"Politically provocative talk show host Bill Maher skewers the current state of organized religion in this documentary that derives its title from a blend of the words "religion" and "ridiculous." Making stops in Jerusalem, the Vatican and other holy destinations, Maher travels the world to talk to believers from a variety of faiths to find out why they're so sure their religion is right -- and why they're so certain others are wrong" courtesy of netflix

i loveeeeeeeed this movie. for me it was very educational, i was someone who was raised catholic, my whole family is catholic i have an Uncle in England who is a priest but for me it was something I never connected with and the past year especially i've been discovering and trying to find and understand religion and what my own personal belief is and my answer was always "i dont know" and thats what Bill Maher's answer is in this movie, and everyone he talks to and everything he says i'm just kicking myself i didnt say what he said when i've been in the same religious debates.

if you are someone who is truly religious and you have your faith packed down and won't take any another word, maybe its the movie for you, Maher doesnt go around saying your religion is wrong, he's just asking how do you know its right? and there are so many things that can contradict each other, that you should at least have a more open opinion on religion.

I ask my family that doesnt understand how i feel to watch this movie and i ask anyone who doesnt currently accept other religions to watch this movie, i think its very educated and i think its very thought provoking and i think Maher makes alot of really great intelligent points.

Breaking and Entering

"Anthony Minghella (Cold Mountain, The English Patient) directs this thinking-person's drama, weighing the difference between emotional and physical robbery. When his London office is burglarized by a young Muslim thief, an affluent architect (Jude Law) is forced to rethink his priorities and re-evaluate his life. The sterling cast includes Juliette Binoche, Robin Wright Penn, Ray Winstone and Martin Freeman ("The Office"). " Courtesy of Netflix

This movie is very slow, its kind of depressing and although I feel like I did maybe like it, I didn't really. I think i'm the kind of person who can always take something away from a movie so its hard for me to say I dont like one, buttt i wouldn't watch it again and I wouldn't recommned it to someone. alot of the movie doesnt make sense, well it makes sense but there are alot of loss ends and random little things going on and important details they don't elaborate on, like Jude Law's daughter and the relationship with...well i guess its his girlfriend. the whole movie you have this idea it's his wife but its not (that plays no important factor, i didnt ruin anything for you.) but it was just werid little factoids.

but of course, Jude Law plays his typical self in the movie, if you know what I mean. he is beautiful though. :)

My Best Friend's Girl

When Dustin's (Jason Biggs) girlfriend, Alexis (Kate Hudson), breaks up with him, he employs his best buddy, Tank (Dane Cook), to take her out on the worst rebound date imaginable in the hopes that it will send her running back into his arms. But when Tank begins to really fall for Alexis, Tank finds himself in an impossible position. Alex Baldwin and Lizzy Caplan star in this romantic comedy from director Howard Deutch. courtesy of netflix

I really liked this movie, it was really good, the basic plot itself is a little predictable but thats just the nature of the movie, i wouldnt call it a predictable movie because alot of stuff happens that you still wouldnt have guessed. I think Dane Cook is great in it, and they have soo many great shots of him, theres this one shot i love of him walking down the isle at this church smoking a ciggerette to a Johnny Cash song, and its just totally badass, and in my opinion not in a bad way (sometimes a movie tries to pull off badass and it doesnt work, but in this case it does!) you'll be entertained, you'll laugh, you'll be engaged.
