Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray Review (Article) - 9/13/2014 9:58:51 PM

Believe it or not I still watch some things on VHS.  I have a few things on VHS that aren't available on region 1 DVD.  And I have a LOT of movies on VHS and I have no desire to shell out $1000 to replace them with another format.

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Article) - 9/9/2014 8:14:26 AM

When superhero films have new scripts people complain that it was bad and why can't they use the plot from thus and such a well known story from the comics.  When they use a well known story from the comics folks complain that they know that story and why can't they do something new?  How can anybody win at that game?

Think of it like adapting a novel.  You're taking a well known story and making a movie out of it.

Doctor Who: Robot Of Sherwood Review (Article) - 9/8/2014 4:16:15 AM

Your first Doctor is always your favorite.  No matter how good any other Doctor will ever be he won't quite measure up to Tom Baker for me.

Everybody has been going on and on about how great an actor Peter Capaldi is and how lucky we are to have him as the Doctor but I'd never heard of him before.  He seems to be doing a credible job and I'm looking forward to seeing more of his episodes.


 

Doctor Who: Robot Of Sherwood Review (Article) - 9/7/2014 5:28:50 PM

This episode really reminded me of classic Who.  It was less a deep character study and more focussed on plot. 

Neil Gaiman's Hansel and Gretel gets Film! (Article) - 9/7/2014 5:18:03 PM

Anything Neil Gaiman does is fine by me.  Bring on Hansel and Gretel.

Doctor Who: Into the Dalek Review (Article) - 9/1/2014 12:13:46 PM

The Dalek does see beauty through The Doctor's eyes.  But he also sees hatred and being a Dalek finds it easier to connect with.  The Dalek likes The Doctor and since he hates Daleks, Rusty the Dalek decides he'd better kill Daleks.

And The Doctor lets him go off on what is obviously a suicide mission.  How far does anybody think Rusty will get before the other Daleks destroy him?

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Teaser (Article) - 8/31/2014 2:05:49 PM

I believe that the Knave of Hearts alias Will Scarlett from Once Upon A Time In Wonderland is also supposed to join the cast.  This is good because he was by far the best thing about that show.  But with all these new characters are we ever going to see the original cast?

Doctor Who: Into The Dalek Teaser (Article) - 8/27/2014 9:32:40 AM

Interesting.

Are there going to be reviews of the new eps of Dr Who?

Sir Richard Attenborough Has Passed (Article) - 8/25/2014 7:55:14 AM

Also he has narated many, many nature documentaries.

Mania Box Office Report: Turtles and Guardians on Top (Article) - 8/19/2014 7:04:15 AM

I took my Mom to Expendables 3.  We were looking for a movie to see and there wasn't anything else even semi appealing to her at the local theater.  You say this movie is for kids but I didn't see any in the audience.  Everybody there seemed to be over 50.

We both enjoyed the film.  Seeing all these stars who, back in the day, would have headlined their own movies working together was fun.  We haven't seen the first 2 films in the franchise but we may need to look them up.

Did anybody else notice how young Wesley Snipes looked?  He looks fresh as a daisy!  All the other aging action stars looked their ages but Snipes looked more like the young blood actors Sly recruited to fill in.   He must have had a lot of work done.

It's been a bad summer for films.  There have been a few good ones but there have been a lot of weekends where we wanted to go to the movies but nothing appealing was playing.  The past few years so many interesting movies were coming out over the summer that I couldn't keep up.  Not a problem for the summer of '14.
