Review: Franz Ferdinand’s You Could Have It So Much Better

Friday, October 21st, 2005

This is one of the few times a band’s sophomore album is superior to their first one. And I think that in general the strenght of the second album really speaks to actual talent. Most bands show start to show their weakness by number two and send themselves on the path of obscurity. This album […]

Review: Serenity

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

I was incredibly and pleasantly surprised at how good this movie was. The preview didn’t do much for me… it looked like an annoying B level sci-fi movie… when in fact, it is an awesome B level sci-fi movie.

There were good arguements on both sides, but it was obvious whose side they had. I think I’m going to make sure my […]

Movie Review: Robot Stories

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

Robot Stories is a collection of short films by Greg Pak. All of the stories center around robots in some way. Whether it be robots in love (iPeople no less) or collecting plastic robot toys. Oh, don’t forget adopting a robot baby! Except, this isn’t like Haily Joel Osmand, we’re talking they adopt a small […]
