Star Trek

I just read the Tribune’s review of Star Trek. I might have to see it. But here is my favorite line: At times you think you’re watching trick-or-treaters dressed as Sulu (played here by John Cho), or Chekov (Anton Yelchin, making hay with the… Continue Reading “Star Trek”

I Don’t Know How I Feel About This

“Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes will play warring gods in Clash of the Titans, a Greek epic directed by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk). The “reimagining” of the 1981 classic is scheduled for March 26, 2010.” Clash of the Titans is one of the… Continue Reading “I Don’t Know How I Feel About This”

Worst Movie Sequels

So. I went to check my e-mail after lunch. And MSN had an article about the worst movie sequels ever made. Of course, Grease 2 was on the list. And it named songs. I have had “Let’s Score!” in my head all afternoon. I… Continue Reading “Worst Movie Sequels”

A Productive Weekend

I took my last Accounting quiz on Saturday. The final exam isn’t until next Saturday, so it felt like I had an almost free weekend. I started it rearranging my library, and filling those new bookshelves. I won’t be “done” until I finish importing… Continue Reading “A Productive Weekend”

Horrible Star Wars Thing

My friend Holly sent me this and I am only posting it here so that I can find it again when I need to make someone throw up. Like my brother. http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2809991&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=&fullscreen=1Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it) from Joe Nicolosi on… Continue Reading “Horrible Star Wars Thing”

Observation

The Lord of the Rings is running on TNT over the holiday weekend. Again. Star Wars is on Spike. I am sure Harry Potter is somewhere. I was thinking that I like Fellowship the best of the Hobbit films. I am not sure if… Continue Reading “Observation”

The Spirit of the Season

My friend, utter_scoundrel, is a great nerd and got into the spirit of the season by watching all of the Friday the 13th films. (I just had to pause and ask myself if the word “film” is the appropriate word to describe them.) Personally,… Continue Reading “The Spirit of the Season”

Too Much TV Again

There are some movies that we shouldn’t bother to pick up on DVD because they are always on cable. Some of these are movies that we simply cannot turn off, regardless of how many, many times we have seen them before. Tonight’s example is… Continue Reading “Too Much TV Again”

This is to Make My Mother Mad.

She stopped reading the books and cursed Jo Rowling’s name the moment a certain someone that we all loved got avada kedevra’d (I don’t remember how to spell that) in Book 5. I like that this is more creepy than mind-blowing.

At the Movies: The Balcony is Closed

I read the Tribune, so I missed Roger Ebert’s blog at the Sun Times on the “new direction” of his show, At the Movies (or whatever they call it these days). You can read it here. I remember when Gene Siskel died, in early… Continue Reading “At the Movies: The Balcony is Closed”
