    Off the Shelf…'Cars'

    Let’s just come right out and say it. Cars was not up to par with the rest of the Pixar catalog. Sure it has tons of fans, most of whom are in the 6 to 8 year old age bracket, but something felt like it was beneath what they’re capable of producing. Yet while people, myself included, have called it the weakest link in the Pixar chain, there is a significant message that gets hidden behind the giant cartoonish eyes of Lightning McQueen. It’s on that merit the film has more going for it than the story of the toy car who lost his way.

    G-S-T Top 10 – Favorite Rain Day Flicks

    “April showers bring May flowers” and a few hours on the couch can certainly help get you through it all. Below is a breezy list of 10 films that don’t usually provide anything more than a diversion when it’s too rainy to go outside and play.

So here are some of my suggestions for something to throw in your DVD/Blu Ray player on rainy days as I find they’re just the ticket to beat the…

    Sweet Trailer…'Hall Pass'

    Here we have the trailer Owen Wilson’s latest film Hall Pass. While I do like the guy I think his novelty has worn off. Personally speaking he’s just not making anything of value anymore; merely collecting paychecks with his quirky humor. But in this economy, a job is a job and we should all be so lucky right? However this is a Farrelly Brothers film and looks like his brand of humor could be a good fit for their style of writing. While their films have been more and more disappointing, this one may just work. Anyway have a look and let me know what you think… Owen Wilson and SNL’s…

    G-S-T Top 10 – Buddy Flicks

    First off, let me preface this by saying that trying to compile a great buddy flick list is going to be hard enough.  There are so many movies that fit this description it’s almost it’s own genre.  To widdle it down to 10 was near impossible so at the bottom I have some very deserving entries in the “Honorable Mention” Category.  Next, and probably more importantly, let me tell you all that this list is devoted to my favorite movies out there that have impressive, memorable and hysterical “buddy” plot lines.  As you will see in the entries below, some films are formulaic “buddy flicks” but others are indeed not…
