Things I hate in Movies

There are 3 Key movie elements that has become rather popular in most any movie these days in one form or another.  If you have one of these Elements in your movie – Your Movie Sucks.  If your movie has more than one, it really sucks. Roller Coaster Scenes.  Any Scene where the characters are […]

The Scariest Movies

The Scariest Movies

KSL.com has an article about the 13 Scariest movies. This list is for Horror Lightweights… Which means for most people living in Utah.  But the Ogre lives in Utah and this list is something he might watch at 3 AM because he can’t sleep.  *Yawn*.  I’m bored and tired just looking at that Fail Roster.

The Avengers

The Avengers

I liked it and I didn’t like it.  First off, let me go over what I didn’t like… I hated the stupid flying aircraft carrier that turns invisible.  Okay, the Carrier was cool to a point… that point being right up till the moment it started to lift off up out of the water.  That […]

John Carter of Mars

John Carter of Mars

I’m going to pass on seeing this movie.  I have to.  You see… I watched Starship Troopers.  I watched Battlefield Earth.  Left the theater with teeth clenched, fists balled up tight, and tears in my eyes.  Hollywood ruined a couple of my favorite books.  I didn’t read comic books as a kid, I read thick […]

Immigrant Song

Immigrant Song

This is the new Title Sequence for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Many have said it’s better than the original flick. I liked the original films… so if the title sequence is this badass… I’m going to have to go see it.

True Grit vs True Grit

John Wayne plays a […]

Favorite Carmageddon Moment.

I’ve posted about favorite car movies and chase scenes… But I’ve never brought up this one. Now, I am not a huge fan of George Looney Clooney, but he does a great job in this film  “The Peacemaker”.  In this scene, we have a car chase up to the point that Clooney says “Screw This” […]

The Best SciFi Flicks

The Best SciFi Flicks

Sunshine. Alien/Aliens. Event Horizon. Pitch Black. The Matrix. Dune. Blade Runner. Serenity. Cowboy Bebop. These are my favorite SciFi flix, all for the same reasons. They all have something in common.  They each create a new universe… Some, like Sunshine, do it in a very subtle manner… Others like Dune, do it overtly and hit […]

The Eagle

The Eagle

I watched an interesting movie about a Roman Centurion who takes it upon himself to recover the Eagle totem of the lost 9th Legion.  I thought it was very well done and was quite interesting.   To a point. The film makers did a great job on the Romans.  They took all sorts of time creating […]
