Review of Syfy's Freakishly Addicting 'Opposite Worlds'

Review of Syfy's Freakishly Addicting 'Opposite Worlds'
I’ve spent the last 24hrs. of my life working, barely sleeping, and marathoning all 12 episodes of a new Syfy Channel reality competition series called Opposite Worlds. Opposite Worlds is a reality game show that some have described as a combination of Big Brother meets The Hunger Games. Before this week, I hadn’t even heard... Read more »

Movie Review: The Gamers

Movie Review: The Gamers
The third installment of The Gamers independent film series from Dead Gentlemen Productions, will be released online August 15th. In anticipation for the release of The Gamers: Hands of Fates, I thought I’d go back and watch the two previous Gamers movies. The Gamers films have a huge cult following in the tabletop gaming community. Last... Read more »

ThunderCats (2011) Review

I’m ashamed to admit that I actually forgot the new ThunderCats series was premiering last week. As of late, most of my television viewing has been via Netflix Instant Queue. For some reason I thought the series wouldn’t begin until August. I searched the internet high and low to find out when an encore presentation... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 19 Dominion

This episode was so intense. There was some brutal, hardcore, gladiator style combat. Sparks were flying, blood was flowing, and Clark and Oliver never looked so manly. I’ll admit, I was skeptical of a Zod episode at this point in the series. But they were able to tie in Darkseid to this episode, and it... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 17 Kent

I was very excited to see John Schneider in another episode. Even though the Jonathan Kent he was portraying last week wasn’t our Jonathan Kent, he did such an amazing job. If you want to check out my interview with Mr. Schneider about his return to Smallville, click here to check it out. Tom Welling... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 16 Scion

Well, it’s been ages since I’ve talked about Smallville here on ChicagoNow. Which isn’t a big deal considering there hasn’t been a new episode since March 4th, but I’ve been slacking on reviewing that episode. I’ve been meaning to get around to it, but time just got away from me. Since the episode aired again... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 15 Fortune

This episode of Smallville was hilarious. It had everything I never thought I’d want to see on Smallville: – Drunk Clark Kent– Emil dressed as Elvis– Tess singing in a go-go dress– A lemur in a jacket– Chloe in a very Madonna-esque wedding dress tutu– Oliver Queen dressed as a showgirl, complete with make up,...

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 14 Masquerade

So I re-watched the Masquerade episode of Smallville, and it was pretty intense. There are some interesting things going on with Oliver’s character, and I really hope he can convince Chloe to stick around (until the end of the season at least).Clark is finally deciding to wear a disguise, and hide behind a pair of...

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 12-13 (Collateral/Beacon)

It seems my life is getting in the way of my video reviews. I’m way behind on my Smallville videos, so this week I’m combining the last two episodes. I didn’t rewatch Collateral, so there are probably some thing I failed to mention. I completely forgot to mention part about the Luthor Mansion in Beacon,... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 11 - Icarus (VIDEO)

This was the episode that has left me on the edge of my seat. I was shocked at how amazing this episode was. The fans get the long awaited Lois and Clark engagement, but we also get some surprisingly tragic twists. I thought the 200th episode of Smallville was amazing, the Icarus episode left me...
