(500) Days of Summer (2009) - Movie Review

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER is so absolutely adorable that, as the ending credits were rolling, I had the overwhelming urge to wrap my arms around the movie and never let it go.  It was so precious and utterly enjoyable that I wish its fast 96 minutes had been 500.  I could never get enough of this delightful tale.  When the DVD comes out, I hope it's chock full of deleted scenes.  Although I usually never watch them on DVDs, I want to see every minute possible of this wonderful film.

It's hard to know where to begin in describing one of the best -- and quite possible the best -- film of the year.  From the very beginning you know the movie will be something special, as it opens with one of the funniest textual introductions I can remember.  After that, the frequent narrator carefully sets the stage for us, by explaining, "This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know up front that it isn't a love story."

Review Poster Image - FLiXER - May 11, 2010 - 11:21am
If you are reading this review, I am going to assume that you are interested in making films and doing so with no budget. Well, if that’s the case, you will want to read this. No Budget Film Making is just that…for people who are dead broke or close to it. I’m not talking about trying to make a film the likes of George Lucas. I’m talking about just trying to make an amateur production without going broke in the process. Today…nothing is cheap. Well, this course is a must have for anybody who is looking to do the near impossible in an incredibly competitive...

Mercury Blog Image - FLiXER
Apple has it's fanboys, Microsoft has a few too... This video ‘The secret mission of the terminator’ with great 3D effects is circulating on Chinese websites. In the video the terminator was on the mission of destroying Apple’s Beijing store. But it is too hungry to move an further, so it begs for coins nearby the store. Finally it gets a coin, but the Coca Cola vending machine threw out nothing after it put in the coin. Thanks to that the terminator didn't have enough strength, so it could only attack the store from distance and the big Apple logo was damaged. Say what? Some of the Chinese...

Apple Thinks Differently About Black Friday

Braden Blog Image - FLiXER
Apple's always been one to think differently, and never miss a chance to make a buck along the way. So this year, it looks like they're offering the best Black Friday deal yet...if you're an Apple stockholder. "A magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price." Indeed.

PUBLIC ENEMIES (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

Public Enemies (2009) "What is it exactly you do for a living?" We've all heard it, but can any actor say "I'm John Dillinger. I rob banks." and really pull it off? Maybe. Depp is wild card in his own right, if movie star was not on his resume, he'd probably be robbing banks about now. In France. With Vanessa "Bonnie" Paradis in tow, even though Dillinger is no "Clyde," he does channel Clyde within his explosive personality. "What else you need to know?"

The Blind Side (2009) Poster
Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw and Kathy Bates star in Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Blind Side,” which depicts the remarkable true story of All-American football star Michael Oher. Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is surviving on his own, virtually homeless, when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Learning that the young man is one of her daughter’s classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael—wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the dead of winter—come out of the cold. Without a moment’s hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Tuohy home...

Playboy's bunny turns more alluring than playmates

BANGALORE (Reuters) – Playboy spent 56 years making sure that the world would know it by the sign of its bunny ears. Now that the company is up for sale, Playboy's iconic logo, not the magazine, might be what saves it. Playboy Enterprises Inc is in talks with at least one possible bidder for the Chicago-based company. Fashion house Iconix Brand Group may be more interested in the company's saucy symbol than the photo spreads of naked women that made the magazine famous in the first place. Iconix wants the bunny ears brand, but wants a partner from the publishing world to buy the magazine and...

THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009) Swordfish is back on the menu. Even in a fast-paced NY City, things can get faster if an actor takes a bunch of hostages to get his stalled career going...again. And Tony Scott is the Top Gun to handle this kind of movie. All grit and blur, unrealistic time-lines, governmental...er,  govern-mental "move fast and appear as if you're doing something" action-packed "hostage in peril" yarn. Go Tony. Go Tony. Go fix that third act just a bit.

Being new at this

Makaila Evans Blog Image - FLiXER
So as you are guessing I am totally new at this. But I will learn. For all typos could know is I'm some girl who is sophisticated, but in reality I'm wild and shy. I have quite the character when it comes to drama. I am very artistic and love to draw. So enough about me this blog will have a lot about the different movies I watch and other stuff like that. I will be posting a weekly picture of something I like and I will do a description of a movie I watched. So this picture is from "Doctor Who". I had gotten addicted to this show. I watch all the modern seasons up until season 7 episode 6...
