Dexter: A Beautiful Day Review (Article) - 7/2/2013 7:51:40 AM

Meeh. I didnt think the opening episode was very good to be honest. It seems kinda bizarre that we skip ahead 6 months and nobody seems any the wiser about Dexters real,identity after the La Guerta killing. I guess that is the corner the writers painted themselves into though. Undoubtedly things will start to spiral out of control as the season and Dexter comes to an end. It should make for interesting viewing although I cant help but feel that the series as whole as gone a few seasons more than it should have.

After seeing Prometheus, I am very worried lol.

Game of Thrones: Dark Wings, Dark Words Review (Article) - 4/11/2013 10:07:45 AM

I adore Game Of Thrones but I thought this was one of the weaker episodes of the series so far. It dragged along for me and thats the first time I have found that to be the case. I agree that it was glaring that  Danerys storyline was not touched on at all. It is undoubtedlly for me the most interesting story arc of the multitude that are going on. The Jamie storyline with him wandering around the land with the manwoman has dragged on far too long  and it came to its apex in this episode. I am glad to see that it seems as if that is coming to an end. so far it has been a solid B for me with 2 episodes gone. I am anticipating that as things pick up steam and storylines converge , coming episodes will be terrific.    

Walking Dead: Arrow on the Doorpost Clip (Article) - 3/5/2013 10:10:22 AM

Wasnt a big fan of the recent episode or the 2nd half of the season so far. A little too much introspective and soul searching character development and not enough story development. Still better than most other dramas on tv though. They set the bar so high its hard to keep delivering.  

New RIDDICK Photo Arrives (Article) - 3/5/2013 10:06:03 AM

Not too excited by the premise. It does sound alot like the first movie. I personally was a big fan of the 2nd movie. Although flawed the loved the epic feel and scope. I kinda wish they had kept expanding on that universe.  

Mania Box Office Report: A Whole Lot of Zeros (Article) - 1/15/2013 1:29:51 PM

I really dont understand al the contoversy about the torture scenes in the movie. If thats what happened then it had to be shown. Its not even that gratutious or shocking in my opinion. Im sure they could have made it much more graphic and I believe Bigelow herself said that if they put half the stuff they had researched and put it in the movie it would have got an x rating. I cant believe that people are naive enough to think that the USA wouldnt use torture to gain vital information. 

As for the movie itself. I was engrossed from start to finish. I was impressed how events unfolded in a matter of fact way without over dramatising things. The subject matter itself leant enough wait to the movie on its own. Jessica Chaistain was great and then supporting cast was stellar too. The raid on the complex was some of the best action/drama I have seen in a movie for a long time. I really hope it wins best picture at the Oscars although it looks like the Academy will go with the safe option Argo. Ironically a movie along the same themes but without the gratutious torture scenes. Boo.
