“It’s over. It’s done.” That sums up my feelings about the final part of the Tolkien saga that Peter Jackson set out to create. It’s been a long and winding journey, but it’s been a great one.

In May, Mat Smith announced he was retiring from being the Doctor. And, to be honest, most of the fandom felt sad about it. He was our hip, young, cool Doctor. Then Peter Capaldi was announced as the next regeneration. Again, most of the fandom reacted positively (especially after seeing gifs of him in In the Thick of It). So of course, we all expected a great, wonderful, amazing send off for Matt, as great and heartbreaking as we got for David Tennant.
Moffat, you let me down again. Continue reading

Go see Pacific Rim. Just do it. This film is awesome, and in a summer of sequels and remakes…it’s an original work of fiction that is just epic. That’s it – just go see it.
Man of Steel seems to be the most polarizing film of 2013. You either absolutely love the film, or you absolutely hate it. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between. With that in mind, we would like to take a look at DC’s latest film and third incarnation of Superman on the big screen. This review will be different from most. It will be from the opinions of both a fan of Superman, and someone who isn’t too fond of the big blue boyscout.

Star Trek into Darkness, which I swear we’re all typing correctly, is good. It’s a good film. It’s fun, packed full of great action sequences, and Michael Giacchino’s soundtrack is beautiful as always. So, if that’s what you’re looking for, then you’re in luck and you will absolutely love this movie. If you’re a Trekkie outside of J.J. Abrams’s reboot film series, then your reaction might be somewhat mixed. So, let’s talk about why – but first you have to beware spoilers. Nothing is off limits, and Abrams proved that.
So Doctor Who ended last Saturday. Well, this season/series (for wherever you’re reading from). And obviously it was picked up for another season/series. But some of the deep love for the show is starting to fade.
WARNING: After the cut there will be spoilers. Spoilers galore. Like River’s notebook. But worse. Tread with caution. Continue reading
When Sera Gamble finally left Supernatural as showrunner, everyone rejoiced. Finally, everyone thought, the reign of (mostly) horrible story lines would be over. And, okay, they were – for the most part. Some story lines we’re stuck with because of the special kind of hell that was left over from season six and season seven. However, the guys promised us something during the summer between season seven and season eight – and they didn’t really deliver. In fact, there are certain staff writers who, when I see they’ve written an episode, I cringe and prepare myself for their lack of understanding of the world, the characters, and their audience.
Season eight was a promise, and it fell short.
I think we are looking at a really great series here. This week’s episode of Hannibal was amazing. It opens with a flashback of the Minnesota Shrike and his daughter, Abigail Hobbs, hunting in the woods. He tells her they must use every part of the deer they kill in order to honor it. Then we get flashes of a dead human girl and she finally wakes up from her coma. And with that, everyone wants to talk to her. This includes the ever nosy Freddie Lounds. Continue reading
The Cabin in the Woods isn’t your typical horror film. Well…it is, but it also isn’t. I’m gonna put a spolier warning on this article – just in case. If you haven’t seen Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s groundbreaking entry into the ever growing genre of horror, then you should. It truly is a cross-genre masterpiece. Not since Scream has the horror genre been so utterly flipped on its head, and beautiful so.
