One episode is all I could get through. At least there’s WestWorld and a friend just recommended Black Mirror. Liking both of those.

Worst Comic Book Movie Plot Device

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , on 05/02/2016 by McCutcheon

I love when I eat a sandwich with nothing in between the bread. Oh wait, no, that sucks. Well, that’s how I feel this plot-device is to movies. There are ways to make it interesting, but it’s really just lame writing. Being a lame writer myself, I know what it takes.

Spoilers Ahead!

Yeah, sure, it came out- but do you care? Is this another big-budgeted turd begging to climb back up your toilet? Get a visual of that and then proceed.

You can read the spoiler-free review here or you can listen to a more revealing look at Marvel Studios’ newest movie and what’s good about it- and not so good. Continue reading

Judge Dredd Is So Stupid It Hurts

Posted in This Movie SUUUCKS with tags , , , on 11/06/2012 by McCutcheon

I had a nightmare like this once.

I’m not kidding, this movie gave me a headache from every flaw, hole, stare and one liner this movie offers. I don’t understand how this movie was not only greenlit, but followed through and not trashed at some point in the creation process. At the very least, somebody, at some point, had to have looked over at their co-worker on set and said something along the lines of “Dude. This movie is going to be terrible.”

I can testify. Continue reading

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , on 07/02/2012 by McCutcheon

Stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen

Rated PG-13 for sequences of action violence , 136 Minutes, Action/Adventure/Fantasy

Compare to: Batman Begins (2005), Captain America (2011)

If you’ve read either of these articles I’ve written in the past month, you should know I’m a pretty big Spider-Man fan. Those are here and here. Even after what Sony did to him in The Spider-Man series, specifically Spider-Man 3, I never blamed Peter Parker for what happened. So upon hearing that a new Spider-Man series was in tow, I was in amazement (no pun) and confusion, like many people. Another one? Already? Reboot?

The marketing hasn’t been too kind either. From multiple clips and trailers, to releasing posters that are far too similar to Sam Raimi’s trilogy as well as letting a twenty-five minute version of the movie online only to take it off after a day or so; this new one didn’t seem to have much going for it. Then I was actually able to watch the film that was big-budgeted, yet had a lot on the line; thankfully, it is a solid movie and if another trilogy is spawned from this one, I won’t mind.

Freaking Comic Book Movies

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , , , , , on 05/21/2012 by McCutcheon

Just…no.

There are a lot of comic book movies these days. That’s pretty obvious, yes, but there are even more than some people probably realize because a lot of them aren’t superheroes. 2010’s Red, AMC’s Walking Dead, the ultimate display in mediocrity with Cowboys & Aliens. There’s just a nonstop flow of them and if you couldn’t tell, it probably won’t stop till Armageddon.

For good reason too, because they make a crap-ton of money. Avengers has crossed the billion dollar mark, along with all its counterpart films making well over their budget as well. Amazing Spider-man is also sure to do some pretty good business even with the exhausted sigh of many fans who are still reeling from 2007’s third installment which seemed to ruin the series’ name in the long run.
