About a week back (on Sunday, June 5th), I stopped over at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention located at The Reef (1933 S. Broadway, LA, CA). They hold this thing every few months or so. Click HERE to visit their site.
I’ve seen all of the movies and read a couple of the books. All I can say is ‘Wow.’ I really had a good time there. I haven’t been to the one in Orlando, but have caught some of the videos on YouTube. But nothing beats the ‘in-person’ experience. They really outdid themselves. The architecture is just fantastic and it really does feel as if you are walking along the streets of Hogsmeade and exploring Hogwarts. It’s as if you stepped right into the film.
When it comes to bad TV shows or movies, I tend to always give the acting a pass. I usually focus my sites on the other things wrong with them such as the writing, directing, effects, or editing. I don’t usually notice the acting unless it’s just crazy bad or lazy. For some reason, I’m just very forgiving of it.
I’m still very much on the fence when it comes to CBS’s “Supergirl.” Though I like all things Super, this show, and it’s girl empowerment message that it not so subtly tries to jam down your throat, seems to be stuck in the 90’s somewhere along with that other sub-par Super show “Lois and Clark.”
