Super

Every now and then you come across a quirky, independent comedy that, due to its comedic vibes and peculiar charm, leaves you with a sizable grin. Super is not one of those movies. At first I was hopeful, the cartoonish (possibly hand drawn) title sequence was fun and it set a tone that was very […]

Safety Not Guaranteed

Safety Not Guaranteed

Thursday, June 14, 2012 1 Comment

I’m always hesitant when it comes to independent, quirky comedies. Just the term independent conjures an image of something unpolished and unrefined. The truth is, most of the independent comedies I have seen have been really charming and quite hilarious, and Safety Not Guaranteed, a film about time travel, is one of those movies. It’s […]

Nintendo Pumps Up the Beats with Launch of Rhythm Heaven Fever

Monday, February 13, 2012 No Comments

Simple to play, but hard to master. That was certainly one of the mantras of the beat-keeping Nintendo DS title, Rhythm Heaven. With this week’s launch of Rhythm Heaven Fever, players can now take the beat-keeping from tapping and sliding on a small and portable touch screen to pushing buttons on their Wii Remote and […]

Rayman Origins

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 No Comments

Michel Ancel and team have done it again, by going in reverse (sort of). Rayman Origins is an absolute blast from the past as far as the platforming elements are concerned, but there is so much more happening in this game, with its hand-drawn characters, and environments, its wonderfully oddball musical score, and its surprisingly […]

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 […]

Micmacs, a story of revenge, love, and randomness, was fun, quirky, and comedic. Furthermore, the music was delightful and there were some rather clever moments. Now, it would’ve been nice if the movie had let the audience in on the intricate revenge plot, as there were moments where I found myself uncertain of what was […]

Shadows of the Damned

When you’ve got Suda 51 involved in a game, you know you’re in for a filthily quirky experience. Well, Shadows of the Damned was definitely filthy, as it was flowing with penis jokes, sex jokes, and more penis jokes. On the quirky side, however, it had its strange moments, but it wasn’t as rampant as […]

Benny & Joon (Blu-ray)

Thursday, April 14, 2011 1 Comment

Review: Benny & Joon was at the same time wonderfully strange, and strangely wonderful. The movie follows a man who is dedicated to taking care of his mentally ill sister, when a quirky Johnny Depp moves in with the siblings and quickly works his way into their, and my, hearts. Now, I wouldn’t deem this […]

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. […]
