The Top Ten Zombie Movies

BT-Top-10-May-2012With the impending release of “World War Z”, I thought the timing was perfect to do a top ten of one of my favorite types of horror movies, the Zombie Movie!

Believe it or not, Zombie movies are actually a pretty diverse sub-genre. They range from straight up horror movies and gorefests to low-budget campy films to outright comedies. Hell, earlier this year there was even a Zombie rom com (“Warm Bodies”)!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

hobbit_an_unexpected_journey_ver4

Peter Jackson returns to Middle Earth with a worthy prequel to his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”.

“The Hobbit” is much lighter in tone, and stuffed with action sequences, but remains a shining example of how modern fantasy films should be crafted.

It has an incredible pedigree to live up to, but I think “The Hobbit” adds to the franchise proudly.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2012: This is why Comic-Con is World Renown

This is why people camp out overnight.

Hall H today is why television networks cover the convention.

Why people travel from all over the world. Guam. Brazil. Canada. England. Heard them all this week. All over.

This is why Comic-Con is worth the big bucks, the headaches, the sleep deprivation, the hunger pains, the bursting bladder, the sore back, the blisters on your feet.

This is WHY.

Because you just do NOT GET stuff like this anywhere else.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2012: That’s the way the cookie crumbles

Greetings from the line for Hall H, on Saturday at 5:30 am (well, when I began this post at least). I got up at 4, was here by 10 after 5 or so…

And I have never been further back in line for an event. I cannot even SEE Hall H right now. The Lawn is completely full of campers, the sidewalk across the street was full of campers, the line loops around the grass and back by the bay. I got up at 4 am, and now wonder if I’ll even get in.

I spent my time last night updating all the photos, and never got around to a summary post, so I figured since I have TIME (LOL), I might as well write up my adventures from yesterday. Read on!

The Adventures of Tintin

“The Adventures of Tintin” is the story of an intrepid reporter and his scrappy dog who get swept up into a global adventure after purchasing a replica wooden ship from a street vendor. Based on the series of comics by Belgian artist Hergé, “Tintin” is the first animated feature to be directed by Steven Spielberg, and his first full length forray into the world of motion capture technology.

His influence is unmistakable, as Tintin takes off on an Indiana Jones-esque adventure in search of treasure. There are wild action sequences, interspersed with family friendly comedy, and an overarching spirit of adventure.

There were a few missing elements for me which keep me from calling it great, but there’s no doubt that anyone who was looking forward to it will be pleased, and it’s well worth your box office dollar this holiday season.
