Slam Dunk Amazing Spider-Man Clip (Article) - 6/13/2012 6:16:03 AM

Looks incredibly lame.  First off, why do the writers think having Peter Parker showing off amazing skills while he's trying to keep a secret identity is a good thing?  Secondly, if they're going to have him dunk a basketball, that's the best shot they have of him doing it?  Not encouraging.

Walking Dead: Beside the Dying Fire Review (Article) - 3/20/2012 11:24:33 AM

8)  Forgot to add that I agree with the commentator from above that Michonne was much too far away to have struck the zombie.  Additionally, she supposedly swung her katanna with only one hand and with a shoulder-width stance, not stepping into it.  Sorry, that's just plain lazy writing.

Walking Dead: Beside the Dying Fire Review (Article) - 3/20/2012 11:20:08 AM

1)  The zombies were not eating Rick's (or anyone else's) horse in the beginning of the episode - it's a dog.  Hence, we have no idea when the zombies began to venture out of Atlanta.

2)  Dr. Jenner told the group that it takes about 2 hours to re-aninmate after death.  So it makes sense that after Rick killed Shane, he was by the body for a few hours before Carl found them.  That gives the zombies 2 hours to head towards the shots, and thus not be in the woods when everyone was walking around the woods.

3)  Biggest error I saw was that it was established the zombies were coming out of the woods behind Rick and Carl.  Then it should have been easy for them to run to the house.  But when they start to move away, they notice that the zombies have already moved out of the woods ahead of them, and blocked their way to not only the home, but also the barn.  Lazy writing.

4)  Lighters cannot light gasoline.  Not hot enough.  Would be nice if that movie/t.v. trope were retired.

5)  Get rid of ninja zombies on the show - where did the one that grabbed Patricia come from?  They were out in the open.  And if they did see nearby zombies, why weren't they running?  Nice nod to a recent zombie kill in the comic book, though.

6)  Hopefully the writers will be reading all of the criticism of Lori's reaction to Shane's death and flesh it out in the first episode next season to make it more rational why she acted that way.

7)  Unless the actor who plays Carl stops aging, how much longer can he be on the show?  Going to age rapidly, particularly with 7 months in between seasons.  Perhaps they'll just ignore it.

Good season.  Look forward to more.

The Walking Dead: Judge, Jury, Executioner Review (Article) - 3/5/2012 1:50:19 PM

Forgot one huge bitch about last night - like in Buffy, where every time someone got turned into a vampire they also acquired Matrix-like Kung Fu moves, it seems that the zombies here all acquire ninja stealth techniques.  How in the Hell does Dale walk up to a partially eaten cow, turn around and face the direction he just came from, and see a zombie standing right there.  Very, very lazy writing.  Also, why would the zombie leave a partially devoured cow to attack something else?  It's already got its meal.  Could have easily had Dale happen upon the zombie (or perhaps more than one zombie), turn around to run and trip.  Much more believable.

invisioner - Kirkman has already said that if he had known the comic book would last this long, he'd have kept Shane around a lot longer.

ddiaz28 & Johnnyathm1 - good points about Daryl just not giving a rip; missed that for some reason.

Last 2 episodes should be great to watch, and it'll be fun to see who else gets it besides Shane.

The Walking Dead: Judge, Jury, Executioner Review (Article) - 3/5/2012 12:42:16 PM

You guys are all missing the boat about why Dale was killed off - it's fallout from Darabont's firing.  Remember when Darabont was first fired, there were stories about how cast members were in an uproar and ordered to shut up.  Further stories came out that at least one long-time Darabont associate was so upset he wanted out.  We can now confirm that was DeMunn.

Something like this is probably why Sophia ended up being killed off.  In the comics, it's obviously easy to keep kids around, in the background, and not have to worry too much about them.  But in tv/movies, these are actors/actresses who get paid a lot of money, even for menial roles.  While Carl has a storyline, there wasn't one for Sophia.  As stated by others, following this logic, what the Hell is T-Bone still doing around here?  Serves absolutely no purpose.

Regarding Randall, it's apparent that he's hiding his true nature.  I don't see him as a Linus-type, only because Linus was the leader, and I think it's apparent he's not.  Surprised they didn't have a scene with Maggie asking him questions to see if it was true that he went to school with her. 

One revelation that hasn't been discussed is how Daryl knew that Shane killed Otis, and he is absolutely fine with that.  Interesting development.  I wish they had explored this before offing Dale.  In the comics, remember that (spoiler) Rick kills another human when that person became a threat.

Walking Dead: Pretty Much Dead Already Review (Article) - 12/5/2011 6:16:12 PM

Joe - The WWZ book setting is 10 years after the zombie apocalypse, as the world tries to get back on its feet.  The protagonist is assigned by the U.N. to travel the world to see determine the origins of the outbreak, how it spread, and how the outbreak was dealt with.  Extremely entertaining.  As I understand the movie, the setting is as the outbreak is occurring.  It is thus difficult to conceive how they could tell a lot of the great stories when the focus is on one person, who can obviously only be in one place at at time.  Additionally, from leaked/released production video, the zombies appear to be of the fast kind, as opposed to the "walkers" of Romero/Kirkman fashion, another huge disappointment.  It also appears as though the infection spreads as quickly as the virus in 28 Days Later.

Suffice to say, it's appears to be one of those movies that is using the name of a well-known story, but completely re-working it.  Think "I Am Legend" or "John Carpenter's Vampires" (my personal pet peeve).  This is truly a project meant for an HBO-style mini-series, not a 2 hour movie.

Sexy Skeletor is a rip off the old Burt Reynolds Cosmo centerfold.

You guys are missing the boat.  The reason why the characters in these movies (Spider-Man, Captain America, etc.) have their masks off is in order to show the actor's faces.  Whether that's because of the ego of the actors involved, their agents or publicists, whomever, it's a vanity issue.

TremorDeth:  These are the good old slumbering Romero zombies.

spiderhero:  I don't know if having Straczynski involved is great, based upon a review of an earlier draft of the script.  Left out a few really good concepts/stories from the book.  Also, the overarching plot of the book is that the government is trying to cover up how they came to overcome the zombie apocalypse (which involved sacrificing humans), whereas in the script I read it involved covering up the military screwing up the Battle at Yonkers (which is really ridiculous; not too hard to figure out you screwed up by not having thousands of snipers bunkered in high-rise buildings).

InnerSanctum:  These zombies are zombies, not infected humans.
