Quick Daily Review #212: The Interview (2014)

September 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

  The Interview (2014) Hey, North Korea, you really could have saved yourself a lot of time and trouble and just let this one pass. It likely would have fizzled out based on its’ own merit rather than having the help of an entire news cycle controversy to drive up sales. James Franco and Seth Rogen belong in better movies than the likes of this. They’re both fine actors, capable of fine performances, but with stuff like this they are powerless to overcome the material. This movie is basically Pineapple Express: North Korea suxxorz edition, with half the originality and none of the [...]

September 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

Yesterday, Bungie revealed the Court of Oryx, and it looks pretty awesome. If you didn’t get to see the stream yesterday, the archive of it is below. They also announced that the King’s Fall raid will release three days after The Taken King, coming to us at 12pm CT on September 18th. You have a date and a time, if you’re one of those who want to attempt to be the first to beat it, begin making plans now. They also revealed a fantastic new trailer, but I’ll save that for the end of today’s post. REMINDER: Destiny will be offline today from 10am CT to 4pm CT for [...]

Quick Daily Review #211: Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015)

September 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Let’s be honest here. You weren’t expecting this movie to be good, and neither was I. At best we were all hoping perhaps it would be passably entertaining in that way that certain movies that you watch on basic cable at two in the morning can sometimes tend to be. But alas, no. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 could be used by John Cusack’s agent as a great “before and after” illustration of what his presence or lack thereof can mean to a film. HTTM2 is really no more insipid or lame brained than its predecessor, but what it lacks the most is that bit of charming [...]

September 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

It’s September! One week from today patch 2.0 will release and Destiny’s first year will come to an end, just one day short of a full year.

You should also cap out your Vanguard or Crucible Marks, as you’ll all of your marks will be converted into [...]

Quick Daily Review #210: Ex Machina (2015)

September 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Arrow on JoBlo.com had perhaps the best quote on Ex Machina I could find anywhere when he wrote about this movie “Ex Machina was Frankenstein meets The Island of Dr. Moreau by way of Basic Instinct.” which just about sums this flick up for me. Quirky introspective Caleb (Domnhall Gleeson) is a twenty something intellectual who works as a coder for a big corporation that runs this universe’s version of Google, ran by a guy (Oscar Isaac) who is basically the serious dramatic version of Lou (inventor of Lougle) from Hot Tub Time Machine. Nathan is said CEO’s name, and he is the [...]

Quick Daily Review #209: Skyfall (2012)

August 31, 2015 // 0 Comments

Skyfall (2012) Putting Bond in jeopardy right at the beginning of a movie is a device that has been used in a handful of Bond films such as You Only Live Twice, and Die Another Day. It is an interesting way to get the story going full speed ahead, and so it does here as this movie opens up a great chase scene on top of a moving train which ends with James Bond presumed dead, and the person he was chasing making off with very sensitive data which puts secret assets the world over in perilous danger. Now can a seemingly off the wagon, and alcoholic James Bond reform himself and save the day? [...]
