    Let's Talk About the Ending of Frozen

    Prince Charming not being so charming? Gee, where have I seen that [http://www.comicvine.com/prince-charming/4005-5961/], before? Snarkiness aside, it's cool to see Disney, the Factory of Happy Endings, apply such a twist to spice things up for the next generation.

    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review - Episode 5: Girl In The Flower Dress

    I liked how the show acknowledged how stupid "Scorch" was as a codename, but then they kept going with it, and it was just annoying to hear. Sounds like the name of a Rob Liefeld creation. Aside from that, the episode was a fairly weak one, in my opinion. Just waiting for when they do finally...

    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review - Episode 4: Eye Spy

    I liked this episode well enough. The tone from the previous one carried over, which I like far better than the first two episodes. It's one thing to have comedic relief to break up the tension, but it's another thing entirely to have forced, awkward humor in my face. That said, at least the two...

    Portal Fan Film Visits GLaDOS's Origins

    ...That's usually what happens when you adapt something from one form to another. Only in keeping the foundation of the original concept is what a good adaptation makes. Also, I wouldn't want Abrams anywhere near Portal. Edgar Wright, on the other hand...

    No Right Answer: Superhero That Most Deserves a TV Series

    "Has to be cost-effective." So, how do you do pull off the flying and energy blast-shooting Ms. Marvel television show, Chris? I know the most TV shows, nowadays, have really good budgets behind them to the point where they're almost as good as movies; but still. It'd be easier to make a...

    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review - Episode 1: Pilot

    Unless I'm mistaken, he did appear to be disoriented from the serum, which could imply that it was suppose to relax the subject (and we see him passed out later). I do recall him being very annoyed by this, but by then he was already succumbing to the effects.

    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review - Episode 1: Pilot

    I was left feeling okay with the pilot. Can't say that I can name off any of the characters who are not named Agent Coulson or Maria Hill. I guess Sky was somewhat memorable, if slightly annoying; but not quite as annoying as the two techies. I was really, really hoping that the super-powered...

    Escape to the Movies: The Wolverine

    I was left feeling that it was just an okay film. The giant Silver Samurai suit was pretty silly, in my opinion. I liked the fight sequence between Logan and Shingen, what with how it was shot. The heavy shadows made it look like a (80's era) Frank Miller drawing. Wished the fight with the...

    Escape to the Movies: The Great Gatsby

    Heaven forbid a guy named "Electro" looks like he's made of electricity, as oppose to wearing a bright green and yellow costume with a lightning bolt mask. And yes, I am aware that Foxx looks more like an electrified Smurf, and I could not care less about that. With the inclusion of the Rhino...

    Let's Watch Another Man Of Steel Trailer

    I'm calling it now: those tentacle things are some form of Brainiac.

    I wasn't aware I was being serious in my initial comment.

    NPD's March Numbers Show Bioshock And Tomb Raider at The Top

    Just look at how much of a failure Tomb Raider is. It's only one of the top five selling games for the month of March. Square Enix should really be ashamed of publishing it.

    Square Enix "Preparing" Final Fantasy Versus XIII Announcement

    I'm still waiting for Square to announce their over-blown predictions for how it'll sell, since Tomb Raider and Hitman tanked, according to their magic 8-ball.

    Capcom Killed Gritty Mega Man FPS

    A 3rd-person, over-the-shoulder-style of shooter makes more sense for Mega Man than 1st-person, in my opinion. And not like Gears of War, mind you, but something similar to Vanquish, what with the turbo-sliding and stuff.
