Ghetto Physics - the review

The pimp will beat you down, it's just a matter of how smooth the glove is. Or, as the movie itself says early on, "the world runs on Ghetto Physics." GhettoPhysics explores how power is wielded in the world through the examination of the interplay between Pimps and Hos.  From street corners to Wall Street, on a subtle and globally consequential level, we witness today’s modern pimps selling their vision of business while the women do all of the work. Through the use o...

GonzoGeek to Cover Austin Comic Con

Stephe and I have attended the Texas Wizard World Conventions every year since their inception. Those conventions have historically been held in Arlington, Texas. That was until last year when they cancelled the Con altogether.  This year, Wizard got back on the horse and moved the Con to Austin, Texas. We're going again, and, for the second time, we're going as media.  That's right, GonzoGeek will be there to cover it all for you. "We are pleased to return to Te...

Hatchet II Coming to Theaters Unrated

Next Friday, October 1, 2010, Hatchet II is hitting theaters and is doing so without the blessing of the MPAA.  Rather than edit their movie down to get an approved rating, the folks involved with Hatchet II chose to release the movie unrated.

This will probably limit the number of theaters where you can see the movie, but it will undoubtedly increase the demand to see what all the fuss is about.

Hatchett II is the sequel to 2007's Hatchet.  It picks up right where the original left off:

 Marybeth (Danielle Harris from HALLOWEEN) escapes from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder from FRIDAY THE 13th). Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact her revenge against Victor Crowley. 

Director Adam Green had this to say about the decision to release the movie unrated:

Having a movie as graphically over the top as HATCHET II come out in major theatres unrated is an absolute dream come true -- not only for the genre fans but for the entire make-up effects crew who normally have to watch their amazing achievements get sliced and diced for theatrical release. This is an important event for the horror genre and I hope the real horror fans support HATCHET II and help change the way genre films are released theatrically from this day forward. Kudos to Dark Sky Films and AMC theaters for truly honoring the spirit of old school American horror and doing this right. Gorehounds won't know what hit them!

Earlier this week, the Hatchet folks released a "So NSFW Clip," for the movie.  You can see it after the jump.

The Expendables - The Review

When I was in eighth grade a new kid moved in and was quickly assimilated into our wandering band of geeks.  The new guy came to Louisiana from New Jersey.  He brought The Destroyer with him.

I was intrigued by the covers of his paperbacks showing cars, guns, women, ninjas and guys doing martial arts.  None of those were things eighth grade me was doing. 

I wanted to check out the books, or, at least, books like them.  So the next time we were at the department store I made my way to the long aisle containing the paperbacks.  They were all there:  best sellers, romance, and, down at the end, the "men's fiction."

It was there that I met Mack Bolan.

"The Executioner" became my companion.  I think I must have carried around one of those paperbacks with me for the next 3 or 4 years.  In that time I learned a lot about guns, the Mob and international terrorism.

What does any of this have to do with The Expendables?

Simple.

It was these books that paved the way for my entry into that sub-genre of movies known as the 80s action-adventure movie.  Mack Bolan got me to John McClane.  He got me to Red Heat, Commando, Cobra, Lethal Weapon, Predator and Wanted:  Dead or Alive.

And, as I was watching The Expendables, I couldn't help but think of Phoenix Force

Coming Soon...LAKE PLACID 3

I know what you're thinking.  I thought the same thing.

Wait, there was a Lake Placid 2?

Yes, kids, there was an now the second sequel to the 1999 cult classic about giant crocodiles terrorizing a small lakeside town is coming to home video. 

The bad news?  No Betty White.

Scheduled for release on October 26, Lake Placid 3 promises "graphic violence and full frontal nudity."

On second thought, maybe its a good thing that Betty White isn't in this one.

For a look at what's in store for you, check out the red band trailer after the jump.  NSFW!

We're Looking Forward To...MONSTERS

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures... Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.

Immigration subtext anyone?

Boy, this sounds right up our alley doesn't it?

There's no mention of luchadores, but they could be in the movie...right?
