Classic Horror Isn't Dead

Ah, the wonders of 1950's cinema. During this time horror and sci-fi movies were the cream of the crop thanks in part to the hugely successful Universal monsters going back to the previous two decades. However, one studio (Hammer Film Productions) came along and basically stole the show from Universal with their string of popular horror movies that would last for almost twenty years.

Australia Set to Join China in Internet Censorship

Before the Election in Australia, The Labor Party (Formally the Communist Party of Australia 1922-1991)
added a little section to their election campaign promises, to provide controlled internet to "protect" the children. This started with the government providing a filtering service for each household (which was broken in 20 minutes by a kid).

Guys, it's okay! He just wanted his machete back!

I just thought I would give everyone an update on the upcoming rant:

1) I'm still in the process of picking which movie I will rant on. Now please keep this in mind, I will not just go after the movies that are pure shit, I will attack some of the more popular movies out there. Some of them you may actually enjoy and cherish, but that's just life people so suck it up and quit your bitching.

Yesterday was happy Communistcast day!

For those not in the know, yesterday the 250 GB bandwidth limit became official for people using Comcast as their ISP. (Yea right, they'll probably just call up, say I'm over the limit, and do nothing else.) At this point in time, I'd like to point out how retarded their thinking is for coming up for such a stupid idea. What really bugs me is that one of these spokespersons said the following:

"The average user only uses 2-3 gigabytes a month."

Queen of the Damned?! Oh fuck.....

Vampire movies have been a fan favorite for years. The first was the silent film "based" on Stoker's novel Dracula aptly titled Nosferatu starring Max Shreck. After that of course came the hugely popular Universal monsters movies and of course the now classic Dracula starring the late Bella Lugosi. After the success Universal had, everyone got into the monster movie game. Now flash forward about sixty-plus years, and horror movies are still some of the biggest box office draws to this day.

Upcoming rant plus October Reviews

Hey everyone,

I just thought I would pop on here for a minute and update you all as to what I'll be posting here soon.

First, I will be posting a new rant soon over a well-known piece of shit called Queen of the Damned. I've been writing it for a while, and was originally going to be posted before Rambo III, but due to my loyalty to the original books and the first film, most of the rant broke down into mainly four-lettered words and it wasn't making much sense.

The revival of classic gaming

This past week Wario Land Shake It and Mega Man 9 were both released. While both of these games are done in the vein of classic platformers, they also represent the two different schools of thought on how to handle the retrogaming experience.

Appendix to 'Are current consoles truly HD?'

Normally I would have continued onto my next topic, but something I obviously forgot to tackle was one other platform that games are being developed for, the PC. As I recently upgraded my videocard in my Home Theater PC setup, I decided to fire up Unreal Tournament 3 to see how well it would play. First I decided to go 1280x720 at max settings and like I expected it stayed at 60 fps all the time. Then somewhat for humor I decided to try 1920x1080 and surprisingly, it ran dead on.

Rambo III?!

Ah, the 80's, where action movies seemed to be crawling out of the woodwork and onto our movie screens. Some of the biggest action franchises from the last 30 years started out in the eighties. Lethal Weapon, Beverly Hills Cop, Die Hard, Indiana Jones, and unfortunately, Rambo. Now there have been multiple rants on the naming of the movies and how they generally don't make any fucking sense (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEVzPCY2T-g). But for the purposes of this rant I will only be focusing in on the worst of the original three, the aptly titled Rambo III.

Earthsea ::sigh::

::Originally published in September 2008::

What do you get when you take a little Harry Potter, add a dash of Tolkien and throw in a ton of shit? The Sci Fi movie event: Earthsea! Yes, from the same people who would later on bring you such classics as Highlander: The Source (I'll rant on that one once I can finally make it through that glorious cluster-fuck of a movie) and Dracula 3000 (I'm not going to even comment on that piss poor excuse of a vampire movie), comes Earthsea.
