Comments Off on MTV VMAs: Water Cooler Edition – (Nearly) Flawless Feminism & Nostalgic Nineties
The only thing you absolutely need to know about the 2014 MTV VMAs is Beyoncé. No one does it like Beyoncé. 100 years from now when historians look back at the most influential artists it will be Beyoncé. Don’t believe me? Beyoncé was receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The Beatles, David Bowie, Madonna, Janet Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, U2, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, now Beyoncé. Last year JT won and did a mind blowing set in which every song I said, “Oh yeah, I remember this one!”. Beyoncé has had #1 hits since 1997 (she was 16). There are any number of songs to draw from. Instead her performance was only from the album she surprise released in December. And you couldn’t take your eyes off the screen.

Comments Off on Review: Kick Ass 2
2010’s Kick-ass was a movie not without problems, but what problems it had were easy to forget because it was actually fun. It melded over the top violence and profanity with an upbeat and optimistic “holy shit we’re superheroes” tone which gave the movie a unique energy, and a couple of brilliant casting moves made the whole endeavor…. well fun really is the operative word here.
It’s 3 years later both in our world and theirs and Kick-Ass 2 is here and you know what? It holds up pretty well!

Comments Off on Matt Watches Bad Movies: Movie 43
So I decided to start watching bad movies again and I figured a good place to start would be with a recent movie which had a funny as hell trailer but turned out to be pretty much the worst thing in the world. The films tagline is “once you’ve seen it you can’t unsee it” and it’s true, just not in the way they intended.

Comments Off on Carrie Trailer Gives Away The Plot
Chances are you have seen the orginal 1976 film version of Carrie, or maybe even read the book by Stephen King. If you have, the watch away. If you haven’t, know that this trailer gives away the majority of the plot. Still, you probably are at least familiar with the original, right??
I don’t know how I feel about this trailer. Kimberly Price has two movies under her belt and they are great and good respectively. On the other, I feel this is a needless remake.
On the one hand It’ll hopefully be pretty cool to see the rampage played out with modern effects (as long as it’s not all CG) but on the other, I feel like this is a needless remake when the original effects work perfectly well.
Also, on the one hand, I really like CHloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore for Carrie and Margaret, they’re both talented actors. On the other, I feel like this is a needless remake when Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie were both Oscar nominated in the original.
