    Batman – No Man’s Land

    I enjoyed Batman growing up, reading comics and watching the cartoon show. I had never seen any more than novelized adaptations from the movies, so I was interested when I found this one, hanging out like a sore thumb at the book store. This novel, No Man’s Land, is fairly unique among a lot of […]

    Best Comic Book Battles: Feat Captain America

    It’s time to reach within my memory banks and pick out my favorite Captain America battles. There’s plenty of shield slashing fun to be had. The movies have actually done a good job in showcasing Cap’s impressive fighting skills, particularly Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. I ‘m old enough to remember a time when […]

    THE MAZE RUNNER: A WELCOME ENTRY INTO THE GENRE

    Thanks to the Twilight movie franchise there is now a pervasive cynicism toward Hollywood’s adaptations of young adult novels. Series such as Twilight and The Hunger Games have taught us to expect the kind of melodramatic love triangles that send “tween “girls into hysterics as well as low-brow fantasy and sci-fi elements that even segments […]

    Best Comic Book Battles: Feat. Wolverine

    Time to delve into our favorite Canuck Mutant’s best brawls. He’s had a ton, and more often than not they are all entertaining. Because the thing is Wolverine is not a terribly skilled fighter. Sure, he can hold his own with the best of them but he doesn’t have the training or skill set of […]

    Daredevil on Netflix: Series Review Part 2

    At last I have completed watching the entire series. Part two of my review focuses on episodes 6 to 13. It was a wild ride that I hope to be on again. The question that really lingers in my head is will we get a second season right away or will Marvel focus on exploring […]

    Mad Max: Fury Road: REVIEW

    “As the world fell it was hard to know who was more crazy. Me… Or everyone else.” – Max The first thing I’ll say about this film is what a rush! Brace yourselves for a high octane ride that’s a spectacle for all the senses. It’s been 30 years since the last Mad Max movie […]

    The Hobbit

    For fans of fantasy there probably is no greater book than the Lord of the Rings.  While other authors (Jordan and Martin for example) have since expanded on these words and worlds (Wheel of Time, Game of Thrones, Way of Kings etc…) and taken the realms in different directions, the granddaddy for all of them […]

    Independence Day – classic destruction

    Well its not an Oscar winner or even a contender for its acting or script (but it is a winner for Best Visual Effects, and was also nominated for Best Sound Mixing) and you definitely should not expect Shakespearean dialogue between any of the characters. I’d also tell you not to expect the science to […]

    Avengers vs Avengers 2: Movie Review & Comparison

    The most anticipated sequel of the year finally hit North American theaters on Friday May 1st. It had a massive opening day and a very strong opening weekend. Not quite as strong as the first Avengers movie but it easily dominated the box office this weekend.  After watching Avengers 2 I realized how often I […]

    HERCULES: A GREAT HERCULES FILM REMAINS A MYTH

    Mixtapes. Mariah Carey’s ethnicity. Turducken. There are certain combinations that work so well together that we couldn’t imagine them continuing to exist any other way. Hercules stormed its way into 2014’s summer movie season with a 100 million dollar budget, an all-star cast and an original take on an old and familiar story that the […]

    Top 15 Batman T.A.S. Episodes of all time

    In honor of the newly announced batch of Batman: The Animated Series figures that DC is putting out I figured it would be nice for me to revisit the series. It’s no secret that this incarnation of Batman remains many fans definitive version of the character. It was such a timely and special series that […]
