Afrojacks DVD Recommendation: Kill Me Again

Afrojacks DVD Recommendation: Kill Me Again

After flicking around on a late night recently I came across a movie from 1989 I couldn’t believe I’d never heard of before.  Val Kilmer and Michael Madsen??  In a mystery crime drama (by far my favorite genre)?  I was hooked from the TiVo description alone but a little apprehensive as it was late at...

Afrojacks DVD Recommendation - Le Samouraï

Afrojacks DVD Recommendation – Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï, directed by Jean-Pierre Mellville, is possibly one of the finest crime drama/film noir/thriller films ever made.  The plot is simple, Jef Costello, a lethal and perfectionist hit man, is hired to kill a nightclub owner which gets messy and soon thereafter he is being chased by both his employers as well as the...

Afrojacks Top 5 Movies of ’09

Afrojacks Top 5 Movies of ’09

In a year in which animated 3D films dominated the box office and Nazi killin’ never looked like more fun, I’d have to say that 2009 was a kind of double edged sword type of year for films.  On one hand, there were a ton of entertaining, smart and interesting films but on the other,...

Afrojacks Movie Recommendation - Fantastic Mr. Fox

Yes, it’s a glorified kids movie, but this kids movie could be the best film released of ’09 and at the very least it’s in the top 5.  In short it’s got everything you want: great music, great cast, a very unique look, Wes Anderson’s trade mark quirkiness without the pretentiousness, consistently laugh out loud...

Tyson, a documentary directed by James Toback (Bugsy, Two Girls & a Guy, Black & White) is mix of archival footage/photographs and a sit down with Tyson who tells his life story as he sees in an effort to clear the air and tell the real story that isn’t spun by the media.  It starts...

Louis CK - Chewed Up DVD

I guess the Deadspin article on Louis CK sums it up best and after seeing him do a surprise show in Brooklyn last winter, I whole heartedly agree: “He’s better than Chris Rock. He’s better than Dave Attell. He’s better than Dave Chappelle, and Dave Chappelle can you make you laugh simply by standing still....

Jim Breuer shouts out The Fro (and promotes his DVD of course)

Jim Breuer shouts out The Fro (and promotes his DVD of course)

“Let’s Clear The Air” highlights topics ranging from his Long Island childhood experiences, things he finds funny with his own family, parental responsibility, and anecdotes about his experiences with other comedians (like Dave Chappelle and Tracey Morgan). Needless to say, this ish will be hysterical. Stand up performance premieres on Comedy Central Saturday, July 25...

Afrojacks DVD Recomendation - Taken

Taken = Bourne + Comando in a very underated action movie When an a movie makes you wish the lead actor played the lead in every other movie in the same drama, then perhaps that movie (and of course the actor) is just a little bit better than its peers.  In Taken, Liam Neeson plays...

Afrojacks DVD Recomendation - Repo Man

Most movies made in the 80′s feel cheesy, low budget, and dated because advancements in technology and time in general has not been so kind.  Then sometimes time will give you the opposite effect where the cheesy 80′s movie is escalated from under the radar to a cult classic, and that’s exactly whats happened to...

Afrojacks DVD Recomendation - The Hammer

When it comes to sports movies, let alone boxing movies, there is a short list of titles that have all the elements that make a well rounded movie (Rocky, Raging Bull, Cinderella Man come to mind but thats about it).  Its pretty damn close to impossible to have great acting in an interesting, original story...
