In Memoriam

J.D. Salinger, 1919-2010

I don't have much to say about J.D. Salinger, other than that I -- like everybody else in America -- read The Catcher in the Rye in some high school English class. I can't remember if I liked it or not, but I do remember that I finished it, which is more than I can say about most books I was required to read in some high school English class. Salinger will forever be immortal for having written one of the few books most high school students actually enjoy reading.

And now he's dead, which just means he's going to be that much more notorious for being a recluse.

In Defense of Avatar

Avatar is now the most successful movie of all time, so it's time for people to start taking cheap shots. Avatar was far from being my favorite movie, but I don't like cheap shots, and I hate badly written articles that make no sense on any logical level. So I was annoyed when I saw the following blurb on yahoo's front page:

'Avatar' record comes with asterisk

When box office returns are adjusted for inflation, James Cameron's epic isn't even close to the top.

I'm already suspicious about this article because I think the whole notion of "adjusting films for inflation" is fundamentally flawed to begin with, and just raises more questions than it answers. Adjusting grosses for inflation only takes into account the ticket prices and views that one, tiny detail as though it's in a vacuum. So, yeah, admission to Gone With the Wind may have only cost a dime while admission to Avatar costs about ten (or even more than that in IMAX) but so what? According to news stories like this one, that is somehow supposed to diminish the success of films like Avatar because it means less people saw this hit than did other films like Gone With the Wind and Star Wars.

Of course, that completely ignores other factors, such as how nobody was pirating movies back when those movies were out, there wasn't as much competition for viewers' attention, and not just from other films at the theater but from TV, DVDs, Videogames, the Internet, and whatever else kids are up to these days. Also, tickets for Avatar in IMAX 3D may have greatly contributed to its financial success, but that also means this film is so successful that people are willing to pay a premium fee to see it. I think that negates any supposed inflation in ticket prices.

But that's just my opinion on the matter. That isn't to diminish the success of films like Gone With the Wind, Star Wars, et all, but that people shouldn't be diminishing the success of this film either, simply because they are viewing it from the distorted lens of supposed "inflation."

End of rant.

If you've been reading my blog regularly over the course of the past couple weeks (and nobody has), you may have noticed that I've changed, tweaked, and played around with my layout a few times. But I think this is the one I'm going to stick with. I've been considering putting a little logo at the top, and I finally got around to making one I'm (more or less) happy with.

Any thoughts? On this layout or the others I've been toying with.

24 Day 8: 8:00pm - 9:00pm

I've been enjoying this season so far, but last night's episode -- while still marginally entertaining -- pretty much represented everything bad about this series. This episode kinda sucked.

To begin with absolutely nothing happened. This was one of those filler episodes, wedged in between one plot line ending (the assassination attempted on President Hassan) and the one that will start up next week (Renee and Jack's infiltration of the Russian mafia). Usually they fill the filler episodes up with some kind action set piece to distract from the fact that nothing is actually happening, but in this episode Jack spent the entire episode alone in a car doing nothing. Did Kiefer Sutherland have diarrhea that weak or something and requested a plotline where he just sat around for the full hour?

We knew that Renee was going to be successful in getting into the Russian Mafia, so we didn't need an entire episode devoted entirely to that one, inevitable plot point. What, we really thought the producers of 24 were going to bring back Renee for one episode, kill her off, and then have Jack go, "Well, I guess that plan didn't work!"? Of course not. So this episode was boring because it was a ten minute scene that was maxed out to a full episode's length.

And then we had the other major B plot of the night... that Hillbilly redneck and that blond chick. This plot line is this season's cougar. It's just so dumb, cliched, boring, and annoying. My prediction is they are planning on giving Elisha Cuthbert a major role next season, but they want to make her seem more likable to the fans by having another blond female character who looks even more weak, pathetic, sad, annoying, and downright unlikable. Which is a shame because Katee Sackhoff is actually an incredibly talented actress who deserves a lot better.

The premise of the plot is that Dana is a CTU operative... who may not be who she seems. This doesn't work for a few reasons, not the least of which is because she's too new of a character for us to care about.

"Forget everything you think you know about Dana!"

