The Punisher

This is what happens when you stray too far…

It would be too easy for me to spout off how much I hated The Punisher and everyone involved in this steaming pile. To be fair, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (soon to be Rebecca Romijn-Duran, oh yea), is quite good. Granted her role is rather simple and one-dimensional (course, anyone who sees this craptasical film will totally get the irony of that statement). Still, the character of Joan is well performed and you genuinely feel sorry for her lot in life. With the exception of the utterly wasted Roy Schieder, all the other performances have been phoned in. Hell, Kevin Nash showed better acting skills in the squared circle. See, I’m doing what I promised I wouldn’t do. Well, let me get the review out of the way so I can get to the point.

Better the Second Time Around

Ugh, it’s around 1:30 in the afternoon and I’ve only been up about 30 minutes. Anyone who knows me understands that this is a big deal. But, it was RPG time last night (and this morning) and so sleep was not attempted until a few hours ago. Plus, the friggen daylight saving times! Who can I blame for THAT idea… Great when you are a wee Geek wanting to ride bikes longer into the night, but not so much when you are a resting DM trying to stay out of the sun’s rays! As I look back at my previous ramblings I can see that EVERY second Sunday has a poor (and even non-existent) entry. Well, that will probably be the cast from now until eternity… Oh well, at least I acknowledge it. As I sit here and recover from last nights slaying I find myself looking at my movie collection and noticed that I have some films that many folks believe are brainless boring crap! As I looked at them through heavy eyelids I realized that I like these movies more with each new viewing…

What’cha Gonna Do When They Come For You?

There is this great little fan film called Troops made by Kevin Rubio. It’s been available for many years now and I’m sure that the bulk of you have seen it. Well, at least those of you who scour the Internet for every little nugget of Star Wars love you can find. I KNOW you people; we can smell our own you know! Just in case you haven’t seen it, go…now…watch it…come back to my rambling later… What are you still doing here? GO! WATCH THE DAMN THING!

Jersey Girl

GROWING UP ISN’T THAT BAD… I GUESS.

Well crap, I’ve only been at this thing for a couple of months now and I’ve already broken my rule of adding new crap every 48 hours. Give me a break people, your friendly neighborhood Geek was feeling a tad under the weather. While recovering I decided I needed some fresh air. I left my basement, went outside, and headed for the theater. Hey, to a Geek like me the scent of stale popcorn and musty seats IS fresh air. What to see, what to see? Well, I had my choice of Jesus, zombies, a little girl, a CGI dog, and Tom Hanks. Always wanting to support my own on opening weekend I put down my $8.50 and sat down to watch me some Jersey Girl…
