Aight people. Listen up. I saw this movie trailer, no joke, 100 times. I swear it was last year when they started showing this movie trailer and I was pretty underwhelmed.

The first time I saw the trailer I thought to myself, “eh….Transformers with Hugh Jackman.”

The second time I saw the trailer I thought to myself, “eh…I just saw this trailer.”

The third time I saw the trailer I thought to myself, “eh….looks dumb.”

The fourth time I saw the trailer I thought to myself, “WHAT THE CRAP IS THAT THE GIRL FROM LOST?! I AM THERE!”

The fifth time I saw the trailer I thought to myself, “eh…..looks like Transformers with the chick from Lost.”

The sixth time I saw the trailer I thought to myself, “eh….I think I’ve seen this trailer before.”


The hundredth time I saw this trailer I thought to myself, “Oh…that movie is finally coming out? Aight (That is gangsta talk for alright.)”

So I saw it. First showing. Opening day.

And the verdict is…….it’s pretty darn good.

Hugh Jackman is this boxer dude. Evangeline Lilly(LOST chick) is this boxers dude long-time friend. And then there’s a kid. He’s like 10 years old so he’s probably not been in any other movies so his name is not important.

Boxer dude and LOST chick are fightin all the time cuz they’re good friends.  Boxer dude was a boxer dude until he picked up robot fighting. So pretty much he probably got sick of getting beat up all the time and picked up video gaming. I guess the LOST chick thought he was hot, so maybe I should pick up video gaming.

Then this kid gets thrown in the mix. I won’t ruin how he’s involved but you can probably guess. Anyways, the kid and boxer dude form this bond while fighting with their robot. Then it gets all Rocky(you know…that movie) on us with the inspiring lines, music, and Russian boxers.

Then the plot thickens and it ends.
It was actually a pretty tight(cool kid talk for ‘cool’) movie.  I found myself cheering in the theater, which actually was ok because it was a matinee and their weren’t a lot of people in the theater. There are also some ‘tear-jerker’ moments and you will shed a tear or two, unless you have a heart of steel(hahahaha).

I would recommend this movie cuz right now there aren’t a ton of good movies in the theaters. I would recommend Contagion over this movie, but Real Steel is a more uplifting, inspiring film.

So get the fam, and head to the movies.

You’re welcome.

Yo. Justin here. I asked my apprentice/friend/guest blogger Chad Tanner to write this post on Moneyball. I went and saw this movie with him but thought you guys would wanna hear someone else's opinion this time round. Why not? So be nice. Comment. And follow this blog. Alright me proud! (I took the liberty of downloading a pic of Chad so you guys could all know what he looks like).

                So at some point of his movie-watching career, Justin must have realized it was lame going to the movies by himself and invited me along to see Moneyball with him. He also requested that I give a short review of the movie. This is my first guest appearance on any blog, ever, so I’ll try to not screw it up. (Though I don’t feel much like a guest since Justin gave me a deadline for this.)

                Moneyball is a true story about the 2002 Oakland Athletics and their inability to compete with the big market teams like the Yankees and Red Sox. Brad Pitt plays Oakland’s general manager and Jonah Hill plays the assistant GM. They are faced with the task of replacing their three best players that left to other teams, but have little money to work with. They come up with a new system of evaluating players called “Moneyball”.

                I absolutely loved the movie and thought Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill were good complements to each other. (Although Justin was disappointed Brad never took his shirt off.) It mixed the right amount of humor and drama, and really made you feel like you had an emotional investment in the games. At one point, Justin’s friend (I can’t remember his name, we’ll call him Anonymous) sighed loudly as Oakland gave up a big play. I was right there with Anonymous, totally invested in the outcome, just like any real sports game. If you’re a sports fan, this movie is a definite must. If you’re not, I would still recommend it. I would give the movie 5/5 but I think Justin was probably more around a 4/5. (Again, I think this is partially due to the fact that Justin was really pulling for a Brad Pitt shirtless scene.) It’s been a pleasure guest starring on Justin’s worldwide blog; hopefully you will enjoy Moneyball as much as I did.
