The Strain: Creatures of the Night Review (Article) - 9/1/2014 4:45:50 PM

 Basically, from what I have seen, it feels like what would happen if Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich tried to do horror...I just don't see it working.

The Strain: Creatures of the Night Review (Article) - 9/1/2014 4:28:44 PM

 I watched the first three episodes of this show...really couldn't get into it.  The way it comes off to me is that it tries to be too many things:  sometimes it wants to be creepy and atmospheric, at other times it wants to be an action oriented show.  I'm also pretty underwhelmed with the acting and dialogue.  Does it get better past the third episode, or is it pretty much more of the same?  

Doctor Who: Into the Dalek Review (Article) - 9/1/2014 2:37:45 AM

 I can certainly understand that position, FerretJohn.  I think a lot of The Doctor's distaste for soldiers comes from more than a bit of self-loathing though.  I'm sure he still remembers being the War Doctor, it was established that nobody would remember that Galifrey was saved, and he taught a Dalek to self-loathe in an attempt to open it's mind to new ideas.  In "Name of the Doctor" it was established that taking the title of The Doctor is a promise, and he hates himself for breaking that promise.  Or perhaps we're both reading too much into it.  As for the kids...yeah, even I had been taught by that age that there are some questions you just don't ask some people.

First Look: AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #1 (Article) - 8/31/2014 3:56:02 AM

 Interesting premise, but (IMO) BAD CALL making Red Skull look like Onslaught.  Such a terrible story.  I wonder if they'll go full star trek into darkness and have the X-Men end up in their own stupid pocket universe?

NEW Doctor Who Series 8 Trailer (Article) - 8/11/2014 5:03:58 AM

 Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to what Capaldi brings to the character, but why should we hope for a different ride?  I like the ride just fine.

CONSTANTINE Preview Unveiled at Comic-Con 2014 (Article) - 8/5/2014 5:23:41 AM

I actually saw the pilot a few weeks ago on a pirate TV site...honestly wasn't all that dark or too intense for network television...honestly, I liked it well enough, but there seemed to be a lot of potential that the pilot just didn't fully realize...we'll see.

Mania Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (Article) - 8/4/2014 1:42:38 AM

And seriously, Mania...this forbidden bullshit was old a few weeks ago.  What gives?

Mania Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (Article) - 8/4/2014 1:41:00 AM

Saw it tonight.  Loved it.  Can't believe some of you didn't like the post credits scene!  LOL

NEW Gotham Trailer (Article) - 7/16/2014 6:55:45 PM

 I'll get excited and watch it online after the season is over if Fox doesn't cancel it.

The Summer of '84: The Last Starfighter (Article) - 7/14/2014 2:51:11 PM

 This was the first movie I ever bought previously viewed...on Betamax...LOVED it as a kid.  I saw it again a few years ago...kind of painful now, but still a fun ride.
