Watched this one yesterday morning while nursing a hangover:



Pretty good depiction of what it would be like to live here some 3-400 years ago.

Fantastic movie in keep me entertained. I've been meaning to watch it again as a lot of my favorite quotes are in this movie.

Shot for around half a million dollars, a film that is produced and scored by the band Angels & Airwaves (a band that I have heard by name only before this and will be checking them out due to to the fantastic score), it concerns one man's isolation on a space station for 6 years due to an unexplained catastrophe on earth.

This is the sort of film that will infuriate and delight film lovers in equal measures. I found it to be fantastically shot, imaginative and worthy of another viewing even before it finished. Others will find it meandering and pretentious and quite rightly so. With nods to 2001, Solaris and Moon it won't be everyone's cup of tea but to make a film with this much scope and beauty on such a tiny budget admirable but remember I am NOT recommending it, just passing judgment. I loved it!


A much shorter doc than expected on the notorious GG Allin but due to the chaotic nature of his life it's remarkable that this was made at all. The DVD does have his final ever live performance as an extra (a loose term really) recorded the day before he died so it's a definite curio.

I didn't really learn anything new about him but it was definitely worth watching and a perverse respect for the guy is attained if you are not easily shocked that is.

DISCLAIMER. Just listening to Angels & Airwaves and vocally they sound garbage. College jock Blink 182 crap but the Love film is all instrumental so I will take that first!

Watched The Front for the first time last night. Woody Allen as a cashier who fronts for blacklisted tv writers. Several people involved with the movie including the director had been blacklisted during the '50s. Also blacklisted was actor Zero Mostel who I wish had at least been nominated for an Oscar for his role in the film.

I want to see that pretty soon.




Zombies of Mass Destruction


The social commentary on this zombie spoof film is well worth the watch.

There is a lovely torture scene that is just all kinds of funny. On one of the movie posters they call it a Political Zomedy and that's pretty damn accurate.

I haven't seen it but I saw a commercial for a 3D rerelease of the original Jurassic Park in theaters. I don't know if I give a **** about the 3D, but a chance to see Jurassic Park in theaters again has me wetting my panties.

I don't own the Criterion Collection edition pictures, I taped the film on Turner Classics. Not much of a plot but I liked the cow-punk atmosphere. Stars Chris D. as a musician on the run from a local gang. Green On Red has a too quick cameo playing in a bar. Wouldn't mind renting the Criterion dvd to see the extras.

I finally got around to seeing it myself and I love the fact that the audience hated it also. Some huge sighs at the end.

The specific scene could have been slightly better. I envisioned it a bit different. There were events I wanted to happen that didn't and the slow motion shot would have made it look more awesome.

I ended up rolling my eyes everytime Gucci Mane opened his mouth.

Really awesome. The cinematography was astounding and the plot was enticing. Starts slow but pays off.

9/10
