Goodbye Maniacs (Article) - 2/19/2015 2:50:21 PM

  Looks like the domain may be up for sale here...We're currently discussing it on Vic Holtreman's FB wall...... It could be Joblo up for sale as well. It's disheartening to see so many of our stomping grounds going (Corona, Cinescape, Joblo, Dark Horizons, etc) but

1. Oversaturation news blogging
2. Hollywood controlling the news leaks...
3. Smartphone Apps making News/Trailers at the tip of your fingers.
4. FB/Twitter destroying Forum communities

These types of cultural shifts change everything. Which movie news website is next I wonder...

 I totally understand the whole creating a different FB account for your Mania name as maybe some people get way too personal on their own individual FB walls (i.e only for family).

I'm pretty laid back on my own FB though....I have so much stress running my company that I don't engage in politics and religious debates...So if you find me occassionally sharing funny memes and only "liking" instead of talking all that much, don't be offended. I do get off a good vent every 3 or 4 weeks though. Those are always entertaining...

Almost...No message from you yet...I figured you were already a FB friend on my wall from years ago. When I retired from Mania in 2011, I tried to approve any and all of you whom found me at the time...

Anyone who wants to remain annoymous with new Mania-type FB personas, find me at Jarrod Sarafin.

I found ya rather quick, Monkey....Facebook is making this rather easy because they're putting all of the Maniacs in the "People you may know" category. That's how I found you, Millean, Calamity and Ben so quickly....

  So I'm driving down the freeway minding my own business when Starlight Guard, Kara Stern and Shelton Jacobs inform me that a website I've been coming to since early 1997 is possibly closing down. A website which I remember first being a fan of....long before I wrote columns like the Box Office Report for (and eventually Editor)....Like so many of you in the first 249 comments....I'm at a loss. I guess I should have expected something to happen eventually but actually seeing it happen is still painful to watch. And no amount of words can express otherwise...

Actually....

I blame you Hanso. This is all your fault somehow. Yes. YOU!

Nah, maybe it was my old partners in crime, Rob Worley or Rich Kuras. I blame them....

Or maybe nobody in particular....Whomever it is to blame, I wll always cherish the memories of my favorite genre home.

And I know we will always find a way to either keep this place going in spirit (as Tim is trying to do) or remain together elsewhere (on Facebook or elsewhere)....Finding me on Facebook is rather easy by the way....Much like Sir Worley and Mr. Kuras, just search for my name.

24: Live Another Day: 8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Review (Article) - 7/1/2014 9:19:10 PM

 This season has been absolutely amazing...Last week I was in awe of the nearly half hour of non-stop action culminating with Jack shoving a certain person out the window...This week was even better...with the ending leaving me speechless.  I'm sad there's only 2 episodes left...

 Babeee Ruth?

  Chop..He actually looked different when the movie came out. You know kids...they spring up a few inches and the baby fat disappears quickly. I remember an interview for the 20th anniversary where Cohen said people didn't recognize him when the movie premiered across the nation. They were looking to interview "Chunk" post release and all they got was a skinny kid instead.

Game of Thrones: The Lion and The Rose Review (Article) - 4/14/2014 8:22:59 AM

  It can be maddening at times, Violator...and not just here. Some of us read the Red Wedding nearly 14 years ago. Minus 1 person I know, my friends and family haven't read the books and they know I had read Storm of Swords a very long time ago...Keeping them in the surprise for the Red and Purple Weddings became rather difficult at times... But watching their reactions was also priceless...

DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 4/4/2014 3:23:59 PM

 Oh for WTF's Sake....Mr. Bob Trate...you're making me laugh my balls off with those Game of Thrones Flashback Opening Credits on the homepage this week. How many are there? Bravo, sir...Bravo..

 

The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 4/3/2014 4:18:54 PM

 True, mtaffer. I totally agree that in a world 500 days after Z-Day, people are acting under a survival instinct that doesn't include morality for the most part. But it would be nice to see some fellow humanity every once in a while...And it does happen with our group of survivors. We get the "Red Shirts" every season just for them to turn into zombie fodder..Example: The 'nice' people who survived the Woodbury incident would go on to live in the Prison and fade in/out of Rick's group. So it does happen....

Just would be nice to see it happen more often. After reading some interviews from Scott Gimple these last 2 days, it would seem I may get what I'm hoping. Everytime his interviewer or fans talk to him as if Gareth's group are a bunch of cannibals, he keeps going back to the "Don't be so sure about that'...

We can certainly agree that Gareth may not be nicest guy in the group by how they handled our favorite characters but it may not translate to them being cannibals...Those "cattle herding" rooms may be for show. 

Either way, they screwed with the wrong rabbits.