Um... we don't know anything about Dana. She's only been around for about four or five episodes. Why should we care about new revelations in her backstory when we don't even have enough info about her character at all? She have have been in jail and changed her name? Who cares? I couldn't even remember her actual character's name. I had to look it up. Her wedding with Freddie Prinze's character might be in jeopardy? Um... who cares? I don't know either of these characters enough to have any kind of investment in their supposed romance, other than that at this point, I think Prinze would be better off without her. So any dramatic tension there exists only because I want her to be exposed and sent off the show.

This plot could've worked had they made it about a mysterious man who appeared with new information about an already established character... say Chloe for instance. Had it turned out some guy was trying to blackmail her, I would've been on the edge of my seat. Chloe is a fan favorite character that we all know, love, and want to see happy. But Dana? Who the hell is Dana?

And, worst of all, is that this is all going on against the backdrop of a major operation that could effect the safety of the entire world. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to care about a character who wants to protect her wedding plans when all she should care about is keeping those terrorists from getting a nuclear bomb!

So, yeah, I'm ready for that plot to end, because it's just so poorly conceived and badly written. Maybe they can make her disappear from this show the same way Starbuck disappeared at the end of Battlestar Galactica. Zing!

Oh, and I can't take Hassan's brother seriously as a villain because he looks too much like Dimitri Martin.

The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy

I like the Star Wars prequels, but I don't love them. I watch and rewatch them all the time because they are ridiculously entertaining films full of excitement, action, and amazing visuals. But there are a few, fundamental problems that simply hold me back from heaping upon them the same pure, unconditional love I show for the original trilogy.

And, no, it isn't Jar Jar. I kind of like Jar Jar. He's cute and he makes me laugh.

And no, it isn't Hayden Christensen or Jake Lloyd's performances as Anakin Skywalker. I actually think both are ok actors who did as much as they could with what they were given. These movies would've been far worse with less talented, charismatic actors. Well, ok, Jake Lloyd is pretty obnoxious, but he still isn't what kills this movie for me.

And no, it isn't midiclorians, too much talk about trade negotiations, political dealings, or senate hearings. All of that was boring to be sure, but no more so than talk about wamp rats or Beggar's Canyon back home.

No, what kills these movies for me is the depiction of the Jedi as some weird, Buddhist like religion and Anakin's downfall being do to his inability to... not love the people who are close to him. These concepts kill the films for me on a fundamental level not only because they are stupid and make no sense, but because they are contrary to the ethics on which I attempt to base my own life.

Jedi really can't love? Jedi can't get married? Jedi can't have any attachments, property, or material goods? Come on. They took what used to be the coolest occupation of all and turned them into lifeless, sexless monks.

And we are really expected to believe that Anakin is corrupted to the darkside because he loves his mother and because he loves Padme? So love is bad? If it had just been because of his secret relationship with Padme -- including their secret marriage and her secret pregnancy -- maybe I could understand why that might be bad. But he shouldn't love his mother? He shouldn't miss his mother? Even though he left her as a kid to wallow and suffer alone as a slave on Tatooine? I'm not sure where George Lucas is from, but I've always thought that the people who don't love their mothers are the ones who turn out to be sociopathic followers of the darkside.

Basically what I'm saying this is: My ultimate goal in this life is still to become a Jedi, but when I do, I want to be able to bang chicks and love my mother without fear of turning evil. The prequels ruined that dream for me. But at least they have lots of cool space battles and lightsaber fights.

X-Files Season 2

The first season of the X-Files introduced the show as a fun albeit kind of goofy TV series. The second season is where things really started to come together as great science fiction. This season was awesome.

To begin with, the writing is just so much better. The first season was too comfortable with the same monster-of-the-week routine episode after episode. This season mixes it up by having cases that actually tend to follow this same formula, but somehow feel fresh and original due to their superior execution and varying story structures. In the first season, every episode would being with some crime being committed, and then we'd cut to a conversation between Mulder and Skully where he'd ask her something like:

"Skully, what do you know about vampirism?"

And she'd say something like:

"Well, I know that only mentally deranged individuals believe that they actually exist."

And then, of course, we'd learn that the monster that episode was a vampire. By the second season, the writers got a little more clever and actually managed to keep the mysteries going until later in the episode, often until right up til the final act. Also, they must've brought in some better story consults or something, because the actual detective work shown in these episodes is really well written. They do a good job of showing that Mulder isn't just a crockpot, but actually a detective with skills almost on par with Sherlock Holmes or Poirot. These aren't just good sci-fi stories, but well written mystery stories as well.

