Have The Night Of Your Life With Robert Downey Jr.!

Avengers - Stark & Ultron

There’s this little movie coming out that you might have heard of – Marvel’s Avengers – Age of Ultron. Likewise, you might be familiar with the talented gentleman who plays Iron Man in the movie – Robert Downey Jr.

Here’s the thing: you could win the Night Of Your Life – and help out a great cause – by making a donation to Julia’s House, a hospice for terminally ill children.

What about that Night Of Your Life I mentioned, I hear you ask. How about a trip to Los Angeles for the premiere of that little movie I mentioned above? In the company of RDJ his own bad self? Plus a stay in a four star hotel, sky-diving, battle of wits with RDJ (he’s kidding, right? Right?) and more. Find out how to do that by following the jump.

Sheldon’s 2014 Fifteen (Plus Five) Movies!

01

After careful consideration – and with some trepidation – I’ve finally put together my final list of my favorite movies from 2014. It was the first time in a long while that I saw more than 200 movies and a lot of them were incredibly good (a lot were incredibly bad, or boring, but I’ve already dealt with those).

As usual, these are the films that got me laughing, crying, engaged in conversations and generally made my brain fizz in a good way. As usual, anyone who says it was a crap year for movies just wasn’t paying attention.

Also note that two movies – Selma and Boyhood (despite their importance in terms of history and/or unique concepts) did not make my favorites list – not because they were bad films. They were not. They were very, very good ones. They just didn’t connect with me as much as these twenty did.

So, hold your breath – here we go…

50shadesofgrey

I’m sorry, but I can’t get past the idea that 50 Shades of Grey started off as god awful pornographic Twilight fanfiction: no, really, you morons turned Twilight FANFICTION about Bella and Edward bondage into a worldwide phenomenon. Now because of all of you jag-offs, I’m going to have to live with this never-ending film franchise for the next four – five freaking years.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service Brings The Fun back to Spy Flicks!

kingsman

When a movie starts with an opening shot of a Helicopter battle with Dire Straight’s “Money of Nothing” playing over the opening credits, you know you are in for something a little different. One of my favorite Directors, Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Stardust) brings his unique sensibilities and a breath of fresh air to the stagnate Spy Genre, a genre that has been overly serious lately and in need of a kick-start. Yes, I hate the Daniel Craig Bond films. Kingsman: The Secret Service brought the fun and puns back, mixed with Vaughn’s trademarked over the top violence.
