WHAT DID I JUST WATCH?!?! Did this movie just– OH MY GOD!
That’s a summary of what went through my mind during much of Kingsman: The Secret Service, and I mean that in a very good way, because holy shit, this movie was fucking insane and I loved every single minute of it. SEE IT! [Read more…]
Are you on Goodreads? Do you like things that have been autographed? Have you ever wanted to drive a Lamborghini??? Then enter to win an autographed copy of Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure!
The winner will be drawn* on February 27th!
(Oh, and the Lamborghini thing? It’s got nothing at all to do with this contest. I was just curious and didn’t know how to find out otherwise.)

Season 2, Episode 18:
“A Clockwork Nebari”
***1/2 out of *****
“It’s going to be more real THAN real. It’s going to be super-3D Smell-O-Vision in Sensurround!”

Snohomish High School, a.k.a. the school they used when filming Fire Walk With Me). You may also know that I like improv comedy.

Season 2, Episode 17:
“The Ugly Truth”
**** out of *****
“We should just execute all of you. Then we could be sure the guilty party was punished.”
It’s been almost half a year since the last post in my Farscape Re-watch series, and part of the reason for that is that writing up this particular episode in a way that did it justice was a daunting task.
