Thor: Ragnarok

I finally got around to seeing Thor 3.  This one is getting universally good reviews so you’ve probably seen it already.  Thor was my favorite of the initial Marvel character movies and I would still rank it very high. I came away from Ragnarok very disappointed. The cold open of this movie really sets the […]

D&D Next Wishlist

As most respectable blogs have reported, Wizards of the Coast will be releasing D&D Next as Dungeons & Dragons next summer, likely to coincide with gencon.  For the next 8 months, people are going to volley back and forth as to what will be included.  Due to the recent announcement of the next season of […]

Legacy of the Crystal Shard Week 3 – This kinda blows

So, I have a problem with this season of D&D Encounters.  Mostly, its fucking boring.  There is nothing fun to do with the setting or in the adventures.  Let me back up a bit first.  I started going to the Encounters program back in season 2, Dark Sun.  I quit 8 weeks later, around the […]

Day of the Doctor

I don’t really want to write this but I feel compelled to. Day of the Doctor sucks.  It’s a nostalgic feel good episode that really pisses on the canon established by the new series in a disgraceful way for the sake of forcing a happy ending where none should exist.  But it can also be […]

Legacy of the Crystal Shard Kickoff

I played the opening session of Murder in Baldur’s gate and yesterday I played the opening to the new encounters season, Legacy of the Crystal Shard.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the quality of adventures being put out by Wizards of the Coast has risen dramatically.  And I put some thought […]

Ender’s Game

I have a better title in mind for this movie: The Film Where No Fucks Were Given. I hated this movie and it made me really mad.  And its completely because I enjoy the book and there was too much stuff changed from the book to still be a good story.  I’ll cop to that, […]

American Horror Story

I really did not like the first two seasons of American Horror Story.  This one I enjoy though.  And I’ve been trying to figure out why for the past 3 weeks.  Bit difficult when I have neither the time nor will to watch the first season again.  I liked the pilot because it was a […]

NBC’s Dracula

This is a weird show.  It starts off with a mysterious dude freeing Dracula from some kind of prison, of course resurrecting him with the blood of the hapless son of a bitch he brought with him.  From there, we go to London 1896 where Dracula pretends to be an American industrialist and shows off […]

Carrie

This movie was okay.  I didn’t feel like I was wasting my time seeing this movie because I’m a big fan of Stephen King, Julianne Moore, and Chloe Moretz.  So no matter how bad it was, I knew I would have a good time.  That said, I can’t recommend this movie to you. Lets talk […]

Pacific Rim

I think I have solid geek credentials.  I’m a big D&D fan with an encyclopedia-like knowledge of the Song of Ice & Fire Series.  I’ve forgotten more about the Simpsons than most plebs will ever achieve.  I feel a little guilty that I did not like Pacific Rim.  I’m sorry, but I just don’t get […]
