Thor-oughly Entertaining

Tue, 11/12/2013 - 13:49
Living-doll Natalie Portman plays an astrophysicist in the newly released movie Thor: The Dark World. In a movie about a Norse God battling an evil that predates the universe, where a woman is teleported to another world then infected with a supreme energy force, is the most unbelievable part that Natalie Portman is an astrophysicist? While examining this very important question, I started to think about other actors and actresses who have portrayed scientists on the big screen and how believable each of these performances was. Denise Richards plays nuclear Continue Reading

Frightfully Good Programming: How To Target Horror Moviegoers

Tue, 11/05/2013 - 15:31
While Linus anxiously awaits the arrival of the Great Pumpkin and Jessie tries to find a way to save her friends from Mr. Pricklepants, children unite in their appreciation of quality Halloween fare.  Adults also appreciate the antics of their favorite animated characters during the season of ghouls and goblins, but All Hallows’ Eve also celebrates the antithesis of these colorful characters, focusing on the darker shades of red and black. I refer to the confluence of horror films that tend to hit the theaters and airwaves every year about Continue Reading

Before Wiki Leaked

Thu, 10/31/2013 - 12:00
Why are conspiracies rarely good? With the exception of Operation Valkyrie, the failed conspiracy to kill Hitler, conspiracies are mostly, in the wise words of Will Smith, guys who “were up to no good.” Why don’t people conspire to pick up trash along the highway or help underprivileged children? Instead it’s always Cold War this, and government cover up that. One good thing to come from all this intrigue is the secret agent man. He’s smart, handsome, and a little bit dangerous—unless you happen to be his girlfriend or female Continue Reading

2013 World Series

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 12:00
To be a baseball fan requires a certain amount of patience. It has one of the longest seasons in professional sports, asking fans to tune in for (or record on their TiVo!) 162 games from April to October – and that is just the regular season. But ask anyone, the MLB’s playoffs provide as much, if not more drama than anything else on your TiVo – where the fate of an entire season can hinge on a single pitch. And here we are, with November on the horizon, and the Continue Reading
