By and large, I'm getting pretty sick of the rash of young adult supernatural stories that have sprung up in the wake of 'Twilight.' And truth be told, when I heard about 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,' that is precisely what I thought it would be. Based on a series of novels by…Continue
We stand tall and face it all together this week on The Plot Hole as we tackle one of the biggest movies of the year, Skyfall, 007’s triumphant return to the big screen after a four-year gap. We review, analyze, muse, mutter, rant and everything in between for what should satisfy all those Bond fans out there.
In addition to a bit of Bond-themed trivia, the gang – John, Steven, Simon and myself – chat Transformers 4 news as well as discuss the new trailers for…Continue

The James Bond franchise has existed for half a century with six actors having played the iconic spy up to now. Outside of Australian vs. Welsh, or Irish vs. Scottish, there hasn't been a great deal of diversity within this group of actors. If rumors are to believed, there may be a major change on…Continue
Spill Dot Con is just around the corner (like... in three days), and hordes of you Spilleos are about to descend upon Austin like locusts unto Egypt.
Yeah, kinda like that.
Now, some of you are getting here early and may be looking for things to do to…Continue
While this blog doesn't necessarily focus purely on the movie side of sexism which is so bizarre and infuriating, I've written this blog to reflect on the concerns of sexism and relationship roles all across pop culture. Spill definitely covers sexism very well in particular reviews, but I feel like it can't be stressed enough how movies try to sell positive relationships as being mean-spirited and apathetic. But with all of our technology, I believe our generation can counter against major…Continue
One of the key components to any James Bond film, apart from the gadgets, fast cars, and cat-stroking villains, is its women. There was a time when all that was required of a Bond girl was a pretty face, but as the franchise grew, more and more females proved to be both adept fellow agents and even worthy adversaries for Bond. Sam Mendes' …Continue
Despite some of the things that people have said about this movie, this is actually a movie that is worthy of being a sequel to the last Sherlock Holmes! Although it may be worthy of the last film, is it superior or is it another entertaining yet slightly disappointing continuation of the previous story and pre-existing characters?
This time around, fans of Holmes & Watson's (Robert Downey Jr & Jude Law respectively) adventures will be pleased to know that we get…Continue

BLUE VELVET (Blu-Ray)
A very special conversational review between the LEOG's own Catherine Burke and…
For your eyes only: a press conference was held in London with director Sam Mendes and cast members of the next James Bond film where it was confirmed that the title of the next Bond film will be 'Skyfall.' It was also revealed that the plot of the film will revolve around something (or someone)…Continue
ROBOTECH - THE COMPLETE SERIES (DVD)...Guest Review by HARRIS
When Cyrus asked me if I wanted to review an anime boxed set that…Continue
Howdy folks, Cyrus here with the post-mortem on this year's annual LEOG Halloween bash. To no one's surprise, we were all a little drunk when our own Brian Salisbury was recording audio of us at the actual party (as is our tradition). So forgive our goofiness, and the recording quality (my bad, I forgot to set the levels...in my…Continue
Even though I've always been a huge fan of "The Three Musketeers", for some reason, I've never gotten around to any version of author Alexander Dumas' OTHER most famous…Continue
Despite my obsessive love and adoration for the first "Potter" film, my 8-10 year old self was kind of upset with the lack of action in it. 2001-2003 was my ZOMG HARRY POTTER LORD OF THE RINGS phase. Anything that didn't have magic, mythical creatures, dark storylines and swords, was a waste if time. So, you can imagine my…
