I just finished watching Apollo 18 on Netflix while doing some research. I’m glad I had the research to keep my mind occupied because I would have been bored out of my skull otherwise. Extremely predictable story, poor execution, and a bad imitation of “The Blair Witch Project”  style of “found footage” camera shots. Anyone […]

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Friday , 23, May 2014 Comments Off on X-Men: Days Of Future Past

After work this afternoon I rushed to the closest theater showing X-Men: Days Of Future Past, got my ticket and settled in with about 150 other movie-goers to watch the latest incarnation of the mutant franchise on the silver screen. I was and am a huge fan of the original comic book storyline that took […]

Friday , 21, March 2014 Comments Off on Captain America’s To Do List – Star Wars Vs. Star Trek

Two days ago I was watching the first 11 minutes of the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie that opens two weeks from today. In the opening scene we find out that Cap, aka Steve Rogers, who is trying to catch up on recent history and pop culture following his 70-year suspended animation, has […]

Over at Mental Floss, they have a post up about “50 Things That Turn 50 in 2014” and there are some really cool things listed that are turning 50 this year. I turned 9 years old in 1964, so I remember most of these (obviously NOT things like who was born that year) and thought […]

I was reading an article about an otter attacking and killing an alligator in the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in Florida (who knew those sweet looking little otters could be so deadly?) and someone posted this trailer for the new movie, “Zombeavers”, in the comments. It’s silly looking, but also kind of funny, and […]

Happiness Is The Truth

I didn’t go see the Despicable Me 2 movie (nor have I seen the first Despicable Me film) but while watching ABC World News with David Muir tonight, he played a clip and mentioned that this video by Pharrell Williams from the Despicable Me 2 movie soundtrack has been nominated for best original song at […]

Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer

Wednesday , 19, February 2014 Comments Off on Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer

I’ve read very few of the original (1969) Guardians of the Galaxy comic books and mostly knew about them from their meeting of the Avengers in “The Korvac Saga” which spanned issues #167 through 177 of the Avengers’ comic book in 1978. I’ve never read any of the new (2008) version of the Guardians of […]
