Clerks II

I just got back from Kevin Smith’s latest film, Clerks II. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Smith, well, he’s not for everyone. His films are filled with pop-culture references, gutter humor that would make a sailor blush, and a geek sensibility that will just be beyond most people. His first film was… read more

The other day I wrote about the hideous paint job on Optimus Prime in the Transformers movie. Well, today at San Diego Comic Con Paramount made a huge announcment that will warm every die-hard Transformers fan… Peter Cullen is the voice of Optimus Prime! Ok, for the 99.9% of you who went “um….”, he was… read more

Shameless advert time! V For Vendetta comes out August 1st, I can not wait to get this! Best movie I have seen in the theater in ages! You can get a Full Screen (why do people still buy this format?), Widescreen or the Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition. I’m going for the two-disc set, but because… read more

I grew up on the Transformers. I spent hours transforming them, making them battle, playing out mini Autobots vs. Decepticons wars. I always thought there would be a movie some day, and if you didn’t know it, there’s going to be one released on July 4th, 2007. Sadly, the more I learn, the more I… read more

So, tomorrow we will be treated to a remake of the classic 1976 horror film, The Omen. This is a travesty on so many levels, I wouldn’t even know where to start. To add insult to injury though, today it was announced that Rob Zombie would be remaking Halloween. This is one of my all-time… read more

V For Vendetta

I hate to say it, but I’m not big on going out to the theater any more. It always seems more hassle than it’s worth. Ticket prices are climbing, snacks are over priced, if you have to go to the bathroom you can’t pause it and so on. Hollywood wonders why theater attendance is down,… read more

Every year I say I won’t watch, but yet, there I am every year, watching. The Academy Awards always bore me, but yet I can’t pull myself away. I know they really are bought by the movie studios, but they are still interesting. So, here are some random thoughts. The Host – The opening footage… read more

He passed away from pulmonary and respiratory complications at the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center. Knotts was best known as Barney Fife on The… read more

Yes! Finally Rent has a release date on DVD! February 21st will see both a Widescreen and a Fullscreen versions released. Although, I will never understand why anyone wants Fullscreen, but that may just be me. If you didn’t get to check out this movie in the theaters, and judging by it’s $29,077,547 gross, you… read more

No no no no no no!

It seems Steven Speilberg is considering remaking Mary Poppins. NO! No no no no no no! There are some movies that are 100% perfect the first time. You (meaning any filmmaker) have nothing to add to it! Leave it alone! Would you remake Gone with the Wind? No! Would you remake Citizen Kane? No! Would… read more
