your passion. A lot of great actors in there as well.
After going back to his home town to attend his mother’s funeral, Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr.), suave defence lawyer, knocks heads with his distant and headstrong father. As he gets ready to leave, his father is shaken up by the news that he’s a murder suspect. Hank stays to support his father and brothers during the trial. And learn more about his father, the judge.
Ever since Iron man 1, I’ve been in love with Tony Stark and his stories. Though Iron man 2 was – for me at least – a bit of a disappointment, after seeing The Avengers I just knew Iron man 3 would be awesome. And it didn’t disappoint. (Mind that I haven’t read the comics and therefore can’t comment on a certain plot twist some Marvel fans seem to hate).
I’m not a big fan of horror movies – and I really wouldn’t want to categorize Gothika as such, because I didn’t pee my pants during any part of the movie – so when I saw the movie being classified as such, I didn’t want to see it. But Gothika isn’t really a horror movie. It’s more like a thriller ghost story.
Another great movie with great performances from Val Kilmer, Robert Downey Jr. and Michelle Monaghan. Now if you’ve ever read my blog posts about movies with Robert Downey Jr. before, you’ll know I love the guy to death. (Not like how I like Jensen Ackles as an actor, but close enough.) Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is about Harry (RDJ), a petty thief stumbling into an acting audition, who gets himself into trouble alongside a gay private eye (Perry) and his high school crush (Harmony).
I wasn’t really expecting much from Due Date, but I decided to give it a chance because Robert Downey Jr. was in it. I was in for a surprise. The movie is hilarious! It’s about an architect (Downey Jr.) who is on his way home to his pregnant wife, who is expected to give birth by the end of the week.
