Most Annoying Celebrites Of 2009

Most Annoying Celebrites of 2009
Ugh, we are so annoyed with all the celebs that made the Most Annoying Celebrites of 2009 list but we still have to write about it.

Ugh x 2!

There are very talented people who made the list but because they cannot step out of the spotlight they are labeled as annoying. There are also some of the least talented people in the world that made the list and because they are talentless and annoying, which is the ultimate combination, those people are probably going to be ranked near the top.

One might be your favorite actor or actress but we promise you do not like at least a few of the...

Video Game Films: Not Just Mindless Action Blockbusters

Crank 2: High Voltage
This second part of the argument for video game films (read part 1 here) focuses on the difference between the viewers and the gamers themselves. Why do gamers ignore this film genre and those who produce these films, particularly Uwe Boll?

The gaming community has developed a strong air of snobbery for their medium, therefore it is only natural they should be miffed about cross-media translations. This disgust should be a feeling most fans of literature and comics/graphic novels should empathize with; after all, they suffer from the same occasional heinous translations that murder th...

Sure, many movies based on video games are just that- game play on screen without a controller. We could spend all day listing more than twenty years' worth of these films including 'Super Mario Brothers', 'Mortal Kombat' films, a slew of 'Pokemon' releases, the 'Tomb Raider' films, 'Final Fantasy', 'Resident Evil' films, 'Silent Hill', 'Doom', 'Bloodrayne', 'Hitman', 'Max Payne', and 'Street Fighter' films. The larger question asks, do they have the potential to be more than just idle game play on screen? The answer is sometimes.

The release of 'Gamer', the next in line for the gen...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Gamer,' 'Extract' & More

August 31st, 2009 11:11am EDT

Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" is my recommendation for the must-see movie of the summer. Anyone who has an appreciation for Tarantino's films will love this WWII epic.

Divided into chapters like his other directorial work, this story follows a much more linear path than earlier movies, but it still reflects his unique style and flair. Musically "Inglourious Basterds" feels like one part spaghetti western, one part 80s rock ballad, elevating the intensity of emotions and violence in a number of scenes.

As Lt. Aldo Raine, Brad Pitt is a crude, ruthless, brutally honest ...
