FOX CANCELS ALMOST HUMAN (Article) - 4/30/2014 9:35:20 AM

Shocking.  Fans get Firefly'd again.  I really liked this show, even with the episodes being shown out of order.

At the current level of everything Marvel that is being put out, I will devour these as fast as they are released.

Justice League Movie Announced (Article) - 4/28/2014 3:02:01 PM

Marvel continues to curb stomp DC at the box office, and now DC/Warners suddenly feels the pressure and will rush to compete.  I smell an unfinished, unrefined product heading our way.

If they were smart, they'd do as kinetoscope suggested, and tie in Arrow and Flash from the TV shows to bring in a wider, more developed audience.  Sort of a "reverse MAoS" situation.  Stephen Amell has proven himself to be a leading man, and Grant Gustin seems to have sufficient charisma to aquit himself on the big screen.  I don't think it'd do anything but help the DC in their efforts to play catch-up to Marvel.

 

Arrow: Seeing Red Review (Article) - 4/25/2014 10:03:32 AM

B/B-.  Aside from the last 5 minutes and Moira's death (which, I agree, really ratchets up the genuine, meaningful drama and emotion in the show, and should serve to catalyze Oliver), the rest of the episode was blah.  We spent most of it watching Thea have these emotional canniption fits that were beyond annoying.  The balance of the episode was Roy acting like a psychopath with Oliver stuttering around with no thought as to what to do.  I felt like it was 50 minutes of filler junk just to lead us into the last five minutes of WHAT-THE-HELL-JUST-HAPPENED.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Only Light in the Darkness REVIEW (Article) - 4/24/2014 9:35:21 AM

Overall, I liked the episode (B ), and the review is solid.

One mistake, Tim:  I think you misheard what Koenig said when he was talking to Agent Triplett:  He said that if HE were related to a Howling Commando, he'd have it tattoo'd on his chest.  This infers that Koenig is NOT related to the Eric Koenig of the comics Howling Commandos, but it also infers that Triplett is the grandson of Gabe Jones.

Just had to be persnickety and correct that one point... cuz I'm geek like that.  Sorry.  :D

 

 

Batman: Arkham Origins -- Cold, Cold Heart Launch Trailer (Article) - 4/22/2014 2:50:55 PM

Not really excited about this.  I don't like Batman in a power suit.  He's Batman... not Iron Man.  I'm also not thrilled about him having tech in this prequel time period that he doesn't have in the later games.

 

Arrow: The Man Under the Hood Review (Article) - 4/17/2014 11:36:43 AM

A few thoughts on the episode:  SPOILERS BELOW

...

...

...

Yeah, the whole "there's actually a cure for Mirakuru" smacked seriously of the writers going, "wait... ummm... we've made Deathstroke invincible, so how do we get Oliver to finally beat him?"  While I like a lot of the things that they're doing, I feel like the writing and plotting of the show has gotten lazy or way ahead of themselves in the last few weeks.

Thea needs to die now.  She is offically the last character left on the show who exists simply to be whiny, CW teen angst fodder.  The writers clearly have no idea what to do with her, so they have just put her into this huge personal drama-crisis of hating who her dad really is.  She's just a walking temper-tantrum right now, and it distracts from the rest of the show.

I'm really glad that they tied in more of Isabella Rochev's origin/background from the comics.  That was a nice touch, and it also added substantially to her crazy-factor.  We now have more understanding of why she is such a nut-job with a hate-on for the Queen family.  "Shallow, greedy CEO" was a poor stereotype, but this more personal touch really takes her character up a notch, IMHO.

Diggle continues to be two-dimensional to me, and a really poor soldier.  Speaking as an infantry vet, NO SOLDIER, I don't care how Delta Force he is, dumps his pistol magazine at the guy in body armor, aiming entirely for the chest, while running towards him.  Factor in that Diggle knows that Deathstroke is super-strong, heals fast, etc., and Diggle's part in the fighting last night was just stupid.

Laurel SUDDENLY cluing into who Oliver and Sara are was done too suddenly and too conveniently for my tastes, but then again, a woman who is supposed to be that bright should've figured it out a bit sooner.  But I'll forgive that, because the show needed time to grow out of CW soap opera/Smallville nonsense and become the great show it is now.  Both my wife and I continue to wonder if she will eventually take over as Black Canary somehow.

WonderCon 2014: Warner Archive Collection Panels (Article) - 4/15/2014 6:29:59 PM

I'd like to know what genius scheduled it all the same weekend as Easter.  Makes it really hard for people to get away from their families and attend.  Or... perhaps that was the plan to keep attendance from getting out of hand?
