I usually don’t like gross out comedies, but I really liked the first Harold and Kumar – thought it had a little smartness to it, and it had a great turn from Doogie Howser himself, Neil Patrick Harris (you think How I Met Your Mother’s Barney is bad – wait until you see him playing himself).
Anyway – Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay is in theaters April 25.
I don’t know how long this feature is for the world. It’s easy, but I’m realizing I just don’t like movies. The following trailer, is just a teaser trailer, but it’s of note because it’s about Tropic Thunder – a comedy starring Ben Stiller. You might have heard about this movie because it stars Robert Downey Jr. – playing a black man (actually he plays a white actor who plays a black actor). He’s in the middle in the picture to the left – better than C. Thomas Howell.
Thanks to my friend Melissa who sent this to me. It’s a documentary about the closing of small-businesses as big-box stores take over and what that does to the community. It’s not at the theater – you have to order a DVD – but it seems like an interesting watch. The DVD is $16.95 and is available at the movie’s site.
No further evidence on what the writer’s strike has wrought than the fact that Dan Cortez has a job on network TV. The next time the writer’s are thinking of striking, someone should remind them of that.
As for you – you should go to the theater rent a DVD. I should take my own advice. Anyway, the Raider’s of the Lost Ark movies were a highlight of my childhood. I saw the first one 3 or 4 times over the course one summer. That was back when a movie was in the theaters for longer than week or two. So here’s the trailer for the upcoming Indiana Jones movie. The idea of Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones in his sixties is funny, but the trailer is amusing.
Today is the start of a new feature – Trailer Park Tuesday, where I will post a trailer of note. The first has been out there for awhile, but what better way to start than to honor the late Heath Ledger.
