Posted in Whatever with tags , , on 04/16/2014 by McCutcheon

Way to catch up to the times, huh?

If you love pictures, but are bothered by words (Big or small), then Tumblr is the place for you! It’ll pretty much just be a collection of pictures that are awesome enough to share but wouldn’t necessarily something to put into a post here. So if you like the stuff you see here, you’ll like the stuff you’ll see there. Enjoy.

Spider-Man Villains to Look Out For

A couple years ago, I wrote an article with a hint of wishful thinking masked by quiet skepticism. I was weak.

In it, I gave a quick rundown of a few villains that didn’t seem like likely candidates for the antagonists of The Amazing Spider-Man movies, seeing as how the writers normally gravitated toward the human and the scientific. I didn’t say realistic, I said scientific, okay?

But since the Avengers films, all bets are off and the ridiculous and ‘out-there’ is becoming the standard. With next month’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 hitting theaters, we’ll be seeing another Goblin, Electro, and the Rhino. And from there, the sky’s the limit it seems.

Here’s a quick list for those looking to familiarize themselves, even if they don’t make it into a Sinister Six movie. Continue reading

After viewing The Raid 2 and coming to the conclusion that if life were an Action movie I would not survive, I bring you some thoughts on Gareth Evans’ blood-soaked sequel.

In short, yes, you should go see this. Unless you don’t like la violencia in which case, The Muppets sequel is still out. Continue reading

If there’s one thing I love, it’s barbeque. If there’s another thing I love, it’s the smell of gasoline (The forbidden fruit). But if there’s only one more thing I can say that I love, I guess I’ll say that I love good art.

I don’t necessarily mean weirdo art house art where you’re meant to analyze and interpret what you think the artist was trying to convey by crapping on a mattress. I really just mean art. Like a guy took a pencil, a brush, or whatever; put it to a sheet of paper and created something really cool. That’s what Yoji Shinkawa does and if you don’t know him, you should get to know him.

Movie Review: Oculus

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , , , , on 04/11/2014 by McCutcheon

oculus

Stars: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso, Garrett Ryan

Rated R terror, violence, some disturbing images and brief language, Running time 105 minutes, Horror

Compare to: Sinister (2012) Mama (2013)

The Slasher subgenre may have worn out its welcome being that there’s only so many moviegoers to cheer for a blade wielding madmen, it seems to have only fueled the supernatural route to Horror.

With good performances by all cast (This often feels rare in Horror) and a decent story, what’s wrong with the movie may be how the tale itself unfolds. You’ll see what I mean. Continue reading

Of all the movies you love, which roles in them could have been replaced by a better or more fitting actor. We discuss this, the strangeness of Schwarzenegger, and if anybody could be Durden better than Pitt. Continue reading
