The movies I’m most interested in for August.
Friday August 6th The Other Guys
Will Farrell and Mark Wahlberg team up in this buddy cop film as detectives Allen Gamble (Farrell) and Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg) who both play by different rules. Allen would rather be a desk jockey and Terry aims to be a badass cop who brings down the bad guys much like the city’s top cops do who are played by Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson. Of course, things don’t go too smoothly when Terry and Gamble are paired together on a new case.
Friday August 13th Scott Pilgrim vs the World
I think it’s pretty clear that we are very much looking forward to this one. This graphic novel turned movie follows the life of Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), a jobless 22 year old who lives with his gay room mate (Kieran Culkin). One night at a party, he spots the girl of his dreams, Romona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and by dreams, I mean he actually saw her in a dream beforehand. On their first date, she informs him that he must defeat her 7 evil ex’s if he wants to date her. The movie is like an 8-bit video game come to life where Scott battles each ex leading up to the big boss played by Jason Schwartzman.

Friday August 13th The Expendables
August 13th is going to be a busy box office night packed with 2 movies that I am looking forward to seeing. The Expendables is one of those movies. With an all star cast of Hollywood’s most badass action heros, this movie already has the makings of a box office hit. Cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, and Arnold Schwarzenegger just to name a few. They all come together as a group of mercenaries to take down an evil South American dictator. Get your large, butter soaked, pop corn and 32 ounce Mountain Dew for this action packed extravaganza.
Friday August 20th Piranha 3D
When first seeing the trailer for this I thought it was going to be “Boobs 3D” due to the abundance of tanned skin and girls jumping around in the first few seconds. Then it takes a drastic change and introduces Piranhas to the mix of boobs and tiny bikinis. So let’s see, boobs, piranhas attacking and 3D. Sounds like a winning combo, yes? At least for the guys out there. This one is for you.Last 5 posts by Alyssa Tucker
