TK Movie Review- Bridesmaids, not your ordinary Chick Flick

Well hello friends and followers...

So the other day Amanda and I decided to venture out to Marcus Cinema to catch a movie we've both been wanting to see and that movie was 'Bridesmaids.' Now being a guy I at first glance thought it was just nothing more then a chick flick and I wasn't going to enjoy the ladies perspective. Well after watching it my friends, insert foot in mouth here, it was freaking hilarious, and I mean freaking hilarious.

The movie has a pretty solid comedic cast led by Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph but also features some other familiar faces including Rose Byrne, Ellie Kempler and my new favorite comedy actress Melissa McCarthy who steals the movie in every scene she is in.

The premise of the movie is clear from the title. Annie (Wiig) whose life is in utter disarray, finds out that her life long best friend Lillian (Rudolph) is getting married and is asked to be the maid of honor. But little does she and the audience watching know that she soon finds herself facing some stiff competition from Helen played wonderfully by Byrne, who has now been deemed Lillian's new BFF. So of course the two of them try to upstage each other and since Annie has very little money and no real life security let's say can't afford the nicest of things, is put into awkward situations by Helen because she is a very rich and popular lady.

So the movie focuses on their rival and then the rest of the group as well. There are two moments in the movie that will stand out to me for many years to come and if you've seen the movie you'll know what I'm talking about right away. The first is the scene in which our ladies find themselves trying on different bridesmaids dresses and suddenly start to feel sick. Cue the uncontrollable laughter now guys. This scene becomes so funny and disgusting it's like a bad car wreck, you can't turn away from it. Needless to say the girls have the sudden urge to use the bathroom and since there is only one toilet....well use your imagination to what else is in the bathroom to use!

The second scene is the one in which we see our two rivals slowly start to unite over the fact that they can't find the bride to be. So in order to get the attention of Annie's love interest Officer Nathan, Annie turns on the charm and does things behind the wheel that no human being should do while driving. Drinking, smoking and of course texting behind the wheel.

Bridesmaids is not just a funny movie but has a good heart behind it. The friendship that the girls have is tested and the struggles that I'm sure all girls bridal parties go through are put to the ultimate test, maybe a bit more because after all, it's a Hollywood movie here.

Wiig is terrific as the funny leading lady but also shows off her sensitive side in the picture as well which is a refreshing thing to see on screen. But the major shout out goes to Megan McCarthy for portraying the larger then life Megan. There are some classic movie moments and I use the term classic very seriously here. She has some moments in that movie that truly make you want to pee your pants. She is the total package in this movie and Bridesmaids is a film that both guys and girls will definitely walk out of smiling.

Bridesmaids earns a 3.5/4 on the TK scale!


It's been a few days

Hello friends,

Sorry I haven't posted anything since Wed the 25th, it's been a long and hectic Memorial Day Weekend, which by the way, I hope everyone had a good weekend and holiday.

I worked all weekend but was off today so had a nice relaxing day with Amanda and her family. We went and saw 2 movies in the last few days: Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part 2 (both of which I'll try to post movie reviews soon).

It's another long work week in store for me but hey I got my cruise in less then 2 weeks so it's worth it.

Happy Wednesday Everyone...

Just checking in to all my followers out there. Hope everyone had a nice day today, I sure did. Went to the mall with Amanda to finish shopping for the cruise and then had a nice relaxing evening watching the season finale of Modern Family and then catching the last 30 mins of Idol to see Scotty win, congrats to him. (still wish James Durbin would of won)

Already the middle of the week, where does the time go? I am really excited for this weekend to roll around, not sure why but I am. Working a lot and making money is good but it just takes me another day closer to my cruise with all the Chi-Town cruisers, I can't freaking wait!!! It's almost here!!!

Anyways, we'll be at work for like 10 hours tomorrow so no new postings I'm afraid but def keep checking back and take a look at the new poll question I got up, it concerns the movies of course.

Thanks guys for reading!

TK's Takeout- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Review

Ahoy mates,

When you think of successful movie franchises what comes to mind? Star Wars, Jurassic Park and Lord of the Rings sure but there is another successful franchise that has raked in over 2 billion dollars across the globe and that is the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. If you're like me then you fell in love with these movies and characters all the way back in 2003 with the first installment; The Curse of the Black Pearl. Now while many would say the second and third installments fell far shorter then the first I respectively disagree.

I loved the second and third movies because they each had a unique story that I found very enjoyable and entertaining which brings us to 2011 with Disney's fourth installment of their Pirates franchise entitled On Stranger Tides.

