@AdamSandler – Funny or OverRated?

August 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Adam Sandler
Funny or Overrated?

It comes up a lot in discussions when discussing an Adam Sandler movie whether or not he is funny or if he is overrated. I personally enjoy watching about 95% percent of the movies that he has done, and also the albums that he has.

I like the fact that in the majority of his movies you see a lot of familiar faces, which I think, helps with the comedic standpoint. When you work with the same group of people, friends, that are all in the same genre of movies it helps build the characters. I use to think that a lot of his movies were geared towards kids, but just the other day I watched Funny People and there it was, Sandler with hooking up with girls and boobs flopping across the screen. Other then that movie I find a lot of them to have humor.

So I will go with saying I do feel Adam Sandler is funny and will not go with overrated. I think he has built himself up so much with great movies in the start that people just aspects the next one to be just as funny or if not funnier.

So what do you think? Is Adam funny or overrated?

Batman “The Dark Knight Rises” – ROAD TRIP

August 7, 2011 1 comment

Wow what an incredible weekend I had…. I must say, as my 3rd on set movie, this was by far the best one and cannot wait till Summer 2012 to see the final product.

The road trip to Pittsburgh, PA started Friday, August 5th at 5:30pm.

08/05/11 - 8:10PM WethersField, CT

Around 7pm we got off the highway to grab dinner and stumbled upon a car show in WethersField, CT. Had some pretty nice cars and alot more then the ones on the Lowell Boulevard. After the pittstop we finished our trip to Pittsburgh, PA only making stops for gas. We reached Pittsburgh by 5:30am on Saturday, August 6th (At which I now have been awake for 24hours). We drove around Pittsburgh for about 45 minutes to try and find a breakfast place and a bathroom to change at which we had no luck. We ended up parking on a side street next to the Hospital in the area to change. We then headed over to the Big Crowd parking lot where they had the “Bat-Shuttle” aKa School Bus picked us up and brought us over to the set.

08/06/11 - 6:20am Heinz Field

Once we arrived to the Field they had the check-in tables and also 5 Hour Energy crew handing out free shots (MUCH NEEDED). As we walked into the Field they had goodie bags that they handed to everyone which contained a Gold Bandana, Ear Plugs, Sunscreen, Breakfast Bar & Water. This was my first time in Heinz Field, and as it is not as nice as our Gillette Stadium it was pretty cool to get to check out.

08/06/11 - 9:08am Inside Heinz Field

Now to the FUN STUFF!!! Once we got into the seats, we got to see what will become the Gotham Rogues Football Field!!! With luck on their side, it just so happens that the Pittsburgh and Gotham are Black & Yellow. First thing they filmed was C.J. Coyne singing the National Anthem which took about 5-6 takes. After that we got to see 1 play, a KICKOFF. Now when this movie comes out even though the Jerseys were Gotham Rogue jerseys, you might notice some of the names on the back of the jerseys, their numbers and some of the faces. Why? Well they just so happen to be some of the Pittsburgh Steelers players. Some of the players you may notice is: #7 – Ben Roethlisberger, #86 – Hines Ward, #17 – Mike Wallace, and a few others. Their coaches consisted of Bill Cowher, Kevin Colbert, Kelvin Fisher, Omar Kahn, Bruce McNorton, Dan Prunzik & Matt Smith. This one play took major of the morning/afternoon.

08/06/11 - 10:24am Working on KICKOFF

The BIG SCENE that we all were waiting for was the scene that required those Ear Plugs they provided us… Thats right the special effects, THE EXPLOSION!!!! This scene took about 3 hours to work on and dragged while we waited for the explosion. It was one of those scenes that their 60 explosives could only be done once so alot of practice was done to make it perfect. In between takes they raffled off alot of prizes which 1 I just so happened to win… a GOTHAM ROGUES T-SHIRT w/ LOGO!!! Thats right a shirt that you might see in stores in Summer 2012 after the movie comes out or maybe you wont see them.. but fact is I HAVE ONE!!!

All in All this was a great experience… the one downfall was the HEAT and the scene takes place in the “WINTER” so we had to wear jeans and jackets… This blog will remain private and password protected. If you share photos you are sharing them at your OWN RISK. Left Pittsburgh around 4:30pm on Saturday and got back home a little before 7:00am as we took a few nap breaks (This blog is being typed at hour 59!!! napped a total of 5 hours over the ride home). So with that said heres the rest of the photos.

