Watson’s Review of “Skyfall”
In a breathtaking, action-drenched prologue that boosts the heart rate and then brings it to a sudden, chilling halt, James Bond adventure “Skyfall” triumphantly vanquishes the bitter aftertaste left behind by the enduring M16 agent’s previous escapade, the chronically arse-numbing “Quantum of Solace,” and boldly promises that great things are to come. It’s an audaciously… Continue reading Watson’s Review of “Skyfall”

Watson’s Review of ‘Prometheus’
Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” intrigues with its opening scene and sustains this right up until the end credits, perhaps even after this point: hours after seeing the film, I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it. A semi-prequel to Scott’s science-fiction horror masterpiece “Alien,” it begins rather appropriately with the silent introduction of an extraterrestrial… Continue reading Watson’s Review of ‘Prometheus’
Watson’s Review of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’
“Mirror mirror on the wall,” commands the villainous Queen Ravenna, as played - or rather performed - by South African Oscar-winner Charlize Theron in fantasy action picture “Snow White and the Huntsman.” “Who is fairest of them all?” she questions her magic mirror with sturdy self-assurance. But, much to the evil queen’s tumultuous horror, the… Continue reading Watson’s Review of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’
Watson’s Review of ‘Men in Black III’
Not since Marty McFly sent streaks of fire hurtling through the streets of 1955 Hill Valley has a method of time travel been so exciting. In “Men in Black III,” alien-hunting MiB Agent J (Will Smith, of course) time jumps: he climbs to the 61st floor of the Chrysler Building, steps out to the edge… Continue reading Watson’s Review of ‘Men in Black III’
Watson Reviews “Dark Shadows”
Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” is a Frankenstein’s Monster of a movie - or should that be a Frankenweenie? Like Mary Shelley’s undead creature, Burton’s gothic horror-comedy is constructed from separate bits and bobs dug up from hither and thither and hurriedly stitched together without the slightest care for sightliness or collectivity. The result is indeed… Continue reading Watson Reviews “Dark Shadows”

If you think this image of Ron Paul surrounded by a sky of flying Hippos is a little fucking nuts, you should read his platforms.

Academy Awards 2012 Thoughts and Predictions
While the Academy Awards are certainly more prestigious than their Golden Globes counterparts, they are nonetheless much more boring. I will be hosting Quizzo at Coyle's Cafe in Roxborough tonight, and therefore will be unable to post or tweet during the ceremony (for the most part). However, I still thought it would be appropriate to… Continue reading Academy Awards 2012 Thoughts and Predictions
SuperDPS 2012 Grammy Predictions (and Results)
As I try to do for every major awards show, letting a few slip through my fingers, I thought I'd make my educated guesses at who might come out with some big wins. After the passing of Whitney Houston the day prior to the Grammys, I'd imagine she will have a major underlying (and overlying)… Continue reading SuperDPS 2012 Grammy Predictions (and Results)
The Top 10 Philly Comedians of 2011
Forgive my enthusiasm for being retrospective at the start of a New Year, but I've done a lot more this year than I actually realized. Slacking a lot more too, I imagine. This site was always supposed to be about being funny, or at least entertaining, and the most fun and entertaining events I've been… Continue reading The Top 10 Philly Comedians of 2011

Happy New Year 2012 from SuperDPS.com!
It's the end of another year. Another year of success, failures, loss, love, happiness and sadness. Another year of jealousy and morbid self-satisfaction. I can't imagine 2012 will be any different where these things are concerned, but I can only hold out hope that the people who were so high on life last year come… Continue reading Happy New Year 2012 from SuperDPS.com!
Must See in 2012 (of the Moment)
from FarDarrigTrailers. This trailer for the 2012 film Chronicle surfaced on the Internets this week, and I am stoked. This film looks incredible. The description of "three boys gain super powers and eventually discover the dark side," seems kind of played out, but the effects, the cinematography, everything looks pretty fucking spot-on. I'll be shocked… Continue reading Must See in 2012 (of the Moment)
The SuperDPS Guide to Conspiracy Theories
From the beginning of time, the mentally unstable have turned healthy skepticism and questioning authority into a madhouse of unpredictable, unprovable, and unimaginably nonsensical theories. The eternal unanswerable question is "Why?" Why would the government fake a moon landing, house alien life forms, cover up the paranormal, or orchestrate a terrorist attack? The reason we… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Conspiracy Theories
Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?
Trump has been a media icon for decades. And while I have to give him props for graduating from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, and for having the wherewithal to effectively turn the company his father worked tirelessly to create into his own person piggy bank, I somehow doubt his honesty and credibility.… Continue reading Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?
Climate Change Clusterfuck
So it turns out we were wrong again. Another era of being caught up in sensationalism and "end of the world" hysteria has come upon us. But where do we stand now? Has everything that we've come to believe about a supposed Global Warming been complete horse shit? The short answer is "yes," with an… Continue reading Climate Change Clusterfuck
