Blood on My Netflix DVD Part II

Here’s a close up.

Blood on My Netflix DVD?

4 November, 2010



I like blood and guts in my movies, not on them…

Does that look like blood on the sleeve holding my Netflix disk? If it is, WTF? Also, how do I submit a complaint about it, it doesn’t seem to be an option under any of these subjects:

Can Advertising be Art?

Based on this ad by Guy Ritchie and starring Jude Law and some hot chick, for Dior, I’m going with no. But it can be cool. However, this Dior ad is no where near as cool as this ad:

This Looks Great…

This looks like someone reached into a 16 year olds’ imagination and made a movie out of what they found.

Pretty Cool…

This is a fan made trailer for the upcoming Stallone, Statham, Schwarzeneggar, Li, Lundgren, Couture, Austin, Rourke, Willis, Crews vehicle the Expendables that’s coming out this August. Its pretty funny, very well cut, and a little too “man-nerdy” for me (I’m coining that term). I think it raises a good point about the state of American “cinema” currently. Also, anything starring Charisma Carpentar deserves an oscar IMHO, if she’s not wearing clothes it deserves the Nobel Prize (yes, even a violent movie like this would deserve one).

Robert Pattinson and Dracula are Distant Relatives

I’m Romanian and American and this makes me hate Twilight even more, if it were possible… Its bad enough people only think of Romania as one big Dracula theme park, and this just perpetuates it…

Liam Gallagher at Cannes, talking about his new fookin’ movie, mahn. In all honesty, he seems completely self aware and intent on making an actually good movie.

His new band is doing the soundtrack, though?

Based on the book of the same name, a word-of-mouth smash by Sixties face Richard DiLello, it’s a film about the Beatles – but like none you’ve ever seen before.

DeLillo worked for Apple Corps, the Fab Four’s corporation that they described as “an attempt at ‘Western Communism’.”

The Longest Cocktail Party has been called ‘the only book about the Beatles that’ll make you laugh’. Peppered with the hilarious and poignant details that a writer only gets from really being there, it’s Let It Be meets The Thick of It.

The film is currently set to go into production in early 2011.

Seriouisly, Liam, we know you always have the best of intentions, and you genuinely do seem to be in it for the fun of it, maybe a little for the cash, too, when it comes to your side endeavors, but maybe film isn’t the way to go. Although, most Beatles movies seem to be either corporate documentaries or crap, except maybe this, so this might be a good thing.

Ha.

SSR: Inglorious Basterds.

I finally got to see Inglorious Basterds last night and my Split Second Review is this:


Kill Bill+Any Linear Movie Ever Made+Dr. Strangelove=Inglorious Basterds.

Not Really a Shocker…

15 January, 2010



So, No Distance Left To Run, a film about Blur, premiered last night and I have to say I’m genuinely perplexed as to why films can’t be released in other countries at the same time still. I mean, we live in the year 2010 and I still can’t get my hands on District B 13: Ultimatum or this movie?

I went to school for film, I understand the business end of it all, etc. but, come one!

Anyway, apparently Damon Albarn finally revealed why they released Country House at the same time as Roll With It.

Blur clear up one old mystery – saying it was Damon’s decision to release single Country House against Roll With It by Oasis.

The biggest chart battle of the decade became the defining moment of Brit pop – and Blur got the No1.

Damon says he did it to get back at Noel Gallagher. He recalled: “Noel used to take the p*** out of me constantly and it really, really hurt at the time. Oasis were like the bullies I had to put up with at school.”

Alright, Agreement…

This poor thing never saw it coming…

Someone agrees with my thoughts on anyone trying to adapt the Polar Express and, hey, its the dudes from MST3K!

Kevin Murphy: I’ll just start the bidding with the entire Robert Zemeckis Christmas movie library. [A Christmas Carol and The Polar Express.] He’s really tried, with his dead, doll-like eye animation that he does, to destroy Christmas for children all over the world.

Mike Nelson: Smack dab in the middle of the uncanny valley, aren’t they? You just don’t know whether to scream or be delighted.

KM: Just to warm myself up for seeing [A Christmas Carol], just to amp up my hate a little bit, I watched the Christmastown/Nuremberg-rally scene in Polar Express. The end, when the elves are marching in formation, and Hitler—oh, I’m sorry, Santa—comes out…

Bill Corbett: [Laughs.] Hitler Claus!

Split Second Review: Franklyn

1 December, 2009



Split Second Reviews are something I do for myself because I obsessively associate things to other things, such as movies to other movies. Ergo a Split Second Review is either a phrase or short sentence explaining a film by comparing it to others. Here’s my SSR of Franklyn starring Ryan Phillipe:

Watchmen plus Dark City divided by The Dreamers equals Franklyn.

Badass…

Topless Robot has an awesome list of the top 10 least wussiest vampire movies. I agree with them, except for Martin in the number 2 spot. Its not that it was a wussy movie, its just that there are other more action-packed movies that could have been there. John Carpenter
s Vampires
or Underworld, maybe? Night Watch and Frostbitten also come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, Martin is a great film and deserves to be at the top of the every “Top Vampire Movie” list, its just not a very “un-wussy” movie…

Check out the List here…

This. Is. Awesome.

