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.
When I first saw the trailer for this film I thought it looked good. But as the release date got closer, the trailers got longer, and well, let’s just say the mystery seemed to be fading.
Let’s see if I can describe to you the plot of this movie. There’s this hobo, see? And he has this shotgun, right? And he is really pissed off about all the crime in the city, so he goes around killing all the unsavory, criminal types.
Thankfully, you didn’t need to bother yourself with seeing Scream 2 and 3 in order to get anything out of Scream 4. I know I didn’t. It does help to see the first one, of course, but that probably goes without saying. I hope.
Don’t you hate it when you’re watching a film or some show and some glaringly obvious product is shoved in front of the camera, like a can of Coke or something? It’s so blatantly obvious that it’s a product placement. Obnoxious much?
If ever there was a movie for us nerds, this would be it. As you all know, we stand by the slogan, “Han shot first” pretty religiously around here. And that is one of the points of interest in this highly entertaining and informative documentary that is all about how people feel about the Star Wars saga, both good and bad.
