Now That’s A Movie Review

Filed under: — Chap @ 7:35 am

An art movie to end all art movies. Some highlights from the review:

Since the days of Un Chien Andalou and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, filmmakers have reached beyond meaning. But with this summer’s biggest, loudest movie, Michael Bay takes us all the way inside Caligari’s cabinet. And once you enter, you can never emerge again. I saw this movie two days ago, and I’m still living inside it. Things are exploding wherever I look, household appliances are trying to kill me, and bizarre racial stereotypes are shouting at me.

And every single performance is so ridiculous that it looks down on “over the top” as if from a great height.

So, to sum up: Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is one of the greatest achievements in the history of cinema, if not the greatest. You could easily argue that cinema, as an artform, has all been leading up to this.

This contest? Genius. Good choice for winner, too.

Regis could not be reached for comment, as he was in combat in an undisclosed location in Afghanistan alongside three nearly unclothed young women. As usual.

But, P.J. O’Rourke doesn’t know that those people being called racists are those other people, not him! You know, anyone who thinks like him and not in the room!

It’s not the decision, but yet another bellwether for women on submarines. Of course, they have to have enough ships to put people on, mind you, but you know how it is.

I offer advice from previous iterations of this periodic issue.

This is a nicely done picture. I think they drew the picture using a self-timer, and at the last minute…

Now, I haven’t tasted any of the whisky from this distillery…

Yeah, this is pretty funny: The Malt Impostor. Rather alternative reviews of whiskies.

I have found the home blog of some of the construction workers around here.

Guy sits around and writes slightly demented reviews on Amazon. Writes things like “An excellent thesaurus with an easy-to-follow layout. Regular use of it has enabled me practically to eliminate the word “basically” from my vocabulary” and This is a fantastic book. You can tell that it is a motivational book of the highest quality by the fact that it has not one, but two colons in the title.

I haz it. (You can buy one like it there too, when the artist makes some more.)

The conceit behind the link: A. Koford discovered that his grandfather invented the LOLCat in a comic strip back in the day and is showing some on the Web for your perusal.

I’m Totally Stealing This One

Sez Skippy,

I got this in an e-mail today. Worth repeating:

"PowerPoint has largely become affirmative action for the inarticulate"

An odd list of RSS feeds put into a blog. Some interesting stuff.

Includes a T-shirt that might well bring the Internet meme apocalypse.

Yeah, that top cartoon? Totally real.

The webcomic Air Force Blues is running again, and apparently has been for a while. Time to dig into the archives.

Yeah, the phrase “here, watch this” combined with pyrotechnics is potentially hilarious.

Army of Dude reviews a reviewer, and doesn’t like what he sees.

It’s almost an art form to be so intellectually dishonest, and Marlow seems to be an up and coming Picasso.

The essay is well worth your time.

Oh, geez…LOLNav.
