Fast Five Reveiw


It's hard to believe Fast Five made over $86m opening weekend, even more so that this series has lasted this long. If someone told me in 2001 this series would surpass a decade, I would have laughed in their face. Well, here we are… ten years later. What does that tell ya?

The fifth installment in the franchise brings together cast members from the first four movies, (which I thought was cool), and is headed by muscle man Vin Diesel, the car-crazed thief and pretty-boy Paul Walker, the lawman turned outlaw. As if there wasn’t enough testosterone in this high-octane, souped-up engine already; director, Justin Lin, (Fast & Furious, #4 and Tokyo Drift, #3) decided to throw in Dwayne Johnson for good measure.

It breaks down like this; Fast Five supposedly takes place before the third movie, but after the fourth. If that sounds like it’ll be a tricky movie to follow, don’t worry - it’s not. Why they decided to make it more confusing than needs be is beyond me. I don’t pretend to understand these movies, “bro,” but I have to admit they are one spectacle of fun and jazzy proportions, not to mention a huge Guilty Pleasure of mine. It's fantastically, awful movie-crack.

This time around we venture Rio de Janeiro, where the car chases and the action scenes increase considerably. Dwayne Johnson plays one
badass, over the top U.S. agent who’s hot on Diesel's trail, and before you know it the whole thing progresses to one of the silliest heists ever.
The film is definitely ridiculous, but somehow it works, just as long as you don’t dwell on such things like… If these guys are so broke, how can they afford all this expensive equipment to set up the heist? Why is Johnson glistening like he’s been greased up for a wrestling match? How did two cop cars rip out an entire bank safe with no explosives? There are so many plot holes to drive a semi through (which these characters could and would do without hesitation), but fortunately the action is well choreographed and intense enough to take your mind off such things.

I absolutely loved this movie! It’s definitely the best in the series, which isn't saying a whole lot. It’s big, loud, stupid... and embarrassingly fun. If you do see this movie, I’m sure you already know to wait until the end of the credits. There’s a little F&F morsel for y’all. Can’t wait for the Fast Six
RATING: B

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Trailer

Source: Yahoo

"Only I can live forever."

It's an end of an era. Warner Bros has debuted the official trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 after its world premiere during the ABC Family presentation of Happy Gilmore on TV tonight. We all know where this is headed, we've all seen the first half of the end. Now we get an incredible glimpse at the epic finale coming this summer. Get ready to hold your breath. This looks absolutely phenomenal! I have chills. Enjoy!


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is again directed by British filmmaker David Yates, of Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince previously. The script was also written again by Steve Kloves, of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, and also Half-Blood Prince, but not Order of the Phoenix. This is based on J.K. Rowling's very popular series of books which have already concluded. This movie hits theaters in 3D (what a surprise - rolls eyes) on July 15th, 2011. I'm really sad this series is finally coming to and end.

First Trailer for Immortals

Source: Yahoo

"The Gods chose well."

Relativity Media unleashed their latest trailer for Tarsem Singh's Immortals. If you were a fan of 300, you'll most likely enjoy this movie, as it has the same visual vibe. I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology, not to mention the lovely Henry Cavill (our latest Superman). Love him! Even though it has a sexy cast and looks visually stunning and beautiful, it also looks a tad hollow, empty and bleak, which is disappointing. So with that being said, I'm not terribly excited to see this. Of course I will, though, thanks in huge part to Henry Cavill who stars as Theseus. Anyway, take a look.



Immortals
follows the story of warrior prince Theseus as he leads men into battle against imprisoned titans in order to save mankind. It's over a $100 million epic and will be converted to 3D in post-production (which means I won't be seeing it in 3D at all). The screenplay was written by Charley Parlapanides & Vlas Parlapanides. This movie also stars: Mickey Rourke as the evil King Hyperion. Others include Luke Evans as Zeus (with the flaming whip), Isabel Lucas as Athena, Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, Stephen Dorff as Stavros, John Hurt as Old Zeus, Corey Sevier as Apollo and Freida Pinto. "The Gods are like superheroes in the film," Tarsem revealed previously. This movie hits theaters in (post-production) 3D (barf!) on November 11th, 2011.

What do you make of it?

