'The Karate Kid' comes kicking back
The Karate Kid just won the award for surprise of the year. It's good. No, like actually bona-fide good. While remakes of 80s films might be in vogue it's been tough going, but Karate Ki...
People seemed to like/hate my Prince of Persia review so I figured I'd start these up again for now. I got behind as I should also have a review for Get Him to the Greek, but I'll just say that it's definitely as funny as For...
You may go to a movie this weekend, and if you get there early you might see the "First Look." It's those ads before the movies that play. While not paying attention to the screen you may see someone you recognize on the sc...
Hi Destructoid Community (of which I count myself a proud member),
I'm thankful for you.
I'm thankful you read my posts on weekends.
I'm thankful you yell at me when you disagree with a post.
I'm thankful you agree with...
'Paranormal Activity' delivers the fear
The slow burn. It's a lost art in most film genres, let alone horror. Right now most horror consists of getting in, killing people quickly and shoving a few sudden appearances by the...
Remind you of anything? *cough*Left4Dead*cough*
'Zombieland' has it all
Zombieland has one flaw, and its so minuscule that it's almost not worth mentioning, but for any zombie movie lover it is important. See, it should re...
'Pandorum' brings space horror back
In the future, when interplanetary space travel is required because earth is about to be destroyed and we need to find a new planet, if the ships that are built are huge hulking things o...
'9' is not so fine
What an absolutely gorgeous and intriguing yet entirely underdeveloped and sadly shallow world the film 9 takes place in. It's like watching a painting come to life, and then realizing that the world of ...
Sorry guys, no Gamer review as my screening was canceled. Hopefully I'll get to see it over the weekend.
Judge extracts the plot, leaves the comedy
It's pretty clear that at some point in time Mike Judge was a comic geniu...
'Woodstock' wants it all, but misses
I was not alive to experience Woodstock, and since the hippie movement (or anything like it) doesn't seem to be coming back any time soon I seriously doubt I'll have the pleasure of eve...
(Ok, I lied. There's no Inglorious Basterds review. All of the press screenings were at times I couldn't make so you'll have to wait until Monday by which time you'll probably have already seen it. Until then though, enjoy me...
'District 9' brings humanity to aliens
There is one key thing the best science fiction films have in common, and that is that if you took out the aliens or lasers or spaceships or androids they'd still be compelling storie...
About Matthew Razak One of us since 2:04 PM on 04.03.2009
Monday reviews aren't on Monday. It's old school, trust me.
OK, so I've been and editor for a while now. I probably should fill this part in a bit more fully.
I've been here a while. In most all likelihood longer than you. I was here when the first cblog post went up, and before. I like to believe I rep Dtoid old school. I fell in love with this community the second the cblogs opened up and posted all that I could as Cowzilla3 (you may remember him as an angry banana). I fell off the radar a bit as I started working for other sites and my time got stretched, but I never left Dtoid and finally, one day, my dreams came true.
Now I'm the big cheese at Flixist (and sometimes a Dtoid contributor). If you didn't know me before as Cowzilla3, then "Hi! I'm Matt Razak. Despite all my rage, I'm going to break my rusty cage and run." I feel I should put the customary Dtoid rocks things here, but you already know that. I'd put my regular posts up below, but I don't have any (yet). Needless to say, I love Destructoid and everyone here.
Big group hug.
I'll see you on the weekends and we can celebrate Hammer Day together.
I also write movie reviews for a living. Sometimes I'll post them here. If you liked my review I would appreciate your kind clickage here. It would be most helpful in feeding the starving African orphans I take care of.
