Home Video Review: Fanboys

FanboysI’ve seen the trailer for Fanboys on a lot of DVD releases lately.

Being a Star Wars nerd (and sometimes George Lucas apologist) I was intrigued, and I vowed to catch the movie at my earliest opportunity.

Not very long ago (yesterday) in a retail store a couple of miles from my house…

Blu-Ray Review: My Bloody Valentine 3D

mbvbr

Anybody who has been following B.O.M.B. should know I’m a horror movie freak, especially slasher films.

They should also know I’m not very fond of remakes, and I have a weakness for 3D films.

My predisposition for 3D glasses and slasher films overpowered my aversion to remakes, so I took it upon myself to pick up a copy of My Bloody Valentine 3D for review.

Logitech Releases Harmony Remote Adapter For PS3

Harmony Adapter

Being a happy Harmony Remote user for a couple of years now (in case you don’t know, they are the coolest line of universal remote controls on the planet), my only complaint has been the lack of bluetooth/Playstation 3 support.

Instead of having the Lord of the Remotes, One Remote To Rule Them All, I’ve had to have the employ an Undersecretary of the Lord of the Remotes to handle my blu-ray watching needs… the Sony Bluetooth Remote.

That means two remotes, where one would be nice.

Logitech just unleashed a handy dongle that takes the infrared signal from your Harmony and converts it to a bluetooth signal that can be used by your PS3. Plug the dongle into the wall (it thankfully doesn’t use a USB port), synch the device so your PS3 recognizes it in the future, update the software on your remote… and voila!

You’ll have a remote that hobbits will try to throw in a volcano.

Home Video Review: Zack And Miri Make A Porno

zackmiri

Kevin Smith’s films have always spoken to my generation. Something about the blending of taboo, social commentary, and pop-culture references that cater to people growing up in the eighties seems to click.

As Mr. Smith has matured, so have his films and his audience. While some may argue that ‘Jersey Girl’ didn’t play to his strong points, and spent too much time dwelling on realizations of relationships, parenthood, and responsibility… the film was still very much aimed at an audience that is now facing those very same life events. It was the first of his works to move away from the relative comfort of his familiar set of characters and settings.

‘Zack and Miri’ once again steps outside of the ‘Askew-niverse’, the land of Jay and Silent Bob, but explores some very familiar territory for his fans.
