Editorial Review

The director/producer team that created Trainspotting turn their dynamic cinematic imaginations to the classic science fiction scenario of the last people on Earth. Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up from a coma to find London deserted--until he runs into a mob of crazed plague victims. He gradually finds other still-human survivors (including Naomie Harris), with whom he heads off across the abandoned countryside to find the source of a radio broadcast that promises salvation. 28 Days Later is basically an updated version of The Omega Man and other post-apocalyptic visions; but while the movie may lack originality, it makes up for it in vivid details and creepy paranoid atmosphere. 28 Days Later's portrait of how people behave in extreme circumstances--written by novelist Alex Garland (The Beach)--will haunt you afterward. Also featuring Brendan Gleeson (The General, Gangs of New York) and Christopher Eccleston (Shallow Grave, The Others). --Bret Fetzer ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This movie had zombies?
There were zombies in this flick? All I remember is the sheer beauty of this film. Seriously, the one thing that was horribly overlooked was the beauty of it all. You don't need to analyze every frame to find this either.

There are many instances within the film where it is clearly evident. The Monet-like imagery of the flowers after the grocery store run, the camera angles and music while they are on the deserted highway, the plane viewed through the trees, a red dress that gained its own theme song only to swoosh across the screen for a few seconds, and the final scene where HELL is spelled upside-down out on a green hillside only be read as HELLO later.

All of these, and more, captivated my attention throughout the horror of the movie's entirety. These images were produces so well I bought the movie just to see them over, and over, and over again.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good First Half
The zombies are fast.

It's true that in Danny Boyle's 2002 film 28 Day's Later the crazed, flesh eating villains aren't technically zombies.In fact, Boyle has gone to great lengths to qualify them as humans infected with a virus known as RAGE.Yet, to this reviewer at least, the differences seem moot.In traditional zombie pictures, and in this film the creatures are mindless, they carry a real zeal for human flesh, they have a predilection for turning everyone else into their like, and they are fairly easy to kill.Whether the creatures are the living dead so to speak, or infected by an incurable virus doesn't make much of a difference.Though the zombies here, seem updated from their filmatic ancestors.

These zombies are fast.

Traditional zombies are a slow moving lot.Having been rotting in their own graves for untold years, their reanimated flesh is a little atrophied, causing them to move at a slow, sluggish pace.This has always been a helpful plot point for the heroes in zombie films, for they are easy to run away from.In fact, the means by which zombies generally kill their victims is through sheer numbers.Boyle has circumvented this convenience by allowing his monsters to run at normal human speeds.It is an excellent update to the genre, giving the ability for more scares.

Man, I dug the first half of this movie.Well, except for the very, very beginning.The opening scene gives us the origin of RAGE, with a bunch of Clockwork Orange inspired monkeys.I've never really dug origin scenes in zombie flicks.I think it's much scarier to just have the zombies running around eating brains, without any reason for their existence.Origins, generally, just seem dumb.And here, with the infected monkeys being freed by some Green Peace types doesn't really inspire any other feelings.Though, I suspect it was another move to plant this film outside the zombie track.

But after the dumb origins scene things get really good.We've got a naked guy named Jim (Cillian Murphy) hooked up to various tubes in a hospital bed.I always like it when there is a bit of male nudity in a flick, since there is always so much of the female variety.Anyways, Jim gets out of bed and wanders the streets of London.There are plenty of shots of Jim (fully clothed now) walking by big famous London monuments without another soul around.It seems London has been vacated.It is creepy and effective.

In a bit, Jim clamors into a church figuring to find some sanctuary, or at least have a few questions answered.What he finds is a bunch of dead folks piled up.In a good holy crap moment, Jim says, "Hello" to find a couple of the dead guys not so dead and jumping up.From there until the second half of the film, it is a constant run from the zombies.

The zombies really work in this film.They are fast, furious, and vicious.Jim eventually teams up with some other survivors and they set about trying to figure out what to do.Boyle really does a great job of adding tension to the film and keeping the scares up.

Then the film changes.

The group is rescued by a gang of all male military types, living in a compound.Turns out the military types are a bunch of psychos and the film turns from being a zombie flick into being a stranded-in-a-compound-with-a-bunch-of-psycho-military-types kind of film.To make sure we know this is no longer a zombie flick, a big group of zombies launches an attack on the compound only to be massacred with machine guns and land mines.

This half of the film, I don't dig nearly as much.Zombie flicks always have trouble filling out their whole hour and a half time slot.Even with a good introduction of characters, and a slow build to zombie free-for-all there is still plenty of filler time.Here, the filmmakers seem to have decided that they might as well dump the zombies and give us some other tension filled concoction.But, there isn't really enough time to develop the military end of the story and it feels wrong.

It's too bad too, because that first half was really promising.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT EOW (End of World) movie!
I loved this movie.I am a huge EOW movie and book fan and have seen or read most of them.This one ranks at the top.It's based in England and makes the dudes from the "night of the living dead" movies look like circus clowns.This movie is hauntingly scary, well written, are realistic in terms of EOW scenario.You'll be on the edge of your seat as survivors are chased from safety by victims of "the rage".The desolate human-less landscape and brooding soundtrack add to the great mood this EOW movie portrays!

