Quick Daily Review #108: Savages (2012)

May 22, 2015 // 0 Comments

Savages (2012) Director: Oliver Stone Two beach bums, one with a military past, and both in an open three way relationship with a hot blonde named Ophelia, start a homegrown marijuana business that becomes very successful. Said business attracts the wrong kind of attention from a very powerful Mexican drug cartel. So, together with the aid of a dirty DEA agent played by John Travolta the trio will go to war against said Cartel, lead by Salma Hayeck. Also, Benicio Del Toro licks and occasionally rapes people. Ew. Oliver Stone, a director I like generally, was one of the few people to vocally [...]

Quick Daily Review #107: As Above, So Below (2014)

May 21, 2015 // 0 Comments

As Above, So Below (2014) What do you get when you take bits of the Blair Witch Project, Raiders of the Lost Ark, National Treasure, and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, cram them into a giant blender and hit “puree”? This movie. The main character here is a female Indiana Jones type searching for the mystical “Philosopher’s Stone” which after quickly solving a few Da Vinci Code like riddles with the help of her fellow history buff friend (who illegally repairs ancient clock towers in his down time) she discovers is located within a secret five hundred year old compartment down in [...]

Quick Daily Review #106: High Fidelity (2000)

May 20, 2015 // 0 Comments

High Fidelity (2000) For many of my teenage years and into my twenties I was one of those dorky retro kids obsessed with old vinyl records and bands that, if my friends had heard of, they did not care about. I say that because when a film is made about a sub-culture, it is important to get that sub-culture right, and High Fidelity does just that, in a way that is equal parts tribute and lampoon. The Jack Black character for instance who is the very cliché of a know it all music snob constantly making his own personal “Top 5” lists (before they became the popular clickbait of the day), of [...]

Quick Daily Review #105: The Starving Games (2013)

May 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Starving Games (2013) It is a futile endeavor to review a movie directed/produced by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo responsible for such classics as Epic Movie, Date Movie, Vampires Suck, Meet the Spartans, and the Scary Movie franchise. This movie is what it is. Nothing I say will discourage those who like this sort of thing to knock it off, and those who weren’t going to see it anyway would still be wise to remain on that trajectory. That said, I write all this since I did happen to watch this movie at the insistence of someone whose identity I will mercifully withhold. [...]

Destiny Daily 5/19/15: Unleash The Queen’s Wrath as House of Wolves Releases

May 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

Today is the day! House of Wolves will go live at 12pm CT. There’s not much to post now simply because there’s only Vanguard and Crucible bounties available. Everything else will kick in once House of Wolves drops, and as you can imagine at that point I’d rather be playing the new story missions than writing Destiny Daily. So today we have a short one. I’ll edit in the Queen’s Wrath bounties once they become available, as well as the Daily Heroic story mission. Here are the bounties for May 19th: It’s All in the Head – Kill 100 enemies with [...]
