James Cameron confirmed to waste 5 more years on "Avatar". You can sigh now.

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,   Bitter,Bitterometer,meter  

It's finally been confirmed that James Cameron will waste another 5 years on his, good but not great, "Avatar". We'd rather he finally makes "Battle Angel", which he says is ready to shoot at a moments notice. Instead he'll make sequels to a movie that doesn't need/merit one, NAY, two!

This will bring the total to, what, 15 years of working on "Avatar". Really? Last we checked it wasn't THAT good. A few years, sure, but 15 years is way too much time for a good director to waste on unwarranted sequels.

If we had our way it would have ended at the first one and he would move on to make better movies again, but lets face it... Us Balconites rarely get our way.

Bill and Ted becomes a trilogy!?!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,   Bitter,Bitterometer,meter  

Bill and Ted is getting a sequel. Apparently it's something Keanu Reeves has been chasing this project for 19 years. It makes one wonder. When he was working on "The Matrix", a cutting edge movie that would have a huge impact on the industry, he was dreaming of a time traveling elevator with one of the Lost Boys. Really? It's Bill and Ted! A movie that was cheesy at best. What is wrong with this picture?

What will be the subtitle for this one? "Bill and Ted's stupendous retirement"? "Bill and Ted's lack of careers"?

I don't understand what the story for this would be. They saved the world, fought death, or whatever, and are destined to become legends. Are they going to put their legendary world changing rock career in jeopardy? GASP!

Lookout: Cashback - You won't want it back because this one is a good one!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, Cashback 2006Sean EllisSean Ellis Cashback(2006)
 

There is something about an introspective film that reaches feelings we store in ourselves: regret, love, love lost. "Cashback" grazes over those feelings without disturbing them and lets us connect to the film’s protagonist all with one stroke. But the film isn't all drama and sadness. Romantic and comic moments help lighten the load and "Cashback" never ventures into the Overbearing Zone.

Sean Ellis originally wrote this as a short film and won an Academy Award for it to boot. When approached to make a new film, he decided he wanted to take a week to add to the short film’s script, so he could turn it into a feature-length film, using the footage from the short. This is a brilliant move because the time to complete the film was shortened considerably as was the
budget. He was also able to keep the great cast from the short film - and all make each scene worth watching.

The star of the show, Ben (Sean Biggerstaff) is an art-school student. When his girlfriend, played by Suzy (Michelle Ryan), dumps him he becomes an insomniac who can't overcome his

Dumb and Dumber: Jackass 3D review!!!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, Jackass 3D 2010Preston LacyJeff TremaineJohnny Knoxville, Steve-O Bitter,Bitterometer,meter Jackass 3D(2010)
 

3D has found a new low. "Jackass" alums Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius and Co. return for more self-inflicted genital punishment in this third installment of the “Jackass” franchise. Is it possible that something that was asinine to begin with could also become uninspired?

The guys have resorted to shit, puke and piss not as a challenge to our tolerance levels, but because they have nothing to offer anymore (did they ever?). This "Jackass," is nothing more than a banal attempt of thirty-something skaters and ex-junkies to jerk off their cash cow. After I threw $10 into a $50-million port-a-potty, the real Jackass is me: a willingly paying idiot who should have known better.
