DTV Madness: Titanic 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bet you never thought that they'd make this movie. Well, you're right. Technically, "they" didn't. But someone else did! Yup, our good friends at Asylum Films, who brought us such mockbusters as Transmorphers, The Da Vinci Treasure and The Day the Earth Stopped, produced this spiritual sequel to one of the biggest movies of all time. Nope, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't come back from the dead and no, Kate Winslet doesn't do a walk-in cameo. This is a brand new story placed in present day with a brand new Titanic dubbed "The Titanic II".

Titanic 2 takes place exactly 100 years after the first Titanic sank. To commemorate the occasion, a new Titanic is created with a much stronger and more durable design. It tries to outdo the original Titanic, by completing the course that the original ship set out to do. Unforunately for the Titanic II, the world isn't what it once was, and is now threatened by the dangers of global warming. For you see, the melting ice caps in the north are causing giant tidal waves in the Atlantic — waves coming straight for the Titanic II.

So imagine everything you loved about the original Titanic; the grandeur, the romance, the suspense, Billy Zane. Now take away all of that and what you get is Titanic 2. This movie SUCKED! It was so bad in every way but going into it, I knew it was going to suck. I watched and laughed at the trailer, then promised myself that I would watch this movie just so that I could tell people that I watched Titanic 2. Almost like an anti-badge of honor. Let me tell ya folks, it wasn't worth it!

The tip off should have been the knowledge that it was directed by and starred none other than Shane Van Dyke, who also brought us the bombastic Transmorphers 2: Fall of Man last year. Unfortunately, quality and Shane don't got together in a sentence, unless that sentence is "Shane's movies have no redeemable quality". It kinda sucks because I love bad movies, but even I could only stomach so much. Yes, bad acting, bad script and a shoddy production. The thing that's laughable and made the movie semi-watchable was the unintentionally funny production. That is, the whole movie looks like it was shot in a hotel. Okay, so maybe it's not that funny, but still.

So, in case you don't catch my drift: don't watch this movie. However, do watch the trailer (embedded below) and have a laugh. Share it with your friends, because I bet they'll think you're joking, but you're not because "they" actually made this. The nerves of these people. Imagine how much a charity could have used the money they spent making this trash. Til next time, later geeks!

REVIEW HAIKUS!!!! (#3)

It's time for another edition of Review Haikus; a feature I like to write when I'm too lazy to write out full reviews~!!! The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Tony Scott schlockfest~! All his movies seem the same. A needless remake. Denzel's a bad-ass. Given up on Travolta. 1 of 2 ain't bad. Public Enemies Well? Disappointed. I expected more from Mann. The pacing felt off. Acting was good though. Man-crush on Depp and Bale. 5 more syllables! Saw VI Yes, another Saw. Harder to tell them apart. Blood, guts, bad story. Why more Saw movies? Each movie makes less and less. End this series now. ====== Later geeks!

Sam Raimi's Dragging Someone To Hell!!!

It's great to see Sam Raimi back in his form with his latest entry Drag Me To Hell . Simply glorious, it is a horror geek's dream. This is the Sam we all know and love from Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness , before he got all caught up in the comic book geek universe of Spider-Man . After 10 years (from the first time I watched Evil Dead 2 ), he has remained my favourite film director... although he did try my patience with Spider-Man 3 . I know this euphoria that I'm feeling now will be short lived, as even as I type this review, Raimi is already at work on the pre-production of Spider-Man 4 (yay?). So what is there to say about Drag Me To Hell ? This is the way a summer movie should be, touching on all those senses that make movie going an actual experience. There were thrills, chills, laughs and cheers; the way things should be! Drag Me To Hell tells a story of a young loan officer named Christine, who in an effort to advance her own career, has to turn down a

Lt. Aldo Raine wants his scalps!!!!!!!!!!!!

I missed The Inglorious Basterds during its theatrical run and it's a shame too because I'm a fool for Tarantino movies. But I finally got to see it this weekend and I'm happy to say that I mostly enjoyed it. I don't think it's his best movie, but it was damned entertaining. The Inglorious Basterds takes place during World War II and tells its story by following three different groups of characters: from Lt. Aldo Raine and his squad of soldiers infamously known as the Basterds, Col. Hans Landa, a Nazi colonel better known as "The Jew Hunter", and from a young Jewish girl named Shosanna, who had her family murdered by Col. Landa. We follow the Basterds in their Nazi killing business (and business is good) as they lay out a plan to take out several high ranking officials all at once. We follow Shosanna as she operates her theater and lays down her own plans in exacting revenge on the Nazis. And of course, the "Jew Hunter" is hot on their trai
