Jesus Camp

It’s Labor day weekend again, and as with last year, I’m burning through the DVDs. Due to writing though, I won’t hit last years total of 18, but I still will get a good number knocked out. First up, Jesus Camp, the controversial documentary that was nominated for an Academy Award last year. Why was… read more


One of my all-time favorite sci-fi films is the 1951 classic, The Day The Earth Stood Still. For those of you unfamiliar with it, a UFO lands in Washington D.C. and an alien and his giant robot emerge from the saucer. As one would expect of the Cold War era, we don’t take too kindly… read more

Oh, this is too funny. Me thinks someone has heard from his corporate overlords and was told he was being an idiot. Yesterday I mentioned how Michael Bay was all up in arms over Paramount going to HD-DVD only? He was proclaiming “…No Transformers 2 for me!” and how he was unahppy with the switch… read more

1-18-08

The insanity surrounding this mysterious movie-with-no-name-yet, but most call it 1-18-08, is getting way out of control. It all pretty much started with a trailer in front of the Transformers movie that had no name attached to it, just the release date of 1-18-08. I have to admit, I was immediately sucked in like I… read more

I love the 1982 movie Blade Runner. I mean… I LOVE IT. It’s one of the first films I can remember making me sit up and take notice of the power of a well scripted, beautifully shot film. I was 10 when I saw it, and I just remember sitting in the old Kennedy theater… read more

Director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp are once again teaming up on screen. I know, you’re all shocked, this only makes the sixth time by my count. This time it’s the musical, Sweeney Todd. Yes, you read that correctly… it’s a musical. So far, this poster is the only image that’s been released, (click… read more

Dinner For Five

I had no clue Dinner For Five was getting a complete DVD set until last night! Best.Birthday.Present.To.Myself.EVER! If you aren’t familiar with this series, it aired for four seasons on IFC. The premise was simple: Jon Favreau would invite four people from various parts of the entertainment industry to have dinner, and it was filmed.… read more

Transformers

Well, the day has come. After nearly a year of whining, fearing, and dreading, the Transformers movie has been unleashed on the world. I know what you’re all waiting for, was it as I bad as I expected? No. It was worse. This is totally ignoring the changes from the cartoon, the toys, the comic… read more

Okay, The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins, is still filming. The Joker got me interested, and then… some more pictures surfaced. First up, we have the new Batsuit (click any of these images for a MUCH larger version) I like it, it’s a bit more practical; he can finally turn his head and… read more
