The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 3/31/2014 8:24:07 PM

Why didn't Darryl just yell out "Claimed"?  They set us up for him to use that word in a situation like that and then when he gets the chance to use it, doesn't.  Wouldn't have been as interesting of a show of course, but if that were to happen for real, how would you not use it at a time like that?!!

Tarzan Release Date Set (Article) - 2/18/2014 8:45:12 AM

 Why isn't there any current news on this site?  Nothing since 2/13/14?

Star Wars News is Coming! (Article) - 10/10/2013 12:21:51 PM

I agree @Iridan, I'm still waiting for the long ago promised review of 'Now You See Me'.  Review should have come out when the movie came out, then it was promised when the DVD came out and now, still nothing!  What's up Robert??!!

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh Blu-ray Review (Article) - 9/11/2013 7:43:34 PM

Rob,

And here we get a review for Winnie the Pooh, but still no review for Now You See Me?  Why Rob, why?  While I have nothing against the Pooh, I would much rather come to this site to read reviews that fit the Mania genre more than Pooh does!

You review many movies when they come out, but for some reason couldn't get around to 'Now You See Me' when it came out.  You said 'we'll review it when it comes out on DVD'.  Well, now it's out on DVD.  What's the excuse now?

The Geek Life: Living in Oblivion (Article) - 8/19/2013 6:56:05 PM

I thought it was great as well.  I have no problem with the Cruise-isms either.  Those may not be things that he adds to the movie himself, but may actually be written into the story as the character's clothing accessories, etc.  Also, for every movie that's made nowadays, there are half a dozen others that are similar or knock offs to it.  If they can make it interesting and change it just a bit, it's still good and I'm still going to enjoy it.

Robert, are you or have you already written a review of 'Now You See Me'?  I didn't see it on the Reviews list and wondered why it was left out?

Arrow: The Huntress Returns Review (Article) - 3/22/2013 4:05:54 PM

Why did it go off the air for a couple of weeks when it had just come back from the split season hiatus that all shows seem to go through now?

Walking Dead: Beside the Dying Fire Review (Article) - 3/19/2012 6:56:39 PM

Hey Y'All,

Been lurking on this site for about a decade now and finally decided to add in my two cents.

I've loved reading everyone's comments over the years, so thanks and I'm looking forward to conversing with you all more as time permits and chiming in from time to time.

Regarding the Season 2 finale, I think there is something no one has mentioned yet, or at least I haven't read it yet, about what makes the herd mentality plausible.   The characters seem to have forgotten and us as the viewers have to remember is that they are now in a world which is virtually void of any substantial sounds.  No airplanes.  No automboiles.  No machines running, etc., etc. except what un-dead people are using.  This group through the entire two seasons has not been very quiet about the noises they make is this new world.  Sounds can carry an awful long way, especially when there are no other loud sounds to deaden them or muffle them.  Explosions and smoke can be seen, heard and felt just as far, if not further, depending on the size and volume.

So, it is entirely believable that the helicopter could have set them off, but then they could have been drawn to places like the CDC when it exploded and then have been somewhat following the group as they go along from week to week.  The shoot out at the town would have drawn them there in greater numbers.  The fire and smoke at the farm would have drawn them in that direction if they would have seen the smoke and smelled the rotting flesh.  It just keeps snowballing.  Every time they move along and do something stupid by making their presence known to the entire world, they are drawing in walkers from many miles away.  If it wasn't for the last gunshot turning them, they probably would have missed them by just a field or two.

Just my 2 cents.

 

Unspecified Title (Article) - 3/7/2008 6:06:03 PM

Did I read it correctly that M. Night is working on an Avatar trilogy? I thought that was Cameron's baby. Anyone else read that?
