Netflix Review: Memento

Netflix Streaming DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Starring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano, Mark Boone Junior, Jorja Fox, Stephen Tobolowsky
Summit Entertainment
Originally Released: September 5, 2000

Christopher Nolan has a magnetic touch for filmmaking. His resultant products as director are always compelling viewing and – perhaps the more important aspect – make for incredible rewatchability. His movie, Memento, written by Nolan and based on a short story by his brother Jonathan Nolan, is no exception to this rule, and is conceivably one of the finest mystery and mindfuck movies ever made.

But where and how to start reviewing Memento...? I have lost count of the times I've watched this movie, but the convolutions throughout the plot make it exceptionally difficult to review without revealing key plot points, revelations, and, for lack of a better idiom, spoilers.

All I can really say at this point is that if you have not seen this movie before, cease reading right now and go and watch it. I mean it! Stop reading my drool here and get over to Netflix and watch the damn thing.

For those incredulous, read on, but be warned: there may be spoilers in these here waters [...]

Check Out The First Two Episodes Of ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome’

Posted: 09 Nov 2012 01:57 PM PST

bsg blood and chrome

So after the huge success of Battlestar Galactica on Syfy the creators wanted to craft some spin-offs/sequels. One of those sequels, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, seemed to have potential and the other one, titled Caprica seemed, to have less. Well to be honest both series could have been great, but Caprica fizzled in the ratings and creatively, so the future of Blood and Chrome was bleak. For a while it looked like it was still coming to the Syfy network then everything went all hush hush when it was canned.

Now Blood and Chrome is finally out online and you can watch the first two episodes are right here below [...]

Revealing Image Of Alexa Vega On Set Of ‘Machete Kills’

Alexa Vega Header

We all have to grow up some time and former Spy Kids star Alexa Vega has been doing a lot of growing up recently. She stars in Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills as a femme fatale-like character named Killjoy – seems appropriate for this kind of movie. While she previously posted a picture of herself before shooting her scene, the photo below is the first official image of her on set.

Check it out the photo here below, and make sure your boss or significant other isn't around (no, no there is no nudity).

Vega is now 24, and obviously she has really grown up to be a very sexy mature young woman. Hard to believe that she was that young child in those silly Spy Kid films. She revealed the new image of herself on her instagram account [...]

Movie Review: Lincoln

Lincoln Poster

Directed by Steven Spielberg
Written by Tony Kushner
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, Tommy Lee Jones, Jackie Earle Haley
DreamWorks Studios
Rated | 150 Minutes
Release Date: November 9, 2012

Director Steven Spielberg's Lincoln focuses on the tumultuous final months of President Abraham Lincoln's life, the abolishment of slavery, and the Union's victory in the American Civil War.

Lincoln stars Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) as the 16th President of the United States, Sally Field (The Amazing Spider-Man) as Mary Todd Lincoln, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) as their oldest son, Robert Todd Lincoln.

In the midst of the American Civil War, President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 declared the freedom of slaves in ten rebellious Confederate states. The executive order was seen as a temporary war measure, as it did not actually free any slaves in border states or make the act of slavery illegal.

In order to abolish slavery once and for all, Republicans pushed The Thirteenth Amendment through the Senate. In order for it to be ratified, the amendment had to be passed in the divided House of Representatives - which is really what Spielberg's film chooses to explore in depth [...]

‘Mass Effect 4′ Enters Early Stages Of Development; BioWare Seeking Fan Input

Mass Effect 3 Image

After the three-game Mass Effect trilogy came to an emotional end recently---part sadness at the closing of Commander Shepard's storyline; part anger at the poorly executed ending (which was made much better by the release of an extended cut)---it seemed we'd be waiting a bit before any word of future titles in the franchise were spoken of. That said, we all knew that Mass Effect 4 would be arriving some day.

But while the game is still far off in the distance (next generation consoles, in the likeliest of scenarios), BioWare has already begun early development on the title, and they're looking for feedback from we the players to help them decide where exactly they want to take the next game. [...]

‘Toy Story 3′ Michael Arndt Reportedly Penned Treatment For New ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy

Posted: 09 Nov 2012 09:00 AM PST

Star Wars Header

The fact that Star Wars: Episode VII could be an original story opens the door for new possibilities to take new characters to far off worlds that we have yet to see. Many of the original characters would not appropriately fit the age of their respective characters even if they decided to base Episode VII on some of Lucas's earlier works or the works that have already been created. But with no confirmation on where the movie could go, everything about the plot for the film is just pure speculation.

However the film may have found its writer to pen the screenplay. Disney is talking to Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt to pen the script for Episode VII. [...]

‘World War Z’ Trailer: Brad Pitt Has A Slight Zombie Problem

Posted: 09 Nov 2012 08:00 AM PST

Brad Pitt in World War Z

With all that has happened to Marc Forster's adaptation of Max Brooks' World War Z, you might think that the zombie apocalypse actually happened. For one thing, the film, which stars Brad Pitt, went through many rewrites and reshoot, by the time the film actually entered the extensive reshooting phase, which forced the film to push back its original release date, many deemed the film dead on arrival.

So a new trailer has arrived and you can judge for yourself if the film was worth the wait, but from what I have been hearing, the film is a complete departure from the Brooks' novel, and that is sure to upset fans of the book. Check it out below. [...]

Mark Wahlberg Officially Joins ‘Transformers 4′; New Logo Released

Transformers 4 Logo Image

It started as a rumor that Michael Bay was in talks with Mark Wahlberg to star in his return to giant alien robots, Transformers 4. Bay denied these rumors, saying that he and Wahlberg, who stars in the director's next movie, Pain and Gain, were in talks for another project.

But then the 'net---as it tends to do on occasion---began buzzing over the rumored casting, and it apparently led Bay to think of a part in the movie for the actor. Which brings us to now, where word that Wahlberg has indeed been cast in Transformers 4 has been made official by Bay himself. A new logo for the movie (seen above) was also released. [...]

MGM/Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 143 Minutes
Release Date: November 9, 2012

In Skyfall, James Bond (Daniel Craig) fails to recover a drive containing sensitive information, resulting in the exposure of undercover NATO agents in terrorist organizations.

Meanwhile, the enigmatic criminal mastermind Silva (Javier Bardem) orchestrates an attack on MI6 headquarters that kills several agents.

Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee Gareth Mallory (Ralph Finnes) raises concerns about M's (Judi Dench) competence as head of the Secret Intelligence Service. It seems the only person who can restore M's reputation is Bond. James Bond.

Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road), Skyfall is the 23rd installment of the long-running spy series, featuring an all-star ensemble that includes Naomie Harris as Eve, Ben Whishaw as Q, Bérénice Marlohe as Sévérine, and Albert Finney as Kincade.

Martin Campbell's 2006 film, Casino Royale, rebooted the James Bond series, establishing a new timeline and narrative framework, allowing the film to show a less experienced, more vulnerable Bond. The film introduced Daniel Craig (Layer Cake) and was praised for its dark, realistic reboot of the series - in the spirit of Batman Begins [...]
