Oblivion Director: Joseph Kosinski Writers: Karl Gajdusek, Michael Arndt and Joseph Kosinski Starring: Tom Cruise, Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman and Olga Kurylenko Seriously, I’m about to decide that any movie Tom Cruise is in is worth watching at least once.

Day 3 of ECCC is bittersweet. We have had so much fun and this is the final day of the con. The urge to squeeze every ounce of fun out of this day is stronger than any of the other days of the con.

Some 10 minutes later, coffee in hand, we made our way to the convention center. Last year we were directed through the convention center, out the back side, around the block and through a park to the end of the line. This year they mailed the badges out early, which is good because all three days sold out long ago. So we went in, up the … Continue reading →
This came home from the shopping mall today and it is gorgeous. I must say, are those gills on Godzilla’s neck there? I mean we always knew Godzilla was amphibious but if those are gills that is a level of detail that is very exciting to this long time fan.
