Movie Run Down

Man Of Steel

This version of SuperMan is the version of SuperMan if SuperMan was Jesus.  The action was good but made no sense.  Destroy whole cities while fighting?  SuperMan wouldn't allow that.  Kill a villain? SuperMan wouldn't allow that.  Watch his Earth Father get killed... By a Tornado ????? SuperMan wouldn't allow that.  This is a SuperMan movie that SuperMan isn't really in.  Russell Crowe has the best performance in the movie.

Pacific Rim

Great movie, bad promotion.  Great director, bad timing.  If you like Godzilla, Gundam or anything Anime GO SEE IT.  It's done wonderfully.  I just think it got lost in the shuffle of Summer kid friendly films and got buried.  Great scenes by Ron Pearlman.  Action packed.  Hope its a sequel but it didn't make it's money back so that might not happen.  I'm glad it turned out so good though.  Hopefully other director's will take note on how to do Live Action the proper way.


This is a 2003 Korean film that is getting a remake by Spike Lee ( I'm not sure why)  later this year or early next.  This movie sickens some people by the "twist ending."  I don't really think the ending was a twist at all and you should kinda see it coming actually.  But the intriguing part is finding out why he was imprisoned for 15 years and by who.  Is kinda stupid when you think about it.  It's long too like 2 hours and there are some slow parts to the movie.  I don't wanna see the remake though.

World War Z

This was a good zombie flick.  As usual the Government doesn't know anything.  There is a sequel in the works.

Now You See Me

This was a good movie that kept you guessing.  Far from the realm of believable it was just something cool to watch.  Woody Harrelson is always entertaining in my book.  There is probably going to be a sequel to this too unfortunately.  Hollywood doesn't know how to let things be great.

This Is The End

The funniest parts of this movie are at the beginning and most of them are by Michael Cera.  After Cera dies it's kinda limp.  It gets way more Biblical then I thought it was going to be.  And Danny McBride pretty much ends up playing the same characters over and over. The end was great though.

Rapture - Palooza

Craig Robinson is the ONLY reason to see this movie.  He provides the only laughter in this film.  Another End Of the World movie where all the believers ascended to Heaven and the non - believers are stuck on Earth with multlple plagues and demons.  Oh and Craig plays the Anti- Christ.

I think I saw more movies I just don't remember them.

Police have nothing better to do

In this article I read HERE Harford County Police underwent a 2 YEAR investigation for a Weed ring.  WEED.  4 guys ages 26 and 25 were the main movers.  2 YEAR investigation!! How about the cold cases out there?  I'm sure there are cases were families wished Police would spend 2 years finding clues and looking for there missing family member.  Point is these people busted will probably only do about 3-8 months and be right back home. I mean, it's weed.  It's damn there legal all over the country now.

Movie Rundown

Semi - political thriller with a little bit of misdirection thrown in.   Powerful cast, not a powerful movie.  Mark Wahlberg's storyline really had nothing to do with the entire movie, they could have made him a stronger character.  Plus his relationship with the girl dragged the movie on about an extra 20 minutes and that had nothing to do with the main plot either.  Lots of wasted time.

50/50 is a movie about what happens when a young man gets cancer.  This movie was funny and sad.  His girlfriend was a real asshole and she probably shoulda got hit by a car or something.

Man, is there a good part 3 of anything?   This movie was slow, long and boring.  Marvel is just taking people's money at this point.  The franchise feels stale already.  The 2nd movie wasn't that good either.  And that Iron Patriot uniform just looked silly.  For as long as Iron has been around you'd think they would have something original to bring to the table.  But no it's just the same old "Iron Man."

Boy for a comedy this was far  from it.  I think I laughed twice.  I didn't even now Steve Buscemi was supposed to be in this.  I think the undertones of what today's version of "magic" is far outweighs whatever comedy was supposed to be in this film.  Magic today is sitting in a ice block for 4 days, or being buried for 4 days or not peeing for 4 days.  That's not magic, these are stunts.  Stupid stunts at that.

Movie wasn't bad abit odd at times and kinda gross.  The plan was dumb from the get go and the trouble just got higher and higher from there.

2 hours and 20 minutes!!!!  The first half of the movie is good then you get tired and go "damn this movie is still on?"  It shows great duality and corruption and how memories can haunt you forever.  Sometimes with these movies you have to say to yourself.  Man this wouldn't happen at all right here, but it does because somebody wrote it that way.  Dude got ahead of himself and showed the unintelligent person he truly was.

