The Lyrid meteor shower will peak in the early morning hours of April 22nd. However, the glow of the full moon will make it difficult to see many of the meteors this year. [Read more…]
Oh to be young, handsome, in the City of Angels, and in love. Being the Devil doesn’t hurt, either.
The premise of Lucifer is simple – it’s Death Takes a Holiday crossed with your choice of Castle, Sleepy Hollow, or Elementary. [Read more…]

Peggy Carter is fast becoming one of my all-time favorite Marvel heroes. And Agent Carter Season Two is the reason why.
Agent Carter follows the exploits and adventures of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), she of the first Captain America movie, aka Cap’s first true love. But Peggy was then and is now not just someone’s “best girl”. She’s smart, savvy, brave, bold, adventuresome, and a hero in her own right. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren discuss “Batman vs Superman”, talking about their expectations going into seeing the film, especially their reservations about some previous portrayals of Batman and Superman. [Read more…]
It’s hard to criticize the movie’s plot or story because there really isn’t one. It’s just a series of events that have been arranged in chronological order. Director Zack Snyder had (or more likely was given) a list of events that had to be shown in this film to set up the new DC Extended Universe, and he was ticking them off, one by one.

I looked forward to watching it every week, and I’m sure I’ll buy the Blu-ray when it’s released. This is a show I carried with me while it aired, and now that it’s over, I frequently think back on it. I love the characters. They are wonderful people. I wish they were real and that I could join them on their adventures. Despite its flaws, The Shannara Chronicles invites you into a fantastical world that you will never want to leave. [Read more…]
For his first film, Director Dan Trachtenberg hits a home run with this anxiety ridden thriller. “The Cellar”, written by John Campbell and Matt Stuecken was the foundation for 10 Cloverfield Lane. The team responsible for discovering this story and bringing it the big screen must be commended! [Read more…]
Galavant Season Two is fun, funny, tuneful, and, at its core, extremely romantic. For me it’s an absolute must see and I have all the digits crossed that we’ll get Season Three sooner as opposed to later. [Read more…]
400 Days never seems to decide what sort of film it wants to be. The claustrophobia of the simulator is well rendered, and the breakdown of relations amongst the crew feels real. But other elements — and frequent shots of CCTV cameras tracking the characters — would suggest that the story is about how people unravel under unrelenting boredom. [Read more…]
Following on the very successful heels of Frozen and Big Hero 6, both of which dealt with important societal issues in an entertaining way, I’m hoping that Zootopia succeeds and succeeds well. [Read more…]
Skywatchers in parts of Asia and Australia will witness a partial solar eclipse on the morning of March 9th, while some in Alaska and Hawaii could see a bite taken out of the Sun before sunset on March 8th. [Read more…]
