Lockout

Friday, April 13, 2012 1 Comment

Lockout was far funnier than I think it intended to be. Premeditated campiness aside, the story was so damn cliché and sensibly out to lunch that it caused the members of the audience (myself included) to (literally) laugh out loud on multiple occasions. If the objective of the film was to be a satirical and […]

Beginners

Beginners, a sweet, quirky film, with an equally themed soundtrack, follows a son who, in one timeline, discovers that his dying father is gay, and in another, falls for a peculiar girl. Sprinkled throughout we get a glimpse at his childhood experiences with his mother. Now, though the stories were equally intriguing, I am not […]

Dead Block

Thursday, July 14, 2011 1 Comment

Dead Block is one of those titles which makes me wish that renting downloadable content was possible. Its satirical and campy take on the “scourge” of rock and roll in the 1950s and how its evil grooves raised the dead, turning them into zombies, is humorous and well executed. However, playing through a few levels, […]

Strange was the word that kept coming to mind while watching Paper Man, the story of a besieged writer who’s struggling with psychological maladies and the relationship that forms between him and a girl who also seems to be struggling with some issues of her own. But not only was I struck by the oddness […]

Having not really played a skateboarding game since Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, I was a bit displeased with the complexity of the controls in Skate 3. I assume that the controls are fairly consistent in the trilogy of games, but I much prefer the simplicity of skateboarding games of yore. Anyways, the game offers […]

My respect for Jay Baruchel as an actor has grown exponentially. In The Trotsky, he plays a teenager who has delusions of being Leon Trotsky reincarnate (honestly, who hasn’t?). His comical character is very entertaining and quite intriguing, and so is the movie as a whole. It offers up a humorous, original look at the […]

The Informant

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 No Comments

The Informant was a quirky and humorous drama about the true story of Mark Whitacre’s years as an informant for the FBI. Matt Damon’s performance was respectable and wacky, and the music helped accentuate the off the wall theme. My favorite moiety was his character’s hilarious inner monologues which were jam packed with random information. […]