This one here is long and inexplicable.  SPOILER!!! When he meets his clone and goes to the other station (52) HOW COME THE BRITISH CHICK DOESN'T ASK WHY HE IS WEARING 49?!?!?!?! She asks if he is OK and either touches his chest where the numbers are.  Plus she monitors every time he goes out but she didn't mention that encounter at all. BLAH BLAH LONG LONG CRAP!

This movie really made no sense now that I'm really thinking about it.  If Tim Roth wanted to kill the kid he shoulda just killed him instead of doing everything else but that.  And the girl just kinda popping up in the middle of the woods was BULLSHIT!

Good political film.  Shows you just how screwed up the voting systems is.

Another long ass Judd Apatow film.  If his movies were half the time the would be twice as good.  The movie had funny parts but it gets DRY around the 2 hour mark.

Nova Starz - Dark Lovely Places...for the #Ragers

The songstress Nova Starz releases her EP Dark Lovely Places...for the #Ragers .  Completely produced by Street Scott this EP is a journey.  It takes you musically to no place that a singer locally has gone.  Its a completely different feel then anything that you are used to.  There is a video coming soon for one of my favorite songs, Not Surprised.




5 Reasons I Hate Self - Check out'

1) The gottdamn thing just stops and tells you to "remove all items from the belt." I WAS ALMOST DONE!!

2) The people ahead of me always take 20 years to put their items in a bag and leave.

3) When getting items out of the bakery you have to search for like 3 years to find what it is you are looking for and then may end up paying the wrong price.

4) It might decide to not work and start blinking for no reason at all.

5) Most times its actually better and quicker to get in the regular line with real people just so I don't go crazy!

Killing Them Softly

This movie for all intended purposes followed the structure to being a good film, but something was missing.  Was it gory?  Yes.  Good amount of violence.  Was it long? No.  Right within the normal 1hr 30min range and I like that.  The story line was simple.  Not too many characters.  But something was just kinda ehhhh about this one.  I'm a Brad Pitt fan and I like Ray Liotta too.  Maybe the belief that some of these characters were too dumb for there own good was just too hard to believe.  Maybe the ending was empty.  Maybe the politial undertones of Barack and G.H.W. Bush were too heavy or in the wrong context for this sort of film.   James Gandolfini  plays an odd role of a down and out hit man but may give the best performance of the whole movie.  And he is only in 2 scenes! It's something to watch but not great.

Flacco - The Chip Kid

Its all about the CHIP!  In any sporting event, that's actually all its about.  EVER!  Some people are asking if they paid too much for Flacco.  But the thing you gotta understand is they aren't really paying Flacco they are paying for the Championship.  Imagine what Jerry Jones would pay if he knew he could have a Championship in 4 years.  He would pay double what they paid Flacco.  Elite or not isn't really even the case .  It's all about the CHIP!  The Timberwolves paid KG $160M when he first came out.  The Timberwolves have no chips and barely reached the playoffs.  The money and who it goes to is relative because people are paying for that ring/trophy/cup.   I look at it as they didn't pay Flacco for Flacco they paid for the Rings.  Atlanta would love if Matt Ryan could have brought them a Championship but it's just not for them.  If the Falcons organization knew that Flacco would win this Chip in 4 years time they would have picked him over Matt Ryan.  Steve Bisciotti is a smart dude, so I'm sure he has a way to keep the pivotal players on the squad ( I hope).

NBA Dunk Contest

NBA All - Star weekend is wayyyyyy wayyyyyy better than the NFL Pro Bowl, but the Slam Dunk contest is getting weaker and weaker by the year.  I haven't seen a good since Blake Griffen jumped over a car and that was about 3 years ago.  At this point dudes are just running out of tricks.  I'd much rather see a Streetball/Playground type of game.  Like a Rucker League Game or an AND1 game instead of the Dunk Contest.  It's boring its pointless and its a waste of time.  The big dogs like LeBron and Blake don't return to it.  It's like it's a one a done type of a deal.  BOOOOOOOOOOO!  If this was show it would have been cancelled a long time ago.  Spice it up or just get rid of it.



Louis CK - 2008

I watch Louis' show on FX and stumbled across this stand-up from 2008.  Funny stuff if you have an hour to stare at a computer screen.

The Master

This is an odd very very odd film.  Joaquin Phoenix plays Freddie Quill a Ex-Navy man who is trying to find something to do after the War is over in 1950.  1st off he is bat shit crazy.  He humps on and finger bangs a woman made out of sand that some of his Navy buddies made on the beach.  He beats the shit out of some guy he was taking a picture of for no reason.  I can only guess he had some type of PTSD because of the war, but he later explains that his mother was in a loony bin so who knows.  I can't really say what this movie is about.  It's not really about anything at all.  A man trying to find himself?  I guess.  A man trying to fix someone? I guess.  A buddy film? Hardly.  This film wasn't about a damn thing.  I think you just have to look at it as a chapter in a man's life and that's it.   Joaquin Phoenix gives a GREAT performance of a complete crazy person though so that's something I guess.

