Go Watch WALL•E

June 30, 2008

It is as simple as that, you need to go watch WALL•E. If you want to stop reading that’s fine because you already read the most important part of what I am going to say. Incase you missed it, go watch WALL•E.

Pixar has created an amazing gem of a film here that really blurs the lines of what is a kid’s film and what is a movie for adults. From the sober opening to the goofy robot chase, everything just works and clicks. What they did was create an amazing sci-fi film with a great atmosphere and message and then wrapped it in a cute and loving animation that everyone can like. For me, Pixar hit it with Toy Story 2, then it was Monsters, Inc. and now WALL•E takes the top pedestal position. I don’t want to say much more other than that and also the short film at the opening of the movie, a Pixar standard, is now their best as well. And yes, it does have a hoedown in it.

I Survived Nothing But an American Game Show

June 30, 2008

As soon as I saw the previews for this crap show, I knew something was wrong. There is no way any real Japanese gameshow would let some random American reality show clog up their schedule with filming some stupid shit. And it is just now that more people are realizing the truth that the show, I Survived a Japanese Game Show, is fake.

From the fact that every game on the show is a poor rip off of older shows to their “Japanese host” who is an American actor, there is not a shred of reality in the mixture. What is great is that more people are realizing it and hopefully the show will end fast.

BOO!
