New York, I Love You (2009) - Movie Review

It's New York. The sin-ty that never sleeps in an effort to bilk the entire world out of every Koruna they can. You know who I'm talking about Goldman Sachs et al., don't ya? But, there are some real people left in NY that have rich movie star friends that like to make little shorts and convince their Vivendi "friends" to produce.

It's littered with stars, just look at the list below, and yet it's still kinda interesting. There are stories, enjoyable ones, that are worth telling from this group. Surprising I know. It might not be as satisfying as a full on, well written love story, but occasionally, compilations are worth it.

There is much erne in this montage of New York love seekers. So much so, that I emplore you to not skip the snacks for this one. You'll need them to help you look away during a few moments of uber erne-ness. A shy, coy glance at the raisnettes will do the trick.

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

Inglourious Basterds (2009) Full Metal Kill Bill with some pithy Pulp Fiction tucked in it's trousers. And some smirking Brad Pitt as a 1944 Rico Suave to boot. And speaking of boots...lot's of boots. Yet, very little of the "knocking of boots." QT seems to shy away from those scenes a bit even though Nazi occupied France was probably even more sexed than normal.

Mercury Blog Image - FLiXER
After three years of reboots, prequels and sequels, the market for original screenplays finally sizzle again in Hollywood. No less than 18 spec scripts - movie scripts written without a contract - was sold in October. This is the highest number since before the monthly Writers Guild strike in 2007-2008.

Paranormal Activity 2 (2010) - Movie Review

Review Poster Image - FLiXER - November 27, 2010 - 5:49pm
You would think from all the horror films you've watched in you're years, that fear is now behind you. Wrong. Paranormal Activity 2, the sequel of the biggest phenomenal horror film, will squeeze shut your eyes and make you feel an intense insomnia on you're shoulder. This film is so unlike others, in the sense that it's a new taste of horror. To start off, I can't argue enough how much this film is nothing like the Blair Witch Project. When others compare both films and say Paranormal got it's idea from it, it's total stupidity. The development of Paranormal Activity 2 is based off the...

Who is Betty Brant? And is she the girl with the spidery tattoo?

superman Blog Image - FLiXER
Emma Stone may have taken the Easy A route to Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man (reboot), but there is one part that may be more... resilient than it seems. She's sat in the background watching and waiting for her spotlight and I think now's the time. Elizabeth Brant. Betty to her friends and there are many. Some have rumored Zooey Descahanel, and others pine for Elizabeth Banks who's already had the forgotten part in the previous Spider-Man movies. But whom ever gets it, keep in mind, Betty is no push-over. As a tough girl from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Betty has the goods. She's smart and savvy,...

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?"
