Millers Crossing ??

this is a Coen movie. i do have to say i enjoyed it. so this is a mobster movie but with little violence. my boy gabriel byrne is it and i usually enjoy his work, so no surprise there with this one. i actually cant tell you too much about it with out giving things away. it s a good mobster movie so if you like those check it out the cast is pretty amazing and so is most the acting. my favorite part i will say is the shoot out to Danny Boy. so yea check it out.

lession learned Travis?

battle of shaker heights ??

this independent movie starring shia lebouf my be his best work. bold statement. well this was his only movie were i did feel like he was playing he even stevens role he so famous for. with that said lets keep rolling rolling rolling what. so this movie is essentially how life can be tough and confusing for teenagers. I'm sure we've all seen a few of those movies but with this one it feels reel between the dialogue and acting. this story comes to life. and magic. yea. so if your a shia fan, loved your high school years, or like shiri appleby. be sure to check this movie out. or do it anyways. i mean if you were cool you would do it.

hey hey hey hey don't you forget about Travis?

Freaked ?

i do not know how to categorize this movie. my first thoughts were its a kids movie, but then it was too dark, and the swearing. this movie stars alex winter or bill from bill and ted movies.its a story of a failed actor who becomes the spokesperson for this toxic crap and he goes to a freak show and the owner of the show randy quaid, turns alex in to a freak by using that toxic crap. yea, think about that. so this movie is terrible on many levels but at the same time i did have a couple laughs. look for bobcat goldthwait as sock head. but yea unless you are super bored our want to watch just a band movie, i would skip this one.

freaks and Travis?

soylent green??

this is a story about the future. a future where the world is over populated and pollution is making the earth barren. the movie stars charleton heston who at his best is ok. charleton is a detective investigating a murder and finds out a horror able secret. thats the plot. for the movie being set in 2020 everyone still dressed like the 70's. overall i did like this movie and you should check it out if you like the scifi.

soylent green is Travis?

Dogs of War ??

i was very sceptical about this movie. why, christopher walken playing a mercenary. yea. this was a movie made some time in the early 80's so chris is very young. it also stars my boy tom berenger, but then you can't make a mercenary movie with tom. so the story is evil dictatorship mercenary unit sent in to take him out, but theres another reason people want the leader dead. but that a secret until you watch this fine piece of American cinema. so yea it was good, if you like christopher, tom , or mercenary movies you like this one too.

we were Travis?

Into The Blue?

this movie. i dont even know where to start. i will say this if your gonna watch this movie get your favorite hard drink and take a shot every time the word "bro" is said. something i was suprised by was chris gave this movie a bad review being jessica albas in a bathing suit the WHOLE time. but this movie is pretty terrible. story of a guy who hunts for treasure and his shark expert girlfriend. they find treasure but they also find a sunken plane full with drugs and then the bad guys come looking for it. The upside to me was josh brolin was good as the bad guy. other than that this is just a good movie to watch if you have nothing to do.

cage goes into the water, Travis? is in the water, our Travis?

Vanishing Point ?

im sure theres people out there that would kick me in the junk for giving it only one ? but hear me out. vanishing point is a story of an excop/exrace car driver/ exmotorcycle driver. wow huh. that makes a friendly bet that he could make it to san francisco from denver in 17 hours. well off he goes and gets the cops attention right away and the movie becomes a 50 minute car chase. i will give this movie the character of super soul was pretty cool. so unfortunately this movie only gets a ? but if you are a fan of the original gone in sixty seconds or maybe even bullet you should check this out. or you could just watch the "show me how to live" music video from audioslave its clips from the movie making it a short version.

live fast die Travis?

The Brief Wonderous Podcast

Oh yah. I almost forgot. New episode is up. This episode talks about Hellboy II, Kevin Costner, Blinky, and how gay we are. A little added note. The episode kind of ends at about 35 minutes, but we just kind of rambled on for another 10 minutes, we do give a bunch of random updates about the podcast, but that's about it.

Hell is Eternity In Bruges

So we see a movie every week, but some times there are too many movies and certain people *cough*chris*cough* don't want to see some of them. In Bruges was one of these movies. All in all this movie was pretty damn good. It's essentially a Hitman movie, but not like one you've ever seen before.

Without giving too much away. The movie starts off with two guys who are in Bruges after a Hit. And that's half the movie. The movie takes a turn about half through and changes quite a bit, but it's a very logical change, ane made a lot of sense. this movie is probably least action-packed action movie ever, but the real charm of this movie is the charcters. They were all great especially the midget actor.

