Wherein I remember that I kinda ripped off PBS.
I saw The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and I’m reading a fiction book with real words and without pictures.
So I saw Birdman.
On a very particular storytelling trick.
Also: I hate Daylight Saving Time.
Big Hero Six was surprisingly thin. (Warning, contains spoilers)
Sleepy Hollow musings and Oscar Predictions. (Not in the same paragraph)
Jaybird is in the middle of finishing up the last season of Burn Notice and has a handful of impressions. (Warning, will contain some very mild spoilers.)
We may have found the most awesome children’s book *EVER*.
The *NON* Superbowl thread. Instead, we can talk about the whole Game of Thrones thing. (Warning, contains spoilers of stuff that happened years ago.)
Tonight is the Royal Rumble!
The whole “Huh. I’m surprised that they got this guy to play a bit part” thing.
The Black Friday to the Oscars’ Christmas, The Golden Globes, is having its big shindig tonight. Predictions?
The experience of getting back into a show after putting it down.
So I was reading the “best of the year” list and I realized that I didn’t really even recognize any of the shows.
When the site is down, you’d think that you’d get more television in.
Peter Jackson’s As Inspired By JRR Tolkien’s Middle Earth Fantasy Product gets released on the 17th.
Apparently, they’re doing a Starsy Warsy kinda thing in a year.
Two men enter. One man leaves.
A moment spent remembering the days of UHF Kung Fu movies.
The difference between The Equalizer and John Wick.
Now that you have your hour back, you should watch some television with it.
100 Bullets asks if we’re willing to push the red button. Also, Person of Interest brings back the opening to The A-Team.
I can say, without hyperbole, that The Equalizer is the greatest movie in human history.
Dead Snow, if you weren’t aware, was one of those high concept splat films: You’re in Norway. You’re skiing. YOU FIND NAZI ZOMBIES.
Well, there’s a sequel.
Creepy dolls. What is it with filmmakers and creepy dolls?
So I have heard rumors about this new procedural taking place in the Bat-universe…
The curious charisma of action heroes (or lack thereof).
Nothing ages faster than realistic depictions of the cutting edge.
The new Astro City is out! Well, it’s been out. I bought it!
If you’ve been wondering whatever happened to Jackie Chan movies, I’ve found them in Bollywood. (Chennai Express reviewed!)
Technically, having a guy show up in Act V, Scene 5 to say “the bad guy from Act I, Scene 1 who put all this in motion has changed his mind!” *IS* kinda lazy writing.
If I may veer off into some political territory, let me just say that the trailer for the movie “Let’s Be Cops” struck me as kinda tasteless way back in June when I first saw it.
I’ll admit it. I have no plans to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I’m going to see Guardians of the Galaxy today! So let’s talk about that.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
True Detective has been watched. Spoiler-free review: it’s not bad. Warning, major spoilers in the post itself.
