Film Review: ‘Poltergeist’ Starring Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris

poltergeist-remake-posterWhat happens when legendary horror filmmaker Sam Raimi joins forces with Gil Kenan, the director of Monster House to remake one of the greatest horror films ever made? A soulless train wreck of a movie.  This “haunted house” remake doesn’t come even close to the originality of the 1982 version.

94: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron

If Sid from Toy Story grew up to be John Ford and then filmed a Smokey & The Bandit reboot at Burning Man it might look like Mad Max: Fury Road. Or maybe it was a fever dream.

Hard to say but either way director George Miller has turned in what is arguably the most unique Hollywood blockbuster in a generation. So allow us to spoil it for you, won’t you?

It’s Reel Spoilers #94 – Mad Max: Fury Road.

You’ve been warned.

Juan’s Rant: Put Your Damn Vapor Cigs Away!

Electronic-Cigarette-KR-808A-Vaping, it was thought to be a freedom enjoyed by the persecuted smoker. It was thought to be safe, and yes, even some thought it to be cool.
Well, Juan says you’re all full of shit!

As a former smoker, I detest vaping. It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. I literally laugh at folks who carry around a magic marker filled with some flavor of the week like Ass Crack Sweat, or Fromunda Cheese.

Sorry to say, but all you entrepreneurs who think you’re tapping into a goldmine by opening your Vape Shop, you will soon learn these very valuable lines, “Would you like fries with that?”
Yes, every red-blooded American feels it’s their God-given right to be able to sit in a restaurant, or at a Cardinals game and puff away on their magic dick stick. (That’s what I call them)
Well, sorry to say, but just like smokers, you guys are all screwed. How dumb can you be to think that inhaling some chemical is not harmful?

Film Review: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron

Max_Mad_Fury_Road_Newest_PosterEven if you haven’t seen any of the Mad Max films, there’s still a good chance you’ve watched or heard something that the series had a direct effect on. Filmmakers like James Cameron, Guillermo del Toro, and David Fincher cite the series’ impact on their works. Rap artists such as Tupac and Snoop Dogg referenced the films either in their music videos or lyrics. Computer gamers would be hard-pressed not to recognize the impact on the Fallout universe.

Now, 30 years after the last film in the franchise was released, Max Rockatansky is ready to make his return, albeit this time in the shape of Tom Hardy. Mad Max: Fury Road may not tell much of a story at all, but I don’t think the intended audience cares so much about tiny things like plot and character development. The Mad Max world is brutal, truculent, and fueled by adrenaline. And it’s this formula that’s not only going to appeal to the original audience, but bring a whole new fanbase into the universe.

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ Starring Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow

Pitch_Perfect_2_poster It seems like every summer, you’ll see at least a couple of films dealing with college students and their experiences. These movies range in topic from sports (We Are Marshall), growing up, (American Pie 2), fraternities (Animal House, Going Greek), or a plethora of other topics.

When the original Pitch Perfect came out, it took the young audiences by storm. It was a solid blend of young stars and comedy, and the musical compositions were brilliantly executed. After making $113 million on a $17 million budget, it was inevitable a sequel would come out.

Fast forward to 2015, and the result is Elizabeth Banks’ debut as director of a feature-length film. With the bulk of the core cast returning for the sequel, Banks and company deliver a sequel that adheres to the same formula as the original, but doesn’t seem to come out quite right.

Mayweather vs Pacquiao: The Flop of the Century

There’s a sucker born every minute.

fightIf that phrase is true, you can put me down as one of those suckers, those dumb asses, who watched Floyd Mayweather Jr. dance around the ring, playing paddy cake with Manny Pacquiao. There were 16,507 suckers who actually attended the event in Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. That attendance alone generated a $74 million paid gate. The event that was billed as the Fight of the Century was a catastrophic flop, as far as action goes.

Mayweather looked like he was better suited to be a marathon runner with all the laps he ran around Pacquiao. The Wall Street Journal was on point when it said, it’s good that we have 85 years left to top it. Some people, who threw down $100 to watch the fight on pay per view, have since filed a lawsuit due to Pacquiao’s fighting with a bad shoulder.

Viewers are crying foul, feeling that they should get their money back since Pac Man didn’t make his shoulder injury public knowledge. I may have thought the fight sucked ass, but I’m not asking for my money back and filing a law suit. The only person that is more of a douche than Mayweather, is someone who would sue over the outcome of a fight. Really? I mean come on. How much of a cheap ass do you have to be?

Summer blockbuster season kicks off in full blockbusteriness as Avengers: Age of Ultron finally hits the big screen.
