Doctor Who: The Power of Three Review (Article) - 9/26/2012 6:53:31 AM

The tone of this article almost seems to suggest that we're dreading the departure of Amy and Rory. But I for one can't wait! I think these current companions have more than worn out their welcome. Especially Amy Pond, who I went from absolutely adoring at the beginning to now outright despising. Personally, I think last season's finale should have been the last of the "Ponds" we saw, and that these 5 episodes has been 5 episodes too many to be subjected to that pair.

Also, I'm practically salivating at the thought of the gorgeous Jenna-Louise Coleman (who we just saw as Oswin in "Asylum of the Daleks") taking over as the new companion. When I learned this news at the start of the season, it made me wish Amy and Rory would leave that much sooner. Jenna-Louise has so much personality and wonderful chemistry with Matt Smith, that I predict nothing but great things to come.

So count me in as looking very much forward to a changing of the guard soon. Good riddance!

Revolution: Pilot Review (Article) - 9/20/2012 6:26:50 AM

I don't think this was an EMP. Dark Angel had such a premise, after all, and they were still able to use cars and motorcycles and generate new electricity.

No, this is something more powerful that was able to not just stop electricity, but complex mechanical functions as well. I have no idea what the hell could do that, and in such quick time. But that's what the rest of the show is for I guess.

Personally, I thought this was a very good start. Can't wait to see more.

Manimal the Movie? (Article) - 9/18/2012 6:03:47 AM

Oh man, I know it looks cheesy now . . . but this was my favorite show at the time! I was only six, though, so that might explain it. I used to curl my hand into a "paw" and hope I would change into a black leopard. I'm surprised it only lasted 8 episodes. I seem to recall watching more than that.

New Hobbit Images (Article) - 9/11/2012 6:11:49 AM

twomcs,

Have you never heard of the Appendices and/or the Silmarillion? Because . . . yeah, that's how! :)

Doctor Who: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship Review (Article) - 9/11/2012 6:07:44 AM

The robots reminded me of the benevolent aliens in The Fifth Element, in terms of design. And unlike the reviewer, I did not find this episode whimsical and light-hearted at all. I thought it was pretty dark, in fact. The genocide of an entire race, the sad fate of the triceratops, and the Doctor's hand in the villain's ultimate demise was not the stuff of children's bedtime stories at all. But maybe that's just me.

This was one of the better written episodes, however, and a good start to the season along with last week's "Asylum."

Metal Gear Solid Movie Confirmed (Article) - 8/31/2012 6:29:55 AM

Hideo Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear franchise, has already gone on record saying that he would have no problem with someone other than himself writing a completely original script for the movie, and a director other than himself doing his own vision of the game for the big screen. So sounds to me that the movie will have zilch to do with the stories of the game. As a huge fan of the games, I'm surprisingly okay with this. As stated by others before me, the latter games are pretty much movies in themselves. So I'll always have those. Therefore, they can do whatever they want with the movie as far as I'm concerned.

Mania Review: Premium Rush (Article) - 8/24/2012 5:53:55 AM

As the only big movie releasing this weekend, I welcome this review. I was wondering if I should waste my time even going to the movies since I've seen everything out. At least this review pushes me more in the direction of maybe checking it out. Thanks, Rob!

The Hobbit Trilogy? (Article) - 7/25/2012 5:12:37 AM

Well, the Appendices really are a book unto themselves. So I can sorta see this becoming a trilogy and being okay with that. So long as the last two movies are released no more than six months apart. I really don't have the patience to sit through another three year wait to see events unfold to their fullest in Middle Earth.

Dracula Series to NBC (Article) - 7/25/2012 5:05:30 AM

 This might have been cool . . . 10 years ago.

Item 47 Clip (Article) - 7/17/2012 6:03:06 AM

Item 47? Shouldn't S.H.I.E.L.D. send out Agent 47 to retrieve it then? Makes sense.
