The Walking Dead: Episode 3 Review

Firstly, my apologies for being a bit late on this review. I felt I needed to watch this one twice due to all the personal relationships being re-established in this episode.
I really enjoyed the opening scene with Merle talking about his war experiences. We knew as the audience that he had nobody to converse with and at times I almost felt like he was talking to the Cameraman but his dialogue went between  his ramblings …

Chuck vs. The Fear of Death Review

Chuck. It’s perhaps one of my favorite shows to tune in to. It skillfully meshes comedy, action and drama into a wonderful hour of television. I can think of only a handful of times in the shows 4 seasons where an episode was weak. This past Monday’s episode was not one of the weaker ones.
Opening on the heels of the previous episode, Chuck (played by Zachary Levi) has lost the Intersect, …

Due Date

I love movies like this because they deliver exactly what they advertise. You know what type of movie you are in for and can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the comedy. I do like movies that require more thought, but occasionally you want the mindless entertainment. This is exactly what I expect from director Todd Phillips. The movie had a plot, a few moments with some heart to it, and …

Megamind

This was a pretty good movie. I just want to make clear that I did enjoy the movie before I get in to a couple issues with the movie industry the movie brought to mind.
First, I really hate when something that should have been a big reveal moment is totally given away by the previews. The writers and creators had a great plot twist (Metro Man didn’t die) that could have been a …

Song from Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Harry Dances with Hermione

I saw Harry Potter this weekend and I love it. I’m still collecting my thoughts for a full review but wanted to share something you might find helpful. In the scene where Harry dances with Hermione the song that plays stood out to me so I did some research. Turns out it’s O Children by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

In the living room there was a piano

This song is One of These Days by Michelle Branch. It’s not a great song, it might not even be a good song. I’ll never know because it means so much more to me than the derivative pop that it probably is. For me it’s wrapped up in a story, in a moment of meaning that I’ll never forget and from which this song cannot be extricated.

The Walking Dead: Episode 2 ‘Guts, Guts and yet more Guts’

The episode title of this the 2nd episode of the 1st series is short but oh so accurate. Not only is it so viscerally displayed to the viewer but it sums up the emotional reserves that the characters are drawing on as well as the actions they will take to escape alive. While I do rehash some of the plot, I would hope that you have seen the things that I have seen along the way.
