Meet Mee-Shee!

Of all the films playing at this years Tribeca Film Festival, only one stood out. Only one called my name. All I needed was the title alone to know this was something worthy of getting me out of bed for the 11:15 am screening this past Saturday…
Mee-Shee the Water Giant!

Here There Be Sentinels…

For those, like me, not so enthused about X-Men: The Last Stand, this will either seal its fate or change your mind. It’s unfinished, I hope, but I’m very undecided about this film. So far, with Superman Returns getting bad reviews and this, this summer is looking shaky.

Expedition Everest @ Walt Disney World

Back in January, I had the opportunity to face the dangers of Walt Disney World’s newest (and biggest) attraction, Expedition Everest: The Legend of the Forbidden Mountain on the second day of Disney Cast Member Previews. The following was my initial thoughts on the journey…

Natural City

naturalcity_1.jpg

Just when I thought the Koreans could do no wrong…

Eckkk.

What a boring piece of nothing. This film couldn’t be more of a Blade Runner rip-off. Not an homage..rip-off. A lot of people must have worked very hard.. alot of money and time must have been spent…and it is a pity that this is the result. See it only if you have to see everything out of Korea, like myself.

Golden Venture

goldenventure.jpg

Very good.

Screened at Tribeca Film Festival. This film is a documentary about the passengers of an immigrant smuggling ship that ran aground near New York City in 1993. Very insightful film that follows 4 passengers and their ongoing struggles to gain citizenship, which of course they have been denied. It’s the type of film that makes you very proud of the country we live in. I swear to god I’m ready to move to France.

just take a look at these facts to understand what a complex and fascinating story this is:
286 passengers were on the ship.
262 men, 24 women
10 died.
6 escaped.
14 juveniles were released to court custody.
35 received political asylum.
55 were released on bond or INS parole.
Two received artists visas.
53 were released on a parole from President Clinton, but were not awarded legal status.
111 were deported, including 12 who found political asylum in Latin America.
Of the 111 deported, its believed that about half have returned to the US illegally.

See it if you can:

Why Video Games Rule…

If it weren’t for video games, we’d live in a terrible world… but even worse, we would live in a world without Andrew. Andrew and his pals at the GameLife show are by far the greatest folks on the planet. They’re doing what they love, captured on video, for all the world to enjoy.

I don’t do this THAT often, but you must watch the videos (most notably, episode 3) and watch it in its entirety. You must meet all the hosts. ALL of them. And Melissa is hot, no joke.

Tune in to Caprica!

Awesome news for fans of Battlestar Galactica. Note, don’t be impulsive and read this as a new TELEVISED series. It’s an online thing, but the concept is cool.

The SCI FI Channel has unveiled a full development slate of original programming. In addition, SCI FI will launch its new online broadband channel, SCI FI Pulse on May 8. Pulse will feature complete episodes of select SCI FI original series, original movies, behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes and more. Over the summer, Pulse will premiere its original content including a weekly news show, the return of the online film festival Exposure, webisode spinoffs of popular series, and user-generated programming.

The scripted series currently in development include:
Caprica – set 50 years before the events in Battlestar Galactica, the people of this society are dealing with a technology breakthrough that marries artificial intelligence with a mechanical body to create the first living robot, a Cylon.

Update: I was wrong. It IS a TV series – I can’t fucking wait.

CAPRICA
From executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick (Battlestar Galactica), writer Remi Aubuchon (24) and NBC Universal Television Studio, this new series is set over a half a century before the events that play out in Battlestar Galactica. The people of the Twelve Colonies are at peace and living in a society not unlike our own, but where high-technology has changed the lives of virtually everyone for the better. But a startling breakthrough in robotics is about to occur, one that will bring to life the age-old dream of marrying artificial intelligence with a mechanical body to create the first living robot – a Cylon. Following the lives of two families, the Graystones and the Adamas (the family of William Adama, who will one day become the commander of the Battlestar Galactica) Caprica weaves corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics into television’s first science fiction family saga.

Little Danny and the Greyscale Rainbow

dan.jpg

CHAPTER TWO: THE VAPOR CAPER

Little Danny found himself at a crossroads. Miss Pepper, the kindly school marm, was long dead and all that remained of her was a lock of her magic earlobe. Clutching it tightly, Little Danny wished a wish and suddenly, the crossroads before him merged, like a thunderous earthquake that gave off no sound – into one, single path.