This time around for our beloved Jack Sparrow, excuse me Captain Jack Sparrow the landscape and journey have changed. Enter Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and the returning Geoffrey Rush and remove the love couple Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. Pirates 4 even with a whole new group of faces and characters to learn does tell a good story with a lot of interesting twists and turns along the way.

I loved the back story of Angelica (Cruz) a woman from Sparrow's past and how it is she comes to find Jack and lead him on a quest to find the fountain of youth before others do. Cruz is a terrific actress and I think she adds a new refreshing twist to the franchise because it is fun to see her and Jack interact with one another because clearly there is a connection the two of them are trying not to act on. Also playing a vital role in the movie is Blackbeard played by the terrific Ian McShane.

Blackbeard is the pirate all pirates fear according to many in the movie and we soon discover the Angelica is the daughter of Blackbeard and that the two of them are out to find the fountain of youth with Jack's guidance and experience before the one legged man comes to kill Blackbeard. The one legged man is the new King's loyal subject- Captain Barbosa played by the awesome Geoffrey Rush. Barbosa isn't a feared pirate captain anymore my friends instead he is dressed up in proper clothes and has to wear a silly wig as he is King's man.

What P4 lacks though at times is a little more development of some of the characters I found fascinating. The mermaids for instance are only given a little bit of screen time and I found myself wanting to know more about them and what made them how they are shown on screen. Another character who I found particularly interesting is Philip Swift, a missionary captured by Blackbeard. Here is a man completely devoted to his religion and is on board to hopefully restore Blackbeard's soul and save him from going to the underworld. He is a man of great faith and shows all living things love and I wanted to know a little bit more about him.

The action and story in P4 does however flow pretty consistently throughout the movie but does slow down a little bit at times to tell the story maybe a little bit more then it needs to. While all that is fine and dandy I just could of used a little bit more action instead of dialogue. Depp is once again terrific as Captain Jack Sparrow and while the film does recycle some of the previous jokes we've seen in past installments he still makes you laugh out loud and provide us moviegoers what any summer movie should provide, entertainment.

It's a good movie to see with a group of friends or it does make for a nice date night movie out. If you're interested and SPOILER ALERT- there is a small scene after the credits that doesn't set up a fifth Pirates movie but needless to say it's a scene that will spark up some interest for you and your friends to discuss.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides gets 3/4 stars on the TK's Takeout Movie Scale!!!


A midnight posting...it's always good in a 1-2-3 way

Hey everybody,

Just got done watching Saturday Night Live's season finale with host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga, and it was awesome.

I think that in my lifetime, there hasn't been a better host then Justin Timberlake and I'll argue it with anybody. Sure they reuse a lot of his sketches like the singing billboard guy, 'bring it on to omletville, and the Barry Gibb talk show with him playing Robin Gibb but who cares? The digital shorts are things of legend now. Dick in a Box, Mother Love and the three-way one tonight, all are pop classics if you ask me.

The show is always funny because JT can relate to the youth of America today and he is a very good comedic actor and is going to be one for a very long time to come. I think it was a terrific job on SNL's part to have JT host a season that featured some very bad episodes.

HINT- have Bill Hader as Stefon each week because that is the best character to come along in a long long time.

Major kudos again to JT because he is unstoppable as host of SNL. He should host at least once a year because he is freaking fresh and hysterical every time out. Also gotta give props to Lady Gaga. She is the biggest thing in music right now and while the vocals weren't the greatest tonight(she worried too much about performing) I still enjoyed her performances.

Anyways, have a great rest of your weekend everybody, and oh yeah about the end of the world thing...I'M STILL HERE!!!

TK's Take: Office Season 7 Finale Recap

Well Office fans it's been quite a ride this year for the Dunder Mifflin staff. No storyline was touched on more then the departure of our beloved Michael Scott, boy do I miss him already.

With tonight's season finale we were all left wondering, who was going to take over Dunder Mifflin and fill the seat of the late great Michael Scott. While I have my opinion on whose the perfect fit to lead the Office (we'll touch on that later,) let's take a look at who interviewed for the job tonight and whose really in the running to take over.

Ricky Gervais- did the computer interview and will not be joining the show. He wouldn't mesh well with this cast and I think he is too far out there to blend with the cast. I personally don't think he is that great and I would absolutely hate to see him join the cast, so I'm ruling him out.

Ray Romano- thought his character on tonight's episode was pretty funny. I loved how he was very awkward and strange and pulled out a sandwich in the middle of the interview. Back to reality- Romano is contracted with his current show Men of a Certain Age otherwise I think he would seriously have been considered to take over as branch manager, so he is out of the running.

