Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Netflix Picks of the Week (11-22-2010)

Posted on Monday, November 22 @ 17:35:56 Eastern by Blake_Morse

Daniel: The Majestic - I'd never seen this movie until this past weekend, and after watching it, I had to ask myself why? I had no clue what the film was about before watching it, but now that I've seen it, I think it's one of the better 50s period pieces you could possibly watch. It doesn't play on campiness like Pleasantville does, it has an interesting, complex plot, and it's entertaining throughout. Should I be watching more dramatic Jim Carrey movies? Am I wrong to assume Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls is his best work?






Josh: Avatar: The Last Airbender: Season One - I was hesitant to watch this show at first (shitty M. Knight Shyamalan movie or not) based on the fact that it looks like one of those American pseudo-animes, which I usually can't stand. But it turned out to be as good as everyone said it was. I didn't get really into it until season two, when the plot and character development ramp up a bit more. I would have loved it if the show were a little bit more mature and depicted the violence of war more realistically, but if you don't mind a little bit of kiddiness in your action cartoons this is a great one to watch.






Nick: The Good, the Bad, the Weird - In what can only be roughly described as a "Kung Fu Hustle"-styled parody of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly", this action flick is the perfectly serious but funny homage to the Clint Eastwood classic. A bounty hunter, a gangster, and a train robber all get caught in the pursuit of a Manchurian treasure map, and must cross the barren landscape (and each other) to find it. Some scenes that try to show off the bad guy as THE BAD GUY are a bit over-the-top, but that's all in the spirit of frivolous danger. Well-directed, well-scripted, action-packed, and cheeky to boot - there's not much more to want out of a movie.





Blake: Superman: The Movie - I had a couple girls over the other night who insisted that we watch this for some inexplicable reason (I have no clue, maybe it's related to their womanly cycles). I hadn't seen it since I was a very young, much tinier Blake and after watching it again as an adult I am left scratching my head and wondering what mini-Blake saw in this film that he thought was so goddamned awesome. Maybe it was a byproduct of being born in the 80's and not knowing any better. Maybe it's because most kids think Superman is cool. I have no clue. All I know is, I suddenly have less respect for Gene Hackman as an actor.  Consider this my first anti-recomendation.
