The Latest Announcements

The Weatherman - January 31

I've lost track but this has to be the quickest turn around from theatre to DVD. I've always stated that I really dislike Nic Cage, but over the last seven years or so (I know, odd number) he's slowly grown on me, much like the athlete's foot I've acquired since going back to the gym. Also, The Weatherman was filmed in my hometown of Chicago, right downtown, and if you look really closely, you can see my sweet ass walking down Wabash Ave. as Nic Cage gets smothered with a milkshake. Good times, goooood times.

Hustle & Flow - January 10

Everybody and they baby's mama simply blew their collective loads over this flick. To me, it's just another urban flick contributing to the dumbing down of our culture. Damn, I'm sounding like Bill O'Reilly and shit over here. I've liked Terence Howard in his other movies, especially Crash and would like to see him in another meaty role. The kid from Road Tripshows up and bums me out because he probably gets laid a lot more than I do.

Oliver Twist - December 26

It never ceases to amaze me how celebrities and entertainers in general (including sports) can get away with murder (Jayson Williams, Robert Blake, OJ), and in Polankski's case, molestation. Yeah, I know he made The Pianist, I know he made Chinatown and Rosemary's Baby, but why is that a free pass, get of jail free card? Priests are rounded up every day by the choir load and prosecuted for taking advantage of their position (hardy har) and the innocence of youth. I could go on and on, but there it is, my rant for today and I'm cutting it short as to not completely bum you out and bore you to death .
