Another long layoff, but like many a comic book character, I refuse to stay dead. So the podcast is back for another round! Just a short show for the return: three movies, one TV show and out. Enjoy!

The site lives! Now with video! Other exclamatory sentences!

Hey all…

First up, apologies for the lack of updates over the past months. To quote the last line of a great film, “Time just gets away from us.” But hey, Oscar season is upon us! Expect further updates in the near future. Specifically, my top 10 films of 2013, and my picks for Oscar night.

In the meantime though, here’s a little something I thought people might be interested in. If you’ve seen and loved Her, as I did, you probably loved the soundtrack. One of the best songs therein is “The Moon Song” by Karen O, performed in the film by Scarlett Johansson and Joaquin Phoenix. So here’s me, explaining how it’s played. Enjoy and seeya again soon!

Some thoughts on The Avengers

There’s been a somewhat shocking lack of anything related to The Avengers here on the site. I mean, it is crushing box office records worldwide. And two years ago I called it my most anticipated upcoming film. So what gives? Well, for one thing, what can be said about it that hasn’t already been said? I mean, there are 255 reviews of this thing on Rotten Tomatoes right now. And most of those were up before I even saw it.

You don’t need me to tell you the movie’s awesome and well worth your time. But it just seems really strange to pass it by without any kind of comment. Maybe when the DVD comes out, I’ll revisit it then.

For now though, I thought people might be interested in a short conversation I had about it with Michael Walls-Kelly (WARNING: SPOILERS ABOUND).
