Captain America: Civil War (2016)



I could say so much. If you want more, this review from Geek & Sundry covers it gloriously.

The Big Bang Theory


This bugs me. I love all the things the boys love.* Doctor Who. Firefly. Buffy. Star Wars. Star Trek. Marvel. DC. Comics. Gaming. Etc. etc. Yet all the female characters consistently dismiss them. For a show celebrating things nerdy and geeky you'd think they'd occasionally let girls like it too.

*As do all of my friends.

Earth Day 2016


The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand.


The Simpsons: Tapped Out - Wild West

Ooh, this new event is goood! Dirt roads!

Edit: Also, I love the way they write these stories in.

Falling Skies, episode 2.4


I've never been happier to be an adult.

Ant-Man (2015)


This is so odd. Good, but odd.

It's actually exactly like a cross between a Disney movie and a superhero movie.

Reflections, A Whirlwind Tour of Australia


This book should be compulsory reading for anyone writing fantasy. For good reasons.

Imagination doesn't just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving them or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)


I was disappointed to read, the other day, that Sally Field didn't like her character in this. I love these films. And yes, she is a supporting character. All films, especially character films like Spidey or Deadpool, require them. But she is an intelligent supporting character, and those are important.
