Kick-Ass 2: Chan’s Movie Review

Let me preface this by saying the last time I saw Kick-Ass was when it was in theaters… which was in April 2010.  I wasn’t 100% on all the details (read: maybe ~5%) but I did remember I enjoyed it greatly, so I wanted to see Kick-Ass 2. The way this movie starts off makes […]

MTV Movie Awards = Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer

Hello lovelies!  While I don’t have cable and even when I did rarely watched MTV, one good point of tonight’s MTV Movie Awards was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer!  It’s definitely phenomenal, but I was a little disappointed by the scenes they showed. Hopefully we’ll see more since we have until November 22nd until […]

Damsel Chan on CNET.com!

My fiancé and I were interviewed by CNET.com while waiting to turn in our Adventure Time quest at the Cartoon Network booth during San Diego Comic-Con 2012 (I ended up turning mine in earlier than he did, which is why I’m wearing my medal).  Here’s a screenshot! Yay!  Thanks, CNET.com!  Sorry for the delayed post. […]

Ruby Sparks: Chan’s Movie Review

Never hearing of this movie before, I received an email that was an invite to a screening down the street from me.  I read the synopsis – “An author writes a girl in a story and she becomes real” – and decided from that alone that it was cute.  Being on a Tuesday night and […]

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Book): Chan’s Review

Since the movie comes out March 23rd (SQUEE), I figured it would be appropriate to do a series of reviews based on The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.  Granted you can read this first book in the series and wash your hands of the rest but if you’re like me, you gotta finish what […]

John Carter: Chan’s Review

The Disney-produced John Carter, based on “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs written in 1917 (yowza), did not fare as well as expected in the box office this weekend ($30.6 mil domestically on a $250 mil budget) and seems to be getting mediocre (at best) reviews from a lot of other places, but […]

Alcatraz (TV): Chan’s Review

Another widely anticipated show that was mentioned at SDCC 2011 and FINALLY came to our TVs in 2012 was Alcatraz, starring Jorge Garcia (LOST), Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy), and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, The Hunt for Red October).  The premise of the show centers around the last of the prisoners of Alcatraz and how […]

San Diego: North of the Airport?

As Comic-Con 2012 news becomes apparent – membership IDs, guests, masquerade, etc. – we all start to think about San Diego and its magical convention in just a few (5?) months.  The famed convention center, the plethora of hotels around it, and of course the Gaslamp District. But what else does San Diego have? In […]

American Horror Story (TV): Chan’s Review

With the season finale wrapping up and a brand new story with brand new characters being announced the day after for next season, American Horror Story certainly has quite the hold into many Americans’ Wednesday nights – myself included. While I did not watch the first few shows as they aired, I did get to […]

30 Minutes or Less – Movie Review

I was lucky enough to get into a public screening of this movie last Thursday, and would have paid full price to see it regardless.  30 Minutes or Less is a movie centered around 4 primary characters.  Nick (Jesse Eisenberg; The Social Network, Zombieland), the late 20s slacker who delivers pizzas and lives with best […]
