Earlier this week, I went and saw a movie.  It was one of the more daring experiences of the year.

Now, you’re probably saying to yourself that going to the movies is, inherently, not exactly something you can call “Daring”.  Skydiving is daring.  Bungee jumping is daring.  Riding in a Toyota is daring, for a number of reasons.  But sitting in a darkened theater with a piece of cinema?  Meh.  So let me explain.

You see, I’d been warned by at least a dozen people that seeing this movie was a bad idea.  They said the trailers looked bad, they said that the general concept of the movie was poor, and that there was NO WAY ON EARTH that this movie could have any redeeming qualities whatsoever.  Even Parris himself chided me that it would be a waste of time to see this movie.

So I’m here today to tell you something very important:  There’s a recent movie that you probably haven’t seen yet, that’s still in your local theater, and it’s totally worth your time and money.  In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it’s probably BETTER if you see it in the theaters, because this is one of those times when having the big screen and a nice, booming sound system makes the movie a more complete experience.  Ignore what your friends tell you about this.  Set aside your preconceived notions.  I’m here to tell you, right now, that there’s a 2010 movie you probably haven’t seen that you NEED to see, because it’s just so much fun, and so entertaining.  In fact, I had so much fun that I’m adding this into my list of Top 10 Films for 2010.

Find out what the hell I’m talking about after the break.
