I Need a Date for Date Night

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox. All opinions are 100% mine.

You guys know I don’t watch much TV, but I do love a good movie. I am definitely up for seeing Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carell. If this movie is even half as funny as its trailer, it is going to be a riot. Not only that, it is also an action movie. The two genres I love the most welded together in one. It’s got to be good. I can’t wait!

The Date Night Movie opens April 9th, which is Amoeba’s birthday. Since he is not a movie guy I probably won’t get to see it Friday, but Saturday is doable. When I really want to see a movie, I prefer doing so immediately. Waiting for more than a couple of days almost always leads to some jerk spoiling the ending by running their mouth. The movie is a romantic comedy so I know that there is a 99.9% chance that it will end happily-ever-after, but I really don’t want any particulars beyond that.

And, in case you’ve been listening to me jabber on about this movie and still don’t know anything about it, here’s the trailer. Watch it and you’ll know exactly why I have to see this movie:

Yippee! “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel” is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download NOW!! Alvin and his buddies were a big part of my childhood. My babysitter had comic books and record albums featuring Alvin and the Chipmunks and they used to keep me busy for hours. I used to practice talking like a chipmunk, too, but I never quite got it down — until today. With a little electronic help, I just got munked. That’s me below.

L Johnverrell’s REIN: The Rejuvenator

If you’re an urban fantasy fan, the premise of this film will peak your curiosity.  The story line intrigued me.  The fact that the same two men have been battling for centuries put me in mind of the Highlander Series, which I loved.

The premise of the movie is based on the belief in Reincarnation. It tells the story of Rein, the very first rejuvenator. With the help of his two best friends, Rein has been helping souls rejuvenate for over 2000 years. He is tired and ready to pass-on the mantel of rejuvenator. His successor is chosen from the year 1975. Unfortunately, the second Rein is not as easy to train as Rein One thought he would be. Complicating the plot is, Spade, the man who created Rein One by murdering him in the first place, and the lovely Karma, the goddess of reincarnation, who apparently has the hots for Rein Two.

Rein One is considering not rejuvenating Spade this time around, whether he’s a believer or not. And, because Karma’s sexual interest in Rein Two is forbidden, the others are suspicious of Karma’s motives for choosing the man and don’t trust him. Rein Two is aware that the team isn’t wholly in support of him, and that makes him suspicious of them.

All of that provides a wonderful breeding ground for drama, deceptions and tangled intrigues. I couldn’t wait to see Rein: The Rejuvenator.

Unfortunately, a great premise doesn’t necessarily make a great movie. I liked the idea. The cinematography seems fair, but the dialog is wooden and the acting is worse. If this movie premise makes it to Hollywood, gets a real budget and some actors with talent, I’ll put my money down to see it in a flash. As it stands now, not so much.
