George R. R. Martin's HBO series returns April 1st, 2012

Oh boy, can’t say we’re not salivating for the epic Game Of Thrones to return — one of the pillars of our Holy Television Triumverate along with Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. Sure there are some other pretty great shows on, but those three really stand head and shoulders above all else on the LCD/LED/plasma […]

Sometimes giant samurais, mechs, dragons & blondes In schoolgirl outfits CAN save your movie

OK, I know Miss Madeleine annihilated Sucker Punch last week with a blisteringly accurate review, but after seeing it this week I just gotta throw in my 2 cents. First off, she’s technically 100% right — the movie was riddled with weakness and flaws: the acting was atrocious (Vanessa Hudgens is a Golden Raspberry frontrunner), […]
