The Legend Of 1900 ??

The story of a baby found aboard The Virginia a boat that transferred Europeans to America in the early 1900's, and his life of never leaving the boat. This was a pretty good movie starring Tim Roth. I've notice Tim Roth actually can act. Good for him. Anyways check it out.

A Guide To Recgnizing Your Saints ??

if your one of those people who think Shia Labeouf can only play the even stevens character you need to watch this movie. the movie is story about an accomplished author who shows you how he got out of the ghetto and what he goes back for. i remember seeing the trailer for this movie and wanted to see it so i was excited. the movie is actually only very ok. beyond labeouf acting everyone else is ok. but hey check it out anyways. robert downey jr, chazz palminteri, and my favorite rosario dawson.

new york aint nothing with out Traivs?

Stomp The Yard ?

one ?. yes this movie its pretty... ehhh. so the story follows a young man whose brother gets killed after a stomping competition, and then following his fall and rise to stomping greatness. did you get that. what i thought was funny is the movie revolves around stomping, but not once do they tell you how, or what is a good form of stomping. so in the end its just another underdog story. hey instead of seeing this watch Rocky.

will you help me protect this Travis?

Prom Night

Wow...this movie good. I've seen many bad horror movies, but this one was definately one of the more terrible ones. So this movie is about a girl named Donna whose family is killed by a teacher at her high school who is obsessed with her. Years later she is still living in the same town, with her aunt and uncle, while her stalker bides his time in prison. So we all know he won't be in there for long, and sure enough he miraculously escapes from a vent in his cell (why on earth would there be a vent that could be accessed as an exit in his cell is a really good question) just in time to crash Donna's prom, which this movie touts as one of the most important nights of anybody's life. So to make a long story short the killer shows up, starts killing Donna's friends, and I'm sure you can predict what happens. This movie was full of horror cliches and the acting wasn't very good, but the real reason this movie fell flat is the killer isn't convincing at all, and he isn't scary at all. Due to this unfortunate casting the movie becomes dull and there isn't any real fear when the killer pops up on screen which is necessary for a horror movie to succeed. Overall I would say don't rent this movie, even if you are a huge fan of Brittany Snow, or Jessica Stroup (which I am) it's not worth the ensuing boredom.

Restoration ??

I'm not a huge fan of time pieces. They are so hit or miss. this is a story set in 1660 england. A doctor is called upon by the king and rewarded for his works but the reward end up baring consequence. i can say i enjoyed this movie. Starring robert downey jr, sam neil, and meg ryan. if you lika the old european movies check this one out.

we may die tonight for king and Travis?

Alien 3 ??

this is third instillation of the alien quadrilogy. so this time ellen finds herself marooned on a planet that's is essential a prison. i love the alien series but this one is kinda on the week side. theres plot holes the size of buses in this film. the upside to it is the acting in this movie is very well done. look for Charles Dutton playing the malcom x type. i would say check this out if you like the series, or are a fan of sci fi.

they mostly come out at Travis? mostly.

In Search Of Orange Bang

i know what your thinking. is orange bang that some kind of drug? if by drug mean delicious orange drink then you'd be correct. seen mostly at southern california taquerias. it has been rumored to be here in northeran california but few have seen it. if you find a location with said drink contact me quick fast and in hurry.

thank you


Cube ??

people told me that if i like the saw movies i would like this because their the same movies. wrong. they both have surviror mentality but for different reasons. the saw movies are, are you willing to mame yourself to not die. Cube was are you smart enough to survive. i did enjoy this movie. its a story of a group of survivors that wake up in a room, and as they go from room to room they discover more of the mystery of what is going on. the movie is pretty orginal and you can see where saw got some of its material. the only downside to me was some of the actors are terrible. oh well. check it out.

its a game can't you see that. he wants use to Travis?

The Naked Brothers Band:Polar Bears ??

now if your a NBB fan like me, and i know i am you will enjoy this movie. the band kicks off their summer tour while on the road the band meets up with a friends from New Orleans. yea they go over the whole global warming thing, and katrina, but in a way that its not annoying or takes away from the movie. so like i said you enjoy the greatest band of 12 year olds every see this movie it will change your life.

if that not Travis? than what is.

Reservoir Dogs ??

so i just re watched this the other day. i think the last time i saw it was in high school. its the story of crooks who meet up after a the job they pull on a diamond store, and they try to figure what went wrong. i like this movie for the fact that its pretty original because its a heist movie thats not about the heist. my only complaint to the movie is its hard to like the character with little to no back ground, or character development. its good thought with ending you'd even the kiddies can enjoy. check it out.

nah baby this is a Travis? whats a Travis?

Glen's Take:
I agree with a lot of what you said. But you said there is no character development. I really disagree. There is no back story on the characters, but the whole movie is character development. It's tough fully developing all the characters, because it's an ensemble cast. But I think several of the characters especially the cop(Tim Roth) (who did have backstory), and Harvey Keitels characters, both had a significant amount of of Character Development.


New podcast up. 2 in a week! wowza. This week(again) we talk about Tropic Thunder, villians, product placement, and Tatoos.

I don't think I could have been more ambivalent about seeing this movie. But the Blank Crew was at Blockbuster, and I let Travis and Chris pick the movie, and they decided on this. I wasn't excited about it, but I also wasn't against it.
We started watching and surprisingly it wasn't bad. I was into it. The acting wasn't bad. The story was progressing nicely, and the main character was relatable. Besides a series of lame duck voice overs, and a plot that revolved around math, it wasn't bad. But near the end the movie did one of my ultimate pet peeves. It did the classic were gonna shit all over the main character moves. Where in a single stroke the main character loses everything. And on top of that this is when the logic started to leave the movie. I spent the rest of the movie complaining about all the inconsistencies, and out of character moments, which totally took me out of the movie. Then it all wrapped up with a semi-sweet ending.
The end result: If you like Gambling Movies, are a math nerd, or enjoy the work of Kate Bosworth, you'll probably dig this movie. If not, prepare to be moderately entertained.

