Welcome folks, I’m Gene Seagull.
And, I’m Roger eBird. Welcome to the movies.
Roger, tonight we are reviewing three movies, The A-Team, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Knight and Day. An eclectic collection to be sure.
Gene, we need to talk about next weeks movies …
Oh Roger, quit complaining. I loved The A-Team, it was a brilliant homage to one of the 1980s most iconic television shows that also featured Mr. T.
Which the movie didn’t, pity the fools that paid to watch it. You know Gene, I had my professor friend at Stanford run some numbers. She figured that in order to fly a tank, you need a rate of fire that is impossibly too high. The hydro-shock alone would turn the tank’s occupants brains to Jello.
I say Roger, in my best Ed McMahon voice, I did not know this. OK, I give this movie a thumbs down as I assume that you do too. [nod of the beak in agreement]. Moving on now to The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
Gene, when Heath Ledger died so should have this movie. His Batman movie was a fitting epithet, this one was not.
Roger, Terry Gilliam was able to resurrect his movie. Heath’s friends came to the rescue. Using the mirror as a theatrical device allowed the movie to come together.
Gene, I vote no and you vote yes, we have a split vote. On to our third movie Knight and Day. This movie is a star vehicle, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
Roger, I liked this movie. It was just the kind of fluff that summer audiences hope for. I think that we both give this movie two thumbs up.
Seagull and eBird, this is Sparrow. The best that you could offer was three stars for Knight and Day. Temple Grandin is easily a four star performance. Suck it up guys! Gulls rule and buoys drool.
