The Terminator is one of the most iconic characters in popular culture, but his track record is rather bumpy. He had a strong start in a debut movie that is a classic of science fiction. He followed it up with his defining moment in a movie that became a classic across all genres. After that, there were two more movies and a TV show which make the argument for The Terminator existing on a split timeline. … more
I opened my first-ever email account back in 2000 or 2001. Believe it or not, I still have the thing up and running. I get my Lunch updates there. It was a Yahoo! account, and the email address was email@example.com. Later, I opened two more Yahoo! accounts, one for fun and another for business. Come the next few months, I'll be closing down the two that remain open. … more

March 16, 2013
I just saw this movie for the first time since the mid-late 90's, and it still holds up well. The special effects still look good (considering these were computer effects from 1994), and the jokes are still a hoot (and some are even funnier now that I'm an adult). This is one of the wackiest comedies out there, and I whole-heartedly recommend it if you're a fan of Jim Carrey's prime … more
The Terminator has been one of those movies that I've been a fan of since the 90's, and it seems like with age, you end up loving it even more. With Arnold Schwarzenegger's movies, I consider this among his absolute best, second only to the mighty Total Recall. It's also interesting to note that if you ask around a lot of Terminator fans, most will tell you … more
*** out of **** John (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) are a pair of peculiar male specimens. They work as divorce mediators in Washington, D.C. pretty much year-round; that is, until what they call "wedding season" kicks in. It is then they spool through the local papers so that they may pick and choose which weddings they intend to "crash". And not "crash" in the sense … more
*** out of **** Adam McKay's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" is a full-time, full-force farce. A lot of comedies tend to at least try and achieve some sort of slight dramatic resonance, but this film has a whoopee cushion for a brain. Whenever the artificial sound of a fart is triggered, the film gets inspired. But that's just how it works. And it might have rendered … more

Ouch!!! 40% LOSS for investors in its first 10 days of trading on the NASDAQ! More if you bought at the height of around $45 on its listing day!!! I wrote a review of it (I know a bubble when I see one!) on the weekend after its listing looking for a price range of $25-28! It recorded a low of $26.83 yesterday (May 31) before a technical rebound at the close! … more
This review is about Facebook as a stock rather than a social media site. It's about business! Facebook had its IPO listed on Nasdaq last friday (May 18) making Mark Zuckerberg a $20 billion man! He rang in the bell for Nasdaq opening & his own wedding the next day (May 19). That makes Mark Zuckerberg not just the richest 28 year old on the planet but also the luckiest … more

It began trading on Nasdaq around $43 last friday. Today, in just a market day, over the weekend after Mark's wedding, it's trading at around $33!!! Lucky Mark who sold it at $38 with the help of Morgan Stanley! Not so lucky for the investors (retail or institutional) even if they are buying for the long term!!! They could have gotten it for $33 today or even less later! … more
The most impressive thing about The Love Guru is how much talent it managed to steal from The Daily Show. Samantha Bee, John Oliver, and Stephen Colbert all play small supporting roles in it. Good thing too, because Mike Myers was in dire need of help. He made a lot of exceptionally dumb mistakes in getting it onto the screen which a lot of other filmmakers really would have thought better of, up … more
RabidChihuahua reviewed Die Hard.
January 03, 2012
Even though Christmas is over, the title still stands, this is the ultimate movie for Christmastime, but it can be watched year-round for full enjoyment. Aside from being the ultimate Christmas movie, this is one of the absolute best action movies ever, certainly a fine reason why the 80's was THE decade for action movies. STORY It's Christmas Eve, and a New York … more

December 23, 2011
Simply put, this is an action-thriller masterpiece. This was more notable for the fact that compared to so many other action films, Die Hard had so much more tension, with the fact that John McClane (Bruce Willis) has to be really careful with his attacks against the terrorists, and that it's loaded with great action scenes and zingy dialogue. I will conclude … more
I enjoyed this movie a lot mainly because of the brothers fighting all the time, but the whole thing was good. I would not say that this is a classic but it is a good movie. I would say it is at least a rental but I recommend buying it, it is an entertaining film and I think you will like it. I feel like something is missing though and that is to bad because it holds this film back from being a classic … more
JUST FRIENDS We have all either been in his situation or have known some one who is totally in love with somebody but stuck in the friend zone. No matter which situation you have been in between those two choices every one can appreciate this film for what it is, a film about wanting to be more then friends. When this film was first released I wanted … more
I'm on Facebook and I hate myself for it. The only reason I joined was because invitations from friends to events kept flying over my head, and when they asked where I was, they would always tell me it was on Facebook. Herein is the big problem I have with the site: People consider it all they need. Basic human decency and intimate, detailed conversation is being eschewed. But on the upside, I've … more
There are times when the true, awe-inspiring stupidity and insipidness of mass media works never really strikes you until the thought hits: THIS. WAS. WRITTEN. By people who presumably have normally functioning human brains. Sometimes by more than one of those said people. For every work of art in which you are keen on finding out who the artist is in order to praise him, there are many others so … more
Is there anyone who is still not on Facebook by now? Yes! Many of my personal friends. Having said that, they are possibly the minority rather than the majority in the world now. So, I'll keep this short and simple. My take on Facebook. I had an account on it for many years but I hardly logged in. The main reason being I don't really know a great many who … more

I knew Meet the Spartans was going to be irredeemable during a scene in the very beginning, when the main character, Leonidas, kicks a Britney Spears parody into the Pit of Death. It would have been just fine, but it's allowed to go on for a bit to long, and it includes everything Spears became famous for during her breakdown a few years ago, just so we don't forget it's her. Obiously she gets kicked … more
