New Universe: The Dark Tower (Updated for 2017)

I enjoy my obsessions.  I am enthusiastic about the things I follow.  I tell fellow Blerds about the magic of IDW’s Transformers series (seriously…start reading this).  I’ve decided that my page would be a good place to share the universes I follow.  The first one I want is the one I’m most excited to see […]

The Weirdest S- I’ve Ever Seen: Transformers: The Movie

In the 80’s movies for children were either inane or psychotic.  Those that fell in between these two categories were easily forgotten.   For a person who is obsessed with bizarre and inexplicably macabre films, the 80’s offered a wealth of bafflingly grim kids movies.  At the time Transformers: The Movie existed as a strangely […]

Random Thoughts about Batman vs Superman

So… Instead of a traditional movie review.  I will just list the assorted thoughts I had while watching Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (this is seriously one of the dumbest names I’ve ever heard).  These aren’t exactly in order. Bruce’s parents die in this too?  Did his Mom gets shot in the face? That […]

The Weirdest Sh*t I’ve Ever Seen: The Dark Knight Rises

Time for an unpopular opinion… I loved Tom Hardy’s representation of Bane.  I liked the voice.  I liked his costume.  I liked his character.  Bane was the high part of the movie for me.  He was consistently the most interesting character in the movie. Bane also felt more real than any other character.  I’m saying […]

Rage of the Fanboys: HYPE

What’s the difference between excitement and hype? My definition is of excitement is: natural anticipation or enthusiasm that is levered to reality.   Hype on the other hand is an artificially high state of excitement that loses all sense of perspective or history. I saw Deadpool last week.  I really enjoyed it.  I had a […]

The (White) Gods of Egypt

The Gods of Egypt. Fam.  I hate this movie.   I haven’t even seen it and I hate it so much.   I hate the trailer.  I hate the concept.  I hate the title.  “Scholars” may (try) to debate the racial makeup of Ancient Egyptians but I know they damn sure weren’t Danish, French, Australian, […]
