More fun than 56 shots of peach schnapps!
Viva La Bam! Oh how Iâd lusted after seeing this show. After an agonizing wait in which our very own Gimmick had this DVD on order for some months, it finally arrived. Only to be followed a week later by yet another copy for our viewing pleasure. Well, it all worked out in the endâ¦
Viva La Bam is the latest brainchild from MTV and CKY/Jackass star Bam Margera. He brings back the characters we all love, such as Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, Raab Himself, Jenn Rivell, Rake Yohn, Phil, April and the legendary Don Vito. Also along for the ride are Tony Hawk, Compton-ass Terry, Bucky Lasek, The Bloodhound Gang and Australiaâs own Jason Ellis. This DVD set includes 2 disks. One with all eight uncensored episodes from season 1, and another with all the bonus crap, such as some hilarious ... Read On
|Revenge of the Geeks|
Star Wars Episode III opening night!
The day we had all be waiting for, as dedicated Star Wars geeks, was finally upon us. The opening of the final Star Wars movie of all time - Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Man what a movie. Talk about doing things in reverse. If you're after a happy ending, you are out of luck. This movie is very reminisent of Empire Strikes Back in its mood and vibe - and the whole leaving you hanging at the end thing. However, it was very powerful and well written. ... Read On
|Star Wars goes to the small screen|
Not to mention made right here in the land of OZ!
Yes it is official and has been confirmed by the man himself George Lucas. Star Wars will be coming to a television near you some time after Episode III finishes circulation in theatres.... Read On
|Bad Santa DVD Review|
Ho! Ho! Ho!
It took AGES for this to make it out in Australia, but that's not really anything new is it? Bad Santa is now available here on DVD and I'm very glad of that because it rocks. If you like your comedy pitch black then this is one movie you will want to check out right away. However, the easily (or even not-so-easily) offended and those hoping for more "traditional" Christmas-themed fare most definitely ought to give it a miss. In the end though, it actually turns out to be quite touching.... Read On
|Shaun of the Dead DVD Review|
Beer. Video games. Zombies. Sounds like Buttonhole to me.
This movie was billed as âA romantic comedy. With zombies.â That alone was enough to make me keen to see it. Iâd also heard and read plenty of praise for the British film, which seemed to take forever to reach Australian shores. When I finally did see Shaun of the Dead, I was pleased to find that I enjoyed it even more than Iâd expected to. Now that the movie is available on DVD I can watch it whenever I want!... Read On
|Hero DVD Review|
Mugwai asks Jet Li "Did you ever know that you're my hero?"
This is a beautiful movie. A cerebral experience, for me so much that I felt guilty for watching any mainstream blockbuster film afterwards. Iâm not meaning to be poignant here, though this is not just an incredible martial arts movie and that it is. Behind the almost operatic and visually dramatic fight sequences, is an incredible tale of honour, love, passion and wisdom with the age old proverb â the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few....

|Alien vs. Predator|
A review from someone who liked it!
I know that I will be howled down by many people for this â but I thought this was a great film. I think it is a good example of what a fan can do if he has an original idea, and is given the resources to bring that idea to life. Director Paul Anderson is a self confessed fan of the Alien and Predator franchises, and blends the mythology of both films beautifully, as well as supplying some great action.... Read On

Madame Hoopla says this is a "must own" dvd.

âEvery living creature on Earth dies aloneâ Grandma Death tells Donnie. After a jet engine crashes into his bedroom it seems that Donnie has dodged fate thanks to the help of his six foot rabbit friend âFrankâ. Or has he?... Read On

Buttonhole's Sammy and Kris interview New Zealand's Mark
As a brief introduction, I figured I'd explain how this interview came about. Basically, it went like thisâ¦ a little while ago, I was happy to receive the following email: ... Read On
|Hellboy: Director's Cut (3 Disc Edition)|
There is not a big price difference between Hellboy â The Directorâs Cut and the basic one disc package. For an extra ten bucks you get a another two discs worth of special features, a mini-comic, a reproduction of Rasputinâs journal, a limited edition âSenitypeâ and ten minutes of extra footage....

Kevin Smith gets all "grown up"
Ah, Mister Kevin Smith; the film writer/director and comic book author/fanboy geek. Heâs a favourite amongst many of my generation, including myself as a matter of fact. Kevinâs work is not for everyone though and his detractors seem to be almost as passionate as his fans. Although Jersey Girl is quite different to his other movies in various ways, it is still very much a Kevin Smith film at heart. There is far less in the way of swearing and dick and fart jokes here though, so maybe even some non-fans could dig it.... Read On
|Jackass The Movie|
Fazz's Haggard review inspired me to post this old one
Remember the class clown? When you were a kid in school (or, indeed, if you still are a kid in school) chances are you can recall this one dude who constantly did stupid things to make everyone laugh because, basically, that was all he was able to do.... Read On
|Spider-Man 2. DVD Review|
Does whatever a spider can.
The second Spidey movie has more of everything than the first. More impressive action sequences, more romance, more humour and more of that fiery, sexy lady herself; Aunt May (Rosemary Harris)! And Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) is in there too...
The plot picks up not long after the events of the original film. Peter is now in college and he's even more of a dorky loser than ever. You know those days when nothing you do seems to work out and absolutely everything seems to go wrong?... Read On
|X-Men 2. DVD Review|
Was doing superhero flicks, so figured I'd add this one too
Yet another in the recent, seemingly endless, string of movies based on characters from Marvel Comics (and many, many others are on the way) the X-Men franchise has a fanatical fan base on par with followers of the Star Wars, Star Trek or Lord of the Rings series.... Read On
|Team America - F#@k Yeah Animation|
Warning - Some viewers may find offensive
This is a little example of the comical genius we've come to expect from the South Park boys. The music is ofcourse by them but the animation is homemade by someone with too much time on their hands....enjoy.... Read On
Bam and the boys are at it again...
The first feature-film directed by skateboarder/director/mischief-maker Bam Margera is fast becoming a cult classic. Being a huge fan of Bamâs work I grabbed myself a copy. For years Bam and gang have been releasing short films based loosely around Bamâs brotherâs band CKY, and usually feature excellent skateboarding, music and general bad behavior that was far to hot to show on MTVâs âJackassâ (another Bam Margera brainchild in conjunction with Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville)....

|American Splendor. DVD Review|
"Real life is pretty complex stuff"
American Splendor's (that's how American's spell splendour) superb opening sequence grabbed my full attention from the get go. The picture might be (much like its subject matter) not to everyone's taste. But enough elements came together for me to find it highly entertaining and thoroughly absorbing viewing.... Read On
