Willem Dafoe in Death Note

Willem Dafoe in Death Note

Willem Dafoe will be in Death Note as the voice of Ryuk, Mashable reported on Tuesday. While I’m a big fan of Death Note and I’m excited for the movie, I haven’t been following the news closely. I have to say, this one surprised me. I can’t help but think that his performance will be similar […]

SDCC: Random Recap

Fangirls No Comment

I only spent a few hours at SDCC (I never plan it out in advance!) so I don’t have a lot more to share besides the amazing Mr Robot VR Experience and the Man in the High Castle museum. However, there are a few other moments that I think are worth sharing. Giant Powerpuff Girls I […]

Man in the High Castle at SDCC 2016

Man in the High Castle at SDCC 2016

Although I was a little unsure of Man in the High Castle when it first released on Amazon Prime, I loved it by the end. The show did an amazing job of developing characters and making you sympathize. There are characters who seem, in the beginning, to be pure evil. As you get to know the […]

Mr Robot Virtual Reality Experience at SDCC 2016

One of the coolest exhibits at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 was the Mr Robot Virtual Reality Experience, based on the USA show Mr Robot. The experience included two interactive sets, the Mr Robot store and Elliot’s apartment. Everyone was also given a VR headset to watch the Virtual Reality Experience. Some disclaimers before I get too […]

Love & Friendship

Another new Jane Austen film is in theaters–Love & Friendship. If that doesn’t sound familiar, you shouldn’t be surprised. It’s based on Lady Susan, which wasn’t published until decades after Jane’s death. I have never read Lady Susan, but I knew it was about a scheming and beautiful woman who did as she pleased. That is an accurate […]

Better Late Than Never: Fear the Walking Dead

I was definitely late to The Walking Dead party–I only started watching this past summer. When I heard about Fear the Walking Dead, I was mildly interested. Of course AMC will do everything they can to try to replicate the success of a popular show like TWD. I was unsure if that was possible. SPOILERS.

Cowboy Bebop vs. Firefly

Anime, Sci Fi No Comment

I’m a late-comer to a lot of fandoms. I didn’t play my first “real” video game until I was 14 or 15 (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker). I was resistant to anime until freshmen year of college. I didn’t start watching Doctor Who until 2013. The same is true for both Firefly (which I watched […]

Why I Still Watch Homestar Runner

Internet No Comment

Ah, HomestarRunner.com. Once upon a time, it was the place for entertainment on the internet. (At least if you were cool like me.) Sadly, the once often-updated site is largely abandoned by it’s creators, Mike and Matt Chapman (a.k.a. The Brothers Chaps). But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still watch (or re-watch) these hilarious cartoons. Seriously, […]
