Game of Thrones: The Lion and The Rose Review (Article) - 4/14/2014 7:20:53 AM

"Purple Wedding", that was funny.

Just when I was starting to think that the show has been taking too long to get the story moving, wham! No more Joffrey. That had to be one of the most intense and uncomfortable scenes I've ever watched.

Good stuff with Jamie too. I've really come to enjoy his character, probably my second favorite after Tyrion.

As I've not read the books, I have no idea where the Bran storyline is going, but for now it bores me. Luckily it was very short.

So, all-in-all, I agree that it was a strong episode. I can't wait to see the aftermath next week.

And now I can't get the scene out of my head with Hercules asking Iolaus, "Why are you purple?"

Game of Thrones: Two Swords Review (Article) - 4/7/2014 11:22:27 AM

I should have rewatched the series before Sunday. Sure is hard to keep up on everything.

Arrow: Deathstroke Review (Article) - 4/4/2014 5:01:44 AM

And also left out the fact that he told Laurel how Oliver spends his nights.

So, while the whole why Slade hates Oliver so much might have seemed flimsy, the fact that he has a Scorpius in his head might explain it somewhat.

And I'm hoping team Arrow is truly starting to shrink. It was starting to get a little crowded in that basement for my tastes.

The Spring of '84: Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (Article) - 4/1/2014 7:58:32 AM

Haven't seen it in a long time, and I've never read the books. I recall enjoying the scenes back in England as much as the jungle.

The Spring of '84: Romancing the Stone (Article) - 3/31/2014 7:54:45 AM

Haven't seen it in a long time, but I remember really enjoying the movie.

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/31/2014 5:27:03 AM

I really don't understand all the arguments here. (Actually I do, but that's beside the point.) From the research I have done in the past (which is limited I will point out), it's pretty much a given fact that a regional flood occurred as multiple traditions that predate the writing of Genesis agree on this.

Now, when Genesis talks about the flood covering the world, we can't take it too literally as the world was viewed as a much smaller place then. That is not an inconsistency, it is just a literary style.

I'm not going to sit here and attack anyone as that will accomplish nothing. I'll just say that I have no problem believing that a regional flood occurred at some point in the past and that the writer of Genesis was aware of those traditions and posited an allegory. I see nothing anti science or anti Christian in that view.

As far as the movie, I'm going to pass. Not because it takes liberties with the biblical narrative, but because I don't think I'll like it.

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/29/2014 4:58:36 AM

So, how about some comments about the actual movie? I'm a Christian, and I hear that God isn't even mentioned in it. So what? I really don't care, it's just a frigging movie. All I want to know is whether I will be entertained by it. Actually, Rob's review made me want to see it. But then I started to read that the movie is global warming propoganda; that turned me off. That would annoy me and ruin any potential entertainment value of mine.

So I'd like to know what some others thought about the movie.

Arrow: Birds of Prey Review (Article) - 3/27/2014 10:59:52 AM

I liked the episode. Yeah, the whole main plot line might have been weak, but I really don't remember what happed to the Huntress' father from last season. And yeah, the whole 'detective' Lance situation needs to be cleaned up.

For me, the rest of the episode made up for it. I really enjoyed the bit when Lance called the Arrow and Oliver's phone rang right next to him. I thought that was hilarious.

Arrow: Suicide Squad Review (Article) - 3/20/2014 12:39:06 PM

I don't know, I was kind of bored during the episode. Maybe I would have liked it more if I read the comics. It just didn't seem to go anywhere for me.

Good catch on Shrapnel. I didn't consider that. They probably all knew about the implant, so I highly doubt he would have run.

It seemed convienent that Laurel was at the bar at such opportune times. Sloppy writing.

This used to be my favorite show, but it's starting to lose some of my interest. I think there are just getting to be too many characters and too many know Oliver's alternate identity. Again, this might be how it is in the comics, I don't know. I still like the show, but I prefer season 1 to season 2.

The Spring of '84: Splash (Article) - 3/11/2014 12:39:14 PM

Good movie. I haven't seen it in a long time, but it would be worth another viewing.

He made some good movie, but to me Cocoon is way over rated.

I was one of the few (apparently) who saw Rush. I thought it was very good as did my wife and our friends.
