Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Move over Ebert and Roeper.

Last night, TGIM and I saw a special Sneak Preview screening of The Island. Since I couldn't think of anything more intelligent to write on the survey than "Wow! A sizzling summer blockbuster that blows all other summer films out of the water!" (Hey! Performance anxiety can happen to anyone, okay?!), I will attempt to redeem myself by writing my very first "official" Movie Review by a Desperate Working Momma.

Oh. And no worries. This review contains absolutely no spoilers.

MOVIE: The Island
GRADE: B+

the island poster
(Oh my GAWSH! Look at her BOOBS in this poster! That shite ain't right!)

I mean, honestly. Who wouldn't want to be chosen in the lottery for an all-expense paid trip to The Island, reportedly the last uncontaminated spot on the planet? Well, as Lincoln Six-Echo and Jordan Two-Delta learn, certainly not them, that's who.

If you see this movie-- and dudes, you totally should-- be sure to pack the Depends, y'all, because there are so many jolts and exciting twists in this summer hit, you will more than likely piddle your pants a bit. Ewan McGregor (Lincoln Six-Echo) and Scarlett Johansson (Jordan Two-Delta) sizzle-- SIZZLE, I say!-- as a pair of human clones who don't know that every memory they have of their existence in their seemingly utopian society is a lie. Director Michael Bay (The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys) practically begs the audience for a willing suspension of disbelief, filling the screen with more explosions and miraculously close calls than a room full of prepubescent boys at Neverland, but you will find that you are more than happy to oblige him. The movie moves along at a breakneck pace, with a script chock full of heart-pounding action amidst clever jokes and quotable one-liners, not to mention the amazing musical score and jaw-dropping special effects, as Lincoln and Jordan each desperately race to meet their maker. No, literally.

All this makes the movie not only a brutal yet sexy action-adventure film, but a genuine summer blockbuster you will not want to miss.

Seriously. Just looking at them is worth the price of admission, you know what I'm sayin'? Oh, I think you DO.

Pretty.

Excellent review! Looks like a good one, but it probably won't get here for a bazillion years...well at least six months anyway.