Animal rights activists free a group of infected chimpanzees to horrifying results in this speculative sci-fi horror effort from Trainspotting director Danny Boyle. Waking from a coma in a deserted London hospital 28 days later, bicycle courier Jim (Cillian Murphy) takes to the deserted city streets in a state of mystified confusion. Joining forces with another group of survivors following a terrifying encounter in a seemingly abandoned church, Jim soon learns the truth behind the deserted streets and the menacing creatures that lurk in the shadows. It's soon revealed that the chimpanzees had been harboring a deadly virus that sends its victims into a furious, murderous rage, and in the days following the initial exposure, the entire population was nearly wiped out due to the resulting homicidal rampage. Is there still a glimmer of hope for humanity - or has the deadly "rage" virus found its way to foreign shores and infected the entire planet? ... Read more

Editorial Review

There's Something About Mary is one of the funniest movies in years, recalling the days of the Zucker-Abraham-Zucker movies, in which (often tasteless) gags were piled on at a fierce rate. The difference is that cowriters and codirectors Bobby and Peter Farrelly have also crafted a credible story line and even tossed in some genuine emotional content. The Farrelly brothers' first two movies, Dumb and Dumber and Kingpin, had some moments of uproarious raunch, but were uneven. With Mary, they've created a consistently hilarious romantic comedy, made all the funnier by the fact that you know that they know that some of their gags go way over the line.

Cameron Diaz stars as Mary, every guy's ideal. Ben Stiller plays a high-school suitor still hung up on Mary years later; the obstacles standing between him and her include a number of psychotic suitors, a miserable little pooch, and, oh yeah, a murder charge. The Farrellys' admittedly simplistic camera work, which adapts easily to a TV screen, and the fact that you'll likely laugh yourself so silly over certain scenes you'll want to replay them to see what you were missing while you were busy convulsing, make this a perfect video movie. --David Kronke ...

5-0 out of 5 stars There's Something About Mary You Just Can't Describe!
There's Something About Mary is a hilliarous dim-witted comedy great for the teens and guys in your life! One of my favorite movies of all time but, not one I would share with the kiddies on family movie.

In this movie you a young boys infatuation with the one who got away in high school-- the new girl Mary(Diaz) who is the girl in high school that just has it all sensitivity, looks, and charisma. She actually goes to prom with Ted(Stiller) who has the geeky hair and braces. Only problem is prom never happens after Stiller has a problem in the bathroom when he accidently hits the "frank" when zipping up his fly. Many years later still consumed with Mary-- Ted decides to her down hiring a dective who also falls for Mary. The dective makes up a story about Mary to Ted about her being 200 pounds and in a wheel-chair to turn Ted off while he moves to go be close to Mary. Mary hasn't changed at all and when Ted learns about where Mary is he decides to see her. Things haven't changed and their still is a connection with her. Then, the world comes crashing in when Ted learns that is not the only one who sees there is something about Mary-- her admirers include someone obssesed with shoes, a pro-football player, a class a- jerk, a pizza guy, and Ted who never got over Mary. All in all this a hilliarou comedy! One to have in your collection!

All admit the storyline is a little too dim-witted at times jumping around from a axe-murderer hitchhiker, to a trip to the emergancy room on prom night, to a dog set on fire-- to the guy that loves Mary's shoes. I've watchedthis movie over a 100 times and I still laugh everytime I see it-- I guess there is Something About Mary you just can't describe. Rent or buy this one and laugh yourself silly!

5-0 out of 5 stars Step into my office.What?Your f_cking fired!!!!
A man gets a chance to meet up with his dream girl from high school, even though his date with her back then was a complete disaster, which is perhaps the funniest sequence ever placed in a movie."Franks and beans.""He was masturbating."

"How did you get the beans above the franks?It wasn't exactly a well thought out plan."

This is seriously one of the funniest movies ever created."There's something about Mary" is probably tied with "Dumb and Dumber" as the best movies the Farrelly brother every created.Me, Myself, and Irene was also fantastic, and a very close third, while King Pin was also very good.They also made Osmosis Jones, Shallow Hal, and Stuck on You.

I can't really say enough good things about this movie.It really launched the career of Ben Stiller, who usually had bit parts in movies at the time. Something about Mary propelled Stiller to the Meet the Parents role.Stiller is now a box office draw off the power of his name alone.He can thank the Farrelly brother for bringing him to the worlds attention with this great character.

The cast of this movie was magic.You need to give Farrelly brothers a lot of credit for their utilization of Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon, and Chris Elliott.All three played major roles in the movie, however, none of them stole any light from Stiller's character, and were utilized to perfection.

There's something about Mary is a must have in your DVD collection, no questions asked.If you haven't seen it, shame on you, and just buy it, do not waste your time renting it.I seriously believe "There's something about Mary" is one of the greatest comedies of all time along the lines with Coming to America, Animal House, and Dumb and Dumber.

