We Bid A Fond Farewell To Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who

We Bid A Fond Farewell To Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who
A lot of folks had some serious criticism for Peter Capaldi’s interpretation of the Time Lord. Even though his three seasons as The Doctor weren’t my favorite, I have to say I think he’s my favorite portrayal of The Doctor. There were some great moments, but I don’t think the writing measured up to David […]

This Year’s Christmas Marathon

This Year’s Christmas Marathon
The holiday tradition in the Kelley household is the cook our lunch and dinner meals together, and watch a marathon of holiday-themed movies and tv shows. We’re not into the regular crap like It’s A Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. Our tastes usually tends to swing toward the funny and unconventional. My entire playlist was […]

Civil War Is Upon Us In The 5th And Final Season of Vikings

Civil War Is Upon Us In The 5th And Final Season of Vikings
Don’t hate me, but I think I’ve enjoyed Vikings more than I have Game of Thrones. The more contained story and the smaller cast of main characters have made it a lot easier to follow with all the action and violence you’d expect from a warrior period piece. You’d think that a show that loses its main protagonist […]

Teachers Is One Of My Favorite Television Guilty Pleasures

Teachers Is One Of My Favorite Television Guilty Pleasures
You don’t think of quality television shows when you think of TV Land. But there are a few gems that seem shine through. Teachers is one of those shows you get when the cast, writing and tone are just right. The misadventures of 6-grade school teachers trying to entertain each other through the mundane day is […]

The New $5G iMac Pro Is Something My Inner Geek Needs To Own Someday

The New $5G iMac Pro Is Something My Inner Geek Needs To Own Someday
I’ve been a Mac since I was in college back in the early 90’s. My first Mac was a SE/30 which has a whopping 1MB of RAM (expandable to a dizzying 128MB) and no had no hard drive. The operating system (muthaf$%@$% System 6.0!!!) on an internal ROM. For the day, it was AWESOME. Interestingly enough, […]

Blade Runner 2049 Is An Unexpected Modern Masterpiece of Filmmaking

Blade Runner 2049 Is An Unexpected Modern Masterpiece of Filmmaking
I wanted to go see Blade Runner 2049 on the opening weekend. But a lot of other stuff started getting in the way. After months or procrastination, I finally went into see it. And with less than a month to go, this became my movie of the year. Not only did this movie get everything right, […]

The First Details of X-Men: Dark Phoenix Are Coming

The First Details of X-Men: Dark Phoenix Are Coming
Well.. it’s that time again. Fox is working on their seventh (seventh?) X-Men film. This time we’re jumping forward to the 90’s and Jean Grey is getting her spotlight as The Phoenix. Being burned more time than not, I don’t know how I feel about X-Men: Dark Phoenix. That being said, of course, I’m going to […]
