Movie Review: The Expendables 2

Heya poutlings,

 

Well, I haven’t pouted in ages, so I’ll do some catching up now.

This weekend I took a bit of a rest weekend, spent some time with friends and even manged to go watch a movie. We decided to go see “The Expendables 2”

Now of course not knowing anything about it (it was mostly the mans choice lol) and not ever seeing the first one (well not that i can remember) off we go, get some Slush Puppies… ah what are movies without slush puppies hey?

 

So, I thought it would be the usual …. “Skop, skiet en donner” movie with loads of crappy action and loads of … no dialogue…

Well, walking into the cinema, seeing the poster with the cast on it… boy oh boy… I was sure I was in for a treat…

So here’s your cast ….

Upon seeing this poster, I got rather excited, I mean, what could be better than all “my time” heroes in one movie? Keeping in mind how old these okes are, and I was born in the 80’s, these guys were our kind of heroes, and they still are.

 

So the not to give away too much info, this movie is totally action packed, it has good dialogue and yes, they even make jokes with some of the actors relating to their “famous” lines …

Sadly though, as usual, the pretty boy dies first…. awwww…..

But considering the kick ass action (and of course they had an estimated $100 million budget) and seeing the whole cinema totally glued to the screen, this movie well deserved the ovation it received from the viewers.

 

So do yourself a favour and go watch it over the long weekend, you have 3 days to go do something you deserve!

Otherwise wait till 20 November 2012 for the DVD/Blue Ray release.

 

Have a Poutastic day!

Dazzling Miley

Heya Poutlings!

So the Miss Miley Cyrus Flashes Engagement Ring, Cleavage at Aussie Event with Liam Hemsworth!

Miley Cyrus sure looks happy, and who can blame her?!

The 19-year-old bride-to-be and her handsome fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, were stunning at the Australians in Film Awards and benefit dinner in Century City, Calif., on Wednesday.

Miley wore a low-cut black dress, flaunting her cleavage with a built-in corset, and proudly showed off her gorgeous engagement ring.

“I just wanted to wear something simple because tonight is all about him,” she told Us Weekly. Hemsworth, 22, was an honoree at the event. “I’m super stoked for him. He’s really happy and it’s great!”

The Tennessee native also gave some insight into what attracted her to her beau of three years. She explained: “I think there’s a masculinity about [Australian men] that’s like growing up in the South, like I did. It’s very respectful and they are a little bit more respectful.

She is looking stunning, and he is as sexy as usual.

Weekend Movie Crush: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Spoiler Alert)

Hey Pouters,

So have any of you seen the movie that everybody’s been talking about?

Well, if you haven’t you should get your bum into gear and go see it this weekend! Unlike some of my friends, I actually sat through the book (ask anyone who’s read it, the first couple of chapters are torturous) and in the end I was so happy I did. The book was full of twists and turns and nail-biting moments and the movie was no exception!

Rooney Mara portrayed Lisbeth Salander like nobody’s business and Daniel Craig did quite an awesome job at portraying Mikael Blomkvist.

The story starts off with Mikael – a journo, who’s been in trouble with the law for writing things about some famous dude but having no evidence to back up his claims – who get approached by some other old rich man who wants him to write book about his family. When Mikael gets there though, the old man doesn’t just want him to write a book about his family, but to solve the mystery of Harriet Vanger. Harriet was a 16-year-old girl who was kidnapped by someone in her family and (possibly) killed in the 60’s. Mikael gets promised the first rich dude’s (the one who got him in trouble with the law in the first place) head on a plate by old man Vanger if he can solve the mystery.

Following so far? Good.

Anyway when Mikael is stumped about something, he gets Lisbeth to help him. Lisbeth is a sort of  autistic goth girl who is actually really, really clever and can hack into President Obama’s porno files if she really felt like it. She helps him with the case and they eventually they solve the mystery together.

If you ask me, it’s the best movie of the year and the year has only just begun! Anyway the acting is brilliant, the cast is awesome and the scene where Lisbeth attacks her guardian after he rapes her is pure epicness and so much of girl power, it’s insane!

Go watch it Pouters – if you like a really really good movie!

P.s I never saw the Swedish version so I can’t compare.

Peace and Love xoxox

Breaking Dawn Part 1 Review (SPOILER ALERT!!!)

Hello Pouters! Did you go watch Breaking Dawn like me last night? What did you think?

Well, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! I wasn’t expecting it to be half as good as it actually was. Or as graphic! If I’m not mistaken, the movie is PG13 and if I had rated it, I’d at least give it a 16… or then again, today’s 13 year olds aren’t quite as innocent as I was at 13 a million years back.

Anyway, the movie starts off with Bella and Edward’s wedding where she stood nervous infront of a crowd of people (and vampires, duh) wearing a gorgeous Carolina Herrera masterpiece. Trying to find a picture of the dress on the internet, however, is like looking for a half naked Mother Theresa, so I’ll add a photo as soon as I can find one.

To be quite frank, it was a very plain dress with a really gorgeous design at the back. I don’t think finding a dress more suited to Bella’s personality could have been possible. Her makeup, however, was a different story. She was supposed to be so “wow” and everyone (as usual) carried on like she was the most beautiful thing on earth, when she basically looked exactly the same with a little bit of smokey eye… wow… groundbreaking.

Anyway, then they go off to their honeymoon, Edward breaks the furniture and the pillows and impregnates his blushing bride who then starts getting so sick that she looks like anorexia with a swollen stomach. Here’s where I have to give the editors MAJOR credit. I was a bit disturbed by the way Bella looked. She was scarily thin and gaunt and it bugged me a little, like it should have. Then, in one scene where she bends to pick up a cup, her ribs crack and she almost plunders to the ground. That was really hectic. Then came the birth scene and the scene where she lay on the table with her lifeless, gaunt body.

Wait, was this movie really just PG13??

Anyway, I was crying in the cinema like a little baby, even though I knew what was going to happen. I’m a loser like that, forgive me.

So, yea, it was pretty good. I would give it 5 stars! Go see it! And take your boyfriend along, he won’t hate you, he just won’t dare admit how much he liked the movie!
It’s just such a pity Breaking Dawn Part 2 is only coming out in November 2012!


Have an awesome day Pouters!
Peace and Love xoxox
