Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Uprising Revealed (Article) - 4/7/2014 6:21:51 PM

P.S. Captain America 2 was the ABSOLUTE HEAT. I couldn't have asked for a better sequel or a better film. I think it made IM3 look like a half-assed effort, and even outclassed Thor: Dark World by a good stretch.

Okay, for those still here, here's my thoughts on how it ties together:

> The Clairvoyant is Arnim Zola, using his digital persona/consciousness and the "prediction algorithm" that he talked about in CA: Winter Soldier to pull off all the stuff he's been doing on MAoS. It explains the "psychic" abilities and predictive abilities of the Clairvoyant and also why he couldn't see what was done to Coulson to resurrect him (because Zola's consciousness had no access to the Guest House).

> A.I.M. and Cybertek are going to be revealed as also having been infiltrated (or being straight up run) by HYDRA.

> The betrayal and loss of Agent Sitwell is going to be one of the "big betrayals" that they keep mentioning on the ads for MAoS. In both the show and in the One-Shot "The Consultant" it really looked like Coulson and Sitwell had a friendship or at least a long-standing working relationship.

> I'm hoping to see cameos either end of this season or sometime next season by Toby Jones (Zola) and/or Thomas Kretschmann (Baron Strucker). I somewhat expect to see Kretschmann show up if Dracula is cancelled over at NBC, as his schedule will be suddenly free next season.

Whatever happens from here on out, I'm completely excited to see whatever it is.  My faith in Marvel and in Agents of SHIELD has been completely renewed, and I'm all in til death or cancellation.

 

The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 4/1/2014 6:00:35 PM

A .  The whole episode was terrifying, horrifying, and awesome, in equal parts and at different times.  The final scene of everyone reunited and ready to issue a world-class curb-stomping to the cannibals of Terminus will resonate with me until the Fall.

 CAPTAIN AMERICA FTW!!  Marvel is about to own.

That is all.  You may continue going about your lives now.

 

 

The Spring of '84: Romancing the Stone (Article) - 3/31/2014 8:53:39 AM

LOVE this movie!  Even as a kid, though, I wished that Danny Devito wasn't in it or was in it less.  His bumbling thief/comic relief part really took me out of the film at points, and that annoyed me.  I would've preferred a little less idiot-humor in the film.  But overall, I loved and still love this film.

Solid review, btw!  You really understood why the film is so classic.

 

 

The Spring of '84: Police Academy (Article) - 3/29/2014 10:30:17 AM

 Rob, you need to take your Xanex before reviewing a movie like this.  "[F]ucking barbarians"?  Really?  That was 30 years ago.  A lot has happened since then.  And these films were never intended to be viewed under a microscope 30 years later... they weren't even intended to be viewed under a microscope in 1984!  At best they were meant to be viewed through beer goggles in 1984, as you relaxed in your parachute pants and drank a Bartles & James wine cooler.

Or as a fourth grader sneaking an R-rated film on HBO when your parents left you with a teenage babysitter with the I.Q. of a cabbage and the attention span of a squirrel on meth.  :D

I loved this film then, and I loved it when I saw it again a few years ago.  Yes, the jokes are dated and not even REMOTELY politically correct.  Yes, the Blue Oyster bar is less funny since my sister came out of the closet and Americans (those not addicted to Fox News, at least) became far more aware of and attentive to the interests of the LGBT community.  But it's still funny for being ridiculous, not for being a riff on gays.

 

 

 

 

The Purge: Anarchy Official Trailer #2 (Article) - 3/29/2014 10:21:01 AM

 This just looks dumb.  The entire premise is ridiculous.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 - Itchy Armpit Clip (Article) - 3/29/2014 10:20:29 AM

 Can't wait for this.

 

Arrow: Birds of Prey Review (Article) - 3/28/2014 6:09:42 PM

Yeah, this review was spot on, as was the grade.  This episode smacked of the shoddy writing and horrible forethought that we were force-fed on a weekly basis by Smallville.  Please let's not let this be the new standard for this show.

Arrow: Suicide Squad Review (Article) - 3/20/2014 1:53:22 PM

Oh, as for the implant, Deadshot makes a comment that he knew about it, so why didn't Shrapnel?  This was sloppy writing IMHO.
