Review: Thor

Thor.

So… Thor.

Let me tell you… my back was so Thor after I spent all that time sitting in the theater.

Thank you! Tip your waiters!

Okay, seriously. I saw Thor tonight. And it scared me.

No, it’s not a scary movie. I’m not sure I even jumped once, except in excitement at how cool what was going on looked. There was a lot of work put into the visuals of this film. A . . . → Read More: Review: Thor

Tweet

I got up this morning and read an email that referred to a comment made on Twitter… that’s a Tweet, for those who’ve been under a technological rock for the past few years.

I don’t really know why I did it, but I went out and created a Twitter account (@caddickisms, if you’re curious). I’m now “following” a couple of people and a few celebrities. I’ve already unfollowed one of them. I’ve created a list . . . → Read More: Tweet

Revisitation and new worlds

I’m going to revisit a couple of topics discussed here recently and then we’ll hit some new topics.

Well, after my last post I finished watching The Event. I stick with what I said about it, except for this: they did finally manage to make the title relevant, and they alluded to more about the “protectors” that showed they really did have some kind of plan. I like that they had been here before (guess . . . → Read More: Revisitation and new worlds

Super-Review: Cancelled shows

Lots of series finales showed up this year. Some of them were only supposed to be season finales, but the shows were cancelled. Most of the time, they didn’t know they were being cancelled when the finale was filmed, which leaves us fans in a bit of a pickle, dealing with completely open-ended stories – and even full-on cliffhangers. But this is where we find ourselves, and there’s nothing to be done about it except . . . → Read More: Super-Review: Cancelled shows

2011 Movies to Drool Over

I’m a bit behind in putting up my movie list for this year.

Last year’s list was full of promise, but I only got to see 4 of the 21 listed films in the theater. I’ve since brought the total up to 11 with the help of DVDs. I hope to catch the 12th (Voyage of the Dawn Treader) on DVD next week. I’m still annoyed that I missed that one.

We’re back, and better than ever in “We’re back, and better than ever!”

I know you didn’t notice, but I did. This site was down for about 20 hours due to a glitch that showed I had overspent my bandwidth allocation. I hadn’t, but that didn’t stop them from taking my site down.

Anyway… we’re back now.

And we are, in fact, better than ever! I’ve joined the mere thousands upon thousands of sites listed on iTunes!

TIDBABSH 2: Part 2: Return of The Australian

If you thought he was gone, you weren’t paying attention.

He’s back! He’s opinionated! He’s Australian! He’s spent more time thinking about pop culture than is probably healthy!

And that last bit actually pays off in this, the second half of our conversation, as Lee Sargent and I concentrate on pop culture and movie/TV news and rumors, including a run down of why Wonder Woman’s shorts are annoying, which Pixar films shouldn’t get sequels (but . . . → Read More: TIDBABSH 2: Part 2: Return of The Australian
