  • A Brand New Barbie – Mattel at Toy Fair 2016

    At this year’s Toy Fair, I was given the chance to preview some of Mattel’s current and upcoming toys, and there is a big emphasis on more, varied options for girls. Barbie’s new motto seems to be, “You can be anything”, a message that I wholeheartedly agree with. Mattel has a wide range of products […]


  • “Undrafted” Called Up to the Big Leagues

    Me and other Tyler Hoechlin fans have been waiting years for this news: Undrafted finally has a distributor! The baseball film – which also stars Joe Mazzello, Chace Crawford, and Aaron Tveit – was acquired by Vertical Entertainment, reports Deadline. It is bound for worldwide distribution, though a release date is still unknown. But, hey, after two […]


  • Star Wars and Super Heroes: LEGO at Toy Fair 2016

    Yesterday I was given the opportunity to get a sneak peek at some of LEGO’s current and upcoming sets. I braved negative temperatures and woke up way before dawn to take advantage of the invitation, and I’m really glad I did. LEGO’s 2016 Toy Fair pre-show preview featured a range of various interests; there were […]


  • The 100 3×04 Review: “Watch the Thrones”

    A change of leadership on The 100 is about to pave the way for all-out war between the Arkers and the Grounders. Which side are you on? “Watch the Thrones” was an episode that was very much focused on government and leadership. One of the things I have always wanted on The 100 was to learn more […]


  • The Magicians 1×04 Review: “The World in the Walls”

    In “The World in the Walls”, The Magicians went a bit off the rails. Literally. The bulk of the action in this week’s episode of The Magicians takes place inside Quentin’s head. Julia, angry and hurt after their confrontation last week, conspired with Marina and Kady to cast a spell on Quentin, effectively trapping him inside his […]


  • The Magicians 1×03 Review: Consequences of Advanced Spellcasting

    Thank you, The Magicians, for doing such a good job of reminding me why Quentin so annoyed me in the books. This week’s episode of The Magicians, “Consequences of Advanced Spellcasting”, had Quentin and Julia once again reunited, but the reunion was less than happy. One thing this confrontation did was remind us that the New York […]


  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Oh My!

    I had absolutely no expectations going into Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and that’s probably the best way to see a movie. When you go into a movie with no expectations, it allows you to be pleasantly surprised! Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors. I have the one-volume edition of her collected works. The […]


  • The Expanse 1×09 & 1×10 Review: “Critical Mass” & “Leviathan Wakes”

    Season 1 of The Expanse ended in an intense two-hour episode filled with bangs and bloodshed. After an entire season of questions, The Expanse finally delivered with some long-anticipated answers; namely, what happened to the Scopuli, the Canterbury, the Donnager, and Julie Mao. “Critical Mass” dedicated its cold open to showing what happened to Julie and how she ended up the way […]


  • The 100 3×02 Review: Wanheda, Part Two

    Last night’s episode of The 100 may as well have been called “Reunion”, since we had so many of them. Monty was reunited with his mother (I’ll get to that, I swear), and Clarke was reunited with both Bellamy and Lexa, both of which had less than optimal results. I wasn’t expecting both reunions so soon […]


  • The Magicians 1×02 Review: The Source of Magic

    When I reviewed the pilot for The Magicians back in December, I mentioned that Syfy had done an excellent job in keeping true to the atmosphere of Lev Grossman’s novels, even though elements of the story were different. I still believe that, even though I finished last night’s episode wondering why certain things had been changed. I’d […]