Catherine Tate- didn't like this character at all, not one bit, I can't stress this enough. Thought she was boring and just plain dull in my opinion, and luckily I don't think she'll be taking over anytime soon, so she is out of the running.

Warren Buffet- really? Next...

Will Arnett- While a lot of people consider him to be a very funny and talented actor, TK doesn't. I'm sorry people but everything Will has done I personally find stupid and boring. I don't think he would gel with this cast at all and doesn't fit in to what the show is about. Plus the fact he has a new pilot with Christina Applegate this fall, so he is out as well.

That leaves Jim Carrey and James Spader.

Jim Carrey while he was only shown briefly was freaking hysterical. The man is a true comedy genius and I think he would be a great fit for the show. Now while there is next to a zero percent chance the show will sign him, I'm sorry to say it he won't be joining the show. He's way too big of a movie star to give that up and focus on a television sitcom. It sucks because I think he would of been a great fit.

James Spader- easily my favorite candidate of the night. I loved this character and how he played with Jim and pretty much everyone in the interviewing process. I loved how direct and kind of mysterious he was and I really enjoyed it. I think this character showed great promise and could fit in nicely with the cast. I loved his one on one with Dwight downstairs as he was trying to figure Dwight out, wait he just did, too funny if you ask me. I think Spader is a serious contender to take over the show's leading spot.

Now on to the guys who actually are a part of the show and interviewed...Dwight, Andy and Darrel.

Dwight- what else can you say about his dedication? I mean he wrapped himself up as a burn victim and pretended to be someone else just to get an interview, that has to count for something. Unfortunately Dwight will not be taking over the bosses chair next season, just a gut feeling, but you can't blame a man for trying.

Andy- I would love to see Andy in charge so I'm just going to come right out with it. I think Andy brings such a spirit and passion to the show and that is brought out by the terrific Ed Helms. I think the show sometimes under utilizes him and bringing him to the forefront would present the show with a fresh new life and that's exactly what this show needs now that the heart and soul, Carell has left the building. Sure his sales records aren't good but he is educated and likes everyone in the office, his words not mine!

Darrel- I'll come right out and say it, just like I did for Andy, I would almost stop watching the show with Darrel in charge. I've always hated this character as I think he adds nothing to the show and it's whole. He was better off as a warehouse worker where we only saw him once in a while but I'm not liking him as the branch manager. The guy isn't management material I mean come on. I really hope the writers don't put him in charge.

Having said all that and taking all names into consideration my gut feeling for who will take over the show as new Branch Manager is Andy Bernard. I think Ed Helms is the big draw right now what with the success of his movie career and I think the Office writers and producers will need someone with that star power who can keep the audience tuning in each week. I think Ed Helms will energize a new life into a show that come this September is entering it's 8th season, something that is not easily done people.

If it isn't going to be Helms, I think James Spader is a definite contender as I'm pretty sure he hasn't signed up for any new fall pilots so his name has to be taken into consideration. He showed tonight he can be funny, interact well with other cast members like Jim, Toby and Dwight and can bring something new and fresh to the show. Not to mention he is a pretty successful and very talented sitcom star.

Other side notes about tonight's episode:
-Phyllis is not Erin's mother, didn't think the show would go that route and I'm glad to see they didn't...that would of been a bit awkward and a really moment if you ask me.

-I hope this sticks...Gabe is moving back to Florida with Jo and leaving the branch. Hated his character from the beginning and I think this will be a good move for the branch and the show.

-Andy and Erin...they will get back together and I think it is a story that will be carried out throughout season 8.

-Angela marrying the supposed 'gay' senator and rubbing it in everyone's faces. A storyline I could really care less about.

Overall this season definitely had some high moments while also suffering through some low ones as well. The last couple of episodes that featured Michael were some of the most genuine and heartfelt the show has ever produced and it's only going to get tougher to replace him and his legacy.

What does the future hold for this once very esteemed show, only time will tell. The people behind the scenes need to make a tough decision this summer to whose taking over the branch because it's going to be a move that ultimately keeps the show going for a couple of more years or be a choice that results in season 8 being the last season of the show.

See you guys back at Dunder Mifflin this fall.

TK's Take on Seth MacFarlane rebooting The Flintstones

In a rather interesting bit of news I stumbled across today was the piece about how Seth MacFarlane the genius behind Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show is apparently scooping up all the rights to reboot The Flintstones and place it on Sunday nights in the animation domination block of his shows. Word of advice Seth, can I call you Seth? Let's not ruin a good thing please. Those are classic characters and is just a show in my opinion that shouldn't be tampered with. You've already done enough to ruin Family Guy for me because that show is no where near the good quality it used to be. Jokes are reused and bits are inserted into an episode for four to five minute chunks at a time, it's like the writers couldn't think of anything and I think that that is an insult to loyal fans of the show, correct me if I'm wrong here?

