He sounds like Seth Rogen, talks like Seth Rogen, and cracks jokes like Seth Rogen.....

Paul was an interesting comedy from the team of Superbad and I expected something a little much better but there are some good things to find in Paul.

Quick Rentals - The Big Lebowski, City of God, American History X

The Big Lebowski (1998) 
I've seen Jesus so many times, but I didn't know he smelt like pot

Having a cast reunion of a certain movie is rare because often two or more actors from the same movie will be in another movie twice, three times or more. But recently the cast of The Big Lebowski did that and it urged me to see that movie given that it was a celebrity favourite (Seth Rogen had shared his admiration for this movie in an interview) and a cult favourite.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    **** out of ****

     “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” is a classic tale of violence, greed, and deception; told through the eyes of director-co-writer Sergio Leone and through the performances of Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. What a spectacular film it is. It wasn’t well-received, particularly at its time, but it has since gone on to be regarded as a classic. Now, thanks to the film, Spaghetti Westerns are respected yet again; and that is how things shall stay for some time now. But as far as those films go, I’d have to say that this is the best I’ve seen. It’s a grand, sweeping epic built around spectacle, characters, story; all the key ingredients you need for a movie as long, visually stunning, and historically important as this one.
