Quick Thoughts on Thor

I just got back from seeing Thor in 3D, and I have many thoughts. Only a few of them are fully-formed enough to share right now, but maybe I’ll be able to go into more depth later. In the meantime‚Ķ One, why did I think it would be awesome if there were more 3D movies? […]

Reaction: Supernatural (6×18)

Hi, THL readers. Yes, I’m back again. I’ve been thinking of dropping NCIS, but I’m keeping SPN. I’d also like to do Fringe, but I can’t watch both at the same time. If I do do Fringe, perhaps I’ll wait until next season – and then it’ll have to be a day late. Hmmm. Anyway, […]

I’ll do my best to limit […]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCM4JiJ6B2I I really loved this movie. I just tried to persuade my housemate to go see it with me — this would be my second time, and her first.
