Top Ten Films of 2008
Michael C. Riedlinger

            What a crazy year for film, you know? We saw dead careers come back to life with a roar, great actors die before their time, and the living dead were practically impotent when they finally showed up at the end of the year. 2008 is the year that the writers went on strike and genre films changed tact and proved that it was those very writers who could turn a bit of clichéd fare into potential award winning blockbusters. Oh wait, I forgot that my compatriots in the world of film criticism tend to look down their noses at mainstream fare. While I agree that 2008 saw its fair share of crap, there were plenty of main-stream gems to get excited about.

Death... Not Only Walks, But Is Off And Running
Kenneth Holm
Senior Staff Writer

            As you may have noticed, this is my first article is about two months. After my self-imposed exile from the hallowed halls of Dorkgasm, my first step was to renew my professional contacts. First off the bat was a call to James Zahn, the multi-hyphenate auteur behind the Death Walks the Streets multimedia brand. You may remember from an article by our own Hearstian editor Michael Reidlinger in regards to Zahn's presence at this years Chicago Wizard World. Well, it turns out that big events are in store for one of the most eagerly awaited franchises in film. Yes, sir, big things.

So, I brought you a picture of Justin Chatwin a little while ago in the guise of Goku from the Dragon Ball Z movie. It would seem that a lot of people thought it looked kinda... you know... Fucking stupid. Well, I have more cast pics available now, and I think we will all be able to agree that this does not inspire any confidence whatsoever. So, without any further ado, I bring to you... Joon Park as "Yamcha"

Welcome the next generation Horror film!!!!!!!

I received an e-mail from the fine people who organize horrorfest every year and I learned something very interesting. It seems that there was one film from the 2007 Afterdark Horrorfest that was left out because the content of said movie was too horrific for mainstream theathers, they basically refused to show it.

Update on the Uwe hunt

The petition has now reached 203,000 signatures.
Future updates to come.
Now, come on people, can someone start a petition to end the careers of anyone and everyone with the creation of "meet the spartans"? Seriously, Uwe's movies may suck some ass, but they've never made any money, yet another "(something) movie" will come out soon, and will undeniably make enough money to warrant another one, and undeniably suck 100 times harder than anything Uwe ever did.
Just my thoughts...

Holy fuckin crap!

Alright, I loved postal as much as the next guy (if that next guy actually saw it, but holy fuckin crap, there is an online petition to stop Uwe Boll from ever making a film again. He's gone on record stating that if over 1 million people sign this petition, he'll give up.
So make your voice heard. Whether you love him (cough cough Ken cough) or hate him, (cough cough everyone Cough COUGH) this could be the end of Dr. Boll's film making career.
The petition is already at nearly 138,000 signatures.
You can "sign" the petition at
