Metal Parody Video

Lord knows that 80s hair metal fans/bands are easy targets for parody. A few bands recently have done a pretty good job with it. But, I’m just not sure that Backstreet Boys are the ones to pull it off. It should have been very funny, but somehow it just wasn’t. You’d think these guys would […]

The O Factor

In The O Factor, Field Maloney asks if Owen Wilson was the key to the Wes Anderson phenomenon. The suggestion is that Anderson is too insular about the worlds he creates without Wilson’s writing collaboration to act as a moderating influence. It makes sense. It seemed like Life Aquatic was a major homage to Buckaroo […]

Sideways Rocks

I went to see the movie Sideways this weekend. It was absolutely FAN…TAS…TIC! Go see this movie if you haven’t. Now, I want to drive up to Santa Barbara for a wine tasting tour (and I don’t even like wine).

The Final Cut

The Final Cut. is a fantastic movie. If you can get to see it, you really should. In the world of the movie, there are these implants that parents can purchase for their children. From birth to death, the implant records everything that the person sees or hears. When the person dies, an editor goes […]

Fellowship 9/11

Fellowship 9/11 is a bit tedious, but then so is the guy they’re skewering. I never saw Fahrenheit 9/11. I’m probably sympathetic to the message, but I can’t stand the messenger. Still, from what I can gather from clips and things I heard, this looks like it’s probably a very successful parody.

Salutations From the Other Side

Is Phantom of the Paradise the worst movie ever made? It might just be. OK, I’m sure it’s far from the worst, but it is laughably bad, and I mean that in the best possible way. They’re showing it on Fox Movie Classics. Do try to check it out — you know, if you’re into […]

I Know That Feeling

If you have a chance to see the movie, Garden State, and you like off-beat sort of semi-dark dramas, then get yourself to a theater. I liked it a bunch. You know that feeling when you’re with a group of friends, particularly friends you haven’t seen in a while, and you feel kind of disconnected […]

Does Whatever a Spider Can’t

I went to see Spider-Man 2 last night. It was good, but when did Spider-Man become Superman? I don’t want to ruin it for anybody that hasn’t seen it yet, but the whole train thing… What the hell was that? I never read the comic books, but could Spider-Man really do something like that? I […]

Let’s All Go to the Movies

I went to see the movie, Saved, this weekend. I couldn’t tell based on the previews and what I’d heard about it whether I would like it or not. It was pretty good though. It sort of reminded me of Election. I also watched The Terminal. Based on the previews, I assumed I’d probably be […]

How Wide Screen Won

Slate’s article How Widescreen Won talks about the way that letterbox has beat out full-screen as the movie format of choice. One of my old blog entries cursed the full-screen format, and there’s a minor debate going on in the comments as transitory users happen upon it as a result of one google search or […]
