Christ, this one took forever to do, but in the time that it's taken, I've been pulling all my notes and scribbles together (both old and new) to, well, figure out what to write about next.
In my last blog I said I'd divulge my tale to you, the reader (again, how many out there that cares to read this), but… Continue

It's been a little bit over a month now since Spill.Con happened and about the same time that I finished my Spill Film entry. It wasn't much of a film, though. Despite me working on it past the last minute (and sending it in at five in the morning on the day the screenings were gonna take place),… Continue

Another person whom the public probably knows nothing about, but is familiar with his work the world over, has passed.
Ralph McQuarrie was originally a painter for Boeing aircrafts before he was recruited to do conceptual paintings for STAR WARS after George Lucas had seen some pictures of his work. He commissioned Ralph to do paintings to help visualize his ideas to help sell his… Continue

The man responsible for some of the most memorable sword fights in cinema for nearly the past 50 years, recently passed on at the age of 89.
Many may not have heard of him but he has been the hand behind the sword in many a movies, an exhaustive list that spans… Continue

So, I placed my order for tickets for next year's Celebration shindig (a four day gathering of STAR WARS fans and enthusiasts of the like) that's taking place again in Orlando, Florida. This being my first outing to such an event, and almost immediately after the next Spill.Con, I was wondering if there were any Spillions/Spillvilians/Spilldos who have plans on making the trip out and those already there planning to attend. Perhaps a Spill/nerd get-together?
It'd sure be swell to… Continue

Spilldoes and STAR WARS brethren/fans alike, it has come to my attention that an iconic (and sacred) movie relic is a stones throw away from utter obliteration. I call anyone-who-reads-this attention for one purpose: to aid in the restoration of this old familiar for future generations (and me) to visit. This home away from home, for many, is in some dire need of attendance. What could I be talking about? Why, it is that unforgettable igloo out under the sun; The Lars… Continue

...and their rabid
avid love of STAR WARS. They love it so much, that a company called Wicked Laser has produced a 'lightsaber-esque' tool
that is so powerful that it can, to quote, "...set fire to skin, and other body parts."
Look, even looks like a… Continue

So, it's Friday, you live in a small town, you've got nothing to do, and a friend calls you up to see if you wanna do something. What are you gonna do? Drive around the town a bit and then sit in the Wal-Mart parking lot or go see a movie that's said to be the most groundbreaking thing that's ever been caught on film? Why, you go see Avatar, of course! What do you do after seeing Avatar [and another movie]? You blog about it!
This time, to wash the taste of Avatar out of our mouths,… Continue

Ahh, Resident Evil. It feels like only yesterday since I last reviewed something of your ilk
but, boy, how I get excited each time you show up. Now your latest and, more importantly, main stream game has come out, (for which I've been looking forward to for the past couple of years), and the day it came out, I was obligated---no compelled

Alright, so there are many reviews out about the movie by now and what can I say about this movie that hadn't already been said?
...Besides that fact that this movie is nothing more than an over-hyped plate of mediocrity
This movie is fucking great! If there were two movies this year that exceeded the praise it was given, it… Continue

Well, it's another Resident Evil, ('Biohazard' for you Japs), movie and being a fan of the video game franchise; I had to see this. Fortunately this time, I didn't hate this one as much as the other movies!
I was SO looking forward to seeing this movie ever since I heard word of its production, and once I saw the film, I wasn't all too dissappointed with the film (to my surprise). Unlike the other 'Resident Evil 'movies, this movie… Continue

*Because I get asked this a lot and I get tired of re-posting (essentially) the same response all the the time. This is the blog someone will be referred to when someone asks why I don't like Heath Ledger's "Joker."*
Don't get me wrong, I liked
his performance. No one's gonna argue that he didn't do a good
job acting-wise, (but being a Puritan when it comes to my beloved comic characters), I can't… Continue

Ok. So it's been out for two days now and I'm sure most of you out there on the internets has played it now. Well, I bought this when it was released and spent those two days exploring all the features of the game. Though it has some minor flaws, it is fantastic either way.
The game revolves around four people; Louis, Zoey, Bill, and Francis and they are the survivors in the zombie apocalypse and they, well---need to survive. The story… Continue

Do you love toast? I know I do. For every STAR WARS fanboy, this toaster will remind you of your passion every morning or whenever you don't want to cook.
Yes, friend. It's a Darth Vader toaster. It embroiders each piece of bread with the iconic silhouette of the Sith Lord as well as producing a perfectly crisp and crunchy piece of morning goodness. An uber-fanboy's kitchen would not be complete without this toaster. I, however, will… Continue

Y'know! That guy who created 'ER'!
Okay...Well, um---he wrote a book and it was made into a movie that was somewhat popular a few years back. If that doesn't ring a bell then, hopefully, the picture below might jog your memory.
Yes, novelist Micheal Crichton has unexpectedly passed away at the age of 66. He lost in his secret struggle with cancer.
Good night, sweet dinosaur prince.

If you're a big STAR WARS fan, (and I know all of you are), and you've been just as giddy and enthusiastic for the upcoming movie 'Fanboys' as I have, well bad news, you're all gonna have to play with me in the waiting game... Yes, it saddens me to say this but Fanboys has been delayed for release until January 2009.
As Harvey Weinstein explains to us:
"Fanboys": Harvey says the movie has been moved to January "so we… Continue

At first sight, this intro would have stricken fear into the heart of any real
STAR WARS fan. Well, you can lay those fears to rest for the first two episodes, (yeah, you read correctly. They opened with two episodes for the premiere.), return back to STAR WARS fundamentals.
Episode I: "Ambush"
'Ambush' regals a tale of Yoda on a mission to Toydaria to settle negotiations with the the king of the planet. On his way there,… Continue

This is my first (and probably only) blog.
I bought it, played it, and I gotta say---It's okay. It's got great visuals and a very well-written story but it doesn't quite gel together all too well. The gameplay is a little lack-luster and the camera isn't your friend. Though the visuals are fantastic, some levels just seem tacked in just so you can grind until something exciting exciting happens.… Continue
