    Going by just the trailer, this'll be an great film! Any trailer that incorporates a sci-fi aesthetic with Blue Suede's "Hooked On a Feeling"...6 stars out of 5!!

    Movie Defense Force: Super Mario Bros.

    You finally really did it. You maniac!! You blew up the misconception over this film!!! OH, DAMN YOU! G**DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL! (On an unrelated note, think you can defend the 2001 remake of "Planet of the Apes"? SERIOUSLY doubt it...)

    Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular: House on the Hill

    I don't have any problems with Jim's writing style His humoresque prose always ekes out a smile I like his stick-to-it-ness; he just will not yield His poems aren't bad; they're just out in left field Yahtzee's are thoughtful and mem'ry-provoking Jim's may be weird but, remember, he's...

    Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular: Because I Could Not Stop For Loading Times

    THE RIVALS by Chris Wolvie There once were two rivals, one red and one blue Jumping on foes was one thing they'd both do One would punch bricks for each mushroom and flower The other would speed at umpteen miles an hour They had the same goal; yes, they had the same ends Freeing the...

    Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular: A Tale of Two Poets

    (In the interest of equal time...) "The Draconian Tale" by Jim Sterling I'll tell you a story of "Diablo III" A game that I wish could be talked of with glee And yet, sadly, such praise could not be Because of its failed internet strategy I don't like to complain - oh, I do hate to...

    Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular: A Tale of Two Poets

    The Good, the Bad, and the Sequel

    If you are no longer showing "Extra Credits" (even the past ones), Escapist, I *strongly* suggest you change the name of this segment, as the "Extra" part was no doubt used because of James Portnow's appearance. While you're at it, Escapist, I also suggest that you remove all "Extra Credits"...

    Goin to see transformers

    I saw the first one on the Wednesday it came out and liked it. I saw the second one on the Wednesday IT came out and...was too stunned to call it God-awful for another few weeks. I *shall* see the third one tomorrow. After all, this will be the - as I call it - "End of an Error". And, with...

    A Harry Potter Movie Question

    I heard about the series a lot. Got dragged to the first movie by my then-10-yr-old eldest nephew, who was big on the books. After seeing the movie (twice, mind you), I decided I should catch-up on the books to prepare for the inevitable sequels. Read through them twice so far. The...

    Escape to the Movies: MovieBob: Oscars 2011

    Since Stephen Colbert decided not to do a bi-annual "The DaColbert Code" to predict the Oscars, I'll do it right here, doing word association chains based on last year's winners. It may not be as long (or as funny) as Colbert's way of doing it...but who IS, really? BEST ACTOR Jeff Bridges...

    So You Dig Fictional Characters? Does Your Family/Friends Know?

    Not really "love"...but a very deep admiration for Ariel the Little Mermaid. Family knows...don't really care.
