Separate
So I've separated this personal thing and my reviews weblog out, after upgrading to typepad pro, which includes unlimited weblogs and photo albums. So, there's this one, the Reviews one, and Mrs. Hungus has one too. I don't have any...

eMachines C2825
Rating: So last week was pretty hellish in terms of things breaking around the house. First, the washing machine broke, then my caulking gun, then my PC's power supply (which evidently also took my motherboard/CPUs with it), and then my...

Ender's Game
Rating: I borrowed Ender's Game from the library after reading and rather enjoying Robota earlier this month. I'm glad I did, because it was one of the more enjoyable books I've read in a while. The book was first published...

Laurel Canyon
Rating: Laurel Canyon is basically about a young-ish couple who are rather boring academic types who move in with the guy's rather free-spirited record-producer mother. Obviously, hilarity ensues. This movie would have been very boring, I think, if it weren't...

Secretary
Rating: The best word I can think of to describe Secretary is "weird". I suppose you could call it a romantic comedy, if you had the kind of sense of humor necessary to appreciate this movie. Romantic black comedy is...

Site move
I've moved the site to the TypePad service. It seems pretty slick so far, but feel free to e-mail me if there are any issues (aside from old archive links not working anymore...I'm aware of that). ...

Robota
Rating: And now for the inaugural book review on this site. I first heard of Robota from Apple's trailers site. As you can see from this entry about a year ago, I thought it was going to be some sort...

Withnail and I
Rating: Seeing Withnail and I for the first time recently (it was originally released in 1987), I can't quite believe that I'd never really heard anything about it before. I'd heard of writer/director Bruce Robinson, pretty much just because of...

School of Rock
Rating: School of Rock is extremely funny. That's all. That's really quite refreshing, as you don't often see movies that are just plain comedies that don't suck. You usually get Yet Another Teen Scream crap. Jack Black is right at...

Drumline
Rating: So I wanted to see Drumline basically because I was a big band geek back in high school, and I've always enjoyed the show-style bands. One high school that I attended in Florida was in a district where a...

The Shins: Chutes Too Narrow
Rating: I first heard of The Shins on MTV2's "Subterranean" (otherwise known as the only time to catch indie-type videos on TV). "So Says I" is a very catchy single, and the video features CGI penguins, so naturally I was...

Slap Shot
Rating: Slap Shot is one of those movies that I'd probably been hearing about for 10 years, but never got around to seeing it (another example of that category would be the Evil Dead series). Like Evil Dead, I'm glad...

Showgirls
Real rating: Entertainment value: What can you say about Showgirls that hasn't already been said? It is seriously one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Fortunately, it's mostly bad in ways that turn out funny, so it's kind of...

Apple Airport Extreme
Rating: I purchased an Apple Airport Extreme base station about two weeks ago. There are far cheaper wireless options available out there, but I decided on the Airport because it has an integrated modem, and because I am an Apple...

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Rating: I rented The Texas Chain Saw Massacre pretty much based solely on its "classic" status. I don't usually like this sort of slasher flick, but this one was pretty good, and I can see why it's highly regarded. I...
