TheHil’s Top 10 Movies of 2014, Part 1

23 Mar

We’re down to the Top 10 and 2015 is already 25% over, so I’m gonna cut to the chase and (try to) keep it short and sweet. 10. The LEGO Movie I thought this would be a cute, semi-original kid’s movie. I didn’t expect it to make me tear up. The animation— which while done [...]

Let’s Talk About All the 2014 Movies, Part 5- Back From the Dead

12 Mar

I didn’t give up on this, I’ve just been super busy lately. Working on a novel and planning on moving back to the East Coast, so not as much time for blogging. After I finish up this and the Assassin’s Creed list I will probably give it a rest for a while. I do kinda [...]

Top 10 TV Episodes of 2014, Part 2

13 Jan

7. South Park- “The Cissy” Who woulda thunk South Park would still be relevant in its 18th season? But it is, though as always it’s an uneven animal. I think I liked this season more than most, due in large part to the mild serialization and the extra bit of heart. This episode was one [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 5

31 May

5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Until the release of The Avengers I considered Captain America to be the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Now I would probably call it a tie between Cap and the first Iron Man, but I still think the former is more unique and less of your [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 4

15 May

4. Thor (2011) I enjoyed Thor much more than I thought I would and was surprised by how solidly entertaining it was. I’ve never been a big fan of the character or the idea that Asgardian gods coexist with dudes in robot suits, super soldiers and big green monsters, but director Kenneth Branagh and star [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 3

7 May

Okay, so I slacked off on this. It’s May 7th and The Avengers has already come out and I’ve already seen it. But fuck it, I’m gonna go through with this- finish what you start, you know? So… where were we? 3. Iron Man 2 (2010) Iron Man 2 is undoubtedly the worst film in [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 2

30 Apr

2. The Incredible Hulk (2008) I’m beginning to see a trend with these Marvel movies. It seems to me that when the suits got together and decided to go ahead with their cinematic universe initiative, part of the plan was to enlist A-list actors of superb talent to bring Marvel’s iconic heroes to life. A [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 1

22 Apr

Now that I’m once again woefully unemployed, I figured it was a better time than ever for a good ol’ fashioned Alex Hilhorst countdown. In anticipation of next month’s The Avengers, I’ve decided to watch all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Films in chronological order. That means Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, [...]

Comics Roundup- 08.03.2011, Part 2

7 Aug

The Punisher #1 I read a couple Punisher comics in summer camp (where I actually did a lot of my early comic reading) and once caught some of Punisher: Warzone on Spike TV. Basically what I came away with from that is that the Punisher is a vigilante with a penchant for vengeance and his [...]

Comics Roundup- 08.03.2011, Part 1

3 Aug

In case it wasn’t already apparent, I have become a total comics nerd. Maybe it’s because of the DC Relaunch. Maybe it’s because I liked the Captain America movie. Maybe I’m just entering that phase. Whatever the reason, I continue to recap comics I’m following. Enjoy. Batman: Arkham City #4 The series that ties into [...]
