Netflix Review: Exit Humanity

Geeks of Doom Netflix Streaming Review

Zombies for Thanksgiving!Exit Humanity Netflix Streaming DVD Directed by John Geddes Starring Brian Cox, Mark Gibson, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Stephen McHattie, Jordan Hayes, Adam Seybold Foresight Features and The Collective Originally Released: September 18, 2011

So what does the zombie movie Exit Humanity have to do with my Thanksgiving celebration? Please endure (and indulge) me while I explain a little.

Several years ago, I found myself in a position where I was going to be alone for Thanksgiving. I decided rather than do nothing; I would create my own unique personal tradition for the November holiday: I would cook up some good quality Italian sausage in place of the stereotypical turkey, and watch some zombie movies.

Movie Review: Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina Poster

Anna Karenina
Directed by Joe Wright
Written by Tom Stoppard
Starring: Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kelly Macdonald
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 130 Minutes
Release Date: November 30, 2012

"Rummaging in our souls, we often dig up something that ought to have lain there unnoticed." - Tolstoy

Baz Luhrmann meets Terrance Malick in this excruciatingly exquisite adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 19th century novel, Anna Karenina.

Directed Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice), with a script by famed British playwright Tom Stoppard, the film details the tragedy of married aristocrat and socialite Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley) and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

A charming, affluent bachelor, Vronsky pursues Anna, asking her to leave her husband Karenin (Jude Law), a high-ranking government official. Unhappy with the lack of love in her marriage, Anna flirts and dances with Vronsky in public, leaving her vulnerable to the scrutiny of her peers. A passionate affair ensues, and the private matters of Anna Karenina are soon put on stage before all of Russian high-society.

There have been more than fifteen feature films titled Anna Karenina, and that doesn't even include the made-for-television versions. What makes Joe Wright's adaptation different is the cinematic vocabulary used to bring Tolstoy's classic novel to life. Wright's rhythmic, dreamlike direction turns Anna Karenina into a stage play within the colossal theatre of Russian society [...]

Wait, What? Art Critic Calls ‘Star Wars Episode III’ The Greatest Work Of Past 30 Years

Posted: 30 Nov 2012 07:00 AM PST

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Image

Considered very recently to be the last Star Wars movie we'd ever see (until that little Disney transaction occurred, of course), Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was the third and final film in George Lucas's prequel trilogy.

For as much hate as the prequel movies get, most fanboy and girls would likely agree that Episode III was by far the best of the trio, hitting on some dark notes that created some redeeming qualities for the trilogy. Still, one wouldn't think that opinions of that film would rise much higher than that.

Enter Camille Paglia, a known and noted art critic who has a new book coming out called Glittering Images. In this book, Paglia makes quite the stunning statement: Revenge of the Sith is the greatest work of art in the past thirty years, of all mediums. [...]
