What The Geeks Have Been Watching

A collection of other things we’ve been watching this week. Richard has been taking in the Japanese Film Festival and still had time to watch “Immortals”, “The Muppets”, “Ages of Love”, “The Orator”, “Fighting Fear” and micro reviews “Moneyball”. David also saw “Immortals” and “The Muppets” but hated “30 Minutes or Less”. Josh also saw “The Immortals” but most of his week was taken up catching up on game reviews.

Feature Film Review

‘Shark Night 3D’ directed by David R. Ellis and written by Will Hayes & Jesse Studenberg. It stars Sara Paxton, Dustin Milligan, Chris Carmack, Katharine McPhee, Chris Zylka, Alyssa Diaz, Joel David Moore, Sinqua Walls and many other expendable cast members that we have practically never heard of before.

A weekend at a lake house in the Louisiana Gulf turns into a nightmare for seven vacationers as they are subjected to shark attacks. Source: IMDB.

Our Verdict: David R. Ellis does it again, he proves that he has no idea what he is doing behind the camera. Flat characters and the most ridiculous plot reveal in recent memory. After “Piranha 3D’ proved that audiences wanted gore, boobs and fun in their monster movies, “Shark Night 3D” waters it down so much that you barely see any one munched and there is no nudity whatsoever. We have seen Disney cartoons with more edge than this soggy monster movie.

Entertainment Buzz

Universal Chief Ron Meyer slams his own movies – refreshing.

The new trailer for “Snow White and the Huntsman” – Not quite what I expected.

Billy Crystal returns to the Oscars as host.

“The Muppets” haven’t quite finished with the parody trailers yet.

Lists of Five

This week our Lists of Five: Five Films Where We Want The Cast to Be Finished Off Faster. Ever watched a film where you just wanted the killer to hurry up and finish them all off so you can go home? Yeah us to, here are five of them.

Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.
