I’ve always found that I have to understand what other people think are good movies to know how to ‘read’ their reviews. Just because someone says one movie is a must see, you have to know what else they put into that category so you know if you really have to see what they are recommending. So here is some of my favorite movies, I really can’t put them in order other than the first is my all time favorite, but the others are up there, just no great enough to dethrone the top. I’ve also included the link to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) so you can read up, Trailer links to YouTube of the preview of the movie!

Without further ado! My picks

Keeping with yesterdays post of what I’m looking forward to in the theaters, Sucker Punch (March 25). Here’s the most recent trailer:

Sucker Punch is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and has an ensemble cast including Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. I really enjoy Snyders sytle and tone in his films, I might be in the minority but I really enjoyed Watchmen (changing the ending aside) the action in this movies looks to be amazing. I’m easy to please when it comes to movies I look for entertainment value and if it lets me escape into the film. This film may not end up with any nominations for best actor or actress but as long as the acting isn’t bad enough to take away from the story and the action, it’ll be a fun ride.

I’m working on a post for this weekend of my top movies so everyone can get a better idea about my tastes.

One of my favorite ways to zone out is to jump into a movie for 90+ minutes. I’m so looking forward to Hanna, scheduled to hit April 8th, it’s easily my flick I’m looking forward to most in the near future (ignoring the slate of summer flix we’re getting this year) to give you a taste if you’re not familiar with the title here is the trailer:

Makes me drool for the soundtrack like when the first tracks from Daft Punk’s ‘Tron Legacy’ score hit, I was also impressed with Trent Reznor’s score for ‘The Social Network‘ I’m really looking forward to The Chemical Brothers score on this flick. Here is a short clip released today of the film that does a great job at highlighting that track.

Anyone else as psyched about this action flick?

Well I’m a technical person, but I’ve never worked with WordPress before, it’s quite unique. There still might be some minor changes in the blog but it’s starting to get to where I want it. Thank you to anyone who is reading this for keeping with the blog during it’s rebirth.

For those reading, please leave me a comment and let me know if there is something that you’d like to see here, or something that you don’t like as well, I can take it, I promise!

This is a blog where I can stretch my legs and relax. What is ‘Off-Focus’ well this site used to be my fathers, he passed away in September 2010 after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer. I’ll let his words explain what ‘Off-Focus’ is:

“All our adult lives we’re told to stay on track, to keep our eye on the prize and to focus in on what’s important. This site is where I can be off-focus and explore those things that maybe aren’t so unimportant after all”

So there you have it, I plan on using this space to expand on my interests in Technology, Entertainment, Sports and general wastes of time. I hope you enjoy what you read.
