The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 4/3/2014 10:15:03 AM

Jarrod,

Just wanted to login with my thoughts on the, "why is everyone evil" topic.  I consider that law enforcement is just gone now, it's like we are back in the wild west again...with zombies everywhere.  Outlaws were common then, and they are now.  Why are they common?  Because there is no one to arrest or police them...there is no 911 to call for help.  Now the helpless just get overrun by the ruthless, and the ruthless do what they need to survive, without a moral compass.  These are the same people that would be behind bars in normal society, but here they just have free reign.  They have no reason to NOT do terrible things to people, and that is why you are seeing so many of them...because they are systematically eliminating the weak.

Thoughts?

Eyeball meet splinter scene...

Runaways Movie Shelved (Article) - 9/26/2013 7:13:36 AM

I don't understand why.  Runaways would tap an entirely different audience, and the idea behind it is fresh.  No reason that the comic universe can't be expanded...dumb move on Marvel.

The Pull List: 9/11/13 (Article) - 9/12/2013 7:56:45 AM

I get my books from a comic shop and the 3d covers are actually pretty rare.

Snatch em up if you see em.

Mania Box Office Report: Ass Kicked (Article) - 8/19/2013 2:09:35 PM

Also, comparing R.I.P.D to kick ass is ridiculous, as kick ass didn't have half the budget of that film.  It will make it's money back after the domestic run and foreign box office...R.I.P.D may not ever make it's budget back.

I really enjoyed the sequel and don't really understand the critics problem with this film. The idea that this film is insanely violent is complete bs....all of the violence is really tongue in cheek.  It's almost as if there is some witch hunt against Mark Millar or the film itself.  How else do you account for sites like boxofficeprophets saying stuff like "the sequel that nobody wanted".  There have been far more violent movies that have been praised and the gross out humor consisted of one scene.  It's ridiculous.

Bates Motel: A Boy And His Dog Review (Article) - 5/8/2013 11:18:35 AM

And isn't the fact that Norman really didn't react to Emma's apology just showing us how disconnected he is from his emotions...signs of what he will become.  I think it was done intentionally and I think that Emma was just as shocked as he was when didn't react the way a "normal" boy would.

This was another riveting episode.  I love this show, I think it's my most anticipated of the week now.

Bates Motel: The Truth Review (Article) - 4/24/2013 6:52:58 AM

I do think that there were better ways of getting rid of the belt than throwing it in the lake, with everything intact.  Why not take all of the tools out of it and then burn the belt.  Can't a fisherman find the belt pretty easily?  Other than that it was a solid episode.  Dylan, despite his criminal foray, is really looking out for his brother.  They took a character that could have just been the bad seed, and turned him into a complex individual that makes it hard for you to hate him.

Bates Motel: The Truth Review (Article) - 4/24/2013 6:45:37 AM

This was the best episode of this series yet.  It was tense and suspenseful.  Not being able to tell who came out of the house was a great suspenseful tactic.  I was on the edge of my seat during the entire final act.  A definite A from me.
