Zombieland (Weekly Pick) (2010) -

View now and get a zombiebat for free as a thank you for your time, and effort, completing this movie. After which you will need a double tap of strong beer to kill the broad comedic nuggets rattling around in your zombie loving noggin.
This is not Shaun of the Dead 2, nor is it Fido: People Snausages. This is a zombie committee movie where director Rubin Fleischer took a little bit too much of the corporate Kool-Aid. It's zombie inc. ZombiesRus. Sonyzombie - soon to be a video game near you. That's not to say it doesn't have it's moments, every zombie movie has 'em, but the landscape for these moments are very much like that of Kansas, flat and broad.

THE HANGOVER (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

The Hangover (2009) Will Ferrell or a Hangover? Tough one. Will was funny at some point, might be again, and a hangover can be gruesome. Well, this weekend, the hangover wins. This is no Tom Hankish Bachelor Party hangover, this is a Danny Boyle Trainspotting channeled thru Guy Ritchie RocknRolla hangover with no desire or need to hold back for audiences of today. Comedy is not pretty. Steve Martin said it in 1979 and it's grown into an uglier version of itself every year thereafter. Yes, comedy is not pretty, but there are limits right? Or are there? When is comedy really horrific drama in...

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 '...

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (2009) - Movie Review

Review Poster Image - FLiXER - 10/04/2014 - 10:24am
Round two for Troy Duffy. Taking place right after the first, they didn't even have time to spend the $26K the first movie grossed. Somebody, somewhere is hoping it'll make more this time, but with 65 theaters, I don't know. Michael Jackson is the big elephant man this weekend, but those 3400 theaters are gonna be less full than Sony has deluded themselves to believe. If you like your movies Irish, then welcome the brothers Connor (Sean Patrick Flannery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus) McManus, now actually in Ireland from their usual Boston digs. Hiding out does that to ya, but I won...

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?"
