Its time for another Movie Adventures of Courtney *that’s me in case you forgot* and Robyn! Unfortunately these movies were supposed to be up before Halloween but well I sort of goofed and totally spaced watching my movie, forgetting all about it until right before Thanksgiving when my movie was being played on television. Oopsies my bad. I really need someone to help me keep track of all my plans because I obviously have too much going on and can’t keep my head on straight. So ya if your interested comment down below! Now I please ask that you pretend its still October and Halloween is just right around the corner.
Okay thank you so much! What a good group of people I have following me. Now that the mood is set lets get to the movies! Obviously being “October” one must watch Monster movies and what can beat Godzilla? Nothing I say. NOTHING!!!!
What can I say about this version of Godzilla? Now firstly I’m not a really a huge Matthew Broderick fan other than Ferris Buellers day off, but I must admit that he is pretty dang good in Godzilla! This was what probably started my love for the crème del la crème of all Kaiju’s! I really enjoyed watching Godzilla smash his way throughout the city while the puny humans I mean the military try and find a way to take him down.
My favorite part has to be *spoiler alert* when M.B’s character discovers that Godzilla can reproduce offspring asexually with no female presence and is able to figure out that he is storing fish for his unborn Godzilla babies. D’aww. I was sad when they get destroyed. I’m sorry human race I must always root for that adorable fella to win I mean just look at his face, what’s not to love!
If for some insane reason you have never watched this movie I say get on with it what are you waiting for? The end of the world?
Okay I’m getting a tad bit overzealous here. I humbly apologize. Ahem.
There’s just something about watching Godzilla and getting a full-body chill when you finally see that massive creature break free of the water. You can never be disappointed when watching any movie featuring Godzilla. Just like the movie with Matthew Broderick, it was very well done. In this movie version, however, they added even greater actors and took us all the way back to Japan for some background information. I liked that they used Godzilla to help track down M.U.T.O. (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). Even though Godzilla helps them, the military still feels the need to try and kill him (or her, that was never decided). It’s hard not to cheer when Godzilla makes a getaway. I can watch this movie over and over and I wouldn’t get sick of it
Welcome movie lovers to another rendition of Movie adventures of Courtney and Robyn! As promised earlier this month here is part two of 8 movies! Decided to put our first letter of our names in front of the movie title so hopefully its a little easier to distinguish our reviews especially if you miss out on a segment.
Any ideas for our next theme? Please comment below!
Once again follow us both on twitter @GeekyGamerChick and @Tenismoresonic!
C-Hot Fuzz (2007)
Simply put its Simon ***** Pegg, need I say more? Well That wouldn’t necessarily count as a movie review now would it? What can one say about Simon Pegg Movies, You know its going to be rude, crude and a knee slapping good time! Hot Fuzz is one of my favorite Pegg films to be honest next to The Worlds End! There are some pretty gruesome death scenes but they aren’t without a little bit of comedy. Cannot forget to mention Nick Frost he is pretty badass as well, glad he appears in a lot of Peggs movies!
R-The Fog (2005)
When reading the summary for this movie, it really does sound like a pretty interesting movie. I was drawn to it by the fact it takes place on an island, but not with the usual “lost at sea” scenario. However, I think the summary given by IMDB (and Netflix) pumps it up to be more than what it is. It turned out to be just another cliché ghost story. It basically just boiled down to revenge. It was still enjoyable, don’t get me wrong, but slightly disappointing. I really did like Selma Blair’s character, though.
Welcome to Round two of Movie Adventures of Courtney and Robyn. This week our theme is the year we graduated I will be sharing with you two out of eight of our reviews the other six will come later on (two at a time). I want to spread the movies out a little bit instead of overloading the site with 8 movies. Lets not waste any time and let’s get to our first movie. Robyn graduated first so she will be up first then it will be my turn.
(Please let us know if you have a theme you would like us to do! Just send me an email Thegamehuntress@gmail.com)
War of the Worlds (2005)
I remember when this movie came out and hearing all about how when it was aired years ago on the radio, how everyone thought it was real and freaked out. To have such a huge effect on listeners, what an incredible thing to hear. I almost wish I had lived back then so I could experience that event (but I wouldn’t give up the technology I have now). I really like Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning in this movie. I’m not very familiar with the actor who played Robbie, but that character really did annoy me. Perhaps that would be a normal teenage boy reaction? Who knows. The entire movie was great, except for when it came to the ending. I was so disappointed with how it ended, I felt like there should have been this great climax. Aliens on our planet? There needs to be more action and drama and fear!
I Love Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles with a passion have since I was a little kid and has grown bigger into my adult life and is growing out of proportion each and every day. I honestly never saw the animated TMNT movie before until up about a month or two ago. I wish I had seen it sooner, it is possible I had seen it and just forgot who really knows with this brain of mine!
I loved the Cast of the characters
Raph- Nolan North (Eeek need I say more?)
Leonardo- James Arnold Taylor
Mikey- Mikey Kelley
April O’Neil- Sarah Michelle Geller
Casey Jones- Chris Evans aka Captain America!!!
