Found on YouTube: Firstly, Jurassic Park has many more continuity errors than are featured in this video. The film has a ton. It’s discontinuity heaven. However, I don’t think some of this video’s critiques are valid, namely the ones about Hammond having to be present for all the Mr. DNA intros, about the cars visiting [...]
Forgot to include this on my list of interesting films for 2013 (and I’m sure I forgot plenty of others), but the trailer for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 was recently released by Sony Pictures Animation, and it looks interesting: I wasn’t impressed by the trailer for the first one, but was pleasantly [...]
Since I talk about the ending of the film here, this post contains SPOILERS. It probably won’t make any sense to someone who hasn’t seen the movie anyway. The Cabin in the Woods was funny, clever, and quite innovative. But, overall, it did not hold up for me because I didn’t understand the ending. As [...]
I’m three months behind on this, so I’ll split it up into three posts. So here are the movies I watched for the first time in October 2012: Antitrust This 2001 corporate thriller stars Ryan Phillippe (remember when he used to be in movies?) as a young way-to-cool-to-be-an-actual-nerd genius programmer and Tim Robbins as an [...]

Here are the movies I’ll be interested in checking out in the upcoming year: Oz: The Great and Powerful March 8, 2013. Mixed feelings about this. While I think the overall idea could be a ton of fun, I’m worried it will turn out generic and uninspired. But I’ll give it a chance. The Croods [...]

Today (or yesterday, I suppose, since it’s 2 AM) I spent about thirteen hours in the movie theater watching a Lord of the Rings Extended Editions trilogy marathon. About twenty to thirty people showed up; I thought it would be more popular, but I guess thirteen hours is a rather long time. I thought it [...]
A small collection of clips from the upcoming musical film Les Miserables were uploaded to YouTube a couple days ago. For example, this one: My thoughts: Musically, sounds good. The singing sounds good, save for Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, who’s rapid vibrato makes it sound like she’s singing while driving over a bumpy road. I’m [...]
I saw the latest animated feature from DreamWorks recently, Rise of the Guardians, and I had the theater to myself, woohoo! Here are my thoughts. I think they’re spoiler free. I can’t promise, though. The movie tells the tale of the mythical Jack Frost, who is summoned to become a “Guardian” to protect the children [...]
Not a review, just some thoughts. A few SPOILERS below, so don’t read if you plan on watching the movie and don’t want spoilers. I saw Disney’s latest animated feature Wreck-It Ralph today. I was expecting good things from all the positive reviews I had heard about it. But… Perhaps I’m overanalyzing it (a favorite [...]
I am a bit late to today’s news of geeks and I don’t really have anything interesting or intelligent to say. But I do have some boring mundane things to say. 1. I’m cautiously optimistic about more Star Wars movies. I don’t know why George Lucas didn’t make more movies sooner with how much money [...]
