The Mystery of FlashForward

| 1 Comment | 0 TrackBacks
According to ABC, Thumbnail image for FlashForward.jpgFlashforward is supposed to be the second coming of Lost. While J.J. Abrams has no hand in it, it will never escape the specter of Lost's success and the pressure of the hype machine. It's three episodes in, I'm feeling this show is much less Lost, and much more Heroes...

Summer Movie Blitz!

Obviously, I've been on hiatus. Yes, I missed a lot of juicy potential posts, many of which I started but never quite got finished.

So here in one fell swoop are a bunch of not-as-quick-as-I-would-have-liked-them reviews!

After the jump: Terminator Salvation, Harry Potter 6, Transformers 2, GI Joe, District 9, Inglourious Basterds.

Yes that is a big statement. And yes, I stand by it.

I am not a Trekkie. (Or a Trekker. To-may-toe, to-mah-toe.)

I never watched the original series, though as a self-respecting nerd (wait, what?), I vaguely knew the characters and the archetypes. I've seen a little TNG, but not much and so this movie only piqued a vague interest.

That is, until opening weekend, when it opened with an insane 96% on Rotten Tomatoes--infact, I saw it at 94% for a while before it climbed *up* to 96%, with 228 reviews counted.

Then I became rabid. I had to see this movie. So, Sunday night, instead of going to see ASSSSCAT, we went to see Star Trek.

I just found out Amy Poehler was at ASSSSCAT (oh Twitter. -_-), but I can honestly say I'm totally okay that I missed Poehler and am so glad I didn't have to wait a couple more days to see Star Trek.

This Movie Is That Good.

As Twitter has wreaked havoc on my ability to blog and I had a million thoughts running through my head during the movie, I will now attempt to pin down some of them, in faux-tweet form... (spoilers abound after the jump)
