Netflix Review: Atlas Shrugged: Part One

I physically had to watch this film.  I have had a love for Atlas Shrugged since I first picked the book up ten years ago.  Since then I try and read it once a year, and have mostly succeeded.  If you have been to this site before, you know that I very rarely watch any movie more than once.  So reading a 1000 page book over and over again should tell you how much this book means to me.  Click here if you are interested in why I love Atlas Shrugged so much.

Ryan’s Top 10

A couple of weeks ago, I added this Request for Top 10’s to 47 Reviews.  Since then I have been assembling my own.  To explain my process: I brainstormed a large group of movies that I thought would be on my list.  Then I wrote them all out on individual pieces of paper in order to make a visual list.  On that list I would compare two movies at a time with the question, “If I was trapped on a desert island with a solar cell and a computer that only had one of these movies on it, which one would I want?”

Wanderlust Review

See how it looks like they don’t really care? Neither will you.

We have Paul Rudd teaming back up with David Wain (who also wrote and directed Role Models) for a comedy with what seems to be a never ending list of comedians about life on a commune.  Oh, excuse me, intentional community.  I was pretty excited to see this one.  Now the questions is did it live up to the expectations set by Role Models?

Netflix Review: I Saw the Devil

I Saw the Devil has been in my queue for a while.  I heard long ago that it is brutal, but is still an amazing movie.  Last night, the stars aligned and I was subjected to this film.  The first thing you should know is that I Saw the Devil was made in South Korea.  If you have ever seen films from South Korea, then you know that when I say this sucker is brutal that I am not talking Saw brutal.  I am talking Old Boy brutal.

47 Reviews 100th Review: Black Dynamite

Everybody was kung fu fi- WATCH OUT HE’S GOT A GUN!

Ryan:

“Your knowledge of scientific biological transmogrification is only outmatched by your zest for kung-fu treachery!” 

What film could possibly be good enough to be the 100th review on 47 Reviews?  Black Dynamite, you know that’s right.  I was lucky enough to meet the man, the myth, the legend Jonny Green just under two years ago.  When we got together the geek orgy of movie love that erupted from us was so massive, Black Dynamite is the only man alive who could have possibly mastered it.
