“Man of Steel” comes back swinging

By ANDREW LINK (digitalBURG) – To the rather large chunk of people who are going to see “Man of Steel” regardless of what I say: Yes, the 3D is worth the few extra bucks. No, there is nothing after the credits. Becoming something that isn’t the hero portrayed in issue number one of his comic… Read more »

Game of Thrones closes season three

By ANDY LYONS (digitalBURG) – The finale of season three of “Game of Thrones” did exactly what I expected it to: set up season four. The season was based on the first half of the third book in George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, “A Storm of Swords.” The episode really… Read more »

‘The Internship’ review

By ANDREW LINK (digitalBURG) – Welcome to another movie starring Owen Wilson as Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as Vince Vaughn. “The Internship” is written by Vaughn, presumably to ensure he and Wilson weren’t in any way pushed to do something different than they’re used to. The movie is directed by Sean Levy, who has… Read more »

Game of Thrones: Finale draws near

By ANDY LYONS (digitalBURG) – “Game of Thrones” is known to kill main characters as they are on the rise.

“The Hangover Part III”

By ANDREW LINK (digitalBURG) — If you want a quick answer to, “Should I see ‘The Hangover Part III?’” the answer is no. When I heard about “Hangover Part III,” I thought, “Let me guess – Alan drugs everyone, Doug goes missing, and just as Phil calls Doug’s wife to come clean, Stu has an… Read more »

“Hangover Part III”

By JOSHUA LEONARD (digitalBURG) – I went to the pre-screening of “The Hangover Part III,” and the movie was a decent conclusion to a trilogy that should have only been one film. To me, “The Hangover” films are just a one-trick pony. In every film, you can expect Doug either missing or kidnapped, Alan being… Read more »

“Star Trek Into Darkness”

By JOSHUA LEONARD (digitalBURG) – “Star Trek Into Darkness” was by far the best “Star Trek” film ever made, and I absolutely cannot wait to go watch it again. This is a must-see movie. “Star Trek Into Darkness” makes for a darker, more evil feel as Benedict Cumberbatch takes off his “Sherlock” hat and puts… Read more »

Game of Thrones picks up speed in season 3

By ANDY LYONS (digitalBURG) – The third-to-last episode of the season for the show “Game of Thrones” called “Second Sons,” focused mainly on three storylines: Daenerys in Yunkai, Gendry’s arrival at Stannis Baratheon’s home of Dragonstone, and Tyrion’s marriage to Sansa Stark. All three come together well in what was the best episode of season… Read more »

TV: “Doctor Who” and The Rings of Akhaten

By Josh Leonard (digitalBURG) – The Doctor takes his new companion Clara to a place audiences have never seen – The Rings of Akhaten. This episode was a very sci-fi-based episode. Yes, I know, “Doctor Who” is a science fiction show, but lately the Doctor has just been traveling to different parts of Earth’s time… Read more »