The Most Famous Movie Scream Ever!

Source: SlashFilm

In light of Scre4m’s release a couple weeks ago, I found it appropriate to blog about the most famous scream of all – The Wilhelm Scream. If you've ever watched a science fiction, action, or horror movie, you have definitely heard it. I started paying attention to it more and more after my friend, Jason, pointed it out to me. I now hear it in almost every movie I see.
Despite its nickname, The Wilhelm Scream did not originally come from Wilhelm of The Charge at Feather River (although it was the first time it was repeated). Instead, it first screamed in an old Hollywood western, Distant Drums (1951).

So who was the man behind the famous scream? According to Star Wars IV: A New Hope sound editor Ben Burrt, who first nicknamed it the Wilhelm Scream, it is likely the voice of Sheb Wooley. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, you'll soon be enlightened as SlashFilm just released a new video compilation of nearly every instance this signature scream has been heard on film. Check it out and enjoy!




If it is indeed Sheb Wooley's voice,
he has provided a great treasure in pop culture.

Top 10 Badass Women in Film

It's time to indulge in a bit of female empowerment. While men are so often the leading candidates for badass heroes in films, women definitely have their share of butt-kicking screen time as well. And over the years, we’re seeing more and more strong female characters challenge gender roles by refusing to sit in the corner and just look pretty, electing instead, to kick a little ass and take down names. How does that saying go,… behaved women rarely make history?

While there are tons of examples to be had, the following top 10 are among my favorites in this estrogen-fueled badass department. Some of the characters below have appeared in multiple movies, but I only listed the films where I felt they were at their toughest. Take a look at the 10 most dangerous, toughest, badass women to appear on the silver screen - every one of which could render you a quivering, pile of mush.


Honorable Mentions:
Maggie (Bridget Fonda) – Point of No Return, 1992
Tank Girl (Lori Petty) - Tank Girl, 1995
Luz (Michelle Rodriguez) - Machete, 2010



10.
Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) – Kick Ass, 2010
Come on, it's pretty impressive watching a 12-year old kick some adult butt, taking on a hundred men at once, jabbing bad guys in the throat, blowing their heads off and swearing like a sailor... that's pretty badass! Chloe Moretz steals the show as Hit-Girl, the foul-mouthed minor makes good with knives, guns and grenades, in last year's film, Kick-Ass.

Best Line:"I'm just fu**ing with you Daddy! Look, I'd love a Benchmade model 42 butterfly knife."


9.
Catwoman (Michelle Phiffer) - Batman Returns, 1992
Ignoring the foul-smelling odor that Halle Berry left on the big screen in 2004, the definitive Catwoman is most definitely Michelle Pfeiffer! We already knew she was hot, but no one could have guessed that she would look that good in a leather cat-suit, and be able to over-power the men in the film with her feline ass-kicking throw-down.

Best Line: "As I was saying, I'm a woman & can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I."


8.
Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh) - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, 2000
Okay, honestly, it’s been a while since I’ve seen it, so I don’t remember much. But Michelle Yeoh always stuck with in my mind. Her fight scenes are incredible. For such violence, she holds so much grace, discipline, and concentration that she masters the craft beautifully. I wouldn't want to piss her off.

Best Line: "To repress one's feelings only makes them stronger."


7.
Miho (Devon Aoki) - Sin City, 2005
Deadly little Miho is a mute, so she lets her swords and shuriken do the talking. Nobody wants to get on Miho’s bad side, especially men. She’ll dispatch raiders and men alike with razor-sharp accuracy and kill you before you even realize you’ve been attacked, and it’s always going to be bloody.

Best Line: "..."


6.
Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) - The Matrix, 1999
Clad in latex and sporting shades and slicked-back hair, Trinity rarely smiles. This probably has something to do with the revelation that the so-called “real” world is nothing more than a sophisticated virtual reality created by humanity’s mechanical overlords. But that doesn’t stop this ultra-cool heroine from carrying on the revolution, and she’s perfectly content to team up with Neo (Keanu Reeves) and go on a gun-toting rampage in an office building. Whether you need a helicopter flown or someone to look really stylish while running up the wall in slow-mo, Trinity is your gal.

Best Line: “Dodge this.”


