UNDER-THE-DOME

It’s time again for everyone’s favorite game, “Is Under the Dome good this week?” The rules are simple. The folks at CBS air an episode on Monday night. I watch said episode either late Monday or early Tuesday. Then I procrastinate. On Wednesday (sometimes Thursday, ahem) I post my thoughts.

So. Was Under the Dome good this week? Place your bets and read on.

Editorial: Pitching “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” to Christopher Nolan

Michael Bay digging his nails into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has become a big source of geek contention across the Internet since it was announced. “Ninja Turtles”, as it will be called, would drastically change the origin of the heroes in a half-shell. In this iteration the Turtles would be alien in origin and as a result, nerds the world over cried foul. It was eventually announced that the movie would honor the source material. The damage was still done, though.

Years of remakes, reimagining, reboots and pre-imaginings have left me desensitized to the war currently waging between the fanboys and the evil empire of modern Hollywood. Recently my detachment and boredom led me down an amusing path. That path ended in four amusing words.

Christopher Nolan’s Power Rangers.

It’s a mighty morphin’ idea, no? Here’s my pitch detailing how Hollywood could turn something that took millions…

The Month in Movies: August 2013

August was a slow month for me when it comes to my movie watching. Historically speaking, it’s a slow month for me anyways. In years past I had the start of school drastically cutting back my numbers. Not to mention, I also have the beginning of the fall TV season to vie for my attention.

So August is always a slow month. However, this year I managed to squeeze in 17 movies. I would say that the absence of school in my life may have contributed to it, but this was my best August since 2008. I think 2008 may have actually been the last August I was in school. I’m not sure.

In any case, here are the best and worst of my movies watched in August 2013. Continue reading
