Remember when Sci Fi movies were smart AND fun? Duncan Jones does, and he reminds you with Source Code.
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?
My father has always said that if he had his life to live over again, he would have pursued a career in special effects make up. He’s a truly gifted artist who loves to sculpt and I think the idea of spending his life creating fantastic creatures would have been a dream come true. The jobs my dad did have during his life included working at a meat packing plant, owning a restaurant, and for the most part, catering. But he did manage to feed his muse over the years with his own amateur art projects. My dad is now in his late eighties and has recently neglected his art stuff, so I was trying to think of a way to get him motivated again. Then, I remembered Monsterpalooza.
Sometimes a movie comes along that intrigues me. The idea seems interesting and if placed in the right hands, it can be elevated to barely decent. That’s Limitless. A barely decent movie starring a very pretty man, filled with obvious plot twists and a never get me on the edge of my seat plot.
I wish I could have been the 14th Assassin! This movie is everything that a Samurai movie should be and more. You heard me! Pull your saego out of your scabbard and get some business taken care of. Like a Kurosawa, Battle Royale and Dirty Dozen mash-up. Yes I’m saying a lot because it is tree-mendous! (Not really a word) Unless you don’t like 40 MINUTE SWORD BATTLES! Which if that’s true then stop reading this and sell your computer, because you don’t belong here.
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.
