GAME OF THRONES: Kissed by Fire Review (Article) - 4/30/2013 6:04:56 AM

It was already explained in the show where The Hound's fear of fire stems from. Littlefinger explained it to Sansa in season 1, during the tournee to honor the new Hand of the King, her father. It was then showcased in effect during the Battle of the Blackwater near the end of the second season, when the Hound flees from burning soliders and leads to his deserting his post and ultimately leaving King's Landing behind. So by this latest episode, viewers should already be well aware of Sandor Clegane's crippling phobia of fire. The fact that he powers through it and still defeats Beric is a huge point not to be overlooked.

Revolution: The Song Remains the Same Review (Article) - 4/10/2013 5:25:26 AM

It would be cool if these electricity absorbing nanobots would discharge the electricity they soak up in pretty spectacular lightning storms across the planet, making this future world very hazardous to those people still living. My theory is that the amulets don't nullify the nanobots, but switch them from absorbing electricty to "broadcasting" it. Although, the physics behind all this is nonsense, of course. But I get the feeling this is the way they're leaning on this show.

Spartacus: War of the Damned Episode 5 (Article) - 3/4/2013 5:59:38 AM

The most sickening thing this episode was what Marcus Crassus' son did to his father's mistress. Wasn't she almost like a mother to him? I understand why he would want to hurt his father, but that scene was quite Oedipal and out of nowhere. Very jarring.

Mania Review: Stoker (Article) - 3/1/2013 7:00:14 AM

Great! Now, can we get a grade for this review?

Continuum: The Politics of Time (Article) - 2/27/2013 5:25:16 AM

This episode reminded me of the PS3 game, Heavy Rain. The tech and investigative procedures Kiera uses reminds me of Agent Norman Jayden's "ARI" device, the music was suprisingly similar to that used during certain scenes in the game, and of course since this was filmed in Vancouver ... there were copious amounts of rain in practically every scene!

This was a very good episode. Even I didn't see the end coming (I thought the killer was the assistant), and the reveal about Kiera's husband was a shocking surprise. Sometimes this show goes places I would never expect from a SyFy show. Very interested in seeing how the remainder of the season plays out.

Continuum: Times Up Review (Article) - 2/21/2013 6:02:24 AM

JDK008, I would imagine this has to do with the show originally airing in Canada and having different timing when it comes to commercial breaks, if any. So for the US airing they probably have to work the breaks in suddenly in-between scenes that were not originally intended for them. I did notice this, too.

Spartacus: War of the Damned: Men of Honor Review (Article) - 2/11/2013 6:46:44 AM

Naevia is super hot!!! Although, not as hot as the previous actress playing her.

This episode did not sit well with me. But this might be because I know what happens next, historically. The pirates showing up just put a hard rock in the pit of my stomach, because I'm anxious now about what will eventually happen next.

Continuum: Matter of Time Review (Article) - 2/5/2013 6:11:54 AM

I was just about to call it quits with this episode. I felt I gave this show enough of a chance, and that this 4th episode would make or break it for me. But, finally, I do see a glimmer of hope here. You're right, the Kagame flashback went a long way toward making us see Liber8's side of things, and to maybe even begin to sympathize with the group. This sort of gray, complex layering is what we really needed. I'm still not sold on Kiera as a badass future cop. She's still too weepy at times, and at other times supsiciously cheerful. Can't quite get a good peg on her character yet, which seems to be more a fault of the writing for her character and not so much of the actress.

Still, I'm going to give this show an extended chance now. Maybe 2 more episodes to really prove its worth.

Eva Green For Sin City Sequel (Article) - 1/30/2013 5:59:10 AM

Hmmm, so they replaced Devon Aoki with Jamie Chung to play "Miho" this time? Ugh, I'm so sick of seeing Jamie Chung's face everywhere.

I loved the first Sin City, though, and Eva Green was awesome in Kingdom of Heaven, Casino Royale, and was the only reason I tuned in to watch Camelot. So this I'm excited for!

After Earth Trailer (Article) - 12/11/2012 6:19:19 AM

I'm pretty sure Will Smith dies early on, and that he's really a holographic projection with AI and intuitive responses pre-recorded to help his son overcome fear and become a man in the event of his death. At least, that's what this teaser is showing me. I could be wrong. Certain scenes, like the one of Will Smith walking out in the open with the spear-type weapon in his hand might prove me wrong. Then again, they might not.
