The Bourne Ultimatum: 1/10 Berating

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 06. Aug, 2007 | 6 Comments

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. The Good The cinematography, score, directing, acting, stunt effects, and plethora of settings were all superb. This movie did something that few movies are able to accomplish, especially in this [...]

Snow Patrol Again; This Time 1st Row

Posted by The Gimcracker in Music on 05. Aug, 2007 | 4 Comments

The show was shorter but the venue was much better than when we saw them in Chicago at The Aragon. They still interacted with the crowd just like in Chicago and they still played their songs with amazing energy and spirit. This was the last show of their North American tour, and possibly their entire [...]

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) [...]

Beratings Cometh

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 11. Jul, 2007 | 3 Comments

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? I’ve decided to start rating the movies I’ve seen, not because I think anyone actually cares what my opinion is, but because I find myself frequently forgetting what they were [...]

“Jay Leno’s” Jerry McGuire-esque Memo

Posted by The Gimcracker in Television on 28. Jun, 2007 | 1 Comment

I just received a mass email containing a message that reminded me of the way Jerry McGuire wrote that memo, or mission statement, that totally went against the grain and was a huge risk on his part… and got him fired. The email is apparently a message written by Jay Leno himself, although I highly [...]

Cruise vs. Germany

Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies, News on 26. Jun, 2007 | No Comments

Tom Cruise is making a new movie, and as much as I hate to admit, it sounds awesome. It’s about Col. Claus von Stauffenberg who was involved with a World War II era plot to kill Adolf Hitler and overthrow the Nazi regime. It’s called Valkyrie, it’s directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects and [...]

2007 Movie Picks (Thus Far)

Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies on 12. Jun, 2007 | 9 Comments

You shouldn’t write posts like this because they become completely dated in like a month. You’ve seen these brand new movies, heard these brand new songs, or found this awesome brand new technology, but you forget about when you discovered LaserDiscs and you wrote a post about it as if you had discovered gold (of [...]

Finally, Bruce Willis Says It

Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies, News on 16. May, 2007 | 2 Comments

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. [...]

It’s Official, Yot Becomes Main Toon

I remember back when my paladin was edging closer and closer to the coveted level 60 by questing in the highest level places like the Plaguelands and Silithist. Now he’s sitting in Shattrath City drinking ale with a bunch of drunken Scryers. I got him all the way to 70 and bought him a nice [...]

The return of THIEF IN THE NIGHT

Posted by The Gimcracker in Music, Stuff On The Internet on 10. May, 2007 | No Comments

‘s website. LOL n00bs, L2P. I was going through some old projects and came across this mock-up of a new Thief in the Night website I was working on, when, alas, they broke up. Obviously the domain is no longer there, but I have hosted it on my site for archival purposes. There’s not much [...]
