#BattleshipLoveBlog

Last night I decided to watch BATTLESHIP, which is a mostly terrible movie that is full of big, stupid fun. I knew almost immediately that I was going to love hating this movie so I decided to do an impromptu live blog on App.net of my thoughts as I watched it. I’ve reposted the results […]

On Star Wars, the prequels, and fatherhood

It’s been a long time since I’ve actually sat down to watch The Holy Trilogy. I don’t mean that it’s been a year or two. I mean that it’s been years. I’ve watched an episode here or there when I was trying to get my son interested, but he always had more interest in Star Wars […]

Adventures in iPad ownership / Happy Geekend, everyone!

A little over a week ago, I picked up a new iPad. I have had the original for about a year, but have spent little time with it myself, as it was a family device and my children had laid claim to the majority of it’s faculties. While I was still able to check out […]

Donate to L5, Or: How I Learned to Stop Complaining and Crowdfund Science Fiction

Yesterday, I posted an entry about L5, a completely crowd-funded sci-fi series pilot. I received an excellent comment from another fan that brought me some excellent information. It seems that L5′s first episode has already reached over a million downloads! That’s pretty impressive. Unfortunately, it seems that there have only been a little over $7,500 […]

L5 – a crowd-funded pilot episode for a sci-fi series

I’m a sucker for science fiction. I have been since childhood. I grew up staring at the TV with lightsabers  humming and lasers blasts caroming around trash compactors all day long. I loved Battlestar Galactica, despite its incredibly cheesy everything. As I got older, I continued to check out every sci-fi show I could, despite […]

Scary Movie Month – Day 31 – Evil Dead 2 & Army of Darkness

I have watched Evil Dead 2 (iTunes) and Army of Darkness (iTunes) a number of times, but what makes them so enjoyable, is watching them again and again to find new things to enjoy. Not that the movie is filled with subtlety. But rather, there are amazing things happening all the time, that your brain […]

Scary Movie Month – Day 30 – The Thing

The Thing (iTunes) is one of those movies that I saw parts of when I was a child and remembered it being awesome, but never found the opportunity to sit down and watch it from the beginning. John Carpenter made a name for himself in the late 70s and early 80s thanks to films like […]
