Weekend Coffee Share and Movie Review

 

coffeeshare

If you’ll click the coffee cup above you’ll be taken to a place where you can find new blogists (is that a word?) who take part in this weekly thing called weekend coffee share. It’s a place where we can have a little fun and share a bit about our week

It was started by Part-Time Monster a while back and there are plenty of us who do it, some more than others, some less (ahem…me…ahem) but it’s a way to connect, have fun and maybe find something new to read.

If we were having coffee on this HOT, sunny Sunday morning I would let y’all know that I am not impressed with last week’s humidity or what’s supposed to be coming this week, although I am very thankful it broke for yesterday.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I got to meet one of my Facebook friends for the first time last night. She was totally awesome and I’m looking forward to another movie night!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that we went to see Tarzan last night.

I was totally jazzed, mostly because I was meeting someone new but also I was going to the first movie in a long while AND it starred Alexander Skarsgard (sorry for the misspelling, I don’t have the Swedish keyboard setting), Margot Robbie and Samuel L. Jackson.

It seemed like Robbie and Jackson did the acting while Skarsgard provided the comedic relief and the eye candy.

You know those Tarzan reviews out there? The ones talking about his abs and lack of shirt for 2/3 of the movie and the fact his long johns sat way down over his hips? (Can we say ‘V’ boys and girls? A little further south of the border and we might have got what we paid for.) They’re all extremely accurate.

I watch a movie for the entertainment value so when I notice inconsistencies you know that, aside from spending FAR too much time with my boyfriend, it wasn’t a great movie. Unfortunately, it was utterly and achingly forgettable for me.

Funny thing: They tried, tried, to imitate the Tarzan yell. It sounded more like Samuel L. Jackson yelling because he was frustrated because he couldn’t keep up with Tarzan. Or a hippopotamus mating call.

Now, how was your week?

  1. So fun that you met someone new that you’ve been conversing with, I assume, on Facebook. Sorry the movie wasn’t good. I’ve never been a Tarzan fan, so I wasn’t going to see it, but I hoped it would be a good take on the story for those who do. I hate when movie makers do remakes but don’t give the story its justice.

    1. Thanks.
      Yes, she’s from Facebook.
      Apparently there are a lot of remakes coming, like Frankenstein, The Mummy, and others. Hopefully they’ll do a much better job.
      Tarzan was almost like they hired Alexander on simply for the name even though there were other big names as well.
      I went mostly for the eye candy but I’m not quite sure it was worth the $14 of admission since I was also hoping there would be a story in there somewhere. A FULL story, with plot line, sub plots with seriousness, fun and other stuff thrown into the mix.
      Maybe next time.
