When every other winter day in the Maritimes looks like this: Most normal people would want to play a board game that looks like this: Or this: Or maybe this: But, noooooo, I gotta be all thematically-appropriate n'...

The first #HotTubTimeMachine was kinda fun...but I'm not sure if it was "sequel material".  #moviereview

Board-gamer math: Dominion + Scrabble = AWESOME. Here's my #review of Paperback! #boardgames
Our game of Small World flew by so quickly that Mike had a chance to bust out his copy of Paperback. So, what exactly is Paperback? Well, in a nutshell, it's Dominion meets Scrabble. Desirous of a less abstruse rubric? Then...

If you were to ask me to name a movie that best epitomizes the "magic of cinema", I'd be quick to mention Close Encounters of the Third Kind. #moviereview #closeencountersofthethirdkind  
***WARNING!*** This is gonna be a fairly in-depth analysis and, as such, I'm gonna dip inordinately deep into spoiler territory. Watch first and then read this later!  If you were to ask me to name a movie that best epitom...

I had a poster on my wall that looked a lot like this as a kid. I'd sit and stare at that sucker for hours. ‪ #startrek #enterprise #lifebeforetheinternet

I had something like this as well and would study it for hours, too. As far as I'm concerned every Enterprise has been beautiful, but this one is the ultimate.

Elysium might be preachy and CHAPPiE might be uneven but District 9 is still a masterpiece.
  Back in 2009 I wrote the following about Neill Blomkamp's feature-length debut: "Mark my words: District 9 will go down in film history as one of the most important sci-fi movies ever made. It's the best genre film I've see...

Wow, over EIGHTY THOUSAND visits to my tabletop #boardgaming   blog since 2012. Pity I haven't figured out a way to monetize it yet. I guess it's a good thing that I write purely out of passion.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who's ever visited! Here's my latest session report and review: Star Wars: Imperial Assault!

Am I broken?

+David Pretty no, not just that, this has way better scripting, acting... everything is just plain better about it.

The best thing about the Star Wars Holiday Special is the Nostalgia Critics Review of it -'J
