Dune Made Who!? Dune Made You!

I honestly don’t think there’s a such thing as an ‘unfilmable’ novel–not any more, at any rate–especially with so many ways to present a work. You could choose network television–which brings certain advantages–or maybe HBO or Starz, or streaming options like Amazon or Netflix. You have to match the material to the venue. This is […]

Is Apple 00Crazy!?

I just read in The Hollywood Reporter that Apple is reportedly vying for the rights to distribute James Bond (along with Amazon, Sony and Warner Bros) movies, which I am trying to get my head around. Now keep in mind such a move would likely give Apple exclusive access to Bond’s entire back catalog (as […]

Steve Jobs – Official Trailer 1

Michael Fassbender appears to be an excellent Steve Jobs in Steve Jobs.  That being said, the trailer seems to spend a bit of time focusing on some of his more…unsavory behaviors, such has the way he was a dick toward his ex.  It comes off a bit unseemly, though I guess as long as it’s balanced by […]

Steve Jobs – Teaser Trailer

When the news came out that David Fincher was no longer directing the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, and that Danny Boyle was, people on various forums were complaining about what a terrible choice that was (especially compared to Fincher). I wasn’t amongst them because I have always thought that Boyle was a very talented director.  Everything […]

Meet Baymax!

As you can tell from the screenshots of the Tweets that I have included below, I have been having a few conversations with Baymax, of Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6.  He’s very literal, as is the way with most machines–and reminds me quite a bit of Apple Inc’s Siri. Besides, how can you resist a mug like […]

‘The Den’ Review

“”The Den,” The Debut Film From Zachary Donahue, Is A Startlingly Effective Thriller” When I first heard about Zachary Donahue‘s thriller, “The Den” I the first thing that popped into my mind was the place where an animal lives. And in sense, I was right though on the face of it the movie revolves around Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia), […]

‘RoboCop’ Review

“RoboCop 2.0 is new, and not exactly improved, but it’s still worth the upgrade.” I have an iPad 2, and I really liked iOS 6, and was perfectly content with it.  Soon enough, Apple came out with iOS 7, and when I upgraded I didn’t like it.  It was all shiny and colorful, but different […]

‘Jobs’ Trailer

Ashton Kutcher isn’t a great actor.  Heck, I am not sure that’s he’s even a good one.  That being said, looking at the trailer for “Jobs,” his movie about Steve Jobs and the creation of Apple, Inc., there are moments that he looks EXACTLY like Jobs. This doesn’t by any stretch means that Kutcher is […]

iOS 6 Available For Download

I downloaded iOS 6 for my iPad 2 a few hours ago, and am in the process of doing the same for my iPad touch (Yeah, I am just a bit invested in the Apple ecosystem, known to some as a “walled garden”). One of the first things that I noticed was that, at least […]
