Jack Is Back - 24 Special: Segments 1 & 2 (Article) - 4/9/2014 10:40:42 AM

Cannot wait for this!  I'm interested to see how the 12 hour clock will make this new season feel.

Game of Thrones: The Lion and the Rose Teaser (Article) - 4/7/2014 1:26:38 PM

Wonder if we'll get to see the entire reception?  I thought we'd have to wait longer in the season for the royal wedding. Looking forward to that!

Monkeyfoot ... the Christian fanboy comment was the best!  I'm gonna have to use that one.  LOL

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer (Article) - 3/27/2014 9:48:03 PM

I think this looks fun, period.  I was a bit shocked at first with the new look, but the more times I watched the trailer, the more it grew on me.  Guess we are just used to them looking cuter.  But I imagine this is a bit more "realistic".  I guess I'm in the minority but I love Micheal Bay films, and really, this isn't even his film.  He's the producer, not the director.  I can't wait to see this.

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/27/2014 9:39:21 PM

Great review Rob.  I am a Christian and I am definitely going to see this regardless of all the fundamentalists griping about it.  It angers me that so many Christians can't have their beliefs, and still enjoy a great film, even though it might not be exactly what they thought it should be.  Just because the film takes some creative liberties with the story, doesn't change what is in the Bible.  The story of Noah will always be there for people to read, and who knows, maybe after seeing this film, people might just pick up a Bible and read it? In the least, it will create dialogue between people regarding the story. 

I think it looks amazing and I think you hit the nail on the head.  People who think they know exactly how this story should have been portrayed and those who just scoff at the idea that this may have actually happened, will not like this movie.  I hope more people are in the middle, as you said, and go with an open mind, and just enjoy what looks to be an amazing film. 

The Walking Dead: Still Review (Article) - 3/5/2014 5:55:52 PM

Jarrod, you do have a point about the season being so short.  I guess if the season was longer, these slower episodes wouldn't frustrate so many people.  But like I said, I'm sure all these character-centric moments  payoff  by the end.

The Walking Dead: Still Review (Article) - 3/4/2014 6:34:47 PM

I think it's sad that so many viewers here are hating on these slower character-centric episodes.  I've thoroughly enjoyed them all, especially this one.  I absolutely loved how it started!  Hiding in the trunk while a herd of impossible size passed by.  It was a great creepy moment.  It took hours for them all to pass.  I hope we see that herd somewhere down the line.  Must have been thousands of walkers. 

I mean sure, going on a booze run might not be super exciting but I think the entire episode really gave us a great sense of where Beth and Darryl's heads are at.  Their dialogue throughout was great and I'm surprised what a good duo they made.  I think it was awesome that Beth was able to admit that she's not cutout for this new world. She had everything to lose from the zombpocalypse whereas Daryl had nothing.  It took the end of the world for him to find his place in it.  Best line for me was Beth telling Daryl how much he's going to miss her when she's dead.  And Daryl breaking down about not being able to save everyone was great too.  Had me shedding a tear.

The comics have been going on for a decade and people keep reading them for the characters.  Quite often, not much happens in a single issue, but when you read the collections, you see how they are important to the whole.  That's what these past few episodes have been doing, and for me, doing well.  It'll all pay off in the end.

More Matrix Movies?! (Article) - 3/2/2014 6:17:20 PM

It's funny how many posts sound the same ...  First is awesome, second meh, third sucked.  I loved all 3.  The first is one of my favorite films ever.  The sequels don't touch the original but I still loved them for different reasons.  And watching them all back to back is just amazing.  I can never get enough Matrix, so this sequel news is the best I've ever heard.  And I hope they are sequels.  Bring it on Wachowskis!

The Walking Dead: Claimed Review (Article) - 2/24/2014 11:17:31 AM

I for one wasn't bored in the slightest.  People give this show such a hard time when the pace slows down.  I thought the scenes with Rick in the house were great and full of tension.  And I liked seeing Michonne come out of her shell with Carl who has become more withdrawn.

I'm curious to know how the revelation of Eugene knowing what caused the outbreak went over with non-comic readers?  Knowing how that storyline goes in the comics I wasn't sure it affected me as much as it should have.

Violator, funny you mentioned True Detective because I watched them in the opposite order.  Still enjoyed both though. 

X-Men: Days of Future Past Official Instagram Teaser #2 (Article) - 1/23/2014 7:30:11 PM

This is one of those teasers of the trailer.  I'm assuming another full trailer will soon be upon us.
