My Writings. My Thoughts.

What are you going to see this weekend a Re-Boot of Spider Man, Katy Perry or some Savages?

It’s gonna be one HOT weekend! Are you guys ready for this weekends box office releases? Spiderman already spewed his web on us on the 3rd of July and the movies keep trickling in terms of releases. Katy Perry’s movie…whatever that is about is out already and tomorrow we get to see Benicio Del Toro and Salma Hayek do it up in Oliver Stone’s SAVAGES. Remember folks, I give you my two cents on what to watch ultimately you’re gonna see whatever the hell you want!

I’m feeling “SAVAGES” I know Oliver Stone can make some long freaking movies but you gotta love ‘em. I know I do.

The tag line via IMDB.com had me at “Pot Growers”

Pot growers Ben and Chon face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend. Yeah, you read right. These two dudes apparently couldn’t find another toto to hang out with…so se va a formar una pelea! At least I hope. Check out the Trailer for SAVAGES.

Then there is the Katy Perry documentary I don’t know how I feel about that one. Word around town is that this project was executed EXACTLY like the Justin Bieber one. Don’t get me wrong people I like Katy Perry I think she’s charming, talented and very easy on the eyes. Do we really need to see a self-promotion movie that is part concert part fake-a-mentary? You be the judge.

Peep the Trailer: Katy Perry Part of Me.

Already out in theaters is the Re-boot of Spider Man. I think Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are a great catch for the movie. I again, don’t know how I feel about seeing the origins of Spider Man again!

Why look for Studio deals? When even Sci-Fi Legends are Kickstarting it!
