This seemed like a good idea.
But really it’s crap.
Today is an incredible day for all of us at Uberfriendship. One of the founding Uberfriends is entering his fourth decade on the planet. Shaggy Shan, a king amongst nerds, is having a birthday! I’m not sure where you’re reading this, but in Canada it’s typical for the birthday boy to receive presents. I’ve never been one to follow expectations though, so I’m going to talk about some of the gifts that Shaggy has given me over the years. Continue reading
I’ve spent the better part of two days trying to come up with something to Grumble about this week, and I’m stumped. There’s no big news or movie to grumble about, and I’m six months behind on my comics so that’s no good either. I can say that I find the Marvel Axis crossover comics dumb, but fun. Maybe when I finish the storyline I’ll go into more detail, but that’s all I’ve got right now. The only thing I can think of is to talk about some movies I’ve seen on Netflix and DVD recently and let you know what I thought. Continue reading
No specific writing agenda today, so I’m just going to ramble until I hit my quota. Ready?
I saw Mad Max: Fury Road AGAIN on the weekend. Man, that movie is so much fun. I’m probably going to see it at least one more time in theatres. I’ll probably get it on Blu-Ray too, but I just can’t imagine it having the same impact on the small screen. When we left the theatre this last time, one of my buddies who I saw it with asked if I noticed anything that I missed the first time. What came to mind was actually kind of a small detail. There’s a part where a truck that’s covered in amps, drums, and a guitar crashes and flies to pieces. Amongst the debris are a bunch of other instruments – a tuba, a french horn, stuff like that. Just a nice, weird touch that makes me love the movie even more. Continue reading
Once again, I’m a little late with this post. Normally, I post on Tuesday, but I saw Avengers 2 again yesterday and as much as I’d like to write more about that delightful film I’m sure you’d rather read something new. Luckily, I saw something today that’s much newer. Mad Max: Fury Road!
Let’s start with the negative: It felt to me a touch, a smidge, a wee bit long.
The positive: Everything else. Continue reading
It’s a weird sensation knowing that the billion dollar earning Avengers 2 isn’t just the biggest movie of the summer. It’s also just the first of many superhero movies coming in the next few months. I still remember the days when a single Batman movie was worth getting excited about. Hell, I remember when a Blade movie was something to get excited about. Now, if anything, some people are getting kind of ho-hum about these huge blockbusters. I’m not in that group, and I don’t think I will be if Marvel manages to maintain this level of quality.
