A few of us here in the office just finished the last two episodes of the last season of Dexter. I know, I know, we were way behind, but at least we have less time to wait for the next season now and with an ending like that one, I’m pretty glad about that. Halfway through the last episode I totally knew how it was going to end…to the point where I didn’t even want to watch it because I knew it would be so tense. Until halfway through that last episode though, I totally wasn’t anticipating the season ending like that. I think this was definitely one of the best seasons yet and definitely comparable to the first. I do think the whole Deb/Dexter thing is pretty strange though and I wonder if Deb would have come to the conclusion that she did had it not been for her psychiatrist. That being said, here is a sneak peek of the first two minutes of the seventh season. SPOILER ALERT- DON’T watch this if you haven’t seen all of the other seasons to completion.

Last night was the Season Premiere of True Blood! Did you watch it?! A bunch of us here at Crazy Dog did. We went to our bosses’ house and enjoyed a feast of pulled pork, watermelon salad (which is delicious if you’ve never had it), baked beans, macaroni salad, and red velvet cupcakes for dessert. We also had some red sangria to celebrate, of course. The episode started a little slow for me, but I thought it was definitely better than the start of season 4 with the weird fairies that turned into trolls. The preview for what’s to come this season definitely makes the season look pretty intense, but how could it not be when there are vampires and werewolves involved? I have read all of the books that the show is based on and the show is pretty different, but I am interested to see where the season goes. Here’s a little teaser for all of you who didn’t see last night’s episode and what’s to come.
This past Friday, since it was rainy and cold out, my boyfriend and I ordered Papa John’s Pizza (and cheesy bread of course!) and watched a scary movie. The movie we watched was “The Pact”. I expected it to be one of those cheesy low-budget horror films, but it actually turned out to be pretty good. The basic plot is that two sisters go back to their childhood home after their mother dies to take care of her belongings. One sister disappears and the second sister starts experiencing some very odd/scary events within the house. That’s pretty much all I can say without giving anything away.
Let’s just say that after we finished the movie, I didn’t want to walk out in the hallway by myself in the dark. I also was a little freaked out to sleep in my own bed without my bedside light on. If you get a chance, definitely see this movie! Below is the trailer for you enjoyment.
I hope you all had an awesome Memorial Day! Mine was spent laying by the pool in my complex, grilling, and then going to see Men in Black 3 in IMAX-3D. The movie was pretty good, but I honestly think seeing any movie in IMAX-3D would make it good. However, I think the movie would have been good even if I saw it in a regular theater in regular D. It definitely helped that Tommy Lee Jones was back in this one. The plot was also pretty good…much better than the plot of the second movie. They pretty much acted like the second movie never happened in this one, which probably wasn’t a bad thing. The movie had a couple laugh out loud parts and a couple spots that made me jump. I would give this movie about a 7 out of 10.
I don’t know about you guys out there, but I am super excited to see “American Reunion”. I have to admit, I saw the other three movies in the theater and I got a good laugh out of all of them, even “American Wedding”. I feel like I should be going to see this movie with MY High School friends since I saw the first one with them. Also, I’ve heard good things about it. For those of you out there who have seen it, what did you think?
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty pumped that “Titanic” is out in 3D. I was in eighth grade when the movie came out for the first time and I saw it at least three times in the theater. One of the times that I saw it, the theater was so crowded that my parents and I had to sit in one of the first rows and I’m pretty sure I got semi-seasick. Another one of the times I saw the movie I was with my friend and she drank an extra-large soda throughout the movie and missed the end because she had to go to the bathroom.
After I saw the movie, as I’m sure almost all of my fellow teenager girls were, I was completely in love with Leonardo DiCaprio. One of my friends wore a necklace everyday that said “I <3 Leo” with the little letter squares from Claire’s. I had a couple of posters of Leo in my room and I got every teenybopper magazine I could find that had an article about him it in. I also got the “Titanic” Soundtrack for Christmas that year and was super pumped. Needless to say, I still enjoy seeing Leo’s movies, but now it’s because I think he’s a good actor and not because I have a massive crush on him.
Regardless of the fact that I am now almost 30 and no longer in love with Leo, I still want to see Titanic in 3D. How many of you out there are with me?
