Here at MN we have been following this movie closely for a while, eagerly anticipating its release, and as it turns out you can catch it up in Denver. We are trying to get in touch with the production company to possibly get a copy of it to review, but if that doesn't go down, we are planning on donning our "buddy passes" and dramamine; and flying out to Denver to catch a showing, if we do will will be sure to have lots of pics for y'all. "Ink" is a Jamin Winans film produced by Double Edge Films. Official site is here.

There once was a movie that could, and it was called "Fatal Attraction"
There once was a movie that couldn't, it they called "Swimfan"
Then there was a movie that shouldn't, and its name was "Obsessed"
Staring Beyoncé Knowles (you may know her from, "music") and Ali Larter (from, "nothing really worth meantioning for the last few years") comes a story about a woman obsessed, and a woman scorn, and a cat fight, and a wife out to regain... and so on blah blah...
Obsessed opens today, if you didn't pick that up from the 2 hour special TBS did on it last night. Whereby making it one of the most advertised rehashes in a while, and a movie with better previews than content. ...and that is the pinch and twist of it.
Jez Williams(Guitar, Vocals), his brother Andy Williams(Drums, Vocals) and Jimi Goodwin(Bass, Vocals, Guitar) are the three musicians behind the inspiring and earthy sounds found on "Kingdom Of Rust", the title track and first single from the bands fourth studio album.
My attention was caught by the indie rock three piece, whilst surfin' the world wide web for tattoo ideas. For once, my wavering attention span led me somewhere other than a porn site and for that I am grateful...

Hollywood has a throng of celebrities at their disposal when a big budget film needs a well known face to boost the chance of a profit. Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew Mcconaughey and Brad Pitt, are actors that are called upon to carry the weight of films, when they are encumbered by predictable storylines and z-list actors. In “The Knowing” the producers chose Nicholas Cage, a tried and true veteran of the suspense genre. The rest of the cast are relatively unknown and are hardly worth mentioning, except perhaps as a model for those attempting to learn poor acting skills. The Special effects in this film are breathtakingly realistic and perhaps the only saving grace within its one hour and fifty five minute run time. I have yet to see a more impressive train wreck on film,(double entendre?) and the only plane crash that can hold a candle to the one in this movie, is the one featured in “lost”.
The studio enlisted the directing duties of Alex Proyas, who has directed notable films in the past, such as “I,Robot” and “The Crow”. All in all, this movie is predictable, (especially if you’ve seen the trailer) it leaves you emotionally stranded, and it will leave your wallet suffering from buyer’s remorse. If you don’t care about an engaging story, dialogue delivered by actors with a sense of human emotion, or knowing the ending before the movie even starts, than this is the movie to see…

This is new song from Sean Kingston and Lil' Wayne. Go figure right, two guys that are on everything, we like it though. Also, Lil' Wayne is supposed to come out with a new (rock) album. I don't know really what the target audience for that is though it seems like all the "rocker" kids will call him a poser and all the "hip-hop" kids will call him a sell out. Still, the first single "Prom Queen" is pretty darn catchy. You can argue with progress I guess.
Check out Prom Queen.
