What's better than cosplaying a character? Just paint yourself as a Mass Effect logo... Sorta.

There was a time when I used to really enjoy music, however it seems that time has passed. This picture for some reason made me nostalgic. I miss the time when music was entertaining, when it felt like the bands I was listening to still cared about the music they were making. There's still a handful of groups out there that out out quality material, it's just is sucks to the albums that come out worth listening to are so few and far between. This might be me getting old to because the bands I do find myself taking an interest in now are nothing at all like the bands that I used to like, I've mellowed out in my old age. Regardless I don't know that the downward trend in music is going to change, at least not in my opinion. Maybe someday kids will learn to be creative with there aggression but considering how over privileged kids find themselves anymore I doubt it.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is a rarity in film anymore. This movie is so fun that it really has put pretty much every horror movie I have seen in recent memories to shame, and I'm no even 100% sure I would call it a horror movie. The movie really depicts our two heroes (Tucker and Dale) as they set out to go fishing, come across a bunch of kids skinny dipping and help a girl that knocked her self out falling off some rocks. As the movie progresses, the injured girls buddies assume that she has been kidnapped by the two hillbillies in the swamp and take it upon themselves to "rescue" their friend in distress. These kids are not very good at playing hero and what ensues is a series of unfortunate events drenched in the blood of stupid teenagers in some of the most comical dismemberment I have seen in quite some time. The style of the movie has a very dirty gritty feel to it, it reminded me a lot Evil Dead 2, just had that home made fun gore feeling where it doesn't really scare you and you just want more every second of the movie. This is a great "after the bar" type of movie, it doesn't over think itself and as a result the audience doesn't need to over think either. Tucker and Dale is exactly what a gore/genre flick should be a story to switch off and enjoy with a few brews and a smile on your face. I highly recommend Tucker and Dale vs Evil to anyone who enjoys a movie with friends, by themselves or just looking to have a great time and laugh for an hour and a half of gore and micro-chaos. Cheers.
Kids movies are really quite different now from when I was a kid, and for the most part this is a good thing. It seems that companies like Dreamworks and Pixar are more aware than ever in attempting to make movies that appeal for a more vast audience. Megamind certainly falls into this type of movie, which is one of the movies strengths. As a whole Megamind is entertaining, well animated, colorful and fun. That being said there was nothing about Megamind that really thrilled me all that much either. The story was ok, but didn't really make me laugh. The characters were given enough of an identity but really didn't make me all that interested in them; and the voice work was full of actors that I really am getting tired of hearing their voice through the speakers of my tv (Jonnah Hill especially). The story doesn't feel overly original and if you want a better animated Superhero movie for kids not based off an existing comic book your better off watching The Incredibles, however if you have a child at home and want something different to watch Megamind is a worthy title for a movie night at home.

Like Vader had any doubt. And lets pretend for a second that Vader didn't know, wouldn't he just force choke the shit out of Maury in rage? Now that I think about it we need to put Darth Vader on the Maury Povich show.
I really like this, an awesome mash up of Batman's logo off of all 3 of Nolan's films. Honestly If I saw this in a store I'd probably buy it without hesitation. I need something new over my bed.

What happens when Batman and Iron Man hook up with the same woman at the same time and get her all knocked up yet somehow its both their baby because, well because they're Batman and Iron Man? This happens Bat-Iron Man! The richest drunkest robo bad guy punching tough guy ever!!! Bow to him criminals and super villains! Also, ladies, it is acceptable to throw yourself at Bat-Iron man, no one would blame you.
Everything Must Go is the story of Nick Hasley (Will Ferrell) who is a drunken lower who gets fired from his job right at the start of the movie left by his wife and spends his time sitting on his lawn drinking ludicrous amounts of PBR and making the audience bored and a little depressed. At no point did I feel sorry for this character, in fact if the choice was made to have his liver explode and Nick Hasley die a miserable lonely life on his front lawn capped off by a stray dog urinating on his cold dead body it would have improved the movie. The character does try to make a few small connections with a neighborhood kid that he trys to "enlighten" and a new neighbor that moves on the block, but both these relationships feel pity based and both seem to be blindly giving this guy a chance to disappoint them for a variety of reasons. The only saving grace I found in the movie was the casting of Stephen Root, but his screen time in the movie is so brief that it doesn't make up for anything.
If you really feel the need to watch a bad movie there's far better ways to do it, do yourself a favor and rent something like Sharktopus. At least that is supposed to be bad and you can get a few good laughs out of it.
