2011 Movies – The Final Push

Back in May I posted a list of the movies I wanted to see this year. So far I’ve seen 7 out of the 10 I was shooting for, plus caught up on 2 that I had missed once they came out on DVD. Not too bad. I’m pretty sure I’ve reviewed them all on… Read More »

Review: Green Lantern / Super 8 Double Feature!

My parents came out for the weekend, which means (among other things) free babysitting. That, in turn, means movies! My wife and I saw two movies in a row tonight: Green Lantern and Super 8. Expectations were split for these two. I’ve been looking forward to Super 8 since the first trailer (which, btw, showed… Read More »

Old movies, new reviews

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. If you’ve ever wondered how geeks converse about  movies (though I’m not sure why you would), Lee and Dan’s Midnight Movie Club is a good… Read More »

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – Review

I should have known. I made the mistake, and I paid for it (literally). I saw Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in the theater. One of the biggest wastes of my time I’ve ever spent money on. It taught me a valuable lesson, though: I learned that it actually is possible to be bored stiff… Read More »

SyFy shows reviews: SGU and Sanctuary

So here we have week 4 of Stargate Universe and week 3 of Sanctuary. As I mentioned last week, on SGU they’re heading for a close encounter with a star. It’s obvious to everyone but the characters that the ship is doing this on purpose to recharge its energy supply. So really this episode holds… Read More »

Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I haven’t read the books. In general I’ve tried to avoid reviews and other spoilers for the film (though I did get spoiled for the ultra-major event, annoyingly). I’ve heard a lot of people say this was the best Potter film yet. They lauded the admirable job condensing the plot from the book into a… Read More »

Three years of yammering on…

Three years ago today, at 11:48pm, I wrote these amazingly insightful words: Check it out… Friday, December 9th, 2005 Looks like I am officially blogging. I am too cool for words. (Ironic, isn’t it.) Thusly did this, my first blogging experience, begin. Pretty sad, really, but there you have it. Now here we are, three… 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 »

Review: Wall-E

As may be appropriate for a movie with few spoken lines, this review should be pretty short. Amazing technical achievement. The visuals here are phenomenal. There were times that I forgot I was watching an animated film. Simply brilliant. The story was pretty simple, which isn’t a knock. Sometimes the simple stories are the best.… Read More »

Review: Doctor Who 2008

Let’s get this out of the way: if you stare too closely at the details of a Russell Davies’ Doctor Who story, you might fall through a plot hole and end up in a paradox. Nobody wants to be stuck in a paradox, so just go with the intent of the story and ignore some… Read More »
