I Come to Praise #Suckerpunch, not to bury it.

Posted April 7, 2011 by Tom Drake

I really liked this movie. I wanted to like it more. First, let me start with the positive. Zack Snyder is an amazing director. He has a sharp visual style that really knows how to tell a story. In fact, one of the best parts of the movie, the initial sequence which sets the whole [...]

Wild Talents: #Progintor

Posted March 24, 2011 by Tom Drake

I don’t play rpg’s much these days, for a lot of reasons, including the fact that my own company crashed and burned into the ground (though I have one big project still in the works), the fact that I ‘retired’ from what I consider a pretty damn good ‘career’ that I wanted to end on [...]

#Clone Wars

Posted March 23, 2011 by Tom Drake

So regardless of your opinion of the prequels, you might have some interest in the still ongoing computer animated Saga of the Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. I’ve seen a few of these, and I think they’re pretty solidly written though they are definitely geared towards males under the age of 10. I think the [...]

#Suckerpunch Cometh

Posted March 22, 2011 by Tom Drake

So there has been a lot of hype about this movie, and with good reason. First, because the guy directing it, Zack Snyder, is the guy who directed 300 and Watchmen, and who is also working with Nolan to resurrect Superman in a non lame way. Also, the protagonist is the same girl who (all [...]

Posted March 17, 2011 by Tom Drake

So we’ve started at the first hints of the really good section of the year where a lot of really interesting movies come out before the vast wasteland that appears to be the latter half of the year. In fact, if you’re a sci fi and movie fan, you could literally see a movie every [...]

#Mars Needs Taste

Posted March 16, 2011 by Tom Drake

Sometimes I am reluctant to kick a movie when it is down. I mean, I like Berkley Breathed….he’s the guy who created Bloom County and Doonesbury…(you know that Liberal comic that pissed off conservatives so much in the 70′s and 80′s?). I LIKE Roger Zemeckis. He’s the guy that brought us Roger Rabbit. I mean [...]

#Bigfoot Sues the US Government

Posted March 15, 2011 by Tom Drake

So this guy thinks it will be funny putting on a Big Foot costume and going around and scaring the crap out of people in State Parks and filming their reactions. OK. Kind of weird, but no big deal. Apparently it was a hit because he like…wanted to do it all over again. Only the [...]

Two Con Review: #Anachrocon and #Conooga

Posted March 2, 2011 by Tom Drake

So I had the priviledge of attending two fun cons in as many weekends. Last weekend I got to attend Anachrocon, which is double billed as a historical/costuming con and Steampunk. Technically its both, but the interest in Steam Punk is so high that the vast majority of the panels focused on Steampunk itself or [...]
