What Spoiled Hateful Eight For Me? Spoilers Below!

hateful-eight-movie-casting-imagesHi Readers,

As I posted just a bit ago I watched Hateful Eight over Christmas break, and while holidays and in-laws meant that I couldn’t get a post up as soon as I liked, the spoiler free review of the movie is up on the blog, in case you haven’t seen the film, but if you have – here’s the spoilery review in all it’s gore!

Now, I’d like to start by saying that there was SO much to like about this movie, but there was one scene in particular that I hated… well maybe hated is a bit of a strong term, but let’s say I had some hateful emotions. Continue reading “What Spoiled Hateful Eight For Me? Spoilers Below!” »

How Hateful Eight is a Horse of a Different Color

The-Hateful-EightHi Readers,

I intended this post to be done almost immediately after I saw the film on Christmas Day with my family (something I regret less than I feared I would, considering my mom is not a Tarantino fan), but when my in-laws visited I got busy contracting a bit of cabin fever, thankfully there was no blood shed off screen. Now this post is spoiler-free, with my spoilery post coming soon, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, feel free to read on.

When someone asked me on Facebook what I thought of the film I told them that I thought cinephiles would love it, but that the bulk of Tarantino fans would find it both long and lacking. And this is basically where I find myself.  Continue reading “How Hateful Eight is a Horse of a Different Color” »

Bringing Balance to The Force Awakens

tfa_poster_wide_header-1536x864-959818851016Hi Readers,

Almost two weeks after its release (a release I drove two hours to see in IMAX at 10:00 pm on a week night), I finally have the time and mindset to give what I hope is a review that will bring balance to the fans, because while several love the film like the Jedi love the light side, the dark side has some pretty strong (and at times valid) complaints. Beware though, reading leads to spoilers, which will in all likelihood lead to hate and suffering.

What’s a Nerdgasm? Tom Lenk shares at Fan Fest

IMG_20151205_164043Hi Readers,

One of the best things, if not the best thing, about nerdy and pop culture conventions is that people of all fandoms can gather and even if we can’t agree on things like whether we’d rather travel in the TARDIS, Impala, Millenium Falcon or IMG_20151205_181035Enterprise we can all recognize each other’s inner geek. And we’ve all had at least one nerdgasm. Now a nerdgasm for me (Loki in Hall H) might not be one for you, but trust me when I say if we’ve been to a con or two we’ve all had one, and perhaps no one explains it best than Tom Lenk who not only helps define the term but stands as an example for nerds every where in his new documentary Nerdgasm, which he shared along with Q & A at Fan Fest.

Why Practically Everyone Will Love Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Baba Joe Hall H SDCC 2015 SDCC15Hi Readers,

While there are a slew of SDCC posts to come, once I sort through pictures, I wanted to take a moment to explain why, regardless in what at year end is reflected in box office dollars, or how frequently nerds might rage online in December, that for all practical purposes Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens will be beloved by all who watch it.

Because Episode VII, as demonstrated at San Diego Comic-Con will be as practical as possible when it comes to effects, and that will make all the difference in the galaxy! Continue reading “Why Practically Everyone Will Love Star Wars: The Force Awakens” »
