 So long, and thanks for all the fish!
 
It's hard to believe that it was over six years ago that I and some ex-TV-Squaders started CliqueClack. We had some pretty high hopes at the time, that we could go out on our own and show AOL what it really meant to be writer-fans of television. It was an incredibly ambitious goal that we never came close to, but we quickly learned that that didn't matter to us. What did matter was that we had an outlet to write what we wanted, when we wanted, fo...

Although it’s been nearly five months since Robin Williams died, the devastating ripples his death left on the entertainment industry – and really the world at large – are still being felt. Ever the busy entertainer, Williams had five films released posthumously, the latest being 20th Century Fox’s Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. I think the only other film with Williams that has not yet been released is Absolutely Anything, which is due...

As the sun sets on San Diego, the first full day of Comic-Con 2014, too, comes to a close. The first day and a half of SDCC have been full of glamour and glitter, fashion and fame … wait, no, not Jem! (Though if the event continues to be the continuing evolution to a wider base of “Popular Culture,” it wouldn’t surprise me if Jem showed up next year.) Until then, however, CliqueClack will focus on whatever the SDCC planners have in store for us. ...

Zachary Levi's NerdHQ has become a staple of the San Diego Comic-Con since premiering in 2011. One of my favorite parts of what NerdHQ brings to the table is their "Conversations for a Cause" series. The most popular panels at the Convention Center are held in massive caves of rooms, but at NerdHQ, they are much more intimate affairs. And while they are ticketed events, the entirety of the proceeds go to Operation Smile, a Virginia-based (yeah!) ...

Belief is dangerous. No matter how you want to look at it, faith can lead to very bad choices, but there is also the reverse: it can also lead to the best choices. Common beliefs have changed and evolved through the course of humanity, but there are a few threads that have continued since the start of storytelling and writing. There is a strong desire to want life and reality to mean something in some "higher than" life way, that life isn't just ...

Something I wrote on +CliqueClack about my buddy +Jay Black and his upcoming TV movie.
Some of you may remember Jay Black from the old days of TV Squad, or maybe from the PodClack and Hungry Trolls podcasts he did for us, along with a brilliant post thrown in here and there. Or maybe you just know him as stand-up comedian Jay Black, showing up in a town near you, or even Vegas (baby)! I've even caught his act a couple of times, when he's been in my neck of the woods -- he's damn funny! I love him! He's gotten funnier every time! An...

January is not a month known for successful film launches. Sure, Oscar hopefuls who squeaked in via limited release before the end of the year see wider releases, but otherwise, January is where many projects go to die. When Blackhat – a film that was at one time talked about in Oscar circles – was scheduled for January, doubt began to creep in. But it’s Michael Mann, man! Director of one of my all time favorites, Heat. Not to mention mega-star C...

Combined, the first three days of San Diego Comic-Con – including preview night – rarely add up to the crammed schedule that is Saturday. If you’re a movie lover – and willing to camp out at least 15 hours in advance (according to my Twitter research on the last person I could find who got in and was sharing) – then Hall H is usually filled with awesomeness from Marvel, Warner Bros. and some of the other studio heavyweights. For those of us cover...

Agree, it wasn't as good as it could have been.
First off, let me apologize for the terrible pun in the movie, it's almost beneath me. However, the writing of this movie ... well, I'll get to that. I am still a defender of Garden State, Zach Braff's first movie, which is the movie that made my dad understand why I thought Natalie Portman was talented (as I recall, he had only seen her in the Star Wars movies). But manic pixie dream girl assertions aside, the movie was interesting in that it us...

We've all seen movies featuring sentient computers: 2001: A Space Odyssey, WarGames, Eagle Eye, Demon Seed, Colossus: The Forbin Project, TRON, and of course the Terminator movies. And we all know how badly things usually go once the computers become more intelligent and “alive” than their human counterparts. But what would happen if a human's intelligence and essence were to be uploaded into a super computer? That's the question posed by the new...