I thought that the animation was done really well and the storyline was really good as well. I truly believed that they captured each of the turtles personalities to a T. Of course Raphael and Leonardo butt heads about who is a better leader, Mikey is just Mikey that’s the only way to really describe his character, and of course Donatello is the brains of the group!
My favorite character in this film was of course without a doubt Raph, not only because he is voiced by the amazing Nolan North but because he has always been one of my favorites (I used to love Donnie more as a kid but after watching the Nickelodeon TMNT show I love Raph now cause he’s voiced by Sean Astin!) He is the hot headed temperamental one but if his brothers are in trouble he is able to come around and help out with whatever is going on. You can always count on him! I will watch and rewatch this movie over and over again without being bored.
Hello once again. As promised I bring you the other half of our Reviews. Hope you enjoyed our first debut post if you haven’t seen it yet go back and check it out!
I wrote a quick thank you even though i know he will never see this post i just wanted to thank a great man for all that he has given to each of us over the years.
Thank you for making such great movies. You will always be remembered for all that you did, it’s truly sad to see someone who made people laugh/cry for so long suffer from depression. It goes to show you how everyone, even people who seemingly have the life, struggle with the inner demons of depression. I will always be your fan!
May you Rest In Peace.
Courtney’s Flick Pick
This is by far my ultimate favorite Williams film ever! I mean come on who wouldn’t love a movie about a board game that makes real stuff come out, including but not limited to, Lions, Monkeys, Giant Spiders, and much more! I could probably sit and watch Jumanji over and over again and be entertained each time.
I still remember watching it as a young girl and the awesome thing is I still have that same reaction that i once had. I was in awe of how well the special effects were for the times. I personally feel that Jumanji stands the test of time and that truly means something great and wonderful. Williams i will always remember you as Alan Parrish and the joy that character brought to my life. Thank you for making your character memorable.
I honestly forgot that Kirsten Dunst was in this film until I re-watched it on Netflix. I had watched it previously before Robin Williams passed away.
Robyn’s Flick Pick
The Birdcage (1996)
The fact that Robin Williams (who was such a great, funny, inspiring actor) plays a gay man whom owns a drag queen bar is the best thing about this movie. To me that shows tolerance, acceptance, and no care for what people think. That makes me admire him more as a person. This movie was full of funny moments and no better actors could have been chosen. Nathan Lane was amazing in his role, hitting all of the gay stereotypes right on the nose (which I believe was intended and not because that’s how the writers view gays). I believe there are lessons to be learned along with the funny moments. We see how families with gay couples go to great lengths to please those whom may not agree with how their lives are lived. Isn’t that what many people do in real life? In the end, when the conservative parents learn of situation and are helped in their escape, I think they learned to be more understanding.
Our next theme is: Graduation Year.
Until Next time,
Get your movie on!
Welcome movie lovers of all ages to the debut of our two woman Movie Club! Right now its just going to be the two of us due to time restraints on my part but more of that at a later date. We have picked a temporary name, man is it hard coming up with names for stuff Geez Louise, Movie Adventures of Courtney and Robyn *not gonna lie I instantly thought of Batman and Robin haha* if you have any suggestions for us please don’t hesitate to comment down below or you can reach us on twitter @tenismoresonic and @GeekyGamerChick.
The world recently lost one of the greatest comedians of all time in August, Robin Williams. Some of his most memorable films include Mrs. Doubtfire (a classic film), Patch Adams (one that will surely make you cry), and many more. Robyn and I have decided to honor his memory by each watching 2 of our favorite Robin Williams movies each.
Please enjoy our first two picks. Other two will come out at a later date!
Robyn’s Flick Pick
This is the movie I grew up on. When I was little, I was proud to have the same first name as Robin Williams and I watched it all the time (of course Rufio was good to look at, too). It’s also the first thing I had ever seen with Maggie Smith, Julia Roberts, and Dustin Hoffman. All of them great actors. This movie stands out from all other Peter Pan movies. It’s when Peter is older and has kids of his own, which seems like such an impossible thing. It seems rather serious at the beginning and at times can be just a little dark. It has silly moments, but mostly the comedy seems a fairly more subtle. A classic and it will always be one of my favorite Robin Williams movies.

Because of all the Looters in this town it was next to impossible to find the Original Aladdin anywhere, if it was anywhere to be found in the first place. Apparently Disney locked this movie into its vault, luckily enough we were able to find the Platinum Edition on Amazon. Williams plays The Genie and I loved his character just as much(maybe even more) in my adult life as I remember loving his character in childhood. Aladdin will always be a classic Disney movie.
One of my favorite scenes in the whole film is where Aladdin is tricked by Jafar into getting the lamp and when Aladdin meets Genie for the first time. Williams has a nice musical number, I found myself remembering the words and almost singing along, i haven’t even watched in what seems like a lifetime.
If you have never seen Aladdin your childhood was TERRIBLE! 🙂 I know I will let my children watch this great movie and hopefully their children will watch as well. Cannot beat a classic Robin Williams film whether its an animated one or live action.
