I'm getting sick of film snobs hating avatar and looking too deeply into it. These people are clearly determined to hate it, and were so from the beginning. I've heard a lot of people spouting crap about the notorious "white man being evil" storyline. Firstly, who is this white man, but more seriously, generalisation is impossible to avoid with this many characters: PROVE ME WRONG. Also, no one gave a crap about this in dancing with wolves and the last samurai, just because they were loosly… Continue

With the end of a fantastic decade of cinema behind us, I decided to look back at some of my favourite films of this decade on a year by year basis. Remember these are my personal favourites, not necessarily the best films but they have a charm, rewatchability and sheer awesomeness which I find personally appealing to my own tastes.
2000: Almost Famous
"I'm flying high over Tupelo, Mississippi, with America's… Continue

Couples Retreat is a comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional. Couples Retreat is like a romantic comedy but without all the romantic stuff, well maybe a little bit of romance at the end but that's it. It has many funny moments. The locations are wonderful all the landscapes are fantastic.… Continue

Two Lovers is A Brooklyn-set romantic drama about a bachelor (Phoenix) torn between the family friend his parents wish he would marry and his beautiful but volatile new neighbor. It is a movie about how love sometimes make you feel miserable. The movie is really interesting, you can feel the tension and the anxiety from the character performed by Joaquin Phoenix. It follows a slow pace rhythm but it never falls into boredom. The locations are really good because they shew you a New York that… Continue

James Cameron's Avatar has broken The Dark Knight's record. Avatar has now made $75.6 million, just past The Dark Knight, which held the second weekend record at $75.2 million.
Wow that is just amazing. I thought that Avatar wouldn't appeel to everyone to make it past TDK. Peop[le say "it's just big skinny smurfs big whoop", but those big smurfs can make a sh*t load of money though. Again this… Continue

Around a week ago, I picked up the Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition. I didn't think much of it, actually got a pretty good deal, so I wasn't expecting much, but I have been engrossed by it.
It has it ALL. Superman I-IV and even both versions of Superman II (Donner and Lester) Along with some documentaries about the making of the first films and the character… Continue

Let's face it. Mondays suck. So I've decided that every Monday, I will post a short film that will hopefully brighten up the worst day of the week for you. That's not my only reason though. I'm a little guy in terms of the filmmaking world. We deserve a little credit damn it, so hopefully this will gain the filmmakers we don't know a little exposure. That's not to say that I won't feature short films made by famous directors before they were famous though. No, sir. We need to see those because… Continue

Flame me for choosing this another Takashi Miike film to talk about…and one of the weirdest he had made at that ( that’s according to many) This week was just hilarious and fun at least, re-watching all my collection of Miike stories and trying to come up with a different feeling after my first watch . I was hoping yeah, maybe I would learn to find fault in him but sadly, no. In fact, it made me realize a lot of things as well. Aside… Continue

I have yet to post any of my work on Spill yet but after uploading my latest short online, I'd figure might as well. All of these I pretty much did on my own with no budget. All of them are far from perfect because of that but I still feel they're worth showing.
This latest short film of mine I made for a production class. The assignment was I had to make a film with no dialogue as a practice in visual storytelling. This is also my first Venture into the sci-fi… Continue

I read a lot of Reviews from people online saying that seeing Avatar is like seeing Star Wars (1977). This is my opinion on the mater.
Star Wars is one of my favorite movies of all time. I am 25 years old and was not fortunate to see it in theaters when it was first out. My first experience with seeing this was on television and in full screen. Along came 1997 and the release of Star Wars Special Edition. I went to go see this with my brother and my dad. My eyes lit up when I saw this on… Continue

Why can’t I be one of those guys who KNOWS
that “The Hangover”
was the funniest movie of the year (like Leon
claims). Oh yeah, it is indeed a funny movie but is it THAT
funny? Apparently lots of folks think so and yet, there aren’t a lot of people putting it in their top ten lists. As dude-targeted comedies go, “The Hangover”
is much, much better than most,… Continue
