I thought the first Amazing Spider-Man was little more than a tedious, almost frame by frame, retelling of the original Toby Maguire version. Amazing Spider-Man 2 seemed a lot fresher to me so,...

I rented the BD from Redbox yesterday and watched it last night. At first, I was turned off by all the preposterousness but finally realized that this is a comic book film. After I did that and...

Couldn't agree more! Nicholson was wonderful as the brilliant but lonely and socially inept Dr. Lillian DePaul. She nearly broke my heart when told Virginia a little about her unhappy youth as a...

I agree that too much of The Last Ship is preposterously groan-worthy but the realistic sets of interior spaces aboard the fictional NATHAN JAMES and the dialog between crew members, which sounds so...

I thought this week's episode was the best of the season so far. The depiction of Frank and Paul's walk back to HQ with the young soldier who Frank had disarmed was extremely well done. I also...

I agree that the writers could send the show in an ever more preposterous direction if they aren't careful. I just hope they remember that what gives the show its magic is that Arleigh Burke...

I hope you're right, God knows! A second GP on US soil would be a wonderful thing. Who Knows? Maybe it will really happen.

We didn't go to a ballgame while we were there but my son sent me a pic he took from his employer's box behind the Yankee dugout a couple of weeks ago. He had taken vendor's the company buys from to...

Seems like the show has already been renewed for a second season. I think I'm glad but that will depend upon whether the writers can find a way to keep us aboard the NATHAN HALE.

I have liked this season's Hell on Wheels a lot too. The Territorial Governor and his slimy henchmen are deliciously hatable. I loved it when Cullen humiliated the two that were trying to...

I worry about that too. When the gang comes back home, they will of course leave the NATHAN JAMES and whenever there is no NATHAN JAMES, The Last Ship loses its magic, it seems to me.

I too enjoyed this week's episode. In fact The Knick is on the way to becoming my favorite program of the summer. Clive Owen has been wonderful as the deliciously ambiguous, Dr. Thackery, a guy who...

Our little Eva is getting interesting. I think her relationship with Linder is almost as interesting as Sonya and Marco's (well, maybe not quite). :)
