Jenna Andrews – “Tumblin’ Down” Video

July 1, 2010

I’m a bit on the fence about this girl. I’m struggling with the fact that “Tumblin’ Down” was written by Jeremih, for starters. Hard to believe such a good song could come from the man who gave us the delightfully insipid “Birthday Sex”. Read the rest of this entry »

C’mon Final Destination, Don’t Make The Same Mistake as 2Fast 2Furious!

June 30, 2010

I’m wondering when Hollywood is going to realize that no one really finds it all that clever when they replace letters in film titles with numbers to signify a new installment in a franchise. More often than not, it makes sequels look obnoxious and feel even more disingenuous than they already are. It’s even worse when the franchise in question has long since jumped the shark. Apparently, Final Destination doesn’t want to learn from the mistakes of others, giving us 5nal Destination, coming out next summer on August 26th, 2011 (my freakin’ birthday?! FML!!).

Trailer For The RZA-Directed Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Phoenix

June 30, 2010

I had honestly forgotten about RZA’s dream to direct an old-school-style Kung-Fu movie. I kept hearing about it, and was never really quite sure how it would all turn out. Such vanity projects by non-film celebrities can usually range from relatively “meh”-inducing, to a level of awfulness that would make Vincent Gallo look like Stanly Kubrick by comparison. The latter happens more often than not.

And while the trailer for Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Phoenix has a slight “homemade fan film” vibe to it, there’s still a great deal of charm to be found. If anything, it reminds me the new wave of Japanese gore films that have been on the rise lately, like Tokyo Gore Police and Robo-Geisha, but thankfully without the conflicting feelings of arousal and revulsion.

Black Dynamite And Seven Of Nine Want Scorpion To “FINISH HIM!”

June 9, 2010

Say what you want about there being no good video game movies, but the original Mortal Kombat flick still rocks exponentially! Dope fight scenes (especially Johnny Cage vs. Scorpion), the kick-ass soundtrack, Robin Shou’s utterly magical hair, what’s not to love?!? Unfortunately, the sequel seemed to go out of its way to sodomize the Pomeranian! And while there’s been talk of a reboot of the film franchise for years, I’ve always taken the stance of believing it would actually happen around the same time I’d come home one day to find a nekkid Scarlett Johansson in my bedroom, drippin’ corn syrup on her naughty bits! But if this video is any indication, I should start stocking up on Karo! Read the rest of this entry »