Totally True…

I just watched a movie called Definitely, Maybe (I’m big on movies that are a couple years old for some reason, lately) and I thought it was going suck huge balls… and it didn’t. It was good, not Oscar-worthy good (not that that means anything anyway…) but enjoyable, different, interesting and entertaining. Not to mention it was well shot and acted.

Here’s a snippet of a good review from BDK:

I am totally guilty. You can throw me in a court room and convict me because I am totally and completely guilty of thinking this movie was going to be the same old romantic comedy BS that we have been seeing for years. I saw one trailer for the movie and found out that it was coming out on Valentine’s Day and automatically pigeon held the film to a crappy romantic comedy. Well, I was pleasantly surprised with the stellar cast and the amazingly clever dialogue and story. I know that most of the people who hear my reviews are going to be men; considering I do reviews for the Junkies and most of our audience is men. Let me tell you though; don’t let this movie shy you away because of its mediocre trailers. I remember seeing a TV trailer for it and there was a quote from a critic and he said that this was the best romantic comedy he had seen since ANNIE HALL. I almost jumped out of the window because I hold Woody Allen in high regards and Annie Hall is definitely one of the best romantic comedies of all time. Definitely, Maybe is definitely NOT ANYWHERE NEAR as good as Woody Allen’s film but it is safe to say that it is one of the best romantic comedies I have seen in a long time. Definitely, Maybe stars Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder, Blade: Trinity), Isla Fisher (Hot Rod, Wedding Crashers), Abigail Breslin (No Reservations, Little Miss Sunshine), Kevin Kline (In and Out), Rachel Weiscz (The Constant Gardner, The Fountain—married to my boy Darren Aronofsky, director of Requiem For a Dream, Pi) and Derek Luke (Catch a Fire)…

…Overall, this is the perfect romantic comedy that leaves most of the clichés out. One thing I hate is when all these romantic comedies just run with the clichés and the montages. The writers did a great job keeping the film intense and leaving the audience guessing. Now, this is not giving anything away, but one of my favorite things about the film was how it ended. That is one reason why I really liked The Break Up with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston. It ended in non-cliché way; in the same vein as Casablanca. I am not saying that Definitely, Maybe has a similar ending. I am just saying it did not end all cliché like every other romantic comedy does.

I really enjoyed the clever dialogue and banter between Ryan Reynolds and Abigail Breslin. They did an excellent job together on screen. They are both good actors and I hope to see more from both of them soon.

I feel that the film is the perfect matinee film, hence the 4 BDK rating. They actually are releasing a good romantic comedy on Valentine’s Day. This is good because guys do not have to suffer because their girlfriends want to see a romantic comedy. This movie will make you laugh and in my case get teary eyed. You can call me gay all you want but we all have an emotional side and guys can show that too…

The trailers definitely don’t do it any justice, it makes it look like the crappy romantic comedy I thought it would be. Completely different in my opinion. Most of the critics seem to agree as well

After that last post I’ve decided I’m never reading the news again…

Anyway, I found this video of a car being assembled that Chrysler showed at the World’s Fair. In 3D. In 1939.

Why WWTDD Rules, Part V…

Azharuddin Ismail was one of the little kids that starred in “Slumdog Millionaire”, and the last time he on here was 5 days after the Academy Awards when his dad back in India smacked him around in front of photographers then made him go beg outside their house. And by “house” I mean, “rickety box of jagged sheet metal and plywood precariously propped up against each other”. Basically a chicken coup, but less fancy and with more exposed rusty nails than food.

But good news, because Ismail doesn’t have to live there anymore! (note – “…doesn’t have to live there anymore … because the government tore it down and now he’s homeless.”)

The 10-year-old child star of “Slumdog Millionaire” was awakened Thursday by a policeman wielding a bamboo stick and ordered out of his home. Minutes later it was bulldozed along with dozens of other shanties in the Mumbai slum he calls home.
“I was frightened,” said Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, who lost his pet kittens in the chaos.
“Where is my chicken?” he asked forlornly, picking through the shamble of broken wood and twisted metal sheeting in search of the family hen.

That was tragically sad, so I’m just gonna pretend like I didn’t read it and then it will go away. Hey look Megan Fox in Elle magazine. Ohh, interesting, that article about looking expensive without spending a fortune sure is timely. I’ve found a good way to cut costs without sacrificing style is by focusing on lesser accessories, like belts and socks.

Hahaha, Priceless…

Absolutely true and hilarious:


openquoteRemember when we were kids and the heroes of high school movies were cool? Remember how Ferris Bueller was funny and smart and had a hot girlfriend and everyone liked him, and Marty McFly beat up bullies and shredded on guitar? Now all kids have to look up to are pussy emo vampires, underground MMA fighters with armband tats, and awkward, hateful nerds who make lame jokes and reference movies that came out before they were born. And when did all the guys become passive twats and all the girls desperate sluts? I swear to God, one of these days I’m gonna drive down to Fox and wedgie everyone who walks in the building. Soon as I find my pants.openquote
