My family has been out of town for the last three nights. I have seen three movies at the cinema!
Major League (1989)
Notable lines: I haven't been an athlete for three years. Books are my life now. -- Rene Russo
I look like a banker in this. -- Charlie Sheen, in a cutoff jean jacket and a tank top or something and a tie tied around his neck, per the dress code of the fancy Cleveland French restaurant he was at.
(Not word for word quotes, just as I remember them)
Other than these two lines this movie was not very great. But the Tribe wins the pennant so there were a few chills down the old spine.
I literally don't remember the name of this movie (2014)
I don't know how this movie didn't catch on. Best movie of the week!
Notable stuff: Just a great action movie! Not too much else to it.
Notable lackluster stuff: So it's Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers. However, we never learn the one thing I was hoping to learn: how does Tom Cruise find himself in this weird world-- that is, why does the first scene happen? But this was the best movie of the weekend. Would recommend. With two thumbs even.
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
This one was a drag. However, Michael Fasbender is excellent. I think I liked X-Men: First Class better. This movie gets no thumbs. Such a let down. I was in the theater Saturday night for whatever that other movie was called and I saw the trailer for this one, and I guess I shrugged my shoulders and thought well that looks good. The trailer delivered far more spine shivering than did the movie. The movie kind of sucked.
