DC Comics Movie Slate? (Article) - 6/13/2014 7:29:39 AM

Hmmm, which version of Sandman are they doing?  Are they going for the Neil Gaiman demigod or Wesley Dodds?

The Summer of '84: Ghostbusters (Article) - 6/9/2014 7:05:57 PM

You forgot to mention the comedic talents of Rick Moranis as Lewis Tully, the accountant.  He was damn funny too.

I see the film every once in a while (I own it on DVD).  It's still funny.  Though the sight of Bill Murray sexually harassing every woman he sees is now more uncomfortable than hilarious.  Blame our increasingly PC culture but there are several points in the film when I want to smack the smarmy smile off his face.  But the other characters have lost none of their charm over the decades.

GHOSTBUSTERS Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Release (Article) - 6/8/2014 8:58:35 PM

The first movie I saw in a theater was Disney's The Jungle Book.  I was 2.  I still remember it.

Stargate set to Return (Article) - 6/3/2014 12:29:29 PM

At first they didn't know what to do with the stones, using them to bring the characters trapped on the spaceship back to Earth for adventures focussing on their interpersonal relationships with friends and family left behind.  That didn't work out too well.  But when they used them to bring interesting guest stars to Destiny it worked better.

While all the characters started out as miserable selfish people they did develop and most became interesting characters.  I wish it hadn't been cancelled as it was really getting interesting.

Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper Review (Article) - 6/2/2014 6:24:10 PM

Look away if you don't want to read anything about the books.
 

Oberyn didn't decide to represent Tyrion in the Trial by Combat because he liked him or believed in his innocence.  He didn't care about Tyrion one way or the other.  His purpose was to face The Mountain in combat.

When he first arrived in King's Landing he demanded to see The Mountain so he could get a confesion about his sister's murder from him.  He wanted to torture it out of him and thought his new position on the King's Council would entitle him to this favor.  Cersi refused.  Oberyn had been asking for weeks and Cersi kept denying him.  He saw this combat as his best chance to get the confession.  That's why he was dancing around and giving The Mountain painful but non fatal wounds.  He wanted that confession.

The show kind of glossed over this plot thread but that was Obern's motivation.
 

Stargate set to Return (Article) - 5/31/2014 11:01:48 AM

Atlantis WAS cancelled to make room for SG:U.  Do you think it was an accident that the cancelation of Atlantis and the announcement of the new series came in the same week? 

That didn't mean that I wasn't willing to give the new show a chance.  They tried to ape the tone of BSG which was really hot back then.  And it was kind of the opposite tone of their other shows, so grim and fatalistic.  But it really found it's footing and became interesting in it's own right, just before they cancelled it.  *sigh*

Redhairs, the first season of SG:U was awful but in the second season it found it's voice.  By the time it was cancelled it had become really interesting.  What a shame.

Stargate set to Return (Article) - 5/30/2014 8:21:07 AM

After 10 years of Stargate SG-1. 5 years of Stargate Atlantis and 2 years of Stargate Universe you wonder how much story there is left to tell.

GAME OF THRONES: Mockingbird Review (Article) - 5/23/2014 8:33:00 AM

Martin peopled Westros with violent sociopaths.  Joffrey, Ramsay Snow, The Mountain and now little Robin Arryn who loves to push people through the moon door.  Robin's pretty young.  Will he learn compassion and empathy when he gets a little older (assuming he lives that long) or will he remain that way into adulthood?

Mania Review: Godzilla (Article) - 5/16/2014 7:07:28 AM

I kind of enjoyed the '98 Godzilla.  I like Matthew Broderick and the idea of the French CIA in NYC was hilarious.  It worked for me as a comedy with monsters rather than a monster flick but hey, whatever works.

Looking forward to seeing the new movie and will try to catch it sometime this weekend.
