Mission Statement – Books, Movies, and TV

This is the first part of the Mission Statement of this blog. This is what you can expect in the coming year and more. And it’s a pretty geeky Mission Statement!

When I started this blog, I wanted to focus on book reviews and my writing. So, I’d like to reiterate that book reviews are a major feature of this blog. However, that’s going to expand to movies and TV. And not just any movies and TV, but science fiction, fantasy, and superhero movies and TV!

Movies

I’m going to be doing a few challenges, as well as following very specific themes when reviewing movies. Here’s what you can expect to see:

  • Marvel and DC superhero movies
  • Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit
  • Star Wars
  • Star Trek (will be done along with the TV series in chronological order)
  • James Bond movies
  • Harry Potter
  • Transformers movies
  • Terminator movies
  • Alien movies
  • Jurassic Park movies
  • Robin Williams movies (my favourite actor, so I should do this)
  • And pretty much any science fiction or fantasy movie I can get my hands on.

Television Series

There are so many TV series I want to watch, and I will do reviews episode by episode. They will be brief, though. Don’t expect me to go into as much detail as I do with books.

  • All Star Trek TV series in chronological order
  • Battlestar Galactica (all series)
  • Doctor Who
  • Firefly
  • Xena
  • Hercules
  • Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis
  • Transformers
  • The Shannara Chronicles
  • The upcoming series based on Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy
  • Game of Thrones
  • Possibilities: The X-Files, Space: Above and Beyond, Earth 2

That’s a lot to watch, isn’t it? There may be more, it just depends on what I find. What are you looking forward to seeing? Any I missed that you think I should watch? Let me know in the comments.

The Marvel and DC Movie Challenge

With all the comic book hero movies coming out, I thought I’d add a new challenge. I’d like to watch every Marvel and DC Comics movie ever made. I don’t mean any TV movies or direct to video movies. Only theatrical ones.

I have some favourites. I loved the first couple of Superman movies with Christopher Reeve. I also really liked Michael Keaton’s version of Batman. The first couple of X-Men movies were pretty good, too.

Growing up, I was always a DC superhero fan. I loved Superman and Batman, but I was also interested in others that joined the Justice League. But then, I also liked Marvel’s Spiderman, and watched the old cartoon a lot. I’ll be interested in seeing if I like Marvel or DC movies better. I should keep score.

What’s your favourite and least favourite superhero movie?
