Extant - "Shelter"

Extant – Shelter

The family is on the run now with Ethan in the back. They are afraid of being tracked, with good reason, to the point that they disabled Ethan’s tracking. Sometimes you forget that Ethan is not real in moments when he acts just like a normal kid, only to be reminded by an action of…

Batman vs Superman

Casting Outrages

There are so many characters that we’ve come to love over the years and there are more being create each day. These characters become part of our consciousness and we start to love our characters like they actually do exist. Which is why it is important that when we see these characters are brought to…

Guardians of the Galaxy Promo

Guardians of the Galaxy Buzz

Guardians of the Galaxy is finally coming to theatres this Friday and it is going to be one tense weekend. Out of all the Marvel films it is the most risky film. It is also the least related film as it deals with space and the goings on well beyond the Earth. Yet, I’ve been…

Gone Smooth

The Strain – Gone Smooth

It was creepy seeing Thomas’ transformation into his common appearance was eerie. Seeing him in his true state was a bit off setting. And his bit by bit additions that made him a real person was unsettling. He preened himself into this image of something false as he tries to pass for human. Jim Kent…

Gravity

Gravity Review

Release Date: 10/04/2013 Director: Alfonso CuarĂ³n Starring: Sandra Bullock (Ryan Stone), George Clooney (Matthew Kowalski) I’ll admit that it took me quite a while before I finally got to actually watching last year’s heavily praised 3D masterpiece. Honestly, escaping the hype was one of the best things I could have possibly done, as it allowed…

Home Theatre

New Release Video On Demand

There is something to going to a theatre and experiencing a movie with a crowd around you. Laughs become funnier and thrills become more exciting. It is a communal experience and I doubt that excitement will ever change. But this weekend I finally caved to a new way of watching movies, video on demand. Of…

RPG Mania

Over the past few months, I started playing RPGs. So far it has only been South Park: The Stick of Truth and Mass Effect, but I’ve gone all out recently with these games. A year ago, you never would have caught me playing an RPG as they simply didn’t interest me very much. There were…

Hannibal

Horror on TV

I’ve talked about Horror on TV before, but I really want to focus on how difficult it can be for maintaining the suspense. With a movie the elements of horror, suspense, and shocks or clues are piled up throughout the movie. As a result, there is a more standard pacing to movies that can be…

The Strain "The Box"

The Strain – The Box

I like when characters behave like real people would. So I was thoroughly thrilled when Gus ran off after the coffin he was transporting rattled and tossed him back five feet. Yes, that was a wonderfully fantastic and real reaction to a very strange circumstance. Considering this show is a vampire show, it’s good that…

Fairy Tail

Character Quirks

there are people out there who don’t think that the quirks of characters are very important when it comes to creating a character. Instead, it is thought that creating the emotional connections that work based off the character’s personality is the most important thing. However, I have found that when it comes to creating characters…

The Flash

Adapting Comics to TV

I’ve talked about adaptations previously (and comic adaptations). I’ve even talked about why I think The Runaways would make a far better TV show than a movie, but I feel like I need to go into why I believe that comic adaptations are well suited for TV. Yes, there are certain arcs that can be…

Extinct

Extant – Extinct

Eggs can stand up straight without falling over. Yes, I am taking not of the little things that like to show themselves as evidence that this is the near future. Oh and there are games with lasers and metal ball bearings. I don’t really get it, but it was’t for me to get but to…
