The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review

 

Is 48fps the future of movies?  That is one of the biggest topics about The Hobbit.  Some have said it looks terrible, while some have praised it.  Well I’ve seen it in the theater in High Frame Rate 3D, and I would like to praise it and this great movie.

Top 5 Holiday Movies – Jim’s List

Jingle-All-The-Way4

Last year Mike posted his top 5 holiday movies, this year he took on his top 5 holiday games.  I have my own list of top 5 movies that I would like to contribute for this year.  No they aren’t really a list of sci-fi or action movies.  This is a more traditional list that you would expect to see for Christmas movies.

Top 5 Alternative Geek-friendly Christmas Movies

 

It’s that time of year again. The time when every channel on television shows those old classic Holiday films we’ve all seen time and time again. For clarification’s sake, I’ll say here I’m using “Holiday” and “Christmas” interchangeably because that’s how everyone else uses those words, they’re just too politically correct to admit it.
