Em (2008) - News Poster



Album Review: Cliff Martinez – Far Cry 4 Ost

I don’t play first person shooters anymore. Back in the early days of the Xbox, I was a fervent, if untalented, Halo addict, staying up until all hours of the night with three friends in a cramped bedroom repeating the same loop of Hang ‘Em High, Boarding Action and Battle Creek, every game ending invariably with me at the bottom of the scoreboard. We rarely played the single-player; it was fun but it didn’t provide the same adrenaline-pumping, nerve-scraping experience we compulsively craved. I cut my teeth on Halo: Combat Evolved but it didn’t take long for me to discover that, as first-person shooters went, it won my attention by merit of being the only game of its ilk we had access to, lacking high end PCs with which we could experience the games whose shoulders it stood on to attain its marvelous heights.

DVD Playhouse: June 2010

DVD Playhouse—June 2010


Allen Gardner

The White Ribbon (Sony) On the eve of Ww I, a small village in Germany is struck by a series of tragic, seemingly unconnected events until the townspeople, and the audience, start to connect the dots. Shot in stark, beautiful black & white, director Michael Haneke has fashioned a haunting metaphorical drama that is as coldly chilling as anything made by Ingmar Bergman, and darkly unsettling as anything from the canon of David Lynch. A rich, tough, brilliant cinematic experience you’re not likely to forget. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bd bonuses: Interviews with cast and crew; featurettes. Widescreen Dolby and DTS 5.1 surround.

Alice In Wonderland (Disney) Tim Burton’s take on the Lewis Carroll classic finds young Alice (Mia Wasikowska), a 19th century girl who finds herself in an unhappy engagement to a boorish suitor, tumbling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she encounters magical cakes,

Teaser for haunting bipolar tale of love Em

Ugh, someone should have told these folks about de-interlacing, and while it kind of messes with the teaser it still looks utterly incredible. This is an indepth look at the bi-polar disorder, and for those who've seen it up close it's quite a scary mental illness. I'm not talking about that flippant "oh you're moody" crap, I mean the real deal bouncing off the walls and alternately suicidal horror that the disease is.

Ever made eye contact with someone from across the room and wondered what the future could be like in a relationship with them? Josh Weathers (Nathan Wetherington) did just that, and he and Amanda "Em" Helms (Stef Willen) actually start an amazing life together. After that chance meeting, they spend a night, read poetry in bed, and move in together; however, their love takes a nasty turn for the worse as Amanda's past starts to rear its ugly head.
