…It’s Movie Monday: Oktapodi?


Oktapodi was recently nominated for an Oscar for Animated Short Film, and I can see why!

The story is quick and cute, the animation is fantastic, and it’s got a very unique style that sets it apart from the rest.

…Carmen Electra is Lonelygirl15 in EpicMovie?


If you thought Lonelygirl15 got people all hot and bothered, just wait until you see Carmen Electra’s version. The girl famous for Striperobics takes on the girl famous for being YouTube’s innocent little virgin, and I must say she does a pretty faithful interpretation. Don’t expect much from the movie, and you just might be pleasantly surprised by a slathering of funny jokes and one liners, though most likely not a huge heap of Oscar winning performances. I do hope she wins Daniel back though.

…It’s Movie Monday: Redline?

Porsche Carrera GT Wreck

They could take out all of the actors and just have a bunch of cars driving around and I still think I’d want to go see Redline. Described as The Fast and The Furious for exotics, this Daniel Sadek creation is a who’s who of the supercar world, including Ferrari, Saleen, Koenigsegg, Ford, Lamborghini, Mercedes, McLaren, and Porsche. Though I’m sure the acting by such greats as Eddie Griffin, Nathan Phillips and Nadia Bjorlin will be nothing short of Oscar worthy, it’s all about the car porn anyways. Plus, they even manage to wreck a perfectly good Porsche Carrera GT at some point in the plot line. Set for a February 23rd release date, this is going to be the car movie of 2007. Fear Nothing, Risk Everything.

…Saw III pulled out all the stops?


Yesterday, being the movie buff that I am, I went and saw the first possible screening of Saw III. How was it? Well, if you’re a professional movie critic, you’ll probably hate it. If you don’t give a crap about Oscar winning performances and you just want to have the pants scared off of you, and have to think a little bit along the way, you’re going to love it. A definite improvement on Saw II, and a fitting sequel to the original, Saw III features all of the “how in the hell did they think of that” games that have made the series a cult classic, good enough acting to keep you in the story (though admittedly, not the best acting in the world), and enough plot twists, turns, and revelations to keep you guessing until the very end. Surprisingly, I felt the shock value gore was toned down this time, and instead, replaced with edge of your seat anticipation. The scene is set, you know what’s going to happen, and the director in a sense lets you fill in your own gruesome details. That’s not to say there isn’t cringe worth moments, as there are plenty, just that the movie didn’t rely on them to fulfill its scare quota. All in all, Saw III is the perfect way to get you in the Halloween spirit, and a sure to be classic horror film for the horror film fans.
