Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Turn Turn Turn Review (Article) - 4/9/2014 7:04:17 PM

 It was just okay for me. I could see most of the plot twist coming a mile away. The only thing that caught me by surprise was Hand not being a Hydra agent. Everything else, including Ward, was very obvious. Who couldn't see that after he shot the guy in the wheelchair, then saying he did it to protect Skye? That was sooo out of character it had to be a plot twist. And Paxton's character? Come on, it' Chet. Who would trust Chet? ...lol

With that said, it was still enjoyable because I like the Marvel Universe.and the show is getting better and better every week. All in all it wasn't bad. I'd give it a B.

Mania Interview: Gina Carano (Article) - 4/8/2014 5:19:53 PM

 Gadot is a lot better actress than Corano. No way they were going to cast her as WW. You'll see her mostly do the straight to DVD fare and she may pop up on TV here and there. That's about it until her acting improves. Which, in all do fairness to her, can happen with hard work. She's got the presence. That's half the battle. Now, she just has to put in the work and she'll get there.

 Darth and Eldogg,

im not sure about that. But, I'll except it. I'll pay closer attention the next time I see the film. If they're consistent with it, I'll buy it

 Spoiler question:

The scene where Cap takes a hit from the rocket launcher and gets knocked back. Wouldn't his shield have obsorbed all of the energy of that hit? I thought a major property of vibranium is that it would obsorb and disburse force and energy. He took a hit from Thor and Mjlinor in The Avengers. Yet, in this film, a rocket launcher knocks him on his ass. Am I missing something?

 Jimmyzee, a lot of the people posting here have been trying to get me to do that for the last couple of years. But, l ain't goin' nowhere. ...lol

However, I am going to see Cap again. This time, completely drug free and in much better theater. When I saw it over the weekend, I'd just gotten out of the hospital the day before. Still had a buz from the drugs they gave me. So much so, that I did not trust myself to drive.

There may be hope for me yet ... lol

 Liked it a lot. But, did not love it. Was very predictable to me. But, in defense of the film, I may have loved it had I not seen it the day after getting out of the hospital. Still feelling a bit drugged up so I'm sure that played a majority part in "WOW!" dampening aspect of my movie going experience. Plus the theater I saw it in had the screen so free kin' dim that I it was hard to make out what was happening during the night sequences.

Gonna' have to bite the bullet and see it again at my local Arclight theater.

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 4/2/2014 1:15:12 PM

 Look, the bible and it's teaching belong in church. Hollywood should be about entertainment. Science should be about proving and discovering what is possible independant of religion and, or, entertainment. So many Christians get bent out of shape because "society" doesn't treat our beliefs as fact, when in reality, those beliefs don't stand up to logic and scientific rigor. And, that's what makes me question their faith.

if you need tangible, provable, absolutes to confirm your beliefs, than do you truly have faith? If you think because Hollywood doesn't tell a biblical story exactly as it happened in the bible then that somehow will undo what God wants, then aren't you, in fact, doubting God's power?

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/31/2014 6:16:58 PM

I was born and raised in the church. Southern Baptist. My father is a minister (albeit not SB). But,  any film that gets conservative Christians up in arms automatically piques my interest. Those people seem really small minded. By their actions, I'm not sure they understand the gospel.

is thier faith so weak that it can be threatened by a movie?

Arrow: Birds of Prey Review (Article) - 3/27/2014 4:32:04 PM

 This is the kind of writing that doomed Heroes. Definitely a C-. 

Rumor: Bradley Cooper for Indiana Jones? (Article) - 3/26/2014 5:36:03 PM

 This isn't directed at any one comment in particular. Just over arching distaste of the aliens in the last IJ movie; how can people think aliens are absurd but not have a problem with face melting arks and other magical religious artifacts. I've never understood that one.

i didn't care for the last one. But, the aliens had nothing to do with it.
