Quick movie reviews: beer, blasphemy, and brake pads
"Why don't we get you out those wet clothes and into a dry martini."
Beerfest: I love a good R rated comedy. And this is one: lots of drinking, cussing, and boobage. Freakin' hilarious.
The Da Vinci Code: Critics gave this a severe beatdown, but it was actually pretty good. Though it was dumbed down - and the source material ain't literature to begin with - at least the words "sacred feminine" were only used once or twice (as opposed to it appearing in the book about 500 times). What's scarier than a murderous albino monk? Tom Hanks's hair.
Cars: I am a Pixar junkie and while it had all of the qualities you'd expect (top notch animation, decent story, lots of humor), this is probably my least favorite of the films that they've put out. Maybe it's because I'm not a car guy or NASCAR fan. Or maybe it's because I despise Larry the Cable Guy. It's still a good flick, though.