5.
Alice (Mila Jovovich) – Resident Evil, 2002
A genetic alteration gave Alice advanced strength and speed, giving her the ability to fight numerous foes at once. It wasn’t until later in these series of movies that Alice evolved into a complete bad ass, developing telekinesis and psychic abilities to go with her already increased physical abilities.

Best Line: “Is that any way to treat a lady?”


4.
Fox (Angelina Jolie) - Wanted, 2008
Part of a secret order of assassins, the badass Fox has the ability to curve bullets and drive cars like Richard Petty on steroids. Tasked with helping nine-to-fiver, Wesley Gibson realize his birthright as an enlightened killer, she engages in a series of running shootouts, shows off her multiple tattoos, and demonstrates a dedication to fate that’s more than a little fanatical. We should all have a mentor this cool.

Best Line: “Your father was one of the greatest assassins who ever lived. The man who killed him is behind you.”


3.
Beatrix Kiddo - The Bride (Uma Thurman) – Kill Bill 2003
Uma unleashed her badass side and we all thanked Tarantino for it. As the multi-named heroine done wrong by her assassin ex-colleagues, Uma spent two entire films getting her own back. Blood was shed. Bodies fell. Daryl Hannah lost an eye. In Kill Bill Parts 1 and 2, Uma Thurman fought her way to the top of Hollywood's deadliest women. I wouldn't want to get on her bad side.

Best Line: "I am gonna ask you questions. And every time you don't give me answers, I'm gonna cut something off. And I promise you, they will be things you will miss. Give me your other arm!"


2.
Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) - Terminator 2: Judgment Day, 1991
After spending the first movie of the franchise being relentlessly pursued by a killer robot from the future, Sarah Connor adds some major muscle mass and throws herself into the role of preparing her son to be the savior of humanity. This of course leads to her winding up in an asylum, but the resourceful Connor has no intentions of staying there long. Her breakout scene is one badass thrill-ride you don't want to miss. While her son John and the latest Terminator from the future get the majority of screen time, it’s Connor and her intense, half-crazed stare who steals the show.

Best Line: "There's 215 bones in the human body. That's one. Now don't move."


1.
Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) Aliens, 1981
The queen of all badasses, Ellen Ripley, has spent numerous films fighting off deadly acid-blooded aliens. And even jumping into a vat of lava wasn’t enough to stop her, as she showed up centuries later as a more lethal genetic clone of the original. But Ripley is at her best in the James Cameron installment of the franchise, staying alive and thriving while Space Marines drop left and right. The lady also knows how to operate the heck out of a cargo-loader, taking on the alien queen head-to-head while fiercely protecting the young child, Newt.

Best Line: “Get away from her you BITCH!”


So next time you're thinking of making some loud mouth, chauvinist remark, just remember, it may be directed at one of these badass women. And if you're not careful you might find yourself crawling home... or worse. The floor is now yours, so let's hear it. Who are some of your favorite Badass Women in Film?

Scre4m Review

I expected Scre4m to be an entertaining, semi-sleazy homage to the three previous Scream films, as well as a self-aware, fun, gory romp à la Wes Craven. On Saturday, I finally watched this movie with my friends Jacob and Kristen, and I’m happy to report that this movie was exactly what I expected. (Although, I didn’t expect Mary McDonnell’s face to be as scary as Ghostface, but what are you gonna do?)

Roger Ebert raised this thought in his two-star review of Scre4m, “The characters are almost preternatural in their detachment; if you were embedded in events like these, wouldn’t you be paralyzed with panic?” and this is a question anyone who watches the film will likely ask while exiting the theater. Kristen, Jacob and I did, asking a series of “why” questions while we drove home. Like: “Why is everyone acting so normal when people are getting murdered by a madman? Why do they always answer their phones? Why would you go grocery shopping at 10 PM? Why would you sneak out of the house to go to a stupid party? Why are Courteney Cox’s lips so much bigger than they used to be?”

The reason I like to watch movies like Scre4m is that the characters don’t always act rationally. The Scream series, in particular, is cynical, scary, funny and chock-full of people with unreasonable, even delusional behavior. I’m constantly calculating what I would do in every situation and judging the poor decisions of each careless victim. These movies are entertaining because they turn a movie-going experience into a sort of survival game for the willing viewer, and that can be really satisfying.

