  • Lamar notes... It's a wonderful life!

    When I was trying to decide what movie to review this week there were a lot of possibilities. The problem was with all the controversy I had to be careful to pick one that wouldn’t upset North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. To be on the safe side I decided on It’s a Wonderful Life. In this entire movie there is no reference to North Korea or the Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army. Now just in case for some reason he finds offence with this movie or my review I want to remind him of something. Don’t confuse your people with our people. You have starved your people, they have no weapons, and you force them to worship you. In the great state of South Carolina we are overweight, heavily armed, and we love Jesus. So it’s probably best if you don’t roll up in here. Read More
  • Lamar reviews- The Hobbit-The battle of five armies

    It has taken 13 years, 6 movies, and over 17 hours of screen time for Peter Jackson to visually bring us Tolkien’s books. And he has done a fantastic job. Did the Hobbit need to be split between 3 films? We can argue that all day but one thing is for sure; it was profitable. Read More
  • Lamar reviews-Exodus: Gods and Kings

    We don’t have time to list all the mistakes made in making this movie but I’ll touch on a few. Read More
  • Lamar's holiday video review

    We are quickly approaching that time of the year when, because of the Holidays, we spend more family time together than normal. So Christmas winds up being a bunch of people, some of which we may not actually like, crammed into a limited amount of space during the most stressful time of the year. Christmas shopping, visiting family, and increased suicide. A coincidence? I think not Read More
  • Lamar reviews - Horrible Bosses 2

    I absolutely loved Horrible Bosses and I was so excited about this sequel. It is loaded with stars. Jason Bateman continues to be hilarious in every movie he’s in. Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are both very funny guys. Everybody except Todd loves Jennifer Anniston. I will say that again, just like the first Horrible Bosses, she uses some very unsavory language of a sexual nature to describe some over the top very kinky things. I cannot say that I approve of this type of behavior, but I’m working with it. I think when the DVD comes out and I can study some of these scenes 6 or 13 times like I did the original I will be better able to make a decision on just how I stand. Also returning is Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx. New to this one is Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz. Between Spacey, Foxx, and Waltz there are 5 Academy Awards between them. When you put all of this together it seems like you have to have a winner. Read More
