The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies - Official Main Trailer (Article) - 11/6/2014 1:03:27 PM

yay, no more running around in catacombs, tree branches, dungeons, caves, waterfalls, etc. not sure I like how they really douchebagged up the ol' green elf lord, or HGH'ed the orc commander (that one I can forgive I guess).

Good additions: Evangeline Lilly, love triangle with Legolas and the dwarf

Poor creative choices: 3 movies instead of 2, the buffooning and clumsification of Smaug, making the Mirkwood trek into a 15 minute mazefest, the barrel chase scene, the run around amok the Lonely Mountain (Tom and Jerry) scene... overall, making the movie less intelligent, catering to the ADHD minions

They have a chance to salvage it with this movie... I'm hoping. I really have not enjoyed these flicks anywhere near as much as LotR.

The Walking Dead: Slabtown Review (Article) - 11/4/2014 9:47:58 AM

I have no idea what his sexual preference is, and frankly, it is irrelevant to his behavior. He came off as arrogant, pompous, and overall absurd. Prior to his comments about the politics of the hospital when he was just gushing over Beth's acting on the rooftop, I was reminded he's an actor's actor. There's a Hollywood culture that most of the world doesn't know about. You witness it when you go to restaurants, clubs, etc where you see these buffoons in real life as they method act, sing out in public, and basically pine for the public attention even when not performing... in fact, they ARE always performing, always chasing for attention. Attention whores. And, they are FAKE. They've lost most of any semblance of individual self as they're constantly playing out as other people. Human psychology can't take it for long. Poor Heath Ledger succumbed to it. So have so many others. Unfortunately, they're infatuated with their own self worth, and it leads to being so damn condescending to others. Thanks for telling me his name because he's now the poster boy for that Hollywood fakeness. Ok, now I've gone and done what I shouldn't... poured on more attention when he should get none.

Not just polarizing, but downright condescending and ignorant. Might as well say Republicans are Nazis without the power.

The Walking Dead: Slabtown Review (Article) - 11/4/2014 7:54:33 AM

I'm usually a faithful WD fan who usually defends the show in the "slow" weeks because of good character development. However, I had several beefs with this episode. Yes, the show hinted that the group had traveled far north of Atlanta, and given this group has what... five or so vehicles, and there's never more than one out at a time given how difficult it must be to enter and leave the building, it just seems too implausible. Did they ever explain how their electricity was running still? The politics that runs this facility just seemed too ridiculous as well.

Btw, anyone else wanna shoot that actor from Talking Dead (The Arrow dude) who was posing just a little too much, especially when he got into politics and talking about Beth's back acting? Holy cow, I'm not sure I've ever been so blatantly immediately turned off by an individual in my life.

It just seemed like this must have been a comic storyline speedbump the writers wanted to include for the hell of it, but didn't take the time to figure how well it would really fit with the show. It doesn't. It sure as hell wasn't interesting enough to warrant an entire episode. Maybe interspersed with other stories. I thought watching Darryl and Carol chase down the cross car would have been much more interesting. And I like Beth! So far, this was my LEAST favorite episode from any of the seasons.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: A Fractured House Review (Article) - 10/30/2014 1:31:30 PM

I don't even watch this show, but I had to comment on TJ's last comment. Well damn said!

Doctor Strange is Benedict Cumberbatch! (Article) - 10/28/2014 10:09:03 AM

Like Wise, I'm just not an avid magic fan in any medium, be it comics or otherwise. There's just no parameter for it. There's always a spell or artifact, or hidden relic that can undo or beat another. So, all you need is some fancy vocabulary, and viola!, a nifty end of the arc way out of any dilemma.... oh wait, didn't Star Trek: TNG suffer from this same dilemma? Just wait for Giordi to discover a new way of manipulating the hydro-core fusion matrix utilizing nano-mites to boost the mega mighty warp vector times 9 for a .25 nanosecond to save the day. woohoo! wash, rinse, repeat for 9 seasons.

The Walking Dead: Four Walls and a Roof Review (Article) - 10/28/2014 9:59:53 AM

So, now starts the speculation about who Darryl was urging to come out of the brush. Carol? Beth? Both? Neither and someone new? Great cliffhanger. Looking forward to the next new drama. Sad to see Glenn and Maggie take off with the DC Fantasy Flight Fanatics, but it was obvious after the church massacre they weren't meant for this group for long. Will Glenn ever make the character journey that has made Rick such a badass?

Mania Box Office Report: Raging FURY (Article) - 10/20/2014 1:25:57 PM

I remember when the matrix came out that it came out of nowhere and was on nobody's radar until it just rocked everyone to the core. and here comes john wick which surprisingly is receiving very positive reviews. it's been a very entertaining fall season. and it only looks to get better.

The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Review (Article) - 10/16/2014 8:07:14 AM

@redhairs99 - That was xxspiderxx. He would get us all riled up on the Battlestar Gallactica threads posting the old version was better, and the new one was a perversion. After a while we all figured he was just a troll looking for attention, and not seriously debating the issue. Reminds me of a few others. I remember Cinescape started deleting his posts altogether, and put in some software that made it difficult to cut and paste dialog from other sites. I remember specifically how Hanso wanted to crucify that biyatch.
