Observe and report

This is a supposed comedy in which a mall cop tries to get together with the “hot girl” and stop a flasher and find out who is stealing from the mall and also join the real police. I hated it. Hated and despised it. With a fiery fiery passion.

I blame he-who-blogged-once-and-then-never-again because he brought it into my home.

Before I go any further I will say one thing: Do NOT watch this film.

Max Payne

I knew going to see this film that I’d be disappointed. Was a big fan of the game but I’d heard negative things about this film. Often when that happens you go to the cinema with your bucket of popcorn and are pleasantly surprised that the film isn’t as dreadful as you’d feared. Unfortunately that just isn’t the case with Max Payne.

the basic plot involves detective Max Payne who is trying to find the 3rd man of a gang that killed his wife and child. To that end he has moved to the cold case department, where he sits, pretty much alone and doing the whole brooding thing. Then another murder might provide a clue as to the identity of the killer.

Micah

ISBN: 0515140872 Series: Anita Blake #13 /p> It was half past dawn when the phone rang. It shattered the first dreams of the night into a thousand peices so that I couldn’t even remember what the dream had been about. I’m not really sure why I picked this book up, after the last few turned […]

Moon Dance

ISBN: 0812511271Have no real idea why I bothered to buy this book. I picked it up, read the blurb and knew it wouldn’t be good. After all on the front cover is an extract from a Locus review:

A historical romance, a Dickensian chronicle, of the American West, and a brutally violent werewolf epic… Moon Dance is simply one of the finest fantasy novels of the year

The Matrix Revolutions

V disappointing, think they really should have stopped after the first film and let the audience make up the end themselves. The film starts off pretty much where Reloaded ended, with Neo and Bane (Bain?) unconscious and lying in the same medical facility. Pretty quickly we learn that Neo is in a place between the […]
