Weekend Movie Discussion: Don Jon, Metallica, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, Baggage Claim

"You know what the world needs? A Metallica IMAX film." ~Me, 5 years ago.

Dang it, I was being sarcastic. And why did they have to drag Dane DaHaan into their web? It's not that I have anything against Metallica, just that I don't feel there was really a need for some flimsy plotted film. Sounds silly to me. Also I have things against Metallica. Okay, not against them exactly. It's these flashbacks. Horrible, horrible flashbacks. Pat Boone... Heavy metal... No Pat, don't cover Metallica... Aghhhhh, make it stop!

Did you know Ned Beatty was still alive? Apparently he is and he's hiding out as the only white person in Baggage Claim. That's right Adam Brody, you've got too much soul to be white. Yeah, I'm not sure what that means either. The film sounds like a pretty terrible romcom, not really much more to it. If you're accustomed to getting dragged to those sorts of movies, Godspeed. 

For those of us who are single men, the masculine movie event of the year is finally here. Hold on to your hat Joseph Gordon-Levitt cause this weekend is all about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2! The first one was silly with some genuine laughs. I expect nothing short of awesomeness out of the sequel. It's been a solid year so far for animated films, I'm pretty sure this puts the cherry on top.

Oh yeah, and there's the Joseph Gordon-Levitt written/directed/starring fest that is Don Jon. I'm willing to give it a shot because it's JGL, but it looks like painful comedy. And likely to be the date film of choice for those not interested in Baggage Claim (Ned Beatty for example).

Oh yeah, and then this happened:

Guess That Movie

Last Time: Alex Correctly guessed that it was Heart and Souls, a truly classic Robert Downey Jr. film, that was all about the supporting cast.

This Week:

What are your plans for the weekend? Going to find yourself a husband before your sister's wedding? Exercising extreme portion control? Going to rock your face off? Pondering how many jelly beans could fit in that big jar in your cupboard? 


  1. You got me on the photo today.
    The Metallica movie is actually getting good reviews. Not that I'm going to see it.
    Might catch Cloudy (my wife loved the first one) but not sure.

  2. You were right Tim! This movie rocked the box-office!

  3. How about Cloudy with a Chance of Metallica?
    None of these sound like anything I want to pay for. Meatballs 2 maybe...
