    The Night Before 2015

    ★★★ Watched 09 Sep, 2016

    While watching the movie I kept wanting to hate it, but if I'm honest I laughed at quite a bit of it. What really make the movie is the cameos, especially Michael Shannon. I would have liked this movie more if it got rid of its "story" and"plot", that was when the movie dragged. This is the most I've laughed at Seth Rogen in quite a while. JGL was just a downer the whole time but that was his role. Decent flick.

    Was really surprised how much I loved this movie. The only Shane Black movie I've seen is Iron Man 3 and I don't love it so I didn't really have any expectations. Gosling and Crowe were great together. The story is entertaining, the chemistry between the characters is great and the humor was spot on. I really can't believe how much I laughed out loud. I don't think it did good enough in the theaters to get a sequel but I would watch that in an instant! Not a perfect movie but damn enjoyable.

    The only special skill Liam Neeson has in this picture is being awesome. This great, thrilling detective piece is intense from beginning to end. I wasn't sure how I felt initially about the young sidekick but I ended up loving young Detective Daunte Culpepper. Great flick all around.

    I had no real idea what I was getting into when I started this flick but I was completely engrossed. Great performances, neat ideas, and good direction really compels this movie forward. My only nit-pick would be I felt like I was a step ahead of the "reveals", I feel like the directors held our hands a bit or maybe I've seen enough time travel movies that it would take a lot to surprise me. Regardless I really enjoyed this flick a lot.