I highly recomend renting this movie. Even if you hate Colin Farrell, don't worry, every one else makes up for it.

Ed Gein The Butcher Of Plainfield ?

so this a movie based on the "true events" of Ed Gein. those of you not educated in american serial killer history ed gein was the original leatherface. back in the 1950's in plainfield, wisconsin. he would wear peoples skin, dig up bodies for the cemetry, and who knows what else. so being that he is my favorite serial killer if i had to pick, i was looking forward to this movie. the movie also stars kane hodder, which i like the guy and he can act, he was just to big for the part. that and he was the best actor in the movie, makes it hard for me to root against him. so this movie only got ? but you if do like ed gein, leatheface, or kane hodder you should check this picture show out.

che che che ah ah ah Travis? Travis? Travis?

The Ten

So Travis and I decided to browse Starz on demand to see what movies were currently playing when we came across the movie "The Ten." I noticed that it starred Paul Rudd, Jessica Alba, Adam Brody, and Winona Ryder, so we decided to check it out. The movie is basically ten stories that are loosely based on the ten commandments. The movie had it's comical situations (a woman falling in love with a ventriloquist's dummy) but overall it got tiring and became sort of a labor to watch. By the 8th story I was ready to turn it off, but I wanted to see how it ended so I didn't. If you have the time and the patience to watch this movie, then I'd say it is worth a viewing, if anything just to see super cute Jessica Alba, but if you want to see a movie with a similar premise but far better, check out "Four Rooms," which features four stories, two of which were directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarrantino.

Heima ??

so i didnt have too much to do yesterday so i was flipping through the channels again and came across Heima. I read the description"documentary of the 16 shows played by sigur ros in their home Iceland". hmmm i thought i do know people who love the sigur ros. i then decided to watch the movie. i do have to say that the band is extemely talented, and sing very little in english which is ok. still it was a pretty good movie. check it out if you like music documentaries, or sigur ros.

Thursday, July 10, 2008


so ive just been dying for movies to watch and this one was on the sundance channel today. so its starts of with a woman who is looking for a musician and man she had slept with and then the man gets deported. oh this is a foreign film. so she finds the man only for him to be like "i dont love and i wasnt deported i ran away". the rest of the film is her downward spiral and so on. the movie is pretty good and i only got lost in the tranlastion once. oh the movie also stars asia argento who is the daughter of the famous horror director dario argento. she also stared in george a romeros land of the dead. so if you like foreign flims, independent films or asia argento check this one out.

its the music of the Travis?

Gotham Knights

I'm probably the only comic book geek on the planet that really doesn't care about the Dark Knight. That said I checked out this sort of prequel/link between Begins & DK animated movie anyways. I really had not read or seen much about it. Someone told me about it a couple months ago and I watched a trailer on YouTube, but had pretty much forgotten about it till I saw it up on a Torrent site on Monday.

Originally I thought this was going to be an animated movie with a continuous story that was a solid link between the two movies. It turns out it's actually a series of vignettes written by several comic writers and David Goyer. My first thought while watching this was that it is exactly like the Animatrix, but for Batman, and after reading some stuff online, that is apparantly what it was supposed to be.

Some of the stories were good, and some were kind of terrible, as one might expect from this sort of thing. Each story is done in a completely different animation style. The first one stood out to me because it was obviously done by the people who did Tekkonkinkreet, who's animation I loved, but the story left something to desired. The best story/animation combo was the story about Killer Croc. The last story with DeadShot was interesting as well. My biggest problem with this was that sometimes they took the anime treatment to far. In one story in particular they change Bruce Wayne so much that for the first 5 minutes I wasn't even sure it was Bruce Wayne.

As a final result. This movie was worth watching. Definately not something that you need to own. You would probably be interested in this if you are one of those people that is counting the days till the Dark Knight, really like Batman, or Just a fan of well produced anime. But rent, don't buy.

Day of the Dead ?

ok ok the first movie to get one ? how bad could a straight to dvd remake be. very bad. strike one straight to dvd, strike two nick cannon i mean its bad when vhing rhames acts circles around you, and strike three it was so bad i think it gave me cancer. so i would still suggest seeing it if you are a die hard zombie fan-romero fan so you can be as upset as i am. so yea. theres more i could say but i really dont want too. uhhhhhhhhhhh.

dont kill him hes still Travis?

This sums up what was wrong with the movie. At one point a Zombie did a flip and then crawled several feet on the ceiling and then did another flip to the ground and killed some dude. yah.
