Quentin Tarantino has hit the nail on the head for what escapist cinema is. Instead of giving us the action flick that Tarantino gave us with Kill Bill, he gives us the art-house glimpse of what we all wished would have happened in World War II all of those years ago. The film is just entertaining and keeps you interested in the whole two and half hours.
The Plot of the film is already enough to be it in the exploitive cinema genre, but it… Continue
For those unfamiliar with PC gaming as of right now, there is a game out there by Maxis and distributed by EA called Spore. It’s pretty much Will Wright’s last project before he retired to focus on other things and can be best described as Sim Everything. You start out as a single cell microb and then evolve your way into a galactic race capable of beaming down onto other planets and abducting wildlife to mess with on a genetic level.
The comedy troupe Derrick Comedy came to the Alamo Ritz on 6th St(which some of you remember from the party) on Thursday to present their new film. They have a following because of some offbeat comedy skits and they presented a short of the Mystery Team that was shown at San Diago Comic Con...
Then came a full length feature of the Mystery… Continue
The Final Destination * out of **** Spill Rating: LOW RENTAL!
Please! Let this be the final destination. The 1st and 2nd entries in the series were surprisingly good but the third showed us that they had run out of ideas just after the 3rd film. There are only so many ways that you kill people. The first two films were scary because the ways people died could actually happen. Plane crashes and car accidents happen all the time and its… Continue
It seems like a summer movie tradition that there is always an Adam Sandler movie that comes out. This year Sandler's tradition continues with the Judd Apatow movie 'Funny People'. There's just two problems: one Sandler's movies haven't been good for years & two they should have changed the title cause funny this movie is not. In fact I barley made a chuckle during this film. I was a bit disappointed, knowing…Continue

Maybe someone should show this movie to Brad & Angelina, this movie just might stop then from ever adopting again. But all kidding aside I originally had no intentions of going to see this movie. They had already made a movie like this back in the 90's with Mcauley Culkin called 'The Good Son'. Why do I want to see a horror/thriller movie in the middle of the summer blockbuster season? Well I don't! (except for…Continue

I just watched this movie called 'The Informers', and I really don't know what the whole point of the entire film was? It's a big assembly piece that contains a bunch of widely known actors (Mickey Rourke, Kim Basinger, Winona Ryder, Billy Bob Thorton, & Brad Renfro) and some unknown actors. Unfortunately they give most of the screen time to the unknown actors who really can't act. And less time to the actual…Continue
Remakes are nothing new in Hollywood, they've been remaking their crap for a long time now. Even Alfred Hitchcock remade his own film, The Man Who Knew Too Much. While many of these remakes were just cashing in on the name, others surpassed their predecessors. Probably one of the most universally hailed of the remakes is John Carpenter's The Thing, which very existence justifies the re-imagining of movies. But what Hollywood is… Continue

Its that time of the month where I give my Top Ten on ANYTHING!
Well 2009 is nearly over and we had such a great lineup of films. Nearly as good as last year. We have the complete crapfests to surprisingly wonders. And now we look forward to the rest of the films coming soon to our…
For the past half decade, I have managed to live without owning a phone, cable, or internet. Instead, I sponge off of the world around me. Work has been my main communication base on top of stray unprotected wireless signals in my apartment and my boyfriend's cell phone. It was almost a point of pride until I came to the realization that I was opting to become a relic.
My mother can barely turn on a computer, let alone do anything with it. She didn't hop onboard the technology train… Continue
There are tales as old as time. Tales of bravery, of good versus evil, of kings and wizards. Then there are tales of people with plastic personalities, wearing plastic armour and fighting with plastic weapons against men in rubber suits who move as if there balls are always uncomfortably caught in their underwear. Uwe Boll’s In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale is the latter.
I suppose I should begin by saying I’ve never played Dungeon Siege so I have no idea how faithful… Continue

Yesterday (Aug. 28) was Jack Kirby's birthday. For those of you who don't know, Jack Kirby was one of the all-time greatest comic book artists. Much, if not all, of his work has influenced modern comic book artists and cartoonists (whether they know it or not). In my opinion, he was the Michelangelo of our time. As an homage to King Kirby,… Continue
Ocean’s Eleven (2001) I saw this back when I was in the eighth grade, and really unsure of my future pursuits. There was so much stress I felt from my guidance counselor about what I was going to do with the rest of my fife. I won’t mention certain extreme urges I had, but just know that I have since come to my senses. This movie is basically what kept me alive. I looked at the way the guys in here dressed, walked, talked, and carried… Continue

As far as romantic comedies go, I found this one to be quite enjoyable. The title alone was enough to spark an interest in it. However, I have only just gotten around to seeing it. Another reason to see this was for the fact that Justin Long (Whose performances have been nothing short of stellar) and Kevin Connolly (E from “Entourage” ) were in it.
I want to start out by saying that Justin Long’s character in this film is precisely what guys think. Plain and simple. Everything he… Continue

As you may know by now by logging on to the internet DJ AM died today at age 36 years old from a self induced drug overdose of many different recreational drugs.
Now seeing as DJ AM is a musical artist his death is not as interesting as the past celebrity death's this year such as Billy mayes on cocaine, Michael Jackson's medical murder and of course David Carradine's erotic asphyxiation because many musicians are known for drug use and many are known to have died from… Continue
