Gallowwalkers (2013)

Gallowwalkers (2013)

Mix in a little supernatural with a little Western and you get a movie like this.

Wesley Snipe's got some good merits for this type of role with all those Blade movies in his back pocket. The setting's gritty; dusty and filled with deaf and voilence. The plot's one of vengeance, of good and bad, love and hate, you know the type.

It's gritty, slow-paced and features a cast of pretty intense actors. Good stuff.

 rated 3/5: not bad

Bulletproof (1996)

Bulletproof (1996)

I wasn't expecting much of this movie. What I was expecting was: yet another black and white (as in one black and one white character) cop movie and one more generic attempt at being as racially fair and appealing to a broad mass of movie viewers as possible - there is a stereotype bound to movies like this for a reason, but it turns out it wasn't really like that.

Sandler didn't win me over till the latter half, but he can actually be a pretty convincing actor when he sets his mind to it. So could the other guy btw, though he did get on my nerves a bit with all his accusations. Parts of the movie were a mess, but what set it aside from most of these movies was that they actually mixed some real action in with the sloppy comedy, like people getting shot in their heads and eyeballs. It was a bit more obscene and violent than I'd expected, and I'm not saying that specifically is an appeal that sets this movie apart from others, but it bodes for surprise and variation, which does. It's a pretty basic action movie otherwise; maybe you'll remember it - maybe you won't. It was worth the watch.

Inside Job (2010)

 Inside Job (2010)

If you ever wondered what brought on that huge financial crisis a few years back - the one where global economy almost toppled over, people lost their jobs and Iceland when bankrupt - you might want to see this. It was an interesting documentary, with plenty of revelations and insights, and above all a moral: there's no need for greed. What surprised me more than all I learned within the film however, was that Matt Damon was the narrator! I think this is the first time I watch a documentary voiced by a famous actor, so that was something else. There's not much to say about this movie: it does its job: it informs, in a varied and seriously entertaining way - I mean it's serious business - I mean it's business, seriously. Good movie.

 rated 4/5: fo shizzle

Favorite YouTube Music 2013

Thought I'd gather together some highlights from the past year, some stuff I've probably posted before, but never in collected form. I recently sent a list of 'stuff I listen to' to a long lost friend, and thought I'd post it here as well. Took a while to rinse out my real favorites from the past year, but here you go, music I could listen to forever:
