"Yeah, yeah, listen to the story I'm about to tell Another tale about that yayo" Im pretty sure this song was playing a lot while Alfred Gough and Miles Millar were writing this movie, because somewhere early on the script went down the tube and blaming drugs is easier than blaming anything else.
Well Brenden Fraser is back for the third time in a movie where no one knows what is happening but mummies are cooler than vampires so… Continue

Amir and his father leave Afghanistan to live in America where Amir continues to be a pansy and write books. He will later have to find a way to… Continue
One great thing about spill members its that some people have awesome taste in movies. A few weeks ago VeVe told me about this movie Black Sheep and sent me a trailer. Tonight i finally got around to watching it.
The premise of the story is this, Sheep turn into zombies! Ok its a little more complicated. There are two brothers that own rights to their fathers farm. When… Continue
Im about to go on this adventure where i watch every movie in my DVD collection, alphabetically. But before doing that i decieded this morning i would watch "Eraserhead" by the somewhat well known director David Lynch. I really had no idea what this film was about.
It goes something like this. A guy named Henry is a little messed up in the head. His girl friend moves in with him after she gives… Continue
Yesterday the movie, Hard Boiled by John Woo arrived in my mail box. I had heard it had a high "body count" so i decided to check it out. As i was watching it i thought to myself, "What movies have the most deaths in them?"
Well thank you google! Here's my list of super violent, blood, dead people. And junk like that
5. Hard Boiled! (307 bodies) The movie that prompted the questions makes the top five list!
4. Grindhouse: Double feature. (310)… Continue
Most documentaries seem to focus on a really unique story. Something out of the ordinary. The problem i have seen is that they focus so much on that they tend to through out the art film making in the process. A documentary will be still great and tell a fantastic story but be a little dull to watch.
Man on Wire crushes the typical form of documentaries.
The film shows the life of one man, Philippe Petit, who is a tight rope walker.… Continue
I have been waiting for weeks to see this film. They had all that lame limited release which was pretty much a tease saying, "haha this film is playing but not in your town yet!" Well guess what? January 9th is finally here and so is Gran Torino.
The lovable Clint Eastwood plays a man named, "Walt Kowalski" who is alone in his old age. He has seen war, raised a family, and now his wife as passed. Time to sit back and drink lots of… Continue
Now first off the only reason im writing about this film is because it was filmed here in Spokane WA. Unfortunately i was stupid and didn't photograph any photos of the set but i was walking in an alley today and guess what i found?
Vehicles from the movie! If you watch the trailer about 1 minute into it you will see both the car and the pink van.
I recently got a new job. Its one of those jobs where you basically do nothing for 4 to 8 hours at a time. But luckily i can read books.
After seeing "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" for the first time i knew i loved Robert Rodriguez style of film making. I went on to love Planet Terror and Desperado as well. Then randomly i found this book called "Rebel Without a Crew" stuffed under some books at the local book store. ROBERT RODRIGUEZ… Continue
I figured since i reviewed Deathproof i might as well watch the second half to this wonderful double feature. This time another one of my favorite directors, Robert Rodriguez, gives a grindhouse spin on film.
Planet Terror is about a group of terrorist that release some type of… Continue
This morning a new ACOCO was posted. As i listened intently i heard Carlyle say that Slumdog Millionaire was in his top 3 movies of the year. So i thought, "fine i will go see a movie about 'who wants to be a millionaire". After driving through the worst weather ever and walking a mile to the theater, i purchase me ticket and find my favorite seat. (the one in front with the railing to put my feet on, and the chair exactly in the… Continue
I dont know if its because its Christmas time or what but movies have been making me sad lately. At least this film didn't make me cry like the middle age woman next to me.
The plot is pretty simple, a man is born old and grows young. Its pretty much all the explanation you need. There are all kinds of other things that occur in the life of Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) but i wont spoil any of that for… Continue
Merry Christmas everyone! Its almost here! We have had so much snow my grandma cant go out and buy Christmas presents for me so she gave me money to go buy my own presents. I bought 4 films but Death Proof is the one movie i got to open before Christmas. The other three will have to wait a couple of days.
Anyway Death Proof was originally released as a "grindhouse" type film along side of Robert… Continue
This movie has been beaten to death by many people but a fellow Spill member (BladeRunner007) asked me if i would watch this pile of crap and write a review. So after removing all the sharp objects from my room i sat down and watch Disaster Movie.
Its terrible! I dont feel like i need to say anything else but i will. First off, there is no plot. Honestly if… Continue
I first heard about this movie on a Let's Do This i believe. Korey mentioned it then another spill member mentioned it today so i thought i would check it out. The Corndog Man is about a man who works as a boat salesman. Out of no where he gets a phone call from a guy claiming to be his son. The man continues to call him all day everyday. The story only gets deeper than… Continue
So this is day two of having so much freakin snow in front of my house that i can not leave my driveway. So im stuck watching movies all day. And thanks to Moxie I just finished watching "Welcome to the Dollhouse"
The movie is pretty much about a 7th grader named Dawn Wiener who is the the one girl in school everyone hates. She goes through all the… Continue
ugh this movie made my chest hurt. You know that intense feeling some movies give you? With this film you get that feeling at the beginning of the movie and it never lets up.
Transsiberian is about a husband (Roy, who isn't the sharpest tool in the shed) and his wife Jessie. They were in China for a couple weeks doing some work with their church and deiced, instead of flying home to… Continue
Filmmakers Eddy Moretti and Suroosh Alvi travel to Baghdad to bring us a documentary on Iraq's only heavy metal band ever! The film covers the life of the band and the struggles they face over about 6 years or so. Whether you like metal music or not you get an interesting perspective on life in Baghdad. The film is centered around a band that is very limited in playing shows so what you get instead is a… Continue
