The Rocketeer

Disney’s First Avenger Back in 1991, long before Disney had any notion of one day buying Marvel, the company released a movie based on a little-known comic book superhero: The Rocketeer. I won’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of this film, especially since the 1991 Disney film most people are familiar with is Beauty […]

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy – the latest entry in Marvel’s ever-expanding Cinematic universe – is a movie that doesn’t feel like it belongs in 2014. Sure, it has some of the trappings of a modern movie, including copious and frequently gorgeous CGI as well as highly quotable dialogue; however, it also feels like a throwback […]

My Top 10 Movies of 2011

One of my favorite blog posts of last year  was about my Top 10 movies of 2010. At the time, I intended to make the article an annual feature, compiling the films (new and old) that left the biggest impression on me during the previous year. I even went as far as compiling my 2011 […]

So I Saw The Hunger Games This Weekend…

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been really hyped-up for a movie. I’m pretty sure Captain America was the last one, and thankfully that came close to living up to my expectations. After reading reading The Hunger Games novel back in November, the movie adaptation quickly shot up to the top of my list […]

The Trouble With Tablets (And Reviewing Them)

As you’ve no doubt guessed, I’ve been spending copious hours with my brand new Kindle Fire since it was released last month. During this period, I’ve been gathering and organizing my thoughts about the device in the hopes of reviewing it. However, that turned out to be a much more difficult task than I originally […]

My Top 10 Movies of 2010 (With a Twist!)

The past year has been incredible for me personally. I know I saw more movies in 2010 then in any year previously, between the many nights I spent over the summer at the drive-in or the multitude of DVDs Netflix sent me (I got my subscription last January). Of course, not everything I watched this […]

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

As you already know, Bee and I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World for my birthday last week. Since then, I’ve been getting lots of requests for my thoughts on the film, and as much as I love Twitter, microblogging seems to be inadequate for this purpose. I don’t typically review movies (nor do I […]

Because This One Goes to 11

So here we are at the end of another decade. For my personal gaming life, the “aughts” have been particularly significant, as I spent most of the 90s forced to play videogames at the houses of friends and relatives until I got a Nintendo 64 in 1998. Even then though, I bought a total of […]
