Community

Community TV CastI have to admit, I am a huge Community fan. This Television show is in its first season and they’ve already got me hooked and loving the characters. You can see from the very start, and this is what I love about the show, that Community takes risks where other tv shows are afraid to go.

The show is centered around a group of students taking a first-level Spanish class. This group is about as diverse as it comes, having people from almost every race, nationality, and religion. This group, through the course of the show, learns about each other and experiences some of the craziest things ever shown on television.

A recent episode involves Jeff Winger, drop out Law student, taking a pool class for an easy A. When Jeff arrives for the first day it is apparent that he is pretty good at pool, but is kicked out for not wearing the proper gym attire to class. When Jeff returns, he challenges the teacher to a game while wearing shorts. As the game intensifies people start to gather and the teacher decides to rip off his shirt and Jeff follows suite. The teacher proceeds to play, but gets angrier and eventually rips off not only his shorts, but also all other material of clothing on his body. Jeff and he finish the game nude in front of the entire school (nothing is shown, no worries).

In another episode two male students are required to escort their Asian Spanish teacher to a dance, because he will fail them otherwise. And the list of crazy things goes on.

If you want to try out a new tv show, hop on Hulu and give Community a try, you might be disturbed sometimes, but you’ll be laughing too.

Friday Night Movie Night, March 19, 2010

The weekend has finally came around and I’m sure you’re ready for it.  Here is where we post our recommendations for anyone and everyone interested in watching a movie, on any medium.  We hope you enjoy and take our advice.

    Going to the Theater:

If you want to get out and actually spend money in our current economy, here are the top two movies that everyone should enjoy if you haven’t seen them already (click title to see trailer).

First Choice: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Close Second: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Diary of a Wimpy Kid looks like it could be a decent movie, or at least it has the potential to do so.  I saw the preview and think, if done right, this movie could bring back all those terrible memories of middle school.  Oh and I still think that Percy Jackson and the really long title is a great movie, but don’t take my word for it…

Precious movie trailers

    Redbox:

If you’re too lazy and don’t feel like going to the theater, then here are our two suggestions for you to pick up at your local unnamed movie-disposal box that may or may not be the color red.

First Choice: Precious

Close Second: The Hurt Locker

Precious looks like a great movie to make you feel terrible about life, but was recommended by our friends over at the Academy, so it must have some redeeming value.  The same goes for Hurt Locker, except for the whole story line thing.

The Rock Movie PosterNetflix:

If you can’t even make it to a local rental place or redbox, but have streaming Netflix at home via computer or xbox, then here are a couple of winners for your night.

First Choice: The Rock

Close Second: Vertigo

The Rock is an older, but awesomer, action film, that I have enjoyed watching over and over throughout the years.  This Nicholas Cage movie actually has a plot and doesn’t involve him acting soooo much like Nicolas Cage.  Vertigo is an oldy but a goody and is worth the two hours.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget that you’re closer Monday every single minute…

Let us know in the comments section if you plan on or did watch any of these films. Also, any ideas for weekend movie/tv activities are welcome as well.

Poll of the Week: Your Feelings on Hurt Locker Winning

avatar movie posterThe results are in and over half of you were not satisfied with Avatar loosing. It looks like most people thought that Avatar should have won the Academy Award’s Best Picture honor. I’m going to have to agree with the results. Avatar was by far the best movie of the year, it made more money than ANY other movie EVER. I guess the fact that more people saw Avatar than Hurt Locker doesn’t indicate AT ALL that they might have LIKED IT BETTER. Oh well, but we thank you for your votes, too bad they didn’t count them for the Academy Awards.
