Since I’ve been spending quite a bit of time at the movies lately, that also means I’ve been seeing lots of trailers. When we’re not seeing a lot of movies, I miss seeing all the stuff that’s coming up, although sometimes that can be a blessing as well. I can’t tell you how tired I … Read more

Movie critic Damien Chambers takes a look at The Devils Rejects, the highly controversial film from director Rob Zombie. The Devil’s Rejects (2005) Tagline: “A Tale of Murder, Mayhem, and Revenge.” Sequels are a tricky proposition for most filmmakers.

Virtually every captain of industry is a stickler for detail. So it is known in Cashing the Czech.

It’s an age-old mystery that may never be solved, but that doesn’t stop me from trying. No one knows for sure which Norse god was the inspiration for naming a day as ‘Friday,’ but I’ve definitely found someone who can narrow the list of contenders. This is shown in Fridays Girl.

It is easy to confuse the concepts of “virtual reality” and a “computerized model of reality (simulation)”, as shown in The Matrix. The former is a self-contained Universe, replete with its “laws of physics” and “logic”. It can bear resemblance to the real world or not. It can be consistent or not. It can interact … Read more
