Big Little Lies: The Real Truth

So every year when I watch the Emmy’s, I always get a plethora of new shoes to check out. And this year did not disappoint in giving me some goodies. But none stood out quite as well as HBO’s Big Little Lies. I am a HUGE fan of the who done it murder mystery genre. And a murder mystery set up where you don’t even know who is dead? Not until the final moments of the last episode of the series? Welcome to the world of Big Little Lies. This series takes you on a ride filled with laughter, pain, jealousy and snark, where someone doesn’t make it out alive.

In Death: A Look Behind the Series

Going to preface this by saying that I am not a giant romance novel fan. You get a few good ones, but overall I don’t love to fully immerse myself in the genre. So I was a little bit leery of giving the In Death Book series a shot, as J.D. Robb was Nora Roberts pen name. But my sister got me a book called “Remember When” which was 2 separate stories, one written by Roberts the other Robb. I gotta say I am glad I gave it a shot. A book about a diamond heist in 2003, where a portion of the diamonds are never found. The second half takes place with the characters from Robb’s series 50+ years in the future, where the rest of the diamonds are being pursued. I was sucked in, and decided to give the rest of the series a shot.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Once upon a time, there was a young boy who had no family, no home, and no friends. All the boy had were the clocks of the train station in Paris and the silent automaton sitting in his little garret. Day after day, he would wind the clocks and steal his dinner. At night, he would work on the mechanical figure with parts pocketed from a wind-up toy shop. One day, he is caught by the shop owner, one day he makes friends with the shop owner’s granddaughter. One day, his precarious life is thrown upside down and changed.

Preacher And Their Dynamic Duo

So I’ve been on a Preacher kick lately. I binge watched the show 3 episodes in to season 2. This show is a wild ride and often does things that people won’t expect. Having never read the comics, I thoroughly enjoy a show that keeps me so often surprised at what I just watched. But Season 2 is far superior to Season 1 for one reason. And that is the introduction of The Grail, and it’s soldiers Lady Featherstone And F.J. Hoover. The 2 of them on screen have a weird chemistry together that works when they are in scenes together.

Actor Spotlight: Daniel Newman

Daniel Newman is one of the newer members on the show The Walking Dead. So I thought it would be fun to shine a light on just who and what he brings The Walking Dead. Daniel was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in a small rural farm town outside the city. He attended Yale and William Espers acting school to study the art. He has been a model and musician. His band, the Vanderbilts, is producing a rock album with Legendary Producer Tony Shimkin. So it appears that he is going to be a very busy guy here in the near future between this and next season TWD.

Quest for 100: Spider-Man Homecoming

I hope everyone is doing well. Welcome back to another issue of my quest to watch 100 movies in the theater this year. I’m sure lot’s of you are already excited about this film, and seeing Spidey come back to the MCU is just one of many reasons why you should be excited to go see this movie immediately.
A bold move by Sony
First off. I am very excited that Sony, and Marvel, agreed to bring Spider-man back into the MCU. This has to be the best combination since peanut butter and jelly, or bacon and bacon. They managed to find a perfect combination of films here. Lighthearted enough to keep the kiddos entertained – yet still threatening, and dangerous enough for the fanboys to make sure their nerd boners fly at full mast for the entire film.

GOT: New Trailer Released and Breakdown

John Barrowman Announces New Comic Book Series

There is a reason this is one of my favorite humans on the planet. He sings, He dances, he is creative, funny and generous. He has no shame, and willingly shares himself with his fans via Social Media. What can John Barrowman not accomplish at this point? Well you can’t add writing to the list. He has been writing for a while now with his sister. They have written comics covering the backstory of his Malcolm Merlyn Character. For anyone who knows anything about Barrowman, the fact that he is a comic book geek is common knowledge. So getting to play a role like Merlyn and write comics about him? That is the ultimate fanboy dream right there.

