Penny Arcade thinks Troy sucks too

May 31, 2004 at 07:05 PM

Turns out I'm not the only one who thinks Troy was a mediocre movie, Gabe and Tycho over at PA thought it was pretty lame too.... Continue reading

Review: Troy

May 29, 2004 at 05:08 PM

Homer's story of Achilles and the Trojan War, the Iliad, is known throughout the world, but movies about the tale have thus far only been of the television variety. Wolfgang Petersen's Troy attempts to be an epic in the Gladiator mold but in the end comes up short. Poor casting and a slow start doom the movie. It recovers slightly as the film goes along, but can never quite overcome it's beginnings. It's probably... Continue reading

Paul Anka hurts my ears

May 25, 2004 at 07:58 PM

This is absolutely painful and embarassing. Paul Anka has sold his soul for probably like $20 and 3 minutes of exposure. Wow that was bad. Change the lyrics of your thirty year old song with American Idol words. It reminds me of when "Billy Mack" sings Christmas is All Around in Love Actually: I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes, Christmas is all around me, and so the feeling grows...

Didn't Fantasia wear that last week?

May 25, 2004 at 07:00 PM

Is it just me or is that exactly the same top Fantasia wore either last week or the week before. If it's not, it's REALLY similar. Edit: Okay, I just checked and last week's outfit was a "dress" that where the upper half had same fit and look.... Continue reading

This just in... Mandy Moore is hot

May 18, 2004 at 10:17 PM

Holy crap Mandy Moore gets better looking every damn day. She started off cute, then got really pretty, and now she's absolutely freaking smoking. Andy Roddick must really be kicking himself right now. At the same premiere, Lindsay Lohan further spiraled into superwhoredom. She's only 17 but she's hanging out with Paris Hilton (queen of Skankonia) and her boobs are out more and more with every picture you see. There's a ton of them out... Continue reading

La Toya London is nothing special

May 12, 2004 at 09:09 PM

Shut up with all the whining and outrage about La Toya London being voted off American Idol tonight. Yes she's been good and no she wasn't the worst out of the remaining four contestants, but she's not that great either. She is a good singer and decent performer, but there is absolutely nothing special about her. She has nothing unique about her at all. Fantasia Barrino has a very unique voice (maybe too unique, I...

There is a God!

April 28, 2004 at 08:31 PM

John Stevens was FINALLY voted off American Idol tonight. He's been a big red blemish on the show's chin since the beginning. He sounds like a mediocre 1950's lounge singer and dances like a drunk paraplegic. I vowed to never watch again if he had made it past tonight. He had a unique style that might have deserved to be in the like top 20, but there was no way he should have made... Continue reading

Review: Gothika

April 28, 2004 at 11:14 AM

Rating: 3.5/5Get it from Amazon.com! Very good movie. It wasn't really a horror movie like I was expecting, but more of supernatural thriller. That's a good thing. Halle Berry plays a psychologist at a prison/mental institution who suddenly wakes up as a patient at her own facility. She spends the whole movie trying to discover what's happened and convince people of her innocence. It's well acted, 90% of the movie is focused on Halle (not... Continue reading

Review: Kill Bill Vol. 2

April 24, 2004 at 11:29 PM

Rating: 4/5Get it from Amazon.com! Another good movie. Well another good half of a movie, since it doesn't really stand on it's own. I liked this one a little better than the first, it had more of a storyline and more comedy to go with about the same amount of action. There was only one part that I didn't like. Bleep's training was lame, it seemed like a 1970's kung fu movie, only without the... Continue reading

Review: Kill Bill Vol. 1

April 24, 2004 at 10:29 PM

Rating: 4.5/5Get it from Amazon.com! Great movie. Watched it on DVD the other night and enjoyed it a lot. Wasn't really sure what to expect, I originally had no urge to watch it. It seemed pretty stupid in the previews. But Christina liked it, so I bought the DVD for her. There's not too many dull moments, the action comes early and often. Uma Thurman does a surprisingly good job in an action role. It... Continue reading

In what universe is Barry Manilow a legend?

April 20, 2004 at 09:25 PM

Another American Idol show tonight, another random ass pseudo-celebrity guest host. They repeatedly called Barry Manilow a legend and a superstar, and as the night went on I realized I only know a single song of his. I know his name very well, I think everyone does. But what has he done, at least in the last 30 years? The only song I know at all is Mandy, but the only reason I know it... Continue reading

That's not your mother, it's a man, baby!

April 08, 2004 at 09:18 AM

Okay so these commercials have been freaking me out for a couple weeks. It's not near as creepy as the Quizno's ferret fetuses, but it's definitely been weirding me out. It only comes on the Style Network and it's for one of their shows, The Brini Maxwell Show. At first Ms. Maxwell just seems odd, but after seeing the commercial comes on a few more times I started to notice something. Ms. Maxwell is... Continue reading
