My computer has not been doing to well these past few days which does explain the lack of posts that have not been appearing on this site. As I mentioned before I do want to start a vlog very soon, but I have to think of a compelling enough idea that would last fifteen minutes. I don't have any cool editing software and my tits are not that big, so I can't imagine anyone who would want to take time out of their day to view me. But trust me, something is in the works.
I have Netflix again,but now when I try to watch a movie it says it needs to download a new program to view it. What complete bullshit,I have never needed to download anything to watch a movie before . Besides the last time I did, it caused my computer a lot of problems. The same ones I'm having now. Thank God for public libraries. I get to see a bunch of classic and independent features that are not available on Netflix, and I also get the special features that are not included when it's streaming either. I think the last movie I watched streaming was "Jeff, Who Lives at Home". It's not really worth writing a review about, because the whole movie can be summed up in this haiku.

This is mainly just a pilot to test everyone's interest in this. Every week or so I am going to be posting two separate reviews from two different writers on one movie. Next I will gage audience interests by hosting a poll on the sidebar to see which review was better. At the end of the week that person will get bragging rights and then be put into a championship round at the end of summer. Makes sense, good. Are you ready for the first movie. No, well too late because here it comes.

The Invisible War.
Writers: Amy Ziering,Kirby Dick
Director: Kirby Dick.
** and a 1/2 *'s out of four.
I love documentaries that bring to light certain topics that are usually ignored by the general media. Movies like this can help evoke change because it gets people talking and the subject presented here is one that needs to be addressed. The main point of "The Invisible War" wasn't that these woman were raped while serving in the U.S. Army. It was that their stories were completely ignored by the superior officers and in some cases even higher. The sexual torment these women went through is devastating enough and then to hear their foes got promoted while they were denied health insurance. It's enough to make you sick. I urge you all right now to contact your congressmen and demand change in our Military and Army branches because this type of shit needs to stop.

Hello Hello everyone.
Today marks the start of summer because the blockbuster season rolls into theatres everywhere this weekend. Hell in even places where there is no sun or people can't afford the luxury of electricity. There is the start of the summer blockbuster season. Although this year there are not as many titles I am excited to see as I was other years. I thought I would still share with you the ones I want to see the most. Now I left a lot off this list because these are the ones I want to see in theatres. There are many that I want to watch but I can check those out at home. The rest are ones I will gladly spend money on.
Throughout the history of the cinema, casinos have been a great inspiration for many movie makers. Naturally the ways in which modern casinos are depicted, along with the modern ways in which the old casino are depicted, are very different today than they were depicted in the old silent movies and early talkies. This isn’t just a quirk of modern filmmakers' fashion as casinos have changed dramatically as has the image that most people have of them. Once seen as a preserve for the richer and more aristocratic members of society, today casinos are far more cosmopolitan, and it is that which comes out in modern movies. Just as the perceived ethos of casinos has changed, so have the games that are played in them.
Early movies tended to feature games such as chemin de fer (a form of baccarat played by high rollers) and roulette, always a great cinematographic backdrop which oozed both glamour and excitement. However, although roulette still features strongly in casino movies, chemin de fer has been largely replaced by more popular games such as TEXAS Hold’em Poker. For instance, while in Ian Flemings’ original novel Casino Royale and in the first "Casino Royale"movie the game that James Bone played against Le Chiffre the SMERSH paymaster was baccarat, in the latest remake the game was replaced by one of TEXAS Hold’em Poker.
Poker in its various forms features in many movies and sometimes it is depicted as dark and threatening, while in others it is treated as glamorous and exciting. Some movies, for instance "Rounders", have achieved cult status amongst the poker playing fraternity. Card counting has featured in many movies including "21", the true story of card counters from MIT to "RainMan", starring Dustin Hoffman as an “idiot savant” with a photographic memory with a penchant for counting cards. Naturally in these movies the featured game is blackjack. However, even though it is rarely central to the plot, the most ubiquitous movie casino game of all is slots; the game is shown in just about every movie in the genre.

It's been quite a few months since I last posted one of these articles, but I had problems trying to find an actress that would fit good here. I can't just put any girl on here just because I think she looks hot. Every single woman who has been on this list so far have been very talented within their field, and they just happen to be very beautiful. I thought for this entry I would give praise to an actress who fits these criteria and then some. That's right, I bring you the work of Naomi Watts.
