Weekly Book Buzz: The Way of Kings (Article) - 9/1/2010 7:19:14 PM

 Hobbs:  If Brooks wrote Shannara today it would be classified as Young Adult.  Same with Eddings.  Young protagonists with coming of age themes.

Wow Walker, you finished a thousand page book in one day? I wish I had the time you have on your hands. It's going to take me a week or two to finish it once I start it.

4pm - 2am.  I read fast.

Read WoK last night.  It was pretty good.  As some people point out, his magic duels still read like someone narrating video game moves.  But there was a lot less of that in this novel and a lot more about the characters.  It was a better book because of it.

10 TV Actors We Want To See In More Movies (Article) - 8/20/2010 10:29:18 AM

Really, saying the Old Spice guy should get roles in movies is kind of like saying the "Where's the beef?" lady should have had roles in movies

She did.  The movie is called Moving Violations and stars Bill Murray's younger brother pretending to be Bill Murray.

She did not do much more because she died soon afterwards.

5 Reboots We Would Love to See (Article) - 8/14/2010 6:08:15 AM

Maximum Overdrive has no one else of consequence?  It has Yeardley Smith -- as in Lisa Simpson.  Turn in your geek badge.

The problem with The Wraith is that it is essentially a week modernization of High Plains Drifter.

 

New Game of Thrones Promo (Article) - 6/14/2010 8:43:15 AM

GRRM is notoriously slow about publishing, so I was trying to hold off on starting till at least the next book was out.

GRRM has a long way to go.  As he has pointed out regarding Jack Vance, his literary influence:

The Palace of Love (Demon Prices 3): 1967

The Face (Demon Princes 4): 1979

 

20 WTF TV Character Deaths (Article) - 5/26/2010 6:45:59 AM

 If you really want WTF, how about Tessa's death in "Highlander: The Series".  The episode has Duncan saving her from a crazy Watcher, only to have her gunned down by a random mugger on the street at the end of the episode.

20 Awesome songs for Sci-fi Fans (Article) - 4/5/2010 6:54:55 AM

 2112 is essentially a rock opera version of Anthem by Ayn Rand.  It is unfortunate that Rush is tied to this awful author, but then this was the 70s, before we learned just how naive and destructive that woman's ideology is.

TV Wasteland: Well Done, Caprica (Article) - 3/22/2010 10:18:38 AM

The Sinbad lowpoint is "Eye of the Tiger".  It has lower ratings on IMDB than Golden Voyage.  It also came out the same year as Star Wars, making its effects look pitifully dated. 

Weekly Book Buzz: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls (Article) - 3/22/2010 8:45:10 AM

Greene is awesome, but he is doing too much urban fantasy right now, with both Nightside and the Secret Histories.  I would love it if he started another space opera series.  Yes, Deathstalker is done (and Secret Histories is what you get when you cross Deathstalker with Nightside), but another, more restrained series would be great.