It twinkled with silver polish and smelled like a fancy bathroom. Up ahead, the skies were pinkish nothing and a lone bird cawed a caw. Little Danny smiled, and headed forward down the long, and slippery path. At last, he would find the Redwood Ravine and save Squirrel the Squirrel’s family.

With a hop, a skip and a staggering shimmy – Little Danny was almost to the forest when suddenly he realized he’s forgotten to take his Lactaid. His stomach gurgled – his colon writhed. How he wished he hadn’t spent all that time lay-a-boutin’ back in Gorgonzola Gulch, where the air you breathe is thick as cream cheese.

And suddenly, unable to help himself, Little Danny let loose a green stank cloud of such wretched filth, that it took on an actual personality and became a bonifide entity. Little Danny rubbed his eyes in disbelief. “Who are you?” he asked.

“I am Dark Vapor — your inverse conscience. Made of your deepest stank, I shall curse you all your days.”

Little Danny was aflush — “But please, I must make it to the Redwood — to save Squirrel the Squirrel’s farm from being turned into a Walnut Mart by an evil conglomerate.”

“Gay much?” said the cloud, as it twirled into a tornado and ruined an entire mushroom village just for jollies.

WILL Little Danny face his greatest adversary and vanquish Dark Vapor?
SHALL Little Danny ever make his way to Redwood Ravine?

The Specials not so special

thespecials_1.jpg So for whatever reason, I decided to finally see The Specials
. I kinda knew what to expect: low budget, played for yuks, b-list talent… but I thought it would be a little more than what it was – just a bunch of folks with “super powers” talking at one another, dealing with issues and coming together as a group. I didn’t expect to see the team take on giant monkeys, but I was hoping that their powers would play a bigger role in the comedy.

And unfortunately, the comedy is scattershot. I’m not a huge Jamie Kennedy fan, but I liked his character, the Nightcrawler-esque AMOK, who is basically a horny little fuckwad. He had some funny lines, compared to U.S. Bill, who is basically a strong guy who’s dumb and runs around saying things like, “I like clouds.” Yawn… And there’s Power GIrl or something, who is this actress that you’ll instantly recognize. I think she was on IN LIVING COLOR, and she’s not bad, she’s just not very good or compelling so you want her to kind of wink out of existence.

Thomas Haden Church is our lead, as The Strobe, and actually, he was kinda interesting to watch – but he’s a little too deadpan for me… and I also think it looks like his face melting. Rob Lowe as Rob Lowe, I mean, The Weevil, was interesting but eh… it just felt half-baked all around, which is too bad because I dug the concept.

thespecials_4.jpg

There are a few things I did like about the flick:

Jordan Ladd, who played Nightbird, was kinda cute.
Paget Brewster, who played Ms. Indestructible, was kinda cute (and nekkid from the back).
— I have a thing for Judy Greer ever since I saw her wild side in ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

Otherwise, this is a fairly forgettable film. Interesting to see DAWN OF THE DEAD director James Gunn and his brother associated with this. He should stick to horror, as both this and SLITHER kinda falter in the comic delivery.

WHAT YOU SHOULD SEE INSTEAD: Mammoth. Or at least, this review of Mammoth, which is brilliant. Be sure to watch the Tom Skeritt clip.

The First Cybergosh Entry

The first Cybergosh Entry happened now as i typed the words that came before this period. Now, i can write things that will be online instead of just in emails. Like how i like American Idol. Taylor Hicks should win. He is cool. I used to vote for Kellie Pickler but she seems to be aging ten years each week. Since she has now graduated to Soccer Mom status, i only vote for Taylor. But she is still the hottest girl on there. That ugly little monster, Paris, needs to be destroyed. If only there was a way to call in a non-vote. Like, an anti-vote. I would anti-vote Paris a million jillion times. That’s what would be awesome. Hey. Wait a minute. If i voted for each person EXCEPT Paris, that would kinda be like an anti-vote. Yeah. That’s what i’m so gonna do next week if she doesn’t get the boot tonight. Yeah! I’m so gonna vote twice for each person except her so it’ll be like two anti-votes against that ugly little bug. She has to go. Ya know that feeling you get if your apartment has roaches…and you come home to your dark apartment and, just before you switch the lights on you brace yourself because you know you’re gonna see at least one of those damn roaches on the counter scurry away when the lights come one? That’s the feeling i get when i look at her face. I hate her so much. I almost hope she makes it through this week just so i can anti-vote her next time. That’s gonna be the awesomest. I like American Idol.
