I believe wholeheartedly that all Godzilla-related trailers should be legally obligated to use BöC.

I’ve only seen the first 2 episodes of season 2 at this point, but so far, it addresses nearly all my issues with season 1. Most notable is the pacing. It’s just way better. If the season continues this way, I think the show will have found it’s footing. Read more

Super8 has an upbeat ending? I don’t remember that at all. I would choose Tron: Legacy over the original any day. Otherwise, a pretty good list. Contact is so earnest I love it. Read more

Loved it and saw it in the theater with the very few others that did but Highlander is not that hopeful. Read more

About time we got Dunk and Egg! IIRC Martin resisted allowing it to be adapted for a long time because he didn’t want it to infringe on territory he was going to cover in future Dunk and Egg novellas. I’m glad he changed his mind.

Not the strongest episode of the season, but I grade it on a curve because it’s very obviously a bottle episode made to save the budget for the finale. Read more

People talk about shoulder pads and leg warmers, but that top pic shows the worst thing about 80's fashion: those frilly blouses. Immediately takes me back to high school. Read more
