What I Watched/Listened To On My Summer Vacation

31 Aug

Stewart here…

Summer used to be a great time to catch up on things I missed in the fall and spring, and while I can still do that to a certain extent, the summer has been doling out quality stuff on its own. So here’s a brief list of some things you might want to get on the bus for that I did this summer: Continue reading

Stargate SG-1 Minicaps / Season 5, Eps. 21-22 and Season Five Highlights

25 Aug
The Stargate SG-1 Season Two Minicaps only used that extra Gate once, and it was for business purposes only.

The Stargate SG-1 Season Five Minicaps is just going to try and pretend that one character’s demise is going to last. Spoilers: it doesn’t.

In the fight for the galaxy this season, Anubis is an old/new player that has shifted power dramatically. With most of SG-1’s allies either gone or on the fences, you’d think things wouldn’t get worse. Well, they do. And that’s after the team itself takes a heartbreaking loss… Continue reading

So Who Is Watching SUMMERSLAM 2015 Today?

23 Aug

As I write this there are still a few hours before the show begins… and I cannot believe I am excited to watch WWE. This will be the third WWE thing I have ever seen. The first was two weeks ago when Stephen Amell (“Oliver Queen” on Arrow) apppeared on WWE RAW. He ended up in the ring beating “Stardust” and being pulled off by “security”.  Continue reading

The X-MEN Movie: 15 Years Later

21 Aug


Stewart here…

Considering the output of comic book movies this year has been ranging from good (Kingsman, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man) to bad (Fantastic Four), its important to remember a time when a superhero movie was a rarity. And in most cases, that rarity was more watered down versions of the core concept than a faithful adaptation. Cut to 1999, when director Bryan Singer was starting work on a big-budget adaptation of one of Marvel’s most popular batch of characters, the mutant heroes, the X-Men. That movie, released in the summer of 2000, was X-Men. Continue reading

Fantastic Four… why it failed to impress

19 Aug
Authors Note: I’ve not yet read the comics but I do have the Ultimate run to read as I travel the US in a couple weeks. I do have some knowledge of the FF but not much when it comes to the villains and supporting characters. Editors NoteWoohoo! Here’s an actual review of the recent Fantastic Four film. Poor Lee was so traumatized by it… I had to coerce him to write this just so we’d all understand why the Roger Corman film is better.


I’ll start off with what I enjoyed because there’s not much. Continue reading

Stargate SG-1 Minicaps / Season 5, Eps. 17-20

17 Aug
The Stargate SG-1 Season Two Minicaps only used that extra Gate once, and it was for business purposes only.

The Stargate SG-1 Season Five Minicaps will just kick back, watch its DVD of Armageddon, and be right here waiting.

Stewart here…

Last time, SG-1 finally discovered who has been responsible for the attacks on their allies. Well, surprise it not being Apophis (he’s still dead), but its Anubis, the oldest System Lord in existence. He’s back from wherever he’s been to consolidate control of the System Lords and take over the galaxy. With him decimating the Tollans and striking a crippling blow against the Tok’ra, its only a matter of time before Earth is next! Continue reading

Fantastic Four is a bit less fantastic than promised

11 Aug

3810641-nerdbastards.com_2This is not a review. It would be a review but the only crew member willing to waste the money to see the new Fantastic Four film was too traumatized to write anything.

Seriously. Continue reading

Stargate SG-1 Minicaps / Season 5, Eps. 13-16

9 Aug
The Stargate SG-1 Season Two Minicaps only used that extra Gate once, and it was for business purposes only.

The Stargate SG-1 Season Five Minicaps never got an E-Vite to the big System Lord get together. Oh well, their loss.

Stewart here…

SG-1 had to deal with one of their most advanced allies, the Tollans, being taken out by a Goa’uld invasion force. What they don’t know is the mastermind of this attack is an unknown System Lord, but has Tanith (Teal’c’s nemesis) under his/her wing. So who is this new big player in the events of the show? Well, let’s get some answers in this round of Minicaps… Continue reading

Television Graveyard- plot 13, Birds of Prey

7 Aug

Towards the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the WB* attempted to keep the Girl Power strong with their network by bringing in some DC characters. After all, the WB was riding high on Smallville‘s success. They still had Charmed, but they seemed to want some ladies who kicked ass, without the cartoony silliness the Halliwell sisters sometimes got into- I don’t mock, still love Charmed!

*yes, I know that Buffy was on UPN for it’s last two years, but we all know the WB still thought of it as their baby.

What they got was thirteen episodes of what could’ve been awesome.


‘Could’ve been’ being the operative phrase. Of course, the fact that I own the DVDs also says that while the show wasn’t great, Birds of Prey was a lot of fun. And it had so much potential. Continue reading
