Seriously, you can’t help but to laugh. This guy is so serious about his groove…

Beethoven’s Big Break is a family fun lov’n good time. It might be number 5 or 7 in the series, but overall for innocent family/kid TV watching goodness this old dog has got some new tricks, and a few old ones too. Who doesn’t love a 185-lb St Bernard and all his litter coming over for dinner? There are a few laughs, good tunes for the younger audience like the Jonas Brothers and Everlife and a handful of somewhat comical actors like Johathan Silverman and Eddie Grifin. Beethoven’s Big Break is all right for what it is; yet another big slobbering dog makes funny family film.

That’s right Transporter 3 stands for 3 razors. Seriously it does what it sat out to accomplish: 1. Lots of ass-kicking action (clothing optional) 2. Car chases, crashes, floating and train jumping and last, but not least 3. Independent films have an action hero and his name is Jason (OMG he so hot) Statham. No seriously Transporter 3 is just that, part 3 to a chain of films that rock on the choreographed fight scenes, but come up short in content and quality acting.

Seriously I wanted to laugh. I really wanted to laugh, but for some reason where scenes should have been funny, just ended up lying there like a dead stinky fish. Vince Vaughn’s ability to act completely stupid is innate, but it gets a little exhausting and Reese is just too adorable, but who hasn’t seen her perfectly put together and adorable. I must say the clever combo of Robert Duvall, Tim McGraw and Jon Favreau as father and sons, was absolutely brilliant. They made most of the trip worthwhile.

Twilight

by The Scarlet Harlot on November 21, 2008 · 0 comments

in Film

Capturing the sparkle of a diamond in the rough Twilight accomplishes its destiny. Twilight is a film to be reckoned with amongst teenage girls and fans of the novel series; even though it is not great, I would say it’s handsome nonetheless. The film itself is awkward and lacking a bit of finesse, but isn’t a monstrosity.

Chris Anthony’s photos are twisted, scary, freakish and down right weird, I LOVE THEM! He has directed rock videos and done photography since he was a teen. His work encompasses both celebrity and current events, but the way he depicts it is absolutely devilish and spooky. On the site you will find exhibitions for Victims and Avengers (my fave), Red White Black & Blue and Portraits. The photo to the left has been cropped, all of the photos in Victims and Avengers are quite large and horizontal. Enjoy your freaky photo Friday.

Ron Mueck creates oversize human sculptures. His pieces look so real, except that they range from itty bitty to stories high. How creepy, imagine walking down the street and running into one of these. I do apologize, but I can’t find a site of his own and the photo gallery on the Washington Post’s site is pretty limited. By the way, Mueck is a former television and film model maker with no formal art training (information taken from the Washington Post site).

Blood and Chocolate: 1 Star (out of 5)

From the producers of Underworld, we get the teenage version with Blood and Chocolate. A film based very loosely off of the characters from the young adult novel with the same name; Blood and Chocolate is a perfect film for teenagers between the ages of 13 and 16. Not as interesting and technically fit as Underworld and certainly doesn’t compare with the classics such as An American Werewolf in London or Silver Bullet, but for this generation it fits. Special effects are completely lacking, a cohesive storyline is far from the big screen and a few of the actors didn’t fit; however this PG-13 werewolf film got a few jumps out of me and my daughter loved it.

Fantasy artist Philip Straub brings his audience directly into the world of the unknown. His work, digitally illustrated and painted, is detailed and extravagant; Straub really knows his stuff. Many of you have seen his work in AAA console titles such as Madden, NCAA, NASCAR and Superman Returns 2. His talent and art direction began with a degree from Paier College in 1995 and has been going strong ever since; enjoy his fantasy world from illustrations to digital paintings.

Here’s to hoping that 2007 is a better year for film and toasting the few and far between good films of 2006. I must say there certainly wasn’t any banger moments for big Hollywood hoopla, but the more independent, documentary and foreign type films really rocked my world.
