Rather than writing a review or recap of the satisfying finale of AMC’s hit Breaking Bad, I decided to share my thoughts and opinions on what some people might be going through, or about to go through. Let’s call it, withdrawal, or filling a void. It’s something that happens anytime a beloved show ends and all fans of that show cope together. I don’t think the 5 stages of grief applies to TV show but this is a start on getting over the sadness of your favorite show ending. (more…)

Monday night will prove itself to be a busy night for television thanks to the addition The Blacklist starring the brilliant James Spader, last seen creeping out the employees of The Office. I’m calling it now, Emmy nomination for Mr. Spader for his role as a well connected, highly intelligent criminal, on par with network mate Dr. Hannibal Lector, minus the desire to eat people. (more…)

Title: Sleepy Hollow
When/Where: 9PM, FOX
Original prediction: Cancelled
On 2nd thought: DVR season pass/Appointment TV
From the very beginning I had my doubts this show will last. Why? It’s hard to say. Sometimes I just have a feeling about a show that it just might not catch on or gain an audience. But based on reactions from Twitter mixed with my own, I’m prepared to eat my words predicting this show will be on the cancelled list. FOX might have it’s first new hit drama of Fall 2013. (more…)

I may have fibbed to a few people when I said I’d be doing a video review for this film. I apologize. I almost shot a video in my car moments after leaving the theater, but I was way too sleepy. Kudos to the theaters having earlier premieres than midnight. Some of us have work on Friday morning (that I almost slept through). But hey, this film declares summer is here!
IM3 picks up some time after last years mega hit The Avengers. Tony Stark is having serious anxiety problems, most of which stem from the events in that film. I say that so people who have admitted to me they haven’t seen IM1 or 2 can skip to Avengers just to get familiar with what’s going on so they can see this one. Anyway, besides Stark’s personal demons, he has a new villain to face by the name of The Mandarin. I had to run over to Wikipedia just to get a background on who he is and what he does. I’m not going to explain here. Kudos to the brilliant actor Sir Ben Kingsley. The plot mostly comes from the Iron Man story arc “Extremis” which for a while was on Netflix Instant. (more…)

To make my life easier as a lazy writer, the 2002 Spider-Man (and it’s sequels) will just be OSM and 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man will be TASM. Got it? Good.
Now it’s come to my attention that there are folks out there that are confused as to why Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst from OSM are no-shows in this new version known as TASM. I will admit, I may have been a bit lazy in my recent review in detailing what the difference is between this reboot and the original franchise. But I think the best way to explain it is chronologically. (more…)
While I did record a video review mere moments after I left the theater, I don’t feel it’s up to par for sharing just yet. In the background there were too many explosions, swashbucklings, and there was a dragon that almost ate my car… (all captured on my camera of course) but the audio was bad. I may change my mind and end up uploading it to YouTube and adding it to this post. With that said, let’s continue as if no one will ever witness that incredible video.
The Amazing Spider-Man is a reboot of the Spider-Man film franchise started a decade ago. Wow, I’m getting old. Andrew Garfield picks up the mask this time around to retell the origin of the famous web slinger. (more…)

I’ve been either really busy or really lazy, but this video should have been posted moments after my review for The Avengers was posted. But nevertheless, here are my thought’s on the romantic comedy that probably isn’t in theaters anymore, or will be phased out in the coming weeks.

Hopefully I can do these more often. Also, at least with the blog, anything I forgot to say I can write it here. But if you didn’t catch my point, I’m recommending you see this immediately!
I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was. In fact, I wasn’t even planning on seeing it in theaters. But I’m glad that I did. Summer has officially begun.

While I already wanted to see this movie,Hugo’s five Academy Award wins over eleven nominations cemented my need to see this film ASAP. I now have a greater understanding as to why so many critics have been calling this past year and the nominees for Best Picture were all about the movies, besides the obvious.
I’ve heard Hugo is Martin Scorsese’s love letter to the movies. And if you know anything about Scorsese, besides just his films, you know that he’s all about the classics and keeping them preserved for future generations to cherish and enjoy. With that said, there’s a serious nod to the wonderful world of books. I couldn’t help but think of a few of my friends who have a passion for reading. This movie marries the two perfectly. Kids, keep reading and you can throw out big words on the fly too! (more…)
