LG 47LH50

I got an LG 47LH50 to replace my old 30″ CRT (sold to a neighbor for $40 after failing to find a friend who wanted it for free). It has most of the features that modern LCDs have these days, like a 120Hz mode (which I don’t like, since it makes things too videoy). The [...]

The Dark Knight

It’s been a few days since I first saw the movie (Friday at 12:01 AM of course) and I’m still stunned by its awesomeness. It stands on its own as one of the best crime dramas I’ve ever seen, but throw in the Batman universe’s characters and I was nergasming for 2.5 hours straight. Imagine [...]

In a nutshell, I liked it, but it’s not quite the same as the others. At first I felt like they were trying too hard to capture the essence of the first 3 movies, but eventually I got into it and was able to enjoy it. Harrison Ford is completely fine in the movie. Yes, [...]

12 hours of movies

Today I went to an event at the local AMC theater that showed all 5 Academy Award Best Picture nominees. I’m not sure why these were the Academy’s top 5, but it’s always a mystery. I judged them on their entertainment value to me, and not necessarily their worthiness for being nominated. Michael Clayton – [...]


For the love of all that is holy, go see Superbad. Pure. Hilarity.

What I’m Watching

NBC has my heart this season. The best show on television (IMHO) is Battlestar Galactica on the Sci-Fi Channel (owned by NBC). Think it’s too nerdy for you? Yes, it takes place in space and yes, there is battling with cybernetic organisms, but when you find yourself cheering on an insurgency consisting of human suicide [...]

Pre-Nolan Batman

So why exactly are Tim Burton’s Batman movies considered good? I recently finished watching Batman and Batman Returns, and while they’re certainly a step above Joel Schumacher’s travesties, they’re still a bit campy. Especially the penguins with rockets on their back. The Prince music in the first one is especially unnecessary. There are a couple [...]

Batman Begins

I know I have a lot of blogging to do for the London trip, but when you go on vacation, you always come back to a LOT of things to do. I’ll get to it. But for now, let me discuss the awesomest movie I’ve seen in a long time. I’m so happy Batman Begins [...]

Animated DC Logo

Here’s the new DC logo as it will appear in front of DC Comics movies (like the so-far-well-reviewed Batman Begins). It’s a rather large animated gif, so let it load, and it’ll continually loop. Kind of rips off Marvel’s logo, but that’s not such a bad thing.

Fuck the haters. This movie was awesome. So awesome I saw it twice. In the same day. Some coworkers and I decided to see a 1:20 PM show and catch some food afterwards since there’s a TGI Friday’s in the same parking lot. One of my former coworkers (Jeremy) couldn’t make it to our afternoon [...]