What makes the Scream series stand out from other slasher movies is its cast. Neve Campbell (hasn’t aged a bit), Courteney Cox (weathered but sexy), and David Arquette (dorky cute) are easily the best part of the Scream series, and they effortlessly make this latest installation extremely enjoyable. It’s clear that the entire franchise would severely suffer without them.

Check it out!

African Cats Review


I absolutely love Disneynature’s Earth Day tradition! In years past we’ve seen Earth and Oceans, and this year we get a live-action Lion King, only no one is singing “Circle of Life.” Directors Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey take us on a wonderful adventure through the eyes of two families – lions and cheetahs. The movie, which took 2 ½ years to film, focuses mainly on the urgent challenges of the cycle of life in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. It was beautifully filmed with spectacular wildlife footage of lioness and cheetah moms protecting their young no matter what the cost.

Meet Sita, a cheetah with five adorable newborn cubs, (omg, they were so precious) and Layla, an aging lioness who cares for her female cub Mara. Layla’s pride is ruled by snaggle-toothed Fang, an aging male who can still fend off a threatening crocodile or two, but has little fight in him when it comes to a stray male lion Kali, who, along with his four sons, aims to take his place in the pride. If Kali (who you really dislike from the very beginning) succeeds in taking over Fang’s pride, Mara and the rest of Fang's cubs will either be killed or driven out into the wild. Seeing this struggle take place is extremely intense, sorrowful and upsetting.

Then we have Sita – a much less complicated storyline. Sita, being a single mom, has a lot more work on her paws. She’s not only responsible for raising/protecting her cubs, but she has to leave them unprotected when she hunts. The capture of a gazelle is cause for celebration, and the cubs' taunting of an unfortunate jackal is pretty funny. All seems well until tragedy ensues and believe me, it almost brought a tear to my eye. Watching Sita defend her cubs against bigger and more numerous predators was awe-inspiring. With all the danger and risks these beautiful animals have/take, it really makes you wonder how any of them reach adulthood. It’s absolutely incredible.

Even though this movie doesn’t teach you anything you don’t already know, African Cats definitely melts your heart. It’s touching, inspiring, intense and tragic. The breathtaking photography captures the beauty of the country and has a simple story that everyone can enjoy. It’s also an entertaining way to make a difference - during the first week of its release; a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation. After seeing what these lovable creatures go through each and every year, the price of a movie ticket doesn’t seem steep at all. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, the script and music could have been better. At times both were distracting.
RATING: B

Disneynature's Adorable Chimpanzee Trailer

Source: Yahoo

How precious is this?! As Earth Day falls upon us and in light of Disneynature's African Cats hitting theaters everywhere tomorrow, Disneynature, the nature documentary part of Disney, released their next documentary. I absolutely love this Earth Day tradition! I think it's fabulous. In years past we've seen Earth and Oceans and it looks like next year, 2012, we'll get to see Chimpanzee, a documentary about an adorable three-year-old chimp nicknamed Oscar who is raised as an orphan. He will most definitely melt your heart. Take a look!



A nature documentary centered on a family of chimps living in the Ivory Coast and Ugandan rain forests.

Chimpanzee is directed by Alastair Fothergill & Mark Linfield, two veteran producers and filmmakers responsible for many big nature docs/series like Deep Blue, The Blue Planet, Earth, "Planet Earth" and this year's African Cats. This was produced by Blacklight Films and the Jane Goodall Institute and was acquired by Disneynature. Chimpanzee will arrive in theaters Earth Day 2012.

Beastie Boys: Fight For Your Right Revisited

Source: IMDb

Even though I’m a big fan of the trio, this came out of nowhere (for me at least)! On May 3rd Beastie Boys will release their sixth studio album - "Hot Sauce Committee Part 2." This is all very exciting, but even more so is the 30-minute short film in promotion for the album, "Fight for Your Right Revisited," based on the album's smash hit single that shot them to fame in 1986, "Fight for Your Right." The cast list puts any big screen blockbuster to shame - featuring battling faux-Beasties like Will Ferrell, Elijah Wood and Seth Rogan. The three Beastie Boys, Adam Horovitz, Mike Diamond and Adam Yauch, who directed the film, also make cameos as well, as police officers, no less. The entire short will air at Toronto's Royal Theatre on April 20th. But if you're not in Toronto, no need to fuss, as I’m sure there will be other showings (via the internet) soon after. But for now enjoy the trailer. Click here to view. Elijah does a pretty dope Ad Rock impersonation. Funny stuff!

