When I saw the first Captain America
, I was less than impressed. The CGI was terrible, the story was hokey and not true to the source material. However, this is more like it...
A Captain America who is kicking ass and not bothering to take names? Yes, please.

This is a bit odd for Seth Rogen, but it's pretty refreshing. It's his opening statement on C-SPAN for his advocacy for Alzheimer's Disease Research. It's always good to see the more fortunate folks standing up for a cause they believe in.

Ok, here's the thing. I think Miley Cyrus is a marketing genius. All the stunts she does, the provacative performances, even her obnoxious, incessant tongue flopping around like Droopy Dog
, she forces people to talk about her. Really, we've made her way more famous than she should be. Yes, I'm blaming us
for her fame. Here's what I learned about Miley from her MTV Unplugged show.
The next Madonna, she is not. Madonna was shocking because no one else was doing what she did at that time. Miley isn't doing anything that hasn't been done before; she's just better at it than most. This duet bothered me for a couple reasons. Mostly because Madonna was off key for most of the performance and boring to watch. My other beef is with what will inevitably be called the, "passing of the torch." Miley has already claimed to be the next Madonna. Sweetheart, talk to me in 30 years. If you're still relevant, I'll consider this possibility.
I also learned Miley can actually sing. "Jolene
" is my favorite Dolly Parton song. Yes, I know enough Dolly Parton songs to have a favorite. (Runner-up would be, "Coat of Many Colors.
") When Miley announced she was about to cover that song my first thought was, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
" But as it turned out, she killed it.
Let's recap, shall we? We're responsible for Miley's fame. She's not the next Madonna. She can actually sing. That just about sums it up for me. But seriously, Miley, keep your tongue in your mouth. No one needs to see that anymore.

I'm really digging the new Eminem album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
However, in the song Rap God, Em starts rapping at the speed of light and I have no idea what he's saying. He's rapping faster than I can listen. Well played, sir.

I'm not going to lie, some of these "grind on me" Vines make me a little uncomfortable. Not because it's mostly high school boys with their shirts off, but because I can't do the move as well as they can. Until now...eat your heart out, young fellas.

The original slasher flick, Halloween is the horror movie every other horror movie is compared to and will never live up to. It is the perfect mix of terror, gore, camp, and awesomeness. It is a Halloween tradition of mine to watch this movie and it scares me every time. Of course it helps that I scare like a child left at home alone in the dark. I'll give you Haddonfield, Illinois is a fairly unobservant town, but come on. You can't have a good slasher flick if the cops are good at their job and the girls don't trip over everything while running up the stairs instead of out the door...Happy Halloween!!

If I ever do get married (I can't believe I said that with a straight face) this is the kind of girl I want to marry. Good sense of humor, laid back, and knows how to make something awful actually fun. Engagement photos are never fun for the guy. No matter what he says. But if you put a little effort into it, you may find a way to keep him entertained. Kudos to this girl!

Not sure why, but this tickled me. I especially appreciate the line, "He will be greatly missed." Some people just have too much time on their hands. I do miss Breaking Bad, but I'm not sure I'd attend a funeral for its main character.

I've never heard of Anastasia Ashley (evidently she's a pro surfer) but I would love to get to know her better. And sorry Kim, I think I'm team Anastasia on this one...

This pretty much sums me up. Enjoy! By the way, I'm really glad I grew into my glasses...

I am a huge movie fan and consider myself a bit of a buff. One of my all-time favorite directors, Wes Anderson (The Royal Tennenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox
) is releasing his follow up to the critically acclaimed Moonrise Kingdom.
There are a few things you can expect from a Wes Anderson movie - razor sharp wit, a star studded cast, and excellent direction. Below is the trailer for The Grand Budapest Hotel
. Judging from the trailer, it will be another glowing success. I can't wait!
