Thor Ragnarok is not the end but a new beginning

by Optimal Optimus on November 6, 2017

I caught Thor Ragnarok twice this weekend and I must say it was quite good. I basically made as much money as all of its previous movies in the Thor franchise it its opening weekend. Why? Because it marks a new beginning for Thor and the kinds of stories and story telling that Marvel Studios […]

Pride Prejuidice and Zombies – Ooo Zombies

February 7, 2016

  I caught Pride Prejudice an Zombies this weekend and I must say it was entertaining. I am always a bit a of  an easy mark for a Zombie flick so there is that caveat.     Overall though the action was decent. Pacing and story telling were a little off. I think this movie […]

Ok so here’s my take on Pathfinder vs 4th Ed. For the record I like 4th Ed, I know I know I am in the minority but I have my reasons. I will list them here… Pathfinder Detailed Rules Balance Feat/Skill Based Very Open Lots of Customization Doesn’t Reinforce Role Playing DnD 4th Ed Less […]

I caught the latest installment of the Bond franchise earlier this month and I must say it wasn’t bad. I liked it better than Quantum of Solace and a little less than Casino Royale (2006). Liked Daniel Craig is an excellent Bond. Judy Dench is a phenomanl actor and plays M brilliantly Bardem makes for […]