Grade: A

5-0 out of 5 stars There's something about the '90s, huh?
I was about 13 or 14 when my family and I checked this flick out at the theater (I have hip folks, what can I say!). Zippers, hair-gel, Ben Stiller, and that crazy bro. Mary had - it's the late '90s, so put on your zoot suit, and pull a comb through your coal-black hair!

Much of "Something About Mary's" humor is about "sticky" situations, and I mean this literally and figuratively. . . It's crude (what other movie ends with the dialogue, "I was only bonin' you to get to Mary?"), you bet - but it also has a charming good-naturedness about it that later, more cynical exercises in gross-out comedy (i.e. the "American Pie" trilogy) would lack. In fact, remember that guy from high school who was always trying way too hard to be the class clown? "American Pie," and especially its sequels, are like that guy. His freshness wore out quickly, and he eventually became a self-conscious parody of himself.

The plot of "Mary" essentially revolves around a group of love-hungry boobs who desperately want to hook up with Mary. Stiller was her high-school prom-date; Chris Elliot was her college boyfriend, etc. Each guy tries to sabotage the other guys, and Mary is stuck in the middle of their kooky antics. Simple? Yes - but "Mary's" not supposed to be a weighty Oscar juggernaut steeped in critic-baiting societal metaphors - it's supposed to be fun. And trust me, it totally succeeds, here.

So, why should you check out "There's Something About Mary" now, instead of the more recent "Pie" movies, and such? "Mary" goes down like a bubbly can of sparkling Cherry Coke (or Surge, if you remember that! Damn, that was good stuff!), complete with a nostalgic buzz. Think blue skies, and an optimistic, pre-Bush America. "Pie," and recent movies like it, go down like hard swallows from a plastic bottle of some over-syruppy, hyper-commericalized energy drink. Think smart-allecky smirks, and greasy foreheads. Which would you prefer?

So, check "Mary" out - She was hot then, and she's still hot today. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Why learn new tricks when you can still get big laughs milking the old ones? Everyone's favorite foul-mouthed canine puppet simply takes the same material he's been using since Don Rickles was in short pants, and stretches it over a series of musical pastiches, from calypso ("Underage Bichon") to, um, Yiddish musical theater ("My Mama"). With contributions from Adam Sandler, Conan O'Brien, Jack Black, and SNL vets Maya Rudolph and Horatio Sanz, this disc features more guests than a Jerry Lewis telethon (alas, no Eminem--though he gets name-checked on the hip-hop jam "I Keed"). The Jerky Boys-style crank calls quickly wear thin, and the bonus DVD is a hodgepodge of static performance footage of the best bits on the CD, plus some agonizing filler (who invited that Dell computer dork?), but on the strength of the hilarious songs alone, Come Poop With Me is nothing to turn your nose up at. --Kurt B.

4-0 out of 5 stars You'll like the CD but the DVD is great...FOR ME TO POOP ON!
To be honest, I am quite biased because I think Triumph is hilarious.The songs are really good but the actual bonus DVD is just that a Bonus.He drags out Jared Fogle and the Dell guy ripping into them while they stand there and take it, I guess they're good at that.He performs the songs, from the CD, and but also includes different material.Guest stars appear on this as well, look for Vincent Pastore, Conan O'Brien and Adam Sandler (although he's barely on it).Do yourself a favor and pick this up, it's worth the money.If someone watches and/or lsitens to this with you and doesn't like it POOP ON THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars its just not funny... unless you are 8-10 years old
save your money. go to ebaumsworld, go to the arnold swarzeneggar soundboard, call up your nearest panty store and you will laugh your ass off. buy this cd and you are dissapointed the whole way through. you want to laugh, and keep waiting for the funny stuff to come up but it never does! so eventually you are the one getting pooped on, and you lost your time and money.

5-0 out of 5 stars I hope the dog wins!
Triumph, you are the king of poop! When Conan announced you were nominated for the Grammy I had to get this cd. How did you get Conan to do that duet? He must have lost his entire cat audience after this came out! It is one of the funniest songs I have ever heard, so it was worth it. Thanks T-Dog. Now I can laugh as hard in my car as I do watching you on TV! ... Read more

The Fairly Odd Parents is an animated Nickelodeon series about a boy named Timmy and his Fairy Godparents Cosmo and Wanda--a series that Nickelodeon anticipates will someday equal the enormous popularity of SpongeBob SquarePants.

I can't believe everyone likes this show, it is the most annoying show with pointless stories that are filled with stupidity. I'd go and watch SpongeBob, he's a cool sponge that's hilarious.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Amused Teen
Ever since "Fairly Oddparents" came out on Nickelodeon, it has been one of the most amusing cartoons for me to watch. Lately, Nickelodeon has shown this movie and it held my attention for the couple of hours that it was on. A cartoon must be funny if a teenager would willingly watch it. I recommend it for times of boredom.
