All right, I've wanted to do this blog for a very, very long time. It's a question that ponders the mind of every movie fanatic on the Internet especially the ones on sites like Ain't It Cool News, Cinematical, CHUD, and Spill Movie Reviews. Are we seeing the slow death of originality in film? Well, I'm going to try and guess the answer as best as I can.
I would say that we are not really experiencing a "death" of originality, it's more or less a period where movie studios are being… Continue

Its been a while since I posted a list of good Bollywood/Indian films that you guys should check out. And even since then times have changed. I watched a lot more, and a lot more have been released, and yet theres still a common misconception that you can't kiss in a Bollywood movie.
I understand why people still think that this is true, I mean the liberalization of India has barely reached its 20th anniversary, and the liberalization of Indian art is still in its infancy… Continue

Fun fact: There were only seven other people in the theater besides me, and all in their fifties at least. I'm not even sure what that says.
The first few minutes of this have nothing to do with the movie, just some ranting about my latest move, so start at about 2:35 if you want to skip all that.
As you can probably
tell, the shear suckitude of this movie left me pretty discombobulated so I left a few things out or unsaid.… Continue

Please save your money and wait for this one to come out on DVD. I saw it at a sneak preview on the 17th and it was just down right dull. It had it's moments but really, they could have expanded on so many things and it would have made the movie interesting (not more interesting, just interesting in general because it wasn't really an interesting movie). I haven't read the comics which is the case with all the Marvel and D.C. comics made in to movies that I see and I go in with an open mind.… Continue

Hey guys, it's me again! Remember that catchy hip-hop song from the trailers for the upcoming animated supervision comedy "Despicable Me"? Well apparently the full version by Pharrell Willams that'll be heard in the film and on the soundtrack has been released early. I'll upload it to my profile's music player shortly, but here's a youtube video of it someone upload (it's not a music video, just the audio of the song): Continue

Ok, Scooby-Doo is ONE thing, same with "Alvin and the Chipmunks". But THIS? *Sigh* Just...just watch people.
I know it's only a teaser, but, once again, it looks like the whole live action people with CGI cats/dogs/Smurfs/etc. has BACKFIRED. The Smurfs look like shit. And I'm not surprised. I want to make this VERY clear guys: NO ONE ASKED FOR THIS TO BE MADE INTO A MOVIE! The only reason they're… Continue

Toy Story 3, 11 years after the hit of Toy Story 2, 15 years after the hit Toy Story. You get the drift here? The Toy Story franchise sits a top of the animated world and has been ever since 1995 when it debuted. Pixar always cranks out elite animated films, due to it’s ability to appeal to people of all ages, and that truly is the reason these movies are so beloved. The… Continue

Disclaimer: Ewok Princess is a princess among all princesses and because she was nice enough to buy me pancakes and is someone I’ll call my unofficial Spill Mom, she is, like a man past his alcoholic limit, invulnerable to criticism.
Washington, D.C. No, we are not Austin or London or Amsterdam. Doesn’t make what amounted to a great get-together any less memorable than other Spill get-togethers. But I digress. Courtesy of our very own Ewok Princess, on the weekend… Continue

Much ado has been made on "the interwebs" lately about the new Mortal Kombat trailer, a spec film shot specifically to shop around to movie studios in hopes to get a new film franchise going. In the trailer, Micheal Jai White
", "Black Dynamite
") stars as Capt. Jackson "Jaxx" Riggs, and introduces us to a bevy of reality-based versions of the classic… Continue

Well guys, it’s that time of the week again, as we take a look at the films coming out this week and I’ll give my insight in to how much they’ll make this weekend. Admittedly, I only hit 1 out
of 4 last weekend, but I am much more familiar with these two films and
where they’re coming from, so let’s see if I’ll do any better this week!

This is a movie about a villain who adopts 3 kids, and it's crap.
The villain Gru, voiced by Steve Carell, has no likable moments and yet the movie wants you to side with him. He is upset that a new villain is getting more attention than him, so he adopts 3 kids to infiltrate this new villains lair. Perfect sense, right? There is some thing else about stealing the moon, but it gets shafted… Continue

Hey guys. A while back, I did a list of what I considered the Top 15 greatest comic book films of the past ten years. Having completed that, and having a little extra time on my hands, I
decided to compile a Top 15 list for another genre: fantasy films.
There are many reasons why people go to the movie theaters and shell out increasingly higher amounts of money to see a film displayed on a big screen, but perhaps the biggest reason has always been…

Starting today, I have decided to do a weekly segment where I look at the movies being released each week and provide my predictions of how I think they will do, based on what I’ve seen of the trailers and
the ad campaigns.
This week, we have a wide array of genres: R-rated comedy, cgi-animal family movie, an action movie, and even in a sci-fi horror flick. So, here we go.

So here I am again, looking down the foamy-mothed psychotic garbles of pissed-off fanboys complaining about how they hate the Captain America and Thor costume designs. Many of the comments can be summed up by: "This is a total insult to all the fans!" Okay, if Hollywood TRULY wanted to insult Marvel fans, they would cease production on the two aforementioned movies and The Avengers movies and simply laugh at all the screaming fans of the world. Hollyood is not insulting fanboys by changing… Continue

In anticipation of this week's "LEOG Summer Spectacular!" (more about that here
), I took a few hours tonight to put together this "summer mega-mix" for your listening pleasure.
I grabbed about thirty songs that either had "summer" in the title or were about summer, and starting mixing them together. Unfortunately, then I got lazy and decided to stop at about a… Continue

As I told you earlier, I said I would upload my picks for the Spider-Man reboot cast. Well, let's get started.
Harry Osborn - Anton Yelchin
One of the things in Raimi’s franchise that I loved, was the dynamic between Peter and Harry. Tobey was this nerdy, average looking guy, while Harry was… Continue
