The Best Web Comic Now

Is Garfield… Without Garfield. The regular Garfield comic jumped the shark… 15 years ago, and is just horrible, but once you remove Garfield, you get a sad, angst-filled story that is also extremely funny. Have a look at:

Gammalt Mediajox: Ett boktips på TV4

Jag blev inbjuden att tipsa om böcker på TV4 för något år sedan. Jag valde att tipsa om Pullmans fantastiska Mörka Materie-trilogi. För den intresserade finns klippet på youtube nu!

Movie Review: Oceans 13

“So… We’ll put a bunch of really famous guys (yeah, this is a guy-movie, the female lead is nowhere NEAR as famous as the male leads) and another bunch of kind-of-famous actors. And we’ll let them wear a bunch of designer clothes, cool gizmos and set it all in Las Vegas. And the rest will solve itself.”

“Don’t you need a script, Mr Rich & Crazy Producer, sorry, Mr Weintraub?”

“Quiet, you! The rest will solve itself!!!”

“Still, Sir, won’t the public demand an understandable story, some action, some romance, some comedy or even some excitement?”

“They didn’t demand any of those things in the previous movies, did they? As the normal audience is to dumb to understand even the most basic movie, it’s no use even to try to write a logic and understandable story”.

“But… what about the reviewers? Won’t they spot this obvious lame attempt at just earning money from celebrities?”

“No, and even if they do, we’ll make it blatantly obvious that we would like to bribe them, in fact, let’s make the suffering and later rich rewards of the reviewer an entire story arc!”

“You are brilliant, Sir!”

“Let’s get high and drive while intoxicated to celebrate my brilliance, the Hollywood way!”

Now, to be honest, I MIGHT have made up the conversation above. At least the last quite about brilliance and driving. But I have a feeling that the something along those lines must have been uttered at some time during the process of making Oceans 13. It is a horrible movie. To long, to dumb, to far from being even slightly reasonable. And such a HUGE cock-fest (I am referring to roosters, stop having such a dirty mind) that it is simply amazing that this kind of crap gets made at all, let alone on a major release.

Verdict: Don’t see. Seriously.

Movie Review: Hot Fuzz

Hot Fuzz is a parodic movie, made by the same gang that made the wonderful Shaun of the Dead, and not to forget, “Spaced”, one of the better sit-coms in a long, long time. I was, however, more impressed with Shaun than this movie, even though it is a brilliant movie. While I do enjoy Simon Peggs performance, he isn’t really convincing as a top-cop, sadly. What is really brilliant is the sudden, and actually unexpected, turn into wonderful, violent mayhem that occurs a bit into the movie. There are some nice splatter-moments, to be sure, and a lot of parodic scenes, of course. All in all, a very good movie, but not quite up to what I expected.

Verdict: Must See

Movie Review: Breach

Breach is a very good spy-movie. That’s about it, actually, but you’ll probably want me to elaborate a bit? Well, ok… First of, it is well acted. Ryan Phillippe is starting to become a really good actor, but the real master here is the awesome Chris Cooper who really steals the show. This is Oscar material performance, if there ever was one. If it is possible to get an Oscar for playing one of the worst traitors to America, ever, and making him kind of likable. What makes this movie so good, however, is that it is slow, but still tight. It doesn’t concern itself (mostly) with actions and guns, but rather on the development relationships, and the depth of personalities. And it does this really good, in contrast to, for instance, the rather poor The Good Shepherd, that aimed for pretty much the same feeling, but failed so miserably by being boring. This movie, however, is far from boring, especially since one knows it is based on actual events.

Verdict: Must See
