A gendered analysis

Girl’s Opinion: “XXX: State of the Union” (Columbia Pictures) features Ice Cube as a rogue Navy Seals sniper who must stop Willem Dafoe from assassinating the president and restructuring the government in his perverted Jeffersonian conception. Naturally, Ice Cube does this with sweet explosions – everything he touches explodes. He farts gunpowder and pees petrol. […]

A ‘Family’ gathering

He’s a man of a 1,000 voices – or a handful of really good ones, anyway. “Family Guy” creator and voice actor Seth MacFarlane is scraping whatever is left of his vocal cords to finish off the remaining episodes of the on-again-off-again animated series. He’s pulling double duty these days, voicing principle characters for his […]

Taken “Hostage”

Want to know a fun fact? “Die Hard” is based on a book. Nope, I’m not kidding. So is “Die Hard 2.” And the same is true for the upcoming “Sin City.” Even the coolest action movies can have their roots in literature. “Hostage” (Miramax) is no different. Based on a novel by Robert Crais, […]

“Fascination”

I’m sure by now most every college student in America has seen Mystery Science Theater 3000. You know, that show where the janitor and two robots are forced to watch the worst movies ever made from an orbiting satellite. If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest holding off a little longer. Once it ends […]

“Surviving Christmas”… just barely

Oh, Ben Affleck. My undying allegiance to you and your body of work has been made known far and wide. I’ve proclaimed “Jersey Girl” to be the masterpiece it truly was, even in the face of certain ostracism. I’ve explained to as many people as possible the media conspiracy that exists against you. And I […]

A Comedy With Guts

They have ghastly pale complexions. They have horrific jaws that can tear you apart in seconds. They appear human, but are really just soulless shells or vacant bodies. They are British people. And they’re being attacked by zombies. “Shaun of the Dead” stars co-writer Simon Pegg as the titular Shaun, a 30 year-old loser who […]

The Plan

There is one kidnapping every 60 minutes in Latin America. Seventy percent of the victims do not survive. For the past 14 years, there has been one Denzel Washington movie released about every six months. I have to ask: How long will it take the bad guys to realize that King Kong ain’t got shit […]

Who’s good and who’s evil?

Dolph Lundgren has an IQ of 160. He was an Olympic athlete, speaks five languages and has a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. And yet he gave it all up. Why, you ask? Most likely because he had the chance to play one of the coolest comic book heroes […]
