The Best And Worst TV Shows/Web Series Of 2015

Better Call Saul     Master of None     Sense8     Daredevil

2015 was largely an underwhelming year for cinema (that best/worst list will be coming soon), but it was a good year for TV and web series. As per usual, cable and various other platforms (like Netflix) had the best series while the networks were generally a wasteland of tedious dreck. For the most part, I managed to avoid a lot of the “worst” series of the year so that list is fairly small this time around. Anyway, enough of my chatter, on with the list! Continue reading

The Best And Worst Films And TV/Web Shows Of 2014

2014 may have been a rather gloomy year in the world, but from a film and television perspective, there was much to admire.

As most people know, film studios traditionally save their best films for the end of the year, but 2014 was a strangely top heavy year. The box office may have been down in the summer, but most of my personal favorites came from that season (which is a real rarity to say the least). Likewise, a majority of the best new and returning TV series came early in the year with the fall primarily being filled with little more than network tripe.

Anyway, enough of my yammering, on with the list!   Continue reading

The Best And Worst Films And TV/Web Shows Of 2013

Before Midnight DVD Bates Motel Season 1 Blu-ray The Place Beyond The Pines Doctor Who- The Day of the Doctor Blu-ray New World Blu-ray Breaking Bad

After an underwhelming 2012 film year, 2013 was a definite improvement. While there weren’t a ton of films I would consider great, I did see a fair number of good ones. Yes, a majority of the “mainstream” films were clunkers (as they usually are), but there were a surprising amount of indie, VOD, and documentary gems released this year.

Over on the TV and web series side, it proved to be a solid year for these mediums as well. New shows like “Bates Motel” and “Orange Is the New Black” wowed audiences, returning favorites (such as “Game of Thrones” and “Doctor Who”) continued to have viewers glued to their screens, and a few shows ended with a bang (namely “Breaking Bad” and “Tron Uprising”).

So, without further adieu, here is my annual list! Continue reading

Radagast

With the release of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” a mere two weeks away, new shirts, tie-in books, collectibles, statues, and toys have begin to pop up in stores and on various websites. One of the most recent toy line releases comes from a relative newcomer to the toy scene- The Bridge Direct. In the company’s new three figure line of 6” figures, “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” aficionados now have the option of purchasing new action figures of Legolas Greenleaf, the villainous Azog, and the eccentric Wizard Radagast the Brown (which is the figure I will be reviewing here).
