A Day Of Movies – Pt. 3 – Spongebob 2 & Twins

It is now 1:50 AM. My day of movies took a slight detour, but it’s time I finish up. After, “London,” I couldn’t decide on which movie to watch. Eventually, I went with, “The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water.” Screw it. Why not? I loved the first one.

Well, the second one is nothing like the original. It is aggressively mediocre. That’s the best way I can describe it. It’s an hour and twenty minutes long, and it feels like it’s three times that. That’s such a shame. I don’t care how old I am, I love Spongebob.


That video is a million times better than the movie I watched. It was miserably bad. What a giant piece of crap.

After that disaster, I decided I had to wash the taste out of my mouth with a classic. “Twins,” came up in conversation with my brother, and I made the snap judgement to turn it on. Luckily, I own it on DVD. I had always meant to see it, but never got around to it, because it stars Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Let me explain: I love them both, but I’ve always associated Arnold and Danny with the movie, “Junior,” which is a monstrous pile of scorching hot, monkey turds. The only reason I saw it is because my dad took us into the wrong theater. I was trying to see Macaulay Culkin slay bad guys in, “The Pagemaster.” I wanted nothing to do with a pregnant Schwarzenegger.

Anyway – “Twins” was really funny. Father time definitely bitch slapped it a bit, but not too terribly. A lot it survives. I could live without the obligatory 80’s action climax. Though, to be fair, I was in and out during the whole thing.

I was pretty burnt out by that time. Overall, I would suggest that you guys see it. I plan on watching it again, myself. It definitely deserves more of my attention.
