Ok, if you haven’t gone out to see this movie yet what are you waiting for?  This is not only one of the best of the Marvel comic book films, it’s just a great movie for everyone.  It’s got action of course, but there’s a solid story, good acting and some wonderful character moments too.  I urge you to go see one of the coolest films of the year so far.  I promise that you will definitely enjoy it and have a very fun time.  Also, make sure to stay until the very end as there are two little scenes during the credits to enjoy.  Have fun!

Knights of the Dinner Table – Kickstarter

kodt_live1

If you have ever been a table top gamer (or a gamer of any kind), there is a Kickstarter project going right now to fund a cool, live action web series based on the popular gaming comic, “Knights of the Dinner Table.”  I’ve read this comic for over 1o years and month to month it’s always great and takes me back to the days of rolling dice and table top gaming.  Check out their Kickstarter page HERE and the proposal short video they made in order to get this project going.  I really hope they meet their goals and this happens.  I so want to see this!  Donate now!

 

 

“Desolation of Smaug” – is lots of fun!

I saw the second part to “The Hobbit” trilogy of films a couple weeks back and it was great.  I wasn’t a huge fan of all the additions and changes Peter Jackson is making with these films, but pputting that aside this movie is just a great thrill ride.  Really loved being back in that world and enjoyed the new content too.  The 3-D was pretty useless but I still saw it in IMAX anyway.  Go see this in the theaters – it’s a really good time!

 

“Catching Fire” – good movie

Finally got a chance to see “Catching Fire” today (the second of the “Hunger Games” books – and my favorite).  They did a really good job with the film and I enjoyed it quite a bit.  Of course, a few parts had to be cut for time but it was great to be back in this world with these characters and see their struggles against the oppressive government.  Down below is a music video featuring clips from both films so far along with music from the film (a great Coldplay song).  So, enjoy this and get out to see this cool movie soon!

“Thor: The Dark World”

Thor continues to hammer out the competition at the box office in it’s second week of release.  This sequel to the first film is bigger in just about every way, has lots of action and humor too.  I really enjoyed it and I think most everyone else will too – at least those that enjoy a fun, action adventure like this.  Go check it out soon and have fun!

 

Episode VII: Dec. 18, 2015

So, it’s official.  The next film in the “Star Wars” sage will open in about two years on December 18, 2015.  It seems a long way off, but they actually will start filming this in 2014 so we should start hearing lots of next in the next few months.  Here’s the official statement from Disney & Co.

“Ender’s Game” – movie opens

The movie “Ender’s Game” just opened in theater’s this past Friday.  I went out to see it yesterday and really enjoyed it.  I read the book several years ago and felt they do a good job adapting the story to the big screen.  Actor Asa Butterfield as Ender and Harrison Ford as his commander are both very good.  I know there is a little controversy surroudning this film but I think you can still enjoy it for what the movie has to say and it is a good adaptation of the novel.  Check out this TV spot below.
