Bad Grandpa was funny, I really enjoyed the movie.
The reason the movie worked is that they incorporated a story but it is was more about the natural reactions of real people. The characters seemed natural as much as the audience of the gags. I was also pleased to find out that it wasn't as gratuitous as I thought it was going to be. Don't get me wrong there were definitely scenes in the movie that kids should not ever see, but it wasn't a total shock fest like Hangover 2.
I definitely recommend this movie. It is very light and moves a long at a good pace. The great thing is that it looks like Johnie really had to work to get the shocking reaction he wanted. It seemed like a lot of people were doing the right thing.

I am pretty excited because I concocted an awesome drink at the bar yesterday. My wife was indecisive as usual and said I want a drink that is not to strong and creamy. Most people are going to order a White Russian. Not me. I went up to the bar and looked over the selection. I saw the Rum Chata and I knew Rum Chata is a little too sweet for her taste. Then it hit me mix it with Franglico.
City C - One part Frangelico one part Rum Chata on the rocks.
The drink tastes a lot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and the name is an ode to one of my favorite breakfast cereals. I started with the initials and thought that was too easy so I made it City C.
Try it let me know what you think and by the way she loved it.

I don't think anything in this episode was mind blowing. The show still managed to fly by. A lot of action and the two significant events are that the disease action plan goes into effect and everyone is not in agreement on the execution of the plan. Apparently, someone thinks turning and burning is the way to go.
I think feeding the zombies is going to turn out to be a bigger deal than the episode let on. It seems like the kids are the likely culprits but what are they doing sneaking out at night. They live in a world where the zombie apocalypse is going on. I think that probably makes it a little harder to sneak out at night.
It is strange that it is someone in the prison but who would still be loyal to The Governor. I think that is the trick and I am going with the Medic Bob for now. I guess will find out or if he starts to get face some internal struggle like he had in escaping the booze in the first episode of season four.

Wow, Kershaw just got pulled and I could tell he had some tears swelling up in his eyes. The Cardinals had taken the Dodgers to the wood house in this game but I am not going to count my eggs before they hatch. There are still four innings of play to go. I am hoping we get a couple more here in the 5th.
They just showed Kershaw in the dugout and he is staying there to watch the game. I give credit to the man he is in a real tough situation. That being said I am happy as hell my team is winning. GO CARDS!!!

My favorite show has started again and I noticed a little foreshadowing. In the very begin of the episode Rick is doing a bit of farming and walks by a barrel taking a big sip water. At the end of the episode Harry Potter turns in the shower. Even though a lot happened in between I am drawing a connection between the two events.

I really wanted to like this movie but unfortunately it sucked. I like poker a lot and that was barely an element of the movie. I could have gotten over that.
There was supposed to be all this smart out thinking the other person going on but it just seemed stupid. The villain of the movie didn't even seem that bad. I don't think anyone was ever killed. All the evil deeds in this movie just involve almost killing people.
The suspense was missing, the thrill was missing. There was nothing about this movie that gets the audience invested. Save your money or go see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

The movie is funny go see it, preferably in a theatre that serves alcohol.
The movie gets setup very quickly, I had heard a few complaints that it was slow to get going. I personally did not find this true. I thought it moved quickly from the party setup to the comedy horror portion. I will say the movie wasn't scary at all, but it wasn't meant to be. This is definitely a comedy.
What to expect at a high level. The comedy is not as dry as Sean of the Dead. A lot of the jokes are a lot more slap stick. Some people may say there were some political under tones but at the end of the day the movie comes out neutral. Who cries politics on this movie is just an asshole. I will say it taps into philosophy but more as a spoof on other sci-fi movies most notably "The Day the Earth Stood Still".
There isn't a lot of character development but it wasn't needed. The character types are so classic that everything is understood. I guess that is the nice thing about a spoof and this obviously a movie that your not going to sit there an analyze.
Well go out and have some fun with this one.
