From the ARRR-chives: It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! - Avast, ye lilly-livered bilge rats! Sept. 19 be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. If nothing else, it will give you another excuse to annoy your coworkers and loved ones with expressions like “shiver me timbers!” and “poop deck.” The folk holiday began in 1995 after one of the two founders injured himself playing racquetball and shouted “Arrr!” in a particularly piratelike manner. Robert Newton, the actor who played Long John Silver i...

Review: Snowden – Citizenbore - When writer, director and national conspiracy master, Oliver Stone, takes on one of the biggest scandals of our time – the United States government’s global surveillance of everything – it should be like shooting fish in a barrel for the iconic filmmaker. Unfortunately, the resulting movie, Snowden, has that same cornered fish-shooting level of excitement. The 2014 documentary Citizenfour, the real-life film about Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency (NS...
Given the extensive coverage the man and this subject, Snowden is simply irrelevant and tiresome - but maybe that’s what the government wants us to think.

That time Star Wars went full Magnificent Seven - Star Wars #8 – January, 1978 (cover art by Gil Kane) The new Magnificent Seven film hits theaters this week, and it’s a remake of a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic, Seven Samurai. The concept of anti-heroes banding together to serve a greater purpose is well-worn (see everything from A Bug’s Life to Guardians of the Galaxy), but did you know that the very first Star Wars “Expanded Universe” storyline went full Magnificent Seven? It’s...

Review: Blair Witch – Recurring recovered footage film - In 1999, when the original film, The Blair Witch Project, came out, it was fresh, original and scared the poop out of unsuspecting moviegoers. Coupled with its ingenious marketing scheme, the film made a lot of gullible people believe its recovered footage gimmick was actually found footage from three inexplicably lost filmmakers. Fun times! Now, seventeen years later, the hit film that spawned the over-used recovered footage genre ha...
Nearly the same as the original Blair Witch Project; in fact if you were dropped in the middle of the movie it would be hard to tell which Witch is which.
