Terminator Genisys Review

August 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

So I finally have seen the new Terminator movie with the asinine spelling of the word Genesis which I will not dignify for the rest of this review. Anyway, this was not bad for an action movie of the “turn your brain off” variety, but it was more on the level of T3 than the first two movies. Well, maybe better than T3 by a smidge or so but [...]

Killer Klowns from Outer Space Review

May 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is my wife’s favorite movie, so perhaps I should let her review it. Alright, never mind, she says that’s my job, but I will try to write this in her spirit, like one of those authors “writing in the style of…” whoever. The basic story here is all in the title, a group of circus clowns from outer space land in a sleepy little [...]

World War Z Review

November 18, 2013 // 9 Comments

Brad Pitt stars as Gerry Lane, a former United Nations investigator, and leader of several small tactical forces, who is now retired from that line of work and attempting to enjoy a quiet life with his growing family when, you guessed it, the mother-trucking zombie apocalypse happens, again. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from watching [...]

R.I.P.D Review

November 10, 2013 // 2 Comments

When I was a child, I was a huge fan of the original Men in Black, so much so that when my dad was shopping for a new (new to us anyway) car the summer of my 12th birthday I talked him into getting the exact same 1980’s Ford LTD that was used in that movie. Call it effective marketing or just good timing but I found the combination of Will Smith [...]

Looper Review

May 1, 2013 // 3 Comments

Along with being a pretty enjoyable Sci-Fi suspense picture, I have the weird duty to report that 2012’s ‘Looper’ may be the overall best movie about mass suicide and attempted child murder that I’ve ever seen. Not that I have seen that many films like this mind you, nor do I particularly hope the genre catches on; but for what it is, [...]

Stargate Atlantis – Season Two Review

March 7, 2013 // 0 Comments

It took SG-1 six years, really, before any significant changes were made to the cast when Michael Shanks left the show at the end of season five and was replaced by the Jonas Quinn character. Atlantis started making changes in the second season, and honestly they’d make a change every season thereafter. In a lot of ways, I think it kind of hurt [...]

Stargate Atlantis Season One Review

March 5, 2013 // 0 Comments

Having reviewed all ten seasons of SG-1 and the two SG-1 movies, and taken a break from the franchise, Stargate returns to the Quick Daily Review as we begin to go through the rest of the franchise beginning with the first season of the first spin-off, Atlantis. The “Lost City” was first referenced in the season finale of SG-1’s sixth [...]

Tin Man Review

March 4, 2013 // 0 Comments

Tin Man is the epic miniseries from the SyFy Channel that took Oz to a new level; it’s a modernized retelling of the story and science fiction intended for teens and adults. When this originally aired on SyFy it was a three night event that was six hours long (and that’s including commercial breaks). There are no commercials on this Blu-ray [...]

Contact Review

February 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

Jodie Foster stars as Ellie Arroway, a scientist who has dedicated her entire life to making ‘contact’ with intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. Ellie’s work finally pays off, when she hears a radio message being broadcast from the distant star, Vega. Together with her team, she unlocks the broadcast, Hitler’s speech from the [...]
