• Now That They’re Done Striking, Lost Writers Spill The Beans!

    February 21, 2008

    Entertainment Weekly interviews two of the Lost writers, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, fresh off the picket lines bringing us some wicked good spoilers. Those of you wracking your brains about the bracelet, drop it: DAMON LINDELOF: I got some e-mails from people who wondered if there was a connection between Naomi’s bracelet and the... Read More

  • Snowday: A Timelapse Film

    January 18, 2008

    Well, it’s not going to win any Oscars, but here’s my first attempt at timelapse filming. Voiceover: It started out like any other day. Little did they know what the day had in store. And for those of you with nothing better to do, check out my first attempt at claymation.

  • The Golden Compass

    May 25, 2007

    Can anyone tell me more about this movie, or the book it’s based on? The LoTR lift is silly, but the rest of the movie looks stunning: Hi-res version here. UPDATE: I bought the book and I’m about half-way through. I’ll write up a brief review when I’m finished.

  • A House Of A Different Color

    April 29, 2007

    Well, now, what’s this? Hugh Laurie with a British accent? Now that’s a novel concept. Time out for a little Laurie and Fry in Tricky Linguistics: Why stop there? Hugh Laurie in tights as Tony of Plymouth!

  • Heroes: Discussion

    April 25, 2007

    Ok, so I’ve bumped this old article back up to the front page, because I think it deserves some attention in light of Monday’s show. Let me begin with a confession. This Monday, I watched Heroes, not 24. Oh, I flipped back and forth during commercials, but I made sure I was back before I... Read More

  • Get Personal With A Ninja

    April 17, 2007

    Ever find yourself wondering, “how would a ninja respond in this situation?” I do all the time. Fortunately, I found this site before I gave up all hope. Here’s a classic sampling of ninja wisdom regarding “Niniature Golf”: “Nobody wants to kiss somebody who’s been infinitely diminished.”

    March 12, 2007

    If you’ve read my blog over the last few months, you know I’m a Heroes junkie. And if you’re a fellow Heroes junkie, you’re jonesing tonight just like I am. We have to wait until April 23rd for the next episode to find out who wins, Peter or Sylar. (Of course we already know the... Read More

  • Goodbye Edgar

    March 7, 2006

    It was quite a night for us 24 followers. Poor Edgar was just doing his job, checking on the girl who was murdered and then the inevitable happens… he’s sealed out in the nerve gas and Chloe watches tearfully as he collapses and dies. *sigh* And he was such a good guy. It’s a shame... Read More

  • And The Winner Is…

    March 6, 2006

    I watched the Oscars tonight and I couldn’t help but notice between the awkward camera shots, the annoying commentary and the haughty self-importance how unpolished Hollywood’s biggest show is. There were a few bright spots–Ben Stiller’s floating head, Reese Witherspoon’s southern charm and Lily Tomlin and Merrill Streep’s ad-libbing–but overall it was far too boring... Read More

  • Busey On The Brain

    February 2, 2006

    Ok, so what’s the deal with Gary Busey? If anyone watched the under-funded apocalyptic thriller Tribulation, you saw him as the main character, fighting against his past and the forces of evil. Reading his biography is like riding a roller coaster, but the man claims to be a Christian. I even came across some pictures... Read More

  • Narnia: A Journey into the Imagination

    December 10, 2005

    Went with J for the opening day of Narnia. Times like this I’m apprehensive, much like I felt with the movie adaptations of Tolkein’s works. The books mean so much to you, you couldn’t bear for a poor representation for your imagination. It’s almost like it’s disjointed. Like when you imagine someone famous but then... Read More

  • The Interpreter

    May 8, 2005

    After a slow start and a bit of a 70’s drama opening, the movie picks up momentum with the introduction of its two characters, Tobin Keller (played by Sean Penn) and Silvia Broome (played by Nicole Kidman). It’s a fairly character driven drama because the plot, while complex and pertinent, gets a bit tedious. The... Read More

  • On the Set of War of the Worlds

    December 7, 2004

    Well, I sure got an adventure for ya. Filming began this week in Athens, NY on the set of War of the Worlds, a new movie directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise scheduled for release sometime next year. So I’m driving home up Route 9 just outside of Hudson and I see this... Read More

  • The Day After Tomorrow

    May 30, 2004

    Going to watch The Day After Tomorrow and expecting to be educated is like going to Disney World for a lesson in Advanced English Grammar. You don’t go there to engage your brain. You go to have a good time. And it was, in theory, a good time; despite the fact my disbelief was suspended... Read More

  • I Watched My Savior Die

    February 27, 2004

    I saw The Passion of The Christ tonight, and I am very tired. I will only write a little, because I need to let it sink in. I suppose everyones reaction will be different. I went with my parents and they were fairly straight-faced. My brother and sister-in-law were somber and my sister was amazed.... Read More
