Got Brick'd

Finally saw the movie Brick recommended by Dani. I agree with her assessment it was like walking through a 1940's detective novel. I do recommend it but then again I've been deep into crime-dramas over the last two months. Love the posters.

If you like this one then I suggest Fresh starring Sean Nelson and Giancarlo Esposito it is the ultimate kid turn vigilante/detective movie.

Moving to my lack of TV reviews.

Well simply put they're awful. Plus other sites like TV Squad and AOL get the shows up to a month in advance and ruin any hope of posting a fast review. So unless something catches my eye I won't bother. My original hope for this blog was to visit movie sets like Amy but my lazybones and scholastic goals shut that down. So while I'll try to keep this site TV related it may transform.

Doctor Who: Journey's End
Fantastically sad.


  1. I'm sorry, but try as I might, I cannot get into this "new" Dr Who at all...

    Give me some classic Tom Baker any day.

    Perhaps it's because I grew up with Baker as the Doctor, that he's "my" Doctor, so to speak.

  2. From what I gather which ever Doctor you saw first is always the favorite.

    I prefer the ninth doctor he had such a great attitude.

  3. I respectfully disagree, Man. Tom Baker was my first Doctor, as he was for most Americans who discovered Doctor Who on PBS in the 80s. When they switched to the next Doctor, I stopped watching the show because it didn't feel the same.

    When Christopher Eccleston showed up, enough time had passed for me to enjoy it as a remake. I thought I would abandon the show again when I heard that Eccleston was leaving. However, David Tennant has turned out to be my favorite Doctor. So your first Doctor isn't necessarily your favorite. As a matter of fact, now that I know more about the history of the show, I feel that I can go back and enjoy the past Doctors.

    As for TV reviews, I feel ya, Man. It is tough for average bloggers like us to put a new spin on TV coverage. I've found that I don't have enough to say for a post on my own blog; I'd rather just comment on other TV blogs. For my blog, I think I may focus more on old movies and undiscovered gems that I get from NetFlix.

  4. Tom Baker was cool for his time. I forgot that PBS carried Doctor Who. I always knew I saw few episodes back in the 80s but I forgot from where.
