Review: The Dark Knight Rises (no spoilers)

I’m late for leaving on a trip, so this will be quick. The Dark Knight Rises is a completely worthy capstone to the Nolan/Bale Batman trilogy. It turns the trilogy into a cohesive whole, and never feels awkward while doing it. It is long, like the second entry in the series, but even though I… Read More »

7 movies my mother has to worry about (and a bunch more)

2012 has an impressive line-up of films. Time travel, mutation, gods, monsters, hobbits, technology, and sheer awesomeness all combine to create an almost inescapable desire to just set up an automatic withdrawal from my checking account to my local movie theater. Almost. As usual, but even more so this year, money is tight. Hard choices… Read More »

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… Read More »

Firefly is back, Singing Batman, and Cyborg Rats

Seriously, where else are you going to get a combination like that? I’ve got three video clips for you today, and one of them is not fiction. See if you can figure out which one. Firefly is back! That’s right, Nathan Fillion has suited up one more time as Mal Reynolds. Unfortunately, it’s only a… Read More »

Review: Green Lantern: First Flight

With characters that have as huge of an existing storyline as Green Lantern, it’d be easy for a movie like Green Lantern: First Flight to get lost in trying to add in all the cool stuff and cameos that could be covered. That isn’t the case here. This is a lean movie. At 70 minutes,… Read More »

Pseudo-Review: The Dark Knight

I don’t have it in me to write everything I think about this movie right now, but I wanted to get something down. Just like Spider-man 2, this sequel takes an amazingly good predecessor and improves on it. And just like in the Spider-man franchise, the key is focusing on the character’s development. Bruce/Batman learns… Read More »

But I wanted to quickly throw a few things out there in Sci-Fi and Entertainment news. Hobbit films (report stolen from Slice of Sci-Fi): Director Guillermo del Toro told reporters during a Hellboy… Read More »
