I didn’t know what to think when I heard this was being made, I loved the original 2 Predator movies. Then those atrocities came out, Alien Vs. Predator and it’s sequel and possibly more, I quit counting. Really fucked up the whole series for me. I loved the premise, and I loved the video games, but those films were budget garbage. So how are they going to reboot the series and fix it with this?

I figure the title of this film comes from the William Blake poem entitled “Tyger”.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies

Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?
And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Sean Combs as Record Exec. Sergio Roma, playing a parody of himself, and is possibly the funniest character in this film. After that, well its all gravy and cheese.
The Social Network, the story of how Mark Zuckerberg single handedly created TheFacebook.com franchise and sold out his friends and ripped off anybody he could to do so, with his “hacker” skills, php and superior intellect. Awesome.
Josh Brolin plays Jonah Hex, DC Comics cowboy whatever blah. I can’t believe this piece of crap cost $47 Million to make.
Knight and Day, a non-stop action romantic comedy staring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Yeah, sounds awesome….
Man I really didn’t expect much from this film, considering its a 30 second short skit on Saturday Night Live. But I will say this much, I loved it! Read the rest of this entry »
OK, well another huge disappointment on a hangover Sunday. This movie started off great, and then turned into a zombie flick and finally I turned it off. FUCK.

Stolen from IMDB: A woman who has an elaborate scheme to propose to her boyfriend on Leap Day, an Irish tradition which occurs every time the date February 29 rolls around, faces a major setback when bad weather threatens to derail her planned trip to Dublin. With the help of an innkeeper, however, her cross-country odyssey just might result in her getting engaged. Hmmm… yawn

So, I normally watch each film twice, unless they are truly horrible, so I can be slightly more objective with my rantings. This is one film, I didn’t need to. This little gem, that I had never heard of before my trip to the movie store earlier, really spoke to me. I’m not much for Cinema UK, but recently that seems to be the only place where a decent film seems to be coming from, so I gave it a shot. I am not disappoint. Written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, we have a coming of age tale, that not only surprises, but it does it so subtly you could have swore you predicted every second of it. Such a treat. To top it off, because of their other works, such as The Office, Extras and The Invention Of Lying (Gervais only), I suspected a comedy. Instead I was drawn into the 1970′s, into a small town called cemetery junction….
