Fluffy Bunnies: A Review of The Devils Lettuce


 

           devils lettuce   

The Devils Lettuce is a short independent film that parodies classic 1950’s propaganda films. Directed by Adam York and written by Dave Harlequin, the film focuses on a dangerous drug called JX-375 or more commonly known on the streets as “The Devil’s Lettuce.” It appears to be a  highly addictive hallucinogen that makes you see all kinds of wacky stuff. In the film we follow the Jeffery, a straight edge fellow who is corrupted by the terrible drug and must find more and more. Continue reading

The Last Goodbye-A Review of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies


“It’s over. It’s done.” That sums up my feelings about the final part of the Tolkien saga that Peter Jackson set out to create. It’s been a long and winding journey, but it’s been a great one.

Man or Walrus: A Review of Kevin Smith’s Tusk


Kevin Smith knows how to connect. That’s been proven time and time again. Even if the story doesn’t connect with you, he, as a person, will. He’s quite possibly the most social media adept film maker at the moment. That’s actually why we even have Tusk.  Continue reading

Aside

For the past ten years we have seen more films based of off comic books than we have ever seen before.  This is great! I love most of the films that come out and I will probably see any film … Continue reading

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electro Boogaloo


The Spider-Man reboot franchise is very polarizing.  Some people loved the new direction Marc Webb has taken with the series and some think that the Sam Raimi movies should never have been touched.  I am more of a fan of the former. Oddly enough, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is very very different from both the Raimi series and the first film.

I Hate Space: A Gravity Review


gravity_ver2_xlg

When I first heard about Gravity I wasn’t too interested. It seemed like it would be a big explosion-fest and another in George Clooney’s long line of action vehicles.  I am also not the biggest fan of Sandra Bullock (editor’s note: YOU ARE FIRED, SIR). I have mostly seen her star in romantic/romantic comedy films and well, that’s the whole cast.  However, the first trailer I saw for it got me hooked.  That and it was going to be directed by the amazing Alfonso Cuaron.  He is known by some as the guy who ruined the third Harry Potter film.  However, i remember him as the director of the fantastic film “Children of Men.”  He really knows how to bring characters to life and his style of directing action puts you in the place of the person engaging in said action and makes you fear for your life not knowing what will happen to these character main or not.  That is what I was expecting and that is exactly what I got.

Ben Affleck to be Batman


Today (or yesterday, if you’re in a different time zone) (oh, hell. THURSDAY), Warner Brothers announced that Ben Affleck, of Chasing Amy and Argo fame, will be playing the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman/Superman film.

While this seems to have caused a rift in the fanbase, I’m torn. Part of me thinks, OH YES BEN AFFLECK IN THE BATSUIT AND IN SHIRTLESS SCENES WHERE HE’S ALL BRUISED. Another part of me is wondering if he can be dark and brooding enough for the role. Either way, I’m really excited about it.

You Make Me Wanna Settle Down; Elysium Review


elysium
After many crazy things this week my review for Elysium is finally here. Sorry to all for my extreme lateness. Needless to say I was extremely excited for this film. District 9, to me, was a refreshing science fiction movie that hooked me on all levels and I couldn’t wait to see what Neill Blomkamp would do next. That movie is here and its name is Elysium. But, Is TriStar’s and MRC’s Elysium worth the price of a ticket to the extremely shiny space ship? Well I would, at least, consider it. Continue reading
