Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 4

11 Jun

3. Prometheus (2012) SPOILER ALERT Yeah, yeah- I know. I’m breaking the chronological order of this marathon. But I just saw Prometheus on Friday and it’s still fresh in my mind, so I figured I should break protocol and write about it while it’s still the talk of the internet. Plus, I’ve decided I only [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 3

5 Jun

Aliens (1986) Special Edition God, I love this movie. Combined with Terminator 2, Aliens is an example of an action director at the peak of his career. Say what you will about Avatar and Titanic, there’s no denying that at the turn of the 1990s, James Cameron was the king of action. A lot of [...]

IDW Comics Roundup

29 Nov

Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard #4 And so, the Duke Nukem comic comes to a close, and no, I am not ashamed to say that I read all four issues. In concept this was a good idea, and I can’t exactly say I was disappointed since my expectations were never really that high, but at the [...]

Grading the New 52, Part 3

20 Sep

A new batch of these are coming out on Wednesday, so I’m trying to play catch up. Here’s some more reviews.

Daniel delivers [...]

An X-Files Retrospective, Part 12

16 Aug

The X-Files- Season 8 Sigh. That exclamation pretty much sums up how I feel about The X-Files’ penultimate season. This is one of the best sci-fi shows ever made we’re talking about here, hell one of the best TV shows ever made ever, so it really pains me to talk about its slow, laborious death. [...]

Falling Skies Season Finale Recap

8 Aug

Check out my recap of last night’s double-sized Falling Skies recap at Culturemob. As much as I love me a show about aliens, Falling Skies has had a rocky first season, and the finale was a mixed bag. You can read my take here.

Falling Skies Redeems Itself, Gears Up For Finale

1 Aug

After the dismal resolution to the “Sanctuary” arc, many Falling Skies fans wondered if the alien invasion drama would be of a flip-floppy quality like another show I recap, The Killing. Fortunately, the show redeemed itself with the awesome “What Hides Beneath,” an episode that centered on gruff military leader Weaver, while also exploring the [...]

Falling Skies Keeps Getting Better- Recap

18 Jul

Falling Skies has had its fair share of ups and downs over the course of its first six episodes, but it’s clearly getting better and I feel I may have become too hypercritical as of late- too curmudgeonly. So head over to Culturemob to read my latest recap, which is much more upbeat and enthusiastic [...]

11 Jul

How’s it going everybody? So I’ve been in Martha’s Vineyard, where I simultaneously tried to relax and deal with my parents, which is why I haven’t posted anything the past twelve days. I did however manage to go to the library and write a recap of last week’s episode of Falling Skies, entitled “Grace.” You [...]
