Films Reviewed: Harold and Kumar go to White Castle and The Bourne Supremacy

Commentary: The lack of movie theater etiquette today

Featurette: The White Castle Hall of Fame

Regarding Harold and Kumar go to White Castle:

Matt: You know?  For a stoner comedy, this is actually a toke or two above par.  Albeit a comedy, it was refreshing to see minorities in a lead role.  The supporting cast, especially a self-mocking Neil Patrick Harris, was on target as well.  This really has been a good summer for comedies.  Three stars.

Aron: The movie is funny, I'll give you that.  But be forewarned: after you see this film, you will be in the mood for White Castle!  Unfortunately, it does not exist in Atlanta, so you will have to make do with Krystal.  Still, the movie is worth seeing.  Hard to believe this came from the same person that made Dude, Where's my Car?  Three stars.

Average Rating: *** (out of ****)

Regarding The Bourne Supremacy:

Aron: A serviceable thriller, much like The Bourne Identity.  It gets three stars just for simply working.  

Matt: I have to concur with Aron here.  Matt Damon continues to make the role of Jason Bourne his own.  Three stars

Average Rating: *** (out of ****)

Commentary: Once again, Matt and Aron discussed what has been happening in movie theater audiences.  Or, more to the point, Matt and Aron demonstrated what they've been seeing in movie theater audiences: talking on cell phones, LCD displays on cell phones, talking during the movie, screaming children (played by Julian and Ivy Goggans), etc.  Once again, please find the manager if you experience any of this behavior.

Featurette: The White Castle Hall of Fame, in conjunction with our first review of the evening.

Special thanks to Grant Goggans for allowing the use of their children, whom are the two most well behaved movie going children we know, and Bette Goggans for stage mom duties.
