30 Minutes or Less:
It has been a while since my last blog because of some personal issues, but I have finally found some time to review a movie I recently watched. As you can see from the title, it is 30 minutes or less. It is about a pizza delivery guy (Jesse Eisenberg) that gets into some trouble when bomb gets strapped to his chest and his only way of getting it off safely is to come up with $100,000.00. When I first heard about the plot of the movie I was excited. It has one of my favorite actors Danny McBride, who I think is way underrated, and it was also directed by Ruben Fleischer. For those of you who don't know who Ruben Fleischer, he only directed one of the best movies of all time, Zombie Land. For those of you that haven't seen it, drop what ever you are doing and go buy it directly. Even with Danny and Ruben having their involvement in the movie, I knew better than to set my hopes up really high for the movie. Just because Nick Swardson is in it. He is just an actor I can't seem to find a reason to like. Nothing he has ever done has even come close to making me laugh and that is extremely hard to do. Okay, time to stop the complaining about Nick and get to the movie. The movie starts off showing a toking pizza deliverer that seems to of been inspired by the game taxi way to much. On the dash you see a clock ticking down which is the time he has to deliver the pizza or it becomes free. Talented as he is, it seems not every delivery can be on time every time which means he has to come up with some clever ways to cover the cost of the pizza. This is displayed in the beginning that ends with a crowd pleasing joke. Pretty much the next 40 minutes of the movie are fillers to let us know how everyone ended up to their current situation which has a lot one liners that eventually build into a fight between two best friends. It eventually becomes apparent to Danny McBride that he cant rely on his father no more so decides to take matters into his own hands. Which leads them to Strapping a bomb on Jesse. The rest of the movie is crammed full of action and scenes and to talk about them in any detail would probably spoil the majority of the movie. Because of that I will end here and say that I enjoyed the movie a lot, but I don't think its worth the 8 bucks to watch. I would suggest watching it during a matinee like I did.
Below I added a choice for you guys to vote one which includes the one I will click 'wait for matinee'. As always feel free to comment and tell me what you think regardless good or bad. Also, if there are any movies in theaters or just a random movie you think I should check out and do a review on, please feel free to post them.