Another thing that helped to kick this up a notch and open up the mythology of the show is the strengthening of the supporting cast. Skinner and the Lone Gunmen were introduced briefly in the first season, but they were really let loose in this season. The Lone Gunmen were a brilliant way to add some comic interest to the show, as well as letting some other characters give some exposition instead of just giving that thankless job to Mulder. And Skinner is just awesome. Also, Mr X. (or whatever his name is) is just much cooler than Deep Throat. And he's not named after a porno.

Anyway, on to season 3.

Jean Simmons 1929-2010

No, not the guy from KISS. That's Gene Simmons. This is Jean Simmons, the lovely, radiant, and incredibly talented star of such classic films as Guys and Dolls, Spartacus, and Hamlet. But, of course, Blessed Are the Geeks loves her best for her role as Admiral Satie in the classic episode of Next Generation The Drumhead.

From Paris With Love

It's against my better judgment to admit this... but I am kind of excited to see this movie. On paper, this should be the worst film of all time, and I'm sure many of the people who saw this trailer think it's going to be exactly that. But I dunno. I think it looks fun. I'm excited for two reasons:

#1.) It's directed by the same guy who directed that Liam Neeson movie Taken, which was friggin' awesome.

#2.) John Travolta kicking ass. He's been in so many lame, stinkers over the years, he deserves to finally have some fun and relish in being a bad ass. I think he's earned it, and I want to watch him do it.

MacGruber Trailer

A MacGruber movie? Why not? I'll admit, the skits usually make me laugh, and so did this trailer. Then again, the skits are all about 30 seconds long. This movie is probably going to be about 90 minutes. Still... I laughed.

24 Season 8

Jack is back!

I skipped the previous season of 24 because it just didn't hook me and I couldn't find the time to tune in every week. Also, before the season premier they aired some TV movie that they hyped up for weeks... which I thought was the season premier. It was really cool and seemed like an awesome start to the season, but then it ended and they had promos for the start of the actual seventh season... which was starting in another two months or so. That really annoyed me. I was emotionally ready for the start of the season, and that little bait and switch left me unsatisfied and unfulfilled. And then when the season actually started, it was kind of boring.

I still haven't watched it, but that didn't stop me from watching the season premier of the 8th and latest season. Last year I couldn't always find the time to watch the episodes, and if you miss one, you're lost. But this is 2010 and the options for watching TV online at your leisure and convenience have gotten much better. I watched the first episode on and the second on Hulu runs better and is more reliable, but the Fox stream is in High Def.

So how is this season? It's 24. It takes place in New York, but you can only tell because they keep talking about how they're in New York. The UN is the only landmark they've really shown, and everything else looks like it could've been in L.A. Even the CTU headquarters looks more or less identical to the CTU they have in L.A. The cast seems pretty good, with some good performances already from newcomers Freddie Prinze Jr, Mykelti Williams, and Katie Sackhoff. I also like the guy who plays the president of whatever that fake Middle Eastern country is. He's a good actor and he seems like a great, honorable character. So he's going to die.

The story seems trite and cliched, but that's to be expected by this point. I hope things get a lot more interesting and creative than an assassination attempt to stop a peace treaty. Zzzzzzzzzzz. But whatever. This show is all about watching Jack Bauer beat the crap out of people, and they started that out strong by having him kill a guy with an axe to the chest in the first episode. That alone makes me want to watch the entire season.

New Spider-Man Film Trilogy

Sony confirms Marc Webb to direct the new 'Spider-Man'

I'm not sure how to feel about this news. On the one hand, I'm overjoyed because I'm one of the few people on the planet who hated Sam Raimi's trilogy of Spider-Man films. Sure, a lot of people hated the third film, but I thought they were all crap. As a huge Spider-Man fan, I've been annoyed and saddened by the fact that most people the world over consider the characters from these films to be the definitive portrayals of the characters. I'm happy to see that Sony is "rebooting" the franchise, since they can only get better, right?

But who is this Marc Webb guy? He's only directed one film so far, and it wasn't one that I had any interest in seeing. I'm guessing he got the job because his name is Webb, right?

