The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Walter Mitty, once friends with adventure, now lives a boring life as a negative asset manager for Life Magazine. To get away from his boring life, he day-dreams or "zones out" as his sister calls it. One day, a very important piece of photography genius, for the cover on the last issue of Life Magazine, goes missing. It's up to Walter to find it, and face a world full of adventure.
      I heard and saw many things about this last year, but didn't think much about. I recently saw it at our local Redbox box and decided that I would watch. I didn't expects much, and just hoped it would entertain me for a couple of hours. Did it do it's job? Or did it leave me day-dreaming?

Update #2

Hey, everyone...
      Sorry for being so bad at blogging. I haven't been very attentive since making this blog. But, I find I do better on a deadline. That being said, I am now going to be posting once a week on Saturdays. This doesn't mean that ever Saturday you will find a new review on this blog, for sometime there may be a reason why I can't post (illness, family, events, etc). If there is a reason why I can't post, I will make it known to all of you in internet land by (how else) blogging about it. But, nevertheless, if I am to post anything, I shall post it on a Saturday.
       I also know I promised you a "project." It is coming. Next Saturday to be precise. This Saturday (tomorrow) I will post a review on a film I recently took part in viewing--I'll keep you suspense til then.
       Thank you all for being very patient with me this last month. I will, for sure, do my best to keep on top of things.
                                                                                                                          Apologetically Yours,
                                                                                                                                         The Filosopher

Moms' Night Out Review

Moms' Night Our Poster
     I am always on a lookout for good, funny, clean movies and I found one in Moms' Night Out. 

     Moms Ally (Sarah Drew), Izzy (Logan White), and Sondra (the amazing and remarkable and fantastic Patricia Heaton) go out on a "Moms' Night" to a fancy restaurant while their husbands take care of the kids. Little do both parties know that they are about to embark on an incredible journey...To find a baby?

     Pros: This movie has a lot of great moments. It is honestly one of the funniest movies I've seen in recent years. It's hilarious without having to be vulgar. And the jokes all hit home runs. I don't think there was one joke in this movie I didn't at least snicker at.


     A new short has been put our by a Korean studio called Alfred Imageworks: JohnnyExpress
One of my favorite scenes from the short

Update 1#

      Sorry for the long delay everyone. Between Easter, school, and everyday live, I haven't found the time to write a review. Thankfully, my life has become a little less hectic and I am able to begin doing reviews again!
      So, I've been thinking about some new ideas for a different type of review. One I came up with was New Vs. Old. In these reviews, I'll be taking an older version and a newer version of the same movie and comparing them; exposing the good and bad of them. Then, of course, have my final verdict of which one I like best.
      Also, I will be starting a project--Project Dreamworks.
Project Dreamworks
     In Project Dreamworks, I will be reviewing all of the Dreamworks films and end it with a review of The Art of Dreamworks Animation book.
     Please, comment below and tell me if you like these ideas. Also, suggestion to me any other ideas that you think I might like.
