Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman (Article) - 12/5/2013 1:54:57 AM

 Gina Carano was the only choice for the role. But since Snyder only uses women as props in his movies, he went with a cardboard cutout. 

Time to change the title to Sucker Punch 2: Electric Gigliloo.

Mania Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Article) - 11/24/2013 12:54:57 PM

 If the first movie had been done by this director in the first place, this franchise would be making LOTR money right now. The first movie outright sucked, due to the direction. Everything was a closeup shot from underneath the actor's chin, and the action scenes were unwatchable due to the shaky cam. 

Compare that to this second movie where you get to see the world in which these people live in, and the oppression in which they live under. It was done subtly without having to beat the audience over the head with it. Also, one of the things coming through in this movie was that the main character doesn't want to be a symbol for anything. She just wants to live her life with her head down so she doesn't attract any trouble. This is where we get the notion that both sides are using her as a symbol to push their own ideas forward, whether she wants to be a part of it or not.

So stop with the dumbass "oh, it's Twilight" bullshit comments. Especially if you haven't even seen either Twilight or this series. And no, it's not Battle Royal either, so don't get your panties in a bunch about that too. If you don't want to see it, no problem.I hear Ahnuld and his saggy tits are making another movie for you to suckle on yet another hackneyed geriaction movie. 

The Walking Dead: Internment Review (Article) - 11/12/2013 2:37:57 PM

 According to the show runners, it's one and a half years after the whole thing started. There are new zombies because people outside the prison are dying of this flu as well (hence why some of the zombies have blood streaked from their eyes and mouth) and coming back. Plus you had the whole city of Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs getting changed over. Survivors also starve to death, and come back as well. 

Plus it takes a body more than a few years to decompose fully to where it's not going to be able to move around due to lack of tissue. 

Burning the bodies while they're still walking would set the surrounding woods on fire, plus it looks like they're getting low on gas too. The best thing to have done would have been to reenforce the outer fence by welding metal pipes or beams to the inner fence (ie. triangulation) and creating a stronger fence altogether. This then gives you a walkway above the walkers from which you could just drop heavy items on their heads, draw it back up with a chain, and drop it again. 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Girl in the Flower Dress Review (Article) - 10/24/2013 9:31:15 PM

  This series has been boring so far. Sky is easily the worst character I've ever seen Whedon produce, and I keep hoping she gets sucked out of the plane's toilet at 30,000 feet. The only likable characters so far are Fitz and Simmons, so you know they'll be killed off by Whedon at some point. Ming Na's character and Abercrombie Secret Agent Jr. are almost as horrible as Sky, but somehow they keep their cliched characters slightly more interesting than her. Then we come to Coulson...loved him in the movies, but the 'mystery' surrounding him on the show doesn't work well, because the weekly plots are just so damned boring.

Thank Buddha, that Grimm starts this week.

31 Days of Horror Movies: Bubba Ho-Tep (Article) - 10/2/2013 11:43:38 PM

 Last I heard, the prequel was supposed to be called "Bubba Nosferatu" with Ron Perlman taking over for Bruce. That came straight from Bruce's mouth last year.

The Pull List: 8/28/13 (Article) - 8/28/2013 7:19:58 PM

 I was reading the new TMNT up until 3 months ago. It started promising, but then the story really never seemed to go anywhere. Kind of like a prolonged episode of Dragonball Z where the two combatants talk at each other for 5 episodes, fight for 3 seconds, resolve nothing, wash, rinse, repeat. So I dropped it.

Affleck is Batman (Article) - 8/26/2013 7:56:13 PM

 After Cranston got cast as Luthor, I've started hearing rumors that WB is looking at Timberlake as Robin. Just when I thought this shit couldn't be more comical! 

The Pull List: 8/21/13 (Article) - 8/21/2013 9:16:12 AM

 I really hope the new team on Batman Beyond doesn't screw it up. It's the only DC book that has been consistently good since the whole 52 debacle started.

Mania Review: Elysium (Article) - 8/10/2013 1:34:14 PM

 Saw it yesterday. It was good, but not great. A few more passes through the editing room cutting it down to 90 minutes from 109 minutes would have helped immensely with the pacing of the story. Not to mention all the fucking shaky cam in every scene, even scenes of people talking. Seriously, steadicam was invented for a reason. It was invented so people could actually see what the hell was being filmed without having to try guessing at what that blur was that crossed in front of the camera. 

Want to see an action movie that knows how to film action scenes well? See Red 2. Not only was it fun, but it was visually coherent. 

Comic Con vs. Star Wars Celebration (Article) - 8/1/2013 3:04:30 PM

 Went to SDCC this year (since I now live in SD), and it was tamer than in years past. All of Rob's bitc...err, 'complaining' about SDCC sounds more like sour grapes than anything else. My only regret was wasting time in line to try to get into the 20th Century Fox X-Men movie panel. The Hunger Games retards (and I say that lovingly) had camped out the previous night, and then didn't leave after their panel. 

I got everything I wanted, except my Dredd tshirt. BUT the owner of the company was nice enough to give me his card and told me to shoot him an email. He wasn't expecting the demand of the shirt (which sold out on Fri.) and was going to print more up. I also met Diedrich Bader on the convention floor, and told him how much I enjoyed his voice work on Batman Brave and the Bold. I also bumped into Will Sasso, Evangeline Lily, and Steven Moffat all on the convention floor. I wouldn't have seen that at SWC. Plus, if you're in Germany, who in the hell wants to be trapped in a convention center anyway?

Star Wars was a great movie.....30 years ago. Now it's just a tired franchise that embarasses itself, and I say this as a fan. I also laugh that next year's SWC is in Anaheim, right at the time Wondercon used to be there. Why? Because Wondercon is moving back to San Francisco where it belongs and prospers. Not across the street from Disneyland.
