HAULING ASS OR DRAGGING FOOT: A ZOMBIE DISCUSSION

Posted in Film, Guest Bloggers, Movies, Zombies with tags , , , , , , on May 10, 2010 by Kaiderman

I don’t know about you but, personally, there’s 2 things in life I love: My family and Zombies!!!

I happen to be completely obsessed with the genre. With both the good submissions and the bad. Today, I want to address a conversation that has arisen, and grown more heated, in the Zombie loving community over the last 6 years… ever since Zach Snyder’s awesome remake of the much loved cult classic Dawn of the Dead. The question is this: Which Zombie is better… the Romero creeper? Or the Snyder sprinter? To help me out, Marc from Go, See, Talk ( a great blog, by the way) has come on to help me debate the issue.

CINCO de KAI-YO

Posted in Film, Humor, Movies, Quickies, Videos with tags , , on May 5, 2010 by Kaiderman

That’s right, Ladies & Germans… it’s May 5th. Which means it is officially Cinco de KAI-yo. The day where the nation of Mexico celebrates the day I was born. Since it’s my birthday, I didn’t feel like slaving away over a post. However, I felt compelled to give you something.

I don’t typically spend a lot of time on youtube. The only videos I really watch on the internet are the kind you want to make sure are deleted from your history before your wife sits down to check her e-mail… just kidding, Honey [nervous laugh]. Where was I? OH! Sure I use it to get clips for the site, enjoy the occasional early 90’s gangster rap video and watch a cute kitten do something cute… who doesn’t? However, a friend sent me clip the other day so funny I had to share it with you.

So, where ever you are, pour your favorite drink in a glass, throw it back, watch this video and enjoy my holiday!

That’s it for now, Compadres.

It is once again time for us here at THE LIST to perform our public service. Not because we want to… because it’s court ordered. Damn my need to streak when I’m drunk. And double damn my need to drink on a daily basis. But I digress…

To perform this much needed service, I have once again called in some heavy hitters to help me. Here’s who we have on tap:

Andy from Fandango Groovers Movie Blogthe hardest working blogger on the net.

Heather from Movie Mobstersan OFG: Original Female Gangster.

Terri from Goregirl’s Dungeonmy one stop shop for all things horror.

Darren from the m0vie blogmy fellow Fanboy!

And, of course, ME… your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman.

Here’s the idea behind this post: Continue reading

DIRECTORS THAT GET MY DOLLARS

Posted in Animation, Directors, Film, Movies with tags , , , , , , on April 24, 2010 by Kaiderman

I’ll tell you right off the bat, Marty didn’t make THE LIST!!!

Let’s face it, Ladies and Germs, going to the theaters these days is getting more and more difficult. Ticket prices are getting so high, especially with all the IMAX and 3-D screenings (3-D tix in New York have risen to over $20 per), that for some movies I have to decide what I’d rather do… See a film or pay my electricity bill. A recent screening of Up, in 2-D mind you, with a moderate amount of snacks for my wife, kids and myself cost us about a hundred bucks. Even if my wife and I want to go alone, to see something with more mature content, we pay for a sitter and end up eating the cash either way.

This is part of the reason that I don’t do reviews on this site… well, that and the fact that I’m just such a film fan that I have a hard time disliking even poor films. So, I have resigned myself to seeing most films, in fact almost all films, when they come out on DVD. From time to time, a CG driven explosion fest, an interesting or critically acclaimed indie or a new vehicle for an actor I admire will get my butt in the seats. However, most of the time I don’t waste the time because I don’t really expect much from the films.

However, there are a few Filmmakers out there (under 10 probably) whose catalogue of work is so impressive that I know I can count on them to leave me feeling satisfied after shelling out a healthy lump of coin to see their films. For that, I thought they should be honored here, on what some are calling the greatest blog ever written (and by “some” I mean “ME”), with this week’s list: DIRECTORS WHO GET MY DOLLARS.

Here they are (in order): Continue reading

FIREFLY REMEMBERED

Posted in Celebrities, Film, Movies, TV with tags , , , on April 21, 2010 by Kaiderman

So, last week when we did our DESERT ISLAND DVD extravaganza, I couldn’t help but feel all the love out there for Firefly, Serenity and, in particular, Nathan Fillion. As many of you know, I’m a big Nathan Fillion fan. I’ve loved him since 2 Guys, A Girl & A Pizza Place. Still, I can’t drag myself to watch everything he does… my apologies to White noise 2 and, his new venture, Castle. However, I did stumble across this clip from Castle’s Halloween episode where the writers and Mr. Fillion did a wonderful shot out to the short lived but much loved, Sci-Fi classic, Firefly. I thought it bared sharing. Here ya go:

FAVORITE STAR WARS CHARACTERS

Posted in Film, Movies, Star Wars with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2010 by Kaiderman

I just realized we’ve been up and running for about 4 months now and have failed to dedicate a single post to Star Wars. A travesty which I intend to rectify today.

You see, I’ve been a Star Wars fan my entire life. The first movie I ever went to, though I was in my mother’s belly at the time, was Star Wars. As a kid, I had almost every action figure, ship and playset Kenner ever made. A collection I set out to restore in my 20’s. Here’s a glimpse at the current toy room:

Between that and the movie obsession, I’m as shocked as you that the Editor-in-Chief said yes when I got down on one knee… believe me!

But I digress, so, I thought it would be interesting to thumb through the old collection and dive into the seemingly endless world of characters George Lucas has created over the years and pick my favorites. I’ll admit, like most my lists, time and circumstance can change my opinions. However, right now, these are my Top 10 FAVORITE STAR WARS CHARACTERS.

Here we go (in order): Continue reading

DESERT ISLAND DVD’S

Posted in Desert Island DVD's, Film, Humor, Movies with tags , , , , , , , on April 11, 2010 by Kaiderman

So, good ol’ Andy, at the Fandango Groovers Movie Blog site, has got  a bunch of us bloggers from around the world, and the blog-o-sphere, to put up a post featuring what DVD’s we would take with us if we got stranded on a desert island (Limit 8). Don’t overthink it and ask how we would play these DVD’s… my guess is I would use my above average intelligence to fashion something out of coconuts, bamboo and vines… just go with it!

To see some of the other bloggers contributing to this topic, click the pic of Wilson below:

But first, let’s get to mine! Continue reading
