Rejoice, my brethren, for this is the Deadpool movie we have all been waiting and hoping for! This movie was flat out awesome. It was like seeing the comics come to life – breaking of the fourth wall, crazed hallucination sequences, blood, violence, sex, jokes, sight gags – and all of it ratcheted up to eleven. All the fun, all the action, all the Deadpool. [Read more…]
Supergirl, just like its home city, is definitely on the sunny side of the superhero street, but I like that and it’s a relief to see people who smile more than they frown. Yes, it’s somewhat campy, but so is The Flash and that’s fine. They can’t all be Arrow and Gotham, at least not for me. I’ve enjoyed every episode and can’t wait for more. Long may Supergirl fly.

Can a sleeper Sci-Fi movie capture an audience? It’s not unusual, but these days it feels like a rarity. With sci-fi like “The Martian” garnering Oscar nominations, do films like “Synchronicity” have a shot?
Well, some films do, but I’m not sure “Synchronicity” is going to be one of them. [Read more…]
Taken on it’s own, Fall of Reach is an interesting story, that like I said has a lot of the movie Soldier in it, along with inspiration from other great sci-fi works. There are nods to Starship Troopers (the book), War of the Worlds, and others. Seeing what the characters had to go through as they made their way through training kept me interested as did Halsey’s own internal conflict about what she was doing to these children. [Read more…]
Like most Pixar films, The Good Dinosaur is filled with emotional moments of life and death scenarios. I believe this is why so many Pixar movie’s connect with people. They’re filled with reality based elements that touch the hearts of everyone. The Good Dinosaur is successful in embracing this formula and for better or worse deserves to rub elbows with other Pixar movies. [Read more…]
A story about emerging consciousness wrapped as a noir psychological thriller, Uncanny toys with the notions of humanity and emotions while bringing up a handful of other uncomfortable behaviors.
Warning: there are harsh opinions and likely some spoilers involved regarding the ending of this film, so proceed accordingly. [Read more…]
This movie was all formula, twist included.The problem with that is they allowed me to notice how ridiculous certain things were. But it’s still a typical Bond movie: lots of action, amazing stunts, cackling bad guys, beautiful women, and Bond doing Bond things for Queen, Country, and MI6. If you like spy movies, then you probably like James Bond, and that means, issues or not, you’ll probably enjoy this movie. Issues and all, I did. [Read more…]
While Live-Evil doesn’t have the quotability or more renegade sense of campy fun that subtle horror spoofs like Slither enjoy, it absolutely carves out its own niche as a film that genre fans must see, and newcomers will absolutely enjoy. [Read more…]

If Archer and Miami Vice had a baby, gave that baby nothing but hard drugs, had that baby live in a world designed by Patrick Nagel (who designed the iconic Duran Duran “Rio” album cover), and hired South Park to be the baby’s sitter, that baby would be named Moonbeam City. [Read more…]
In the halls of Doctor Who fandom, along with that legendary scarf, the name of Douglas Adams goes hand in hand with that of Tom Baker. Adams, known for his Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy books, started with Doctor Who. Specifically, Adams is best known among Whovians for having an authorial hand in three well known Fourth Doctor stories: The Pirate Planet, Shada, and City of Death, which has only recently found its way into bookstores as a novelization penned by James Goss.
