War of the Worlds – Goliaths

One of the things I like about Netflix is finding new anime to watch. “War of Worlds Goliath” is a throw back to what would happen after the well known Sci-fi book event “War of the Worlds” by H.G. Wells (published in 1898) had taken place. These books inspired T.V., radio, hollywood and now anime. This was an original […]

Oh my Papermate mechancial pencils RoCk!

I draw with mechanical pencils and over the past few years ended up using BIc’s .5 2H disposables, as it was what I saw at Staples. Even though with every minute of detailed work SNAP, a lead has broken it was tortured OI accepted from my love of drawing. Accepting the problem I would pound on its […]

Guardians of the Galaxy – The must see movie of SUMMER 2014!

What a great RIDE! This movie was a tribute to how far technology has come pulling of a huge feat in bringing a series of human actors together with C.G.I characters(Groot and Rocket) in the fun/funniest way I have seen yet. Then to top it all off they somehow perfectly blended in tunes from the 60 or 70’s […]

The Amazing Spiderman 3 is out on DVD

Spiderman, The Flintstones and Hercules were amine back when I was a kid and for this reason alone I was excited to see how Marvel would introduce the villains of Electro and Rhino as they try to grow this rebooted franchise(maybe in a sinister six direction)…unfortunately I soon found myself very disappointed. I use to […]

The Wolverine (2013)

As usually I will not got into the plot but will mention they really tried to direct this movie to the North American and Japanese. I had read the comics around the storyline and I think it affected my opinion on the movie. While watching the movie I found I expected more and ended up […]

Iron Man 3 review

The world seemed to love this movie, yet few I know said they liked it and after seeing the movie I understand why. The movie left me with a weak impression of Tony Stark as they focused on his emotional state after the Avengers movie then at best the Ironman armors were lame on top […]

Man of Steel – (Superman 2013) review

As kids, me and my friend Chris would spend hours creating Superman “S”’s out of paper and taping them onto our t-shirts. Then awaiting my mother’s distraction, we would take towels from the closet and run off(errr… fly off) using the towels as capes. We were inspired to do such things by the Superman movies […]

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012)

Finally I saw Ghost Rider II. After the first one I was really concerned how badly they could run this series into the ground. Once again they did a crap job. I am thinking Nicolas cage is poison to the movies and I really wonder about the directors. The positives were the special effects and […]
