Your Weekend Justice #165: The Venn Diagram of My Fiendom

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that wants to strap you to a giant Pinewood Derby car without wheels, like some mad Bond villain deathtrap, and roll you into a vat of cottage cheese. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    Win Bending All the Rules on DVD!

    Bending All the Rules DVD

    It’s Bending All the Rules, out from Lionsgate on DVD. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

    Kenna (Colleen Porch, I Know Who Killed Me) is a serial dater, who always puts her love life behind her career. When she finally lands her lifetime dream – her own photography exhibition – her cool and casual personal life turns hot, too. Kenna finds herself being pursued by two very different men – Jeff (Bradley Cooper, The Hangover), the sensitive artsy type, and Martin (David Gail, TV’s “Port Charles”), the slick man of power. The two vie for Kenna’s affection, and she wonders if she can have both love and success.

    We’ve got three copies of the DVD to give away. Want to win one? Excellent. Here’s how that happens: you enter using the form below. Remember you can enter once a day. If we draw your name when the contest ends, you snag it! Good luck!

    Why Limitless is About Cyborgs and Magic

    Limitless poster

    So, UnknownBinaries & I recently saw Limitless. Now the film’s animating premise is an old one, and you hear it in nearly every piece of science fiction concerned with human enhancement: we only use ten or fifteen or

    [insert number] percent of our brain or brain power or potential…or whatever. The science behind this trope isn’t strictly correct, mind you, but it’s not completely false either. It’s hard to talk about the operations of the brain without falling into the heavily loaded language of “efficiency,” “carrying capacity,” “throughput,” “processing power,” etc. The problem with all of that talk is that it’s directly tied to the ideas of production and consumption, which are values that come directly out of the mass-production developments of the techno-industrial revolution–and I don’t just mean the musical style. What I’m saying is these words taint and colour everything we do and every way we talk nowadays, and the reason I bring this up is so we can try to talk about the brain.

    The Midnight Meat Train (2008) – Movie Review

    Midnight Meat Train

    Written by: Jeff Buhler, based on the short story by Clive Barker
    Directed by: Ryuhei Kitamura
    Starring: Bradley Cooper, Leslie Bibb, Roger Bart, Brooke Shields and Vinnie Jones

    My Advice: See it

    Clive Barker, genius that he is, hasn’t had the best of luck with film adaptations of his work. Sure Hellraiser was spectacular, and Candyman was pretty damned scary, though not completely faithful… Other than those, few adaptations do his text justice. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw The Midnight Meat Train, especially given its publicity (or lack there of…more on that in a bit). It’s based on the short story of the same name. It was originally published in 1984 with Books of Blood, Volume 1, and can now be found in the Berkley Trade published Books of Blood Omnibus, Volume 1, which collects the first 3 volumes.

    The Hangover (2009) – Movie Review

    The Hangover movie poster

    Written by: Jon Lucas & Scott Moore
    Directed by: Todd Phillips
    Starring: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Heather Graham

    My Advice: Matinee.

    Doug’s (Bartha) getting married. So there’s only one thing to do: borrow the bride-to-be’s (Sasha Barrese) father’s (Jeffrey Tambor) car (itself) and grab two friends (Cooper and Helms), the future brother-in-law (Galifianakis) and head to Vegas for a night of insane partying. The running gag is that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…and the quartet appear to have taken that to the extreme. Because the next morning Vegas appears to have taken not only their memories of the night previous but also Doug himself. He’s nowhere to be found, and the three “survivors” have to piece together whatever clues they have to figure out just what the hell happened and where they lost Doug.
