The Flash: Revenge of the Rogues Review (Article) - 1/22/2015 8:52:58 AM

 Yup you are right.

Flash sees bad guys, zips behind them - BAP!  Captured bad guys and show over in 10 minutes.  Then we can all sit back and enjoy what we really want, young angst from glittery vampire show.

 

Marvel as we know it is done! (Article) - 1/21/2015 8:01:45 AM

I knew that Wolverine wouldn't be gone for long.

NEW Avengers: Age of Ultron Promo Art (Article) - 12/31/2014 8:31:43 AM

 In the comics... Stark has Jarvis, his electronic butler / aide.  Hank Pym built Ultron and progamed him with the goal to make the world better.  Over 35 years there have been a lot of Ultron offspring, they all have daddy issues, and they / it has decided that the best way to make the world better is to get rid of all these pesky humans that keep mucking things up.

The Winter of '84: 2010: The Year We Make Contact (Article) - 12/9/2014 8:08:12 AM

Clark had gone on to write a series of books based on the 2001 universe.  The film uses the 2010 book almost as a page by page roadmap.  So you certainly can't knock where it goes.  It's all Clark.  Hell, he even makes a cameo in it.

The Strain: The Master Review (Article) - 10/7/2014 7:54:34 AM

In the books you have a bit more time to understand Eph.  He overworks and is a control freak, all of which leads to the drinking that splits up his family.  The love of his son is his main anchor in life now.

Trust me. If you don't like him now... once the manure truely hits the fan...

In the book I kept goning back and re-reading a page or two because I didn't get it.  A vamp can't... why isn't he...?  I think they cover it in the book in a way that will be tricky to bring out in the show.

The council will be fun.  That is if season 2 gets anything more than just 3 episodes.  If the ratings fall any quicker, The Strain may quickly turn into a trivia question "What ever happened to..."

Transformers: Age of Extinction Blu-ray Review (Article) - 10/6/2014 8:10:20 AM

As someone who grew up where playing with Transformers would be considered kids stuff, I never got into them.  And with the Bay versions - Hell Yes I love the FX.  The problem is that between the constantly moving camera and the 1 1/2 second cuts, I never can tell who or what is hitting who or what.  WIth the toys, weren't the good guys Red and the bad guy Blue?  Then color code the damn things, or give me some idea of what the 'effing hell is going on.

I don't mind going to see some mindless fun while big robots kick the crap out of each other, but I don't need to the world getting itself taken over in real time.  I thought this thing would never end.  I'm surprised it made any money because theatres could only show it 3 or 4 times per day.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Comic-Con Red Band Trailer (Article) - 7/29/2014 7:07:41 AM

Eye candy... yum!

Mania Review: Lucy (Article) - 7/25/2014 6:56:24 AM

Still suffering Comic Con overload.

But going to go see Lucy once my muscles stop hurting.  Hell, even my hair hurts.

 

Xena Joins Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Article) - 7/23/2014 7:50:23 AM

Lucy Lawless in skin tight leather...ummmmm....

Hasbro's Final Comic Con 2014 Exclusives (Article) - 7/12/2014 7:06:53 AM

Not sure I'd be willing to stand in an hour long line to get the ticket - so I could stand in another hour long line to buy one ROM.

ROM?  Really?  This is the best they can do?
