Silent Hill: Revelation

As with any movie attempting to bring a video game to life, I went into Silent Hill: Revelation with an open mind.  As a fan of the Silent Hill series, I sat down to watch it with no expectations of a blockbuster.  Let’s be honest, you don’t watch a Resident Evil or Silent Hill film thinking you’ll get a piece of cinematic genius.  I just wanted what I always hope to get from these types of movies – a decent representation of reference from the source material.  All in all, I would say that Revelations did a fair job.

Before the movie even premiered, I was personally excited just based on the casting.  I felt that Adelaine Clemens was a good choice for Heather, and it was proven by the end of the movie...

Wreck It Ralph

I usually do not review movies for the site but really felt the urge to after seeing this one. Occasionally Disney will release a movie that will reach me on a personal level.  For example, I watched The Emperor’s New Groove the day before my 18th birthday and that was the time frame of the movie, so it meant more to see it. And now I have Wreck it Ralph.

My life has been an up and down of turmoil and happy for a while now. On opening night, I had my kids and we were so excited to finally see this movie.  Fun fun. Then, the opening scene played out. We first see Ralph, as he is worried where his life is, as he is approaching 30, alone and hating his home...

Repo! The Genetic Opera

In the year 2056 – the not so distant future – an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men.

What’s Taters, Precious?

Being a SciFi Foodie
by Jim Smith

A year ago, I dreamed up a great recipe … Hobbit Stew.  It was the product of a random conversation leading up to an annual cookout/camping event I go to every year, and a recent watching of the Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-Ray.  One things Hobbits like to do is eat, and if you actually read the trilogy instead of watching it, you would be impressed by some of the vivid detail JRR Tolkien goes into when talking about food.  I guess sir Tolkien was a bit of a foodie himself.

So, the process went sort of like this: I went to my handy-dandy one volume edition of the Lord of the Rings and re-read food descriptions, particularly those cooked and consumed by Hobbits...
