With Honors

    Years Ago I thought of Different Sort Of Psychology.  Now I’m Not A Major in anything. But I had This Idea that if you took an honest look at your Top 5 Favorite movies, it would tell you something about yourself.  So I have decided to review my Top 5 movies.  Starting with number 5.  With Honors. For more on the Movie  watch the Trailer .  First of all, Many People might start running for the doors when they see Brendon Frasiers name.  I personally Like him, But with Dudley Do Right, George of the Jungle,  Encino Man,  and the Mummy 3 Under his Belt. He Does have a History of  Bad Movies.  So here’s one You may not have heard of.  Released in 1994,  also Starring Joe Pecsi, who is about to give his most memorable performances.  A Supporting Cast that is Second To none.  Patrick Dempsey,   Not Looking so McDreamy here, as a Lay about Disc Jockey, who’s enjoying the Finer things about College life. You know Like partying and Getting Laid.  Also Starring Someone who Will pop up once more in my top 5,  The Moira Kelly.  The Epitome of My Dream girl.  Strong, Snarky, Crass, and the Love interest of Brendon’s in this movie although she is more than that.   I guess If you watched the Trailer, I don’t have to bore you with the Synopsis.  So I’ll Just Give My Impression.   The Movie is about Helping one Grow,  When We first meet Monty(Frasier)  he’s the typical Rich Kid you love to hate.   Simon(Pecsi)  looks Nothing like Joe Pesci. With his Long Hair and Beard.  He is Quick witted and Extremely Intelligent.  As someone living in the Boiler room of a Library should be.  After the Initial Awkwardness of the Characters,  something more than Just a Friendship is being Played out. And Monty wants to Help Simon, but Eventually its Simon Who Helps and teaches Monty.   I don’t think I have to give this Movie a Thumbs Up If its My 5th  Favourite Movie.  So if you have nothing to do  and are looking for a movie to Watch . With honors is Decent  Flick.

Stay Hungry (1976)

At a Giant Tiger…sorry GT Express. Wrestlemania Weekend.  I always enjoy looking at the Cheap Movies.  Some are Bad Movies. Witch you hope are bad, and Others are Hidden Gems.  I see Arnold Schwarzenegger.  I better look at this one.Stay Hungry  Also Starring  Jeff Bridges(Bonus),  and Sally Field.  Well 2 good Actors and Arnold. Also Its From 1976, this Mite Just Be Arnolds First movie.  Pumping Iron He Played Himself so That Don’t count. Lets Have a Look.  Well First of all I notice Robert Englund Squeky Voiced Little Gym Dweeb,  Apparently He’s Joe Santos’s Oil Boy…Oh Santos is Arnolds Character.  Yeah He Looks Like a Santos.  I should Mention this is Based On the Book of the same Name written By Charles Gaines.  First thing  I Notice When I put the DVD in is there's a Features Section. Not Even Special Features. Just Features.  There is a Commentary Option By the Director and Field and Bridges.  Right away I have a good Feeling about this Movie.  Both have Won  Oscars,  although Jeff’s not til Recently.  He’s Been Nominated  about 6 times.  I gotta Honestly Say I am a Jeff Bridges, Mark, or Fan.  Ever Since The Fisher King.  So For the 2 of them to actually Do a commentary Years later.  I think they Must Be Proud of this Movie.   I Guess I should Also Mention that this Movie was Nominated and Won For  2 Golden Globes.  Best Comedy Adapted from Another Medium, Both Charles Gaines and Director  Bob Rafelson, we’re Nominated.  And  the Golden Globe  goes to  Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the Category of Best Acting Debut in a Motion Picture - Male.   Wow How Bout that.  Arnold award winning actor.  The First Time We See Arnold, He’s Lifting Weights With a Cape and a mask.  He later Says Its just cause its Funny.  It is a Heart Warming Tale,  Arnold Is Very Watchable in this Movie,  and Doesn’t  Remind me  at all Of the Arnold we all make Fun of.  And Yet Here He is Playing a Bodybuilder.  His Natural Charisma, and Charm are on Fell Display.  But He Isn’t the Star. This If defiantly about Bridges and Field.  And There On-screen Chemistry is Real Apparent,  and Seems Real Authentic.  I guess I Found A Gem, Not a Lemon,  I defiantly Recommend this Movie,  To anyone Who Enjoys a Good Love Story,  and The South.
