Why I do not look at comments sections anymore (and I suggest you stop too)

I realize I have said this more than once over the past couple of days, but allow me to try and persuade you all one last time - do not look at comment sections anymore.   I don't mean literally all of them - there's probably no harm in checking out the comments under some obscure website or blog that you follow, but any major site like YouTube, Facebook, TMZ, DailyMail or IMDb is bound to have a shitty comment section.   This is largely because of the fact that comment secti

What I bought at Comic-Con

Doctor Strange and Mr. Fantastic (these are somewhat old and you can't take them out of the box without cutting it open, so I won't be doing so)     The Shadow (debated getting the regular version or the Lamont Cranston/Alec Baldwin one that turns into the Shadow, landed on the former). Again, not gonna open it.     Batman (1989) blast shield (action figure included) and Batwing, still boxed.     Movie-based Dick Tracy toys that I ha

Scream - Killer Text Conversations

I made these for fun and posted them to the Scream sub on Reddit where they've been far more well liked than I expected. Basically the idea of all of them is that they're meant to be the culprits in each movie texting each other during the events of the film     Scream 4 (2011)     Scream (2022)     Scream VI (2023)     @Lynk @Wonder @Shego @Living Dead Boy @harry @Metric @Max @Slasher @V For Vendetta

My visit to the amusement park

I hadn't gone to one of these since I was about 15, so when I heard they were putting on one for ten days in my local city (with better rides than I was used to as well, my previous city didn't really get the full treatment), I was pretty excited. I had it in my head that I was gonna try all the badass shit that I was too much of a pussy to go on as a kid, and...I sorta did.   The first thing I tried was one of two rollercoasters that were there, and this line took fucking forever.

My VHS Collection

Half of you rascals probably don't even remember this format but here it is  Again, just backing this up elsewhere and figured I might as well add it here. This is all the stuff I haven't yet bothered to replace on DVD or Blu-ray, so there's a lot of kids' movies and mediocre action films/comedies here...   #-Z 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) The 6th Day (2000) Aaahh!!!

My TV series collection

I did this for another website and I figured I'd back it up here. A minimum of people will probably care but eh, it's already done. If a series is italicised, that means it's an ongoing series that I simply own every released season of thus far, and unless otherwise indicated, these are all DVD. Complete series: American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson Angel Arrested Development Ash vs. Evil Dead (1 on DVD, 2 on iTunes) Batman: The Animated Series  Birds of Prey Buf

My top 50 favorite television characters in alphabetical order

I'm sick and bored, so let's do this  My rules:   1. I'm only picking one character per series (this led to some extremely regrettable omissions).  2. Characters that originated in films, books, comic books, real life, etc. are not included, unless they were heavily adapted and popularized by the show. This means no Ash Williams, Johnny Lawrence, versions of Sherlock Holmes, etc. 3. If a character appeared in multiple shows, I pick them on the basis of the one listed series.

My Top 5 Most Hated/Least Favorite Villains

I'm not naming any villains who were kind of bland or generic (Walter Donovan, Malekith) but weren't really a major presence in their respective films or villains that are simply too funny for me to hate (Mr. Freeze). All the ones listed are poorly acted, poorly written characters who definitely drag the films they're in down.     Walker (Stuart Wilson) - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III     Dr. Claw (Rupert Everett) - Inspector Gadget    Serle

My Top 20 Biopics

Most/all of these films take some artistic license with the real people they're based on, but I will set some limits. I'm not going to count anything here like Amadeus or Quills (both great movies) that are less biopics and more just fiction loosely based on real historical figures.   And yeah, I'm a whore for Warren Beatty.   20. Schindler's List 19. Quiz Show 18. Catch Me If You Can 17. Raging Bull 16. Tombstone 15. The Soci

My Top 20 Animated TV Series

I'd specifically avoided naming animated TV series in my other blog entries, so here's me making up for it. I'm counting any kind of animation here - traditional, CGI, stop-motion, whatever. Also counting everything from cartoons with a child target audience to super raunchy, adults-only cartoons, and I'm counting every genre.   20. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law (2000-2007) 19. Clerks: The Animated Series (2000-2001) 18. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987-1996) 17. Ani

My Top 15 Time Travel Films

This is one of my favourite sub-genres in science fiction (though not every film here counts as sci-fi), so I'm also gonna add an "honourable mention" list as they very end just so the primary one isn't ridiculously long. Also, I won't count more than one film from the same series.   15. 14. 13. 12. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.

MY TOP 100 FAVORITE HORROR FLICKS OF ALL TIME!

Just to make this easier, I'm counting everything from PG-13 horror comedies to brutal borderline NC-17 pure horror flicks. However, I am not counting films that simply have some horror themes, but make practically no attempts to be scary whatsoever (Ghostbusters, Army of Darkness, What We Do in the Shadows).   100. Brain Damage (1988) 99. Night of the Demons (1988) 98. When a Stranger Calls (1979) 97. Them! (1954) 96. Pin: A Plastic Nightmare (1988) 95. From D

My Top 10 TV series that lasted only one season

Some of these are better known than others, and two specifically have a lot of martyrdom attached to them due to being cancelled so early on, but ultimately I think still deserve a lot of acclaim.   10. Garfunkel and Oates     This one was more quietly removed and I don't think it really garnered much of a fanbase, but it's an amusing if somewhat uneven show with some very offbeat, non-generic comedy.   Favorite episode: Maturity   9.

My movie reviews - Alien 3 (1992)/The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Spoilers lie within...     Rating - 8/10.   While not a masterpiece like Alien or Aliens, Alien 3 is still quite a good film, and it would have been better if the series had ended here rather than continuing with the absurd Alien: Resurrection, and the even worse Alien vs. Predator films (well, at least the latter of the two). After the events of Aliens, the supposedly malfunctioning Sulaco launches an escape pod, which crashes on Fiorina 161, a mostly uninhabite
