This is my review of the movie The Lawnmower Man starring Pierce Brosnan and Jeff Fahey. Let the running commentary of doom begin.
Running commentary -
Starts off with two scientists talking about a virtual reality program they are using on a chimpanzee. This is followed by an old school 3D computer generated battle sequence.That night the money gets loose and takes the virtual reality helmet. The monkey kills a guard and steals his gun and card key. Turns out it was only a nightmare the programmer was having.Turns out all of it was real and he gets a call about it. Brosnan (the programmer) says he warned them about the aggression before being told to take a break.The boss guy wants him back because without him there is no project 5.As usual the main character is dating some hot babe.The Lawnmower Man is like a simpleton character.The neighbor is a child abuser and a drunk.There's a lot of abusing characters in this movie.Now the programmer guy suckers Job into being his test subject. What a manipulative jerkwad. This guy deserves what's coming to him.Now he's manipulating him by saying he's going to make him smart. This has disaster written all over it.There's a babe living next door and Job is watching her. That's not good for later on.The virtual reality scenes in this movie are reallt antiquated.Job is now more muscular, better looking, and now the babe is interested in him.The top secret laboratory in this movie is awesome looking.The young woman seduces Job and they have sex.WHOA! He's having side effects where he's going in and out of reality and virtual reality. He can hear people's thoughts too. Awesome.Now he's taken his girlfriend to the virtual reality laboratory.Job's woman wants out but he wont let her out. Now he's a virtual reality creature and is scaring her.Job now wants to find out what the doctor did to him.Job wants to evolve but Dr. Angelo says its too risky and now Job is trying to get inside of his head.Job sneaks into the lab and starts injecting himself with the intelligence formula.Now Dr. Angelo is beating up his boss. This is crazy.Job is now talking in a robotic type voice and the preacher thinks the devil has taken over him. HOLY CRAP! HE JUST USED HIS MIND POWERS TO MAKE THE PRIEST CATCH ON FIRE AND BE BURNED ALIVE!The Lawnmower Man now uses his powers to move objects and to put the lawnmower man inside of the town bully's head like a virus. Unbelievable.The abuser dad turns on the television and it's WWF with Tito Santana vs. some jobber guy lol.Now the Lawnmower Man shows up at the boy's house and puts him and his mother to sleep before killing the abusive dad character with a possessed lawnmower.The police chief thinks it was a satan cult behind all of this, lol.Dr. Angelo finds Job and he's in the fourth dimension. Says he's going to be conduit and project himself into the mainframe computer. Says he will make every phone on the planet ring when he goes inside. Job then uses his powers to detain Dr. Angelo.WHOA! HE JUST PROJECTED A GIANT HEAD AND VAPORIZED TWO AGENTS BY MAKING THEM TURN INTO PIECES BEFORE DISAPPEARING! AWESOME!Job tells him his plan to take over the whole computer network and that they will be plugged into him.Job uses his powers to put everyone in a virtual dimension trap or something. Now he's hooked up to the virtual reality mainframe as Dr. Angelo shows up to stop him armed with a gun and explosives.Whoa...he looks awesome in his virtual reality form. Dr. Angelo gets inside of the virtual reality realm and confronts Job. Angelo says this power shouldn't be under the control of one person. He says he's not even human even more.Virtual reality Dr. Angelo looks like Silver Surfer mixed with T-1000 in this scene.The Lawnmower Man has lost all of his physical powers after transferring into the virtual dimension. Now Job frees Angelo to save Peter and tells him to hurry.Dr. Angelo and Peter escape just before the laboratory explodes. The Lawnmower Man escapes into another computer system just before the explosion too.Dr. Angelo takes his research underground to make up for what he did and is living with Peter and his mom. They are about to leave when every phone on Earth rings to signal that Job is still alive.
Overall going to give this a 3 out of 5 stars. The story was great but the graphics were antiquity compared to what they are now. However the characters weren't bad and the Lawnmower Man character was great. Not bad but still looks very dated compared to how it is now.
This time on James and Art at the movies we cover the movie Demons III: The Ogre. This is a really obscure horror movie that is set mainly in Italy. The best parts of this are Part 5 due to Castle Freak references), Part 6 (we have a discussion about vampire movies), Part 11 (there's always a skeptic), Part 18 (more sketicism), Part 20

In this edition of James and Art at the Movies we cover the movie The Unborn. We really hated this movie with a passion and went on rants during the videos which pretty amusing. The highlights of this are the rants about this not being a horror movie and me saying that "This is going to be more disgusting than Snooki."

In this edition of James and Art at the Movies we cover the movie Year One. This movie stars Jack Black and Michael Cera as well as Oliver Platt as the High Priest which is BY FAR the most amusing and horrifying character in this entire movie. The most amusing videos are Part 8, Part 12 (Art and I rip into WrestleMania XXVII), Part 18 (we notice that all of the characters in the scene look like they're from different eras), and Part 20 (because of the High Priest).

