Welcome back for the weekend forecast, a weekly rundown of new movies with an eye towards the fully baked cinema experience. Shark Night, Apollo 18 – The Scary This weekend is headlined by a couple of scary movies. While I am not a fan, I know there is a large contingent of stoners that love the gross [...]
For years, My Morning Jacket has been at the forefront of the chronically blazing jam band genre. They have released a live double album and played a late night Bonaroo set that strove to reach tomorrow’s dawn. With such strong herbal credibility, their new album, Circuital, along with anything else they release, should be of [...]
Firstly, Avatar gave me a big, blue boner. I can’t wait to see the Na’vi cosplayers at Comic Con this year. Though there won’t be maybe people who can pull off anything but “chubby Na’vi”. Those CGI fuckers had like 0% body fat. The fact that I felt conflicted about Avatar is probably a good [...]
I dig Diablo Cody. I’m not too hip to admit that I follow her on twitter. I have watched Juno three times and rooted for her in the Oscars ™. I am not the horror fan that Zog is, but I enjoy the freedom filmmakers have in the genre. Imagining that freedom coupled with a [...]
Ahh,,, The coming of age story. It is one of the most popular genres. Before media, coming of age was institutionalized in religious ceremonies (often with a little pharmacological input). In a quick turn around the interwebs, it appears that the concept is universal. In fact, 3.3 million years ago, our ancestors were already stretching [...]
As a kid, I remember video stores. Walking down aisles lined with empty boxes. Some stacked in front of a colorless, odorless VHS container; Others alone proudly boasting that their film was out to rent. These were the days before the internet and magnificent sites, such as the one you are on now. Movie decisions [...]

Spike Jonze breathes Hollywood into the iconic children’s book. With all of the buzz and the breathtaking trailer, can it live up to the hype?
Okay, full disclosure… I play in a zombie themed rock band. I’ve been on zombie walks. I watched Night of the Living Dead when I was 11 and my mom got us our fist VCR… so I’m a bit of a zombie enthusiast I guess. But I didn’t enjoy Zombieland for the zombies. They weren’t zombies in the Romeroean sense. They weren’t what zombie purists would call “real” zombies. They are infected like in 28 Days Later. Which is okay. It’s not really important to the story what kind of zombie they are. The zombies are really only a motivational McGuffin.
Ever since I heard the lurid details of The Girlfriend Experience, I have been fascinated to see what Steven Soderberg was up to. You see, he made a low budget film about a high budget prostitute staring a real life porn star. And not some surgically mutilated chemically peeled one. Sasha Grey (if that is [...]