So... we'll see. I'm cautiously optimistic, if only because it's sure to be a departure from Sam Raimi's awful interpretation of the character. But still... I wish the film rights had gone back to Marvel.

Mama Lucia Meatballs

I just can't get enough of this commercial:

Terminator Salvation

I skipped this movie in the theaters for a few reasons:

#1.) It got terrible reviews and horrible word of mouth.

#2.) Terminator 3 was awful and that TV show was even worse.

#3.) Prequels suck.

#4.) Christian Bale is one of the more overrated, annoying actors out there.

#5.) I'm cheap.

So I finally broke down and rented it because, well, despite all of the above, I always thought it looked kind of cool. And it was. This was a fun, exciting, well done movie. I liked it. But I can see how long-time fans of the series might think it was kind of a letdown. However I wouldn't really consider myself a fan of the series as a whole.

The first Terminator was a great film, and T2 was an absolute masterpiece -- the best action/sci-fi film of all time, in my opinion -- but, as I said above, part 3 sucked and the TV was just plain boring. The first film worked not only because it was a cool story, but because James Cameron is a fantastic director who hired some terrific actors. The sequel was even better because it continued the story in an intelligent, creative way, with the characters logically evolved and changed from their experiences in the first film. Then the third film was just a remake of terminator... and the TV show was more of the same. Neither had the heart, intelligence, or creativity of the first two films. They were just... terminators sent back in time to kill John Connor... again.


I've never understood why they keep trying to kill John Connor anyway? Because he's the only human being who can stop the machines in the future? Pfffft. I don't believe that anymore than I believe all of those alternate history novels about the Nazis winning the second World War because Truman or FDR died before they could take office. If an Army is only as strong as one man in the lead, that army isn't going to win, ever. And why do the terminators keep coming back in time later and later anyway? After they failed to kill off Sarah Connor in the first film, they should've jus gone back in time one day earlier and killed her then. Why keep coming back after the people are ready and prepared?

But whatever.

So at least this new fourth film had some novelty of being slightly different, in that there was no time travel, John Connor was finally an adult, and it took place in the future. Visually, conceptually, and tonally, this is entirely different from the previous films in the series, though there are plenty of homages and inside jokes. Like when John Connor tries to attract the terminator by playing You Could be Mine on a radio. Or how they had another chase scene between a truck and a motorcycle. Or, best of all, was when they digitally put Arnold's face on a T-800. That was strange and kind of unnecessary, but the special effects were flawless.

About the story I can't really say much since it didn't really make a whole lot of sense, was overly convoluted, and kind of poorly thought out, all things considered. It didn't really add much to the mythology of the series or even show us anything all that new. Then again, neither did Terminator 3. Basically, it just showed us the future we already knew about, and presented John Connor the adult as the ass-kicking solider we already assumed he was.

And that's fine, because the action set pieces were totally off the hook! Seriously, if you like action movies, this film was killer. Yeah, it had some problems with logic (like how did that giant robot sneak up on those people in the 7-11? Or why did they set up that elaborate trap to kill John Connor and then only have ONE terminator waiting for him? Why not have, like, a hundred waiting?), but it was all so exciting to watch because McG is just a great action director. This movie was awesome.

Acting wise, this was also pretty satisfying. Like I said, I'm not a Christian Bale fan, but he did pretty well here. His gruff, Batman growl was kept to a minimum, and he actually seemed like some kind of leader humanity would want to follow. Sam Worthington is an actor who has been in everything lately, though I had only seen him -- after which I had all but forgotten about him -- in Avatar. But he was actually pretty awesome in this, making it clear why he's being cast in every action movie currently in production. But best of all was Anton Yelchin as a young Kyle Reese. This kid is just a great actor and he does a killer Michael Biehn impression. He stole the movie in my opinion. Oh, and Bryce Dallas Howard is a beautiful woman, but she didn't really have much to do.

So, yeah. Terminator Salvation. Worth seeing if you like big, dumb, exciting action movies where giant robots fight humans. And who doesn't like that? But don't expect anything remotely resembling the creativity, intelligence, and craft of James Cameron's original films.