Family Guy at it's ultimate pinnacle was as funny as anything that has ever aired on television. The random cutaways and flashbacks were pee in your pants funny and was something that was really never done on TV before. But now the show is seeming to fall very fast from atop the once proud mountain top and as a loyal fan of the show for years and years, I'm starting to not even care about the show anymore, just like I did with The Simpsons.

But for Seth to now turn his attention to another project aka The Flintstones it just seems utterly stupid and pointless to bring them back into the 21st century. His other shows will more then likely suffer more because he is no longer fully focusing on them. Family Guy was great when he only focused on that show but once American Dad came along and then The Cleveland Show, that was the downfall of Family Guy in my mind. The second Cleveland left the show Family Guy was no longer funny and I can't recall a classic episode of FG in many years. You look back at the old ones and you're dying cause you're laughing so hard.

I can't be the only one who feels this way and so I want to hear from you guys as well. What do you think about this? Will you be watching a new twist on our favorite Bedrock characters? Or will Seth and company ruin that for you also?

TK's Takeout: Thor Review

Well my friends, the official box office season got underway with the release of Thor this past weekend.

If you're like me then this film was certainly an intriguing one to say the very least. Heading into the film I didn't know much about the origins of Thor and his stories in the comics but I knew enough to set up a ground base for the film.

That being said and after seeing the film I have to give you guys my honest opinion of the film and that is, it was a good film but far too slow moving for my liking. I understand that this film is the first in the characters history and its purpose is to introduce us to a whole new man and world but the time it takes the movie to do so just drags on for too long.

The movie opens up with a team of scientists headed by Jane (Natalie Portman) who are investigating these disturbances in the sky and are trying to see if it ties into their research. All of a sudden this storm starts to happen and Thor is beamed down to Earth and is hit by Jane's car. Cue the flashback to see how exactly Thor was banished and we are taken away to Asgard, the home realm to Thor and his people. The visual appearance of the city is breathtaking and the films creators did a terrific job at bringing this historic mythological city to the big screen.

Thor's father, Odin, is played brilliantly by the wonderful Anthony Hopkins and he portrays a true God like figure in the film. He is strong, powerful and a confident king who appears ready to hand over the reigns to his first born son Thor but only before there is a break in to their weapons vault. Thor and his team of elite warriors want to venture out to Jotunheim, the home of the frost giants who are responsible for breaking into Asgard, but doing so could spell war for the two realms.

There we are treated to the first major battle scene in the movie and I must say the visual effects used were tremendous. Thor's swinging of his mighty hammer were truly a spectacle to watch on the screen and the fights were very well choreographed and the frost giants used in the movie were quite good as well.

After Thor engages what seems hundreds of these frost giants he breaks the treaty these two nations have and trouble ensues and war is on the horizon. The king then curses his son from Asgard taking away his powers and his mighty hammer sending them to Earth as well.

Thor is a very funny movie as well. There are a lot of great one liners our God of Thunder says because well, he is a stranger to our universe and has no idea of how things work down here. With the guidance of Thor, Jane slowly begins to put the pieces of the puzzle together and Thor opens up to her about his world and the other realms out there that he and his people are in charge of protecting but all of that is challenged by the frost giants and traders within Asgard's own borders.

The film if you're a fan of the Marvel universe also offers us a first glance of another Avenger, Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner, sorry if I spoiled that for anyone!

Ultimately what Thor tells in story, the film lacks in action and I'm going to be honest I could of used a lot more action. I thought the story was very easy to follow and is something that any new fan can relate to and understand and the film has something for everyone.

The acting is very good in the movie highlighted I think by Hemsworth, Portman and Hopkins respectively and while the story does jump from realm to realm at times it isn't that complicated and the film ends at a good spot setting up the inevitable sequel, which Marvel has already confirmed, there will be a Thor 2.

Thor earns a 3 out of 4 star rating on the TK Scale and if you're a fan of the Thor comics, you will most likely enjoy this movie.


TK Spotlight: Lady Gaga HBO Concert Special

So if you guys weren't aware this past weekend the Lady Gaga Concert special that was recorded in Madison Square Garden aired on HBO. I myself have been a Lady Gaga fan from the time that Poker Face came out and have liked most of the songs she has released since then.

I have to say after watching this special I enjoy her even more. She is a true performer in every sense of the word. She puts so much thought into her performances and she wants to make sure that the fans are getting what they paid for, a good show. I found it interesting to see what she addressed during the special as well, for instance, the topic of her lip-singing.

