What is this hubub over the #DickBar? I don’t like Twitter’s iPhone app. I use Twittelator Pro for my iPhone. It rocks the house.

Oh, Skyline. What a bad movie. Battle: LA also bad.If only Lucas would re-release Star Wars in 3D. Then our Sc-Fi failure would be complete!

via TweetDeck

Great writing in Skyline. Such gems as, “They’re not dead. They are just really pissed off!”

via TweetDeck

If Skyline thought of itself like SyFy classics such as “10.5” and “Category 6” then it would be more enjoyable. Still, I must watch…

via TweetDeck

Skyline wants to be a Coverfield/Signs combo. It is neither. It should have been a SyFy movie. Then the cheese would be easier to swallow.

via TweetDeck

I am watching Skyline. I am a sucker for sci-fi, even bad sci-fi. At 18 minutes in, I am about bored to death. I hope this picks up…

A 6” sub is just a bit too small and a 12” too big. An 8” to 9” would be just right.
