I am a social media person. My teenage years were devoutly chronicled on Livejournal, I released my own music on Myspace back in 2004, and when I discovered Twitter in late 2008, I was hooked in the worst way. I still operated a Facebook page, despite by aversion to the platform, and I explored every new iteration of social media; Tumblr, Google+, Pinterest, Ello and yes, even Yo. Yet I have a love/hate relationship with social media. Twitter manages to be both the most individualistic medium, yet also contains within it the largest mobs of any in this digital era. Facebook is literally the most misinformative structure I’ve encountered and Tumblr isn’t much better. So I don’t have any kind of emotional attachment, and like a sibling, some days »

[Brew To A Kill] Friday The 13th (2009) and Cereal Killer

13 November 2015 8:08 AM, PST

Here it is Friday November 13, 2015. The latest in many tentative release dates for the latest installment of the Friday the 13th franchise. But there is no movie. How has it been so difficult for a franchise based around the number 13 been able to produce 13 films? In a search for answers let’s look back at the latest entry, the 2009 Friday the 13th remake.

Camp Crystal Lake June 13, 1980, after a 24 hour killing spree, Pamela Voorhees is decapitated by a camp counselor who fought back. 30 years later a group of friends go camping in search of marijuana fields. What they find is much worse. Jason Voorhees, who makes short work of them. Six weeks later even more jerks head out to Crystal Lake to party. Throw in a guy (Jared Padalecki) looking for his sister who went missing six weeks ago. And Jason kills most of them.

Let’s start with the good. »

Comic Review: The Goddamned

Jason Aaron is best known as the Man Who Made Thor A Lady. Which is hardly the most transgressive thing he’d written up until that point; his Vietnam War series was about as seriously critical an examination of the topic as comics can be and doesn’t let anyone, least of all the United States military, walk away unscathed. But with a title like The Goddamned, one gets the feeling Aaron might have been pulling punches so far. It’s not necessarily surprising; he’s openly talked about becoming an atheist after growing up in a Southern Baptist family but this is, as he said, definitely “not going to be for everyone.” But is it for you, the discerning reader of Destroy The Brain?

Well, let’s talk about what The Goddamned is about. »

11 November 2015 10:37 AM, PST

Hey fiends! We have a contest for you to win The Gift on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD Combo Pack. Personally, The Gift was a nice surprise earlier this year. What looks like a typical Fatal Attraction-esque thriller actually hides some sinister tones in the film. You can read more via my review.

The Gift asks the question, “Can you really go through life having never wronged anyone?” Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton star in the chilling psychological thriller about a young married couple whose life is going as planned until a chance run-in with Simon’s high-school acquaintance sends their world into a narrowing tailspin. Own the suspenseful and thrilling morality tale The Gift, now on Blu-Ray™, DVD & Digital HD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