It’s here folks! Sony has officially released the teaser for the official trailer that will premiere this Sunday, April 1st (and no, it’s not an April Fool’s joke) of the new “Total Recall” movie! I don’t know about you, but the majority of yours truly here at Crazy Dog are pretty big fans of the original movie. I mean come on, who doesn’t love a little Arnold action? Actually, our owners REALLY love Arnold…just last week we had a new addition to our warehouse…a Terminator 2 arcade game. Yeah, we’re talking the real thing. It’s okay to be jealous!
Anyway, back to “Total Recall“. It appears the main difference between the two movies, besides of course the fact that the new one will have no Arnold, is that the new one takes place on a futuristic Earth, where the original takes place on Mars. Since they take place in different locations can this be called a remake? Regardless, I am pretty excited to see the new one. Check out the teaser trailer below.
As I said in Thursday’s post, not only did I see “The Hunger Games” this weekend, but I even saw it in IMAX. Let me just say, WOW! I thought the movie was incredible and was by far one of the best book to movie adaptations I’ve ever seen, as it followed the book very closely. The cinematography was also awesome, showing different parts of the movie from different character’s perspectives. I also think the casting was done very well. As first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the guy that was cast to play Peeta, but he grew on me throughout the movie and I really liked him by the end. I highly recommend going to see this movie, even if you haven’t had the chance to read the book yet. According to the below article from TheHollywoodGossip.com, we over here at Crazy Dog weren’t the only people in line to see the movie this weekend!
The Hunger Games Earns Third-Biggest Opening of All Time
March 25th, 2012 3:27 PM by Hilton Hater
The world was most definitely watching.
Following astounding takes at both midnight showings and overall on opening day, The Hunger Games has shocked even its most ardent followers by earning $155 million between Friday and Sunday, the third biggest opening of all-time in Hollywood.
“It was the perfect storm. Having the first film in a franchise to be so gigantic is amazing. We had a great book and a great director in Gary Ross,” said Lionsgate president of marketing Tim Palen.
Last year, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 set the mark for best debut with $169.2 million; while The Dark Knight took in $158.4 million in 2008.
But The Hunger Games is now the record-holder for opening weekends in terms of non-summer films and non-sequels. It shot past Spider-Man 3 ($151.1 million in 2007), The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($142.8 million in 2009) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 ($138.1 million last year) late on Saturday.
Yes, Katniss Everdeen may be The Girl on Fire. But she’s also starring in The Movie on Fire, that’s for sure. Here’s a look at the top 10 box office results from an incredible weekend:
- The Hunger Games: $155 million.
- 21 Jump Street: $21.3 million.
- Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax: $13.1 million
- John Carter: $5 million
- Act of Valor: $2.1 million
- Project X: $1.95 million
- A Thousand Words: $1.93 million
- Safe House: $1.39 million
- Journey 2: The Mysterious Island: $1.37 million
- Casa de Mi Padre: $1.1 million
“The Hunger Games” opens tonight at midnight! How excited are you?!?! I’m just a little excited if you haven’t been able to tell by my recent posts. I’m seeing it tomorrow at 7 in IMAX with a bunch of my friends and my Crazy Dog co-workers. We’re planning to get there super early so we have a chance of all sitting together, or at the very least, so we don’t have to sit in the front row. I wanted to see it at midnight, but decided that since that’s about an hour past my normal bedtime, I probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much because I’d be too tired. I can’t wait to see how they portray the end scene where the Hunger Games gets down to only having two people left. (Obviously I’m being cryptic as to not spoil the end for all of you slackers out there who haven’t read the book yet). I hope the movie is as good as all of us here at Crazy Dog are anticipating it will be!
Ahead of the Friday release of “Casa De Mi Padre,” Will Ferrell appeared as a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday night. The catch? Kimmel conducted the entire interview in Spanish. Ferrell made a grand entrance to the show, arriving atop a fake horse pulled by two half-naked cowboys.
The pair then went on to, as Kimmel put it, “confuse, disappoint and possibly offend much of our Latino audience.” Watch part one of the interview above, and check out parts two and three below, which include a cameo from Ferrell’s co-star Diego Luna.
