I talked about this one before, but I had to mention that I just watched a Mythbusters episode on the Discovery Channel that confirmed that impairment is at least asImpairment while driving on phone > drunk driving

Well... "reviews" might be pushing the definition of the word. It's more like a couple of self-proclaimed geeks talking about the movie, which, as it turns out, is kinda fun. IfOld movies, new reviews

The Last Airbender's current ranking on RottenTomatoes.com? 6% Six percent. In other words, atrocious. Worse than 94% of all movies rated. Horrible. A steaming pile of excrement. Your mother would slapReview: The Last Airbender

Horrible music is really pretty good

One of the things that surprised me most about Dr. Horrible was the quality of the music. I knew Joss Whedon had written a musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer that got great fan reaction, but I’ve never seen it, so I didn’t know how good he and his brother were with music.

These two songs, the finale of act 1 and the start of act 2, are easily my favorites (though I love . . . → Read More: Horrible music is really pretty good

Superman Returns, but not as expected

Warner will follow Marvel model to develop new superhero films : Slice of SciFi

Superman Returns darker

Ever since Superman Returns was released, rumors were flying about the sequel. Would it happen? Would Bryan Singer return to helm it? Would anybody watch it?

Not long ago (May 7th, in fact), we were hearing that Bryan Singer would be getting Superman: The Man of Steel to theaters in 2009 with wall-to-wall action in a sequel . . . → Read More: Superman Returns, but not as expected

New series – Stargate: Voyager… uh, I mean Universe

SciFi opens a new Stargate : Slice of SciFi

As I mentioned in my last post, Stargate: Atlantis has been cancelled and will be wrapped up in a 2-hour movie. I also referred to a third potential Stargate series. That’s now been confirmed, and the title is Stargate: Universe.

The plot:

“Universe” introduces a team of explorers who find an ancient unmanned ship called the Destiny. Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend . . . → Read More: New series – Stargate: Voyager… uh, I mean Universe

Stargate to die a slow, painful death

GateWorld – SCI FI confirms Atlantis cancellation, TV movie

Stargate: Atlantis has been cancelled. The show will run through its 100th episode in January 2009 and end on a cliffhanger, which will be resolved by a 2-hour movie.

So basically, this is the new way the studios want to handle their successful franchises – run the series for a while, then make a few DVDs. I suppose I can’t blame them. The formula worked for . . . → Read More: Stargate to die a slow, painful death

New theme

I thought I’d give the site a new look, so I went searching for a new theme. I’m not entirely sold on this one yet, but I’m giving it a shot. There are some tweaks I definitely want to make, but it seems like a pretty decent theme. I’ve made a couple changes already.

If anyone has any thoughts they want to share, I’m all ears.

Review: Stargate: Continuum

Everybody dies. Some of them more than once.

Usually, that kind of statement is either a joke or a major spoiler, but then, this is a time travel movie, so I really haven’t told you anything of any importance. Or have I? In a time travel movie, it’s all about when you die that matters.

Stargate: Continuum is a fun return to the lives of the SG-1 team. There were two main story threads left . . . → Read More: Review: Stargate: Continuum

C.S. Lewis on living by hope

Last week I started doing something I hardly ever do – I started reading a non-fiction book. Even more amazingly, it’s an auto-biography. That’s a genre I almost never delve into. In fact, I can’t even remember the last non-fiction book I read cover to cover. It’s not even a recent book. I ran across it literally by providence, and decided to bring it home.
