The short answer is I liked it. On Monday night I was invited to a special IMAX test screening of Warner Brothers Watchmen movie that will be released this coming Friday to a theater near you.  Why did I call it a “test screening?”  Because it’s one of the longest IMAX movies ever attempted and […] Read More

 About nine months ago I ran across one of the most bizarre toy finds I’ve ever run across.  I picked up a couple of sets just to blog about them but I was never really able to get a handle on what to write other than to just show them off and ask "isn’t this… Read More
