Contributor Profile: Jemmy

We all gather to welcome Jemmy to the fold! He will be our point man on new fantasy and science fiction releases, though I'm sure he'll cover some classics while he's at it. He may, even, educate us on topics like manga, of which we know little, yet he knows much. Either way, we are very excited to have him on board!

 

NAME: Jemmy

MY PET PEEVES IN NERD-DOM ARE: Failing to observe the distinction between the nonrestrictive "which" and the restrictive "that"!!!! Aaaaargh!

VAMPIRES, WEREWOLVES, ZOMBIES, ALIENS OR ROBOTS: Zombies, and I plan to join them, not fight them. Give me a pair of razor-sharp teeth and the luck to last long enough before they fall out. Brains…. mmmm….

MY FAVORITE SUPERHERO AND SUPER-VILLAIN ARE: Batman, The Mule.

IF I WERE A SUPERHERO/VILLAIN, MY POWER WOULD BE: The power to eat food and to convert it into energy. Check and check. Ready for world domination!

THE BEST COMIC FILM OF THE PAST 5 YEARS IS: The Dark Knight

THE WORST COMIC FILM OF THE PAST 5 YEARS IS: Far and away Green Lantern, though Daredevil and its spinoffs were pretty bad.

I JUST WATCHED [FILM X] AND IT WAS AWESOME: Okuribito, Twilight Samurai

I JUST WATCHED [FILM Y] AND IT WAS TERRIBLE: Green Lantern! It was so bad it was awesome.

EVERYONE SHOULD SEE [FILM Z] BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE: Porco Rosso

BEST SCIENCE/SPECULATIVE FICTION SHOW OF THE PAST 10 YEARS: The pilot episode and seasons 1 and 2 of Battlestar Galactica

WORSE ENDING--LOST OR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: Never made it to the end of either.

THE OFFICE--BRITISH OR AMERICAN VERSION: Huh? The Office? I don't get out much… Does Dr. Who count?
