Movie Review – Thor: The Dark World

      4 Comments on Movie Review – Thor: The Dark World

While I enjoy most of the Marvel movies Stan Lee has been putting out for the past decade, this one is no exception.  The only problem is that I kept comparing it to Star Wars. Combining Nordic mythology with space is awesome. I never would have imagined Norse gods and demons as aliens and/or having space ships. Also, I enjoy… Read more »

Movie review: Kick-Ass 2

      No Comments on Movie review: Kick-Ass 2

Even after watching the movie, I still can’t believe that was Jim Carrey in the movie. Bravo to the make-up artist who transformed him.  Regardless of how you feel about him, he is a good actor.  He’s definitely better than Nicholas Cage and I enjoy Nicholas Cage. So, the movie.

>In no particular order, as always, these are my favorite Christmas movies. I try to watch them every year.  And yes, I’m well aware that your favorite movies are probably not on here.  If it has Jimmy Stewart in it, I sort of hate that movie.  It just doesn’t seem Christmas-y to me.

>Have you ever really watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer? Santa’s not very nice. In fact, he should be put on the naughty list for the way he treats Rudolph. Of course, I still watch the show because I love the music. Except that sappy song Clarice sings. “There’s always tomorrow…” Blah. Now it’s stuck in your head. It’s only… Read more »
