So … I Liked the New Star Trek Movie

I might spoil things. I’m not being careful here. First of all, let me tell you, I despised Into Darkness. Almost everything about Into Darkness was wrong. The tone of the movie was problematic and the continuous rising action gave us no chance to consider the characters. They chose to punch instead of solve problems […]

Geeky Woman Role Model: Jesse Peterson (Plus Giveaway!)

I’m a terrible fiction writer. I’m a great science writer, but you probably don’t want to read my terrible Supernatural fanfiction (even though I post it anyway).

Iron Man 2: The Genius-Swoon Effect

I am, in temperament, what I call an optimistic pessimist. Essentially, I’m usually absolutely certain that something is going to suck. I’m especially wary of sequels, except for Ghostbusters 2, I mean Statue of Liberty, come on! Anyway, being me, I had high hopes but little expectation for Iron Man 2. Fortunately for them, I […]
