Man of Steel Trailer is here!

Posted in Uncategorized on 12/11/2012 by Papa Nerd

And it is bad ass.  Don’t take my word for it.  Check it out for yourself:

I do believe that Superman fanboys such as myself will finally get to see the Superman movie we have been waiting to see for a long time.  It looks like there is more action in this trailer than in the entire Superman Returns movie, and Henry Cavill looks to be this generation’s definitive Superman.  That’s a lot to assume, based on a trailer, but that is what I see in it.

My only concern is Zack Snyder’s direction.  Most of his movies are all visuals, no substance, so we’ll see.

What do you think?

Yet Another Review of The Dark Knight Rises

Posted in Comics, Movies, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/30/2012 by Papa Nerd

I know, I’m a little behind.

Actually, a LOT behind.  I had a goal of posting a new blog every day.  That all flew out the window when I had to start working until 2:30 or 3:00 in the A.M. for your friendly neighborhood T.G.I. Cheddarbee’s, then getting up at 5:30 or 6 A.M. with my evil genius son.  Needless to say, I am tired virtually all of the time.  No energy to sit at a computer and write.  No energy to do much of anything except try to nap and make sure my son doesn’t rip his diaper off and pee on the floor.

He has done it, by the way.

But, last Saturday, I was able to drag my ass to my local IMAX and check out The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy.

Hit the jump to read my spoiler-filled review.  If you haven’t seen it and don’t want any info, read something else.  Or, do me a favor and click on an ad and line my wallet.

Oh, so very true…

Rants from the Kitchen

If only you knew what was involved in bringing your food to the table.

That’s why I’m here.  To educate the shit out of you.  You would never go out to eat again if you knew the bullshit behind the scenes.  So, I’m going to expose some of the secrets that my bosses don’t want you to know.

Why am I doing this? Because fuck ’em, that’s why.

Did you know…

… most of the time, restaurant workers are not allowed to call in sick.  That’s right.  We end up coughing, sneezing, and sometimes, vomiting, on your food.

… whenever you find a hair in your food, it belongs to your server, although the fuckers will tell you otherwise.  In the kitchen, we are required to wear hair restraints.  Your server is not.

… never get a lemon wedge with your water or tea.  Your nasty-ass server doesn’t use tongs…

Trailer for Amazing Spider-Man Released, Universal Nerdgasm Follows

Posted in Movies, Uncategorized with tags , , , on 02/07/2012 by Papa Nerd

So, yesterday, we got an extended Avengers trailer, and nerds all over creamed their pants.  Literally.  You should read some of the comments over at ComicBookMovie.com.  More than a little disturbing.

Anyway, at midnight today, Sony released a trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, the reboot of the franchise starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.  Again, massive nerdgasm.  This movie is darker than the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films.  While those films captured the tone and spirit of the earlier comics, this one is more like the darker and grittier Ultimate Spider-Man series.  I personally like how this film looks, and it seems the actors are perfect for their roles.

Here is the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man:

The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and is directed by Marc Webb.  It opens July 3rd, 2012.

I’ve really got to start saving some money to go see all of these movies coming out this summer.
