Rim of the World

I wrote, some years back, that the lack of character development in Pacific Rim was acceptable, as the characters were all archetypes. From Eager Rookie to Shouty Leader, not one character in the movie was much more than a stock archetype - many from Japanese media....

Addams Family

Addams Family

I want to give some love to the trailer for the upcoming Addams Family movie. It's animated, and while exaggerated, the characters are really quite close to the original Charles Addams art. It's neat to see that. The weirdness is on full display as well, which is to...

And suddenly everyone on my Facebook is sharing the SW9 trailer. I'm mostly impressed. The flip with the TIE fighter looks amazing, and we all know what a stickler JJ is for practical effects! Many Bothans died to bring you that stunt. Not gonna lie, seeing Billy Dee...

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Quick note - spell check knows his last name. That says something. Anyway, breaking this morning is that Mr. Smollett not only paid friends to stage an attack, but also sent the 'suspicious letter' the week before. The letter is going to be the main problem, as it is...

The Jussie Smollett Saga

When do sins 'fall off'? This has become a topic of discussion in American politics, with the revelation that the Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, appears in either blackface or KKK robes in his college yearbook; the Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, stands accused of...
