Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter G

14 Feb

Went somewhere completely different this week- Green Room. I really can’t describe this one… in some ways it went how I thought it would but in most- holy crap! I picked this one solely for the cast and basically had no idea what I was getting into…

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter F

7 Feb

Trying something new this week with a return to a genre style and a young adult novel turned film, The 5th Wave. I guess I could use this as a random film, but 5th starts with F and there ya go. Besides my other choice was too similar to a couple of the previous films… so I thought I’d switch it up a little.

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter E

1 Feb

And we’re back… I’m continuing the sports trend from D, but this time I went indie- Everybody Wants Some!!. This is billed as Richard Linklater’s  follow-up film to Dazed & Confused and Boyhood. Not a sequel mind you, these are different characters… but sort of a continuation of the maturation of a young man…

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter D

25 Jan

For the fourth installment I chose Draft Day. This movie has been sitting on my shelf, in my “to be watched” pile since it’s release. But much like the “to be read” pile beside my bed, that pile just keeps getting higher and higher and this one keeps getting further from the top.

Here we go again! For the third installment, we’ll be watching Constantine. I almost chose Cellular, but since I just watched a Chris Evans film, I decided to go with this older film that I’ve had sitting on the shelf for… years. I know! I suck!

My thoughts on ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY!

5 Jan

Stewart here…

Some heavy SPOILERS within…

As I had NO TIME this holiday season to do it, I now have finally watched the first of the Star Wars spinoff movies, ROGUE ONE.  My early thoughts are that I enjoyed seeing a different look into the Star Wars universe that had nothing to do with the Skywalker clan (well, except for one significant appearance and one fleeting one), and for the most part, I thought it was a solid movie.  I’m not sure about it being all that kid-friendly (which we will discuss why further), but I legit enjoyed ROGUE ONE, even though I think there are one or two brief bits of fan service that seemed really unnecessary.  But, how about we skip the long write-up, and break down the good and bad of this movie point by point?

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter A

3 Jan

Starting a new series of posts this year… the goal being a post every week. I’ll be doing a movie review of sorts, picking a title out of my DVD collection (at least until I run out of titles!) that I’ve never seen… and each week I’ll be following the alphabet. So… to start off, I’m picking Austenland. Continue reading

Why After 50 Years, STAR TREK Is Still Important

8 Sep

20160908-031009.jpg

Stewart here…

For many nerds like me, and I assume you for reading this, this week is a particularly important one for us. This week (or specifically September 8th) marks the first airing of the original Star Trek TV series, all the way back in September 8th, 1966. That episode, “The Man Trap”, wasn’t even the first produced episode for the show, but the network scheduled it as the series premiere. Watching it even now as I assumed back then for many viewers at the time, you would find it hard to believe this would create a multitude of series, movies, novels, and comic books that would last through half a century. Yet it has, and through all of the high and lows, somehow persevered through now generations of fans. Continue reading
