PLANET OF THE APES TV Series Soundtrack Review (Article) - 1/31/2015 11:33:23 AM

I haven't seen this since I was a kid. I don't remember much about the show, mainly sceens from different episodes, like when one ape is talking to another about brainwashing and thinks it means taking the brain out of a skull and washing it in a stream, or when a human was rediscovering the ability of flight by designing a primitive hang glider. I also remember the animated series that was also on around the same time and I believe stared the voices of the actors from the TV show. I don't know if I will buy this, but I wouldn't mind watcing it and take a stroll down memory lane and see how it plays out in front of my now adult eyes.

Terminator Genisys - Big Game Spot (Article) - 1/30/2015 8:41:29 AM

Retcons are nothing new, and are a frequent staple of comics. Marvel is undergoing one as we speak. Many times they are necessary because a product become so bogged down with back stories that an author can't do anything without somebody crying "That's not cannon!" or "You can't do that because inepisode 185 they did ..." Star trek had become a lumbering beast and whether or you like the reboot or not it was necessary. The X-men had massively jumped the shark and needed to be put back on the rails. So did Terminator. One and Two were awesome, but everything after that was, in my opinion, crap. Hopefully this movie will be entertaining and correct what went wrong in three and four.

I agree VT. I to am holding out hope that this might break the recent trend and actually be a good movie.

LEGO Reveals Avengers The SHIELD Helicarrier (Article) - 1/29/2015 4:25:51 PM

Seriously it is lego for God's sake. for $400 it should be made out of gold.

 

Arrow: Left Behind review (Article) - 1/24/2015 11:56:57 AM

So now that I have seen the episode the Brick may or may not have superpowers he took a bullet to the sholder and to the head and mearly received a flesh wound. I am courious how Oliver was "brought back from the dead." I had been expecting someone to take him for a dip in a Lazarus Pit. However it looks as if Tatsu may have some funky mojo of her own that needs explaining. Again I do not have a problem with Laurel being able to kick ass at this point, as previously mentioned she had been taught self-defense by her father and has been learning new stuff from Wildcat. I do feel as if they are draging out the Ray Palmer Atom thing a little long. I would at least like to see him shrinksomething at this point.

Arrow: Left Behind review (Article) - 1/23/2015 8:30:27 AM

I haven't seen the episode yet, but it was establised early in season one that her father did teach her self defense. While true she has been kidnapped alot, but there have been a few break in attempts that she has kicked butt in.

First Look: DAREDEVIL #15.1 (Article) - 1/22/2015 5:45:12 AM

I can't attest to to looking at it. However with his radar sense he would know where the monitor is. However, if you look at his desk you can't see a keyboard. I presume that he is using voice recognition software like Dragon Speaking Naturally or some such.

Star Wars Rebels: Idiot's Array Review (Article) - 1/21/2015 10:46:48 AM

It's is true that Lando made them look like, well like idiots, but that was in the name of the episode. I chose to look at it mre along the lines that they are still a capable crew who are simply outclassed by Lando. And that is how it should be, Lando is the ultimate con man able to think several moves ahead. He is not realy a nemisis for the crew. Remember that as far as we know only Han ever beat him at Sabaac, winning the Falcon. And the only other person to get the better of him was Vader, but Lando was stil able to rescue Leia, Chewie, Threepio, R2 and the Falcon from Vader's clutches.  

Marvel as we know it is done! (Article) - 1/21/2015 9:32:47 AM

I really liked the Ultimate Universe at the start. It was a fresh and new idea to take all the superheroes and toss out all the backstories and have them all popping up with their origin stories as if they were happening today, well 1996 at any rate. The movement from having everything being created by radiation to genetic manipualation was timely. Having Nick Fury become African American was awesome (especially since he is played by Samuel L. Jackson). What I didn't really care for was turning Fury into a class a jerk, having X-men Daredevil, or Spider-man get killed by the Magneto Wave.

I wouldn't mind if they did another reboot and set it with heoes who start popping up today, and start having to deal with things like ISIS, North Korea or other topical issues. I would also like to see heroes become more inclusive to race and sex. All of the ultra-powerful heroes in the Marvel universe still remain largely male and white, Mixing it up might be interesting.

Batman V. Superman TWO films? (Article) - 1/10/2015 3:11:53 PM

The more information that seems to come out the more I get worried about the whole WB DC movie franchise. The only thing that they seem to do consistantly well is TV and animation. They need to take Marvel's example and hire an overseer like Joss who understands comics, loves comics and knows how to write comics and then put him or her in charge and make sure all the ducks line up in a row.
