Mania Box Office Report: Katniss, of Course! (Article) - 11/26/2014 8:55:53 AM

 Never was an overly huge fan of Avatar.  The effects and all were okay, but the story was pretty blah.

Arrow: Guilty Review (Article) - 11/20/2014 8:48:03 AM

 I alway miss these reviews when they drop on Fridays.  By the time I look at the site on Monday, it's usually buried.

Anyway, rogue188, I'd agree with your statement about no one reporting crimes, etc. in the Glades if it wasn't for the fact that they showed a wall of newspaper clippings and such about Wildcat's exploits.

 Hoping and assuming so, Higgy.  

Mania Box Office Report: DUMB and Dumbest Too Win (Article) - 11/19/2014 9:24:11 AM

 Spoilers for Interstellar-

 

He couldn't have taken his daughter with him for the reasons listed about from Monkeyfoot and Kara.  The movie wasn't Lost In Space/Star Trek type of futurtistic space travel, it's supposed to be the not too distant future.  Those ship are only large enough to carry a small crew and supplies for that small crew.  MM knew there was little chance he would return or even succeed in their mission.  He knew his daugther had a better chance of survival staying on Earth.  He took the risk on a hope that he would succeed.  Did he truly believe he'd come back to her alive?  Obviously not.  There's the scene on the bed where she asks him to promise that he'll come back and he couldn't do it.

Also, Wise, taking the daughter would have ruined a big part the emotional side of the story.  The heartbreak MM goes through while watching those videos from his son and daugther after they got back from the first planet was just gut-wrenching.

The Flash - "The Flash is Born" Preview (Article) - 11/19/2014 9:16:27 AM

 Yeah, I totally missed that cameo.  Usually good at spotting them.  Wasn't Wells' ex who died before he came to town named Tina Morgan, not McGee?  Or did I miss something.

I hope the Christmas theme was just for this teaser trailer.  I really like the old Charlie Brown cartoons, but I feel they should stay away from another Christmas story.  They already have one of the best.  If they try to do another one, it'll be endlessly compared to the original and thus have tons of fanboy hate dumped on it. 

Project Almanac TRAILER #2 (Article) - 11/19/2014 9:03:16 AM

 I didn't recognize name of this movie, but the trailer was definitely familiar.  Then I looked on IMDB and it was apparently called Welcome to Yesterday previously.  Looks interesting, so I'm in if though I don't care for found footage films in general.

CASTLE: Once Upon A Time In the West Review (Article) - 11/19/2014 8:59:20 AM

 I do quite enjoy the show even the sillier episodes like this.  I was surprised there weren't any references to Firefly in this episode.  None that I spotted anyway.  The one thing that brings the show down in my mind is the predictability/formula of the show.  I leaned over to my wife when when the owner of the old west town was introduced.  I said that guy's the killer.  Number 1, it's the first guy they talked to besides the sheriff and number 2, the guy is a recognizable character actor from parts on Angel and The Dark Knight.

Still love the show for the comedy and the character moments, but the formulaic writing bugs me sometimes.

CASTLE: The Time of our Lives Review (Article) - 11/13/2014 10:28:21 AM

 Not my favorite episode, but not as bad as I would have thought when it first started. The thing this show has going for it is largely the cast. They work so well together even when their characters don't know each other. Still they are very charismatic and able to pull off an episode like this.


I will have to disagree those, Jarrett, with you on Interstellar. What exactly did you find confusing about the plot of the movie? Honestly I found it to be one of Nolan's most straight-froward, all-questions answered, films. It's not 2001 where unless you were trip pin' on acid, you had not idea what the hell it meant or what happened.

Mania Box Office Report: Baymax vs. TARS (Article) - 11/12/2014 7:33:47 PM

 Kara, glad you liked it.  The Matt Damon appearance took me by surprise as well.  It may have gotten a bit strange toward the end but it was all explained within the film so it made sense whereas 2001 never answered anything and was just strange/pyschodelic at the end.
