…Need A Hero

Related imageAs another season of, “The Walking Dead,” comes to a close, it’s time to reflect. This little zombie show that could has come a long way in the past eight seasons.

While its fan base remains incredibly supportive and loyal, it’s hard not to admit the show has had its highs and lows over the past eight years. As we approach another finale tomorrow night, it’s in desperate need of a hero. Read the rest of this entry

…take the time

cf5nqhcxiae59i9-jpg-largeWith few exceptions (Thor) one of the enduring lessons of the Marvel lesson is the power of our own inner strength, and above all, intelligence. Even the Hulk is the product of the incredible work of Bruce Banner. Yes, Tony Stark had a leg up with the whole son of a successful businessman, but he’s pretty stinkin’ smart in his own right.

I think it’s safe to assume that half of you just cheered, while the other half shuttered and made a beeline for the  closest art house box office.

It’s true we have several months of in your face scores, explosions, wizardry, robots, super powers, and pirating ahead of us.

Which side of the film spectrum do the Crusaders fall on?  Like you really have to ask.

We are all over it.

So naturally, it is with bated breath, a critical eye, and Harry Potter t-shirts at the ready that we embark on this gloriously pyrotechnic-heavy summer.

Prepare yourselves for a summer of blockbuster reviews, coming approximately one to two weeks after release date.

We don’t do midnight showings.  Love the loud noises that come with season, not the ones that come from the audience.  They can’t hear you scream!

Sorry, indie film fans, we love you too, and shall return to you in the fall.

In the mean time, lovers of loud noises, popcorn, loosely connected plot lines, and laser vision, rejoice!  Your time has come!
