Film

Oh this should be fun.  As a child of the 80s (I was born in 1980 for anybody that cares), there’s something about seeing a movie from the 80s on TV that just makes me smile.  Whether it’s the special effects, the acting, or seeing actors that are so well-known today when they were just […]

Best Fictional Weapons

Cartoons, Comics, Film, Technology, Video Games

First of all, a quick disclaimer: I am not glamorizing nor glorifying weapons, violence, or related topics.

Great Star Wars Parodies and Spoofs

Everybody with an ounce of nerd in them loves Star Wars (the original trilogy, not that turd Lucas dropped with the Prequels).  They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery (or copyright infringement), so with a recent run of Star Wars movies on TV I go to thinking about some of the best […]
