4K TV is bullshit

“We’re always on the lookout for the hot, new thing, and we never take the time to appreciate what we have now.”

Stargate Atlantis “Irresistible”

“In this article (and in the article that will follow it), I plan to educate you on why the writers should have steered clear of another Felger-type writing misstep of ‘Avenger 2.0’-size proportions… and decided not to. Twice. Don’t these guys learn the first time?”

Stargate SG-1 “Avenger 2.0”

“While it isn’t the worst concept for an episode ever, it’s still not winning fan love, twelve years after it aired. Okay, so maybe some fans love it, but this fan cringes over the existence of it.”

Super 8 (2011)

“One of Spielberg’s most famous and cherished movies is E.T., the story of a young boy who befriends an alien who’s just trying to get back home. Well, just imagine what that movie would have been like if E.T. ate people.”

“I’m not sure that’s how evolution works, though it’s disheartening to see that Shyamalan thought so much of his silly ‘plants killing humans’ premise of The Happening that he reuses it here.”

Equilibrium (2002)

“Despite the terrible reviews it got upon release, Equilibrium has become a cult favorite, and for good reason. It boasts high energy combat scenes as well as a much deeper literary meaning.”

In particular, we watch as Katniss begins to believe in the power she could wield, and we wonder if this mockingjay has finally spread her wings.”
