Let's Talk About: Fanboys and Art

This post might not have anything to do with movies. I don't know. We'll see where my thought process takes me.

So, being confined to this speck of land in the Hudson Valley for the majority of the year does deny me certain privileges. A bevy of top tier restaurants to choose from (though there are a few winners here), at the mercy of whatever is playing in the local theater (it's usually pretty good), but the big one that a procrastination loving 20 year old feels the sting of above all others?

No XBOX 360.

It's been tough, man.

That's only partially a joke. True, I do long for my time at home so I can dive back into Skyrim or whatever is currently at the forefront of my mind, but it really isn't that big of a deal. If anything, my time away from the interactive entertainments has made me realize that they are kind of a waste of time.

My mother will be so thrilled when she reads that part.

However, there is one franchise that I will devote all my time to, one that will never be considered a waste of time in my book.

Mass Effect!

Earth comes first. Fanboys come second!

Trailer Trash: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2

It's time to root through some trailers. What sorts of wonderful things will be alluded to today?

Wait... this is a Twilight movie. Why am I here?

'attempts to leave'

'is pushed back on stage by a very large, gaggleing gang of twihards '


So, Bella's a vampire. Which, at the very least, gives reasoning to the fact that she still sounds like a lifeless, soulless automaton.

Also, what the hell kind of creepy ass line is "We're the same temperature now."? You need to brush up on your swag Edward, I'm telling ya.

Is that good? Can I go now? I'm exhausted too much energy on this film.

'gets approval'


'exits stage left'

This Ain't Your Grandma's Twilight

Dude, I cannot even being to tell you how relieved I am right now. A little over a month ago, I wrote up a piece detailing my crippling fears that The Hunger Games would squander it's excellent source material in favor of appealing to the twihards. Perfectly legitimate concerns, mind you, as both Twilight and The Hunger Games are geared towards, more or less, the same audience. But where Twilight is boring, overly melodramatic, and soulless, The Hunger Games is tight, intense, and emotional, and it is with great pleasure that I can say that the movie adaptation of it is all those things and more! With unflinching loyalty to the source material, coupled with a practically perfect performance from the lead, The Hunger Games is the first big movie of 2012 that deserves your attention.

This is not a face you wave a flame in front of!

Midnight Movie: The Hunger Games

Here I am!

Midnight with some friends!

The Hunger Games!

Dressed as Cinna!

Gold eyeliner and all!

No, I will not show a picture!

Review to come!


Conflicting Emotions

In watching the new Battleship trailer, I can't help but feel as if I've just been offered insight into Peter Berg's mind. More specifically, one the things he may or may not like.


Peter Berg either really likes Led Zeppelin...

... or he really hates Led Zeppelin.

And, dear readers, at last the world was quiet!

The Tattoos Have Blinded You

I'm about to say something radical right now.

Brace yourselves!

Are you braced?

Seriously, you're gonna flip a shit over this.

Ok, here goes...

The climatic lightsaber duel in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace isn't that good. As a matter of fact, it's probably one of the worst in the whole series.

Still here? Good, let's get into it.

He wants to kill me now.

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses!

Be that as it may, this is where I've been for the last two weeks. 

Such is the life of a theater student. 

Hey, I don't even have time to shave!!!