The trailer is set to the song "Make Some Noise", this trailer is a promo for both the new Beastie Boys record, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, as well as the short film Fight for Your Right Revisited.

Your Highness Review

Being a fan of director David Gordon Green, who brought us the hilarious stoner comedy, Pineapple Express, I couldn't wait to see his latest collaboration. Your Highness is a tale of sibling rivalry with fantasy action sequences and bad language. It's Krull meets Lord of the Rings meets Conan the Barbarian. Though not as funny as I was hoping, and more crude humor than I (naively) was expecting, there were definite moments that seriously had my rolling with laughter.

On one hand we have Prince Fabious (James Franco), a fearless knight and champion who is often returning to his father's court with triumphant after completing quest after quest - he is clearly the golden boy of the palace. And on the other, we have his brother, Prince Thadeous (Danny McBride, who also co-wrote the film) who isn't so popular, in fact Thadeous is a lazy coward who smokes too much weed and is extremely jealous of Fabious the fabulous.

We begin our story after Fabious returns from yet another quest with yet another victory. It's there we meet his soon to be bride Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), a lovely (not too bright) waif with a good singing voice that Fabious has rescued. However, during the wedding ceremony the fair maiden is kidnapped by Leezar (Justin Theroux), an evil and seriously immature momma's boy wizard whose vile plan requires deflowering the virgin when the two moons a line in order to impregnate her with a demonic dragon offspring. Of course the honorable King Tallious (Charles Dance) forces the unwilling Thadeous to accompany his brother on the quest to rescue Belladonna. It's during their quest that they meet Isabel (Natalie Portman), a fearless warrior who is hellbent on avenging her families untimely deaths. I feel she is the only one who really didn't quite fit in this movie. She comes off, frankly, like a high-school actress - her voice thin and her accent wobbly.

Of course with a comedy such as this there is always the inevitable envelope pushing. While most of the movie was indeed funny, there were one or two crude scenes I could have completely done without. Your Highness doesn't quite match the roaring laughter of Pineapple Express, but over all I thought it was a pretty likable and funny mid-evil, comedy. If you're a fan of this genre I'm sure you'll enjoy it just as much as I if not more. McBride proves himself absolutely capable of carrying his own, while Franco puts that self-aware charm of his to great effect as the naively virtuous hero.

The special effects are quiet impressive and elaborate for a movie of this caliber. Given that the movie is largely meant to be played for laughs, it would have been easy to deliberately keep the production design and special effects cheap and cheesy as part of the overarching gag. But it's that kind of attention to detail that makes this movie that much more worthy of a great laugh.

RATING: C-


Did this quest suck,

or was it everything you thought it'd be and more?

Beautiful Boy Trailer

Source: Youtube


Beautiful Boy is an unconventional love story that begins when a married couple on the verge of separating finds out that their only son committed a mass shooting at his university before taking his own life. This heartbreaking story about love, loss, guilt and moving on brought me to tears. Usually when movies tackle a teenage murder or school shooting, most of the focus is understandably given to the victims and their families. But one thing I've always wondered about is the gunman's family and the guilt they're left to deal with. In this story we get the perspective from the gunmen's parents. I'm a huge fan of Michael Sheen and the lovely Maria Bello, so right off the bat I was intrigued, even though the subject matter is interesting enough in itself. This trailer is heavy and heartbreaking for sure, but on the flip side it also appears to be a movie about hope, courage and above all... love. Take a look.



Beautiful Boy is directed by up and coming film director Shawn Ku, and written by Michael Armbruster and Shawn Ku. Along with Sheen and Bello this movie also stars the likes of Kyle Gallner, Alan Tudyk, Moon Bloodgood and Austin Nichols. This movie is scheduled to hit theaters this Spring, May 20th 2011. It looks like a heartbreaking yet beautiful story, one I'm interested in seeing.

