I just watched the two-hour opener for the new Star Trek series, and enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. Sure, there’s something a bit weird about Star Trek being so war-focused, but what I was presented with was an incredibly interesting new setup, and I was actually shocked by the way the […]
The Japan Times recently published a piece that gives a nice rundown of what Dangen Entertainment — a publisher+ that wants to be the bridge between Japan and the west — is all about. Glad to see my buddies Ben, John, and Nayan getting so much great coverage for their new business.
Nothing really to say other than I still really love the Gener8ion Tumblr, even though I know nothing about who is behind it. Love the aesthetic.
I’m definitely taking my time with my 1977 movie marathon (maybe it should be called a 1977 “crawl” instead), as I have to be in the mood. A couple of weeks ago I watched Saturday Night Fever for the first time in forever, and it made me realize that, I think I really like disco […]
Look, just like the first one, this movie is dumb as hell, but I got a kick out of watching it. I’ve even come to think that fighting in hockey is crazy and stupid — and that’s the aspect of hockey that these movies clearly focus on — but still, as someone who grew up […]
I remember being disappointed by Kingsman the first time I watched it. I think it’s because I wanted something that was a bit less wacky, and I really hated Samuel L. Jackson’s character and his annoying lisp. After seeing the trailers for the sequel, which to me looked super fun, I decided to give the […]
What to say about this. I wasn’t really excited to see another Pirates movie, and so it kinda feels like a franchise that is really pushing its luck, but then again, I like big adventure movies, so I wanted to give it a shot. In the end, it passed the time, and had some neat […]
What a great movie, and it all starts with the soundtrack, which I think is the best song-based soundtrack we’ve gotten since Pulp Fiction. If I were to pull out a disappointment, it’s that the stunningly entertaining opening car action sequence never gets topped, and I kept hoping we were going to see more of […]
I had really liked the first season of this series, but then when the second season hit during the summer, as happy as I was to start watching it, I found myself not really digging it — it felt less funny and just meaner. So I only watched the first couple of episodes, and then […]
I quite enjoyed this new stand-up comedy special by Seinfeld for Netflix. It also made me realize that I think this was the first time I watched an actual full set by him — if you don’t count all of the stand-up bits that were part of the original Seinfeld series (which funnily enough, I […]