Never Back Down

So most who saw previews for this movie would probably say never press play, but out of pure curiosity the blank crew decided to rent and watch this one. Everyone came into the movie thinking it would be terrible and I think pretty much everyone but me thought it was. I actually was entertained by this movie even though the plot was the same as every teenager moves to a new town where everyone is rich movie. The fight sequences were fairly entertaining and Amber Heard looks extremely hot in this movie, so that was worth it for me. This movie seems like an updated version of The Karate Kid, but if you don't have anything to do, are a bro, or enjoy ultimate fighting then this movie is worth a viewing.

Saturday, August 9, 2008


So the blank crew sat down a couple days ago, and watched the movie Otis. We had seen the preview, and all thought it looked like it could be entertaining. The movies basic plot is that there is a serial killer (Otis) who is kidnapping girls to go the prom with him. Sound interesting right? Well if the movie had been just that, it wouldn't have been bad. I'd go as far as to say that the first 45 minutes of the movie we were actually enjoying the movie. It had some laughs, some gore, and interesting characters, but about half way through the movie we realized they'd pretty much already resolved the Otis story, but there was still another 1 hour left in the movie. At this point the movie takes a ridiculous turn, and it's all down here from there. The second half of the movie was pretty terrible, and became too goofy, and unrealistic. If you saw previews for this movie and were interested, check it out, but turn it off after the first 45 mintues.

Blank Express

It's not at our usual time, but the new episode is already up! Since we didn't have an episode last week we put this one up early. This week we talk about Pineapple Express, my fucked up dog, old jobs, and the ineptitude of G4's movie reviewer.

Lost Boys: The Tribe

So Lost Boys: The Tribe, and the original Lost Boys share a lot of things in common which should be expected of sequels, but the funniest thing about this movie is that it had pretty much the exact same plot as the first one. I actually really enjoyed the original Lost Boys, so I didn't hate watching this one, but it was a little surprising that the filmmakers couldn't come up with something a little bit different then person get's seduced into drinking vampire blood, person starts exhibiting vampire behavior in front of family member, person's family member tries to kill main vampire before person turns into a full blooded vampire which was also the plot in the original. The one thing this movie had that the original didn't was Autumn Reeser who this reviewer thinks is crazy hot, so that definately made the movie more enjoyable for me. All in all I would say fans of the original Lost Boys should check this movie out, but don't expect it to be as good as the original.

Plan 9 From Outer Space??

if you have heard of this movie it is because of one of these two things. Its an ed wood movie, dont know who that is huh well he was a writer director that made crazy movie for their time. i think now his movies would be way more accepted. two it has been dubbed the worst movie of all time by just about everybody. so the movie is about aliens who make dead people come back to life an attack the living. the effects are bad even for their time. but it adds to the cheese. i really dont see this as the worst movie of all time. i guess i would suggest maybe seeing the mystery science theater version or maybe the cinema insomnia one. yea. ehhhh.

the dead are getting up to kill and those they kill get up and Travis?

Apocalypse Now ??

this is a very famous vietnam movie. in short martin sheen is sent of a mission to kill marlon brando. this movie was ok at best. the narration got old after awhile and seemed unneeded half of the time. i will give the movie that i thought it was some of martin sheen, robert duvall, and marlon brando best work and they carry the piece. so if you like vietnam movies or any of the actors i just said check it out.

i love the smell of Travis? in the morning.

Dan In Real Life

I was pleasantly surprised with Dan In Real Life. The trailers for the movie were completely unrepresentative of what the movie was about and made it appear to be another bad Steve Carrell family comedy, but this movie wasn't bad. Dan In Real Life is about a man who writes an advice column about parenting. Dan is a widower who has three daughters. The majority of the movie takes place at a family reunion at Dan's parents house in Rhode Island. There Dan meets an interesting woman in a book store and the two share a moment until the woman is called away by her boyfriend. Dan finds out later that the woman he met is his brother's girlfriend and she is also staying with them at Dan's parent's house, which makes for moments filled with ackward tension throughout the film. If you enjoy romantic comedies or are a Steve Carrell fan, then I would recommend Dan In Real Life to you, and you might even enjoy it if you aern't any of those things. Also Dane Cook delivers another unfunny but capable performance in this film.

The New World ?

wow, its movies like this that let you know how boring history can be. the famous story of john smith and pochantas. thats the plot. the movie crawls along and has shots much longer than they need to be. christian bale was even able to save this one. skip it. unless your into uber artsy crap.

savages savages their barely even Travis?

Diary of the Dead ?

why george why. this movie is the story of a bunch of film school students in the midst a zombie epidemic. this movie not a good first person camera movie, its not a good zombie, and has very little going for it. the truly only redeeming quailty is the side characters of this movie are great. Samuel a deaf amish is my favorite. uuuhhhhhhhhh other wise.

when there's no more room in hell Travis? shall walk the earth

The Prophecy ??

i actually enjoyed this movie. i thought it was original how the movie was about the fight between angels. usually its some guy fighting satan, or satan begin born into human form. the story follows an expreist now cop as he investigates a series of strange events. if you've heard of the movie its probably because christopher walken plays the archangel gabriel. which i have to say i thought he did a good job. the real surprise of the movie would be viggo mortensens role as the devil was one of the best portraits of the devil i've ever seen. you should see this movie.

tell em i coming and Travis? is coming with me.
