This was definitely the best and most exciting season opener (for season 5) for The Walking Dead so far. Lots happening, and already we’re headed on a new course. The only thing that bugged me was the moment where the unknowns are getting killed (in the scene pictured above), and then it just “magically” stops […]
Well that was certainly an eventful season opener. I really like this show, and it looks like we’re in for another wild ride of a season.
This is pretty much exactly what I wanted as a companion show to Arrow – something that is lighter and funner, but still feels at home in the “universe” that is being created for Arrow. Sure, the pilot is a bit too backstory heavy, but that’s what you’d expect from a pilot, and I’m quite […]
I really, really liked this movie. I’d say it’s the closest to a Blade Runner I’ve seen since, well, Blade Runner. It has a similar vibe and presentation of the future, mixed in with some classic Asimov robot “directives.” And there’s something really haunting and emotional about the way they portray the robots, despite the […]
They have all of Columbo on Hulu Japan, and so the other day I went and watched the very first episode, from 1971 (“Murder by the Book,” they’re all done as TV movies). I’ve seen some Columbo in the past, but just the last ones that were made, in the early nineties I think. I […]
This is this, and that’s that. A bit of an update on the various things I’m involved with, starting with the very happy announcement that was made a week ago that PressPause is coming back for a second season, starting on Thursday, November 6 (at 20:00). We – me and my fellow organizers, Daryl Cole […]
I do still like the Twin Peaks movie because I get to experience more of this world, but watching it again last night I was reminded why I will never like it like I do the series. The problem with the movie is that it only focuses on the dark aspects of the series. What […]
This is a fantastic documentary about the incredibly vast – and quite ridiculous – archives that Kubrick kept as he did research on his films (or even as he did research on what to do next). It’s fascinating, really, and you can watch it online here.
As I think I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big fan of fighting games – the only one I remember really loving a lot was Power Stone – and although I know that the Smash games have a reputation for being more friendly (in terms of the controls), I still have never really played them […]
Despite the fact that this is mostly a Dynasty Warriors game with a Zelda skin – and I’ve never felt any particular desire to play a Dynasty Warriors game – I so wanted to get this because of, well, Zelda. I’m happy I did get it. Sure, it’s mindless hacking and slashing for the most […]
