My Weekend Movie Review

Friday night I had a date with my husband. He picked the movie...Clash Of The Titans. After it was over, I nervously asked him what he thought of it and braced myself for "it was AWESOME!". He said it was pretty cheesy and lame, that he probably liked the Harry Hamlin version better, and he could have done without the crappy, imitation sleestacks and Lord Voldemort.

Agreed. Thumbs down. I'm sorry I doubted you, honey.

To make up for the crappy movie, we watched Roll Bounce. I heart Roll Bounce. What's not to love about a movie revolving around the late 70s roller disco craze? Throw in Chi McBride as the lovable, suburban dad and lots of jokes about yo momma, paper routes, What's Happenin', polyester, afros, and coming home when the streelights come on.



Thumbs up!

It made me long for my white roller skates with the Strawberry Shortcake emblem and the days when RollerSkateLand and Aquarius RollArena were open. I look forward to a day when I can use the jokes I heard in that movie in my every day life.

"Don't tell me you didn't hear me...with them big 'ol ears, you probably heard the sun come up this morning."

Rollllll Bounce. Allllll Skate.

I've heard such mixed things about Clash of the Titans. I didn't really want to see it until one of my other friends just raved ON and ON about it. But now, after reading this, I'm back to not wanting to see it. What to do...

Karen, I'd save your money (movie prices just went up!) and rent Roll Bounce instead. But if you MUST ogle Sam Worthington in a Greek skirt, I won't judge you.

Sad that Clash of the Titans wasn't better. I didn't realize Chi McBride was in Roll Bounce. I love that guy. Emerson Cod 4Evah!!
