You just point the damned thing at Earth. It's not rocket science.
Still blown away by director Alfonso Cuaron's ability to use some of the most amazing special effects to ever grace a screen to elicit emotion from his viewer and use it as a tool to tell a story as apposed to simply try to impress the world with what his special effects team can do.
Just one final thing. The…
Cutie hates Bullie?
I was expecting a charming documentary about a charismatic and outrageous couple, but ended up with one of the most honest looks at long term relationships I've ever seen. Sweet and painful all at once. Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but I believe that there are probably more 30-40 year relationships like this one then not.
The couple's very existence is solely dependent on one's sacrifice throughout their lives while the other acts obliviously selfish…
America knows war. They are war masters… they are teachers, great teachers.

Logically the time we live in should make it harder then ever for the government to hide the truth behind events in foreign lands because of technology alone, but something evolved where the powers that be don't even have to worry whether the "truth" is even hidden or not. It's become apparent that the opinion of the loud and charismatic carry more weight in public…
Changing times? Fuck that.
My third film from director Hun Jang and also the third that seems to have an underlying plot of friendships forming under extreme circumstances. This one however that theme is even more in the forefront then the two others. It involves a North Korean spy played by Dong-won Kang and a South Korean agent played by Song Kang-ho who I've become quite a fan of.
The film starts off as a spy thriller, segues…
We found this in his hotel and that sure ain't no G.I.Joe!
Unlike the other films in the franchise this one is a direct sequel to the last, The Demon, and actually has some returning cast members. I'm still not sure if that's good or bad however. Not only are the puppets still good guys, but Rick (Gordon Currie) and Susie (Chandra West) have taken to affectionately addressing them as "buddy" and "little guy" on occasion.
The first 10…
I don't wanna die...
I might have become a Johnnie To fanboy as I'm not sure if I'm being completely unbiased when viewing the director's films anymore... or maybe he's just that damn good. On this rewatch of one of my favorite 2013 releases I realized that the contrast between Sun Hong-Lei's in-your-face performance and Louis Koo's quiet calculating performance might be the strongest quality of the film. The manner they play off each other in completely different styles is brilliant.
Also how damn awesome are the Mute Brothers?
You smell like a baby prostitute.
It seems like a different world in an alternate Universe. Lindsay Lohan was kinda cute, didn't look like she was on crack and people thought she had a promising film career ahead of her. To be fair, even though she's great in the part and the rest of the cast as well, the real reason this film is so good has less to do with them or even director Mark Waters and…
I have been touched by your kids... and I'm pretty sure that I've touched them.
I think part of the reason I love this film so much is because it's like living a bit of wish fulfillment... teaching kids about real music while showing total disregard for the garbage they are currently listening too. Sabbath, Zeppelin, AC/DC, Hendrix... this is music. Of course I say that knowing full well that I haven't let a new band into my…
Hi, everyone. I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs!
The film almost lost me in the beginning as it felt like there was 5 musical numbers during it's first 15 minutes with none of them being particularly memorable, but in the end the story and characters won me over. I liked the fact that the film plays with movie tropes that were firmly established by Disney itself building up towards an ending that fools you into thinking predictability is about to occur but something a bit special happens instead.
Rick Myers, you must animate the Decapitron.
I have no idea what is going on in this franchise anymore. Parts 1 and 2 followed each other rather well... then part 3 was a prequel that seemed to change some history... and that brings us to part 4. We're in the present again, at the same hotel as the first two films... but the continuity seems to completely ignore the two first films. It seems that Andre Toulon was never…
I told you not to go out tonight didn't I? Every time you go out this kind of thing happens.
There's two real stars to this film. First you have Joe Spinell for his bat shit crazy performance as Frank Zito and the other star is the technical prowess of one Tom Savini who's glorious work here had to be the main reason director William Lustig didn't bother submitting his film to the MPAA because he knew the…
