A Mind is a Wonderful Thing to Twist

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/25/10 at 10:43 AM CT

I'm not ashamed to admit that many of my favorite films involve that completely and utterly baffling me or just cause me to go WTF? at any given time.

Case in point: Memento. The running in reverse, memory loss, shady characters - it all adds up. It's especially fun to watch a second time - with someone else whose never seen it. The reactions are golden.

Another great is Fight Club - the t...

Undead and Loving It!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/19/10 at 03:02 PM CT

Two icons of horror are enjoying a bit of a resurgence lately - in two different ways.

On one hand you have vampires. Unlike blood-suckers of old, today's vampires are shinier, younger and to be swooned over. Thank Stephenie Meyer and her successful Twilight Series. I'm not a fan but millions of other people are. Hey, if you don't bother me about Harry Potter, I won't bother you about Twilight...

3-D or Not 3-D? That is the Question

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/15/10 at 10:20 AM CT

Having experienced my first of the new 3-D films in Avatar, I was impressed. However, the success of Avatar in the 3-D market changed the game.

Before now, most of the 3-D films have been of the cartoon/computer generated variety. Pixar films, Coraline, Monsters vs. Aliens and I can see how that it would work. Even Avatar, for all intents and purposes, is a largely computer generated affair - ...

Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/13/10 at 11:42 AM CT

I've learned quite a few things from entering so many films onto our database. But for this, I'll stick with westerns. I'll admit, it's not my favorite genre by any stretch, but it's a genre with a rich history.

The 30s-40s-and early 50s were a period where there were just a ton of westerns. A lot of these oaters were 60-minute quickies starring people like Bob Steele, Tom Mix, Gene Autry, Wil...

Are We Reaching the Superhero Saturation Point?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/12/10 at 01:46 PM CT

With the recent announcement that Christopher Nolan is returning to helm the 3rd Batman, and that Spiderman is getting a prequel reboot - one has to wonder when the superhero bubble will burst.

A glance at the next few years worth shows numerous films around the corner. This summer is Iron Man 2 - sequel to the hit. After that, things really get going: Green Hornet, Green Lantern, Captain Amer...

Push My Envelope... Please!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/11/10 at 09:32 AM CT

I am constantly trying to find the next film that will make my guts churn, my eyes avert, my jaw drop at sheer sight of what I'm witnessing. Is it out of morbid curiosity that I seek out these films? Am I so desensitized that only the most extreme cases can now have an impact?

I don't know the reasons - maybe it's best not to dwell on them, all I know is, it's getting harder and harder to sha...

When Will You Join the 500 Club?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/09/10 at 09:47 AM CT

No not THAT 500 Club, I mean the 500-movie club. I'm almost there! Some people might think owning 500 movies is madness. They take up a lot of room, they're a pain to organize and sometimes they're even a pain to watch (I've had The Godfather Trilogy for about two years now, and I still haven't sat down to watch it).

Yet for all the trouble and money, I'm proud of my collection. Movies, TV...

Hollywood: Destroying my Childhood One Movie at a Time

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/08/10 at 09:56 AM CT

Back in the day, there was nothing I looked forward to than Saturday morning. You get up early, watch hours of cartoons and then if it was a nice day go out and run around like kids were apt to do.

Yes those were the days, but apparently filmmakers around my age or a little older also remember those days, but instead of cherishing those golden memories, they're trying to cash in.

Transforme...

Avatar Dethroned by Tear Jerker? Say It Ain't So!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/06/10 at 05:35 PM CT

Whether you love it or hate it, there's no denying that Avatar is monster. I truly thought Titanic record was going to be #1 for a much longer time, but Cameron proved that he's no one-hit wonder.

I was sure it would take someone else involved with Titanic - Leonard DiCaprio, and a master filmmaker: Martin Scorsese, to finally topple Avatar. However, it appears all that was needed was a weepy,...

Movies and Games: Why Can't We All Just Get Along?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/05/10 at 11:43 AM CT

My first blog post; I feel so important now. I thought I would post something that combines two of my passions: movies and video games.

Letís fact it: these two mediums have had a rough relationship. Games based on movies tend to fall into either bad (think E.T. Ė which pretty much destroyed the Atari) or completely average (such as the recent Avatar game which looked mighty pretty, but sunk ...