This is my review of the movie Fast Five that I saw yesterday. Now I wasn't expecting this to be that good. I was thinking it would be more like Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift to be honest. However I was completely wrong. This movie was GREAT. None of the characters annoyed me which was the biggest shocker. I think that also played a role into why I liked the movie. The action sequences are superb especially the last car chase scene that you know is coming. It's the main event of this movie and it doesn't disappoint. If you like movies where they just have car chases and blow stuff up for two hours. There's foot chases, car chasses, shoot-outs, explosions, foot chases, and everything else you an imagine. The fist fight scene pitting Rock against Vin is great. The car scenes are good, as always. The Rock does his best work in this movie. His character is a non nonsense bad ass and he shows no mercy. I also liked Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Jordana Brewster's acting in this movie. However the most amusing side character was Han Lue played by Sung Kang. His character amused me every time he was on the screen. Without giving away any of the plot I will say that this movie mainly takes place in Rio de Janeiro and that there's lots of chaos in it. Solid film that I will recommend to watch. Liked this movie a lot.
These are my predictions for the upcoming pay-per-view WWE Extreme Rules which will be taking place later today.
Ladder Match for the Vacant World Heavyweight Championship, Alberto Del Rio vs. Christian -
Going to have to pick Christian to win this. With Del Rio going to RAW I don't see him winning the World Championship from Smackdown but if he does win then he'd probably lose it in a month. However, that said, I do think this will be one of the three best matches on the show along with the Mania rematches of Rhodes/Mysterio and Punk/Orton. Christian will win this.
Triple Threat Steel Cage Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, The Miz (c) vs. John Cena vs. John Morrison -
My pick to win this is John Cena. If Miz wins I think he'll climb out over the top of the cage or something fluky to win the match and retain his championship. However I have to go with Cena because of the fact that tomorrow The Rock will be on RAW and he'll get into it with Cena since Cena will probably have a Championship Win celebration if he wins the title tonight. Either Cena or Miz will win this but I'm leaning toward Cena because of Rock being on RAW tomorrow night.
Last Man Standing Match, CM Punk vs. Randy Orton -
Orton will win this. He needs a momentum boost going to a new show and this win will be it. I do think Punk will control most of the action because, let's face it, he's the best there is in the industry right now overall as far as mic and ring skills as an overall package are concerned. I do think the New Nexus will get involved somehow but so will APPLE or some random face wrestlers to run them off.
Falls Count Anywhere Match, Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio -
Going with Rhodes to win this. My reasoning for this is that if Christian wins the World Championship like I think he will Rhodes in my mind is the next challenger for him. His new "deformed freak" dark character is the best thing on WWE right now other than Punk. Rhodes has made strides in all areas and I can see him and Christian feuding over the belt through the next few months.
Tag Team Country Whipping Match, Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross vs. Michael Cole and Jack Swagger -
Cole and Swagger for the win. I think that Lawler and Ross will get control but Swagger will take over and allow Cole to get the Ankle Lock on Ross to win it.
Loser Leaves WWE Match, Layla vs. Michelle McCool -
Layla in an upset. I heard somewhere that McCool needs some time off and that is why they are booking this match. With that said I think Layla will win because of this and will probably be getting a face push in the near future.
Eastern Conference -
Chicago Bulls vs. Atlanta Hawks -
Going by what I saw in the first round I'm going to have to pick the Hawks in 7 in an upset. The Bulls did not look good even when they were winning against the Pacers. They were lucky to win that series in 5. The Hawks are a much better team than the Pacers are and the Bulls are going to have a hard time keeping them under control. If they can't handle the Pacers then they wont be able to handle a better team like the Hawks unless they get their crap together and fast. Rose is going to need to have a monster series in order for the Bulls to win.
Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat -
Celtics in 7. I think LeBron and company are going to have some good games but the Celtics will win out because of Rondo. The Heat have three really good players but the Celtics have four and that's why they're going to win. Rondo is going to have a great series and I think Lebron will too. However the Celtics are moer playoff tested and have one more scorer which is why I'm going with them.
Western Conference -
Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks -
Lakers in 6. Dallas is to me isn't all that great and the Lakers have too many options for them to keep under control. Kobe, Gasol, Artest, Bynum, and Fisher are going to be enough to send the Lakers to the Western Conference Finals again.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies -
Thunder in 7. This will be the best series overall because both have wild home crowd atmospheres and both teams are young and can run up and down the court. I think the Thunder will win but if the Grizzlies had Rudy Gay then there's no doubt in my ind that they would win the series. However Zach Randolph is becoming a major star in the league in these playoffs and could push Memphis over the top if they win this series.
