Star Wars Rebels Sneak Peek - Save the Wookies (Article) - 9/2/2014 7:59:05 AM

 They might as well go all the way and and make them look like the lego's they intend to sell from the show. It's a shame to see that animation has openly become the advertisement for the toys as opposed to the toys spring forth from a great show. I know toy sales etc. has been a big considerastion for any animated production on TV for quite a while but I wish it wasn't so blatant now. We lost a good show, Young Justice, because of it.

24: Live Another Day: 8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Review (Article) - 7/2/2014 10:52:40 PM

What I love about 24 is when it's good you get so wrapped up in the escalated threats you suprise yourself when you almost forgot about the initial threats that start the season. This one has a great head of steam and has been been a blast. So many of the shows I watch lately are more a slow boil or take their time (too much damn time, mostly) and 24 is a true joy of pure adrenalin and forward momentum.

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/30/2014 9:42:57 PM

 I would say that a lot of folks who aren't scientists or studied in certain fields should stop making authoratative statements about those fields. That's directed mostly at Politicians who spout off propaganda likes it's scientific fact or disparage established, scientific consensus without a second thought to actual intellectual credibility. 

...."I admit I'm no geologist or scientist in any other background and one doesn't have to be in order to find out the facts of whether or not Noah's Flood ever took place"

Luckily I don't have enough hair to pull out anymore to do so when I read more anti-intellectual crap like the above. 

Oh..and the movie looks like a bloated, CGI nightmare from the trailer. Would have been ballsy to make a rated R movie as it seems most stories from The Old Testament were just that. Does God really need to wipe out a PG-13 world..LOL

FWIW I enjoy a good Biblical movie. The Ten Commandements and Ben Hur are awesome. They're no different to me than any other entertaining fiction.

 

Denzel Washington for Green Lantern? (Article) - 1/2/2014 10:30:45 PM

 Either Idris Elba or Chiwetal Eijofor should play Jon Stewart. I think the story line between him and Hawkgirl and dealing with her betrayal in the Thanagarian? Invasion in the JL cartoon was great. Plus how many wisecracking heroes do we need. Once the Flash gets in there there's only so much to go around.

Mania Review: Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (Article) - 1/1/2014 3:09:27 PM

 I thought the same thing Ultrazilla. How could they give a B- to one of the most boring movies I've ever seen...parts of...anyway. When I wasn't back to my laptop and other things. Then when reading the review I thought, OK I didn't pay attention because of how lame it was but I'm pretty sure the family was white and not hispanic. Who new they churned out another one already. No movie that's basically OK, not offensive but not geat should get a B-. Why reward this crap at all. How about marketing and production money getting funneled to stuff that's worthwhile and we don't keep accepting this as what we get by putting money in their pockets.

Cornish for Star Trek 3? (Article) - 11/4/2013 10:40:06 AM

It would be nice to have a Star Trek that played out more adult and not like a couple of 20 somethings out on a road trip and let's see what shenanigans happen. I like Chris Pine but they haven't portrayed him any way as someone who is actually technically educated which at least Kirk was even when getting his shirt ripped lol!  

Army of Darkness 2 Update (Article) - 10/22/2013 9:11:30 AM

  This would work as long as they don't take the audience love for granted and just think being cute and winking at us will get it done. If they really dig in and make a proper movie that stays true to what they established it could be epic. It would be cool if they gave it some big budget flourishes. They could easily have Ash start off in the future world devestated by deadites that I guess was an alternate ending to AoD but was the ending I saw when I first saw the movie in the theatre. Just have that he was aged as he travelled in time. Almost like a Rip Van Winkle against the dead lol!

Fall of '83: The Dead Zone (Article) - 10/22/2013 9:05:20 AM

Got to agree here, this is a great movie. Everytime it comes on I watch it 'til the end or at least DVR it for later. Funny enough, the only other KIng movie i can do that with is completely on the other end of the stylistic spectrum and that's Maximum Overdrive.

Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode Review 1.1 (Article) - 9/26/2013 9:31:11 PM

 I like Whedon but the "Whedon Factor" was off the charts in this pilot. I found it verging on train wreck at any moment. If they can serious it up just a pinch and not have every 2nd line be a quip I might stick with it. I think I found that Caulson works in bits and pieces but not as a mainstay lead. Right noe it's too pretty and shiny and perfectly clever for it's own good. I found it hard to stay focused on it.

True Blood: Radioactive Review (Article) - 8/20/2013 10:41:18 PM

 Warlow's death reminded me of Russell's. Too quick and easy. But I miss Russell.Didn't Sookie use her light to un-glamor Alcide soon after Eric did it? This season was better but the finale was kind of lame. Why weren't the vamps about to attack the party showing any signs of the virus? I was really bummed that Jason didn't shoot Sarah Newlen when he could have. That would have been powerful. I think with that and Andy not shooting Jess at his door they missed two big oppurtunities to wow and shock us, which this show hasn't done for as long as I can remember.
