I had the misfortune of watching another Hollywood movie last night after a week full of misery in which I had to combat other egregious Hollywood movies. I swore never to watch one again. I swore, cursed, kicked ass and even called names and yet I found myself slowly being seeped back into the cinema hall like a relapsing drug addict.

In Part One we discussed the relentless zigzag that was David Fincher’s career, a theory that led us to the unarguable conclusion that his remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo would suck a big one.
But did it?
Well, no. It certainly keeps the pattern alive though; this is not Fincher at his best. Lacking the probing intelligence that marks out the best of his work (Fight Club, Zodiac, The Social Network) this just feels like a very well made Hollywood movie (albeit an under-lit one...) I couldn’t quite place my finger on what the problem was; it was enjoyable enough but didn’t grasp me the way Fincher’s films can.
This is a hugely entertaining, humorous and exhaustingly-paced German thriller from writer/director Tom Tykwer, starring Franka Potente - of The Bourne film series fame.
The innovative visual style using several different filming techniques, the palpable sense of urgency, the pulsating techno score and an array of unique characters makes Run Lola Run an incredibly fun and exciting experience.

Avenging April keeps on Assembling here at All Geek To Me, we are close now, very close, and it is more than a little exciting. As a lead up to the big event on April 27th, I have decided to go back, dip into my Blu-ray collection, and watch all of Marvels Avenger based films, in sequence; in order to drive me into fits of excitement and refresh my memories of said films.
Una testa di cavallo mozzata. Citazioni, stereotipi. E la proverbiale mandibola di Marlon Brando ripresa anche da Tarantino. Baciamo le mani. Il Padrino. E tutti sanno di cosa stiamo parlando.
Part I. Si comincia dalla fine. I primi due capitoli de Il Padrino terminano con uccisioni a tempo di amen. L'omicidio viene nella pellicola letteralmente santificato come rito religioso.
Over the years a number of people turned up at the Brady house who just happened to be dead ringers for one (or more) of The Bradys. Some of them are obvious but some are a little more obscure.
- Arthur Owens who was Peter’s exact double, so much so he was able to fool the rest of the Bradys into believing he was Peter.
Make no mistake, I think that Sony's Uncharted trilogy is one of the best, most technically impressive games of this generation. In an age where (I personally think) games are showing less and less innovation, where companies are happy to churn out carbon copy games annually (Call of Duty anyone?), it takes a game with a decent, engaging story to keep me hooked.

Here's a summary of the different projects:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) --- The NAACP has sent a letter to a top Missouri education official questioning why the more than 3,500 students attending a network of soon-to-close St. Louis charter schools haven't been given the option of transferring to accredited school districts, as allowed under state law.

the Advancement of Colored People's St.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Six years later, Ben Curtis is a PGA Tour champion again.
His victory Sunday in the Texas Open didn't come easy. Neither did his words describing the redemption of nearly a decade spent falling from British Open champion to, this year, waiting by the phone simply for a chance to play.
His voice quivered, and his eyes welled up.

The search for Etan Patz, a 6-year-old New York boy who disappeared more than three decades ago, is expected to resume Monday after it was suspended for "operational reasons," an FBI spokesman said.
A law enforcement source briefed on the investigation said no evidence of human remains has been found so far in the basement of a building in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood where investigators are looking.
The Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other members of her party are delaying their parliamentary debut Monday as they seek to resolve a problem concerning the wording of the oath that lawmakers have to take.
Suu Kyi and 42 other candidates from her party, the National League for Democracy, won seats in by-elections on April 1, a result welcomed by countries like the United States and Britain as a sign of progress toward democracy in Myanmar after decades of repressive military rule.

Following last week's rumor that Apple is looking to adopt thinner in-cell touch technology for the display of the next-generation iPhone, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who recently took on a new position with KGI Securities, has issued a report looking at how that change could help Apple reduce the thickness of the iPhone from the current 9.3 mm of the iPhone 4S to under 8 mm.
Research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has in the past offered accurate information on Apple's Mac product roadmap, recently took on a new position with KGI Securities and has published a new report today indicating that Apple may be preparing to drop the 17-inch MacBook Pro from its lineup due to weak sales.
Kuo's prediction comes as Apple is expected to introduce new notebooks that serve as a hybrid between the current MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models, offering greater power than the Air but greater portability than the Pro.
