My name is Dan.
I'm kind of a nerd and I live in North Carolina.
This is my blog.
This this where I write about various pop culture things, and sometimes there's some personal stuff thrown in there too. I love movies, comics and photography.
Every now and then I post a picture or two.
Considering the last time we had a live-action Flash series on screen back when he was played by Dawson Leary’s dad, I’m actually very happy with Grant Gustin’s portrayal of Barry Allen on ‘Arrow’. I’d watch a new ‘Flash’ series starring him.
Tom Cruise seems obsessed with making out-there sci-fi flicks and I’m OK with that. I found ‘Oblivion’ to be a nice treat for sci-fi fans, and I’m hoping that’s what ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ turns out to be.
"I’m just a fat guy sitting in the cold." “Why are you sitting in the cold?” “I’m waiting to go to work. I work an overnight security job. I live in Philly, but I take the bus up here and stay for four days each week. I can’t find work in Philly and I’ve got two kids.” “Where do you sleep?” “Starbucks, McDonalds, anywhere I can take a quick nap.”
Director: Gareth Edwards Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche.
Release Date: May 16th, 2014
I was so happy to hear that Gareth Edwards would be directing the newest incarnation of ‘Godzilla’. His film ‘Monsters’ was a great demo reel for him being able to give an interesting new take on the giant monster genre. It’s a film I urge people to check out if this new ‘Godzilla’ film looks appealing. I’m still not sure of North American audiences want an updated ‘Godzilla’ film, or even a ‘Godzilla’ film at all, but this looks impressive. It’s nice to see a Godzilla film on a much larger scale than the 90’s film. The opening sequence in the trailer with troops halo-jumping into a devastated San Francisco and Godzilla emerging from the smoke is such a cool shot. There is also a rumor that there will be other monsters in this film, which I’m down for. ‘Godzilla’ might just end up being a decent summer-blockbuster after all.
Written and directed by the Wachowskis, starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne and Terry Gilliam.
I’m all for an out there sci-fi film, but the Wachowskis take themselves way too seriously on every single level. Lets just start with the fact that Channing Tatum is wearing heavy eyeliner and Mila Kunis’ character is actually called “Jupiter”. Holy-moly this looks overwrought.
We Get It Will Ferrell, ‘Anchorman 2’ Is Coming Out Soon. Please Stop
How long has Will Ferrell been promoting ‘Anchorman 2’ now? 3 months, right? How is that movie not out now? Enough is enough. The ‘Anchorman 2’ promotional blitz has gotten out of hand. ‘Anchorman’ came out almost 10 years ago, is the studio that worried about people not turning out for this sequel that they need such an obnoxious promotional tour for this film. It’s not even funny anymore, it’s bordering on sad. Is Will Ferrell that desperate for another hit since he really hasn’t had one since ‘The Other Guys’ back in 2010.
