Lucy, or What Are You Trying to Say, Besson? Lucy, or What Are You Trying to Say, Besson?

Hello everyone. In my inaugural post on The Movie Club, I am going to review Lucy, which I saw this afternoon.

After the Red Wedding, here comes Tywin Lannister's next scheme...Sotchi? After the Red Wedding, here comes Tywin Lannister's next scheme...Sotchi?

The BBC just released this pretty awesome trailer for the upcoming Winter Olympic 2014. And they hired Tywin Lannister's Himself, Charles Dance, to do the haunting, menacing voice of Nature itself. It's great - but it makes you wish the Olympics were actually hosted in Westeros.

Like Obelix would say: These Americans are insane.

So you know, I hate people who text during a movie. Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate them. But I don't, you know, shoot them in the chest. Apparently, retired Florida police officers do:

Marvel Studios, I have only one wish for Christmas 2015.. Marvel Studios, I have only one wish for Christmas 2015..

Now that Michael Douglas is Hank Pym, can we PLEASE get a cameo of Kirk DOuglas alongside Stan Lee? He can be Stan Lee's chess partner, or maybe they make bets that ruin people life for a dollar, or something.

So I just finished Helix and... So I just finished Helix and...

Well, for a show io9 has been hyping for weeks, it really wasn't the kind of can't-miss thrill I was expecting. It wasn't bad - the mystery is intrguing, the set-up is new and different, and there are some character I like (Doreen the blonde, and the Army guy) But I have three big problems:

Golden Globes so far...assorted toughts Golden Globes so far...assorted toughts

Ok, so I'm following the Golden Globes online (not actually watching it cause the powers that be won't let me)

American Hustle - the geek review.

So yesterday I was finally able to see American Hustle, in preparation for the Golden Globes tomorrow which nominated that movie a bunch of times. No spoilers here that you can't get from the synopsis or trailer, but I do spoil the soundtrack a bit at the end.

What happen when "Science Show for kids" meets "Creationist Propaganda"? The Creation Adventure Team What happen when "Science Show for kids" meets "Creationist Propaganda"? The Creation Adventure Team

I discovered this of Youtube today. Anybody has seen it before? It's a edited, best-off montage of a "science movie" called Creation Adventure Science Team that reveals the truth about dinosaurs - they were created on Day 6, just like man, aren't billions of years old, and actually, still live today, but they are…

The Dark Miller Strikes Again! The Dark Miller Strikes Again!

So, it's somewhat old news, but since it was released on Christmas Eve, I missed it, and I suppose some might have too. Frank MIller is going to do a vriant cover for an upcoming issue of Detective Comics and..OH MY GOD look at this monstrosity!

So, about tonight's revelation on Agent Coulson?

This is spoiler corner, so be warned! Also, I am a fan of the show, so be warned about that too!

THIS is how you do a Wrecking Ball parody THIS is how you do a Wrecking Ball parody

So, every year in Quebec we have a show on December 31 at 11pm called "Bye-Bye (year that is ending)" This show is a humorous retrospective of the year, with parodies of all the memorable event of the past year. And that means, of course, some song parody.

Today random retro sci-fi fix: Damnation Alley Today random retro sci-fi fix: Damnation Alley

So I am at my mom for the holidays, and she has that channels that specializes in old movies. And sometimes they have weird things. Like this very loose Roger Zelazny adaption from 1977 that I just watched:

What was the time when you were the most surprised at someones taste?

This is something that happened to me yesterday - I went to a show of a psycho-billy band. Not my usual style at all, but I had listened to this band at work called The Creepshow and I just fell in love with it on the stop. So when they came to that small bar in town, I went for sure!

So I finally saw Catching Fire... So I finally saw Catching Fire...

And I liked it. But that's not important. What is important - my god was that Commander Thread an intimidating, scary psycho. Get this guy into the new Star Wars movie stat - he would be an awesome villain commander.

So I got rejected for the big grant I was vying for.

Which put my entire Ph.D. in jeopardy - without the possibility of getting it, I might very well not even be accepted in the program I had chosen and did the application for. Right now, that means that next week, I might be out in the curb with a M.A. in Literature and no money.

This is my nomination for "Most Sickening Ad of the Year" This is my nomination for "Most Sickening Ad of the Year"

This holiday commercial from Mattel that I got on Youtube today:

Frozen... a good movie, but something is missing (light spoilers) Frozen... a good movie, but something is missing (light spoilers)

So I am back from seeing Frozen and, well, I'm kind of two minds about it. I liked a lot of the individuals elements in it - I liked the twists they did on "love at first sight" and "true love kiss" trope, I liked the villain's reveal, I like how the snow was animated, I liked the relationships between the two…

5 deaths? Seriously USA? 5 deaths? Seriously USA?

This year Black Friday 5 deaths and 81 injured. WHY? It's just shopping people! It's not worth dying for! Really not!
