Hot Rod | In Case You Missed it...

Grilled Cheese Vs. A Taco
By

            I didn't really know what to expect when I began to watch 2007's Hot Rod, starring Andy Samberg and the always adorable Isla Fisher. A comedy about an amateur stuntman, his crew, starring a someone from SNL and produced by Will Ferrell really had all the potential in the world to hit a wall and go up in smoke. Within five minutes from the opening credit, I knew what to expect.

Watchmen: The End is Nigh | Video Game Review

Not Nigh Enough...

            Regardless of the graphic novel/film being set in the 1980's and the game being set in the 1970's, the one thing that will hit you in the face with a lead pipe from go, is that Watchmen: The End is Nigh (available now for The Playstation Network and on Xbox Live) is definitely not up to modern standards.

Acute Clownus Carrus Uterosis | Villain of the Week

Those who profit from Acute Clownus Carrus Uterosis and the dickhead's that encourage them...

            Ah yes, Clownus Carrus Uterosis, or treating your uterus and vagina like a clown car, is certainly a problem in this country. One that has come to the forefront and headlines with aplomb as of late, due largely in part due to the Octomom. Sure that name makes her sound like Otto Octavius' matriarch from Spider-Man, thus throwing her instantly into the pool of villainy, but she is only part of the part of the problem, and ultimately condemnable for her own actions, she is not the root of the problem.

The Wrestler | Film Review

Tied to The Tree of Woe
By

            I'm usually not a fan of the character exploration drama. Let's face it, all too often these films are about someone who could be just like you, rising or falling based on their actions, or lack there of. I feel like I've worn that hat a thousand times, and yeah, its old, not too mention I see people like me who will rise or fall based on their actions every day. I guess I'm just not a people person. Knowing all of this, I still dove off the top headfirst into The Wrestler. I gave it a shot, call it a high risk move if you will, but I'll always give Mickey Rourke, Darren Aronofsky and Marisa Tomei a chance, they don't really fuck up that often. Being huge wrestling fan to boot, it seemed like this could be the film that may sway me on this particular sub-genre. It didn't, but I'd blame that on being stuck in my ways. Besides, this is a film review, not a genre study, and the movie was excellent nonetheless.

Oscar Outrage!!: The Aftermath

Please Note: This is only the opinion of a lone nut living in the Wisconsin wilds. They in no way reflect the thinking of the Dorkgasm staff, editors, contributors, sponsors, or anyone else, humanity-wide. I am my own person, and as such am a big boy. I tell it how I see it, and I would expect your wussies to do the same. Beware the strong, fucking language So, here we go. Another Oscar night in the can, and nothing to show for it. Oh, sure. Heath Ledger got a posthumous Oscar for playing a comic book villian, but anyone who thinks the performance had anything to do with it is either sadly mistaken or stoned out of their fucking gourd.

Repo! The Genetic Opera | DVD Review

            Okay kids, lets get our imagination hats on. Alright, picture the 2000's version of Moulin Rouge as a woman, you got it? Cool, Now picture Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd as a man (not the characters themselves, but put a face on the film, oh and for the hell of it, give it a hot body) got that? Great! Now picture them fucking like mad, and Moulin Rouge forgets her pill, and becomes pregnant. Oh no! What do Rouge and Todd do? Its simply really, get an abortion. They both go their merry way as this abortion has torn them apart, but that is not the end of the story. No! The fetus somehow survived and was raised by Robocop (the original X rated cut). That half aborted bastard, would be 2008's Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Repo!: The Genetic Opera | DVD Review

A Second Opinion

            Now, I am fully aware that our erstwhile cub reporter J has already posted his review of Repo!: The Genetic Opera, but I will also chime in on this subject. See, I like J's review, and am happy that he had fun with it, even though I do think that the movie is much better than he gave it credit for. Let's look at this from the beginning...

Dear Michael Bay

Dear Mr. Bay

I would like to ask you to please handle your mining of my childhood with a little more tact in the future. The 1980's were good times for me, and I'd really prefer if you handle the Transformers, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th, with a little more finesse than your average carjacker.

Coming Soon!

Goodness, it has been a while, hasn't it? I know that I have not been as frequent with content as I would like to have been, but I will be attempting to remedy that soon. Let's see what will be coming soon!

Firstly, expect the LONG OVERDUE review of Naruto: Clash Of Ninja Revolution 2 I keep trying to write this, but everytime I sit down to write it, I find something new with the game or something I think I should cover better. It's coming, I swear it.

My Bloody Valentine 3-D | Film Review

I'm just going to go ahead and throw it out there, I'd already heard a lot of negative things about this movie before I even bought my ticket, and I dismissed them, thinking I knew better than those who had warned me. Before I got to the theater I heard that it was garbage, it was awful, worst movie ever, blah blah blah blah. Well my friends, I didn't expect to see The Godfather, I expected to shut my brain off, see some blood and guts, and their great horror movie brethren tits and ass, IN 3 FUCKING D!
