Who are these "Mystery Men?"

They are a group of people trying to save the world, when the super heroes we count on aren’t there. These people are a fork-wielding hero known as the Blue Raja, The Bowler, who throws a bowling ball with her dead father’s skull in it, a “gas specialist,” known as the Spleen, an enraged man known as Mr. Furious, The Shoveler, who does damage with hit shovel, and the Invisible Kid.

They are out to save the world, after Cassanova, and his Disco Boys killed Captain Amazing. Nobody believes that they could do it, but they prove them wrong. With a little hard work, and learning how to use their weapons correctly, they become the ultimate fighting team.

Yes, you know that they are going to prevail in the end, but it’s like you want everything to be easy for them, even though you know it won’t be. I have to say that after seeing this movie for the first time in 10 years, I enjoyed it. It made me laugh in some spots, but this made me wonder why I didn’t like it in the first place.

On a scale of 1-10, I’ll give it an 8 ½ stars!

Super Hero Movies

Super hero movies are pretty cool, if you think about it. I know everyone love the Spiderman, Superman, Ironman, Incredible Hulk movies. I agree they are good, but one movie that I will give a review of, when I am done watching it is Mystery Men. For those of you who don't know, that stars Ben Stiller, Janeane Garafalo, William H. Macy, Kel Mitchell (Keenan and Kel Fame), Paul Rubens (Pee-wee Herman Fame), and many more. I honestly think that think that is is better than a lot of other super hero movies, because, to me it allows us to see the uprising of smaller unknown heroes.
People may look at me like I am crazy, but I think this is true. It has been about 10 years since I've seen Mystery Men, ehich came out during my junior year of High school (which would make me old by some peoples standards). I will finish watching it and let everyone know what I think, and wether or not there should be a sequel, even though it is 10 years later.
Sure, people are saying I am crazy for saying that, but guess what, I don't care.

over & out

Remakes.

I hate it when I have conversations about remakes. People who I know and work with will tell me "Oh this movie is good!" They get mad at me when I tell them "Oh I saw this movie when it was.." Why because I am telling you that you have no idea what you mean.
An example of this when I was talking to one girl about I Am Legend. She told me it was a good movie and that I should go and see it. I told her I did see when it was first released as the Last Man on Earth Starring Vincent Price. I also told her that I also told her I saw it the second time when it was released as the Omega Man, starring Charlton Heston.
She gets mad at me and tells me that I'm being a jerk, and I was like why? Is it because I told you don't listen to the film student!!

Random post

Right now there aren't too many good movies out there. What I mean is, there are horrible movies, which were funny when I saw them when I was twelve, for example this new movie with Seth Rogen. You know, this one were he is a mall cop. The fat guy already did that was from King of Queens. This movie was similar to something I saw when I was twelve. Here’s an example it’s not a great one, but Liar, Liar starring Jim Carrey. Same movie, different jobs same outcome. A guy, who hates his job, makes fun of it and the possibility of things working out in the end.

I bring this up because it happens, and when I tell people, “Oh, I saw this movie when it was….” They get mad at me. For example, this one girl I work with tells me I am Legend was a good movie, I told her “it was better the first time I saw it as The Last Man on Earth.” She then gets mad at me and I tell her “it also better the second time when I saw it as the remake Omega Man.” She gets mad at me even more. I know it’s annoying that I do this, but I am trying to educate people on film and movies a bit, before they say some jackass-y movie is good.

Another example of a movie that is supposed to be good is Watchmen, nope, no way, no how, saw this a long time ago when it was called Masters of the Universe. Sorry folks, but as a film major, I can tell simply by the commercials that something is good, and Watchmen wasn’t. For me sitting through a bad movie like this one, which I didn’t, The Breakup, or Deconstructing Harry is like getting kicked in the no-no parts over and over.

One other thing on this, I hate people tell me oh some movie is going to be good, I tell them it’s not, they don’t listen, go out see it and waste there money. The best this is afterwards they come back and tell me it’s my fault they saw a bad movie. Bullshit! Pardon my French; you have a mind of your own to either see the movie, or listen to a guy who knows movies.
