SMALLVILLE 9.21 - "Salvation" Review (Article) - 5/16/2010 11:13:44 PM

While it might be cool to see Darkseid and his minions invade the earth, it should NOT happen on SMALLVILLE.   This is Darkseid folks and let's face it, Smallville will not do him justice.  Save Darkseid's first live-action appearance for the big screen.  

That being said, I'll probably watch next season also.  Nice finish, Smallville.

Renaissance Fair Movie Maven: Robin Hood & Shrek 4 (Video) - 5/14/2010 9:06:55 PM

I'm so done with Russell Crowe. Shrek 4 for me this weekend. Rumor is there's a puss ('n boots)- licking scene.

Sure looks that way.

Firefly gets cancelled and yet some sick puppy finances The Human Centipede? UFB. Yeah, I'm still not over it. Seriously, how desperate must you be ass an actor to take this part? Holy crap! Acting is not all its cracked up to be. I guess when you're hungry, you take whatever role comes your way, no ifs, ands or butts about it. The end justifies the means. Eventually the prize is fame and enough money to pay for therapy and mouthwash. Who knows? Maybe some day when one of the centipeders is eating salad with croûtons on the set of another movie, she'll find a way to put this all behind her. If not, too bad. Hindsight is 20/20 at this range.

Lost Happily Ever After Review (Article) - 4/7/2010 10:57:59 AM

For you comic readers out there:  This episode is SOOOO similar in concept to Marvel's House of M. For those of you unfamiliar with that story, the Scarlet Witch (a former Avenger) altered reality in an effort to recreate the children she had lost.  Eloise,  the Scarlet Witch of the Lost universe, uses her son to construct a Happily Ever After (House of M) where everyone gets their heart's desire.  Desmond, Charlie and the other Losties are like the heroes in the House of M (Spidey, Wolvie, Hawkeye, etc.) that eventually "wake up" and sacrifice their happily ever after (it sucks that Spidey couldn't stay with Gwen Stacey) in order to restore the true reality.

Simply setting in motion of a series of events that led to the detonation of a nuclear bomb isn't enough in and of itself to create a Happily ever after.  How does Eloise evolve from the young woman who unknowingly shot her own son to the mature woman who willingly sacrifices him? Why does she try to keep Desmond and Penny apart in multiple universes? How is their love an obstacle to her Happily Ever after?  Is she trying to prevent the creation of baby-Charlie? Whatever the reason, there appear to be two too-many Charlies in her unhappily ever after, the other being hobbit-Charlie.  My, what lengths a woman will go to in order to have a perfectly placed spoon, and a Widmore to spoon with...henceforth known as spooning-Charlie.

I hope that one of the remaining episodes focuses on Charles Widmore and whoever Penelope's mother turns out to be and Eloise Hawking who, like Desmond, appears to be a nexus and architect of universes.

 Best episode of the season thus far.  I wanted you to mention something about the Drive Shaft song on the radio (You all, Everybody).  The second half of the song fits this episode nicely.

I know you see what i have been -  (Desmond knows the island-Charlie)
And compare with what i am - (Desmond knows the landing universe-Charlie)
But i don't care now what you've seen  - (Charlie says the landing universe is a lie)
I'm just doing what i can - (Charlie takes the wheel / Forces Desmond to see the lie)
You say you've given up on me  - (He's just a junkie, after all.)
And you say it like i should care - (I'm already dead anyway and I can't have Crazy Claire. Boo hoo.)
Well i have given up on you - (Charlie has given up on living the landing universe lie.)
And no, i don't want to “share”  - (Doesn't want to share his drugs? This seems so unlike Joe, who would probably let a Maniac take a hit from his bong.) 

How to Train Your Dragon Movie Review (Article) - 3/27/2010 10:36:31 AM

My daughter and I are looking forward to seeing this movie.  Good review, but I have to take exception with the first four words: "I own no children".   

Kick Ass Movie Premiere (Video) - 3/17/2010 7:11:55 PM

Until Tara said it, I wouldn't have thought it. I can definitely see McLovin as Peter Parker. Not sure about him able to pull the spider-man part off, but hey, that's what Avatar class CGI is for.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE - Trailer #1 (Video) - 3/12/2010 7:27:40 PM

I haven't read any of the books. Can someone tell me what other monsters fall in love with her later? The Frankenstein monster, or the Mummy maybe? I mean what are the odds that both a blood sucker and crotch sniffer will fall for you?

March Movie Maven Movie Madness (Video) - 3/5/2010 2:04:36 AM

Woke up. Couldn't sleep. It's almost 4 a.m. I've got a million to-do's that I should-do's, but the first thing I think about doing is watching this episode of the Movie Maven....again. Funniest moment: (Post-apocalyptic city skyline in the background) "NOOOOOO! OH MY GOD! (Sorrowful sound. Consoles herself with sip of cocktail.) "MMMM."