And to that she replied I have never lip singed nor will I ever. Just because someone dances and sings at the same time doesn't mean they are lip singing. She is on her way to becoming mentioned with the likes of the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Showmanship wise and the dedication each had to their fan base and their concerts is so similar and quite obvious when you see the both of them perform. Michael's ability to dance like that and still have the energy to sing for a two hour set is astonishing and the same can be said for Gaga. She puts just as much energy into her stage set up, costumes and of course the choreography.

She is giving it 110% each and every time out and wants to put her staple on music history. (She already is) I'm writing this just because I am a fan of her and while many people call her 'out there,' 'weird' and 'strange' she is certainly not what others call her, untalented. She is in my opinion one of the most talented people that the world has ever seen and I would go as far to call her the most influential artist during my life time. Think about it? What other artists in the last 25 years has come onto the music scene and taken it by the horns and made it their own? No one comes to my mind, but please if you can think of someone do share your thoughts.

Gaga is in a class of her own and I think she will only continue to get bigger and better. Her new CD Born This Way arrives in a couple of weeks and it is going to be an enormous hit. It'll be something people are probably talking about for a long long time, but whether you like it or not, Gaga is talented, inspirational and is someone that is taking the music industry by storm and turning it on it's feet with each new song she releases.

The Office: Inner Circle Recap

Dear my fellow followers of The Office:

Tonight's recap isn't going to be in great detail because if you're like me you are left scratching your head asking 'What did I just watch?' Maybe I'm too much of a TV critic I don't know but if this is the best that the creative team behind the Office could do tonight then the future of the show is in serious jeopardy without Michael Scott.

Tonight's episode centered around DeAngelo and his inner circle friends. Jim, Kevin, Gabe and Darrel made up the inner circle and left many outsiders feeling alone and upset that they weren't part of the crew, mainly Andy Bernard. This also leads to the women of Dunder Mifflin to come to Jim and say that DeAngelo is a sexist and doesn't treat everyone equally and with respect. So of course Jim brings this up to DeAngelo and what happens to Jim? He gets kicked out of the inner circle only to be replaced by Andy.

From there the show which started off poorly, takes a turn for the worst and fast. The inner circle is seen creating a lot of noise and so when Pam goes to ask them to quiet down we see that they are getting treated to a dunking session by DeAngelo. Are you freaking kidding me here? Seriously? This is the best thing that the writers could come up with for tonight's show?

So of course Jim likes to play with him and challenges DeAngelo to go show the entire staff what he has got with a real ball and a real hoop. So Jim measures out the distance that DeAngelo will have to jump in order to dunk the ball and of course he can't pull it off so what happens? DeAngelo jumps and dunks the ball from about a foot away and pulls the entire basketball hoop down on him sending him to the hospital. Hooray the best thing to happen all night.

I'll tell you what my friends, if Will Ferrell is brought on board for an entire season instead of just a mini arc (he only signed up for four episodes and tonight was episode 4) I might quit watching this show, that is how badly Will Ferrell has ruined my all time favorite show. In his four episodes he has added so few laughs and has proven in my eyes to not mesh at all with the current cast which is fine by itself.

NBC had better pray they find a good fitting big celebrity name to fit in with this show's cast not named Will Ferrell. I can't be the only one who hates him on this show this much right? I personally think that by the season finale which is in two weeks we will know who is taking over the Dunder Mifflin branch and I have my own thoughts on who it should be, which I'll share at a later date and time.

But if tonight is any indication on how the show would be with Will Ferrell in charge well NBC you have just lost a die hard viewer, because I couldn't tolerate him for an entire season.

TK's Takeout Weekly 'Sound Off'

Hello everybody,

So as I was at work today my boss Tommy (name shoutout) suggested something that I could implement into the blog and I loved it so much I decided to run with it. The sound off though is not about me, it's about you guys. Here's how it is going to work.

I will present a topic at the beginning of each week and I want you guys to comment on it. At the end of the week I will provide you all with my take on the subject, using thoughts and comments that you guys leave in my take so that we all get our points across and so it's not just one sided. So please leave me your thoughts and tell your friends to leave their comments as well.

So the first ever topic for the brand new TK's Takeout 'Sound Off':

As we all know Osama Bin Laden was just recently killed by the United States military in a coordinated effort led by our troops. So after the news broke, people all over Facebook were sharing their thoughts and feelings and were often celebrating the fact that this man was killed.

So the question is, was it wrong or right to celebrate Bin Laden's death on a public forum like Facebook? Is it wrong to celebrate a man's death?

Let the posting begin!!!