Pirate Latitudes

Over in my obituary for novelist Michael Crichton, I lamented the fact that I would never get to read another one of his novels. As it turns out, I spoke too soon. Just last November, his latest novel Pirate Latitudes was released posthumously, and sometime later this year we'll see the release another novel that is as of yet only described as "Untitled Michael Crichton Techno Thriller." I think they should just keep that as the title. Crichton is turning into the Tupac of the literary world, proving himself to be just as resilient to extinction as the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park.

Pirate Latitudes, as the story goes, was found by one of Crichton's assistants as a completed manuscript on his old computer. It's a strange little book, with more in common with one of his earlier historical novels than the multi-titled techno thrillers for which he is best known, and one wonders if he even would've published it had he not passed away at such a young age. It definitely reads like early Crichton, but that isn't a bad thing, since it definitely does read like Crichton. I'm usually suspicious of manuscripts that are "found" after some such writer's death, since they more often than not seem hastily finished and ghostwritten by lesser writers, but this one is most definitely written by Crichton. His is a clean, entertaining style that many writers would endeavor to emulate, but few would be the least bit successful. And, frankly, early Crichton is still my favorite Crichton, since he seemed more interested in entertaining readers than he did educating them on his increasingly questionable opinions and politics.

All of the above was my round about introduction to the following sentence: This is just about the most ridiculously entertaining novel I've read in years. From start to finish, it was an enthralling, exciting, entertaining adventure yarn that never let up on the suspense, melodrama, and sense of humor. As far as Crichton's novels go, the books story was surprisingly simple and straight forward, with a plot that involved one crew's attempt to capture another vessel and then make it home, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth reading and enjoying and loving. Every book doesn't have to be War and Peace. In fact, I'm glad that every book isn't War and Peace, though I kind of wish every book was Pirate Latitudes.

As far as literary value or subtext, I can't say there is all that much. I think Crichton just wanted to write a pirate novel, and the world is better for it. I guess there's some such attempt at dispelling the commonly held view of pirates as rebellious outlaws, but that many were actually commissioned by the various governments at the time, blurring the line between right and wrong, criminals and heroes. And while it is a pirate novel and not a techno thriller, Crichton's signature style or cramming in as much information as possible is well on display. Crichton obviously did a tremendous amount of research on the historical climate at the time, the geography of the Caribbean archipelago, and 17th century sailing in general. And, having done that research, by god he was going to use it all somehow.

The novel has already been optioned by Steven Spielberg for a screen adaptation, and it is easy to see why. The film is paced somewhat like a Hollywood blockbuster, with one action set piece leading up to the next. The characters are all memorable, if a bit cliched, creating a crew that the roots for, even while they do some truly terrible, piratey things. There is lots of gore here, with bodies breaking apart when hit by cannonballs, and brains splattering on people's faces after they get shot in the head. I would image Spielberg will cut down on some of that, so be sure you read the book first because it's awesome.

So go buy Pirate Latitudes. This novel is a booty call I think everybody will want to answer. Ha ha ha ha...

A-Team Trailer

Yeah, I also kind of thought it was still just a rumor... but I guess not. Check out the trailer here. I'm of mixed emotions at this point. On the one hand, it's an A-Team movie, and this trailer looks like a lot of ridiculous, over the top action that could be as fun as the original TV show. On the other hand, Liam Neeson is the only cast member that has me the least bit excited. Bradley Cooper is handsome, but he doesn't really have the charm o Dirk Benedict. That guy from District 9 thinks he can match Dwight Shutlz's definitive portrayal as Howling Mad Murdock? And who is that guy playing B.A.? I guess he looks ok. 


After ten years of waiting, James Cameron's follow up to Titanic finally came out at the end of last month. Just a few weeks later, it's already the second highest-grossing film of all time, right after Titanic. The Oscar-winning, self-proclaimed King of the World can now crown himself King of the Universe. But does he deserve it?

Sure. I guess. Why not? Even before the release of Avatar, James Cameron was one of my all-time favorite directors. Titanic is one of my most-watched, guilty pleasures, True Lies is the best action/comedy film of all time, the Abyss is a science fiction masterpiece, and T2 and Aliens are the two best sci-fi/action films of all time. And now he has Avatar, which was a pretty entertaining movie, as far as these things. I liked it. I imagine it's the kind of film that will grow on me after repeated viewings, but I don't know if I'll be able to verify that theory because, at the end of the day, I really have no interest in watching this movie again. But, you know, I liked it.

