Take a lame "plot" story, add a well know action-hero actor, and a Hollywood movie studio that listens to its fans - yes, really, it actually happened!

Mix it all up and you get:

Review: X-Men: The Last Stand 
Saturday, May 27, 2006, 06:32 PM - Review
They say the third time is the charm ... Boy, were they ever wrong, based on the third X-Men movie, X-Men: The Last Stand.

Pretty good action sequences (other than jerky jumping and flying stunts), special effects that mesh perfectly with the live props, and a decent storyline, unfortunately, don't offset the lack of emotion and lackluster directing/editing.

Worth it for X-Man and comic book fans. For everyone else, wait for the DVD and rent it.

At least they won't be making a 4th movie. Hopefully ...

Overall: 3.5 of 5

Reviews: RottenTomatoes, Rolling Stone

Watching: The Electric Playground

Movie Review: Poseidon 
Saturday, May 13, 2006, 06:14 PM - Review
Oh the humanity! (ok, it's an old cliche :)

No, I'm not talking about the story - I'm talking about the Poseidon movie itself!

Like the other blockbuster movies this year so far, the action sequences and special effects are amazing (especially the opening title sequence (Yes, for those who have watched the movie, that whole "around the ship" sequence is computer generated!)). But the acting and plot are easily forgotten. Had they spent 1/10th of the CGI budget on the script and actors, the movie would have been better.

Overall: 2 of 5 (split between action and CGI)

Movie review: Mission: Impossible 3 
Friday, May 12, 2006, 08:23 PM - Review
Yet another Tom Cruise movie. Mission: Impossible 3 has lots of action and special effects and Cruise. It also has lots of lame acting and silly dialogue. And definately no plot.

And Katie Holmes, though she's not listed in the credits. What? That's not Katie Holmes? Sure looks like her ...

Overall: 2.5 of 5 (2 for the action sequences)

Reviews: JoBlo, RottenTomatoes

Watching: Starsky and Hutch

Art imitating life ...

So I was watching this show about California's Pacific Coast Highway and I was thinking that a lot of those scenes looked very familiar, considering that I have never been to California.

Then it hit me: Most of those scenes look a lot like scenes from Grand Thef Auto: San Andreas!

It's the end of the media as we know it ...

Kind of ironic and funny that a mass media network is talking about its own demise: CBC's The End.
