Keanu Reeves is Immortal

Happy Friday! While you're enjoying your long weekend, mull over Keanu Reeves always youthful appearance and what it could really mean once you go through history for support.


Machete vs. Going The Distance: Which Will You See?

Two very different movies are out this weekend, appealing to entirely different demographics and tastes. Watch the trailers below and let me know which one you're going to check out this weekend!


With big name talent like Steven Seagal and Robert Di Niro, this throw back to the days of blacksploitation and b-movie action flicks has a higher pedigree than one would expect. Filled with guns, blood, and a healthy helping of sexy ladies barely clothed this is sure to play well to those who enjoyed The Expendables and Piranha 3D.

Going the Distance

While this may seem like an ordinary romantic-comedy (rom-com), the fact that Charlie Day and Jason Sudekis are supporting characters make me thing this will put the Comedy back in that equation more than previous films in this genre. Justin Long and Drew Barrymore may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I feel like this type of love story is becoming more and more common in our technology infused world. I know many people, myself included, that have done the long distance relationship thing with the help of skype and the overall connectedness that the internet and telephone allow. Never before would so many long distance couples be able to thrive like we can today. 

I'm going to try to catch both at some point. Which one will you be seeing? Or will you use this long weekend to catch some great all-day marathons on cable instead?