Celebrating Heath Ledger

Today we celebrate the life of one of Hollywood's beloved and talented actors - Heath Ledger - born April 4th 1979.

Most fans will remember Ledger for his Oscar-winning performance as the malevolent and sinister Joker in The Dark Knight, in which he blew our collective minds wide open with his take on Batman's archenemy. He forever changed the face of comic-book villains for better and for always, and it will go down in history as one of the best performances of all time. Not to mention his Oscar-nominated role in Brokeback Mountain. That role marked one of the greatest, astonishing acting transformations of our time. I loved Ledger’s work especially his earlier, lighter work — his goofy romantic lead in the teen-Shakespeare farce 10 Things I Hate About You, his sly, tongue-in-cheek turn as a medieval sports hero in A Knight’s Tale and
the skateboard pioneer in Lords of Dogtown.

He was truly a remarkable actor with an exuberant amount of
promise. Heath Ledger lived a wonderful, yet short life and he will without doubt be missed indefinitely.

*May He Rest In Peace*

Insidious Review

I love a good scary movie and with Insidious, director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell ditched the blood, torture and gore to bring us back to the basic joys of shocks and suspense.

Renai (
Rose Byrne) and Josh (Patrick Wilson) Lambert are a couple who have recently moved into a beautiful old house with their three children. Within the first couple of days their son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) suffers a simple fall and suddenly lapses into a coma. Months have pasted and still the doctors cannot explain why or how this happened. It's during this time that Renai feels uneasy about their living situation - she begins to feel an evil presence within the house. And from there the story unfolds.

The first half of the movie is completely terrifying. Wan does an excellent job building up thick
tension to create uneasy shocks and scares. I was so afraid of what was going to happen next. The second half of the movie, however, turned completely campy with weirdness and off the wall silliness. The film went from super scary to more of a fun scare-fest. Sure it was still eerie, but it wasn't nearly as horrifying in the end as you would think from watching the trailer. I was a little disappointed by that, and yet relieved at the same time.
Over all Insidious was a pretty-good genre flick and probably one of the best old-fashioned genre films in a long time (reminiscent of Poltergeist). I enjoyed the subtle throwbacks to Sam Raimi. Alternately spooky and scary this horror flick also goes dizzily over the top for its thrills. Unlike the spine-chilling antics of Paranormal Activicty, spirits and demons get actual face time here, and their eccentricity comes with unsettling humor that never fails to give you the creeps. It's a fun, campy, and at times extremely horrifying joy ride with a stinger of an ending.

Did you know?
The film's composer Joseph Bishara did double duty on the movie, creating the film’s score and appearing on screen as a memorable red-faced demon. Not only was the music fun and super creepy (reminiscent of the old 80's horror flicks), but he looked absolutely horrifying.
RATING: C

The Hangover Part II Trailer

Source: Apple


"This is a real tattoo!"

The trailer for the summer’s anticipated comedy sequel is finally here! And wow, it looks just as funny as the first. The Hangover Part II is essentially more of the same, which under usual circumstances I don’t like, but with this movie, I’m completely OK with it. This time around the wolf-pack hit up Bangkok. They've substituted the loss of Stu's (Ed Helms) tooth for Alan's (Zach Galifianakis) hair, there's a monkey instead of a tiger, and they’re looking for Stu’s fiance’s little brother Teddy. Even Ken Jeong is back for some weird reason (thankfully with more clothes on). Yes, it's essentially déjà vu all over again for Bradley Cooper and the boys, but I think it still looks freakin' hilarious! I cannot wait!




The Hangover Part II is again directed by Todd Phillips (Road Trip, Old School, Due Date) and is written by Scot Armstrong, Craig Mazin and Todd Phillips. In addition to Galifianakis, Cooper and Helms, the cast also includes other roles and cameos: Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Mike Tyson, Juliette Lewis, Jamie Chung and Liam Neeson. In the sequel, Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug visit Bangkok, Thailand for Stu's wedding. I can't wait see see all the crazy trouble they get into this time, not to mention the chaos they cause. Good stuff. The Hangover Part II arrives in theaters May 26, 2011.

You down?
