Goodbye Maniacs (Article) - 2/15/2015 8:34:14 AM

Well crap. I haven't always been a frequent poster, but I liked keeping up to date with stuff going on in the wold of comics and related material and I liked this site for doing that. I ejoyed the discussions, the debates and in some cases the knock down drag out arguments. If this is the end then I wish the staff all the best, and may all the rest of you maniacs have luck, peace and happiness where ever you are and where ever you go.

Superman vs. Hulk: Who Would Win in a Fight (Article) - 2/9/2015 5:49:45 AM

I appreciate that it is a slow month. However, it seems that all Mania is doing is releasing retro articles, to the point of pushing new stuff down. The Flash, Castle, and Arrow reviews were put on the second bar, while all this retro stuff is getting top billing. Jupiter Assending opened on last Friday and yet no review yet on the movie. I don't mind seeing some of the retro stuff, but there is still new things out there to be writing about as well.

 

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.  

Terminator Genisys - Big Game Spot (Article) - 1/30/2015 5:52:12 AM

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.
