Constantine: The Darkness Beneath Review (Article) - 11/4/2014 4:37:03 PM

Yeah, Constantine said "F*ck off" in the pilot.

The show so far FEELS a little like the American Gothic storyline in which Constantine sent Swamp Thing on a journey around the USA looking for supernatural trouble in order to convince him that somebody was using black magic to call up monsters and gain his help in defeating said someones.  Constantine's magic map makes me think that the same sort of thing is happening to him now.  

I think they are still finding their way and while the second episode wasn't as good as the first I'm willing to follow it for a few more to see where it is going.

And who says Sting isn't hot?  Did you see him back in the '80s when Chostantine was created?  I'll take two of those please! 

NOW YOU SEE ME 2 - Casting Announcements (Article) - 11/4/2014 4:21:37 PM

Violatorr, it was all tricks.  No real magic was involved.

I really enjoyed the first film but it seems to me that watching them pull off another heist might get repetative.  But I'm happy to give it a chance.

Doctor Who: Dark Water Review (Article) - 11/4/2014 5:30:28 AM

I say The Master is a yawn because it is so predictable.  Since Doctor Who's been back the big season ender episodes have included Daleks, Cybermen or The Master.  Now we have Cybermen and The Master.  With all the villians The Doctor has fought over the years and all the new villians that could be created and all the many things The Doctor could be doing doesn't that strike you as a little dull?

Also, I wasn't overjoyed by The Master's previous appearances in the New Who.  I thought those episodes were poorly written and silly.

The idea of seeing Romana again, back from that alternate universe where The Doctor left her and pissed off about it, sounds much more interesting.  What could have happened to her there which might have made her want to team up with the Cybermen?

The Doctor abandoned his granddaughter Susan too.  He left her with a human guy she seemed to have fallen in love with.  On a wrecked Earth following a Dalek invasion.  With no TARDIS.  She also might have an axe to grind with dear old Granddad.

Yet these interesting characters, situations and stories are ignored in favor of The Master doing death and destruction, yet again, because he is crazy.  Which we have already seen multiple times.  This is why I yawn.

Doctor Who: Dark Water Review (Article) - 11/3/2014 8:02:33 PM

BTW, what happened to last week's review?  Is Kimberly going to post it late or will it remain in the land of the missing?  Just because it was a bad episode doesn't mean it shouldn't get a review.

Doctor Who: Dark Water Review (Article) - 11/3/2014 8:00:52 PM

There was a line in a previous episode (The Doctor's Wife) about Timelords changing gender during a regeneration.

Even so, I'm disappointed.  When Missy was talking about The Doctor abandoning her I was thinking that there were 2 Timeladies who The Doctor had abandoned, Susan and Romanna.  It would have been much more interesting to see either of them return than the Master.  The return of the Master is a big yawn.

Which is not to say I didn't like the episode.  It was quite interesting.  Cybermen are creepy.

Fox Approves GAMBIT Spin-Off (Article) - 11/2/2014 8:52:27 PM

Tatum is an awesome exotic dancer and does action scenes really well but unfortunately, he can't act his way out of a wet paper bag.  I like Gambit and was hoping for an actor that can, you know, act.

FURIOUS 7 Trailer Arrives Online (Article) - 11/2/2014 8:47:45 PM

Oh my!  The action is getting more and more awesome.

I've seen all the films and the F&Fs 1 through 4 were solid low budget action flicks about driving fast cars around with various casts.  Fast 5 brought the stars of the various movies together in an entertaining heist film and ramped up the quality of the action considerably.  Movie #6 upped the ante.  It looks like movie #7 is sending the action into the stratosphere.

 

DOCTOR WHO: Dark Water Trailer (Article) - 10/29/2014 5:10:30 PM

Not only was Forest of the Night really stupid, it was dull as well.  An episode where The Doctor faces off against a problem rather than an enemy or monster could have been really good but he didn't seem to know what to do.  He just kind of gave up.  Very disappointing.

Fast & Furious 7 - Trailer Announcement (Article) - 10/27/2014 8:07:07 PM

Fast 5 was the best of the films so far.  I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one, what with Walker dying half way through the production.  Will it be too sad to go see it?  But I'll probably go anyway.

Mania Box Office Report: WHOA, John Wick (Article) - 10/27/2014 7:53:22 PM

We went to see The Judge.  It was a good movie but the incest subplot was unexpected and icky.
