A Post for those who Love Conspiracies

by Gunther Heinrich, 10 Apr 2010 in The Movie & Me

I knew it: They knew it and worked on it for decades. My spider paranoia sense was always tingling and it turns out my crazy paranoia was spot on all the time…

It seems that Hollywood is getting more desperate by the minute to find new stupid reboot ideas to ruin our daily nerves. In case you didn’t know Hollywood plans to reboot the reboot of Superman, wants to reboot Spiderman and reboots Fantastic Four, RoboCop and so many other franchises and wannabe’s.

I think we can all agree that this situation is slowly but surely getting out of hand. The best example truly is Superman which didn’t even scratch the surface of a true trilogy before a new reboot.

But this situation doesn’t have to go on forever. After some thinking I found a simple and straightforward yet ultimate solution to all this reboot madness coming from Hollwood:

The Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches

by Gunther Heinrich, 24 Feb 2010 in The Movie & Me

Aaaah. Help me, help me! The horror is too much! My brain!!!!

The good old movie cliche. It’s as old as the movie. Heck, they even produced cliches during the silent movie era before they knew what a cliche was. Of course, it hasn’t become any better since then. Movies rip off cliches from the classics and use them until the viewer’s brain takes a nap in the nearest bar. Or worse.

Do you want to want to feel the agony again? Here are the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches any director can come up with.

Movies and Realism? Are you kidding me?

Some days ago James added a comment to my review of Pixar’s Up. Well, normally I wouldn’t reply to a comment via a post but by a comment myself but I think that James raised an interesting point about which I never really wrote about: movies and realism. Basically James called my criticism of Up uncalled-for because Up is not meant for realism (or written realistic) but more about the feelings of the main characters.

Okay. I get his point but he also totally misses my point because…

Since when did I ever care about realism in a movie?

The end of the year is near and soon we have fewer years left until a meteor, alien invasion, malfunctioning earth core, solar eruption or George W. Bush completely destroys humanity in the year 2012.

But don’t think I’d let me (and you) off the hook so easily – until our fated doom I serve you blog posts with a smyle and a heart, even if it’s only list posts to review the past…

Therefore here are the best blog posts of madmind of this year in no particular order. Thank you for your support albeit how small it may be.

Let’s get started!