Let’s Talk About the Invisible Woman

In amongst all the Wonder Woman hype, I want to remind y’all of Susan Storm-Richards, A.K.A. The Invisible Woman. No, not because of Jessica Alba. Having watched Jessica in Dark Angel, I blame poorly written characterization on her foray into the Fantastic Four. My choice to vote for in this week’s Nerd Fight is the best performance of Sue because -from the beginning of the Fantastic Four in 1961 to 2017 where her book has been canceled, but she lives on in other Marvel adventures- I look at her and I see what exemplifies women: powerful patience, unyielding resolve, and ferocious defense of those they love.

Wonder Woman Quest for 100

Thank-you all for joining me on my Quest to watch 100 movies in the theater in one year. If you have read any of my other entries, you know I also like to suggest if you should enjoy a few adult beverages to make the movies I see more enjoyable.

Today, I have a special entry in my quest for 100. Last night I got to enjoy one of my favorite genres in movies today, a super hero film. What made this particular Super Hero film special though is the fact Wonder Woman did something that the DC Universe has been struggling to accomplish with their previous films Batman VS. Superman and arguably even before that with Man of Steel.

Pop Culture Icon: Terry Pratchett – The man, the myth, the magic! Happy Birthday wishes to a man dearly missed

Friends, family, and other Disc World Fans. Today is the late and greatly lamented Terry Pratchett’s birthday. The world lost this amazing author on March 12, 2015. Long before his time if you ask me at the ripe young age of 66. Sir Pratchett was most famous for his Disc World series and he was a Sir having been knighted by the Queen of England. We will touch on that a little later under his Honors section. Terry brought us wonder and silliness. Terry took puns to an art form and made you giggle with the little jokes you thought were just between you and him. All his works seemed to be a personal story told to me every time I sat down to read one. I hope to bring you some of his greatness but know I will fall short in the attempt.

“American Gods” By Neil Gaiman – A book review

Well the wait is over and I have finished off American Gods by Neil Gaiman. This book was ambitious from the start. With the new upcoming STARS television show based on the book this book is back on the minds of many people. Briefly because you know I hate spoilers the book follows our “hero” on his trip of discovery about the hidden world of belief and all the hodge-podge of Gods that litter the American Country side as the old fights with the new for survival. I hope I didn’t give away to much with that but unfortunately I probably did.

Questions About GOT Seasons 7

OK so who else is super excited GOT is back from hiatus in 3 months? 3 months that we nerds now get to endlessly discuss and analyze the teaser trailers released by HBO. 2 trailers have been released as of now, one called “The Long Walk” and the second called “Sigils.” Neither trailer honestly offers up a whole lot of content. They were better however then watching ice melt for an hour to get the release date. And no, I did not watch the full block melt. I’m crazy but HBO found the crazy line I won’t cross.

Ghost Rider Companions (The Heart of Ghost Rider)

Please note that some of this article should be for mature readers only. Reader discretion is advised. Greetings Flame Heads. It is with sadness that I report that the latest series of Ghost Rider has been cancelled. However, the future of Ghost Rider will never be in doubt. We just have to wait a little longer. Like the fabled phoenix, Ghost Rider will rise from the ashes born anew and vengeance will be served. Ghost Rider has this feature built in him that allows any writer to change the person who bears the burden of the Spirt of Vengeance. You can see an article I wrote regarding this mechanism here (I also talk about Ghost Rider’s relationship to Doctor Who). With the cancelling of Ghost Rider, I am looking at why Ghost Rider is appealing to artists and writers. But I also want to keep an honest eye as to why the series cannot grab enough readers to maintain the series

Let’s Talk Dead – The Walking Dead from AMC

I was thinking before I started talking about the TV show I’d talk a little about myself first and why I want to talk about The Walking Dead. Anyone that knows me knows I had a big fear of anything zombies. The Night of the Living Dead was a movie that gave me nightmares more then Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elem Street. I do love my horror movies but anything with zombies in it would get me to sleep with the lights on. So a few years back I had a friend that I played Aion with ( non-zombie game). She had talked me into playing Left 4 Dead with her. She had help me get over my fear of zombie by making me kill them in that game. She also talk me into The Walking Dead and from then on I’ve become a fan of the show. I did just finish up the season last Sunday and now stuck waiting for the next season which will not be back on AMC till October. Yes we got to wait to find out what happens and we’re left with another cliff hanger which any fan knows they like to do to us.
