Movie Review: Fantastic 4

Movie Review: Fantastic 4

For being as much of a fan of superhero movies as I am, it will shock and disappoint you all to know I haven’t seen the first two Fantastic Four movies. I know. I’m sure you’re devastated in my love of superheroes to skip what I have heard are two of the worst superhero movies ever. But, I decided to give this a chance, even if it doesn’t have Michael Chiklis in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-BVs-KCSiA So where to start…ummm…okay…the trailer is pretty good?  Although, the Honest Trailer is even better. Admittedly, I didn’t hate it, but I certainly didn’t love it. Fantastic 4 has the problem that I have noticed with...

Mothers of the Throne

Mothers of the Throne

With Mother’s Day around the corner, what better way to celebrate mothers than thinking about the women giving life and protecting those vying for the Iron Throne. While my preferences might disagree with yours, I have ranked the mothers from least to most favorite. Feel free to add your own ideas into the comments. Here we go! 7. Cersei Mama Lion will do anything to protect her cubs. Including preparing to poison them before the enemy can get to them (you got lucky, Tommen. Joffrey, no one cares about you.) But at this point, her cubs are dropping like flies. How much fiercer will the mama lion get to keep what’s left of her...

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 2: “Home”

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 2: “Home”

*This post contains spoilers* (Obviously) After last weeks fairly placid episode, which just established the new season, we knew that the second episode would pack a punch and it didn’t disappoint. With the absence of Danearys in this weeks episode, the story lines were concentrated on the Kingdoms of Westeros culminating in a nerve-wracking finale at Castle Black…but we’ll get to that. Time Travelling Bran Bran’s back! Having not seen him at all in the last season, its lovely to see him again, all grown up and in the company of the three eyed raven. Last time we saw him, he was tailoring his ability to go into the...

Silicon Valley: “Two in the Box”

Silicon Valley: “Two in the Box”

If you missed last week, catch up on our episode review here. You know, when I sat down to watch this episode, I had a lot of thoughts about what I might see. I wondered if I would see conflict between Richard and the new CEO. I wondered if I would see Erlich feeling left behind. I saw all that, and more than I could ever imagine. I think I’m traumatized… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfVOui1Xgng The episode has some emotional turns for Richard as he questions his trust in the new CEO Jack Barker (played by Stephen Tobolowsky).  That is some great casting.  Tobolowsky is a fantastic actor, but right now, I’m questioning...

Oprah Winfrey to Star in HBO Films: THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS

Wolfe From His Screenplay; Based On “The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks,” By Rebecca Skloot; Executive Produced By Oprah...

THE LEFTOVERS Season Three Australia Bound

THE LEFTOVERS Season Three Australia Bound

If you think about THE LEFTOVERS it makes perfect sense. The show is heading for Australia in its final season. After all, there have been a few references throughout the show regarding The Land Down Under, so something is going on there. The Hollywood Reporter broke the exclusive and stated – Sources say the third and final season of the HBO drama will take place in Australia, both on- and off-screen, due to an upcoming storyline in the show. Production will pick up where it left off last season in Austin, Texas, before going down under. From Season Two this writer can readily recall two incidents linked to Australia. The first took place...

Silicon Valley Season Three Premiere: “Founder Friendly”

Silicon Valley Season Three Premiere: “Founder Friendly”

At the end of last season, we saw Pied Piper’s triumph over Hooli, triumph over technology (small house fire excluded) but not triumph over business as Raviga voted to remove our boy Richard as CEO of his own company.  Douche move, boss chick.  Especially because, though he’s not business savvy, Richard has kept this stuff together (mostly) and did his best to put Pied Piper on the map.  Sure there were obstacles and mishaps, but that is true of any business venture.  So what does the new season have in store as Richard is removed from the CEO position? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qm6EBzbisjQ In the season opener, we catch up...

Game Of Thrones Season 6, Episode 1: “The Red Woman”

Game Of Thrones Season 6, Episode 1: “The Red Woman”

Its that time of year again, the time in which we all fall in love with characters, and possibilities only to see them ripped away from us in a brutal show of callousness. If you hadn’t guessed already its Game Of Thrones time yet again, and this season has started off expertly. JON SNOW IS…. Dead,very dead, super dead, totally not moving, and is a corpse this whole episode dead. Yet I wouldn’t count out Jon yet, there still the possibility of fire based resurrection, but for this episode, he is for all extensive purposes DEAD. This leads to some of the best elements of the episode, and some really intriguing ideas being...
