Celebrity Review: Rebecca Da Costa

Rebecca Da Costa is a name that is catching up – and fast. A promising young star, she already has quite a list of movies and modeling stints to add to her resume. With amazing characteristics, personality and talent as a whole, it won’t be a surprise when she takes over the entire limelight she already is in.

The Rescue Me Retrospective

One cannot underestimate the brilliance of the first season and a half of Rescue Me. Tommy Gavin and the rest of the crew of the Ladder 62 truck showcased all the best and the worst of a “Boys Club” mentality: The endless jokes and pranks (all hilarious), the beautiful lack of sensitivity (well respected), and the lack of understanding or appreciation for the women in their lives (well done). This was male testosterone at its very finest. The rest of the crew featured The Womanizer (Franco), The Fat Guy (Lou), The Dumb Guy (Sean), The New Guy (Mike), and The Boss (Chief Reilly). Together, these six guys highlighted the best parts of the male ego, while desperately trying to hide the fragile parts (to often spectacularly hilarious effect).

Holoscreen Technology Leading Us Into The Future of TV Displays

After LED and 3DTV screens, the next revolution in TV viewing is already in the pipeline. Researchers are developing holoscreen technology in hopes of radically changing how we experience entertainment.

Are You a Kid of the 90s?

Who ever believed this might actually happen? With the manner all the Nickelodeon stations have been slowly and gradually doing away with the shows out of the 90s, it seemed improbable that our popular television shows in the past would make a return. Thank goodness there’s The 90s Are All That on TeenNick at 12 am on weeknights as well as at 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Mens Halloween Costumes And Chucky

He may not be the biggest, bloodiest, or most intimidating horror movie villain, but Chucky the doll has still traumatized millions of movie-goers with just a few words. “Hi, I’m Chucky. Wanna play?”

Movie Review: The Help (2011)

The Help wishes to be an emotional rollercoaster and eye-opening expose, but succeeds instead as just an uplifting, feel-good movie. Heavy-handed manipulation and expected outcomes mix in for an entertaining history and ethics lesson, but thanks to an overlong runtime, the positive energy isn’t permanent. The acting all around is also refreshing (the highlight being Bryce Dallas Howard), along with the novel-within-a-novel screenplay – the generous amounts of humor through dialogue alleviate the weightier subject matter for an enjoyable revisit to a dark chapter on the road to social equality in a land of unwilling participants.

Large or Small Speakers in Your Home Cinema?

A while back I was thinking of the day when I was a kid and I had saved up all my money to buy a second-hand TV and VCR. People I knew were upgrading and decided to sell their old TV and VCR. When I came home with my new equipment, I connected it with my large old speakers to my even older audio set. I put in a movie on tape and a new world opened up to me.

What’s With All of The Dark Knight Rises Hate?

There’s been a lot of criticism lately towards the scoops coming from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Set pictures, film footage, audio leaks, you name it, we’ve seen it. With fan boys across the globe already branding the film ‘just another terrible third movie’, I wonder, is all the hate justified?

If You Love Doctor Who

Hollywood has long known about the appeal of tours of places seen in movies and behind the scenes. Back in the 1950s Lucy and Ethel wreaked havoc on a bus tour of the homes of famous movie stars. Movie tours are not just for Hollywood anymore and Doctor Who fans are as eager as any to see where their favorite movies and TV episodes were shot.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes Preview – Rebooting the Planet of the Apes

With the release of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, one of Hollywood’s most enduring franchisees gets yet another make-over. Younger audiences think of Tim Burton’s 2001 ‘re-imagination’ of the original Planet of the Apes to be the ‘first’ in the series but to believe that would be a gross injustice to one of the most fascinating ideas ever.

Reviewed: Good Neighbours [2011]

Good Neighbours follows three people who live in the same apartment building in Montreal over the course of Winter in 1995. Spencer (Scott Speedman) is a wheelchair bound introvert who spends all of his time in his flat on the first floor; Victor (Jay Baruchel) who has recently moved to the area since returning from China; and finally Louise (Emily Hampshire), a waitress at a local restaurant who spends most of her time either socialising with her pet cats (Tia Maria and Mozart) or reading up on the local…

Documentaries That Are Better Than Summer Blockbusters

I prefer a documentary over any summer blockbuster. It’s true. My Netflix queue is rife with them. I get so engrossed with the subjects of the documentary because, well, they’re real people. Sometimes documentaries can be just as entertaining as a comedy, or just as heartbreaking as a drama. The best part of watching a documentary is when you think to yourself, “Man, I can’t believe that really happened.”
