How does the rating system work?


A+ (4 stars) = Recommended. Immaculate, excellent, a must-see.

Movies of this caliber are rare, being masterfully done and as close as is possible to "flawless."



A- = Recommended.

A great, well-done movie that you should definitely see. Maybe it wasn't genre-redefining material. Maybe it wasn't oscar-winning, but it was superb nonetheless.



B+ (3 1/2 stars) = Recommended.

Aside from a few flaws, it's pretty good and worth seeing.



B- (3 stars) = Decent.

Maybe it'll float your boat and maybe it won't. Just depends on your taste.



C+ (2 1/2 stars) = Decent.

Average with a few good attributes. You won't hate it, but don't expect it to be particularly memorable.



C- (2 stars) = Hopelessly average.

No real redeeming qualities about it. An almost - if not complete - waste of time.



D+ (1 1/2 stars) = Viewer beware!

Pretty bad and certainly less than average. Will leave a bad taste in your mouth when you leave the theatre.



D- (1 star) = Viewer beware!

Pretty bad and then some! You've seen worse movies, but not that many.



F (0 stars) = Awful, a complete flop, a failure in it's genre and every other area as well.

A torturous and horrible film that is sure to make you regret seeing it. Viewer beware!!! A movie with this rating is almost guaranteed to rape your soul!

When Jesus Turns Down the Glory: 10 Worst Ever Christian Songs

It’s a sad testimony when even the creator of a thing realizes that the product isn’t what it was intended to be. Well, actually it’s a good thing. It just doesn’t happen often enough. The Christian music industry is, shall we say, not up to par with where its admirers (and even creators and ardent well-wishers) would hope it would be. And when even the average believer realizes that their music is not market-cornering stuff, all should know that there is a problem.

Now not all Christian music sucks (you might even find a few rock songs from artists like Petra on Joe Holman’s ipod that he still sometimes listens to and enjoys), but what makes the stuff that does suck suck is that what sucks sucks for a number of different reasons. We begin the countdown going from best of the worst to absolute worst...

The Top 5 Most Powerful Beings in Sci-fi (Part I of II)

It’s a subject that is rarely tackled in any form outside of random questions on a message board, but here we will devote a sensible examination of it. Who – what – is the most powerful being anywhere in every realm of sci-fi or fantasy ever dreamt up by a finite human being? I’ve been contemplating this subject since I was 8 years old. At 39, it hasn’t left my mind. That means several things; (1) I’m a fucking geek. (2) I’ve invested enough of my life pondering this for it to qualify as an obsession.

As with all “Most” anything lists, we are faced with several problems, one of them being limited source material. A couple of these only made one or two brief appearances somewhere and that is all we have to go by. But sometimes, those situations let our imaginations go into overdrive and give us even more creative fun. The mystery tends to add to the experience of contemplation.

The Top 5 Most Powerful Beings in Sci-fi (Part II of II)

#1) The Douwds – From Star Trek The Next Generation

Claim to fame: This Douwd went from pacifist to mass murderer of 50 billion in a single moment of anger. He appears to hold the record for most murders in all of sci-fi.
Abilities: Just about unlimited.
Nature: True immortals.

Our winner, debatably edging out number #2, is a mysterious race of beings called the Douwds. We only get to meet one of their kind in a single episode (#51, season 3 - see the condensed version here) called “The Survivors.” It was one of the very best of any season. What little we know of this illusive race “of disguises and false surroundings” only adds to our fascination with them.

When the Enterprise gets an urgent distress call from a federation colony on Delta Rana IV about an attacking alien warship, they head over as fast as they can, but they are days away. By the time they arrive, it is too late. All are dead and the planet has been literally leveled…with the sole exception of one house and the small pa…
