Decoding WALL-E

So, since I don’t really get out to the theater, my buddy pacer521 from Politics Decoded was nice enough to brave the masses and pay a week’s salary to catch a new release. Who is pacer521, you’re wondering? You’ll know soon enough, he’s popping up all over the Internet. Not to be deterred by sticky floors and little kids, he’s been gracious enough to give us his review of WALL-E.

This Is Going To Get Worse Before It Gets Better

So, I know I’ve been on a anti-remake jag lately, I’ll try to make this the last I talk about it for a while. I just couldn’t help it, once I saw that MTV is remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show. [...]

They Finally Get Something Right-ish

Even though this is a resurrection of a dead and buried property, I’m altogether relived that this ain’t no remake. I’ve always thought RoboCop was a brilliant movie. [...]

Kill Reverence and You’ve Killed the Hero in Man

Why a remake? Take Jason and call it Friday the 13th: something. Why reuse the same plot lines? We’ve already seen them. [...]

Time To Join The Party

By all accounts, Ledger’s performance is one of the best of his career. It makes be feel a little better when an artist can complete a career-defining work prior to their death, like Stanley Kubrick with Eyes Wide Shut or Warren Zevon and The Wind.
