If it's not broke, don't fix it.
I haven't heard anyone call The Lego Movie an instant classic, but I think it damn well should be. It is the greatest family film since the original Star Wars, and in some ways is the greatest family film of all time. The Lego Movie happens within a child's imagination. A child playing with Legos, who … Continue reading Everything (In This Movie) Is Awesome

The franchise is 14 years older than I am, … Continue reading Philosophy – The Dark Side IS Stronger (Yoda Was Wrong)
"If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territory, and crashes through barriers painfully, maybe even dangerously... I'm simply saying that life finds a way." And yet we continue to develop the most advanced kind of life form … Continue reading Jurassic Park – Why It’s The Most Important Movie Ever