Movie Roundup

Boy oh Boy, I had such high hopes for Gangster Squad.  This was action-less and lame.  The re-editing and re-shooting of this movie killed it.  It'll be on cable next month.  Boring and kinda pointless.

I kinda like these new age war films, except for Green Zone which was boring as Hell.  This movie shows the somewhat brilliance and very idiotic tendencies of the American Government.   It was directed well and never really hit a dull point.

This movie was unexpectedly good.  Frank is an old cat burglar and his son gets him a helper robot. Frank then teaches the robot to steal.  Good film.

This is a buddy movie.  It's like the bucket list for old gangsters.  It's something to watch.  6 outta 10.


It's been a long season and a long road.  For some this is where the road ends but it's been a great ride.  The Ravens dominated the 49ers up until the 35 minute power outage.  San Fransico only had 6 points both scored by David Akers (he even missed a kick).  I think that 35 minutes gave the 9er's time to SNAP OUT OF IT!  They realized that they were indeed in the Super Bowl and indeed losing.  They came back BLAZING!  Amazing throws amazing run game.  Ray Rice's fumble got the 49er's right back in the game.

Ray Lewis and Randy Moss were non-factors in this game.  Ed Reed showed up, Ed Dickson showed up?! Pitta and Boldin were key factors.  The last 2 minutes time management was EXCELLENT. Taking the safety was a brilliant move.  I don't really think Flacco should have gotten the MVP, I think it should have went to Jacoby Jones.  But Flacco has been exceptional during these Playoffs.  Now it's all about next season.  Who is staying who is going.  We shall see.

Super Bowl XLVII Ravens vs. 49ers

And here we are! The final showdown.  Ravens Vs. 49ers.  Brother vs. Brother in the Har - Bowl.  With Beyonce on the Halftime show.  I think this is going to be one of the highest rated Super Bowls ever.  I think the Ravens should win this game.  As the only real weakness I've seen is our defense against the run game. I think the emotions on the Ravens are so high that everyone will be playing at their absolute best so the run game may not be a factor.  The kinda messed up thing is Jim Harbaugh looks like a GENIUS for benching Alex Smith.  I still think that it was still a distasteful move but look where it got them.  Everything has to be perfect for this final win.

XXL Freshman Cover 2013

XXL Magazine is about to release its annual Freshman Cover.  There have been some talk about who should make the list (some pretty bad choices) but here's my take.

Action Bronson - I don't rock with him like that but I respect his grind even if he does sound like an SNL version of Ghostface.

Childish Gambino - Camp = Classic Album Royalty = Dope Mixtape ... + he sings and produces?!?!?!

Riff Raff -- If Lil B made the cover from his buzz you gotta give it up to Jody Highroller.

Ab - Soul - Solo been killin' for awhile now let that man EAT.

Joey Badass -  The kid has been on his game of that 90's flow

Troy Ave -- he is holding it down for the streets of NY.

Trinadad James - his 2 million dollar deal, the buzz, the GOLD.  He's gotta get it.

Casey Veggies - the kid has been doing it for a minute.  He has the drive but he needs that hit.

Angel Haze - after releasing her mixtape Classick and scrapping with Ms. Banks, Angel Haze should grace the cover.

Last one is a toss up between --- Chris Webby, Tito Lopez and Trouble.

That's my list I'm probably missing a few artists just because I'm thinking as I go.  Childish Gambino isnt' even an option but that has never stopped them before.

The American Dynasty

Three Sovereigns and the Five Emperors (Sān Huáng Wǔ Dì) ruled China for 782 years.  That was the longest ruling house in China.  Every Dynasty ends.  Every ruler sees it's end.  Whether through natural causes or through a nasty takeover.  The Spanish ruled.  The Mayans ruled, The Aztecs ruled and America ruled / rules.  Think about the entirety of that statement.  America has only been established for 236 years as it was broke away from the British in 1776.   The years that followed America become the super power for manufacturing, inventions, business and health care.  It seems now though with China having more money than us and America owing China so much monetarily that America is on the decline.  America is the first one to be asked for help, military wise and financially.  And the first one blamed when things go wrong in those situations.

Between the political structure of the US, the declining value of the dollar and the super Corporate nature of America, I'm just waiting for the implosion.  I believe in the next 50 years tombstones will have corporations names on them among the names of the deceased.  Almost every sports Stadium is owned and named for a Corporation.  Corporations even have stake in election outcomes.  Comcast owns NBC, Disney owns Marvel and Google owns everything else.