08/06/11 - The Tumblers (Bane stole from BATMAN)

08/06/11 - 1:56PM Explosions all Setup

08/06/11 - 3:45PM After the Explosion (In the movie this is when the field rises)

#TDKR in Pittsburgh, PA This Weekend

Filming August 6th, 2011

Off to Pittsburgh (approx 10hour drive) to be an extra in the upcoming Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. I cannot wait to be on set as I know this will be probably the best set I get to be on. I want to thanks BeInAMovie.com for this great opportunity. This will be my 3rd extra role, but my second with the @BeInAMovie Crew.

Heinz Field

Looks like I will be heading to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh for a “Gotham City” football game. From my understanding this is going to be a HUGE scene with alot of people. Not sure if I will be getting noticed or not in this scene but just going to be a great experience. Also we were told there may be a little A.M. showers but thats fine by me.

 

 

Batman (left) - Bane (right)

Hopefully we get to see some of the main characters in action like Batman (Christian Bale), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) & Bane (Tom Hardy). It will be great to see the Costumes in person and that fantastic Bat-Mobile.

I will be tweeting throughout my trip as we make our way down to Pittsburgh, PA. Please follow me on Twitter (@SGiuffreJR) if you would like to follow the tweets.

Final Season of #Entourage… Episode 2 Review

August 1, 2011 Leave a comment

Looks like this season is going to be getting good. Ari’s wife is dating a Chef, Turtle may be breaking up with his model GF, E gets one more “hookup” with Sloan before she leaves for New York, Drama’s Cartoon show is looking to be a hit and besides for finding out his grammer sucks and can’t write a script, there wasn’t much for Vince in this episode.

The disappointment I think in this is the fact that Sloan is leaving for New York!!! Let’s face it she will be well missed if she really does take off. If you are not a fan of the show or just started watching this season, here is a little info on Sloan McQuewick:

Sloan McQuewick, is the daughter of Terrance (Ari’s former partner and boss at the agency). Since Season 2 of the Entourage Sloan and E (Eric) have been involved in a off and on romantic relationship. At the end of Season 6, E proposed to Sloan & she accepted. However in the last Episode she has returned the ring. We learn in Season 8.2 that she is planning to move to New York.

Sloan McQuewick is played by Emmanuelle Sophie Anne Chriqui, a Canadian actress. Chriqui was born December 10th, 1977 and is best known for her role on the Entourage and as Adam Sandlers love interest in the movie You Don’t Mess with Zohan.

Please feel free to share your Season 8, Episode 2 thoughts.

Final Season of #Entourage… Episode 1 Review

July 25, 2011 1 comment

Why Hello Again….

I set my DVR last night to record the first episode of the last season of ENTOURAGE… And not going to lie, wasn’t to impressed with the first episode. Lets face it… ENTOURAGE was all about the “partying” and “clubing”, all the crazy parties and they start the season off with a “SOBER PARTY”. I sure do they pick this last season up and make it more entertaining and less “DRAMA”.

What Did you think of the first episode?

Will it still be Two and a Half Men?

July 20, 2011 1 comment

Well looks like the debut of Season 9 of “Two and a Half Men” will be on September 19th, 2011!!!! Who will be watching this season? I know I will need to atleast watch the first episode to see if it matches up to its hype. For those who don’t know why this season is going to be different from any other season, well its major charactor Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is no longer on the show. At first there was talk on who will replace Sheen and will they play the role of Charlie Harper or will they play in a new role.

From the looks of imdb.com it looks as they will be creating a new role for Ashton Kutcher to play (Raymond). How will they go about this? I have no idea. Tried to do some looking around to see if they have a synopsis for this season but there is currently nothing that I can find. So if you know something I don’t please feel free to share.

Angus T. Jones - Ashton Kutcher - Jon Cryer

All in all I am looking for feedback on peoples thoughts of this upcoming season… Charlie Sheen obviously does not have hope for this season.

I am thinking that if they play in the new role of Ashton Kutcher properly then this season can be just as hilarious as the previous ones.
