Man of Steel, take 2

30 Nov

The other day I was sitting around with a friend who admitted he had not seen the recent Superman film, Man of Steel. I saw it in the theater when it came out- didn’t love it- but I had recently gotten the blu-ray (not because I felt it had likely improved or that my opinion had changed but because I own all the Superman films, even Quest for Peace) and it was determined that we should watch it. So we did.

My opinion has not changed; it still isn’t a good Superman film. Continue reading

Giving Thanks

28 Nov

Today in the United States is a day set aside as a day to give thanks and be with family and friends. As I firmly believe you should be thankful everyday, I prefer to take Thanksgiving as a time spent with family. However, I wanted to take a few minutes to make a list of some of the many things I am thankful for-

Long Beach Comic Con… it’s all about the Bat Nipples.

26 Nov

What? You didn’t spend your weekend talking about bat nipples with random strangers? Well, then… you are missing out. There was also a conversation about Wolverine and self-love but I’ll leave that to your imaginations.

The simple fact is I went to Long Beach Comic Con this weekend and had a lot of fun.  Continue reading

Theatrical Reminiscences and Meanderings

24 Nov

Recently, while speaking to an acquaintance, I learned that he had never been to a play. That day was his 31st birthday and he was going to see his first play that evening. This kind of blew my mind because I have been attending theatrical productions as long as I can remember. My first “job” was working technical positions for the local amateur theatre company.

ARROW Season 2×07, “State vs. Queen” recap

22 Nov

Welcome back to the party, Arrow-heads!  A quick recap of things to know: Moira is about to go to trial for her involvement in the destruction in the Glades, Laurel assigns herself to the prosecution to “help Moira” (to the gas chamber if her pill popping catches up with her decision making), and Count Vertigo from season one is still in prison, and probably still quite insane.  So, let’s jump right in… Continue reading

Long Beach Comic-con

20 Nov

This weekend is Long Beach Comic-con. NerdLush will be in attendance. It’s our first time. Our friend Steve Scott will be there (very excited as we haven’t gotten together in a few years!).

I’m itching to get some new interviews, so hopefully we’ll be able to make that happen while we are there. Fingers Crossed!

It’s seems like there should be plenty of fun cosplayers. And the guest list looks pretty good. So… I’m excited. Or not… as I’m sure to not get a lot of rest. But… that’s fun too.

Fall TV Winners & Losers- what are your thoughts?

16 Nov

So it’s that time of year where we must reflect on the new fall television series and determine which ones are worth watching. I, personally, have not watched very many new ones- and certainly not for more than one or two episodes- so I am very interested to hear opinions.

Shall we begin? Continue reading

ARROW Season 2×06, “Keep Your Enemies Closer” recap

14 Nov

Welcome back, Arrow-heads!  A little catch up on things pertinent to this episode: Diggle is still looking for Deadshot, and has asked for the help of his government agent friend Lyla to help find him.  Roy has sworn off going out to fight crime on his own for Thea, but is still helping Ollie gather intel on his quest to fight crime.  And in those island flashbacks, Ollie’s been reunited with Sara Lance, but that reunion involves her kicking him in the face.  So, let’s see what’s going on… Continue reading

My non-spoilery THOR: THE DARK WORLD review

12 Nov

Look, if you haven’t seen Thor: the Dark World yet, you really need to. I mean, if you like superhero movies. I won’t spoil you with any details here- but the gist of my review is that if you like this sort of thing, you should go see it.
