Robot testicles. If those words make you question logic, skip this movie.
The first Transformers
movie was a surprise hit. It was a movie based on a children's cartoon that was just a tool to market toys. Oh, don't look at me like that. Yes, we all had found memories of the cartoon, but seriously, that show sucked. The only reason we liked it was because it was a cool concept, not because there was a tight narrative. That being… Continue

It’s not surprising that I’d never heard of it before the movie was released, seeing as Richard Yates
’ novel “Revolutionary Road”
is commonly referred to as “the greatest novel no one’s ever heard of”. It’s an all-time favorite of many writers, actors, scholars…and pretty much anyone who reads it. Written in 1955 (though not published until 1961) the novel focuses on the hopes and aspirations of Frank
and April Wheeler
, a suburbanite couple who see themselves… Continue

He's one of the greatest, most well-known comic-book superheroes of all-time. But, of course, you all know that.
He's had a handful of television series (Literally! Five Fingers!), a bunch of paperback novels, a plethora of bands have adapted the 1967's memorable theme song and re-amped it with their own special seasoning, there have been about a dozen video-games featuring a playable Spider-Man and, of course, he's… Continue

So, three really good movies came out last week: "Up", "Drag Me to Hell", and "The Brothers Bloom". Now this ain't a review so let me just say, these are all really good, even great films and I recommend them all. But, anyway, with all these movies coming out on the same day, I had been debating which one to see first. With BB having the smallest release out of all of them and being the one with the least mass appeal, I decided to see that one first.
Now, Madison is a pretty cool… Continue

In all my years, I don't think I've ever gone to see a horror film on the big screen. I usually like to watch them in a dark room with a few friends instead of hearing annoying kids who shouldn't get into the theater scream when a random cat jumps out of nowhere. However, being a Sam Raimi/Evil Dead
fan, I HAD to see Drag Me to Hell
in the theater, and I HAD to see it opening night. So, unable to get all my friends together, as most were "too tired" or "busy" I went… Continue

The awesome poster for Evil Dead (DUH!)
Its a very rare occasion when I enjoy a horror movie so much. In fact, if someone asked me to make a top 10 (or even top 5!) list of horror films, i couldn't tell you. It's just not my genre. I watch my fair share of horror movies but i never really take this serious because I've only really watched the horror films of the last decade. But now i may have to reconsider what I get off Netflix… Continue

Is there a better time than now to re-release a perfect satire of Star Trek
like “Galaxy Quest”
? Now with all the excitement in the air fostered by the new prequel/reboot Trek
film, now is a hell of good time to not only check out the old original series again (review forthcoming, I promise) but to celebrate what makes Trek
such a unique beast…its fans. In 1999’s… Continue

So let's wind the clocks back 24 years. Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" tour is taking the world by storm. They are slowly climbing the ladder of notorioty to become one of the biggest bands in the world. Frontman Bruce Dicinson and bass player Steve Harris were leading the band to fame and fortune. Sell out shows and wild and crazed fans were daily occurences for Maiden as they soared the world of music. Then came the time when metal music took a backseat in the world of music and their… Continue

Sam Raimi spoke to Empire magazine and said that he would like to see Morbius Take on Spiderman in the next installment due out in 2011.
"He's really cool. A vampire. I like that combination of superhero plus supernatural." Said Raimi.
This would make it the thrid villain to be a scietist "accidently" turning themselves into a supernatural being. Green Goblin, Doc Oc. It's starting to… Continue

On Kirsten Dunst coming back:
“Kirsten, I’d love to work with her again..I hope she’ll be written into it. I couldn’t imagine making one without her, and I think she’s an important part of the movies.”

When I first posted this, I had received characters that I should have added. And I agreed with most. So here we go:
11) Arnie: What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
Still here is Arnie, the lovable retard played by a young Leo DiCaprio in an Oscar Nominated performance. An urban legend that I don't know the validity of is that he didn't get it because they were scared he really was retarded and might make a scene. Probably not true.… Continue
