Unfortunately, I’m not going to a party this year where there’s an Oscar pool, so it doesn’t behoove me financially this time around, but seeing them is quite the reward in itself. But really, the irony is not lost on me that the one time I won’t win money is the one year I get to see ALL the shorts. Damn you, fate!
Oh, the joy of reviewing another magical Nicolas Cage film. As we know, he opened the 2011 year with one of the worst films I’ve ever seen. Why would I expect Drive Angry to be any different? It’s not like Cage has any less debt to pay off, right?
I actually have some interest in the notion of things like Destiny versus Free Will. And who better to explore that than the great Philip K. Dick. Or maybe not, as he was kind of a dark writer. Things don’t always go well for folks in his books.
Rango may not be incredible, or a masterpiece, but in my opinion, it is far, FAR from being one of the worst animated films ever made. From a visual standpoint alone it is head and shoulders above most animated fare.
I’m pretty sure the person that cut the trailer for Battle: L.A. should get an award. Or perhaps a medal. Why? I was really excited to see this. It totally sold me. Like a magic bean, but without the magic.
When I heard our friend Dean was doing a documentary about conspiracy theories, I thought it was rather apropos seeing as his character Langly on the X-Files, and subsequently The Lone Gunmen with his compatriots, was certainly embroiled in his fair share.
You know, with all the good buzz coming from the U.K. about this movie, I have to admit, my hopes were definitely up. I still had some minor reservations, but also with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost behind it, I was going glass half full.
If you haven’t heard of James Gunn yet, I can assure you that you certainly will VERY soon. He directed a great movie a few years ago called Slither, and wrote the remake of Dawn of the Dead.
Oh, man, where do I begin? So many conflicted feelings about this Sucker Punch. Or not. Well, when all is said and done, it goes like this: Zack Snyder masturbates all over the screen but ultimately ends up shooting blanks.
Being a nerd, it stands to reason that I like the exotic pets. Yes, me and Chris had a Savannah Monitor and an iguana, respectively, some years back but had to sell them when we moved out to California.
