Destro Swinging On The Pegs

Destro At Target

I don’t do much toy collecting these days for a variety of reasons, but I still have a love for some specific G.I. Joe characters.  My two all time favorite characters are Storm Shadow (the Cobra ninja) and his G.I. Joe counterpart Snake Eyes.  I’m such a big fan of those two characters that I’ll pick up a figure of them even if I’m not collecting the entire line. Anyhow… There’s a Storm Shadow figure … Continue reading

The Phantom Menace In 3D – I Hope It Fails Miserably

The Phantom Menace In 3D

I’ll warn you in advance… I have a feeling this is going to turn into a bit of a rant.  I have a feeling that I may insult a few folks and for that I apologize, but quite frankly I’m at the end of my rope.  Don’t say I didn’t give you a head’s up. My respect for George Lucas is officially gone.  The man that created what I consider to be the greatest series … Continue reading

Honestly? The Doggie Doo?

Doggie Doo Game

I ran across this little gem the other day and it compelled me to write.  Regardless of my social media banterings, I tend to be a little bit slow on the uptake on these sorts of “phenomenons”. I’d never heard of a Leap Pad until the wife told me I had to be at Target five mornings a week before 8:00 AM to get one. I’d never heard of The Elf On The Shelf until … Continue reading

Will I See Transformers? I’m A Child of the 80’s… You Bet!

Transformers - Then And Now

It’s summertime and that means blockbuster movies of the week!  Last night at midnight, the sequel to Michael Bay’s Transformers hit the big screen.  Already this morning the movie is being absolutely slammed in reviews.  It’s being called slow, plodding, etc.  And I can’t wait to see it! For those that don’t know, The Transformers are robots that morph (transform) into vehicles and other objects to blend in to their surroundings.  The property first came … Continue reading

10 Years Later This Geek Is Done Defending Lucas

Star Wars 10 Years Later

Let me start off by saying I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan.  Always have been and I always will be.  Those movies and everything associated with them will always have a special place in my heart.  By association I’m a huge fan of George Lucas and the galaxy far far away that he created.  That said, on the 10 year anniversary of The Phantom Menace, this geek is done defending him. Ever since the final … Continue reading

Chewie’s Review of ‘Transformers’

Transformers (2007)

OK…  I will take this step by step and keep this mostly spoiler free (in case you haven’t seen this flick yet).  Please keep in mind that I saw this in a DLP theater so it was essentially like watching a high definition version of the movie. First off… This is NOT a kids movie.  Yeah yeah yeah, I know that it’s based on the kids toys from the early 80’s but this is a … Continue reading
