I wanted to throw up the question - What do you think of the movie The Cable Guy staring Jim Carry?
I was kinda young when this came out but it has stood the test and remained my favorite movie over all these years. This may be because of an adolescent nostalgia I had with it when I first saw the movie but, I still think the reason it was poorly received is because it was a little ahead of its time in the dark comedy genera.
People have always raised eyebrows when I tell… Continue
When music artists need a boost in their carrers, they usually resort to covering another artist's songs (e.g. Eric Clapton (I Shot The Sheriff) and Brian Ferry (A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall). When artists cover The Beatles, it never works. Ever.
But what about actors covering The Beatles?
WHAT IF THE SPILL CREW MADE A MOVIE? I made a fan poster last week as just a throw away idea about a Spill Movie if made live action and who would play the roles of the spill crew BUT What would the storyline be based around I ask you The Spill fans out there?
So what about it SPILL Fans what would our hero review crew get up to in a live action movie of their world? I for one have this storyline. The world is slowly being… Continue
"The Hangover" was the wildcard movie for me when I first saw the trailer. It was funny, but I still had a thought in the back of my head like it was going to be a typical road-trip like movie with tons of the same elements. But like the Spill Reviews may have informed you, it's actually more like a comedic mystery movie where they have to backtrack to find out what happens. And you get involved with what exactly happened that night when they got hammered beyond belief.
If you are looking for a thrilling murderer mystery, this is NOT your movie. I am saying this for two reasons:
First of all, not only is this movie quite convoluted with side stories that are not at all related to the murder, but every non-American character in the movie is so over-acted, it would seem that Elijah Wood is the only sane person around. There just is no telling who the culprit may be.
Secondly, at heart, this, movie is not… Continue
Prof. IronMan is here to give you yet another look in the fantastic world of cinema in Cutting Into the Scene.
This session will be a bit special as it will be divided in 2 parts. I have always been a fan of Asian cinema ever since I saw my first Anime so many years ago. As I got older, I discovered a whole new realm beyond those given out by Hollywood... Asia. It was filled with intense history and culture so different to the one I… Continue
Author Dan Brown is no stranger to controversy. The Author of "The DaVinci Code", "The Digital Fortress", the upcoming " The Solomon Key" and " Angels and Demons" has been shown his fair share of disdain by not only the devout, but by his fellow authors, for taking his books too seriously.
Director Ron Howard seemingly dived head first into that same pool of controversy while tackling the movie version of " The Da Vinci Code" in 2006, and upon it's release, was… Continue

A few weeks ago i had a friend freaking out about how great Cormac McCarthy's book The Road. Cormac McCarthy, for those of you who don't know, is also the author of the much loved No Country For Old Men. He said i could borrow the book but being the forgetful guy i am just left it at his house. So this morning i bought a copy of The Road. I arrive home to see the following crap my pants awesome trailer...
Get Pumped! Earlier this week Esquire Magazine called… Continue
Hello all, I was talking with a friend of mine today(Serenity Wind) and she brought up a great point. Music is an overlooked and important part of our lives and in film. So as to not step on her toes I won't count down my favorite soundtracks, but rather my favorite songs that opened or appeared in a movie.
10. Ninja Rap-TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2
Yeah I know it's Vanilla Ice, which is stupid and it was Teenage Mutant Turtles, which some of you may think was dumb. But hey I… Continue
Here is part two of my classic review blogs of a classic Steven King movie... Enjoy!
As previously mentioned in a separate review, Stephen King films are vast due to the extreme volumes of work that can be adapted. Some have been turned in to TV Shows and Movies, others go straight to DVD and then there are the few that go straight to the screen. So with all this backlog, can this Stephen King… Continue
I have to say I love the summer; it's a great time for movie. The most enjoyable, big budget, kick-ass movies come out in the summer. And with summer a couple days away (at least that’s what X-Men say) I thought I show the movies I'm looking forward to the most.
G.I. Joe(The Real Amarican Hero) The Rise of Cobra
What can I say, that french trailer looks awesome I had to put it in… Continue
I don't know about you but I've never seen a Steven Seagal movie I didn't like (except Executive Decision w/Kurt Russell. It wasn't right that Seagal died in that film). I mean every film I've seen of him (The Patriot, Pistol Whipped, Hard to Kill) I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I think I've got most of his movies on DVD though some of them may have eluded me coz' he releases so many direct to DVD sometims I go into the DVD bin and I'm pleasantly surprised with a new one. I'm just wondering why he… Continue
I just wanna start off by saying this is still a kick ass movie. In case you haven't seen it this is a movie about a guy named Randy "The Ram" Robinson who was at one time one of the biggest names in wrestling. Now he's rather old and all the fame he used to have is gone except for amongst other wrestlers and a few hardcore fans. The fame and the money is gone, but he still performs in gyms for local wrestling companies every weekend and then goes home to his crappy trailer he can hardly… Continue

Professor IronMan Jo has arrived once again to give forth yet another in-depth look at cinema in Cutting Into The Scene.
This one will be a very interesting experience... one that I found very fascinating as I was researching it. Exploring the mad idea of Postmodernism, I slowly realized the obvious conclusion... that films are just a visual way of retelling the same basic stories, an evolutionary metamorphosis in the art of storytelling.… Continue
Since i love writing blogs here on Spill, and since i dont have any new movies to review i thought i would write a response to an interesting question proposed on Ain't It Cool News
That question being "Is A Remake OK If The Guy Who Made The Original Film Is The Person Remaking It?" Now apparently this question has been raised because (As you can read on Ain't It Cool News) Donald Wrye is remaking his own movie - Ice… Continue
