Shred II


Spaz covered this during the past weekend in his Kanadian Korner. What is there to say about it?

  • It's a sequel to a snowboarding movie.
  • ... a snowboarding movie starring Tom Green.
  • ... which pretty much nobody saw.
  • ... which is just as well, because this one re-uses some of the footage.

As Spaz pointed out, it looks like they filmed both movies at the same time.

It's a grade-Z film, and it's pretty much a total waste of time. The script could have been written by 8th graders. Even the stoner jokes are dull.

However, it does have Lindsay Maxwell topless, and she is gorgeous. So there's that.

There's also this chick, whoever she is.


  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

The Reader


For the first 45 minutes of 2008's The Reader, you may wonder what all the fuss is about. Sure, it is an interesting enough story of a young man's involvement with an older woman, but is it worth 12 Oscar wins and 23 nominations? The answer is probably yes, certainly in the case of Kate Winslet who won Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.

In Germany shortly after the end of World War 2, teenager Michael falls seriously ill on his way home from school, and is befriended by Hanna (Kate Winslet), who helps him get home. Hanna is a working-class woman twice Michael's age, a conductor on a streetcar.

After recovering from scarlet fever, Michael seeks Hanna out only to thank her, but is fascinated by her, and a secretive but passionate affair soon ensues. As the relationship grows, Michael discovers that Hanna loves being read to, and he reads to her from classics and popular works. Both their physical and emotional bonds grow, until one day Hanna simply disappears. Michael is heartbroken.

Eight years later and now a law student, Michael is observing the Nazi war crime trails when he is shocked to discover that Hanna is one of the defendants. How Hanna's past is revealed, and how Michael deals with it, make up the balance of this intriguing movie.

Once you've seen The Reader, you'll probably agree with the awards. It is an intricate and thoroughly well done story containing great character studies, and a great look at how people deal with one another. I enjoyed it. The caps are from the Blu-ray version.

Film Clips

Claudia Christian in Never on a Tuesday. Probably the best clips we've seen from this film, which is rarely seen. Claudia was in her prime and topless; the movie is odd.
