Quick to make a deal, slow to care about the feelings of others. Don’t say his name three times or you’re asking help you won’t want.

Before Tim Burton and Johnny Depp decided to team up permanently, and before Alec Baldwin came across as one the angriest guys in the business…there was Beetlejuice. Or Beetlegeuse, whatever. Nobody says the B-word, c’mon. Continue reading

While the more humanistic villains in Horror can be typed, the more fun monsters, the main stars unfortunately can’t really be typed. They’re monsters, ghouls, and animals. There’s not really a personality there to fit in with the rest of us mortals. Or is there…?

Still, no. BUT! There is an overall goal for them isn’t there? Yep. Their methods and missions are generally to survive or kill. Sometimes to survive by killing, leaving us with a familiar frame of mind that Type Theory can get a hold on. Here’s a list of the other Horror freaks that have been typed.

Happy Halloween too. Boo. Continue reading

MBTI: Captain America- ESTJ

CAPA026001_400

Democrats! Republicans! Sportsmanship! Books!

No matter what the generation, there’s only one hero that best represents the American spirit. And in a world that’s increasingly cynical and embittered, there’s only one type to lead us out of such a mess with unbridled idealism of what it means to be decent, average, and normal! Woo!

The Captain is ESTJ, as his leadership, morals, and old-school rhetoric are that of not only one of the most common types, but one of the most by-the-book types as well. Aside from wearing the American flag, of course. Continue reading

MBTI: Watson- ISFJ

The dutiful servant, if you need a helper or assistant that can work long hours without complaining and never try to hog the spotlight and steal credit out from under your nose- these are your guys. Or girls.

I’m not even joking. A lot of people wouldn’t think of the above as being a good thing to be known as a servant or something of the like, but for their to be leaders, we’ve got to have followers. Not blind and unquestioning per se, but loyal and persistent in their activities. If this doesn’t describe Watson, he cannot be type.

Once again, not an INFJ. Continue reading

MBTI: BATMAN- INTJ

Long overdue, aren’t we? Having typed the others, and Arkham Origins having just been released, it was time to give Batman his due. “The World’s Greatest Detective” is fairly obvious in his type yet people will argue anything won’t they? INFJ? Batman? Extroverted Feeling second? Psh. This guy’s M.O. is beating information out of people and putting them in prison.

While his character is a tad unrealistic given his wide range of perfected skills, he still fits the profile of “master planner” to the fictional tee. Oh, so much to cover. Continue reading

Movie Review: Bad Grandpa

bg

Stars: Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll

Rated R for strong crude and sexual content throughout, language, some graphic nudity and brief drug use, Running time 92 minutes, Comedy

Compare to: The Jackass movies, Borat (2006)

After taking a break from the sketch/prank/hidden camera bits Johnny Knoxville became so popular for in the Jackass series, he’s back and he’s working with a bit more of a story now. Not much of one, but story isn’t really meant to be the strong point here as much as the everyday civilian is thrown into an unexpected situation that they can’t un-experience.

Lucky for us, it’s not happening to us an we just get to enjoy it. Continue reading

Movie Review: The Counselor

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , on 10/25/2013 by Taylor

Counselor

Stars: Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt

Rated R for graphic violence, some grisly images, strong sexual content and language, Running time 117 minutes, Drama/Thriller/Crime

Compare to: Layer Cake (2006), The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)

It seems when Cormac McCarthy writes anything, be it a novel or screenplay, he creates characters with a dark past, a very intense present, and a world where anything can happen. The themes are there, the dialogue is real, and the film can be as thought-provoking as you want it to be.

Now, a beginning, middle and end? That’s where things get a bit difficult to explain. Continue reading
