In the past week, I have managed to get a nasty head cold. What’s the best remedy? Lots of drugs and a funny movie. Obviously. Having missed Tucker & Dale vs. Evil in the theater, I decided to spend some Microsoft points and rent myself some fun. How could I go wrong with a film that stars Alan Tudyk, right?
Season 2 of HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones has not even aired yet, but we have been given word that there will also be a Season 3. I’m sure fans of the George R.R. Martin novels-based series are breathing a sigh of relief, especially those who have not read the books and are wondering what happens next.
Those of us hardcore geeks keep up with such things as Stan Lee’s birthday, which is coming up soon on December 28th. This year, Lee has requested that instead of gifts, that we honor his 89th birthday by donating to the Hero Initiative.
Tolkien fans, rejoice! Santa has given us the new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I am still personally disappointed with Peter Jackson’s choice of 3D, but this will be one of those movies I see regardless. However, if the 3D detracts from the film, heads will roll!
I will preface this review by stating that the only real reason I wanted to see Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows had more to do with seeing the new The Dark Knight Rises trailer. Nonetheless, I sort of liked the first Sherlock Holmes movie, so I settled into my theater seat with a free bag of popcorn and an over-priced Diet Coke.
I geeked out when I heard from Matt Palazzolo who has written a web series that was directed by none other than Star Trek: Voyager’s Tim Russ. The web series is called Bloomers and it is about a diverse group of 20-somethings learning new ways to love, work, and laugh in Downtown Los Angeles.
