Well, it's Oscar time again, which means it's also time for us to (dis)honor the worst that 2009 had to offer! Now, I know the final nominations list is tomorrow (February 1, traditionally the day before the Oscar nods are announced), but I just have to pass judgment on the picks of those old stogies at the Golden Raspberries! The Razzies already announced their pre-nominees lists for this year a few weeks back, so looking at that I'll give my guesses for which turds will make the final… Continue
Ever since George Lucas got on his high Tom-Tom declaring movies are never finished, audiences were left with a bad taste in their mouth as we watched Greedo shoot first and a CGI Jabba slither about. So you can imagine how one would react to Ghost in the Shell 2.0, a remaster/upgrade of the first Ghost in the Shell film (as if it needed one). However, Ghost in the Shell is one of the few anime movies I'd love to have on Blu-Ray. And while this isn't… Continue
It's really no secret that video games can be over the top in terms of style. You have games where you absorb bullets like a sponge (much like 50 Cent, who is actually a video game character disguised as a rapper) without breaking a sweat, or games where you shoot fireballs out of your hand into walking mushrooms. That being said, Bayonetta is one of the craziest, absolutely ridiculous, and all out insane experiences I have ever had playing… Continue
Now here are the bad January movies that we're used to seeing. Legion is a bad movie. I would say it's laughably bad, but that would be giving this movie too much credit; there wasn't anything to laugh at. It plays out like a B-movie without any actual B-movie elements. The plot is doofy, but it appears that there is somewhat of a budget behind this movie. With that in mind, it seems like the… Continue
Thanks to the support of Spill, and Spilldos like you, I decided to do a second blog of the Box Office Flops of 2009 to cover EVEN MORE of the Bombs that 2009 had offered us. While this was a great year for movies, you do really have to look into how the films are marketed and given a specific date. Many of the films listed this time are actually between September and December.
While many films fall under fierce competition, others tend to peter out due to their premise or how… Continue
You might Remember some time ago that I posted a blog about an Avengers film made from man of the other Marvel movies. Well this year they made their sequel, and While its not as good as the first one(Remember they hae less footage to work with) its still enjoyable, and a spectical to watch for anyone who does Fanedits.
I went to see Avatar for the first time about 2 weeks ago at an AMC theater in Northern Virginia. It was an IMAX screening at one of those micro-IMAX theaters that the theater chain is constructing around the nation. I won’t get into the controversy of calling slightly enlarged screens IMAX-screens and charging extra for the ticket, other than to say that if you have ever been to a “true” IMAX there is a world of difference between the two.
The whole time I was watching the movie at… Continue

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! Two strange things for me as of now is writing "1/9/10" instead of "1/9/09" and being committed to a new years resolution for once [now I'm not telling you that]. What I am telling all of you is the thirteen films that I considered the top of 2009, in terms of them being my personal fave. And no, these thirteen films are not the only films I saw that year. Here's the 46 films I saw:
Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Taken, The International, Watchmen, I…Continue

Well it looks since Sony executives are drooping the ball with who should be the villain in Spider man 4. Marvel and Paramount has decided to move up the release date for Thor from the May 20th release date to the may 6th date. Paramount didn't want to wait around to see what Sony is doing and jump up to the spot before someone else stole the weekend now seemed reserved for Marvel to… Continue
Talos. This scene, taken from the incredible 1963 film ‘Jason & the Argonauts’, is my all time favourite monster moment. Being only eighteen years old, the early introductions to monster moments for me were from films such as ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Independence Day’ which are all heralded as some of the greatest special effects seen on film. However, watching this particular scene, I sat there as a five year old… Continue
2009 has now ended, with quite a few decent, and not so decent entries into moviedomia. 2010 looks promising though with a lot of promising motion pictures looking to sweep though your local cinema this year, here are my picks of what I am most hopeful, of not sucking.
10) Alice in Wonderland
This just barely made the list, mainly because I was so hopeful for this film until I saw the theatrical trailer, it… Continue
I would like to thank the Spill Community for liking my blog on the various Moneymakers of 2009. So I feel like in return, I should cover the flipside of that and cover the various Box Office Flops of 2009.
The difference between this blog and that one though, is that a "flop" of course, doesn't necessarily mean a bad film. It can be bad...no doubt about that. But it can be critically acclaimed and still barely make any money, as you will read. Some good examples of this would with… Continue
It's 2010, a year full of endless possibilities, and hopefully some great movies too. But which are the ones that I'm truly excited for? The one's that I'm going to rush out to theaters to see? Well, here's my list of my ten most anticipated movies of the upcoming year.
10) Despicable Me (July 9)
I think it's those two magical words that have drawn me in — Steve Carell. Carell plays the main character in this movie, who has only been… Continue
