As Told To Matt Tuohy

Where and with whom did you see the movie?
Kapolei, and I went with my partner and my 9-year-old girl.

Overall, what did you think?
We thought it was entertaining. It was action packed. Um, it was very busy and even though there was a lot of action going on, you actually could see what it was – you know how sometimes they’re kind of dark, and you can’t really tell what’s going on? But the visual on it was pretty cool, ya’ know? It kind of makes you jump out of your seat a couple of times.

What about the acting, did anyone stand out? Particularly Shia LaBeouf, as he kind of an up and coming “new” actor?
I actually didn’t (think so). I thought the character was a little bigger than him. He just – there were a couple times where he was as large as the character, but the character was, I don’t know. He just kinda’ looked small to me, ‘ya know? For what he was doing, and the actress who was playing his unintentional sidekick. There were times he wasn’t as dramatic where he should have been. There were times where he makes up for it and makes his character bigger you know what I mean?

Was the storyline believable, with the two strangers being thrown together?
It was actually believable, which was kind of freaky. And it was surprising, you know? Like, the twist – there were some twists at the end. You find out who you should be afraid of and go, “oh my gosh.” It had kind of a twist about half way through where you find out about terrorists.

Did you recognize (and like) any songs in the movie’s soundtrack?
I’m sure I did. Music always draws you into a film more, which I think helped in this one with the storyline and the action that was going on. But you know, I don’t necessarily think of any of the songs as memorable.

On a scale of 1-4 stars, what would you rate this movie?
I would say probably a ★★★

Who would you recommend this movie to?
I think it’s a good all around movie. For people that just kind of want to, ya know, get lost in a movie. You know, my 9-year-old enjoyed it just as much as we did, and she’s not one of those that’s necessarily into action movies. She likes, kind of kid’s action movies, and she was able to stay with the theme and understand what was going on and it all kind of made sense to her. It wasn’t so complicated. I think the PG-13 rating on it was probably for a few (harsh) words. I would think it would be more like a PG.

Favorite movie snack?
Red Vines.

What’s your favorite type of movie to watch?
I guess, comedies. Comedy-drama.

How often do you go to the movies?
We go probably a dozen times a year. We go a lot during Christmas time, you know? When the new releases come out because we’re more kid-driven.

What’s new?
We are getting ready for, um, Halloween. We’re doing a Halloween bash on Halloween night, and doing bottomless pasta, salad and we’re having a DJ and doing prizes and having a good time. We also started a just in time special, where you can feed two people for $25.
