New Year’s Resolutions for a Better 2011

We all want to believe in a better life, a sustainable way of living, and a semi-guided path to follow our dreams without the soul-crushing monotony of a mundane existence. But let's face it: for most of us, these goals are about as likely as Kevin Smith winning a Best Picture Oscar (or, Christ, even… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions for a Better 2011

The Top Ten Worst Films of 2010

Like any year in the exciting and ever-changing world of film, 2010 has certainly had its miserable stinkers. Over the past 12 months, my love of cinema has been bashed over the head at an alarming rate with worrisome additions to theatrical schedules.

SuperDPS Review of Black Swan

I've never been much of a fan of ballet. I admire the art form, I'm astonished by the skill of the performers, but, like opera, I wouldn't be particularly fond of sitting in a theatre and watching an entire show.

I can't bring myself to be apathetic because--in all honesty--there aren't many issues that I would consider myself to be "on-the-fence" or "*shrugging my shoulders*" about. (Don't you love how we can use those little action… Continue reading What the fuck are we doing? Examining the Political Climate of 2010

Knight and Day

Tom Cruise has always been a pretty cool guy. Perhaps one of the biggest stars in the world, if not the biggest (not height-wise, he's quite small), he's a great actor, one who fully embodies his roles and gives memorable performances, always seeming to play likable characters who we love to watch on the big… Continue reading Knight and Day

I Love Movies, But I Hate Yours: Jonah Hex

Hands up if you've heard of the DC comic book Jonah Hex by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga! No one? Yeah, thought not. Me neither, and my only knowledge of the comic book is purely from the new film adaptation directed by Jimmy Hayward. And my God, is it bloody terrible? Yes.

The Karate Kid (2010)

"Kung fu lives in everything we do," Mr. Han says to young Dre Parker. "It lives in how we put on the jacket, how we take off the jacket. It lives in how we treat people. Everything is kung fu." Right, well that's all good and dandy, sir, but please explain why you're saying this… Continue reading The Karate Kid (2010)
