When I first saw the trailer for Paul Blart: Mall Cop on TV, I immediately cringed. Not because it looked horrible (I personally find Kevin James to be a riot), but rather bringing me to a time in my life I hope to one day forget. That’s right, I was a teenage mallrat.
Obviously, this isn’t some crazy phenomenon that occurs… Continue
For ages, Loki the god of Mischief has sought a way to bring defeat to his accursed stepbrother, Thor. But for all the battles Thor has fought, in all the nine realms, only one creature has ever been able to match his strength—a mortal beast of Midgard known as The Incredible Hulk. Now, with Odin the king of the gods deep in a regenerative sleep, and the forces protecting Asgard at their weakest, Loki is finally ready to spring his… Continue
Since before Tom Cruise went crazy, somebody thought Shia LeBouf should be a major star, and the very mention of George Lucas was not likely to instigate violence, videogames and film have had a somewhat embarrassing relationship. Videogame manufacturers put out game after game based on popular films (some of which are infamously horrendous), and studios try constantly to adapt videogames to the big screen (the… Continue

ABC has a number of unaired Pushing Daisies episodes in the can, with no indication when or if they’ll even air them. Like several beloved shows before it, Daisies was snipped off in it’s prime. Between the first season (abbreviated by the writer’s strike) and the second (axed early) the show’s makers managed to bag only 22 epsisodes, I believe - a typical run for one, uninterrupted season but, on the other hand, the makings of a nice little… Continue
According to E! Online's Kristen two of the Heroes cast are looking to get out; it's both Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter. Both stars feel as though their characters have drawn the short straws in Series 3, and they want to be killed off at the end of Series 4. At least one of them has a "death" in the works for the end of the season, but it may not be permanent. And NBC hasn't decided whether to let them out of their contracts yet.…
Sam Jones as the Spirit
When Denny Colt, detective for the Central City Police Department, survives an assassination attempt by criminals, he is still believed by the public to be dead. He decides to use to his advantage, since being "dead", he isn't subject to the rules that bind regular cops. To this end, he equips an abandoned tomb in a graveyard into a residence and headquarters and prepares for a new career. With that, he becomes the Spirit, a mysterious crime… Continue
First off, I am a democrat. I have fairly liberal views. That said, i went into this film without bias. Honestly, this is Michael Moore's best political film(I consider Sicko to be a movie about activism). I lauged my ass off and i actually cried during a scene as well. The film details Moore's 60 city tour that he took in 2004 to get the "slacker" voters from 2000 to vote in 2004. He did succeed, but obviously Bush won everyone else, so we were… Continue
Do you know what’s better than a horror movie? A HORROR MOVIE IN 3-D! Oh yes, kids, I am super excited to see My Bloody Valentine 3-D this weekend. Normally remakes piss me off, especially if the original flick is entertaining, but the addition of the 3-D element perks me up quicker than a shot of espresso straight to the jugular.…
Alrighty. Lets take a trip to Mumbai India. The slums. Your mother was beaten to death, you were taken to and orphanage just to be blinded, you dive into poop to get the autograph off a famous actor. And yet, all of these troublesome moments of your life have just given you the answers to all of the questions on who wants to be a millionare. This is Jamal's story. A slumdog who managed to succesfully snatch 10 000 000 ruppes from the game show. And how could a slumodog be that smart. Could he… Continue
The Dark Knight is without doubt my all time favourite film. Everything, from the menacing lunacy of Heath Ledger's Joker to the epic shots of Chicago masquerading as Gotham City gelled together to form what was easily the best cinematic experience of my life.
I'd never before seen a movie in which a villain was menacing to people other than the protagonist and those directly surrounding him - friends, family colleagues. The way the Joker was implemented meant that the viewer… Continue
Well folks, The 66th Golden Globes have just ended so I've decided to say my piece on the nominees and winners of the awards. Before I go on however I would like to note that this will only be my opinion on the awards that were handed out to films, not television shows. So let's get started!
Best Supporting Actress
* Kate Winslet - The Reader
* Amy Adams - Doubt
* Penelope Cruz - Vicky Cristina Barcelona
* Viola Davis - Doubt
* Marisa Tomei - The…Continue
It's that time again. Where snobbish video game websites decide what is the creme of the crop/crap so we can all blindly argue about who has the better system. With my seething hatred for the slavish dedication to "game of the year awards" this year, I decided to post a sort of 'anti-game of the year for 2008' awards. For those of you who are wondering, no, I don't have a preference for system, they're all horribly disfigured in their own special way.
After much hype surrounding Heath Ledger's final 'completed' performance in the Dark Knight the movie was finally released with strong reviews, a great box office return and an iconic villian. The villian was Heath Ledger as the Joker who recieved rave reviews even by the critics that did not like the movie. When Oscar season came Warner Bros. pushed a major campaign for the Dark Knight and specifically Heath Ledger. And now Heath Ledger has won a posthumous Golden Globe for his performance.… Continue
Now I'm one who isn't a greatest fan of Romantic Comedies but I do appreciate a good romantic story if it is well made and has a great script. 2008 was a very mixed year for romance on the silver screen but with any genre you take the good with the very bad...
I’ll admit it. I love a good vampire story. It was one of the reasons I fell in love with the T.V. series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So when my best friend told me about a book series called Twilight I was mildly interested. I had seen the book at some store and the summary on the back didn’t exactly thrill me. But I gave the first one a shot. It wasn't what I wanted and it really didn't hold my interest. It was boring to say the least. But that’s not why I am writing this. I am not reviewing… Continue
I watched parts of the real Frost V Nixon interviews before and after I saw this film and it was amazing to see Langella's portrayal of the controversial ex-president and how he totally embodies the character. No, he doesn't really look much like the real man, but he sure dishes out a convincing and compelling performance that almost steals the show, although you can't discount the supporting cast, especially Rockwell, Platt and MacFadyen. Kevin Bacon was by no means bad but didn't do anything… Continue
Lately I’ve been broadening my horizons, stepping outside the boundaries of my linguistic comfort zone and been watching some amazing foreign language films. From Spain’s REC to South Korea’s Save The Green Planet (which may have actually made it into my top 20 favourite films of all time), the world of people speaking words I can’t understand holds many sparkling cinematic gems.
