Watchmen was ok

Maybe I’m too close. While watching this movie a part of me was upset anytime a favorite line or moment was NOT in the movie, and then often I felt the movie made mistakes my being so slavish to the comic. Quite a contradiction. But now that I am 24 hours removed from the film […]

What is Eagle Eye about?

Eagle Eye starring Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan opens September 6th but the title is so dull and uninspired no one knows what the movie is about. I asked some people what they thought the movie was about: “I assume it’s about a sharp shooter. A Desert Storm movie maybe? Or an assassin movie. Or […]

The Dark Knight… now with very minor complaints!

Yesterday I raved about the Dark Knight. At one point I said this: “This movie seemed to do everything right.” Seemed. It wasn’t perfect. Spoilers and Nit Picks after the jump…

The Dark Knight

I loved Dark Knight, which is without a doubt the best Batman movie ever. It might be the best super-hero movie ever, though I need to sit on that decision for a while, because I give my personal arbitrary rankings a lot of weight. No Spoilers until after the jump… Its hard to talk about […]

Manipulation via Video

Firstly a quick review of the Dark Knight: WOW! Secondly a plug: Tonight at the UCB Theatre, Will and I perform some improv. We’ve done “Brother Hines” shows before and they are always fun. Last summer we had a short run in Cagematch which we made videos for, so last night when I couldn’t sleep […]

Hellboy 2: Pan’s Golden Army

First, let me talk about my reaction to Hellboy 1. I didn’t like. I wasn’t interested in Hellboy’s relationship with the firestarter Liz, and a I really didn’t care about Hellboy being accepted by the non-freakish public. Not surprisingly – neither of these are plots in any of the Hellboy comics. The sequel has a […]

The Incredibly Decent Hulk

I enjoyed the new Hulk movie. Its way better then the Ang Lee Hulk movie, but that’s not saying a lot. The Ang Lee Hulk movie was just an excuse for Ang Lee to use his panel edits that litter the movie. I read that he was in talks for numerous comic book properties before […]

Wall-E makes Pixar 8 for 9

Other then Cars, which I found very dull I have liked every Pixar movie. But when I saw the trailer for Wall-E it looked boring. Then I read an article where it talked about how the movie had minimal dialogue. That didn’t sound too appealing. So I decided early on I would pass on this […]

My life in a darkened room and a short discussion of Hancock

So I haven’t written anything since I got back from Vegas. Mostly because I have been busy, but also because I have been busy with not so interesting activities. The only thing remotely interesting I have done lately is seen a whole bunch of movies. In a very short span I saw Hancock, Wall-E, The […]
