2008 DISCOVERIES…

2008 DISCOVERIES…

So, watching them there flicks on that big screen and paying up the nose just to see if some blond tart can outrun an obsessed teacher, I realized that there were many discoveries this year that have made me a better man. Let’s take a look, shall we? There should never have been a sequel […]

BY WAY OF IRON…

BY WAY OF IRON…

Leave it to Marvel Comics to sweep in out of nowhere and steal all of Batman’s spotlight.  Going from second most anticipated to THE most anticipated comic movie of the summer, “Iron Man” refused to let us down, and lo and behold it didn’t. Watching it in theaters was an incredible experience. And this is […]

PUPPET

PUPPET
4 Stars
Year Released: 2006

It’s both a Frankenstein tale and a psychological study at the same time, and one that works on inspiring levels of horror and existentialism paired with some truly unique animation from Patrick Smith…

YEAH NO DEFINITELY

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 14 minutes

The climax isn’t as dramatic as Snyder builds his story up towards, but the quiet subtlety makes more waves about the unresolved storyline than any monologues can ever hope to aspire to…

MY CITY SCREAMS…

MY CITY SCREAMS…

Black and White, Neo Noir, Pulp Comic Book Movie? My ass is planted on that uncomfortable folding leather seat with the sticky cup rests come 2009. Stow the “Untouchables” score, though. [youtube]Fj-avI31YPE[/youtube]

LIKE IT OR NOT, IT’S COMING PART TWO

LIKE IT OR NOT, IT’S COMING PART TWO

This scenario sounds like someone on a fan board threw names together to goof on remakes and an exec from Hollywood decided to act upon it. Take a brilliant science fiction film like “The Incredible Shrinking Man,” put it through the Hollywood grinder, and you’ll get: “Brett Ratner is in negotiations to direct Universal Pictures […]

WERE YOU WATCHING, TOO?

WERE YOU WATCHING, TOO?

Honest to god, this isn’t an attempt at a plug of any kind, but “Attack of the Show!” is one of my new favorite guilty pleasures. If you were watching last night, then they signed off with one of the funniest (impromptu?) stunts on the set I’ve seen since I started watching. I was in […]

While it’s certainly not as atrocious as the likes of “One Missed Call,” it’s certainly one of the worst of 2008, so far…

RACK ‘EM AND PACK ‘EM: CLOSING CLOVEY…

RACK ‘EM AND PACK ‘EM: CLOSING CLOVEY…

So, I never closed out the “Cloverfield” Investigation properly and for many reasons. Mainly it was because I may continue the viral explosion if there happens to be a sequel, but mostly because I could never figure out how to go out on a high note. In lieu of the April 22nd DVD release, I […]

SEE? THE “PROM NIGHT” REMAKE WON’T BE SO BAD…

SEE? THE “PROM NIGHT” REMAKE WON’T BE SO BAD…

Words the promoters will very well hear after theatergoers have finished watching “Prom Night:” “That prank scared me more than that stupid movie did.” But still, funny. [youtube]KosWohXL-Cg[/youtube] You have to love the expression of the first victim.