Visually, this film delivered on every promise it has been making for the past ten years. If the uncanny valley every actually existed, this film filled it up and paved it over. For all I know, this film was actually filmed on some other planet and featured actual aliens playing themselves. If you had told me there was no CG in this film and that all of the actors were wearing incredibly realistic suits, I would've believed you. The CG in this film was simply, without any doubt or fear of exaggeration, flawless. The planet was perfectly rendered and the characters seemed real and full of life.

I will admit that, as realistic as everything looked, I didn't actually love the visual design of the film. Everything was just too... psychedelic and trippy, like the dorm room of that one friend we all had in college who had too many black light posters and lava lamps. It was just garish and unattractive to my eyes, with far too many sparkly things falling here and there. Also, I had already seen it before in World of Warcraft. The Na'vi and Avatars look like Night Elves and the Planet Pandora looks like their starting location Teldrassil.

Whether or not the 3D added to the visual splendor or took away from it is a matter of opinion, but after sitting through three hours of this film in 3D, it's a gimmick I don't think I ever need to repeat. First of all, I wear glasses already, so having to wear a second pair of glasses in front of my other pair of glasses is incredibly uncomfortable and awkward. The glasses also made the picture dark and murky, which was a striking contrast from the vibrant, bright colors I saw when I'd peek out from under my glasses here and there. And let's be realistic here... this isn't really 3D in any literal sense. All this gimmick does is present different layers of 2D pictures. That is to say, in any given scene, there will be two or three different 2D images that seem either in front of behind the others. Given all that, it's hard to recommend paying more money just to suffer through something that can best be described as, "kind of neat."

About the story, there is very little to say other than that it was even more cliched, derivative, and boring than Titanic. Can somebody tell me what happened to the man who wrote such brilliantly creative films like Aliens and Terminator 2? It's hard to compliment a film's script when the story has already been told dozens of times already, and dozens of times better. You've already seen this film if you've seen Dances With Wolves, Little Big Man, or even Return of the Jedi. It follows the same tired cliche of the white man who becomes disillusioned with his own people so he joins the noble savage race that is about to be wiped out. It's a fine story to be sure -- even an important one, that should be told over and over again -- but at least tell it in such a way that allows for some kind of suspense or surprises or excitement. It was just boring.

And, please, stop making films where I have to root against human beings. I'm a human. Most others in the audience were humans too. This would've been less of an issue if there had been even one Na'Vi who was kind of a jerk. They are really all wonderful, charming, lovable creatures? Couldn't they have thrown in a few Na'Vi who were just dicks for the sake of being dicks? James Cameron certainly had no problem writing human characters who were dicks for the sake of being dicks.

So the movie was boring, until the climactic battle at the end, which was phenomenal. James Cameron may have lost his touch as a screenwriter, but he certainly still proved that his is the best action director of all time. The set pieces in this movie were all incredibly well done, but the final battle was amazing, and the fight between Jake Sully and Colonel Quaritch had me on the edge of my seat. That fight was awesome.

And that brings me to the best thing about this movie: Stephen Lang as Colonel Miles Quaritch. It's not exactly a name that rolls of the tongue, since I certainly can't pronounce it nor did I remember it until I looked it up just now on IMDB, but he was one of the most over-the-top, bad ass villains ever. Seriously, this guy was awesome. James Cameron started strong by creating the Terminator so early in his career, but he has been trying to top that villain in every movie since. He never will top the Terminator as the greatest movie villain of all time -- nor will anybody else -- but he came close with this guy. Every scene with Stephen Lang brought the film alive, even though he was also ridiculously cliched and completely unbelieveable, and as soon as he died (SPOILER!!), I lost all interest. James Cameron must've lost interest too, since about five minutes after the final fight, the movie ended. Which is good, because I was ready to take those damn glasses off and leave the theater.

So... that's Avatar. It was an ok movie that I don't recommend not watching. I certainly found myself entertaining for most of it, though never completely engrossed or moved or completely won over. But I'm glad I saw it, even if I still have a bit of a headache from the terrible 3D glasses.
