Review: LEGION


If you, like the filmmakers, imagined that Legion would be a cool, stylistic and biblical movie about the end of the world similar to the great Constantine, you had better turn around and go see Youth In Revolt instead, because at least Youth In Revolt is a comedy on purpose.

Legion is easily one of the dumbest movies I have ever seen, filled with characters you don't care about, minus one or two great ones that die trying to help the other useless people.

Review: THE BOOK OF ELI


For a movie that's plot centers almost entirely around the bible, it's comforting to know that The Book of Eli is not really about religion. The Book of Eli is about faith, and believing. I think it was Ron Glass in the fantastic Serenity that said, "Why when I talk about belief, do you always assume I'm talking about God?" Great line.

A Bit About "Cop Out"

Hello faithful reader(s).

Much like Wilder and his early viewing of Funny People, I have seen Cop Out, directed by Kevin Smith.

I, much like Wilder, had to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

All I can say, the movie is great and a lot of the women in the audience liked it too.

I also got to shake Kevin Smith's hand and tell him I enjoyed the movie.

Needless to say, I'm super giddy.

More to come later.

Lord of Kiwiland


Our favorite not-fat-anymore director, Peter Jackson, has been knighted by the country of New Zealand.

They cited "services to film" as their excuse, but the real reason, kept in a locked box in the deepest dungeons of Barad-Dur, is that Jackson was jealous of Ian McKellan, Ian Holm and Christopher Lee, and threatened to film The Hobbit films in Austrailia instead if they didn't make him just as awesome.

Regardless, the man deserves to be called a lord and have all sorts of lavish things thrown at him since Kiwiland was just a silly little island chain down under the ozone hole until the Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed there. One decade later (dear god it really has been almost a decade since The Fellowship of the Ring was released, hasn't it...) the Kiwi's are on the map as one of the best film production locales in the world and tourism has soared in the land down under the land down under.

Well done Sir. You, my friend, bow to no one.
