The Thing... through the Things eyes

The Things - fan fiction

Interesting fan fiction popped up on the radar about none other than our favorite John Carpenter film, "The Thing" (1982).

What is intriguing about the idea is that its the film through the point of view of the Thing. We haven't read through the whole thing, but skimming over we can say that it looks to be faithful and very interesting to see what the creature(s) might have thought.

George Clooney takes his smirk to the friendly skies in Jason Reitman's excellent "Up In The Air." Clooney is Ryan Bingham, a middle-aged corporate mediator who specializes in dishing out the bad news for recently terminated employees. Our economic woes have kept Ryan rather busy, putting his people skills to the test as distraught folks try to cope with an uncertain future.

Fido plays dead like a good boy

bitter balcony, 2006, Andrew Currie, Billy Connolly, Carrie-Anne Moss, Dylan Baker, Fido, K'Sun Ray, review, Robert Chomiak, zombie Fido (2006)

The title isn’t the greatest, but it captures some film's sarcasm.

"Fido" is set in the ‘50s where we’ve already had and won a Zombie War. Humans have managed to survive and, with the help of Zomb Co., tamed and trained zombies as slaves and/or pets. Timmy’s family gets their hands on one such zombie. Apparently having the dead do your yard work is a status symbol. What we get from here is a boy-and-his-dog story. As such, the boy names his zombie, Fido.

Everybody Deserves a "Humpday", But Hopefully Not With Your Best Friend!

Fido (2006)

Little boy dares and amateur porn meet in Lynn Shelton's indie comedy "Humpday." Ben (Mark Duplass) is a young married man who enjoys the picket fence life with his low-key wife Anna (Alycia Delmore). Andrew (Joshua Leonard), on the other hand, lives a "On The Road" bohemian lifestyle that takes him everywhere. Andrew drops by old buddy Ben's house unannounced after several years of not seeing each other. While both men's lives have taken different paths, their friendship seems to stay the course in spite of the time passed.

New Karate Kid trailer out – further proof of Hollywood lameness


Yeah, you read right the new “Karate Kid” trailer is out and it looks just as lame as we suspected… or worse. We complained about the fact that this was in production in our previous post and here we are with kicking and punching proof that we were right.

We think we are officially putting Jackie Chan on the “People who should just stop” list for Hollywood lame ducks. Article(s) based on this list are incoming.



The Deadline to write crap! Deadline review.

"Deadline" (2009)

Wow! “Deadline” is one of the most annoying, flat and boring movies it’s been our misfortune to watch. Let's give the synopsis in the form of a pitch meeting for this movie, shall we?

Mr. Director: Hi there, I’m Mr. Director. What I think we need to do with this film is have an actress move into a creepy cabin – people love those – and have her watch videos of some jackass who is obsessed with his girlfriend. You with me? See, although there are no dates on the videos, somehow our protagonist watches the videos in the CORRECT order. Then she starts to lose it. You know, because that's what happens to writers in cabins.

...More shnazy synopsis dialog inside...
