After a 16 year absence (not counting the 1996 made-for-TV movie), the Time Lord was back, along with his magical blue box, the TARDIS, as Doctor Who made its proper, triumphant return on March 26th, 2005. Christopher Eccleston, from the north of England, was tabbed to portray this newest incarnation of the recently regenerated Doctor. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
I’ve been a fan of Andrei Esca’s web comic Esca Works for a while now. I first found his comic when someone sent me an image of his character Sam who resembles the Gentlemen character James (A.K.A. Me). I started reading all of his comics because I’m vain and like looking at cartoon versions that resemble me. Besides of vanity, his comic is drawn beautifully and humor escalates him above most comics that I used to read (So, go to his site now!). This bastard also took a long hiatus awhile back so it’s good to be able to see brand new content from him. One of the things he did recently was draw the 6 Gentlemen. I feel honored to have our characters drawn by this man and love the fuck out of how he made me extremely ripped. So gaze upon his beautiful artwork and be in awe!
Do you remember that one perfect night? One where you and your friends were invincible and the world was yours for the taking? No? Well, Gary King does, and he’s convinced four of his friends to help him recreate that momentous night. And what a night it is as the dangers of nostalgia and not being able to look forward are explored in the frantic sci-fi comedy, The World’s End. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
The Bridge (Wednesday nights, 7 pm) is the latest crime drama to charge out of the FX network stables. It stars Diane Kruger as aasperger-ish, issue-laden, El Paso detective Sonya Cross and Demián Bichir as freshly-vasectomied, Chihuahua detective Marco Ruiz. Cross and Ruiz form an unlikely dynamic duo while investigating serial killings along the Texas-Mexico border, the first of which we’re exposed to is a Texas judge whose body is left on the border line of The Bridge of the Americas (see what they did there?).
Annabeth Gish also stars (probably best known as Special Agent Monica Reyes on the post-shark jump X-Files). She discovers her late husband has kept a few secrets from her, the most sinister of which appears to be behind a pad locked door in a remote area of their ranch. We aren’t shown what’s inside yet, but if I had to venture a guess, I’d have to go with either Sloth or a mammoth collection of bestiality-type porn.
The car that the diabolical antagonist uses to drop off the body in the opening scene is traced back to has-been reporter Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard), who ends up getting trapped inside said car with a bomb rigged to a cell phone timer. The detectives then receive a message from possibly Jigsaw, stating, “We’ve got some interesting times ahead.”
I hope you’re right serial killer.
I hope you’re right.
This was a solid pilot with some good twists and turns. There’s also a great scene at Detective Ruiz’ captain’s palatial estate (complete with big cats) that alone merits a look.
I give The Bridge 4 rico pan dulces out of 5.

In the near future, mankind will be invaded by way of a rift between worlds in the middle of the ocean. And so the war for the survival of mankind begins in “Pacific Rim”, a movie that I believe could easily be one of the best movies that no one went to see. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
