BBC America has a fun initiative to introduce a new generation to the wonderful sci fi series Doctor Who. In this initiative they ask the fans of the show to tweet about their first experience with The Doctor and some of their favorite moments. They are to then tag said tweets with #newtoWho. All this is a lead up to the next season of the show that starts this week. Since I am a big fan of the series and I have this forum to spew out my opinions about things, I figured I would throw my fez into the ring. So what follows is my first account of watching the show and a smattering of some of my favorite moments. This is my story. (more…)

I have so many TV shows that I keep up with (I would tell you how many but the number might frighten some of you) that I have been falling behind on my movie watching. The only movie I have had a chance to see in the theater since the summer was ’47 Ronin’. That was a very pretty movie; well shot and choreographed. I would say check it out if those movies are for you.
With ’47 Ronin’ aside there are a ton of movies I need/want to see. So I went to the local video store (yes they do still exist) and rented a few that caught my eye. And by few I rented 8… the other two I watched On Demand. I didn’t watch all ten in one day, just six of them. Two I had watched a few days prior and the other two I watched the next day after the marathon session.
Here are those 10 films and my thoughts:

Art auction galleries have lots of rules and security measures. Best way to get a piece of valuable art? Inside job!

This was born from Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s collaborative production company HitRECord. A fantastic place for creative people to go and help other creative people make creative things. From films to music to art the possibilities are endless.

I recorded NBC’s new show ‘Siberia’ Monday because I’ve been a bit busy and, let’s face it, I record everything and rarely watch TV live anymore. So last night I sat down to watch a few of the shows I had DVR’d. I heard about ‘Siberia’ and had seen a few promos for it. The show had me intrigued so I decided to give it a shot.

After watching the movie I took to Twitter and announced “Really don’t know how to feel about @ManofSteelMovie. I will have to think on this.” I spent the evening thinking about the movie and I have come to this conclusion: I still don’t know what to think. So I am just going to start writing about ‘Man of Steel’ and see if I can figure out how I feel about it.
BTW…. There will be spoilers… You have been warned… (more…)

Because the weather has been crappy so much of this spring, I’ve been stuck inside lots and lots. With all this indoor time on my hands, and having cleaned my house more than I have in the last year, I have watched a lot of movies.
Over the weekend it rained and rained and rained once again, so I flipped on the TV and what happened to be just starting? Mallrats. That one movie spawned a themed movie marathon to pass the day. I am a huge fan of Kevin Smith. I have loved everything he has put out. He inspires me and entertains me. Some even say I look like him.
This was a good day. I enjoyed this day. I will share this day with you.
