Mr. Smith’s Watch is Just Beginning.

April 26, 2013


Episode 24 “And Now His Watch is Ended” I live for the fall. You remember the fall. It’s that time of year when you can run around saying “Winter is coming.” and you don’t seem like a total dork. People just say, “Yup. It’s just around the corner.” and go on with their lives. Any […]

It’s No Punishment for Mr. Smith to Watch GAME OF THRONES

April 23, 2013


Episode 23 “Walk of Punishment” This week we open with a funeral. One of those viking style shin-digs where the family stands on a dock and lights a boat on fire and sends it on its final journey. That sort of thing makes me wonder if there is a village downstream that has the unfortunate job of […]

Episode 22 “Dark Wings, Dark Words” This episode of Game of Thrones reminded me of why I watch this show in the first place. I mean, there are lots of reasons, like boobs, blood, villains that live, heroes that die, and did I mention boobs and blood? Those are all respectable reasons to enjoy this […]

GAME OF THRONES – All Men Must Serve

April 9, 2013


Episode 21 “Valar Dohaeris” Geeze, it’s good to be back. How long did we have to wait for this? Seems like an age. This episode didn’t disappoint at all. We open with Sam, who is running away. From what, I have no idea, but he’s frantically running through what the people north of the wall […]

Mr. Smith Recommends: Stuff for Your GAME OF THRONES Hall

March 30, 2013


As you know, the new season of Game of Thrones is upon us, and if you’re like me, you’re unfurling your sigil and letting your geek flag fly… Clever little internet memes aren’t the only way to let the geek out. There are TONS of things out there with which you can adorn your walls, […]

Ready for a New Game? Mr. Smith Is…

March 30, 2013


Before Season Three After an unfortunate hiatus to do this and that, and sometimes nothing at all, I humbly return to you, my fellow fans of Game of Thrones. I need to do a little catch up, so I’m going to briefly sum up seasons one and two. For those who are coming into the […]

Mr. Smith Tries to Figure Out PROMETHEUS

June 9, 2012


After months and months of seemingly endless hype for Ridley Scott’s newest opus, I FINALLY got to see Prometheus, the prequel to the Alien franchise. I saw in on an IMAX screen, in 3D, which is the way to go with this one I think. Needless to say, there will be spoilers galore. So don’t […]

Mr. Smythe Spells Out Gaime of Throans

April 18, 2012


Episode 2.3 “What is Dead May Never Die” [photos: Helen Sloan/HBO] Apparently, for the last couple of weeks, I’ve had some issues with spelling, specifically, the spelling of GRRM’s character’s names in Game of Thrones. Thank you’s go to my friend that commented, detailing each instance with almost Rain Man-like accuracy. I happen to know […]

GAME OF THRONES: It’s Not Just About the Naughty Parts

April 11, 2012


Episode 2.2 “The Night Lands” [photos: Helen Sloan/HBO] Good news everyone! GoT has been renewed for a third season! Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. Things are confusing enough as it is without adding eight thousand more characters and a hundred fifty new plot lines that will never be resolved in any kind of […]

GAME OF THRONES: Not Exactly A Clash of Kings

April 4, 2012


Episode 2.1 “The North Remembers” Finally, the second installment of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire comes to HBO. But it’s not called A Clash of Kings. It’s still called Game of Thrones. I don’t know why. That was the first book. This is the second. I could probably find out why, […]

Mr. Smith Says IMMORTALS Has Life

November 11, 2011


Directed by Tarsem Singh (The Fall – 2006, and The Cell – 2000), and written by Charley Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides, Immortals cracks open another bit of the Greek mythos where gods are golden and the peasant hero rises to eternal glory. Oh my, I didn’t spoil it for you, did I? Don’t worry. I […]

By the twitching of my thumbs, something winter this way comes….

November 10, 2011


Winter is still coming, and with winter, the night. The night is dark, and full of terrors. It has been a long time, friends, since I have immersed myself into this fantastical world of sex, political intrigue,  betrayal, and murder. As the tide of “Game of Thrones” returns for season two, I can feel the icy water […]

Mr. Smith vs. Cowboys and Aliens

August 1, 2011


Spoilers abound. Trust me. I’m doing you a favor. [all photos: Cowboys and Aliens official site] Cowboys & Aliens is Jon Favreau’s latest non-Iron Man offering (other non-Iron Man offerings include wonderful films, such as Elf, which was a lot of fun, and Zathura: A Space Adventure, which was just space Jumanji). This is another in […]

Mr. Smith, Lazy Reader, Dances with Dragons

July 21, 2011


I love audio books. Oh my. How I do love them. Oh so very much. I got hooked on them when I was making near-weekly trips across Kansas to visit my parents while I was in college. Steven King books were my favorite at the time, but thankfully, I’ve branched out. Not much, because I […]
