This Christmas special takes place after the events of SHREK THE THIRD. Shrek and Fiona are happily raising their babies, but Donkey keeps bugging Shrek about getting ready for Christmas. Shrek has never celebrated Christmas before and doesn't plan on doing so until he finds out Fiona is looking forward to it and Shrek unexpectedly promises Fiona a Christmas surprise. Shrek races into town on … more
A man receives an anonymous letter informing him he is the father of a 19-year old son, so he sets off on a journey to visit his old girlfriends to see which one wrote the letter. Bill Murray stars in this movie which is, at times, funny, pathetic, and shocking but mostly just boring. His character is an unappealing, solitary man who shows no interest or emotion; Murray pretty … more
Before seeing PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME for the first time, I was already somewhat familiar with the general premise of the story because I had played a couple of video games the movie is based upon. The movie follows prince Dastan (Jake Gyllenhall), the adopted son of King Sharaman (Ronald Pickup). In the aftermath of the invasion of an enemy city, Dastan takes a strange dagger filled with … more
The Terminator is one of the most iconic characters in popular culture, but his track record is rather bumpy. He had a strong start in a debut movie that is a classic of science fiction. He followed it up with his defining moment in a movie that became a classic across all genres. After that, there were two more movies and a TV show which make the argument for The Terminator existing on a split timeline. … more
CAT'S EYE I am and have always been a big fan of Stephen King, from the books to the screen and everything in between. So it is no secret that I am a fan of this film. In fact I believe it is one of the most underrated of all the King related films that have been made. This movie featured three different tales all interlocking … more
ROSE RED When this miniseries debuted back in 2002 I believe I could not have been happier. Two of my favorite things were coming together, nay, three of my favorite things. Those things were Stephen King [as writer], haunted house [as the story and setting] and Julian Sands [as an actor] who I loved from the first two … more
Fin (Peter Dinklage) is a middle-aged train buff and a dwarf who has been ridiculed his whole life and has no friends. He moves into an abandoned train station, ready to spend the rest of his life alone, but slowly forms friendships with a grieving woman (Patricia Clarkson), an outgoing hot dog man (Bobby Cannavale), and a young librarian (Michelle Williams). What a wonderful … more
Ooooh, Howard the Duck...an odd choice for Marvel to make for it's first comic to big screen adaption and after it hit the theater like a rotten egg in the mid 80's, I'm surprised that they made it to 99 with X Men. Even odder was George Lucas as one of the creators of the movie chose this for a movie. Howard the Duck was a weird 70's comic about a duck … more
Considered by many Godzilla fans to be one of the lowest points in the whole Godzilla franchise, All Monsters Attack aka Godzilla's Revenge is admittedly, a guilty pleasure for me. There's no question that this is a bad movie, but its sheer absurdity and hokey execution makes it far too amusing to lump this with the likes of the 1998 Godzilla movie or Pluto Nash. … more
This biopic of Frances Farmer traces her life from outspoken teen to Hollywood starlet, followed by long periods of mental illness and barbaric treatment in institutions. Jessica Lange is magnificent as Frances; her performance is riveting and heartbreaking. Sam Shepard co-stars as her lover and Kim Stanley is excellent as her mother. It is never clearly established whether Frances was really mentally … more
Except when it doesn't. The original Robocop movie was a brilliant satire of big business corruption, marketing and sci fi action blended together with impressive special effects and grizzly violence. The sequel not so much but still catered to that audience. By the time the third movie was to come out, in what could have been a brilliant point in the movies … more
Universal Soldier isn't a great movie by any stretch, but to me, it's a guilty pleasure. It's a decent slab of late 80's/early 90's action cheese that despite some weak moments of trying to be dramatic, is still fun to watch for its action scenes and for the fact that Dolph Lundgren's acting makes him unintentionally funny as the villain. … more
FM_ALEX posted a Quick Tip about Wicked City.
This isn't a bad film and for some people might be a great film. For me it is just a cool Anime, a good if average flick. If you don't mind rape and violent scenes in your Anime then this is for you indeed. But if you like the kid friendlier stuff then stay away.
WICKED CITY Many things have been said about this film based on a book and directed by "Ninja Scroll" director Yoshiaki Kawajiri. Things like "disgusting", "classic", "dark", "horrible", "great" and so on, many different opinions. Well I am somewhere in between … more
BaronSamedi3 posted a Quick Tip about The Simpsons.
This show is dead. It needs to go. I don't care how good the first eight seasons were anymore. The Simpsons has aired FAR more bad episodes than good ones now, and it's time Matt Groening just euthanized the fucking thing and put it out of its misery, and bring us back from the delusion that it's still any good.
My first encounter with John Carpenter's The Thing was back around November of 2001, where I only saw a snippet of the movie on TNT. Just my luck, I tuned in at one of the most gruesome scenes in the movie. Even at the age of 14, when I was more seasoned to creepy films, still found it too disturbing to follow through the rest of the movie, and just tuned in to something else (probably The Simpsons). … more
There are a million movies which could be claimed to sum up everything about the 1980's, but none of them seem to do it so succinctly as one teen movie that was released at the tail end of the decade. I'm not even talking about a John Hughes movie here. I'm talking about Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. I have to use that example because virtually everything about it screams the 80's. It piggybacks … more
BaronSamedi3 posted a Quick Tip about John Lennon.
A serious contender for The Most Overrated Musician Who Ever Lived. John Lennon started out as one of those guys who pissed and moaned about his fame, but to his credit, he did manage to get over that. However, he basically wrote boy band music in the early years of The Beatles, and wrote like he was more concerned about his reputation as a pretentious artiste in their experimental years. Although … more
Robert E. Howard has been often called the ‘master of sword and sorcery’ and arguably, his most famous character is “Conan The Barbarian”. While the Cimmerian may have made him famous, but Howard also had another character that appeared in the comic magazine called “Weird Tales” and this character was called “Solomon Kane”. Kane’s stories took … more
Vacationing in a dreary coastal resort, a vapid beauty of fifteen years (Roxane Mesquida) succumbs to assignation with a seductive Roman law student (Libero De Rienzo) while her plump, saturnine sister (Anaïs Reboux) of twelve jealously surveils their congress, enacts notional trysts and ruminates on her anomie and nascent sexuality. A mutual envy binds and agonizes this sororal pair: the younger … more
