FaceOFF is BACK and it snuckup on me like a *&^%$#@ Ninja!

So, I missed the first episode and had to go back and watch it, nothing major, you could easily see who was the talent and who had it rough. Not sorry to say it, but the two who got sent home, while they might've had a little more to show, didn't have anywhere near the talent or applied-exp as many of the other cast members.

Ok, EP 2: The Horses as the Line Up already. :)
@cigneutron Is One To Watch.
@dinnarosecima Is dangerous with her paint. Even without going big, watchout for her.
@GeorgeTroester Could Take It All.
@KeaghlanAshley Another dangerous painter.

Everyone else kinda fell into the middle for one reason or another; not that they were bad, just didn't stand out. Most importantly, they survived by not making the horrifically stupid mistake of making a character named after a CLOCK into a RAT. I DON'T CARE that it was also apart of his nickname; not what the judges asked for. His partner skated by only because it wasn't HER idea, but going along with a bad idea is equally an issue in the long run, cause you can't be trusted to speak up about BAD IDEAS and if they go to far, crap the bed.

Finally, the judges—more than once, about 3 or so characters—said it isn't a good idea to play the idea "right on the nose". A lie: The Shark Gangster wasn't on the nose it was IN YOUR FACE, but it's only saving grace was how good it was. So the lesson is, you can play it Right On The Nose, but you've got to execute it masterfully to get away with it.

My review of BvS: Dawn of Justice

First, let me say how hyped I was for this movie. I was nuts over it.
These characters are my childhood, shit, my adulthood, more so than any other heroes.
I was so excited that for the last month I was avoiding everything about it online and Tv; of course, you can't dodge it all, but I did my best.
I was even taking the time to workout beforehand all the things I didn't understand, like or agree with, based on the trailers I'd seen (before going Dark) and telling all my friends my ideas as a way to counteract all the negative talk already circling the drain—and this was before the actual first reviews came out.
I was supposed to see the movie with one of my best friends, a Die-In-the-Cape Superman aficionado, who like me, also enjoyed Man of Steel. But I'm glad I didn't see it with him, because he was loosing faith early on, despite all my theories and how I fervently denounced hater trash-talking—mostly cause many weren't fans of the genre or didn&…

Finally, my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)

Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow) I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…

My review of Justice League

So, if you read my review of BvS: Dawn of Justice, and you follow me on FB and Twitter, you're likely surprised I even saw this movie. Me too. But, it just so happens an opportunity fell into my lap and so I decided to check it out.

No, this isn't at all the JL I'd hoped for, but it's what we got.

First, as I did with BvS I'll jump right in and say IT ISN'T TERRIBLE!!!!!!! (unlike BvS)
Ok, Now, let's rate it:
Overall, it's between a 6ish and 7, depending on what you think are the pros and cons, which we'll get to. (Again, I rated BvS a 3.5 to 5, so much improvement)

The plot is kinda straight forward and so I won't really much comment, though, the gathering of the team was weak. To be fair, really, the first half of the movie was bad to not very good—it was really  simple, worse than childlike in it's reasoning: "Hey guys, lets make a team to save the world" and so, we'll cover each teammate in turn because that took up a…
