Marvel vs DC

Aug 30, 2018 ~ 3 min read ~ randomnonsensecomicsreviews

I’m not going to pretend to be impartial here. Growing up I was always a Marvel fan. I used to joke that DC stood for Dumb Comics… Except for Batman, of course. Everybody loves Batman.


Black Panther: Good Movie or Political Statement?

Feb 17, 2018 ~ 3 min read ~ reviews

Turns out, it’s both. Black Panther is a Shakespearian tale, well told.


Star Wars: Return of Fan Entitlement

Dec 22, 2017 ~ 6 min read ~ reviews

A lot has been (and certainly will be) said about The Last Jedi. I’m not going to really get into it that much. But I have had a few thoughts about it that I thought I’d write down.

Artemis is the second published novel from Andy Weir. I absolutely loved his first book The Martian. Did his sophomore effort live up to his premier novel?


Thor: Ragnarok: A Joke Too Far?

Nov 14, 2017 ~ 2 min read ~ reviews

So there’s been some clamor that Thor: Ragnarok may be too funny. This sounds a lot like being too rich, too pretty, or having too much fun. But let’s spend a second to think about it. Did it stray too far into the comedy realm?


Blade Runner 2049 & The Return of Saturation

Nov 13, 2017 ~ 2 min read ~ reviews

For too long have we had to endure the desaturated grey/blue/brown color palette! Why every movie seems to default to that dingy look is beyond me.


Boo-oom, A Postmortem

Primarily for posterity, here are some thoughts about my game Boo-oom!


Tales of Daring

Aug 12, 2017 ~ 2 min read ~ reviews

Say what you will about a cartoon whose protagonist is a 0.00000000001 percenter… It’s still a lot of fun.


The Strangeness of Dr Strange

May 13, 2017 ~ 2 min read ~ reviews

At the beginning of the movie Strange is fundamentally a selfish character. At the end, he’s still fundamentally a selfish character. He has learned a lot technically; instead of being a master surgeon he’s a master sorcerer. But he’s not grown as a person. At all.


Sequels and Great Expectations

May 11, 2017 ~ 2 min read ~ reviews

I’ve read many reviews claiming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 ‘isn’t as good’ as the first one. I don’t think that’s objectively true. Yes, they (or you) may not have liked it as much as the first movie. But that doesn’t mean it’s not as good.
