William Castle Presents…Saw 3D?

One of my favorite bad trailers of all time is My Bloody Valentine 3D.  The trailer does a fine job of advertising for the film; it’s not until the end of it when things go horribly awry.  You see, according to the trailer fire is going to fly out of the screen.  Observe this still:

“But wait, Logan, ya lovable trickster,” you say.  “That’s just advertising the fact that the film is 3D!”  Then I ask you: Why are the people looking up?  I’m no expert, but I don’t quite think 3D works that way, Lionsgate.

But it seems that Lionsgate never got my memo, as now they’ve gone and done it again with the new Saw 3D trailer.  No fire this time.  This time?  Oh, this time one of the characters is actually going to come out of the screen, reach into your theater, and pull you into the movie.  I’m not making this up.  Let’s watch:

People, this is blatant false advertising.  In fact, if I go to see Saw 3D and the theater has NOT equipped my seat with a spiky torture device thingy that comes over my head and locks me in place…oh, I’m going to be mad.

Stupid Nerd Ruined Once Again by Ryan’s Voice

Listen to Stupid Nerd


Stupid NerdA little cross-promotion action for you, folks. Critical End’s Me (Ryan) recently made a guest appearance on Arnie Niekamp’s podcast Stupid Nerd.  Each week, Arnie interviews people about different nerdy subjects in order to expand his nerd knowledge.  This episode, he learns about vampire-themed LARPing, and while I’m not a LARPer, I am a huge nerd and had fun sitting in and learning (and occasionally cracking wise).

Check it out on iTunes or just play it below.

And now: An Excerpt From Logan’s Diary

Yeah, I blog on a typewriter.  Got a problem with that?

Yeah, I blog on a typewriter. Got a problem with that?

Dear Diary,

It started off just like any other day: After crying myself to sleep, I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and quickly started off to work.

I arrived at the office slightly late (I had to return home at one point to put on some pants), but took the back stairs anyway to avoid Tina, the receptionist, as I still haven’t returned her calls. Unfortunately, I ran into my supervisor, Steve, who yelled at me for constantly being late. Luckily, I know just how to deal with Steve.

“Shove it up your butt, motorcycle man!” I yelled at him before locking myself in my office and throwing a file cabinet in front of the door. Yup, it looked like I had another splendid day of solitaire and in store for me!

However, as I sat at my desk, a strange feeling came over me, and I had to stop and think (see picture). What was that feeling? At first I thought that it might be a small newt of some sort that crawled into my ear and laid eggs on my frontal lobe, but then I remembered what my psychiatrist said about how unlikely that was to happen. Hmmm…oh! I know! Critical End! Diary, you won’t believe some of the amazing things that have happened over the past month at! It’s totally righteous!

First off, the highly awesome folks over at said some great things about us. They compared us to other film critics, saying that we are “certainly way more funny” (actual quote) and even “completely squeezable” (I made that one up). It was very overwhelming. Thanks guys!

Also, we finally launched our About page! Not only are there some frequently asked questions about our site listed there, but also a nifty way to check out our complete IMDB ratings and even fan us on Netflix. It’s all incredibly, for lack of a better word, sexellent.

Well, diary, that’s about it. I’ll make sure to write in you again before the big sock hop rolls around. I do hope that Laura asks me out. She’s ever so dreamy!

Have a bitchin’ summer,
