With the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (formerly subtitled There and Back Again), Peter Jackson has completed his journey into Middle Earth. I’ve seen five out of the six installments in the theater and double dipped on owning the Lord of the Rings extended editions when they were released on blu-ray. While Jackson won’t rule out more Tolkien movies, I really do hope he calls it a day and lets Middle Earth rest on these six movies.  Continue reading

The Month in Movies: December 2013

THE WAY, WAY BACK

I closed out 2013 with a December that consisted of 20 viewings. Of those 20 viewings, only 8 were “first viewings” and 3 were trips to the theater. It was a pretty mellow way to close out the year. It was actually the opposite of 2012’s stats, where I watched any and every thing that I could.

Stay tuned to the blog and podcast for a rundown of not only my year in movies but also Mike and Tiny’s year. For now, here’s my rundown of the highs and lows of December 2013. Continue reading

The Obsessive Viewer Podcast – Ep 30 – A Nerdy Conversation with IndyPopCon’s Chase Kahlo

Here’s the latest ep of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast! I’m really excited about this episode. This week we had an in-studio guest for the first time since our friend Greg helped us kick off the podcast in June! Our guest was Chase Kahlo, one of the guys behind Indy PopCon (the brand new pop culture convention coming to Indianapolis in May 2014).

We had so much fun recording with Chase and we’ll probably have him back as the convention nears. And when I say he’s our first “in-studio” guest, I mean he’s our first guest in the makeshift studio I converted my brother’s sunroom into and use to record in while he’s at work. But all the same, it’s a great episode and I hope you like it. Continue reading
