Good, Bad, and Super

What is better than the review of a movie or TV show? The review of two TV shows plus one of a movie, of course.

If you’re interested in my to-the-point opinions of the TV shows Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, both based on DC comics, and Deadpool, the movie based on a Marvel character, then read on and enjoy!

The Shannara Chronicles

I finally watched the first episode of The Shannara Chronicles, the TV series by MTV. While I would have loved to see it as a kid, let’s be serious, it wouldn’t have been this good. Today, however, fantasy story arcs are incredibly popular so this series now has a chance to both be entertaining while also being quite accurate to the source novels.

How Geekdom (& hard work) Wins!!

I find, when it comes to web design, there’s a massive stage where creativity is king and you explore ideas and develop your design. Then you start to code it and things can periodically hit a hiccup but it still goes well because now you’re taking that design and making it happen in your web browser. And then you check the site in other browsers and on other computers.

An Overdo Update

Ok, so it’s been a very long time since I last updated this website. I had used it as a learning experience when I started it and my interest in writing posts for it began to fade but that might be about to change.

In a big way.

Thor: The Dark World

The God of Thunder returns in this sequel that is bigger and better than the first movie in just about every way yet it still doesn’t quite make it into the realm of an excellent movie though, elevated by some truly exceptional acting by a host of supporting characters, it comes really, really close.

Glee: It’s Ok to Not Cry

So, I saw tonight’s episode of Glee. I haven’t watched the show in a while but it was on in the background and I quickly realized it was dealing with the death of Cory Montieth/Finn.

I thought the episode was very good and very touching right up until the end at which point I have a problem with it. I apologize for being nitpicky about an episode in tribute to a young actor who tragically died far too young but my problem with the episode is worth mentioning, in my opinion. Warning – spoilers to follow.
