Twilight was the film that defined a generation. A generation of whiny, directionless fuckwits that are too doped up on Adderall and Jesus to understand what passes for quality entertainment anymore. Fuck, I remember when Near Dark was the go-to vampire movies for moody teens. Where have you gone Adrian Pasdar? A lonely nation turns its eyes to you.

Bolt is a reminder that America loves dogs more than people. Well, more than people and talking rats that cook food. You’ve seen this film before in various incarnations. But, you never had Rhino the Hamster to love. It’s a minor footnote in the larger Disney collection, but a fun film to spend an evening watching.
TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER / UNDER THE HOOD
Tales of the Black Freighter / Under the Hood is the cherry on top of the Watchmen media blitz. It’s niche entertainment carved out of a tiny market slot in an already over-crowded marketplace. What are you going to do when you see this on a store shelf on Tuesday? Are you going to make the purchase or are you going to wait for the coming double-dip? Do you have willpower? I don’t think you have it. Therefore, when you resell your copy…I’ll pick this film up for a five-spot. God bless the gun-jumping geeks.
THE PERSONAL CRITERION COLLECTION
want to have Criterions in their collection. Many people pretend to
like half of the films that Criterion releases. But, what about those

Paris, Texas. (click on box art to try and find a copy of this OOP disc)
I own a copy of the OOP release of this film and
revisit it twice a year. Usually, it is to turn someone else on to this
wonderful movie. Aside from it being my favorite Wim Wenders film, it
combines his great eye with a phenomenal script by Sam Shepard and LM
Kit Carson. Wenders brings a European style to filming the American
Mid-west that makes it look almost alien. And Ry Cooder’s trademark
slide guitar provides most of the haunting score.
But the real reason to see this film is Harry Dean Stanton. Holy shit.
No one else could have played the role of Travis. He carries the
tragedies of the past on his hunched shoulders and his eyes (like
always) droop like he hasn’t slept a day during the four years he was
missing in the desert. But there’s a charming, child-like quality he
brings to the character and the scenes where he bonds with his young,
estranged son are simultaneously charming and sad.
