66th Primetime Emmys: Water Cooler Edition – Sofia Vergara Rotating on a Pedestal

Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 1

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on a Monday and a month earlier this year to accommodate both the VMAs and NFL season.  But it’s okay, you’ve seen this show before.  No, really.  Seth Meyers gave a fantastic monologue but beyond that it was pretty much a lot of the same as last year and the year before.  I was so bored that I couldn’t even muster up annoyance at the fact that the President of TV (as Stephen Colbert called him) literally put Sofia Vergara onto a rotating pedestal so that people would have something to look at while he spoke.   Continue reading…

Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug

Peter Jackson is an interesting film maker. A background in indie films, specifically indie horror films, he was raised to the top of the A-List when he successfully pulled off adapting J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy to the big screen. Those movies are not perfect by any stretch but the books were so rich and full of detail that the theatrical releases actually felt like they were lacking despite being a combined length of over 9 hours.

Now we’re on the second part of his adaptation of The Hobbit, the book that preceded the epic trilogy that was The Lord of the Rings. That book however is actually pretty short and while it has enough detail to serve the story’s purpose it has nowhere near the depth or scope that the later trilogy does.

Herein lies one of the problems with The Desolation of Smaug: You can’t turn a 300 page book into 9 hours of movie without padding the story, and Jackson has padded the story so much, and messed up the pacing so much, that while I don’t think it’s a bad film I also don’t think it’s a great one.

Something For The Weekend… Sherlock, Series 1 and 2

Posted by Matthew on November 01, 2013
Recommends / Comments Off on Something For The Weekend… Sherlock, Series 1 and 2

Sherlock

Whether or not you’ve seen it already a copy of Sherlock should be in your library. It’s a wonderfully written series updating the adventures of Sherlock Holmes to the modern day. There have been two series of three episodes each so far and since there’s a third in production slated to premiere in the new year now is the perfect time to catch up or rewatch.

Below you’ll find links to purchase Sherlock series one and two from iTunes and Amazon. You may need to turn off your ad block to see them as they are affiliate links, we get a tiny cut if you actually buy them. This helps us keep the lights on around here which is a good thing as we are afraid of the dark.

Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
