As a supporter of equal pay, I am in supporter of State Representative Jay Livingstone‘s bill, An Act Relative to Pay Equity, which will, according to MassNOW: This bill takes an innovative and cost-effective approach to addressing two key elements of the gender pay gap: women earn less than men in the same jobs, and … Continue reading

Hillary Clinton 2016

Hillary Clinton 2016

First Lady of Arkansas. First Lady of the United States. Junior Senator of New York. Sixty-seventh Secretary of State. Hillary Rodham Clinton is a trailblazer. I am ecstatic that she is running for President of the United States, the highest-glass ceiling in the country. It was, after all, only in 2008, that I took part in … Continue reading

On Justice League: War

On Justice League: War

Justice League: War has similarities to the live-action film, Green Lantern, where both an origin story take place and a galactic foe appears as a antagonist. Is the film bad? Not really, but it doesn’t constitute the best either.   According to the ScreenRant review: Justice League: War is the DC Universe animated feature adaptation of … Continue reading

On Sleepless in Seattle

On Sleepless in Seattle

Featuring Tom Hanks (The Da Vinci Code, Catch Me If You Can), Bill Pullman (Torchwood: Miracle Day, Independence Day), and Victor Garber (Legally Blonde), Sleepless in Seattle is a sweet-intended movie about finding love via radio show. According to Decider‘s article, “My First Time … Watching ‘Sleepless In Seattle’ And Realizing Meg Ryan Is a Stalker“: Even though I’ve watched … Continue reading

On Aladdin

On Aladdin

Like The Last Unicorn, FernGully: The Last Rainforest, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Robin Hood, Aladdin was yet another animated film I saw as a kid. Ironically, though, it was also one of the first instances that lead me to realize that I was gay, because I developed a real crush on Aladdin.   Like most Disney … Continue reading

On Unreal

On Unreal

Unreal was one of more unique games I loved to play, as according to PC Gamer‘s article, “Reinstall: Unreal – we go native in Epic Games’ forgotten masterpiece“: Epic Games, now purveyors of grunting masculinity, offal and chainsaws, once had a line of family-friendly shareware platformers and pinball titles. The reason we no longer think … Continue reading

On Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

On Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

Although not related to Green Lantern: First Flight, it does share in the same character designs. Ironically, though, this film came out a mere ten days of Green Lantern, of which they both share in writers Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green, alongside Geoff Johns (Smallville episodes Legion, Absolute Justice, and Booster), and Alan Burnett (Batman The Animated … Continue reading

On Final Destination

On Final Destination

Final Destination, featuring Seann William Scott (Dude, Where’s My Car?), and Brendan Fehr (Roswell), has always been an enjoyable film. According to the ReelFilm review: Approaching Final Destination in the wake of its three sequels is certainly an interesting proposition, as it’s obvious virtually from the word go that the film is a much different animal than its … Continue reading

On Green Lantern: First Flight

On Green Lantern: First Flight

After seeing Green Lantern it was good to watch the animated features, starting with Green Lantern: First Flight. The title sequence for the film is actually very well done, but Hal Jordan does lack in characterization, causing me to lose interest in his character. On the other hand, the characters like Sinestro, the Guardians, and Boodikka … Continue reading

On Superman: Brainiac Attacks

On Superman: Brainiac Attacks

Although similar to Superman: The Animated Series, it is not connected with it. Superman: Brainiac Attacks is not inherently a terrible film overall. I have always been particualr towards Brainiac as a foe (see Smallville Season 5). According to the IGN review: Beware fellow Superman fans! This is not what you think it is. That … Continue reading
