Weekend Movies

I watched two movies this weekend I’ve been putting off for awhile. Chasing Amy and Dogma. Both are Kevin Smith movies, in the progression of Clerks, Mallrats, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. I’m in general not sure how I feel about Kevin Smith’s stuff. In a lot of ways it is gross, stupid…

Mel Gibson and Jesus

Heard about this on the radio last night and went and found the transcript on Fox News. Seems Mel Gibson is making a film about the death of Jesus. Apparently a very graphic film. And I say, more power to him. Its strange people are giving him crap about a movie about Jesus. To me…

Smallville stories

I’m a fan of the WB’s Smallville show – one of the few favorites I have that haven’t been canceled.

Personally I find Chole [Allison Mac] a lot hotter than Lana. And…

DirectTIVO

Got a new toy this weekend. A DirectTV satellite receiver with TIVO built in. I wanted the receiver because satellite’s picture is so much better and with the TIVO built in you get a great TIVO picture. See with a normal TIVO you take an analog TV picture, which isn’t that great to start with,…

Die Another Day

Finally got around to seeing the new Bond movie Die Another Day and I liked it. It was much darker than previous Bonds. More like the books were. You know by the time you get to the silhouetted girl credits, you know you are in a different kind of movie. Didn’t seem as over the…

Battlestar Galatica

If you can ignore the arrogant tone of a director who thinks all current SF is crap because it looks like SciFi, this is an interesting article. They are thinking of doing Battlestar Galatica as a mini-series in a documentary style. One of the things I find most interesting is they say the sets will…

Farscape comercial

I’m a big fan of Sci-Fi channel’s Farscape and it has been canceled. There is a movement on the net to save it you should participate in. The latest cool thing is a home grown commercial. Good concept even if it has a bit of an amateurish execution (the lighting is horrible and the shots…
