Why waste hard earned cash on a series that you’ve been collecting for a year, but really don’t like?  You can take that 3 or 4 bucks and buy something new and exciting!  DVD’s, Video Games, Comics, the occassional book…check here for your one-stop listing of all the stuff you should add to your collection this week!  Note that I’m not going to list all of the stuff coming out…just the good stuff!

Paul’s Horror Flix: King of the Hill

King of the Hill

I don’t know…maybe it’s just me, but I’d never think to call 911 if I didn’t know where I was. I mean, if it’s from a land line, no biggie, but from a cell phone? That just seems pointless. Yet it happens so often in movies.

Oh well, I digress…by the way, MILD SPOILERS for anyone still planning on seeing this flick.

Dissenting Opinions: Super Bowl Commercials

Hey IOM’ers! Just like most of you, yeah, I watched the big game. Every second of it! But whether you watched for the game (which unbelievably topped last year’s) or the commercials, some of those 30 second nuggets were treasures, while some were just awful. So one has to ask: “What does it take to make a good/funny/memorable Super Bowl ad?” I have to admit, I tend to focus more on the good ones, whether they be funny, entertaining, or just plain memorable, as opposed to the bad or boring ones, which I tend to just block out of my mind. With that being said, here are my choices for the winners, those that successfully entertained, made me laugh, or just plain stuck in my mind. Also, as a note, I left out the movie spots…that’s a whole other deal. Enjoy!

Bud Light – Cutting Costs

This one was good, made me chuckle pretty well, and I’m a Miller Lite drinker! If you’ve ever been in these types of meetings, how many times have you thought to yourself how great an ice cold beer would be, and there it is…and this idiot dares to suggest getting rid of it to cut costs?!? He deserved his trip out the window. Hell, most people in those meetings do!

The ObjectiveIt gets a little confusing to me what the two guys who put together The Blair Witch Project have done since.  They haven’t done a film together since then, but every film one or the other has done says “From the creator of the Blair Witch Project.”

To clarify, Eduardo Sanchez has done Altered (great little flick) and the upcoming Seventh Moon.  Daniel Myrick has done Solstice (good cast, boring flick), Believers (from WB’s Raw Feed line), and now The Objective.

Paul’s Horror Flix: Killer Movie

Killer Movie

Killer Movie is kind of odd.  First off, it’s called Killer Movie, so at first I thought it would be a parody, like Disaster Movie or any of those pieces of junk.  Turns out, it’s about a reality show being filmed in a podunk town that uncovers a series of slasher slayings surrounding the town’s claim to fame, its hockey team.

So….why is it called Killer Movie?  It’s not about a movie (well, except for a movie star who’s in town researching a role while the reality show staff is filming) at all.  I mean, it’s a movie about a killer, but still.  It would be like calling Star Wars “Space Movie.”  Eh…it’s a small complaint.

Overall, Killer Movie is an enjoyable, better than average DTV.  The acting is very good, which isn’t really surprising given the talent.  The film is filled with faces you’ve probably seen somewhere before, like  Jason London (from Mallrats!), Paul Wesley (Fox Family’s Fallen mini series), Nestor Carbonell (the mayor with eyeliner from The Dark Knight), J.C. Chasez (ha!), and Leighton Meester (from Gossip Girl).

The Super Bowl is an Exercise in Pain

It’s true!  I mean, let’s think about it.  You watch the Super Bowl with people, more than likely some drinking…

Super Bowl XLIII

It’s true!  I mean, let’s think about it.  You watch the Super Bowl with people, more than likely some drinking will be had.  Let’s say you don’t drink, you’re still more likely to drink more soda/water/whatever.  But, seriously, half the fun of watching the Super Bowl is the commercials.  So, for four or five hours you don’t go to the bathroom.  Sounds painful to me!  No wonder so many people call out on the day after.

Anywho…

I don’t remember the last time this happened, but two movies are showing their very first trailers this Sunday during Super Bowl.  And they’re pretty big flicks!
