The Hurt Locker

| March 7, 2010

A critic described The Hurt Locker as almost perfect. Hmm, I guess so. I suppose it helps that it apparently is based on a true story. I can’t really think of anything that irked me, except maybe when the snipers didn’t reposition after their positions were known, and the enemy decided to stop firing for [...]

Avatar Script

| January 14, 2010

Sorry, can’t help but nerd out. Fox released the original script. http://io9.com/5446538/everything-that-was-cut-from-avatar-sex-drugs-and-suicide It’s interesting to see the differences from that and the final theatrical version. That would explain some of the scenes in the trailer. And yeah, probably not a good idea to look at it if you haven’t seen the movie yet.

Best Seats for Avatar 3D

| January 1, 2010

Well before I write an actual movie review, I thought I’d throw this up after I went with some IMAX noobs at one of my viewings of Avatar…My friend’s friend waited over 3 hrs in line, alone, being about 20th from the front. What’s he do once he goes in? He sits 4 rows from [...]

Avatar 3D – “Dreaming with your eyes open”

| December 23, 2009

[Update] I’ve seen researched it a little more, and I’ve heard multiple complaints about the XpandD glasses. Also, apparently the IMAX version has the full cut, whereas the non-IMAX versions have a cropped cut, losing about 25% of the screen. Definitely see it in real IMAX if you can. “Cameron’s genius is this: He makes [...]

District 9

| August 15, 2009

Wow, I haven’t enjoyed a movie this much in a long time. But perhaps it was because I had somewhat low expectations. I thought it was going to be a lame, heavy-handed, symbolic exploration of Apartheid. Not that a movie about Apartheid would be bad, but my whole angle on that is if you’re going [...]

Bruno

| July 10, 2009

First off, much, much better than Borat. However, while there were definitely some very entertaining parts to the movie, I didn’t really come away thinking it was my favorite comedy. That’s probably because instead of a core feel-good story, you have sheer ludicrousness instead. Plus, the trailer gave away more than I thought it had. [...]

The Hangover

| June 26, 2009

Meeeeeeh. Definitely a rental. If you’re bored. And have a few bucks to burn. I guess the creators thought they could just string together totally random events, and a great movie would plop out. Well, I guess it worked for some people, because the Rotten Tomatoes score is fairly good, but it’s overrated IMO. “O.M.G. [...]

Jessica H.O. – Life Is Good, American Arrogance

| May 16, 2009

I like her voice (and the eyes, I’m a sucker for crescent-shaped eyes). Apparently she kinda shot herself in the foot by publicly dissing BoA a few years back though, BoA being a music superstar in Asia or something. Btw, what is it with Asian chicks and using the word “fag”? I’m tallying it in [...]

JJ Abram’s Star Trek

| May 8, 2009

Wuh woh, begin uber nerdy post! I’d give the movie a B, probably to the anger of my peers, but eh. I wasn’t going to write this, but since I was out of line from my friends who loved it, I felt I should defend my rationale. I’m not really a hardcore ST fan, so [...]

Miyazaki vs Pixar

| March 31, 2009

Ah, Miyazaki. His mama raised him right! I’m totally going to sound snobby, but I’m going to say it, “Pixar stuff is overrated” and Miyazaki stuff is underrated (in the States anyway). Uh oh. Maybe it’s the foreign factor (I suspect it’s a big factor). I was watching some youtube vids of clips/music from some [...]
