Batman: The Killing Joke [Fathom Movie Event]

Let me reiterate that I do not read American comics. No matter how much I love the MCU, no matter how much I enjoy the Arrowverse, no matter that I've seen so many of the cartoons... I do not read American comics (aside from the new Marvel Star Wars comics - cause those are Star Wars).

Oxenfree [PC Game]

Olly Olly Oxenfree.
Olly Olly Oxenfree.
So the children sing and play games, and when the games ends they can all come out from hiding.
Again - on a boat.

Star Trek Beyond [Movie Review]

I've been mulling over what words to start this post with... and I've finally decided.

"Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before."
- Kirk speaking the Captain's Oath at the end of Star Trek into Darkness.

Warcraft [Movie Review]

Discount movie day!
Sure I've seen Zootopia a few more times at the dollar theater... but today I went to see a movie I had yet to see. I wasn't certain it was going to be worth matinee price at the normal run theaters... but I did pay for 3D at the discount theater.

Mini Metro [PC Game]

The Steam Summer Sale has ended.
I was more restrained this time than I was in their Winter Sale.
I only nabbed four games, less than half of what I got last time.

Rifftrax Live: MST3K Reunion Show [Fathom Event Review]

The year was 1988. The place was a Minnesotan public access channel known as KTMA.
From these humble beginnings would come an American Comedy Icon - Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Game of Throne "The Winds of Winter" (S6 - E10) [TV Review]

I didn't know what to expect from the finale of season six. In general the best episode in a season is actually the penultimate episode. In both seasons four and five the penultimate episode was the stronger episode.
Not this time. Oh, the Battle of the Bastards was quite good... but...

Independence Day Resurgence [Movie Review]

Damn was it actually 20 years ago that I saw Independence Day in theaters? I don't even think my local megaplex cinema was even open at the time since the first movie I saw there was The Fifth Element and that movie won't be 20 until next summer...

Game of Throne "Battle of the Bastards" (S6 - E09) [TV Review]

Bastard Fight! Everybody there's gonna be a bastard fight!
Well this was a very hyped up episode.
Maybe it even deserved the hype.
It was a very good episode from my point of view.

Game of Throne "No One" (S6 - E08) [TV Review]

She runs well for someone who has been gut stabbed.
Season Six has been a very strange season to watch.
It is the first season that we are really beyond the books, but at times we are also stuck back in book 3 and sometimes in book 5. And there are times when the season just seems to go where it wants with little care for what came before...

Game of Throne "The Broken Man" (S6 - E07) [TV Review]

This episode began rather oddly. No opening credits / music. Just straight into the episode.

I've not done this in a while.
But how about today we get a live reaction blog.

I'll be typing this as the episode airs. I doubt that I will include any time stamps.

Game of Throne "Blood of my Blood" (S6 - E06) [TV Review]

Well last episode had a haunting title, and this one is very very relevant to the episode.
The writers have gotten titles down.

X-Men Apocalypse [Movie Review]

Ah, summer blockbuster movies. So much fun.
I kinda wish I had watched both First Class and Days of Future Past before seeing this... just so they were fresh in my mind.

Game of Throne "The Door" (S6 - E05) [TV Review]

Mother have mercy on us all!
The was quite an episode, was it not?

Game of Throne "Book of the Stranger" (S6 - E04) [TV Review]

This episode surprised me.
A lot happened, things actually have begun to move forward. Not everything... but enough.
And we keep returning to events from book 3...
