My first step into a much larger world!

My first entry… I have decided to start a blog! Well I figured I am a nerd in every other aspect of my life… what’s one more outlet?! First things first my name is Stephen and I am 27yrs old. I am a huge nerd and am totally ok with that! I love movies and music; I think they are two outlets that can bring people of all walks of life together. I have some major plans for this blog so if you are getting in ground floor on this deal prepare yourself for the AWESOME…. You’re welcome!

Movie Reviews! Here are a few of the films I watched over the weekend... Self congratulating fist pump!!

Ok I have to be honest I had little to no expectation from this film. The previews looked pretty lame; apart from the elderly woman climbing the wall and attacking a grown man by biting him on the neck! (Oddly enough one of my fears is being attacked by an elderly woman!) I found myself watching a supposed horror film that I found really funny! I mean the acting was bad! Really bad! If any of you were sitting on the edge of your seats wondering if Tyrese will finally seal the deal on that Academy Award he so rightfully deserves…. Sorry kids better luck next time! On a side note Lucas Black (the kid from Friday Night Lights and Tokyo Drift) how does he get work?? I am so baffled by that! Personally I think his role could have been more dramatic being played by Johnny 5 from Short Circuit, and would have been much more entertaining! Not to mention would make one hell of a preview…. Angels come to destroy the earth and mans only hope rests in the will of a machine……lucky for us that machine is….. JOHNNY 5!! (Cue gigantic explosion).

My god I will gladly hand over my $10, with a smile on my face to view that! Kind of detoured there… that will happen a lot actually! Beyond that I mean the story is pretty simple, and the ending kind of leaves you with a say what? I still give Legion the laugh factor, not to mention it has some great quotes! Legion is worth seeing but I would list it as a comedy more than any kind of suspense thriller!

This movie was great! Set in the Iraq war it chronicles essentially the days in the life of a bomb squad. Jeremy Renner plays William James a lead bomb diffuser, who handles this job where he is disarming roadside bombs much like he is mowing lawns… just carefree at points about it! This movie has a lot of action in it and there are some points that you will genuinely find yourself at the edge of your seat, anxious to see what happens next. (For me a particular scene with a sniper battle had me almost standing!) I really enjoyed it and in fact immediately went out and bought the film! I would definitely rank this a must see!!

This is the true story of Burt Munro a New Zealander who wants to take his 1920 Indian motorcycle to Utah’s Salt Flats to break a land speed record, and his journey to get there. I really enjoyed watching this movie and in my opinion there are far too few feel good movies out there. I love a character like Burt Munro he is just a good guy, not judgmental has simple needs and is just trying to make his way. To no surprise Anthony Hopkins does really well in this movie, it is definitely worth watching!

Dear Random Ninja,

First off - thank you for starting a blog. Us in the blog world welcome you. A few notes:

1) Why are you a random ninja and why did you just say you're welcome? Please explain.

2) In the next post, you are limited to five exclamation marks. Yes, 5 - no more. You had 27 in your last post so I'm expecting over an 80% reduction.

3) Ninjas + The Cutest Blog on the Block do not really go together.

Again, thanks for joining us - fist pump for you.

I take offense to the carelessness of mowing lawns in which you described in your "Hurt Locker" review. I have a lawn company and I take great pride in what I do. Please retract your statement.

Fist Pump! Biznitch
