Years ago, there was a particular announcement made for the director of a new Batman series and, as familiar as I was with his work, I was extremely optimistic for that outcome.

Because similar feelings occurred when this happened: Drama and … Continue reading Days of Future Past, is the X-Men franchise’s glory days behind it? #QuickReview #Nonspoiler

Though we are familiar with them (Spice Girls, Nsync, … Continue reading BABYMETAL, J-Pop meets Metal….uummm, it is really, REALLY good

One of the biggest problems plaguing the first world is dead cellphone batteries. Nothing is worse than being out for a night on the town and seeing that low battery warning. Now you’ve gotta hunt down an outlet, and that’s assuming you even have your charger with you. Otherwise you’re stuck with a useless phone and nobody wants that.
