    Here Comes 2014

    I'm adding How To Train Your Dragon 2 to the mix. I really enjoyed the first one, and the trailers for the sequel look promising. Call me cautiously optimistic.

    The Big Picture: MovieBob's Worst of 2013

    Interesting list. I only have two points to discuss: * Star Trek - Into Darkness: I really don't know how to feel about this one. There are times in the movie where I feel like it is actual Star Trek (like the opening sequence) and there are times where I feel like it's a poorly-hidden remake...

    The Big Picture: The Big Letdown

    Let's see: 1) The score was great - That much I'll agree with, though it gets a little repetitious. Hans Zimmer rarely disappoints. 2) The acting was great. - For severely undeveloped characters, I'd agree. 3) The action was flawless - No. No, no, NO. The first moments of the...

    The Big Picture: Summer's End

    Well, next week should be fun. Interesting list. I can't say that anything this summer excited me. Pacific Rim, Elysium, and Iron Man 3 were all "good, but not exciting" films, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Man Of Steel were "disappointing but not exactly bad", and... that's all I went and...

    Escape to the Movies: Elysium

    So, again, your argument is "If someone whose is rich wants to help the less fortunate, the only way they gain creditability is to not be rich." Do you realize how dumb that argument is? I guess not, as you avoided addressing my rebuttal. And, gee, you notice that Romney isn't President...

    Escape to the Movies: Elysium

    Why DO you? You only show up to complain about Bob and make sweeping generalizations that lack any supporting evidence. A rational person would've stopped watching him and moved on with his life.

    Escape to the Movies: Kick Ass 2

    I can't say I was a fan of KA1. Call me crazy, but I instinctively have a problem with Hit Girl. An eleven-year-old butchering and killing people (even if they're bad guys) is not something to get giddy about. If the movie was more a solid deconstruction of superhero stories, I'd understand. But...

    Escape to the Movies: Elysium

    1+2: Not true. In fact, you just proved my point. When you don't agree with the message a story is promoting, the easiest way to devalue the message is to attack the messenger. In this case it's "Hollywood types with money talking about poor issues." What, only poor people can star in movies...

    Escape to the Movies: Elysium

    So, the arguments flying around here are: 1) You're not allowed to make a movie about the rich vs. poor division unless you are poor yourself (and therefore can't make a blockbuster movie), otherwise it's hypocrisy (unless you side with the rich). 2) You're not allowed to make a movie with...

    The Big Picture: San Diego Comic-Con 2013

    Let's see: - Superman/Batman: I really don't know anymore. It could be an improvement over Man of Steel. Then again, it might end up being more of the same (which, for the record, is NOT what I'd like to see). And personally, there need's to be a Wonder Woman movie. It's time somebody had...

    Escape to the Movies: Red 2

    Let's see: - RED 2: you know, I can't remember much of the plot to the first one, either. It was fine as a movie, but nothing to write home about. - What, no love for R.I.P.D.? Or would we just copy-paste a bad review of Men In Black and call it a day? - Man of Steel: You know what has...

    Escape to the Movies: Man of Steel

    Bob, I pretty much agree with you on this movie. This is an imperfect movie... and some people can't seem to deal with that. It wasn't a bad movie, but it wasn't the best, either. Bob said that. Yet apparently SOME fans (not all) take offense when someone even says that much. Seriously...

    MovieBob's Re-Tales II: Tales From The Table

    Yeah, retail sucked. I'm in a job where I deal with special needs students that run for the hills, hit, and mess their pants... and it's FAR better than retail. But at least you brought your A-game to the proceedings, and that's how you feel proud of yourself.

    A Storytelling Crysis

    "I would think that Crysis 2 would get a pass on same grounds that Halflife 2 got a pass. It had been years since the first game came out, it was taken from a perspective of someone who didn't really know what was going on (least of all about Nanosuits) and I would argue that it was a...

    A Storytelling Crysis

    All I want to say is this: where was this analysis when Crysis 2 pulled the same thing? I may be the only person out there who cares that Crysis ended with the alien-invasion plot ball still being juggled and our heroes heading back into the thick of it when the sequel abruptly jumps us to...
