The Sunset Limited Movie Review

The Sunset Limited is one of those movies that really makes you think about stuff like good versus evil, belief and non-belief, black and white.

The entire movie revolves around a very interesting and deeply philosophical discussion between Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones.

Jones is a nonbeliever, Jackson is a very devout Christian. Both men bring up very valid points as to why they choose to believe in certain things and question other things that pertain to the human condition.

If you like movies that make you think you’ll enjoy The Sunset Limited.

I give it 8.5 out of 10 tamales! ūüėé

Fired Up Movie Review

Stars:
Nicholas D’Agosto (Shawn Colfax)
Eric Christian Olsen (Nick Brady)
Sarah Roemer (Carly)

Fired Up is a somewhat unique take on the stereotypical cheerleading movie.

Shawn Colfax and Nick Brady, high school seniors, decide not to waste their last summer by spending it at football camp. Instead, they agree to join the cheerleading squad and spend three weeks at cheer camp surrounded by over 300 beautiful cheerleaders.

They actually end up hooking up with a lot of ’em and having a good time until one of them, Shawn, falls for the gorgeous head cheerleader, Carly, who’s suspicious of their motives. The players are then forced to change their game in order to prove Shawn’s intentions before the thrilling cheer competition finals.

There are a lot of hilarious moments throughout the movie. Most of the jokes are well written with just a hint of realism.

I give Fired Up 7 out of 10 tamales! ūüėé

The Jungle Book Movie Review

I remember when I was a little boy I would run around the neighborhood in my underwear and play with all the stray animals that followed me. Well… I never really did that but after watching The Jungle Book I kind of wish I did. Kind of.

I really had no expectations before seeing this movie, other than hearing a somewhat new rendition of the song The Bare Necessities.

If you have never heard of The Jungle Book before then you must’ve been living under a rock for an insane amount of time.

All the classic characters appear in spiffy CGI form; voiced by an all star cast. The only live person is Mowgli (Neel Sethi).
It was kind of fun figuring out who voiced who without doing a Google search. I got two right.

There’s also some very cool action sequences. The violence is minimal but more than one might expect from a Disney movie.

On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give The Jungle Book 8 tamales! ūüėé
