I meant to rent “Videodrome.” You can’t always get what you want. SO sometimes you get something kinda like what you want. And it surpasses your expectations. My movie friend and I watched another Cronenberg film: “Dead Ringers” (1988). The basic story is about a pair of identical twins. Jeremy Irons plays both. I haven’t [...]

Whoah. Sorry, I have been gone for a bit.  Hey look at that. I know, it’s a hella big picture. Whoever said Asian men are not attractive was wrong. Dead wrong. This poster proves it. A lady-friend of mine is real keen on Andy Lau, and this influenced my first decision in choosing the Filmzilla [...]

I’m sorry, my faithful readers. I have been lax  in the blog production. The days of summer and four blogs a week are gone for the moment. It’s a lame excuse, but it’s the only one I’ve got: I have been ears deep in scholastic endeavors.  So, instead of ignoring you all, I am going [...]

“Sometimes the thing that is the most difficult is the thing that you have to do.” The direct Swedish translation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”(2009) is: “Men Who Hate Women,” or “Man Som Hatar Kvinnor.” I’m told it makes more sense if you follow the whole trilogy. I don’t speak Swedish, and I [...]

This is an older blog & a quickie movie review. If you’re wondering what might be fun, cheap, and off the beaten path to watch this week. Do you like fucked-up documentaries? Well this one’s a winner… “Kiss my Snake”(2007) is about snake boxers from Ban Kok Sa-Nga in Isan, Thailand. There is a whole [...]

“I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees, and misty memories of days gone by. We could never see tomorrow. No one said a word about the sorrow…” Sung by Al Green (1972) and written by Barry and Robin Gibb in 1970. Solara: “I hate it here.” Eli: “Then change it.” Strictly speaking, [...]

Nicollet Village Video has closed & moved. They actually transformed into Filmzilla. They have every Godzilla, Mothra, Baby Godzilla, King Ghidora, Rodan & Harryhausen film known to man. I just threw that last one in there. If you don’t know who Ray Harryhausen is, you best take your ass to school. Jason and the Argonauts.(1963) [...]

“Show your patriotism by buying a bracelet” This was the actual copy of text from a Facebook advertisement. I saw it yesterday and today. Is it just me, or are advertisers getting more stupid?  Do they think the American audience is that dumb/medicated/not-paying-attention? Oh wait. Mickey Knox, (therefore, I have reason to believe this originated from [...]

I gave in, to the hype. Some of my most trusted technical advisers were saying good things about “Inception.” I felt like I missed an important day of class. I had to see it if I wanted to participate in the discussion. I had to see it, sober-ish.   Not like “Avatar.” Too wasted, too quickly in the theatre.  [...]

If your name starts with “Q,” you better hang on to that shit.  If by some bizarre cosmic coincidence, you acquire the nickname “Q” (esp. if there is no letter “q” in your name [Claudia, you lucky duck,]) you should try to retain that throughout your life also. Q is a bad-ass moniker.    Which leads me [...]
