Posted : 11 years ago on 8 December 2006 08:39 (A review of Jay and Silent Bob 6: Clerks II)

A calamity at Dante and Randall's shops sends them looking for new horizons - but they ultimately settle at Mooby's, a fictional fast-food restaurant. Free from his dead-end job (and lodged in a new one), Dante begins to break free of his rut, planning to move away with his clingy fiancé. Dante is ready to leave the horrors of minimum-wage New Jersey behind, but Randal - always the more hostile of the two - starts to become overwhelmed by his own rancor.

Carnivale: The Complete First Two Seasons review

Posted : 11 years, 1 month ago on 6 November 2006 09:05 (A review of Carnivale: The Complete First Two Seasons)

1934, America. The Dustbowl. A fugitive named Ben Hawkins finds refuge within a traveling carnival comprised of a tarot card reader and her catatonic/telekinetic mother, a blind mentalist, a bearded lady, and conjoined twins, amongst others. The carnival is owned by the mysterious and unseen Management, who has designs on the young Hawkins, for the boy is concealing an untapped gift: he can heal the lame and raise the dead--at a price. Ben also finds himself disturbed by cryptic and prophetic dreams, which he shares with a Methodist preacher in California, Brother Justin Crowe. Brother Justin, convinced by his dreams he is following God's will, has begun to practice his own extraordinary talents, although the preacher's plans increasingly lead to disturbing and tragic consequences. In this "last great age of magic," Ben Hawkins and Justin Crowe are moving toward a great conflict between Good and Evil, although it not yet clear on which sides these men will stand.

24 : Seasons 1-5 Box Set [DVD] [2001] review

Posted : 11 years, 1 month ago on 6 November 2006 08:56 (A review of 24 : Seasons 1-5 Box Set [DVD] [2001])

Federal Agent Jack Bauer can't afford to always play by the rules. As a member of the L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit, Jack must stop bombs, viruses, assassination attempts, and usually save someone he cares about at the same time. Every season of this series has 24 episodes, each unfolding in real time following a consecutive hour in one very bad day.

Feast Unrated review

Posted : 11 years, 1 month ago on 4 November 2006 10:28 (A review of Feast Unrated)

The premise is very simple a bunch of strangers are locked in a bar for the night as monsters try and get in. There really isn't much more to it and that is where the beauty of this film lies. I have heard that Marcus, one of the writers described this as a movie that you start watching on TBS at 2 am and you don't finish, which is a great description for it.

The performances are pretty strong because the actors seem so relaxed in them. The best performances come from Balthazar Getty, Duane Whitaker, Clu Gulgar, Krista Allen, and Josh Zuckerman. The work of the Thomas L Callaway the cinematographer is great, especially in the final showdown scene, some may complain about not being able to see but the red color that covers the scene is great. The final shot of Krista Allen behind the rising sun is just beautiful, even if it is only a simple horror movie.

The main credit goes to John Gulager, whom despite all the "drama" shown on Project Greenlight, has crafted a really enjoyable film. He took all the raw elements of the production and crafted just an amazing final product. This is a movie that I will suggest to people who just want to enjoy themselves in a theater.

Dragon Tiger Gate (Special Edition) 2 disc set review

Posted : 11 years, 1 month ago on 4 November 2006 10:00 (A review of Dragon Tiger Gate (Special Edition) 2 disc set)

Dragon Tiger Gate is a martial arts academy established by three youngsters, Tiger Huang , Little Dragon Huang and Black Dragon Shi. Adopted as children by kung fu master Huang Jianglong, they aspire to impart the spirit of Chinese martial arts to the world. The traditional 'bun mountain' contest on Cheung Chau island. Every year, athletes and martial arts experts scramble to get to the top of a bamboo tower covered with lucky buns. The three heroes join the contest, but each is spurred by a different motive. One girl presides over the contest. She is Luosha, daughter of Shibumi, lord of the notorious and legendary Japanese underground empire Luosha Gate. A master of the Shaolin school of "Muscle-bone Strengthening Classics," the ruthless, sadistic Shibumi wants to rule the world. The sight of contestants cheating to defeat their opponents enrages Tiger, who defeats everyone to win the gold medal hidden at the top. This upsets Shibumi's plan to rig the game and reserve the medal for one of his Chinese gangsters. He orders the Hong Kong gangs to recover it in three days. When one of his senior gang leaders Mao Kun disobeys his orders, Shibumi has his whole family wiped out. The only survivor is Mao Xiaoling, who is rescued by Black Tiger, and brought to Dragon Tiger Gate. Luosha mobilizes all her forces to attack Dragon Tiger Gate, but they are no match for the heroes. Luosha has a chance to kill Little Dragon, but she couldn't bring herself to do so. Fascinated by the appearance of a worthy opponent, Shibumi challenges the heroes to a duel and even tries to recruit them into the underworld. To help his three disciples escape, Master Huang stands up to Shibumi, but is killed. Tiger's legs are broken. Xiaoling disguises herself as a man and takes the heroes to Shaolin Temple in China. She entreats an enigmatic monk to treat their injuries. At first, he refuses, but relents after Xialing attempts to hurt herself. He cures the heroes, then teaches each of them a unique fighting skill. Meanwhile, Luosha ventures alone to Shaolin Temple to track down Little Dragon, but when she finds him, she falls in love with him and ends up teaching him Shibumi's "Muscle-bone Strengthening" techniques. The other heroes master the arts learned from the Shaolin monk, and the three return to Hong Kong to avenge their master's death. Luosha realizes that Little Dragon will use the skills she taught him against her own father, but she fails to stop him. The final showdown between good and evil is a spectacular battle that makes the walls of Dragon Tiger Gate quake.
