The trailer for Elysium is out and I can't contain my excitement. I haven't felt like this about a movie trailer since I saw the first trailer for the first Lord of The Rings movie, back when the idea of a LOTR franchise on the silver screen was nothing but a dream to the readers.
I will try to explain the reason for my excitement, but It is hard to put into words that are meaningful to others. For example, the trailer shows a world that I want to see, the few images on this… Continue

We finally have another epic story that can take the Harry Potter formula to the next logical step. Harry Potter was a phenomenon unlike any other. It got an entire generation to read, it broke all grounds in terms of what Hollywood epics were capable of, and it… Continue

Palms to Heaven, friend, and welcome to another edition of Spill in D.C. Despite the hot weather reaching well into the 100s in the District, a crew of Spillios (Ewok Princess, Moxie, Ken-K and two of his friends, and myself) gathered last weekend to talk shit, discuss Cons, and other discussions that spurred out of the movie of the day: Cowboys and… Continue

There are few adversaries who hit home for the Caped Crusader as much as the duplicitous psychopath known as Two-Face. This fallen district attorney and friend of Bruce Wayne represents a casualty in
the heart of the Dark Knight, as he was one of the tortured souls that
Batman could not save and was the one who had all the potential to
further Batman’s goal of permanently cleaning up the corrupted city of
Gotham. Paired off…

It's what many of us hoped and prayed for (but cautious for), and Sharlto Copley in an interview with Empire told them that not only he was interested in returning as Wilkus, but Neil Blomkamp was as well. Granted he had no idea where the sequel would go:
"Neil wants it and I want it. Neil's doing another film first. Then I think if everything goes according to… Continue

I think this year's Academy Award Nominations for Best Picture has had a wonderful selection, but unfortunately not everyone agrees with the choices. Some complained that Avatar
was unoriginal, Inglorious Basterds
too talky, and so on and so forth. Most spill members downright hated some of the selections on the list. Well I think the proper solution to this would to combine the nominations together and you not only get better selections but better films as well. Check this… Continue

I've never been an eloquent writer who can create a string of coherent thoughts effectively. I just thought that I'd put that out there first to give you a bit of a warning when you come onto this blog. As for the main topic, I'm still going to be covering old territory here, but at this point what isn't.
A lot of the extended trailers these days have a major problem. They tend to ruin so much of the movie it almost isn't worth it anymore. Part of the appeal of a movie, to… Continue

Now the buzz I've heard in discussions regarding Oscar nominations, specifically Best Motion Picture, the two that seem neck-in-neck are Avatar and Inglourious Basterds. The reason is that Inglourious Basterds recieved Best Ensemble in the SAG Awards (whose sole purpose has become Oscar predictions) while Avatar got best film. Last year, the winner, Slumdog Millionaire, received ensemble instead of film and went on to get the Oscar for best film. Outside of that, typically SAG Award for best… Continue

Now I know I might be a bit late with this blog but I wanted to say what my favorites films of 2009 were. Now I already made a Blog about my top ten favorite films of 2009 awhile back but I wanted to make another one for two reasons. 1. Some of my opinions have changed for the films from my last top ten, which means I some of the movies that I put on my last top ten list are gone from this list and some of the ones that were on the last list are on a different now, and 2. My last blog didn't… Continue

Hey everyone, I'm sorry this is a little too late, but I felt like I needed to see all of the years biggest films to fully make this reasonable so here we go:
10. The Messenger
For some reason this film was advertised about a romantic trance between a torn-woman and the messenger, but it is not that at all. This is a film that effectively shows the dramatic effect that war can put on veterans, that are beautifully portrayed by Harrelson… Continue

Well, the 2000s decade has left us and we must now be open for what the 2010s will have in store for us. You and I both have seen a ton of lists highlighting what this decade saw with film and the goods and bads that accompanied it. I've been waiting to decide in what format I would attempt to do such a list. It occurred to me it would be a neat little idea to highlight the 10 year span by giving my opinion on what were the best films of each respective year. You're not going to agree with… Continue

The awesome film District 9 (seems to )

Information Minister Dora Akunyili told the BBC's Network Africa programme for an apology from Sony. She added that District 9
portrays nigerians as cannibals, criminals and prostitutes.
The actor who played the nigerian… Continue

District 9 Review
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 89%
My rating: Full Price!!
First things first, I love sci-fi. It’s my favourite genre and is the genre with the greatest potential. It lets you down from time to time but then The Terminator happens, or Alien, or Star Wars, or my little heart throb; Blade Runner. It’s a genre of variety. Fantasy, you have elves and swords and sorcery, romance you have chicks and guys,… Continue

I consider this summerto be a summerof ups and downs. For most people downs, but there were good and great films this year. It seems the big budget overly hyped films were the let downs. This list is to reconize the best of this summer.
10. Public Enemies Rating: Matinee
Of all films this summer this one seemed the most real to me. The HD style, and the building the costumes all seemed very real to… Continue

The surprise of the summer.
Besides seeing some movie posters and the standard trailer, I had heard next to nothing about this film. All I knew going in was that it had aliens and a budget of $30 million.
Was it a political thriller? An action flick? A romance? I had no clue, and that was part of the fun of this film, I didn't know what direction it was going to take. So if you want a similar experience, stop reading this… Continue

This summer may be looked back upon as the summer that turned it around. It might be the last summer studios and filmmakers throw millions of dollars at the screen for no particular reason. Why? District 9.
Tips for the Producers of Major Motion Pictures
1. Don't Get a Star to be in your movie, just because they're a star.
Today many big-name actors get paid millions of dollar per movie, racking up the budgets to levels beyond what they should be, why do you… Continue

It's here people! The film long discussed and much hyped is here, and I'm here to tell you that it's one of the rare films that absolutely lives up to the hype.
Allow me to preface my thoughts here by advising you to go into this movie (as the Cohost suggested) completely blind and unaware of any plot. I didn't know too much about it, and that was part of what made it so fun. That being said, I won't spoil any major plot points- I'm… Continue
