Super Troopers (R)

This movie is amazing. Its crude but amazing. I loved this movie from the moment I watched it. Absolutely amazing.

What makes it so amazing, they have cop fighting about a "liter of cola" instead of a medium or large. Eating bars of soap. Good cop/bad cop things. Just over the top amazingness. There are all kinds of gags here and there, its just wonderful.

The plot? A bunch of Vermont cops are losing their jobs and they go undercover to figure out whats up. Its a gang of dirty cops vs. a group of dumb cops. If you haven't seen it and like crude (think South Park) style humor, you'll love this movie!

Surrogates (PG-13)

Surrogates is one of those movies that when I saw the trailer I thought "this looks interesting". It was. It was a decent movie. Thankfully to its credit it is only 90 minutes long, which suits the movie well.

The premise of the movie is that everyone uses a surrogate robot to interact in the world. The people who control them stay at home isolated and control the robots remotely. Stuff goes down and Bruce Willis' character has to go out as himself without a robot.

The premise was good enough, but the execution and storyline just didn't really carry me throughout the film. It starts off strong, but then kinda struggles to get through the second and third acts of the movie. Don't get me wrong, there is a "twist" ending, that you'll see from a mile away, but the ending is well done and might be worth the 90 minute wait just to watch how its done.
