I haven’t been out in the shop for anything woodworking-related in a while, certainly not since before Halloween and it’s a mess. A lot of it was because, over Halloween, I was building props so fast that I just left things all over the place and it piled up. Add in the projects that I had going over the summer that got abandoned in place and the whole thing was a disaster. Time to clean up!
A Place to Share my Geeky Side With the World. Comics, movies, TV, collecting, you name it, I indulge in it.
It’s funny, but I didn’t have a lot of hope for Seth McFarlane’s love letter to Star Trek, The Orville, but from the very first episode, it was wonderful. This is everything Star Trek should be while not being Trek. The characters are memorable and unique and even if they are played largely for comedy, you come to care about them as people and other assorted critters.
So why did Star Trek Discovery suck so hard? This honestly can’t be that hard to do! But while that question will remain unanswered until my review of that show, this time we look at why The Orville pushed every single one of the right buttons.
Usually, this kind of thing would be a bad movie review, but, to be surprisingly honest, this wasn’t a bad movie. Sure, it wasn’t a great movie, but when compared to your typical Asylum entries, where everything about the movie is terrible, and not in a good way, this was actually enjoyable.
Why aren’t there more movies like that?
So here’s my look at Orcs!, a rather silly movie from a couple of years ago, which you might want to take a look at if you have a couple of free hours.
I loved Psych. Even though I avoided watching it for a long time, when I finally relented, it became one of my favorite oddball detective series of all time. I really miss it too, even though it survived for 8 seasons on USA, I wish it had never gone away. So when I heard that series creator Steve Franks wanted to bring it back for a TV movie, I was ecstatic. I just wanted more of the adventures of Shawn and Gus so I waited the long months until it finally aired and it was the first thing I watched that night.
So was it worth the wait? Guess you’re going to have to find out below the fold.
With people analyzing Justice League, trying to figure out why it failed so spectacularly, I thought I’d throw in my 2 cents. This isn’t about the movie though, it’s just about what I think Warner Bros. and DC are doing wrong with specific characters and the first character I want to look at is Batman. I don’t want to lay the blame on any particular actor or any particular director because I think Warner is primarily responsible, but here we go, why I think that movie Batman just isn’t resonating with anyone and what they need to do to fix it.
