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...

SURROGATES (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

Surrogates (2009) Come on, who hasn't dated a robot? You live in a big city long enough and, well, you get the bionic treatment. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, but it's just a shade above online hooking, er, I mean dating.

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...

How to Check If Your iPhone 3GS is New Bootrom / Old Bootrom

Mercury Blog Image - FLiXER
I must have been asked this question a zillion times by now via email, twitter and on facebook on “how to check whether or not I have the new bootrom on my iPhone 3GS?”. Since it is very difficult, if not impossible for me to reply to each and everyone individually, I thought posting about it for everyone is the only option. First up, what is bootrom? iBoot or bootrom basically fires up when you are restoring your iPhone via iTunes. This makes sure that you are flashing a firmware which is greater or equal to the current version on the phone, and that it is genuine and legit (not custom...

COUPLES RETREAT (2009) Weekly Pick

Couples Retreat (2009) You may be tempted to ignore this pick and go see An Education instead, and you know what, you might be right. An Education is a fine movie, moving and introspective. But not everybody will be able to see An Education this weekend due to the platform release. So, how bout a retreat?

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.

Secret Mission of the Terminator

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...

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.
