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 here after seeing them.

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.

I had initially been looking forward to Green Lantern since it was first announced, . . . → Read More: Review: Green Lantern / Super 8 Double Feature!

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
