The Strain: The Master Review (Article) - 10/7/2014 4:05:37 PM

For me, the main failing of the episode was the direction. It failed to bring any kind of drama, the action was filmed really shoddily, it just generally didn't impress me. The design of the master is terrible as well, not terrifying at all. I've been enjoying it somewhat, but I expected a lot more from Del Toro.

The 'Burbs Steelbook Blu-ray Review (Article) - 9/17/2014 1:16:31 AM

I love The 'Burbs. It's one of those family scare fests that the 80's seemed to turn out by the bucket load and were usually done really well, usually by Joe Dante! I would love to see more of those style of movies again. Fun and scary.

The Strain: Creatures of the Night Review (Article) - 9/3/2014 9:28:48 PM

I am enjoying this series quite a lot, with a few caveats. @rkngl I completely agree, Nora has been ridiculously backward in the circumstances. Walking dead also suffers from "stupid woman" syndrome, and I know my wife would kick all their backsides if she was in the same situations.  Lets get some pragmatic ladies on these series. Mind you, Eff hasn't been exactly jumping in with both feet. Vasiliy has been my favourite so far, he is getting the job done.

I found this week's episode very coincidental. All the main characters (the CDC Abraham, Hacker girl and rat catcher) turn up together in one episode? I could buy them meeting up one by one, over a few eps, but this is a bit much. I haven't found it dawdling so much, in fact I've been surprised how quickly the vamps are mutliplying, but I have been surprised at the lack of media attention. After the attack at the hospice I would have thought the TV would have been all over the 'riot' or outbreaks of violence. I know the net and phones are down, but people still have radio and TV...

The Summer of '84: The Philadelphia Experiment (Article) - 8/5/2014 12:47:31 AM

I liked the counter film to this when I saw it as a kid, The Final Countdown. A modern aircraft carrier is slung back in time to the eve of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, and the navy men have to decide what they're going to do, use the superior firepower of modern weapons and supersonic jets to defeat the attack and hopefully save hundreds of thousands of lives, but possibly change the future for the worse, or let things play out knowing that the Axis will definitely be defeated if they change nothing.

Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper Review (Article) - 6/4/2014 5:44:11 AM

I agree, considering how short a time he was with us, Oberyn quickly became a favourite, and that is a compliment both to the writers and the actor, he should surely get a lot more work off the back of this! 

PENNY DREADFUL: Demimonde Review (Article) - 6/4/2014 5:41:00 AM

Yeah Blank, I've been enjoying it's difference too. With this and Hannibal it feels like TV is stretching beyond just simple procedurals and edging into much more gothic territory. Good stuff.

I think you're friend is going to have to get used to more all male loves scenes, I don't think they're going away anytime soon...

I think Chandler might be a were too, only that seems too obvious a way to have all 3 monsters in the programme. The actors are uniformly good, Rory's dad would be proud! 

Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper Review (Article) - 6/2/2014 11:55:55 PM

That was an image I wasn't sure I'd be able to go to sleep with! I was expecting him to die, but then as the fight wore on and he was winning, the darn program makers got my hopes up. Darn you all to hell! I kept yelling at him to finish the Mountain and not to faff about, but would he listen? 

And Sansa has finally got slinky and started to get into the game... This could be interesting...

Arya made me laugh so hard. Awesome scene.

I have a suspicion about Jorah, that he's volunteered to be a spy for Danny, admitting to his guilt so he has a good reason to return to Kingslanding...

Hannibal: Takiawase Review (Article) - 3/24/2014 6:37:54 PM

I loved the look on Will's face when he figured out what hannibal had been doing with his trophies, and where his meat for his equisite meals had come from! Priceless. Still, you'd think they'd have Beverly be a bit more circumspect when she started taking Will more seriously and actually searching Hannibal's house. I mean, tell SOMEONE! Still, they couldn't stretch it out if she'd let the FBI know...

The Walking Dead: The Grove Review (Article) - 3/17/2014 7:00:14 PM

Really a phenomenal episode, I think possibly the best this season with the heavy emotions involved in it. The prison stand off had too many questionable acts in it for me, but this episode was just amazing.

The Shadow Collectors Edition Blu-ray Review (Article) - 3/10/2014 10:43:26 PM

I always enjoyed the triptych of The Rocketeer, the Shadow and The Phantom. Cheesy but fun pulp heroes. if only they'd made a team up picture of all three, they could have easily played in the same universe.
