And I'm incredibly impressed, and sad, and saddened that it was cancelled. Probably my favorite interpretation of the DC universe, plus a very well-done long-form cartoon at that.
In nerddom, we're often asking ourselves "What?" (What are your favorite examples of this, what are the worst offenders for that?) And occasionally "How?" (How does the Flux Capacitor allow for time travel?) But we ask ourselves "Why?" much less often. In what may become an ongoing series, I want to remedy that.
What do you think is going to be the best blockbuster of the summer?
I guess this just became my new most anticipated movie of the year:
Marvel Studios has now put out 9 feature films, with one more due out this year and two next year. They are a juggernaut and their success has partly been due to fantastic casting.
In case you missed it, the new Star Wars cast was announced today. While there were some surprises, most of the cast had previously been rumored, giving us all lots of time to speculate on who will be playing who. Now that's its official, we can get those speculations out in the open. Here are mine, ordered from most…
Yup, its about time for me to have another rant about film criticism. And yup, it another thing I've complained about before, but here we go.....
We live in a blessed age.... we have not one, but two hilarious, bizarre, thought provoking animated shows full of heart and fantastic writing... but....
This post is collating some thoughts I had over on Rob's article earlier today, but also things I have discussed many times here on other forums. I am writing them here partly to start some discussion and partly so I have a clear, concise statement of these things to give me something to reference in future.
Hey, remember when used to come here all the time? Anyone miss me?
Back again for a much more relaxed help desk, as most of the undergrads have gone home! So any questions about physics of any kind, or science in general, ask away and I'll do my best to answer 'em!
The constant nods to the prius I can take, but when the goddamn car literally saves the day... it's just too much.
The Desk is super busy today as it's exam week for the undergrads, so I haven't had time to a new board. You're gonna have to put up with a classic! Anyways... any questions?
This is some stupid bullshit. I thought we were over genre-sniping in movies by now, but evidently print media still has some barbs to get in there. Ugh. http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2013/jun/…
Any niggling doubts about the universe? Post 'em here!
Physics Help Desk is a day early this week due to some switching around to accommodate schedules. I'm bored, no one is here, let's get this show on the road!
Physics Help Desk time again. It should at least be busy today as midterms start tomorrow.
Today I have to sit in a small room and wait for people to come and ask me questions about physics. It is called Physics Help Desk and it's pretty dull. So I do things like this:
I don't know if y'all have seen this, but it's great. I really love Matt Smith's Doctor.. but what I didn't realize (I don't tend to watch cast interviews etc.) is that I also really love Matt Smith.
