Night At the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

“Night At The Museum: Secret of The Tomb” was more like “Chaos and Confusion at the Museum”.

Larry (Ben Stiller) embarks on a wild night-time epic adventure to try and save the magic before it’s too late.

There were a few funny, crazy scenes, some great music and it was great to see a lot of the familiar museum pieces from the previous installments and there are even a few new pieces, but this installment is clearly lacking and disjointed.

I am sure the stars had fun making this film, but it’s time for the museum pieces to go back to the “Still Life”.
The magic has clearly run its course.

This is a 2 Star Movie!

Lee Daniels ‘ The Butler

Based on a true story, Lee Daniels’ The Butler tells the story of a White House Butler who served eight American Presidents over a 30+ year period.

The story is excellently told and very well depicted. The movie at times is very emotional, but none the less it’s very good. It will hold your attention.

If you can tolerate the reenactment of 1926 thru the late sixties and how African American people were treated during this time period, then by all means do see “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”. There is a star studded cast that portrays history beautifully.

The Big Wedding

I love all of the actors who were in “The Big Wedding”, but this is the worst screw-ball comedy I have ever seen in my life.

“The Big Wedding” is about a modern Dysfunctional family with grown children attempts to survive a weekend as a normal family hosting a wedding and reception.

A divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (DeNiro and Keaton) are placed in an awkward position when they need to “Fake” that they are still married for the benefit of their adopted son’s wedding when they find out that his conservative biological Mother decides at the last minute to fly across the country to attend the wedding. The story unfolds from there…

The movie is hilarious and stupid at the same time. There are at least 5 stories going on simultaneously in the movie. Each family member has his or her own drama that unfolds during this particular weekend.

The movie is crass and crude to say the least. The characters are never fully developed and that’s what makes the movie difficult to watch. I am disappointed I expected better.

“The Big Wedding” was originally scheduled to open in late 2012. The delay until April 2013 did not help it.
I would not spend any money seeing “The Big Wedding” unless you are bored and have nothing else to do. Wait for Blue Ray, DVD or Cable.
