I saw this Saturday afternoon and have been turning it over in my head since. I .... didn't hate it? I by default have high expectations of Nolan, and more often than not, he at least meets those. I think this one falls short of those, despite having… [more]

All I want in life is for Cooper to tell me that I too have a heart of gold. All other feelings I have about the episode this week are still in the "incoherent hollering" phase, so I don't even know. That was .... a lot. [more]

Todd VanDerWerff managed to boil my whole relationship with the show down to a single tweet: "Game of Thrones is now a show about the impossibility of making Game of Thrones a show. It’s most interesting as meta-story, to me at least… [more]

I feel like given my relative remove from the show that I should state my groundless, wild-ass theory about where we're headed: Via some means or other, Winter King and his dragon winter south, turn basically all of King's Landijf and Cersei becomes… [more]

I wonder how those three would be portrayed had the book been written more recently. Would the New Gods be less White, more queer? I think those would be separate gods, and generally lesser ones given the smaller population(s) believing… [more]

Bad game, bad design, randomball placement of items, one-shot kills from distance, skill matters less in this game than in almost any other FPS I have ever played -- going all the way back to Wolfenstein 3D. They managed to pretty… [more]

This movie is a Samsung-branded pile of trash, but man did I have fun watching it. I wish I'd had some drinks first. The biggest compliment I can pay it is that Giacchino's score, while incorporating some of Williams' iconic bits doesn't lean too… [more]

Vulcan was a god of fucking Invention. America's been at the forefront of a lot of areas of invention, but where more than weapons? That this incarnation of Vulcan would hunker down where he's at felt pretty okay to me. [more]
