Review: Vision Vol. 1 – Little Worse Than A Man

It’s the quintessential American Dream: a respectable government job and a house in the DC suburbs. The picture wouldn’t be complete without a beautiful wife and two happy children, or at least that’s what the Vision thinks. So he went to a lot of trouble and made them.

Nominated for a Hugo Award this year, Tom King’s Little Worse Than A Man (with illustrations by Gabriel Walta) shows what happens when a non-human hero is determined to live a human life. It’s a story that starts out light and then gets dark surprisingly fast.

Thoughts on the Dirty Dancing Remake

By guest writer Emily A. Filmore.

My 11-year-old daughter, Sage, and I watched the 2017 ABC remake of Dirty Dancing. While I think it is a good attempt to revive an old classic, I spent the entire three hours mourning the incomparable Patrick Swayze and comparing the whole casts’ dance skills, the cinematography, and yes, the storyline to my beloved original; she thinks it was a fun, cute movie, and really enjoyed the singing. I was exactly Sage’s age when the original came out, so this was great timing; it was one of the first adult movies I ever watched…and in 1987 me getting to see two people kiss on the lips was quite a racy event! Today, Sage has seen much more than this on network television, so nothing about the movie shocked her.

Review: Baywatch

Let’s face it: The Rock is awesome. And pretty much everything he does is awesome, good or bad. So when it was announced that he was doing the Baywatch movie based on the television show which ran eleven seasons from 1989-2001, and it was getting this 21 Jump Street movie treatment, where they poke fun at it while actually making a movie about it, I was sold. What could have been really terrible ended up being a hilarious and raunchy movie that was very entertaining.

Binary System Podcast #83 – Zombies Run with special guest Hannah

If you’ve ever said “the only way I’d go running is if something was chasing me” then you already know one of the reasons we’re fans of the Zombies, Run app. This week the twins’ sister Hannah Wallace guest stars on the podcast to talk about all the other reasons we love this post-apocalyptic game/story/activity tracker, where zombies randomly show up to make you run faster while our favorite British voice actors cheer us on.

We also fall down the rabbit hole of podcasts from across the pond, and how Hannah may or may not be stalking actors who perform Shakespeare with soup.
