Top Ten overlooked movie Villains

I have been pondering this for a while. What makes a good villain? Should they be pure evil or should we be able to relate to the villains? Movie villains are a dime a dozen and a comprehensive list of the best of the best just doesn’t exist. All of the lists that I have found online are either very large and seem to try and fit [...]

Modern Family: How is this funny?

So this is just a little blurb for the blog, but since it is television related I am going to tag it in TV as well. Lately my wife has been watching a lot of syndicated repeats of Modern Family on USA network. It would be fair to say that I have now watched about ten total episodes of this show and in my opinion that is enough to [...]

Review: The Worlds End

This is the second of five films that fellow contributor Jeremy Shaw challenged me to watch and review. I have chosen not to watch The Worlds End because I have grown tired of the formula. Ten years ago I loved Shaun of the Dead, and two years later I loved Hot Fuzz. Then I moved on. A few years went by and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost [...]

Adapted for screen by Ben Affleck and starring the man himself alongside Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively and Jon Hamm. I have always been a fan of Ben Affleck. There was a running gag [...]

Comic Review: Road Rage

I picked this up while at the Steel City Convention from a seller who was unloading smaller titles for $2 each. I ended up buying close to one copy of each being sold just to buy them, but this one I picked out first. I have always been a huge fan of Stephen King and Richard Matheson. In my opinion they set a standard in horror and [...]

The Rise and Fall of How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother was destined to be a success. It came at just the right time that sitcoms were looking to be a dying breed of entertainment. There wasn’t much competition and they had made some really wise casting decisions. Alyson Hannigan was a big name in TV after a long run on a the highly successful and very popular Buff [...]
