The Thing: Sneak Preview Screening

October 2nd, 2011 geekstar Posted in Film 25 Comments »

Due to a high response requesting free passes, comments have been closed. There are a limited amount of passes. Winners will receive a notification email requesting a mailing address. Thank you.

Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman.

In the thriller The Thing, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they’re infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.

The Thing serves as a prelude to John Carpenter’s classic 1982 film of the same name. Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen, the thriller is produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman (Dawn of the Dead).

Star Wars Reunion…in my living room

September 29th, 2011 geekstar Posted in Art, Film 1 Comment »

So, I’m a fan of Mr. Brainwash. He is the featured “artist” in Banksy’s Exit the Gift Shop film. The film was nominated for an Oscar this past year and it currently can be watched through instant view on Netflix.

If you purchase the DVD,  it includes the super fun “star power” glasses. Their directions state: For maximum viewing pleasure simply put on glasses, start DVD and look out the window.

My friend and I had more fun wearing the star power glasses while playing with two pink light sabers. The glasses make everything look like beautiful holographic rainbows! The hot pink light sabers are from the best store ever, five below.

hello vader.

Anyways, I received “Star Wars Reunion”, a print by Mr. Brainwash, in the mail today. I have had my eye on it for a while. I love it’s old timeyness.

What is your favorite Ryan Reynolds and/or Jason Bateman moment? We have a limited number passes and each pass admits 2 people. Winners will be notified end of this week via email.

IN THEATERS AUGUST 5

Growing up together, Mitch (Reynolds) and Dave (Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they’ve slowly drifted apart.  While Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband and father of three, Mitch has remained a single, quasi-employed man-child who has never met a responsibility he liked.  To Mitch, Dave has it all: beautiful wife Jamie (Leslie Mann), kids who adore him and a high-paying job at a prestigious law firm.  To Dave, living Mitch’s stress free life without obligation or consequence would be a dream come true.

Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave’s worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other’s bodies and proceed to freak the &*#@ out.

Despite the freedom from their normal routines and habits, the guys soon discover that each other’s lives are nowhere near as rosy as they once seemed.  Further complicating matters are Dave’s sexy legal associate, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde), and Mitch’s estranged father (Alan Arkin).  With time not on their side, Mitch and Dave comically struggle to avoid completely destroying each other’s lives before they can find a way to get their old ones back.

Nilbog’in It Up!: Best Worst Movie Troll 2 Remix

January 4th, 2011 geekstar Posted in Film, Giggles 1 Comment »

Last year, my resolution was to “Enjoy More Amazing Films and Music in 2010”. Mission accomplished.

I love old films and Troll 2 did not disappoint. I use the word “film” very generously. This “Best Worst Movie” is the sequel to Troll. However, Troll 2 doesn’t feature trolls but the lesser known goblin from the town of Nilbog. They are “vegetarian” goblins who eat people. Can you get super power strength from a bologna sandwich? Yes.

There are many low budget special effects (goblins wearing burlap sacks and latex masks) and quotable one-liners (“You can’t piss on hospitality!”) in this film. In 2009, the lead child actor, “Joshua”, created a documentary about Troll 2 titled, Best Worst Movie. The documentary revisits many of the original actors, current devotees of the film, and the movie’s Italian director who still doesn’t quite get that the movie is ummm not highly regarded by film critics. It’s said that the Italian director doesn’t speak English very well so the script is full of choppy dialogue and unintended off-color jokes. He insisted that the script be read exactly as he wrote it word-for-word. This all adds up to awesomeness!

This fantastic gem of a film has been remixed to the captivating sounds of Lil’ Jon. I’m sharing this video with you so that you’ll be encouraged to watch Troll 2 asap on your Netflix Instant View! I still need to get my hands on the documentary. I can’t wait!
