Watch The Social Dilemma STAT

Practically every single day this past week, I had an idea of what I wanted to blog about but couldn’t get to it on my to-do list. By the next day, that idea was supplanted with another one. Then, last night, we watched Netflix’s The Social Dilemma. The Social Dilemma is an approximate hour-and-a-half documentary …

Welcome Home, Spidey

Spider-Man: Homecoming is an apt title for Marvel’s first movie adaptation of the character since working out a rights deal with Sony. But that’s not the only thing that’s perfect about this movie. (Not perfect as in Wonder Woman perfect – because that’s a whole other ballgame – but perfect nonetheless). Since discovering that Spider-Man …

No Wonder

I’ve been so busy with the launch of my book and planning Wonder Boy’s 10th birthday party, that I just realized I never posted about Wonder Woman. No worries though. It’s not like the internet needs another review of the movie. You all know it’s fantastic already. So this post is really not *about* Wonder …

Star Trek Beyond

I guess I’m a Trekkie at heart. I grew up watching the original series on late-night reruns, could recite the intro monologue complete with Shatner-esque pauses, and wanted to be Mr. Spock (pointy ears and all). Truth be told, while I love all things Star Wars now, I’d never even seen its original trilogy until …

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Updated 4/1/16 (see below). Yesterday was the day I’d been waiting for with mixed emotions: the premiere of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Thrilled to once again see my beloved superhero on the big screen; anxious at the possibility of him being relegated to second best by that annoying bat. Don’t get me wrong: …

A House Divided

A lot of noteworthy stuff happened this weekend: It was Valentine’s Day. The 13yo attended his first school dance (and actually had fun). We went to a local restaurant’s grand opening (and wine tasting, ftw!). Justice Scalia died. I won a door prize at a health fair (seriously, I never win anything). We saw Deadpool …

Am I too old for this sh*t?

Lately, I’ve been feeling older than I should. I’m certain it’s due to the creaks and pops my joints make or the involuntary groans that escape my mouth upon any movement. No, seriously. We’ve been doing this “boot camp” at the local YMCA for the past couple of weeks. Tuesday was heavy on the biceps …

Superman versus Batman

Last week Warner Bros announced they’d be releasing the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,  the anticipated 2016 sequel to Man of Steel (2013), in select theaters. Sometime between 24 and 48 hours later, that teaser was leaked online. So far I’ve seen mixed reviews of it, from “epic” to “underwhelming.” …

Big Fat Liar Pants

In our house, when someone says something that’s clearly not true, we call them a “big fat liar pants.” Now, this is not to make light of telling lies; lying (and omitting the truth) receives harsh punishment, just ask the Girl, who’s currently grounded from all electronics. But, sometimes, there are things said even though …

I Need a Super Man

Okay, “need” might be a strong word. And I’m sure if I tweeted about this, someone would surely throw up the “firstworldproblems” hashtag. But in the grand scheme of what makes me smile, I need Superman to be a super man. Words cannot express (which pains me to even say) how excited I am for …
