Hello all. Haven't been posting in a while. Just a note : I'm french and english is not my first language so please excuse spelling and grammar mistakes. On the bright side, the game has been released early in Europe which allows me to give you some feedback on the game. Unfortunately it's pretty… Continue

Hi all! A quick post to tackle a serious issue that has ignited some passion on the site. Don't worry, it will also be fun.
See? don't tell me that didn't make you smile a tiny bit
As many of you certainly have, I have noticed that there has been a lot of discussions on racism lately on the site. Korey and Co-host have had a long talk about it on this week's Let's Do This
, which I recommend you check out since it is a… Continue

Hi, fellow Spilldos. Fouapa here, bringing you an early review of the new doomsday flick from this asshole over there.
I know, it's not very nice to call him that, but surely you'd feel like me if you had to sit through his movie. I actually went to the cinema yesterday but couldn't get around writing my review...I just wanted to forget about it for good, pretty much like I imagine you'd do after a gorilla raped you. But here I am,… Continue

On Friday, the highly anticipated and dreaded 2012 will hit US theaters and chances are you already know all about it...but exactly how huge is the advertising tidal wave flooding everyone's brain across the globe?
"I got's my eyes on you, Nibiru"
Being that I've been shamefully vacant from my blogging duties on Spill for months, I thought I could use some time to give you an overview of what's been put into motion to make… Continue

Hi fellow Spillions!
Fouapa, your french friend here. It's been a long time again since I posed anything, so here is something a little different.
Having recently bought the game Dead Space and played a few hours into it, I thought I could give a shot to this movie. Just a quick note: if you own a next gen console or a powerful PC and haven't purchased that amazing game yet, do so it's brilliant.
For those of you… Continue

I'm having one of those very busy month when you can slowly feel yourself turn into something ugly and dangerous. It's when I started planning various assassination plans towards random people in the street that I felt like I needed to drop some real pressure. I remembered the perfect movie to calm down my killer instincts...while enjoying the satisfying sight of staged but nonetheless terrible murders.

Claude Berri, one of France's best director/producer died yesterday following a brain stroke.
He leaves behind a remarkable portfolio. You might have heard about the recent Hunting and Gathering
(Ensemble, c'est tout) a great romatic drama with Audrey Tautou but he also directed many of France's most interesting movies.
If you want to discover his great work, his taste… Continue

Good day to you Spill members!
A few days ago the freezing temperatures made me seek shelter in the closet movie theatre, and for once I decided to give a chance to a french spy flick...when the lights went off I sat there dreading for yet another awful disappointment.
Damn, that poster sure makes it clear that this is not a comedy...
Let's say it right from the start, Secret Défense
is the most enjoyable… Continue

Will Smith officially declared last night on French TV that he will be producing and starring in the remake of Bienvenue Chez Les Ch'tis, a movie that came out in early 2008 and cracked never-seen numbers at the French box office for a french movie: 20,3M tickets were sold domestically, which places it right behind Titanic with it's huge 20,7 M tickets sold. It is currently being released across Europe (movies in France rarelly reach half that).…

The holidays are over and it's time for me to go back to some serious blog writting! A few interesting movies came out in France during the last couple of weeks, first on the list:
Les Enfants de Timpelbach
(Children of Timpelbach, but you guessed it), adaptation of the book of the same name, is set in a world that is not without reminding me of those of JP Jeunet (ie City Of Lost Children)...the main difference being here the… Continue

Comic books fans, this post is for you! Having learned a lot from LEOG about american comics, I've decided to start highlighting some French books I've been reading and would deserve to finish between your fingers. First on the list: WAKE.
Originally titled SILLAGE, WAKE is first remarkable for the quality of its art. The story follows the adventures of Navee, an adolescent human girl who was shipwrecked and… Continue

Hello Spill addicts,
Today I'm doing something a little different than my French movies highlights to put out there my point of view about the "hidden" message of the universally mocked The Happening
First let me make one thing very very clear: the movie IS bad, I'm not going to argue about it! However I had a pretty interesting talk with Antithesis, fellow spill member that's being discussed in the forum and migh… Continue

Hi, beloved Spill community,
Fresh from the land of frog-eaters comes Agathe Cléry
, a new musical comedy with an...interesting concept.
"She is white
She is racist
She's going to turn black!"
Directed by Eric Chatiliez, a man who's been acclaimed numerous times in France for his satirical and acid comedies, the movie tells the story of Agathe Cléry, a 40 something marketing… Continue

Following up my first Pressure Drop post ( http://my.spill.com/profiles/blogs/pressure-drop-silly ), here is, in no particular order, a list of my fav movies to watch when I need to give my brain a rest!
You may have heard Korey and Co-host mention this movie a few times in the podcasts...I know I did and I was glad someone shares my taste for this piece of comedy genius! What… Continue

Hey Spill gang,
Today i got out of work early and I though "hey, why not give that new 'nu reeves movie a shot?". Boy, what a treat that was...(warning, contains irony).
I know, it's mean, but I'm a bit pissed off at him right now...
So, the movie. The plot if you don't know it already is the adaptation of the classic scifi movie of the same name that came out in the 50s if I'm not mistaking. Well I didn't see this one… Continue

Good day dear Spillnauts,
It's near Christmas time and a lot of people are discussing their fav xmas movies on the forum or in their blogs, so here is my contribution with yet another unknown french flick!
Le Père Noël est une Ordure
, Santa is a Scumbag, is one of those movies that's sure to be on TV every single christmas. Everybody has seen it at least once in France, and most people can quote dozens of lines from the… Continue

Fouapa here, your buddy from the country of cheese and mustard, once again bringing you up to date with fresh French movies about you, the American bunch.
Today, I present you J'irai dormir à Hollywood
, a documentary by Antoine de Maximy, globe-trotting journalist. Antoine made himself known a few years ago when he started a TV show called "j'irai dormir chez vous" (I'm going to sleep at your place) based on a… Continue

Howdy fellow Spillions,
I don't know about you, but when i'm crazy busy with various stuff to the point I'm nearly losing my mind and sleeping doesn't even mean anything anymore, I have my own techniques to drop some pressure before I run out naked in the street and mouth-rape a car (I you'd wanna know how it's done, please feel free to send me an email). Of course there is the usual way-too-much coffee drinking anf fag smoking, but that's just unhealthy.
To me, there is… Continue
