Harry Potter and Severus Snape was the Star of the Series

I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2 at a Thursday Midnight showing, and that is the way to do it. The place was packed with fans, many of them in costume. Most depressing was the fact that most of the crowd was at least 20 years younger than me. This is their […]

Because I hate myself

It’s true. I’m going to see Transformers 3 this weekend. If I want to be able to talk intelligently about the TF movies, I gotta see the latest installment from his royal Bayness. I’ll be camped out in front of the cineplex, subsisting on Goobers and Ju-Ju-Bees. Ju-Ju-Bees have the essential vitamins and nutrients humans […]

Riddles in the dark

For better or worse, the two “Hobbit” films are finally chugging along. Andy Serkis has been officially signed to reprise his role as Gollum in the stretched-out  version of the classic book.  While not perfect, I did enjoy many performances in the Jackson “Lord of the Rings” films, and Serkis’ was one of them. The […]
