hex dimension screen 1

Just a quick post. Due to the back problems mentioned in my previous post, I’m having to hold back on writing here, but here is some stuff I did manage to write over on Hex Dimension:

I started my X-Files retrospective back up, which begins with season two’s “Little Green Men”.

And starting to rewatch The X-Files reminded me why I loved the series so much. I’m trying to continue my episode-by-episode retrospective, but I’m unsure if I will continue that format and just end-up doing cheat’s guides to the series.

Having watched a remastered version of William Friedkin’s Sorcerer (1977) at a special screening, I explained why you should see it too.

Another retrospective, but this re-imagining of The Wages of Fear is something that more people need to see. It’s an amazing film that at its time of release flopped due to poor timing of its release, a misleading title (that’s right, it has nothing to do with magic) and numerous other factors that have nothing to do with it being a bad film.

I read volume one of Kieron Gillen’s Über and pieced together a review about it.

It’s a super gross comic book series about World War II, Nazis, strange experiments, hyper-violence and lots and lots of gore. It’s the kind of comic that you can’t stop reading ’cause the story is so good, but you have to look away every now and then due to the strewn body parts.

I had the misfortune of watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and reviewed it.

Yeah, I wasn’t impressed with the latest Spider-Man film. I’d enjoyed the previous one, not that I thought it was an superb film, but this one left a lot to be desired. If you haven’t seen it yet, my review’s spoiler-free (spoilers have been redacted), so if you want to know why I thought it was bad – check out my review.

I am looking forward to my back getting better.
