The House trailer review


Quickest synopsis ever. Watch this shit.

Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler have a daughter, daughter wants to go to college. College is expensive.
Will- “Let’s do a casino in our basement.”
Amy- “Genious!”

In all reality this movie looks hilarious. A lot better than anything Will Ferrell has done in years and hopefully will bounce Amy Poehler back from Sisters. Jason Mantzoukas is in this as their friend that helps them make a casino, and I look forward to anything he is in… All in all this movie looks really cheesy from the trailer, but, I have never seen these to powerhouse comedy actors together and I think it will be killer!

Sisters movie review

I love these two actors. Probably two of the best female leads out there right now, and absolutely hilarious. Sisters is a simple premise… Two sisters find out their childhood home is getting sold so they throw one last party. There is a little more to this movie, not much, but a little. The party they throw is for the people they went to high school with who are now 41+ and they go buck-wild. Amy Poehler is way over bearing and nice. Tina Fey is a mom, not a good one, and can’t hold down a job… I think that’s it on little details that might matter… Anyway, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have amazing chemistry in this. In case you didn’t know, these two are besties/bff’s/sistas from anotha mista in real life, so it’s no wonder they are amazing together! They play off each other so well. One thing I find amazing is that both of these actors played a very large personality character on TV for a lot of years, yet can fall into another role almost seamlessly… I’m not going to spoil too much but a few other cool things… John Cena is in this, and he is hilarious. Sink holes are a much bigger threat in this than in real life.Ike Barinholtz and Amy Poehlers relationship is fucking awesome every time it is on screen… In the end I’m not saying this is a deep movie, or realistic, or anything like that. I’m saying it made me laugh quite a bit, and that is all I wanted out of it.

Inside Out movie review


I am not one to get emotional at movies, ever, but this brought tears to my eyes multiple times. Inside Out follows an 11 year old girl Riley, as she moves across country and the problems that stem from that. More accurately, this follows the inside of Riley’s head. Inside out features the emotions of Joy, Fear, Anger, Sadness, and Disgust, all of which are BRILLIANTLY voice acted with Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Louis Black, Phyllis Smith, and Mindy Kaling respectively. I am SO happy this movie came out now rather than when I was a child. Being an adult you watch this movie in an entirely different light than a child would. You understand the concepts of depression, the jokes about train of thought, the “fading” memories, the song that gets stuck in your head, the putting down of the foot, your personality traits, and so many more! While I am on the subject, Inside out has one of the most amazing metaphors for depression I have ever seen. I feel as if I have not said enough, but this is usually the part where I say something bad. I have nothing bad to say! This is a beautiful, sad, heart-warming, brilliant movie. It perfectly explains everything in your head, and is hilarious along the way. It is a must-see.
