Star Wars: A Teaser Awakens

Hey! I’m back! I wrote a bunch of words. 50,223 of them to be exact. Yes some of them repeated, and they repeated a lot more often than I really wanted, but that’s okay I’m a two-time NaNoWriMo winner. While I was in my self-imposed blogging isolation, a lot of things happened, but it probably would have been a terrible time for me to be blogging anyway. The Windows 10 Preview nearly self-destructed with buggy preview updates. And then got fixed just in time for me to come back. A new book about the most infamous guy to ever blow … Read more…

Review of a Preview – The Avengers 2: The Age of Ultron

Okay, I’ll admit it. I was really skeptical about this one. I was never really that stoked on yet another “man creates machine to protect man but the machine realizes man is the biggest threat to man and therefore destroys man” kind of plot. I’m even kind of tired of the “AI goes crazy psycho and kills people” plot. According to Hollywood, whenever any human makes a technological achievement, it will always fail on them. Because that’s how science works, amirite? No. It’s not. I always loved Tony Stark more than Iron Man because Tony Stark was just was brilliant … Read more…

Star Wars Rebels

This is a wonderful time to be a Star Wars fan. Why? Because Disney owns Star Wars, and they’re going to make damn sure that they inundate us with as much Star Wars content as they can. For those who look at that last statement and immediately feel either ill or afraid, calm thyself. Disney is not what it used to be, it is much better. If you need any proof of this sort, just realize that Disney is currently responsible for most Marvel franchises. So let me list the amount of film awesomeness that has been created under the … Read more…

How to Critique

In lieu of actual examples, and due to the seriousness of the subject matter, I’m inundating you with kittens Normally, this website doesn’t deal a lot in criticism, other than pointing out complaints in things that I do actually love. But don’t you think that I don’t believe in criticism. Criticism can be very useful and can help consumers to make useful decision. Consumer and professional criticism can even get a company to change its product for the better (or worse…). But with the power of community forums and social media, the greater public has been given the power that … Read more…

Guardians of the Galaxy

So, we have yet another group of Marvel superheroes. And this movie, like all other recent Marvel movies since Robert Downey Jr.’s incredible first appearance as the engineering genius under the metal suit, shows how much Marvel is dominating this genre. While DC struggles to shove as many superheroes into its “dark and gritty” superbat clown car as it can, Marvel is raking in the profits with a series of movies that are actually fun. With Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel takes full advantage of the comic series’ sci-fi genre by drop kicking the audience into its expansive comic book … Read more…

The Amazing Spider Man 2

It’s been a great year for geeky movie fans. It’s been a great year for people who love well done movies. For once, both of those fans are seeing the same movies. I mean in the last few weeks alone we got a fantastic X-Men movie, a Godzilla reboot, and a new Spiderman movie. But since I have a day job that robs my soul of energy most days of the week and because I don’t get paid for this stuff, I always have to make some decisions. There’s just so much good stuff around. However, some stuff is better … Read more…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I know what you’re thinking: “Yeah, yeah, yeah. I heard that movie is awesome. It’s awesomeness is all over the place. Whatever.” But do you truly know how good this movie is? If you haven’t seen it, then you don’t. Which is why you should see it. But I want to give you more than just vague reasons that may or may not resemble some semblance of logic. This is not a review, because I don’t do reviews. When people do reviews, they try REAALLY hard to find this that are bad about something because they want to seem unbiased. … Read more…
