Jesus Christ, Uwe Boll, can't you learn from past mistakes.

Uwe Boll is pretty much universally known as the Director who can't get anything right.

All of his movies have sucked balls, and he doesn't learn from his mistakes. He suffers from crap actors, crap editing, crap camerawork, and crap directing.

But there was one movie that I wanted to enjoy. I really wanted to like this movie. In the Name of the King, A Dungeon Siege Tale.

He came within an inch of having a decent film. He had good camerawork, he had good actors... okay,…

Man vs Zombies

From Martin S Pribble's Blog

 

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all, and thanks for joining me again in 2011, for what I hope will be another successful year of blogging. As always, your feedback is appreciated. I'm going to start the year with what may seem to be quite a secular topic (i.e. non religious) within popular culture, but is actually much more.



Over the latter half of last year, I became somewhat…

I Like Christmas

I was sitting in my office today.  I was alone as almost everyone else has taken off for the holiday.  I had  Pandora on Christmas music.  I listen to a lot of Baroque, Renaissance, medieval, celtic and new age music anyhow and that was the flavor of my Christmas music.  I also had Trans-Sibrian Railway and Manheim Steamroller.  I really enjoyed it. 

 

I like Church.  I don't mean the religion.  Or The Church. 

 

I like the Christmas Service Happy Music…

Movie Discussion: The Invention of Lying (Spoiler Alert)

I braved a torrential Texas downpour on Saturday night to see this movie. Fortunately, it was well worth the drenched clothing and sodden sneakers.



This movie is brilliant in its dual criticism of both blind faith and strict realism. While the satire of religious belief is rather blatant, the film employs a subtler condemnation toward strict adherence to a singular reality. Prior to Mark telling the first lie, the world was completely… Continue

One, Two and a Few Sentence Movie Reviews

It has been a crazy couple of weeks and writing has not come easily so I just threw together these short reviews of GI Joe, Julie and Julia, Away we Go, and Aliens in the Attic as well as a complete review on District 9.



Aliens in the Attic


After an hour of dimwitted dialogue, the alien planet the antagonists hail from becomes a viable option to escape the mind-numbing effects of this movie.



Away We Go

A surprisingly mature look at love,… Continue

Thirst (Bakjwi) Review - Seat Squirming Sensational

When the Catholic Church in Korea tries to cure a disease, the treatment has unexpected consequences: vampires – of a sort. Unconventional, uncomfortable, shocking, hysterical, and fantastically entertaining, Thirst (Bakjwi) made me squirm with stomach-turning delight.



Unsatisfied with his life, Father Sang-hyeon (Kang-ho Song) agrees to volunteer for a life-threatening medical experiment. The experiment goes as planned but the treatments have a serious side effect for Father… Continue

Harry Potter and the Half Assed Film

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is the sixth movie in Harry Potter film series. Too dependent on previous films or expecting the audience to have read the books, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince fails to develop into a complete movie.



Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is whisked away by his professor and fellow wizard Dumbledore (Michael Gambon )to meet with Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent) to encourage him to return to his professorship at Hogwarts School. Harry and… Continue

Public Enemies: Worth Looking At, Not Worth Watching

Based on the true story of a notorious depression-era bank robber, Public Enemies brings the crime spree and police hunt of John Dillinger to the silver screen. In a film that desperately attempts to provoke any emotion, Public Enemies fails to capture the imagination, create emotional dimension or shock the senses.



In 1933, during the height of the Great Depression, John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) and his crew crisscrossed the country, robbing banks and became folk heroes. During an… Continue

My Sister's Keeper Review: Cry Meaningless Tears

Grief stricken, anger stricken, cancer stricken, My Sister’s Keeper, based on the Jodi Picoult novel, is one of the most stricken movies I have seen in recent memory. My Sister’s Keeper sloppily jerked tears in spite of inconsistent acting and overly edited writing.



When their oldest daughter Kate (Sofia Vassilieva) is stricken with leukemia and no match can be found, Sara (Cameron Diaz) and Brian (Jason Patric) make a morally dubious choice of manufacturing a perfect donor baby.… Continue
