Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – Live!

First off, a disclosure.  I have never seen the original online Dr. Horrible starring my beloved Neil Patrick Harris (NPH), Nathan Fillion (NF) and Felicia Day (FD).  It’s true.  As much as I heart Joss Whedon, I have never been big on watching TV online and, to be honest, I’m lucky to have time to… Continue reading Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – Live!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 – the End of an Era

Yes, I cried. Quite a bit at one point. And while the scenes were touching and poignant and emotional and all that good stuff, a large part of it was a sense of mourning that this was it.  No more books and now, no more movies either.  The posters and billboards plastered everywhere are clear:… Continue reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 – the End of an Era

The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!

Ugh.  I’m home sick today.  No bueno. I took the day off from work and was going to take the day off from blogging (especially since no nerdy movies came out this past weekend) but after catching up on Falling Skies and being asked my thoughts about it…well…it seems I just can’t quit you.  Not… Continue reading The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!

Super 8 + DBox = DBest movie experience ever

Alien movies are pretty much universally awesome.  Even the bad ones have something going for them in the form of a grotesque, salivating creature bent on devouring some random buxom blond.  Most of the time though, alien movies are just kick ass.  When making an alien movie, you have two choices.  Make the alien friendly… Continue reading Super 8 + DBox = DBest movie experience ever

I saw The Green Lantern on the brightest screen, in the blackest theatre

After a weekend hiatus from writing movie reviews to visit Kirk’s birthplace (oh and go to my cousins wedding), I’m back on the horse with one of the summers most anticipated comic book movies The Green Lantern. (Side note: if you were hoping I’d review Super 8 this past Monday, have no fear.  I’m planning to see it at some… Continue reading I saw The Green Lantern on the brightest screen, in the blackest theatre

X-Men: First Class – you got it wrong but I heart you anyways

Oh Lordy do I love me some X-Men.  After Thor, it is probably my favorite comic book series.  No offense to Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, etc.  I adore you all but I had a particular hard on for X-Men growing up. So I’ll admit it.  When I first heard that there was going to be an… Continue reading X-Men: First Class – you got it wrong but I heart you anyways

Pirates of the Caribbean: it just gets stranger and stranger

I know a lot of people who don’t really care for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as a whole. They thought the first one was fun and the 2nd and 3rd ones were convoluted pieces of crap. Therefore, I had a hard time finding someone who would see #4 with me. Luckily I have… Continue reading Pirates of the Caribbean: it just gets stranger and stranger

I prayed that Priest would be good…

It wasn’t. Wow. What a great way to kick off a review. More detail you ask? Well here ya go… To give you a little background, yes, Priest is most certainly a graphic novel adaption as so many sci-fi/fantasy films seem to be these days. It’s set in a world where apparently man and vampire have… Continue reading I prayed that Priest would be good…

25 Take Aways: A Battlestar Galactica Wrap Up

A while back I admitted to being a late bloomer to the greatness that is Battlestar Galactica…cause seriously, I’m waaaaaay too busy to watch every single TV show that comes out, nerdy or not.  Aside from developing an unhealthy addiction to speed in order to eek a few more hours out of my day, my… Continue reading 25 Take Aways: A Battlestar Galactica Wrap Up
