I can’t recommend my video Understanding What Smaug is Saying

Yeah, so… I don’t know what I was thinking.  I guess you can watch it and judge for yourself, but it’s two minutes and ten seconds of your life that you can never get back.   Read the rest of this entry

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (movie review)

The trilogy is complete. I bet you still can’t believe they turned The Hobbit into a trilogy – me neither! But here we are, so let’s finish up with The Battle of the Five Armies. Read the rest of this entry

If Lord of the Rings isn't just fantasy to you, then I guess this post is for you

This Christopher Valentine character’s video, "Elves – Learn how to Attract Real Elves to You!" has garnered over 144,000 hits and he seems to be serious about getting Legolas to come hang out in your backyard.

Now I like Orlando Bloom as much as the next guy – what can I say, the dude is pretty. Anyway, Christopher Valentine’s website, Myst of the Oracle (I would have called it "Mystery of the Oracle" because it sounds way cooler), features all sorts of… I dunno, stuff. For Example, it makes mention of Dr. Christian von Lahr conducting the first Michael Jackson interview 48 hours after "crossing-over," which I assume is charlatan speak for dying, so it’s not just "fairy tale creatures are real" with these folks. It’s like a channeling Elvis while riding a dragon sort of thing. I love the list of celebrity endorsements:

  • John Gray, best-selling author of "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus"
  • Gary Zukav, the best-selling author of "Seat of the Soul."
  • Dr. Michael Beckwith, best-selling co-author of the book and video "The Secret"
  • and Larry King.

I thought I was detecting a theme, but then… Larry King. Didn’t see that coming. I bet Dr. von Lahr did, though.

As far as I’m concerned, YouTube is the real magical place, where things like this can grow and thrive right next to .

5 Points on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – a movie review

I finally got around to seeing the latest J. R. R. Tolkien/Peter Jackson jam, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and it did not disappoint – well, not me, at least.  If the movie did pizz you off, I can certainly understand why.  Also:  check out my reviews of The Hobbit:  An Unexpected Journey here (written) and here (video).

Nerd Gift Alert: Hobbit Pez


I saw this The Hobbit movie multi package of pez dispensers at a cvs, but presumably, it’s available at other retail locations as well. This is cool, but not as cool as that Star Trek The Next Generation set I saw last year…  I can’t believe I didn’t post that!

Mixers and Movie Reviews Ep 1 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Prometheus

As advertised, the first episode of Mixers and Movie Reviews is here!  I know The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Prometheus aren’t exactly hot off the presses, but they’re two movies that merit discussion – under the influence of a coconut mojito, that is. Read the rest of this entry

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey movie review

As we’ve already done with Star Wars, we’re going back to Middle Earth for the prequel trilogy to The Lord of the Rings and this time, we’re going to have more fun with The Hobbit. I got started on the trek last Sunday with An Unexpected Journey.

The Hobbit – the offical t-shirt of the movie


So do you need a t-shirt based on a movie you haven’t seen because it’s not even out yet?  According to Target, the answer is, “Fuck and YES!” Also… really?  A Dwarf gets top billing on The Hobbit movie t-shirt over Bilbo… the only fucking hobbit on the t-shirt?  I guess so.
