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.

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.

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.

In Case You Missed It: Forgotten Silver

silverI have an undying thirst for documentaries.

Few film genres draw me in as deep, and I easily spend most of my viewing time with historical or educational fare.

Good documentaries fascinate me, while the awful ones have me arguing with the television screen, debating ‘factual’ information with an unresponding bundle of pixels.

And then there are the ‘mockumentaries’: ‘This Is Spinal Tap’, ‘…And God Spoke’ (I’ll hit that one in an upcoming article), and the subject of this story, ‘Forgotten Silver’.
