Inspired by Edie Beale’s awesome thread on the next big disrupter, I wanna know which apps y’all have downloaded that have made some little bit of your life just a little bit smoother. As always welcome to the mostly Thursday* Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, Clashtalk, …
This week WinnieTheWoot wants to know what movie you watch most frequently.
Back in 1975, I had a brief passion for a new Saturday television show, a Pavlovian response to all things Gerry Anderson. This new treat was called Space:1999 and followed a colony of astronauts marooned on Moonbase Alpha when unexpectedly exiled from our solar system after an accident with nuclear waste. The show…
I’ve been kind of fascinated by the extreme gulf between critical and audience reaction to The Orville, the new Sci-Fi adventure comedy that premièred on Sunday. Rotten Tomatoes currently says the show’s scored 22% positive in critical reviews but the audience score is 90%. It’s not just on Rotten Tomatoes I see this…
Today two women have a terrible experience in a terrible episode and then a Wraith comes to dinner.
Harrow County is without a doubt one of the best horror comics out there. Hell, one of the best comics period! I look forward to each issue’s release like its my own personal little Christmas.
Hello and welcome to WednesdayBookClub. My name is Geesejuggler and I’ve been really frazzled this week. More on that later so now onto book club!!
I’ve got a lot of reading to do as part of a one year post-graduate diploma I’m doing. The cramp in my hand from scrolling down PDFs and Word documents led me to think it might be time to invest in a tablet of some sort and I eventually plumped for a 2017 Ipad.
So The Orville is getting a lot of flak from critics for not being the Star Trek parody that it was advertised as, but rather just...Star Trek with some jokes. io9 even had a list of five science fiction comedies they thought were better than The Orville. They just left one out, the one that made the most sense: Quark…
The vessel The Orville from the new series The Orville staring whatshisname, looks like a bottle opener to me. Like if you could crack open a few cold ones at the same time with this... thing. Too bad I can’t make some scratch out of
my this idea.
It looks like Daniel Dae Kim may take over for Ed Skrein who is white and was going to play an Asian character.
A massive, run down Italian manor serves as a setting for strange murderous games in 1972's cumbersomely titled Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key (Il tuo vizio è una stanza chiusa e solo io ne ho la chiave). The second giallo film I’ve seen based on my favourite Edgar Allan Poe story, “The Black Cat”,…
So It is a surprising success and other Stephen King adaptations are on their way — including one of Gerald’s Game, which is set to premiere on Netflix on September 29, directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush, and Ouija: Origin of Evil). But Stephen King has written so many stories that would make great films. Here…
I’m not going to regale you with a full review as there are plenty of those floating around, already. What I will tell you about are some of the things that stayed with me after seeing IT twice in theaters in three days. (Spoilers below.)
Here we are again at the end of another season. No word on whether or not it’s being renewed or not but I’m hoping that it is. Welcome to the Preacher season 2 episode 13 “The End of the Road” spoilerific reaction thread, where you can your thoughts on the show as it plays out or after it’s done.
Setting up a shark pool in your basement. Particularly if the casualty rates among the fish is 30%.
I’m not a big Seth MacFarlane fan but I still decided to give the first episode of The Orville a watch. As has been pointed out on many places online the show is a bit all over the place but I liked the pilot enough to watch the next episode.
