Guardians of the Galaxy

This movie is pretty awesome.  It’s got a little bit of everything: action, romance, visual effects, more action, more visual effects, and lots of humour.  If you like comic book movies, definitely go see this one!

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds

The leader of the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World cult has come out with a new comic book.  Seconds is about a young woman who’s growing up but still making mistakes.  However, she discovers mysterious magic mushrooms that let her fix her screwups and rewrite the past.  Unfortunately, she does not heed a warning that she should only take one mushroom.  This book is about food (second helpings) and about life (second chances).

San Diego Con Announcements

As I am sure you are all aware, this past weekend was San Diego Comic Con 2014. To all the people who were lucky enough to attend, I’d like to say on behalf of the rest of us “Screw you guys.” This sentiment definitely includes the Co-Uberfriend in Chief. Unless he brings me something back. In which case, “Screw you guys except for the Co-Uberfriend in Chief who is a hero to us all.” Continue reading

The new Sailor Moon

So a bunch of Sailor Moon fans (200+) decided to re-animate an episode of the old North American dub of Sailor Moon.  Moon Animate, Make-Up! is my favorite version of Sailor Moon by far.  You can check it out on Youtube below:

A Couple of Movie Reviews

This week I think I’m going to do some capsule reviews of a few movies that I’ve seen recently.

Boyhood

This is definitely not a movie for everyone. If you just go to movies for escapism, or a rollicking good time, you will not enjoy this one. But, if you are interested in a beautiful story of growing up that isn’t sugar coated or especially profound, you should check this out. Most coming of age stories tend to focus on one event as the incident that changes someone from a child to an adult. This is more realistic in that it tracks one boy for twelve years. And, here’s the kicker, it actually took 12 years to film. Continue reading

The evils of auto dialers

One of the “problems” that telemarketers face is that they spent a lot of time waiting for their potential victims to pick up the phone.  Thanks to technology, they have a solution to this problem: the autodialer (or predictive dialer).  The system will automatically dial many numbers at once.  When the person on the other end picks up, they are connected to a telemarketer.  If all of the telemarketers are busy, then the person being called will be put on hold.

Thorry About That

Today, Marvel Comics made a pretty big announcement about the future of one of their main characters on The View of all places. The internet was full of guesses as to what the announcement would be since that show is not the place you would typically go to for breaking comic book news. No one could have guessed, though, that they were going to announce that Thor will be becoming a woman.

Pre-heating is a scam

For many foods, there is no need to wait for the oven to be heated to a certain temperature before putting the food in.  Especially when it comes to frozen food.

Graham’s Crisis

It’s come to my attention that there aren’t enough hours in the day. I’m a pop culture junkie in a very jack of all trades kind of way, and for the first time I’m starting to feel like I’m the master of none. I love comics, sci-fi, movies, TV shows, video games, and hockey. It used to be that I was up to date on all of those topics and could discuss any of them with vigour and passion. Now, with real life intruding, I’m lucky if I’m two years behind on any one of those. Continue reading

Queen Beryl versus Sailor Moon

queen_beryl_vs_sailor_moon_by_crash_the_photos-d6ma4spSo let’s break it down.

Queen Beryl is a consummate professional who has worked hard to become successful in her field.  You never seen her go shopping or slack off from studying.  In fact, you never see her have any recreational life at all.  Sailor Moon on the other hand is a whiny little girl who is successful simply due to extrinsic factors.  Her victories come not from years of honing her craft but from magical jewelry.

Queen Beryl has broken the glass ceiling.  She is a leader and has people working for her.  Sailor Moon can’t even break wind.
