Brainless Movies

With the season just starting, there hasn't been too much shopping going on what with everything being full price and all. So what does a shopaholic like me to do with my free time, while I wait for the sales to start? Well, I've started to learn how to drive (which is awesome btw) and watched a tonne of movies. Two of the more recent ones I've seen is Scary Movie 4 and She's the Man. Admittedly both are pretty brainless movies (I have enough intellectual stimulation from school) but as it turns out, there is brainless and then there is brainless.

She's the Man

This modern version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night was surprisingly good. Viola (Amanda Bynes) dresses up as her twin brother and takes his place in boarding school all in the name of soccer. On the way, lots of hilarious things happen as she struggles to be a boy and falls in love with her hot roomate Duke.

I really enjoyed seeing Amanda Bynes' makeover into a boy. Its a good thing that she's a pretty girl. . .

. . because she doesn't make a very handsome guy (right).

And did I mention that her love interest, Duke, is hot?? (Notice how I managed to fit 4 pictures of him on this post;p) You would never guess with his tragic real name, Channing Tatum, that he looked so fine.

And of course, like all shows of this genre, there was a happy ending. I walked out of the cinema with a smile on my face :D

Scary Movie 4

Out of sheer-we have nothing better to watch but we don't want to do work- frame of mind, we watched Scary Movie 4. I saw the first one and thought it was the stupidest thing I've ever seen. But I noticed that it was #1 in the Box Office this week, so I thought, maybe it improved?

I am stupid. It did not improve at all. But in fact got even stupider- and I didn't even think that was possible. The sexual jokes were lame and disgusting. The reference to the scary Japanese ghost was dumb. The aliens were pathetic. The reference to Brokeback mountain was random. And the link between all these random references was just weak. I think I actually lost brain cells watching that movie. What is America thinking putting it #1 in the Box Office??

So you see, there is the brainless that just makes you smile and then there is the brainless that actually does make makes your brain LESS.

When I saw She's the Man, I didn't realize who Channing Tatum was because it's TOTALLY a girl's name. But my word, the guy is so freakin' hot....

OMG!!!!! I LOVED the movie, "She's the Man", hahahahaa... It was hilarious and oh so cute! I like Amanda Bynes too, and she did an excellent job pretending to be a guy. I really enjoyed watching her make those funny faces. :-)

I think I hyped it up too much though, so I think if if my friends watch it, they'll be disappointed, lol. Another good girly chick flick movie is "Mean Girls".

I think you were very brave to attempt Scary Movie 4 and give it the benefit of the doubt! Now that I know they have NOT improved, I think I shall save my brain cells and not see it, lest my IQ drops 30 odd points from sitting through it!!! ;P

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
