GeekDad Report: Here Comes Science

This past X-Mass my family was given a CD, They Might Be Giants: Here Comes Science.  Our initial reaction was one of mixed indifference.  Truthfully, receiving a physical CD these days feels a bit odd.  I haven’t bought one myself for a few years now.  It was a happy reminder of my youth, opening that […]

The Walking Dead – Still, had me waiting…with my thumb on fast forward.

The Walking Dead – Still, had me waiting…with my thumb on fast forward.

For the second week in a row, I found myself so bored while watching Still, I had my thumb resting on the fast forward button because I just wanted it to be over. Did I push it? No. But The Walking Dead is slowly shambling toward being queued up on the DVR so I can […]

Enjoy a Winter’s Tale this Valentine’s Day

Enjoy a Winter’s Tale this Valentine’s Day

Winter’s Tale is a genuinely fantastical endearing story, both heartwarming and heart wrenching, a non-traditional love story. I had few hopes; the tagline for this movie sold the wrong film. “This is not a true story, this is a love story.” While accurate, it definitely fails to capture the essence of the story, of which […]

American Hustle is fascinating and funny

American Hustle is fascinating and funny

American Hustle reminded me why I love film. It was engrossing and engaging, even intimately hilarious, and worthy of the hype.

Benedict Cumberbatch Breathes Fire Into The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug slips some clever storytelling into a ridiculously energetic extravaganza.

Man of Steel – A Trio of Reviews

Man of Steel – A Trio of Reviews

Three WPR staffers went to the advance screening of Man of Steel. It only makes sense they review it together, so here are their thoughts in one big read up. Hands were touched in popcorn buckets, beers shared afterwards, and a high speed police chase involved no causalities #yolo.
