I went through a phase in college where I read a lot of Shakespeare’s plays. I always thought that Lear was one of my favorites, but I’d never seen it performed. I just watched the ’71 movie with Paul Scofield, and found the whole thing surprisingly slow and overly arty (to say nothing of overly [...]

How much do I LOVE Robot Chicken? I would totally go see an Opera about the Wrath of Kahn. In fact, somebody should really get on top of producing that one because it is dripping with 13 kinds of awesome. Le Wrath di Khan
I Love Sarah Jane is an excellent little short about a boyhood crush and kids surviving in a world that has been overrun by zombies. There’s some gore and a lot of swearing, so stay away at work. I’m surprised at how well done it is (if we forget for a moment the explosion since [...]

Hmmm, I don’t remember The Sining being a comedy. I guess sometimes, the trailer is nothing at all like the movie.

Yesterday, I decided to go see a movie. I didn’t much care which one I saw. So, I got to the theater and The Brothers Grimm was showing pretty much right when I got there. And, the previews made it seem like it might be interesting. Plus, Terry Gilliam, so it had that going for [...]
