    My First Audio Book Narration... Available Now!

    That's right!  Two long years in the making... more than 35 different characters with unique voices, over 14 hours of rip-roaring science fiction... all available now on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon.

    I really feel this is a fantastic novel, and I'm proud to be associated with it.  The story centers around our first contact with an alien species from beyond the stars... but the twist is that it is told from THEIR perspective!  An alien race, farther down the evolutionary timeline that homo sapiens, trying to understand our culture in all its facets.  This is a funny, action-packed, insightful, and ultimately moving tale that I thoroughly enjoyed.  And I'm quite proud of my work in bringing it to audio life.

    I hope you have a chance to check it out and let me know what you think, either here, or as a review on Audible.com or iTunes.

    If you need further convincing, here is a video I did about it:

    Godzilla attacks!

    Here is my rather downhearted review of Godzilla, which had sparked a firestorm of feedback.  Now that the movie is out, do you agree with me?

    The 8th Annual Summer Wager!

    Did you get your wager down?

    Since 2007, I've been participating in the annual Summer Wager - first on TRS, and now with the fine fellows at /Film.  This is the contest in which we attempt to predict, in order, the top 10 grossing films of the summer blockbuster season.  After my triumphant win last year, the pressure is on to retain my title.  I sat down with Peter Sciretta and Germain Lussier to hash out our lists, and to talk a little smack.  You can watch us here, and get a full rules explaination for the wager, if you'd like to play along.

    My list:

    1. Transformers 4
    2. Amazing Spider-Man 2
    3. How to train your Dragon 2
    4. Xmen Days of Future Past
    5. 22 Jump Street
    6. Godzilla
    7. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    8. Edge of Tomorrow
    9. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    10. Maleficent

    Dark Horses:

    • Guardians of the Galaxy
    • Jupiter Ascending
    • Planes: Fire and Rescue

    And I've also got my take on the new Amazing Spider-Man #1 comic book hitting newstands this week from Marvel Comics:

    If you're looking for a spoiler-filled discussion about Amazing Spider-Man 2, I also joined the /Filmcast this week to jaw even more about it.  Check that out here.

    Cannata Stop Gushing about The Winter Soldier

    You can hear me shout from the rooftops about how great Captain America: The Winter Soldier is (and how even more disappointing it makes Man of Steel to me) in no fewer than THREE places this week.

    I had a blast hanging out with the comic book experts at iFanboy for their special episode about the film.  You can listen to that here.

    I stopped in to my friends at the /Filmcast to praise the movie on their show here.

    And I recorded my own fresh impressions, moments after getting home from seeing it in my NLB Mini on the movie here:

    Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!!  Make Mine Marvel!
