Movie Review: Ultimate Avengers: The Movie 
Monday, July 17, 2006, 08:05 PM - Review


Ultimate Avengers: The Movie is a decent background story to the Ultimate comic book version of The Avengers. It doesn't have the animation of Batman: The Animated Series or Superman, but it beats He-Man or ThunderCats, and equals G.I. Joe: The Movie. Voice-overs are decent, the storyline works and the action sequences are very good.

Overall: 2.5 of 5

Movie Review: Superman Returns 
Friday, July 14, 2006, 08:03 PM - Review


You already believe a man can fly ... and become human ... but you haven't seen him disappear.

Superman Returns shows all that and more. It's an amazing sequel to the first two Superman movies (yes, I know there are more than two movies, but the other 2 don't count), especially Brandon Routh who has an uncanny resemblance to Christopher Reeve, both in acting and voice.

As usual for this year's blockbuster movies, the special effects are amazing (you can't tell the cgi from the actual reality!), and unlike another movies this year, the plot and acting are pretty good, too.

Overall: 4.5 of 5

TV Review: Blade: The Series 
Thursday, July 13, 2006, 07:37 PM - Review
Blade: The Series is cliche riden and low-budget with lots of action, decent plots, but sub-par acting.

Only watch if you're a Blade fan.

Overall: 1.5 of 5

Movie Review: District B13 
Saturday, July 1, 2006, 11:24 AM - Review
So, Like, there's this really cool fad called Parkour (a.k.a free running), right? And like this trailer for this French movie called District 13 (Banlieue 13) is like all jumping and martial arts, right? And, like, even though it's in French and has sub-titles, it still better than most of the American action movies released this summer!

Jackie Chan would like this movie, as it's the style of stunts he does.

Jobs vs Gates 
Saturday, June 24, 2006, 11:05 AM - TV
Is it just me, but do the "characters" in the new Mac vs PC commercials look alot like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates?

It's a good way of identifying which system is which, but it plays with computer stereotypes.

The commercials are popular enough that they've been parodied already.
