A note before I get started with this week’s review. I mentioned last week in my “Parting Thoughts” section that I didn’t understand last week’s episode title (Blue on Blue) and thought a better episode title would be “Friendly Fire.” Thanks to Reddit user “AegisToTheCrown” I now know that “Blue on Blue” is actually military terminology for “friendly fire.” I […]
Release Date: October 4th, 2013 Director: Alfonso Cuarón Writers: Alfonso Cuarón, Jonás Cuarón Stars: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney The above alternative poster was found here. This week’s Trailer Tuesday is, admittedly, my first repeat. Back in May, I featured the teaser trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s highly anticipated space thriller Gravity. The movie features Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts stranded in low Earth orbit, fighting […]

This week’s episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast has just been posted. This week Tiny and I welcome back my friend Mike to discuss Man of Steel, Avengers: The Age of Ultron and the struggling Marvel-ization of the DC canon.
You can hear more of my thoughts on the movie in this week’s episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. I waited for Man of Steel to come to my local IMAX theater because I wanted to see it properly. After almost 2 months it was finally showing at the only 70mm IMAX theater in my state and I jumped at […]
Under the Dome is getting dangerous. This was the second week in a row that the show has had a strong episode. It’s successfully lulling me into a false sense of security as to what kind of quality we can expect from the rest of the season. BEWARE, MAJOR EPISODE SPOILERS…

Here’s the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast with Matt & Tiny. This was a lot of fun to record. We had my friend Mike on as a guest.

I had six hours to kill last weekend and had a hankering for some Francis Ford Coppola. So I popped in The Godfather and gave it my first viewing since 2009. After the movie, I was tempted to just pop in The Godfather Part II but I resisted. Not for any reason in particular. I love The Godfather Part II […]
I’ll be honest, last week’s episode left such a bad taste in my mouth that I was actually very nervous about tuning in this week. I spent the week telling myself that the show’s lackluster 3rd episode was just a fluke and the writers were still finding the voice of Chester’s Mill. I told myself that Alexander Koch just needed […]

Before you start reading, I must warn you that this is a SPOILER HEAVY list, obviously. Read at your own discretion. I wrote this in response to the end of season 3 of Game of Thrones. When I first started watching the series, I wanted to read each season’s corresponding book before I watched the adaptation. Given the length of […]
