The Bourne Ultimatum is the third and final installment of the trilogy about former CIA assassin Jason Bourne. I must say, I was blown away.

1408 Pleasantly Surprises; Receives 3/10 Berating

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 18. Jul, 2007 | 2 Comments

I was expecting one of two things, either a supernatural demon/spirit filled journey into the depths of hades, or a slasher film. 1408 was neither (although closer to the former than the latter). Think The Shining meets Identity. The Good John Cusack one-mans most of the movie (based on a short story by Stephen King) [...]

Don’t you hate it when that list of 10 movies you’ve been dying to see suddenly escapes your memory as soon as you enter Blockbuster?

Finally, Bruce Willis Says It

Bruce Willis Tells Hollywood to Shut Up. That’s right, you heard me correctly. I’m so tired of Hollywood telling people how they should live their lives, what’s right and wrong, and how much better they are than us. I mean, just read my brother’s post about Sheryl Crow’s stupidity. Bruce, keep rocking my socks off. [...]

Gyaaaaarrrr! Time for another edition of Ye Old Top Fiver, ya land lubbers! I saw Spidey 3 on Saturday at a brand new IMAX theater with 12 thousand jigawatts of Dolby sound (I’ve never figured out what other kind of sound there is besides Dolby) which got me all worked up in a fit about [...]
