Gaming
One of the most beloved Christmas characters of all time is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on Nintendo Wii console.

Movies
Shirley MacLaine once said that it is impossible to do great comedy and be politically correct at the same time. In The Kids Are All Right, Director/Co-Writer Lisa Cholodenko manages to successfully walk that fine line between the two without crossing over to the latter side. While the film has a little fun with New Age philosophy, alpha partners, the guy who can't commit, and Mexican gardeners - it never offends. Julianne Moore (Jules) and Annette Bening (Nic) are a California couple that are settled in their lifestyle but dealing with typical mid-life problems. Bening's character is a successful professional who seems to delight in having it all together and providing the best for her family. Moore plays an enchanting, New Age spouting, identity-searching, stay at home mo...

Rose (Brooke Adams) is found alone and adrift on a small boat. She begins to recount what happened to her and her yacht mates, and through flashback, we follow along to see what happened. It appears forty years ago, at the end of WWII, the Nazis were creating a super soldier. The allies ran into this group, and it’s the only squad that the allies hadn't recorded a kill against. These super soldiers fought without guns with super human strength. This is all told in the opening narration, and it’s quite effective in setting the mood. It turns out, these soldiers are zombies, and they are currently lying dormant at the bottom of the sea. This is of course unbeknownst to our yachters, led by the captain, played by John Carradine. As you can imagine, the yacht ends up off course and being blind

Ramones Film Review: End of the Century

Entertainment, Movies
In the mid 1970s, a bunch of outcasts from the New York borough of Queens severely and irreverently altered the course of pop culture with their amateur, genius bubblegum rock 'n' roll. Calling themselves The Ramones, they helped to kick-start the very concept of punk rock, proving beyond question it's possible to play timeless, catchy songs without being instrumental virtuosos. Though they changed the way the world thinks about and creates music, The Ramones remained an underground phenomenon for their entire decades-long career. The Ramones as People, Not Stars Assuming some familiarity from their viewers with the story of The Ramones, filmmakers Michael Gramaglia and Jim Fields leave out dry facts, opting instead to dig into the juicier human side of things. They provide a ...

Fans of the book who are looking for a treat in watching a version filled with notable British comedians and dramatists will be sorely let down, when watching this mess of a project. If anything, it is has been widely reported that director Jonathan Miller refused to have any of the supporting characters in animal costumes, as it would be silly to have such actors don their respective character's outfits, thus lessening the cachet of his valued telecast. Alas, by doing so, Miller creates a real mess of a narrative for anyone unfamiliar with either the book or Disney's more popular animated classic from 1951. All the actors are dressed in Victorian attire, leading viewers to question exactly who they are and their relationship to Alice. Add to this the fact that in most scenes you...
