Why I love Hellraiser

A friend of mine recently rekindled my love of Hellraiser, Clive Barker's most well known creation. We're still three years shy of the thirtieth anniversary, and there's a remake in the works that Barker himself is involved in, but I just wanted to mention my absolute love for this film and its sequel, Hellraiser II,...

This is a raccoon with an unfeasibly large gun

Meet Rocket Raccoon, one of the supporting characters in next summer's Guardians of the Galaxy.  This is just about as perfect a way to get to know Rocket that I can possibly think of.

And ye shall know him as LOKI!

You've probably seen this already, but dear lord, Tom Hiddleston coming out on stage at San Diego Comic Con in full Loki attire, in character, delivering each line PERFECTLY is just amazing.  This clip cuts off a bit short, but the ending, where he has the crowd shout his name...oh yes, HE IS LOKI: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toPstPIcGnI

It certainly wasn't the effects, which are gory, over the... Continue Reading →

Grave Encounters 2 – A good follow-up

SPOILERS FOR GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2 INCLUDED! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! I'm a fan of the original Grave Encounters.  The movie, if you've never seen it, is a "found footage" horror flick ala Paranormal Activity, only centering around one of those "real life ghost busters" type shows.  The five man crew goes into a haunted asylum...

Big Stompy Robots vs. Godzilla-like Monsters

I love big stompy robots.  I also love giant monsters.  I am enamored with Guillermo Del Toro.  I had fond feelings for the voice of GLaDOS. Therefore, I love the new movie Pacific Rim. Watch the trailer for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2vKz7WnU83E My only question...will there be cake?
