Shadows of Colossus

I came across this article on Kotaku, a popular Gaming Blog, regarding an intriguing bit of product placement in the new Adam Sandler flick, Reign Over Me. Reign, a comedy drama directed by Mike Binder, stars Adam Sandler as Charlie, a New Yorker who has disconnected from reality in the wake of a massive personal tragedy….

Mii60

The rumors are true. I have followed my cousin’s lead and am also a Wii60 household, possessing both an Xbox 360 and a Wii for roughly the same price as the PS3. The Wii has been in the home since last November. With Zelda completed and nobody around to school me in Wii Sports, it…

Batting 300

  I caught this flick last weekend with my best bud Sean. Earlier this year, he had posted his Top 5 Films of 2006. When I tried to comment, I realized that the only way I could make out a Top 5 List of my own was to list every movie I had seen in…

Grinding Gears

New Line Cinemas announced this week that they have acquired the rights to produce a movie based on the hit Xbox 360 game, Gears of War. When I first read this, I was intrigued. I’m currently playing through the co-op campaign of GoW and I have found that this game lives up to its pre-release…

Lost – ‘The Man from Tallahassee’ – 3.13

  Now that’s the John Locke I remember. When Lost first launched back in September 2004, the first character I cottoned to was the mysterious John Locke. For starters, he was played by Terry O’Quinn, a fantastic character actor who I discovered in one of those late 80’s slasher flicks, The Stepfather, and later followed…

Lost – ‘Par Avion’ – 3.12

Although it had its detractors, the Hurley-centric ‘Tricia Tanaka is Dead’ seems to have served a real purpose – allowing Lost to slow down a tic, let everyone take a pause, get reacquainted and settle their bearings before we were off to the races. If Tanaka’s symbolic moment is a rusted VW bus spinning donuts…

Lost – ‘Enter 77’ – 3.11

  I’ve really got to start getting these updates out in a more timely fashion and not just on the day of the next episode. This episode had a lot to chew on so I’m going to dispense with my normal three paragraph prologue and dive right into the observations. On with the show. 1.  …

No Escape

John Carpenter must be spinning in his grave. I read this morning that the trifecta is complete – there are now remakes of his three greatest movies in the works. While Rob Zombie continues toiling on his Halloween remake and Ronald Moore polishes the script for The Thing redux, now comes word that producer Neal…

Lost – ‘Tricia Tanaka is Dead’ – 3.10

First off, I apologize for the lengthy delay in getting these (or any) posts out. The times… they are a’ changing. At least that’s the way things seem of late as I have had a number of factors conspire to rid me of my precious free time for Blogging duties. For starters, I am taking…
