When the lights go off the battle is on! So it goes with the second installment of the tale of Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), a night guard for the Museum of Natural History in NYC, or so it seems. Things have taken off for Larry as he is now an inventor, and is making a big name fore himself in the infomercial game. He is pushing small items that have some practical uses, and is becoming quite successful. One day, he makes his way to the museum to see his nighttime friends, only to learn that the place is going high tech with electronic interactive exhibits, and that some of the older pieces are being sent to Washington D.C. They are to be stored at the Federal Archives at the Smithsonian Institute. Read more... (509 words, 90 images, estimated 2:02 mins reading time)
This movie never won an Oscar for anything, will never be listed in the AFI top 100 of anything, but it is full of fun, cute, and funny, and tops the list of my all time favourites. There are many reasons why, but I don’t think I can list them all here. Could be the story of a confused loser who finds a different kind of success in an unusual place. Could be all the historical figures interacting with this one night guard who thinks he can get the best of them after learning a little bit about them, but they still turn the tables on him. It could be the great finale featuring the Earth, Wind, & Fire music. Let’s get a quick summary. Oddly, when I was in 4th grade, every time we watched some kind of movie in school, the teacher would make us write a summary/essay on what we saw. I really hated it then, but it’s different when you do it for movies you like, the movies you want to watch, not the ones you have to watch. Read more...

Welcome to Champion City, an atypical backdrop for this movie based on the Dark Horse Comic series of the same name. This story focuses on underdog superheroes that fight for justice, but never get the spotlight. This time the team of The Shoveler (William H. Macy), Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller), and Blue Raja (Hank Azaria) are on the scene when the Red Eye gang attempts a robbery at a grand ball in a nursing home. Even for a villainous gang, this robbery seems lame, but the trio takes on the bad guys with little success, but they are upstaged when the town’s most celebrated superhero, Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) comes in to save the day. Little does the trio know that the good Captain is not all about justice these days, but trying to save his image. The Red Eye Gang robbery is a setup by Amazing and his publicist to gain some new publicity. Shoveler, Raja, and Furious encounter Dr. Heller, a weapons developer who says he can up their game with his inventions. He is tired of seeing the misfits doing all the work while guys like Amazing get all the credit. The trio is polite, but regard Heller as a hack. They go to their favorite diner to reflect on the night’s happenings, and still can’t figure out how Amazing still manages to do the things he does. Read more...
