Go And Watch The Guest

Leave a Comment

Yet another great addition to my Halloween movie lineup. A fresh take on the PTSD thriller genre, which borrows elements from traditional slasher films. All that plus Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), who's unrecognizable!

I rarely tell people this (although, I've done it a lot recently), but don't watch any trailers. Go in blind and enjoy the experience.

The bikes are aired up and ready to ride. One more step in my plan to have a more healthy active lifestyle (no more weekend couch potato-ing, well, moderate to light potato-ing).

Powers, Not as Bad as You Expected

The first episode is so-so, but second is pretty decent. All of the powers stuff is cheesy, costumes, effects, the whole shebang. Sharlito Copley's acting is really uneven, but the supporting cast picks up the slack. The super-villain is a fake-ass David Slade, but the reason I'll keep watching is Eddie Izzard.

In The Midst of Galactic Civil War

Three friends from work and I started a game of Star Wars - Imperial Assault today. This was my first experience with a tabletop RPG and it happened to be Star Wars themed, which was a major bonus. Great "DM", great scenarios, great fun!

Turns Out Snowpiercer is the Bioshock 3 Gamers Have Been Waiting For

Leave a Comment

Joon-ho Bong's American film debut, Snowpiercer, has been on my watchlist since it was first announced back in 2012. Long before all of the studio edits and other movie biz controversy that ultimately postponed the film's initial theater run and long before Chris Evans dazzled everyone in ...Winter Soldier.

Recently, I sat down (finally) to watch the film via Netflix Watch Instantly and to my delight, I loved it. It contains all of the nuanced set/costume design, insane asian influence and powerful characterizations that get me excited about the art of filmmaking.

But even more interesting, looking back the one thing that struck me most about Snowpiercer, is how much its themes mirror those of video games. Primarily I'm thinking about Bioshock and Bioshock: Infinite. In fact, since seeing the movie I've taken to lovingly referring to the film as "Bioshock: Snowpiercer", or "Bioshock 3".

The question I want answered now though, is why the hell didn't someone tell me go see "Bioshock: Snowpiercer" back when it was still in theaters?

Been Reading The Walking Dead...

I have finally gotten back into the habit of reading The Walking Dead again, along with a few other comic series I've been reading over the past year off-and-on.

Watching the TV series, I'd forgotten how nuanced and emotional the writing of this graphic novel can be. Hollywood has a tendency to crank the "oh-shit-o-meter" up to eleven when a few well written words would suffice.

My Mea Culpa To The Rah-Rah Raisin Cookie

Leave a Comment

Since the new flavors of Girl Scout cookies were announced, I have stood firm in the belief that "Rah-Rah Raisin" was indeed a terrible addition to the amazing and well loved stable of GS cookies.

I took this stance, despite my own affection for a well made oatmeal raisin cookie. I not only assumed the worst, but also discouraged others from partaking in, what, as it turns out--is a fantastic take on the classic OMC.

Time To Go Back To Black

Orphan Black might end up being my favorite show of all time if the second season manages to be as exciting as the first. If you have not watched it, check it out on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

I love it when a restaurant manages to take your expectations and not just meet them, but take them out for a romantic night on the town followed by some heavy petting.

It's Been a Long Time, I Shouldn't Have Left You...

It's been a long time and a lot has changed, but I finally realized the simple truth. There is no spoon and everything my life has been missing, was always right here on Blogger.
