Mania Review: Sharknado 2 (Article) - 8/1/2014 1:13:41 AM

Like Newdude, I got together with friends and had a Sharknado party.  One of my friends wore adult-sized shark footie pajamas.  Yes, this is a horrible movie.  But it is supposed to be a horrible movie.  Our conversations were based on who will die next, how they will die, and what rediculous shark act or cheesy line will be uttered.  

Did anyone notice the character names of Mark McGrath and Kari Wuhrer? Noticed the homage to Jaws when I was looking at IMDB

 

 

 

 

 

 

GAME OF THRONES: OATHKEEPER Review (Article) - 4/29/2014 12:10:34 AM

I liked this episode.  Watching the characters continue to grow, often in some unanticipated ways.  Jaime's conversation with Tyrion, learning of Littlefinger/Olenna plot was exciting.  And Littlefinger is SOOOO creepy, I feel really badly for Sansa.  No, there was not any "action" in this episode, but there certainly was intrigue.  

 

Discussion about Books v TV
In a TV show based on a series of books it is impossiblt to not have some mention of and comparison to the books.  If there was a discussion of the books I am sure there would be mention of and comparison to the TV show.  

I actually stopped reading the books because I thought they were ruining the show.  Yes, the books are fantastic.  But I felt thuroughly cheated when I watched the Red Wedding.  I knew it was comming.  No surprise. no fun.  I will go back and read the books after the show is over and pick up on the details the show missed.  

 

 

 

ZOMBEAVERS - Official Trailer (Article) - 2/10/2014 10:33:59 AM

NICE!!!  As a graduate of Oregon State University (the BEAVERS), I think this will be required viewing.

 

Game Of Thrones: Mhysa Preview (Article) - 6/4/2013 12:38:46 AM

Amazing episode!! loved it. The producers of the show have done a fantastic job turning a spectacular book series into a wonderful TV series. Two general points to make:
1) I am reading the books and am just a bit ahead of the series. I am considering stopping. I am self-spoilering so that the shock in the show are not having impact on me I feel they should have.
2) I am convinced that by the time George R.R. Martin finishes the books he will have killed everybody off from the first book. He just likes making us suffer.

 

Mania Review: Star Trek: Into Darkness (Article) - 5/18/2013 11:58:44 AM

 I saw it last night.  great movie!!!! so much to talk about and discuss. but so much of the movie is based on the reveal, I will not say anything. I had a blast. Definitely had a similar feel to Trek 09...while paying homage to classic trek.

I will probably see it again this weekend. but I am a pretty hard core Trekkie, too :)

go see it and enjoy!!!

Avengers 2 Casting Problems (Article) - 5/8/2013 11:25:25 AM

 Both the studio and the actors make exorbitant amounts of money...you would think a little moderation and common sense could make the deals happen.  They (studio and actors) are going to greed themselves out of the opportinity to make more multi-star movies.

oh well.   I am not going to cry about someone getting "screwed" out of a multi-million dollar deal...they will still be making lots of money...

ENDERS GAME: Teaser Trailer Announcement (Article) - 5/3/2013 10:32:01 AM

Spartacus War of the Damned: The Dead and the Dying Review (Article) - 4/10/2013 2:01:57 PM

Malkovich for Blackbeard in Crossbones (Article) - 3/12/2013 4:25:21 PM

 If the show is any good...NBC will cancel it after 3 episodes :/

Spartacus: War of the Damned: Wolves at the Gate Review (Article) - 2/4/2013 9:15:05 PM

 The interesting thing about historical fiction is you know how it ends (Inglorious Basterds excluded). Spartacus, Crassus and Caesar are all big names in the history of Rome.

but I am really enjoying the way this is playing out.
