  • It’s Joss Whedon, and It’s “Dr. Horrible”

    A musical about a super-hero and a super-villain brought to you by Joss Whedon and comprised of 3 10-minute-ish acts, available on July 15, 17, and 19 and disappearing from the web on July 20th.

  • Snakes on a Plane

    A movie that tells you everything you need to know in its title. And it delivers. It is fun. It is very quotable. It even has a very basic plot. All in all a fun movie going experience and it is probably better to see it in a theatre than on video as the “group” […]

  • Death is only the beginning

    Saw this article linked on Digg this evening. It basically show how they were able to resurrect Marlon Brando for a reprise of his role as Jor-El in the upcoming Superman Returns. Take a look it is neat and a little creepy at the same time:

  • Thank You for Smoking

    Finally went to see “Thank you for Smoking” which presents us with the life of Big Tobacco lobbyist Nick Nailor. Here is a trailer : The movie was very funny, entertaining, and smart. The movie had the potential to get preachy due to its subject matter but it never did and was very intelligiently irreverent. […]

  • Silent Hill – The Movie

    I went to see Silent Hill on Saturday evening and I have to say that I thought it was a good movie. Of course the two other people I saw it with completely disagree with me on that point, so your mileage may vary. I must have made up my own movie as I went […]

    Mosquito is a fan based (Browncoat) parody of Firefly. I personally cannot vouch if it is any good as they have exceeded their download limit until sometime Wednesday. But apparently it is supposed to be. Here is a link to the Mosquito site : And Here is a link to an interview with Mosquito’s […]

  • Serenity

    It’s a great movie. If you are a fan of the Firefly series you have probably already seen it. If you haven’t seen the movie, do yourself a favor and go. It’s just like the last couple of star wars movies except it is actually good, and has no aliens or jedi.

  • Charlie & The Chocolate Factory

    Wow. I thought this movie was going to be good, I was wrong, it’s great! Johnny Depp made an awesome Willy Wonka. Tim Burton’s touch was all over this movie so it was a tad darker than the original movie but it’s also allegedly more faithful to the book than the original movie. It had […]
