agreed. The first one was awesome by making normal(ish) things scary, this scary thing is already scary, which is the kind of trick that a director with no faith in his subject or himself would use. » 4/01/15 11:12am Today 11:12am

You bring up an interesting point: where are the rest of the Patton Oswalts? I didn't see any getting rounded up, and in fact they've been missing for a minute now. I'm sure it's because the actual PO is busy, but I'm hoping for an in show explanation that requires the reveal of a whole roomful of Oswalts. » 4/01/15 11:03am Today 11:03am

I had to pick Star Wars, because as much as I love Star Trek, as great and positive influence as I think it's had, as beloved as those characters are and as long-lasting as the franchise has been, this contest makes me want to go put Star Wars and Empire into my DVD player right now, because those two movies are the… » 3/30/15 3:10pm Monday 3:10pm

Yeah I'm feeling the same thing. I think the thing was that for any weaknesses the show might have had in the beginning, one thing it did do was introduce a mystery in an episode and then solve it in explosive fashion, as opposed to dragging it out over several episodes like some other shows would have done. Will… » 3/23/15 7:36pm 3/23/15 7:36pm

I have been lamenting the over-CGIig of everything, you get these epic shots but they're so faaaaaaake that there's no sense of danger, you know that it's just a cartoon person outrunning that landslide or whatever. I'm not sure how they did that but it really looked like Tom Cruise hanging off an airplane, and THAT'S… » 3/22/15 2:12pm 3/22/15 2:12pm

The one that always gets me is hacking into a new and theoretically somewhat unfamiliar computer using fewer keystrokes than it would take to type a password even if you typed that password right on the first try. Click click click I'm in! » 3/22/15 11:56am 3/22/15 11:56am

When they said this movie would be based on 1984, obviously what they meant was it's going to be the cinematic equivalent of having a cage of rats on your face. What is in Rob's room 101? This movie. » 3/20/15 9:51am 3/20/15 9:51am

I have lived next to a marine base for 10 years, and I was myself in the USAF for 5 years before that. Believe me the proportion of bullies who join just to shoot people was always low and its lower than it's ever been. You can say whatever you want, make any bizarre and insulting comparisons you want, but it's… » 3/19/15 9:49am 3/19/15 9:49am

The question for me is not how he got back in with that overinflated spacesuit, but how he managed to fit in the capsule with those enormous balls in the first place*. Good lord. » 3/19/15 12:17am 3/19/15 12:17am

Did Barry's runnin actually stop the tsunami? I don't know if that was anything but wishful thinking. He zapped back in time before we could see the effect, I'd like to think that everyone in Central City died horribly 10 seconds after he zapped back in time. » 3/18/15 11:21am 3/18/15 11:21am

For all the people saying that this will come back to haunt us once the robots become self-aware, I say nonsense. Just program the AI to have a dodgeball fetish. This might cause other, even more bizarre problems, as sentient robots seek out dodgeball throwers and even create better and faster robots to throw… » 3/16/15 4:41pm 3/16/15 4:41pm

I imagine this is a pretty accurate reflection of what Marvel's head office will look like the day after the first Spidey-starring trailer for Captain America: Civil War drops.
