"Warrior" Review


    I do not like sports. I understand why others like them. It's just that the same thrill most people get from sports I can get just as much if not more from movies, without having to give up 4 hours of my day to watch them. The fact that I don't like sports makes the fact that I absolutely love sport films all the more confusing. I, like most people love a good underdog story. So, where does Warrior, which came out this past September and I am now reviewing on DVD, stack up against the great underdog movies like Miracle or Field of Dreams? Let's find out.

Christmas Special: Little Drummer Boy Review

    Ah, the holidays are almost here. The season of joy, giving and Christmas cheer. Carols get us into the spirit. Leave it the Bieber to make us hear it. He's made an album of Christmas wonder. He won't let things like skill or talent steal his thunder. Off this album comes a cover. Of Little Drummer Boy, as we discover. With Busta Ryhmes helping to spread the joy. Trust me, I'll try not to be coy. I vowed to in this review not to be spiteful. Oh, oh, how delightful.

The Second Trailer Rises

With the 6-minute IMAX prolouge to next years The Dark Knight Rises released before Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, it's only fitting that the new, second trailer for the movie has been released. And this time it isn't just a clip of Gordon that we can't understand. It's a clip of Bane that we can't understand. Oh, and action. Lots of action.

"Wild Wild West" Review


    Every now and again a movie is able to stand the test of time. A select few movies, capable of be being just as good, if not better, then when it first came out. The Godfather is still making us an offer we can't refuse. Back to the Future is still taking us through time. Ghostbusters still has us asking who we're gonna call. So, does Wild Wild West stand the test of time. Why, yes it's still god awful. Thank you for asking.

Weekly Overview:
These past two weeks have overall been good ones. Week 10's best was HIMYM, while it's weakest was Castle's disappointing episode. Week 11 had way more to choose from. For the best Once Upon a Time, Glee and Supernatural all had fantastic episodes, but in the end, Supernatural wins Best of the Week. For worst, while neither of these episode were really bad, both New Girl's and Community's newest episode were pretty weak. In the end though, Community win Weakest of the Week.

Best Moments:
- HIMYM's extremely shocking ending.

- The Walking Dead's extremely shocking ending.

- William Shatner's still awesome.

- That trip through Bobby's head was one I'd gladly take again.

Worst Moments:
- The Farming Dead is now offically a more appropriate title for The Walking Dead.

TV News:
- The Munsters are offically coming to NBC. Again.

- Hugh Laurie plans to retire from TV after House.

- The Walking Dead has gone on break until Feburary.
