Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) - Movie Review

Maybe, just to take a stand against massive, building covering "super" graphic ads, How To Train Your Dragon is NOT the weekly pick. I'm sure it's cute, funny and oh-so-3D, but you advertise your skanky marketing bed Dreamworks and now you gotta sleep in it. It's the tacky-ness of it all, and not to mention safety, that irks me. The relentless, slap in the face, "we don't care if we blight your vision / neighborhood / city as a long as we sell sell sell" mentality that makes me want to say "Hey, up yours Dreamworks. Thanks for the massive 10 story high "crap" blinding me on the way to work." And don't hide behind "we didn't know where it was going", they said they had permits," cause that's just bullshit and you know it.

Missing Missy - The Lost Cat (repost of missing website)

superman Blog Image - FLiXER
Missing Missy went missing - I guess the website got too many hits and they had to take it down. Here's a repost for your kitty loving/hating pleasure. And here's one of the comments "corrected" with cat appropriately replaced with designer: I am extremely emotional over this and was up all night in tears, I mean, that poor designer... I am not a big fan of designers. I do not hate them, I just have no interest in them whatsoever. If I visit your house, I do not want to pat your designer, sit on the couch where it has been or have you make me a sandwich after patting it. I didn't want...

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 Thirty Best Films of the Twenty First Century (So Far)

Mercury Blog Image - FLiXER
Not sure I understand the timeliness of this subject, but others have attempted it - see below - quite badly. "Thank you movie buffers for all your suggestions to my last topic, they were very helpful and I used them to help compile this list. In my opinion these are the thirty best films of the Decade so far. While I can appreciate how well loved The Lord of the Rings trilogy is I never found it engaging and therefore none of those films make the list." "There are also some noticeable exceptions, and perhaps an unexpected choice of which Almodovar film to include. All of my...

Movie Review: Avatar (2009) (2014) - Movie Review

Avatar Avatar was a truly game changing movie. It raised the bar on how movies are made and took graphics and scenery to a whole new level. The special effects in this movie are truly extraordinary and have people in awe of this movie. This is a science fiction movie that is truly a trend setter. Although the plot of the movie is interesting, the graphics and scenery in Avator will have you totally absorbed from beginning to end. This movie takes place on a large moon named Pandora around the year 2154. It has a large amount of a mineral that earth really needs so the United States...

The Misunderstandings of Tim Burton

Tony Conte Blog Image - FLiXER
Many of you know who Tim Burton is, if not, he's an incredible writer/director/producer. He's known for many films such as Edward Scissorhands, 9, Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland (2010), Planet of the Apes, and many more. When people think of his name, the first thing that would pop in their head would be the old classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Why? Well, let's see. In The Nightmare Before Christmas trailer, the narrator clearly says "From the imagination of Tim Burton comes ..." yet the the real epitome for TNBC is really Henry Selick. For the movie Coraline, the tagline reads '...
