*and by best, I mean my personal favorites.
I’m working on the post (and have been for some time) and in the last week of December I will post it :) stay tuned
A zombie movie: Yes. A spin on the Romeo & Juliet story: Yes. Good though. Very good! Maybe I’m a big softy at heart.
It may have a discount Kristen Stewart as the lead and some dude who mumbles through out the whole movie BUT still this works. I would recommend it.
While I didn’t really like either of the two main characters…their actions, motivations, etc were all kind of goofy and cliche…
I liked the premise.
It’s like a self inflicted survival story. Fun stuff!
Things go from bad to OMGFuckingSHIT! Bad
I really enjoyed Lord of the Rings. What can I say, I love the Fantasy!
I really liked the Hobbit part 1! Although the escape from Goblin Mountain was stretching suspension in disbelief to a point. The climbing the trees defense at the end was similar in feeling.
Despite those two gripes, I still really enjoyed the movie (which become marathons for me as it takes me forever to get through one) but it’s a way to savor the goodness.
The end of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy from Edgar Wright with Simon Pegg & Nick Frost. While it’s not as funny - like HAHA - as Shawn of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, it has an amusing premise BUT a lot of action and like the other two, some serious, heart warming touching moments.
I’d watch it again.
Agents of SHIELD is like icing. Not really thick butter cream icing, more like that whipped cream icing. It’s kind of sweet but you know there’s way better icing for your cake.
This icing analogy is stopping before it gets annoying. That said, Agents is good, ok even, not great.
take for example…Last night’s episode - no idea what the title is but it was the tie in to Thor 2…except that it wasn’t.
The Agents played Damage Control..could you imagine how terrible a show THAT would be. Cleaning up after a great big battle is as exciting as that sounds.
Then they swerve off to the real plot which didn’t involve Thor 2 at all, sure Asgardians, but that that could have happened at any time.
See, the show has a bubblliness about it, like Simmons and Skye ALL the time, except those couple moments when it doesn’t. May’s open door policy was a bit adult for the show.
Not that every show has to be super serious like Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones but when the show is more camp then serious it tends to have less weight.
I do like it, it just has tone issues.
Because it’s the Internet I think I’ll throw down some thoughts about this weeks episode Live Bait of the Walking Dead. Spoiler warning…I guess, did enough happen that could warrant spoilers?
This episode focused all on the Governor, although, without followers…can he even be a Governor. Some thought
We shall see
I managed to get 2 comics for my Project: Recreate the Lost Long Box - All-Star Squadron (1st issue) & Unknown Soldier (The final issue) and one of the wishlist comics, Cable & Deadpool 38 - 1st appearance of Bob, agent of Hydra.
