American Made – Preview

Tom Cruise’s next contribution to the movie-going public will be American Made. We at Buttered Popcorn are SO excited about the upcoming release that we are doing something new!   Okay, okay, everything we do is new, we’ve been open all of 24-hours, but you know what we mean.  We’re going to do a Movie Preview – a discussion of the trailer, and why we’re so excited for this new film.

The Mummy (2017)

Welcome to Buttered Popcorn! Our first review is for Tom’s latest blockbuster, The Mummy (2017). We had a great time watching this flick in theaters (several times), and we can’t wait to share our true and correct opinions with the world!

Smartass Summary: The OTHER OTHER one with the airplane stunt.

Slightly less smartass summary: A guy gets two girlfriends, but would rather be rich and single.

Ok ok, REAL summary: Bad guy tries to take over the world, unlikely hero saves the world instead.

Overall opinion:
Buttered Popcorn likes this movie a lot!  It has action, humor, seat-jumping “scares”, and it even takes on themes of good and evil, life and death, love and sacrifice.  In fact, there are so many feelings in this movie, we think some people might have a hard time holding them all in at the same time.  But that’s okay!  At Buttered Popcorn, we love complexity, and we aren’t scared to cry and laugh and hide our faces in the same theater session!

What are we doing here?

I just love making movies.  I love to entertain an audience.  ~ Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise loves to entertain us, and we at Buttered Popcorn love to be entertained!

Once upon a time (last week), I took a look at the decades-long catalog of Tom Cruise movies, and realized – if you watched one Tom Cruise movie per week, it would take over nine months to watch them all.  A friend dared me to do just that, and I decided to do it!  Sort of!

Buttered Popcorn loves to savor Tom Cruise.  We love to watch the same Tom Cruise movie 142 times in a row, and devour every image, every line, every single sound of the film, and cry over every perfect little piece.  We know ourselves, and we will not stick to one movie a week, so we won’t even lie like that.  But we will be reviewing every single Tom Cruise movie we can find!  And after we cover every Tom Cruise movie, we might even review someone else’s film.  Maybe.  (Seriously, at the rate he’s going, by the time we finish reviewing everything up to the time of writing, he’ll have about 20 more movies for us to chew on, so… we won’t hold our breath.)

Join us for some fun movie talk, pictures, and whatever else we can throw up here as we celebrate the work of an icon!  Pop that popcorn, melt that butter, and let’s have some fun!