The US dollar has seen a great decline over the last 20 years.   The dollar used to command a great return but now the Euro and Pound are dominant.  Jobs are down while drugs and guns are way up.  America acts as the Boss of everyone and can't even control itself.  We are about 25th in the World in education.  Our grip seems to be slipping in the areas in which we were once a force.  If we don't get a hold of things soon we just may disappear like the Ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Greeks.

Old Glory Indeed


NFL Post Season 2013


Last weeks game BAL v. DEN was the greatest game I have ever seen IN MY LIFE.

SF v. ATL  winner --- SF -- If Colin Kaepernick has the same type of game like he had last week, The Falcons are in trouble!  -- Plus never had faith in the Falcons.  But even with that being said Atlanta is due they have been knocking at the door for 5 years.
BAL v. NE  winner -- BAL

Let the Harbaugh Bowl BEGIN!!

Django Unchained

First of all Django is a classic!  98% of the people I know that have seen the film agree.  As a fan of Quentin Tarantino films this falls right in line.  Its everything that you could ask for, action, humor, violence and a nip slip from Kerry Washington.  The biggest uproar about the film is the use of the word "nigger" throughout the movie.  While in 1858, in America, in the South White people certainly weren't greeting Black people (slaves) saying "Hello Fine Sir (or Madame)"  so I really am confused as to what the big deal is.

Some people inferring to the film say "slavery wasn't funny,"  indeed it was not, but these same people had nothing to say about Tarantino's last film Inglorious Bastards and Hitler was being mad fun of. So the Holocaust and World War II is hilarious?  I get it, you only need to be vocal when it's against your ancestry alone?

At it's core this is a love story and it should be celebrated as such.  Some things didn't make sense and some things are hilarious.  I take no offense to a movie, especially a period piece set in America in the deep south during slavery.  In a world where people want the truth and want people to "keep it real" why be afraid of the how it was.  I do understand for some that the brutality towards black people during those times that were depicted in the movie was extreme but those were extreme times.  Additionally if it was watered down then people would have had something to say about Tarantino down playing the brutality of black people during those times.

Interestingly enough it seems that the issue is that because Tarantino is white people feel uneasy about the use of "nigger."  So if it was a black director with the same dialogue then what?  It's ok?  That's not for me to figure out.  I enjoyed the film and look forward to the next Tarantino movie.  It's still weird that a movie can invoke so much uproar when people don't have anything to say or any action against the everyday injustices that go on daily.

What's that nigger doing on that NAG?

Postseason 2013 pt.2

BAL v. DEN --- winner --- BAL  --- the only problem is our corners -- Payton knows it --- everyone knows it --- if we can get to Payton and control the corners BAL should win.  I'm not really worried about their run game.
GB v. SF  --- winner ---  GB -- I hope that SF wins really BUT I think and hope that Harbaugh benching Alex Smith bites him in the ass.
SEA v. ATL --- winner ---  SEA  --- as weird as it seems nothing really impresses me about ATL --- they are either going to win the Superbowl or lose this game.
HOU v. NE   --- winner --- NE --- the Hoody has been waiting .

Movie Rundown

DREDD was better than I thought it would be, but that's not saying much because I didn't expect much. I never have really saw the 1st Judge Dredd film and never want to see it.  This had much action and violence but the effects of the "slomo" drug in the film was done a bit too much at times making it a little gimmicky.  But  for the most part it was a good film.

Flight started off great and John Goodman really stole the show.  Denzel really is a great actor, though he has the same mannerisms in every film.  The ending of this movie crashes just like the plane did though.  My thought is, if a movie is over 2 hours it should have a good ending, I mean you make people watch it for that long they should get rewarded.

As a fan of the Anime I think this live action version was done well.  Ruroni Kenshin is about a warrior how has changed his ways from killing.  He is still a bad motherfucka though.  I think Korea makes these live action movies?  But if so they do a damn fine job.  The only complaint is that its about 2hrs and 15 minutes and a few scenes could be taken out or just shortened to fit in a 1hr 45 range.  



NFL Postseason

Going 139W / 82L isn't that bad, I'll shoot higher next year.

This postseason has some interesting first games.

CIN v. HOU   --- winner ---  HOU --- Cincy has a lot of fight in them though so it should be a solid game.
MIN v. GB   --- winner ---   GB  --- I just don't think MIN has it in them. And Rodgers is still mad.
IND v. BAL   --- winner ---   BAL    --- emotional game on both sides.
SEA v. WSH  --- winner ---   WSH   --- With SEA being on the road I think RG3 and the boys should win --- but it should be a great match up!
