(Dr. Watson is about to see you now, Ms. Salander)

Well ive decided to challenge my bad movie watching abilities by attempting to watch every Steven Seagal movie. I am going to watch one each day until i get through all of them (im excited about Against the Dark where he fights zombies). So last night i decided to begin with his first film Above the Law. Given that it looks like it was a straight to TV movie based on the quality it wasn't as bad as i expected. There were some moderately big names in the cast, including Sharon Stone and Pam… Continue

The 2009 Sherlock Holmes has nothing in common with the Holmes created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.This one is a an who likes women, liquor and street fights and uses his abilities for his own benefit. Directed by Guy Ritchie, his view of the movie is quite dark, full of action and adventure and with a bit of humor. It has a fast paced rhythm which makes the movie pretty enjoyable. The landscapes are very good, you really feel like watching a 1800's London and the costume design is also very… Continue

Recently some Hawaiian residents have been trying to sue CERN (a physicists institute) to try to stop them from turning on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider). This machine is designed to collide particles. They believe that the micro-black holes that this machine will create, will destroy the world. This is one foolish law suit. Did you know that micro-black holes are created all the time in the earth's atmosphere? They disappeared after a fraction of a second and pose no threat. A micro-black… Continue
