Comic-Con In One Day?

Comic-Con is an event I look forward to every year. It’s a mini vacation, a few days at a nice seaside hotel and the ultimate nerd party where I’m surrounded by pretty much everything I love (including my friends and loving nerd wife).

The distraction comes from the fact that it’s You’ve Got Mail mashed with Food Network, sponsored by Twitter, and made by a guy that is well-respected by famous people.

Snowpiercer Review

I had heard bout this film months ago and then it got delayed. That can be a really bad sign for a film, depending on the reason. From what I’ve read, the reason here had nothing to do with the quality of the film, but the comapny releasing it. Supposedly Harvey Weinstein wanted to cut…
