Once again, thanks Netflix. (Other streaming services are available)
I typed half of this review with a Pringles tube stuck on the end of my arm. Yes, I’m that guy.
And so, another week comes to a close with some delicious blood and guts. We’re in the final countdown folks; barely 50 days left in the year. Can you stick it out with me? There’s no way I’m quitting now.
Without Joss Whedon and his chums at Marvel, Disney would be hurting pretty bad in the bank accounts this year, thanks to the unexpected failure of today’s film. Is it as bad as their massive financial loss might have you believe? I say nay. It could have been better though.
Au Revoir folks. Bit of a while since my last review, this is due to me and the old ball ‘n chain having a mild Big Bang Theory addiction and watching it repeatedly. Anyhoo, when this popped up on the telly, she exclaimed that it was a weird film, so I had to watch it. Enjoy
Today’s flick is easily the most WTF movie I have watched for WTF Sunday in quite a few months. But is it any good? Well, yes and no.
This one’s for all the Beavis and Butthead fans out there in Internetville…
There has been a bit of an upswing in quality in the last few years when it comes to science fiction movies. Today’s film from 2011 had the potential to be among the best. Did it fulfil that potential?
The column is a little late again today. I didn’t fall asleep this time though (okay, I did, but only for a short while). Today’s tardiness is the result of falling into a good, old-fashioned Wiki hole. I could have been in there for days just reading up on these two leads.
Day 250. Woo and indeed hoo.
I remember being quite excited to see Legion when the first trailers started appearing back in 2009. The whole idea of an angel on the run from his own kind with a big knife and a bag full of automatic weapons was just too badass to ignore. And then the trailers made way for the reviews and comments from folks who had actually seen it; comments that were almost universally damning. While I wasn’t swayed entirely, at least my eagerness had been tempered. It has taken two years to finally get around to it, and here we are. I’m doing another live commentary today on the film described by Wikipedia as (deep breath) an apocalyptic, supernatural, biblical, action, fantasy, thriller.
