Charlie Wilson’s War (A)

This past weekend I went to see Charlie Wilson’s War and was quite impressed, thus the reason this movie got an A.  I would definitely go see this movie a second time but might just wait for it to come out on DVD and go buy it or something. 

The plot outline; A drama based on a Texas congressman Charlie Wilson’s covert dealings in Afghanistan, where his efforts to assist rebels in their war with the Soviets have some unforeseen and long-reaching effects. (Copied from IMDB.com)

So Charlie Wilson (Tom Hanks) is a congressman who represents the second congressional district of Texas, which apparently wants nothing from the world around them.  There is something in there he says but I can’t remember what it is.  For one reason or another he is quite interested more so than others it seems in Afghanistan and the war that is going on between them and the Soviet Russians.  Then he has his friend who lives in Houston, Joanne Herring (Julia Roberts, has a hot bikini scene) who is also interested in liberating the Afghanis.  And so there is how he gets all started with this and there are various other subplots that play out in the movie as well that I won’t get into.  The ending is very interesting and I don’t want to give it away, but I think the decisions made in that room have implications that we are seeing today with the war on terror. 

There is no sex in the movie but in the first few scenes that are some completely nude girls who have no problems showing their boobies and butt on the camera, along with Tom Hanks butt.  There is quite some language in the movie though, so if crude language bothers you then perhaps you should decide to go see another movie. There is also talk of drug use and people being stoned but there is no actualy drug use although there is quite a lot of alcohol drinking going on. 

Finally there were quite a few cute girls in the movie.  Amy Adams looked smokin’ in this movie.  Along with Julia Roberts in her bikini scene.  Charlie Wilson seemed the lady’s man with his “jailbait” cute lookers he had working in his office.  Finally a girl that was some guy’s daughter who was complaining about something that never seemed to be resolved in the movie anyway, Emily Blunt.  She was looking good in the scene after they were in his office walking around Tom Hank’s apartment in her underwear but nothing else exciting happened there except to see her.

The Simpsons Movie

I don’t watch the TV show the Simpsons.  I think one reason is that when I was younger and it was on my mom used to think it was the devil show so she would get angry with me whenever I would watch it and no show is worth being grounded for.  Now that I am grown I simply don’t watch it for I have no idea what reason for.  Maybe I am out of the house when it comes on, you know I don’t even know when it does come on.  Regardless I did watch the movie this past weekend.  We were bored so that is what we picked up.  It was funny with a good underlying message about parenthood.  It was pretty funny too, funnier than the other movie we picked out.  So if you haven’t seen it I would suggest it simply because I liked it, I laughed.  I’m still sucking at giving movie reviews here, so I’m going to stop while I’m ahead.

Alvin and the Chipmunks

I got to see Alvin and the Chipmunks with my nephew and niece when I was home for Christmas down in Mississippi.  I must say it wasn’t too bad it was cute and probably still a kiddie movie.  The heroin of the story, Claire (played by Cameron Richardson) was extremely attractive.  That’s besides the point since I was sitting next to my fiancee and I will never get a chance to meet her, I can still look right?  So it was a good movie, I’m new at this writing movie reviews thing.  My fiancee liked most Theodore because he was the fat one.  It had a rocky beginning with the main character losing his job and then his girlfriend because of these talking chipmunks.  It was really neat to see how he tried to set boundaries but was undermined by the story’s atagonist.  Then to watch the little baby chipmunks be sad.  The songs the chipmunks sang had some crazy good harmonies when it was just them singing.  It was a good movie and I enjoyed it whatever that means to people.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you thought of the movie.
