TARDIS Talk 12

Look! It’s Tuesday and my TARDIS Talk is done! I’m making great leaps and bounds. One day I may even be a respectable and well liked blogger! I can dream, can’t I?  So Saturday was the long awaited conclusion of last weeks episode called Under the Lake and… well… I’ll save the rest for the Talk….

TARDIS Talk 11

Okay, here’s the 11th TARDIS Talk. And look, I got it up before the next episode aired! How responsible of me. The episode from this week is written by Toby Whithouse who penned such classics as A Town Called Mercy and The God Complex.  Moffat gets a lot of crap from people about his writing and occasional memory…

TARDIS Talk 10

That’s right my friends. We’re in double digits now! I’m behind again, but not as bad as last year. See? I’m getting better. Last year my second Talk encompassed episodes 2, 3 and 4. This time I’m only two behind! Take that! Well we have a couple of really good episodes to talk about so…

Matt Damon: Martian Macgyver

Andy Weir published his first novel back in 2011. It got good reviews right out of the gate and gained in popularity every since. It got so popular that it was turned into a movie starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain. I finished reading the book right before seeing the movie. Quite literally right before….

Mehverest

The type of climbers who dare to tackle any of the big seven summits fall into two interesting categories in my books. The first is people that I have tremendous respect for. The second is people who are nuttier that squirrel poo.  Like the trailer for the movie Everest said, once you reach a certain point, you’re…

A Better Maze

This is a late review, much like my TARDIS Talk for the premier of Doctor Who series 9. I apologize for it being late but frankly I forgot this movie was coming out. There were about 3 weeks there of nothing interesting.  Okay, there was probably something interesting but the big releases were Agent 47 and Transporter…

TARDIS Talk: The Series 9 Premiere

Ladies and Gentlemen, Doctor Who is back and I’m already late to the party and oh what a party it was. Remember folks, my TARDIS Talks are full of spoilers so if you haven’t seen the episode yet, then let this be your warning. Turn back now. Read a horror review from Raz. He’s posted 3 in…

Mission: U.N.C.L.E

From 1964 to 1968 there was a TV show on NBC called The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. It starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum and it had a 105 episode run and then went away, living on only in the minds of my parents’ generation… until now. For some reason Guy Ritchie chose to dust this…

Fantastic Snore

I wanted Fantastic Four to be good. I wanted it to be good so badly that I went and saw it despite the 9% on Rotten Tomatoes and the 27% on Metacritic. Critics can be uptight and fail to recognize when a movie is fun, focusing only on what makes it bad. I was hoping to…

Mission: Impossible: Ethan and Benji’s Excellent Adventure

I knew, without question, that I was going to see Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation in theaters.  I’m a fan of the series and though this trailer didn’t really grab me like M:I:III or Ghost Protocol did, I had to go.  They’re like Bond movies, you just go see them. But is Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation worth the price of admission?…

Pixels better Pac its bags

I didn’t want to see this movie but I knew I had to. There are a few, maybe even a dozen of you waiting to hear my opinion on this latest Adam Sandler film. I did my part and saw it and also was able to go into it with an open mind. I’ve been…
