but...Charlie I think you're kind of missing the point on how these movies are financed. Yes, they may have been big budget blunders, but theses were "bets" that were hedged against by a slate of other movies. Wild Wild West was one of ~10-12 other films that WB financed in 1999. Three Kings was released that year with a … » 4/15/14 12:52pm Tuesday 12:52pm

just jumping in here because you mentioned Burress, who to me is easily one of the best in standup right now, at least from my perspective (which may not count for much). But it's just the way he uses language in the way he tells his jokes / stories which is funny on multiple levels. » 3/31/14 12:59pm 3/31/14 12:59pm

i'm still not sure why people say Michael Bay "destroyed childhood dreams" with Transformers. It was a live-action adaptation about what was started as a line of toys turned into a cartoon. It was cars turning into robots and fighting each other. I'm not sure what sort of mythical nostalgia that somehow was lost by what… » 3/27/14 4:38pm 3/27/14 4:38pm

oh...good...the writer of Green Lantern. Yes that movie turned out to be quite the masterclass in screen writing. I can't wait for Lindelof to join this trashpile gangbang and maybe invite Dirty Mike and the Boys to finish it all off. This dumpster-fire of a movie franchise (which is what the the Alien series is… » 3/24/14 4:54pm 3/24/14 4:54pm

i read the script for this back in 2012, and it was pretty incredible, especially as someone who's read the poem, and scripture as an outsider to the faith (my beliefs lie with another major religion - happy holi btw!). the imagery that was described would've definitely made this absolutely insane visually. apparently… » 3/17/14 12:36pm 3/17/14 12:36pm

as a lifelong bears fan, i've never really had a reason to feel anything more than indifferent towards Jay Cutler. His on-field attitude as enough to bother me during games, but afterwards it was quickly forgotten. But this bullshit just infuriates me more than anything. There's nothing worse than some idiot with half… » 3/13/14 5:34pm 3/13/14 5:34pm

i really don't get all this pseudo high-brow nerd-elitism based hate against this franchise. yes, it's got a rich nostalgic history that brings all sort of sentimentalism out of us that hearken back to a "simpler" time if you will, but get over it. It's a toy franchise that has cars turning into robots. OF COURSE the… » 3/04/14 7:28pm 3/04/14 7:28pm

"wh...what is this non-alcoholic moisture falling down upon me from the heavens?! EGADS i must drive FASTER in it to avoid getting my precious BMW 3 series wet! The light has just turned red? NAY I SHALL SPEED THROUGH IT TO GET HOME POST HASTE!" - every irritating douchebag in west hollywood. » 2/28/14 8:53pm 2/28/14 8:53pm

I'm going to go with the idea that this is an action adventure movie with some form of bad guy vs good guy mentality. When I think disaster movie, I think Day After Tomorrow, 2012, Volcano...anything where the "enemy" itself is this intangible set of events that cascade and cause humans to die, and we're left with a… » 2/25/14 8:14pm 2/25/14 8:14pm

I'd have to say my favorite roles were of him playing Father Brendan in Doubt and Gust Avrakatos in Charlie Wilson's War. Doubt struck such a great balance and toeing the line of trying to figure out what was really going on in the relationship between him and the boy. And he was just a badass in Charlie Wilson. » 2/03/14 12:27pm 2/03/14 12:27pm

marketing purposes. this was purely a promotional campaign, and while there's still serious science behind it to study and that can help future space projects, waiting to give out this video gives GoPro and RedBull to remind everyone to buy their shit again. a year later. it's a gift that keeps on giving. They know… » 1/31/14 12:49pm 1/31/14 12:49pm
