    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.

    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 […]

    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.

    Attack on Titan Live Action Film!

    While I think I mentioned in my previous post on the top 5 Anime on Netflix that they were evaluating a live action version of Attack on Titan, I didn’t expect to see the advertisement for it already!  Now this could be a complete mishmash of different video’s and some very clever CGI and photoshop, […]

    Pulp Comic Characters: Remembering The Forgotten Icons

    It’s 2015 and names like Batman and Spider-man are as well known as Homer Simpson or Santa Claus. The names that are becoming harder and harder to remember are those of the pulpy characters that helped shaped these modern day superheroes.  i’m not that old, but it seems that unless you’re over the age of […]

    LUCY: A FILM THAT FALLS SHORT

    As a young man in my early twenties, I spent many nights out exploring the city’s hot spots in search of a woman that could be the next love of my life. I would often glance across a bar or stare across a crowded room and spot bright, attractive and complicated women who at the […]

    The Fifth Element (1997)

    1997 was an amazing year for SciFi flicks with some of the most classic and iconic films and franchises either starting or continuing.  I mean we had Starship Troopers (based on the book by Robert Heinlein), Men in Black (with the awesome Will Smith), Event Horizon, Star Trek: First Contact & for the more cerebral Contact (based on book by Carl Sagan) and Gattaca.  Each of these films deserve a […]

    Joss Whedon Vs. Phil Coulson

    This morning I read a recent Q&A Joss Whedon @josswhedon did with Dana Schwartz over at mental floss and I have to say some of his answers really raised my eye brows here and there. DS: People don’t really stay dead in Marvel movies. I think we’ve had to deal with Loki dying four, five, […]
