I do enjoy a good werewolf movie.

I enjoy bad ones too, so this should be right up my alley.

Red starring the internet's Felicia Day. I'm in.

Song of the Day - Jenny by The Mountain Goats

Hi diddle dee dee. Goddamn. The pirate's life for me.

I'm *IN* Monahans, Texas. Something off of All Hail West Texas just seemed...appropriate.

Song of the Day - Danger! High Voltage by Electric Six

So, not so long ago, I thought it might be a fun idea to post a Song of the Day from time to time. It's hardly an original idea, but I'm not exactly known for my originality around here. I may or may not introduce it. I may just end up infrequently posting it and moving on. We'll see how this goes. If nothing else, I'm establishing a precedent so it's not so random in the future. To start the whole thing off, we'll go with a band from my hometown of Detroit. Enjoy!

A few quick thoughts on Hot Tub Time Machine.

 When I signed up for DISH Network recently, I received a few promo codes for free pay-per-view movies. I used one today to watch Hot Tub Time Machine. I don't have a whole lot to say about it. I mean, it's a simple premise; a hot tub transports four guys back in time to 1986. It was funny, kind of gross in a few points and Crispin Glover really stole every scene he was in.

Mel Gibson might just be a world class dbag

I'm not someone who can easily separate the actor from the performance, so to speak. If I don't like an actor or an actress or a director or a band on a personal level, then I won't have any interest in that person's work. For example, I find Tom Cruise and the rest of the Scientology sect in Hollywood to be bat shit crazy, as a result, I try like hell not to watch their movies or TV shows. This includes Cruise, John Travolta, Jason Lee, etc. I just...refuse to allow my money to support that. Another would be Orson Scott Card. Ender's Game is supposed to be an excellent sci fi novel but I'll never know because Card is a bigot and I won't read his work as a result.

Or, the way I can't look at Vince from the Slap Chop commercials without thinking of how he beat up a hooker.

I think we've all kind of suspected that Mel Gibson was a little off his rocker as well. his drunk driving incident a few years ago started to make people suspect that he was a This new thing though, this I don't think I'll be able to watch Braveheart again. Or the Lethal Weapon movies. Suddenly those movies are just going to be associated with Mel Gibson's racism. And, if he's going to mouth off like this, I won't support him. Not in any way.

Let Me In, maybe not.

It's no secret that I loved Let The Right One In. I thought it was an amazing movie and the book was amazing as well. So, it's with some trepidation that I approach the remake. It's just...not a film that needs to be remade. There is little that could be done to improve upon it.

And, I have been trying to give the remake a fair chance. I've been trying to keep an open mind, but...the trailer just...scares me. Not the way a horror movie should scare me, but the way you get scared when you know something is not going to be very good despite hoping it would be.
