OH JEEPERS! THERE ARE ROBOTS, MR. WILSON
Oh man I totally TOLD you guys this was double Tophat post week on Monday, didn’t I? Look at me carrying through with promises that no one was really looking forward to, or will even enjoy. I do this for you. My fan. Yes, I’m pretty sure there is only about 1.3 of you out there, and it’s always difficult holding a conversation with .3 of a person. Oh look at that I’m rambling again. Lets just move on to the portion of this post where I actually talk about something entertainment-ways.
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Wait, sorry. I mean SKY CAPTAIN and the WORLD OF TOMORROW. The caps are key for drama, you see. It’s a movie that features a guy, some zeppelins, giant robots, and also possibly Gwyneth Paltrow.

I always enjoy a Denzel Washington movie. This is an undeniable fact. Whether he’s stumbling through the wastelands or leading his mixed-race team to victory he’s got it going on. It’s hard to say what his biggest movie is because he has stretched across a wide gambit over the years. He can always keep his head when the situation gets tough and he’s often cold and calculating. My favorite Denzel performance is probably Man on Fire or John Q. He seems to be at his best when he is faced with impossible situations. But, my favorite Denzel movie is The Bone Collector, released in 1999. Denzel, may I call him Denzel?, makes for a very dynamic and expressive quadriplegic. As you can imagine in a movie about a bedridden cop, the movie is all about mind games and I’m a sucker for some good old Sherlock Holmes. In fact, The Bone Collector combines a slew of things I love. Detective puzzles with elaborate clues, New York City, historical references and old books, I already mentioned Denzel, and Angelina Jolie. This is one of two movies featuring Angelina before I really knew who she was. The second I believe I mentioned last week. (more…)

Cover of Gone in 60 Seconds
Jerry Bruckheimer’s Gone in 60 Seconds in one of the few films I actually own, which means I must really like it. And I do. But like many Hollywood films it’s actually a remake. The original Gone in 60 Seconds was a cult classic independent film with no plot, almost no budget, and a forty minute car chase that is surpassed in spectacle only by Jake and Elwood themselves. The chase is shorter than Vanishing Point, more dramatic than Bullitt, and much more exciting than Smoky and the Bandit, and yet it is surpassed by its remake in several crucial areas. (more…)

BECAUSE ITS AWESOME THAT'S WHY
It has long since been established that doctors, those brave few who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of knowledge in the medical field in order to save the lives of those who need help, are also comedic gold. But, it should be noted, that doctors are only really funny when they are also busy being something ridiculous in addition to their more serious roles as doctors. I recently stumbled across Doctor Cops, MD, wherein the world’s most badass doctors step up to take the hippocopic oath to catch those who had assaulted the innocent, and possibly cure their patient victims of hand cancer.
But Doctor Cops, MD isn’t a typical web comic. Written by a man only known as “Andrew,” the tale is presented as a story board for a new prime time television show proposed to a surly television executive by a super-excited fan who is absolutely in love with cop and medical dramas. While you can, indeed, tune in to see the continuing adventures of Detective Doctor Dick Dynamite and Sergeant Surgeon Solomon Slick, the real draw is to see the interactions of producer Max King and Walter Reid (though he prefers to be called by his pen name, Romeo T. Magnum).
