Killing Time – April 3, 2014

 “Modern man thinks he loses something – time – when he does not do things quickly. Yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains, except kill it.”
― Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving

 We stand poised for two of potentially the greatest geek months in history.  Captain America The Winter Soldier releases wide tomorrow and is at 91% at Rotten Tomatoes at the time of publication.  Sunday, the greatest fantasy show in television history returns – Game of Thrones – for its fourth season.  Tuesday, gamers get the next LEGO fix with LEGO The Hobbit.  On April 16th, Chris Nolan’s cinematographer Wally Pfister makes his directorial debut with the exceedingly cool-looking Transcendence and then May is one of the most packed months in movie history: Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla, X-Men Days of Future Past and Maleficent.  I’m going to be a very busy nerd.

Killing Time milestones this week: The site passed 66,000 hits this week, 1650 posts, and 20 followers just by Tumblr!  The geography stays Greenland-free, which I’m beginning to suspect is the result of a French Guianan smear campaign….however, that may be massively paranoid.

The most viewed post of the week was my review of Noah by almost 2 to 1.

  1. Can X-Men really be as good as it looks? Is that even possible? All these movies are arriving in my universe just in the nick of time. Trust me when I say I need the buzz these films are going to provide. The one that’s going to really help is Transcendence, because it’s the only non-sequel/remake/reimagining in the lot, and I won’t know a whole lot about it going in, because I won’t be reading the reviews. That’s my attitude with original films now. I’m savoring the existence of every one. Thank God no one thought to rewrite this script as a reimagining/reboot of Max Headroom. Also on the plus side, I get to witness the first directorial effort from a very talented man.


    1. It’s sad they’re so rare, though I am SO grateful that optioned properties have gotten the ramp up in quality they largely have. I’m just as stoked for that as I am the franchise films, which is why I included it. If you want to go one week further there’s Edge of Tomorrow and the adaptation of one of my favorite books: The Fault in Our Stars. Week after that is How to Train your Dragon 2! It just goes on! Check out the montage my friend Amon made for summer 2014; he’s super-talented and it’s like meth for going to the movies lol.
