Badurday- March 30, 2013- Nicholas Hoult

I’m planning to hit the movie theatre this afternoon to see Jack and the Giant Slayer. This film looks like a lot of fun and I’m sure in the mood for some fun! The young man who stars in it first came to our attention in a Hugh Grant movie called About a Boy. He was the boy of the title. He’s all grown up now and quite a compelling actor. I saw him in Warm Bodies and he did a bang up job. I’m sure he’s going to be fantastic in this film, too. He fits in as a bad boy since the Jack in this film appears to be bad and tough and ready to slay some giants to rescue a fair maiden among others. His name? Nicholas Hoult. Watch for him. I predict he’s going to be a big star. This flick should be a great, mindless escape.

Badurday- March 16, 2013- Michael Collins

Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I’m planning to watch one of my all time favorite Irish movies, Michael Collins. That man was truly what I would call one of my bad boys. He was strong, full of conviction and even though he was hated by the British, he did what he needed to do to stand up for what he believed even to the point of dying for those beliefs. This movie somewhat romanticizes what happened in the fight for Irish independence but it’s a good film. I love the way the cast relates to each other and the scenery and cinematography are superb. It doesn’t hurt that Alan Rickman, Aiden Quinn and Liam Neeson are easy on the eyes, too. Enjoy the day, drink a toast to your favorite Irishman and watch a flick.

Happy Birthday to My Favorite Bad Boy- February 23, 2013- Badurday

This week was the birthday of Alan Rickman. As anyone who reads this blog knows, I adore him. He’s versatile and plays all his roles with a singular goal of doing the best work that he can do. He’s utterly charming in his interviews and I admire the way he endeavors never to give a spoiler for any of his films in these interviews. Here’s a poem to celebrate. Here’s to many more birthdays for this man and many more years of work and entertainment for us, the masses.

Badurday – February 16, 2013- The A-Team

Decided to go back to an old favorite since I watched it with my son last night. This movie is just a fun romp all the way around. I sure wish they’d make another one. It doesn’t hurt that there’s all kinds of handsome guys running around on screen either. From the good guys to the bad guys, there seems to be no end to the hotness. Enjoy the trailer and check it out if you haven’t seen it. If you have, watch it again. It’s a kick.

Badurday – January 12, 2013- Jeremy Renner

I love Mr. Renner. He’s been in some fantastic movies lately. He can really rock a white button-front shirt, can’t he? He wore one in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol to great effect. He was also hot, hot in The Avengers as Hawkeye. What a fab forearm he has. I’ve always had a weakness for a man with a strong thigh and a nice forearm and Mr. Renner fits both requirements. This next movie he’s going to be in will be super-fun, I think. Here’s the trailer for it!
