Amityville (2015) Trailer (Article) - 8/24/2014 5:37:32 AM

They should make an Amityville version about a family that pretends to live in a haunted house and then becomes rich selling stupid books.

The Strain: Occultation Review (Article) - 8/20/2014 12:35:39 PM

 Yes, in the comic Elizalde gets arrested with Setrakian, that's how they meet each other and then they connect later on. In the show, they connect because Elizalde's brother steels the clock from Setrakian and Elizalde gives it back. Still waiting to see how the show is going to connect the team members, Fet and Elizalde are still on their own.

They seem to be doing it right. They are following the comic but, at the same time, creating their own scenes and threads. Some of the best lines were kept, (Now you show up!).

Of course, what works in a comic doesn't work in a tv show. (In the comic, Eph's escape from the FBI and Felix's infection would be somewhat unbelievable for a TV show.) And if they keep playing it right, the Master will only appear on the last episode, the final showdown (at least, that's what's on IMDB). Next episode seems to be another set of flash backs, and the next one is Assault on Precinct 13 in strigoi mode.

And they seem to have introduced another main character from the comic, although he plays a minor part in this episode. But I want to see him punching strigoi's in the face when hell breaks loose! Now, will Fet, Gus, and the nigerian dudes from the chop shop, join the team please?

And will they bring the other characters from the comic as well (I am talking about the stranger ones, those who read the comic know who I am talking about)? Because they haven't yet explained the Master's origin and it's relation to Setrakian. And why this is all happening now. And why four were kept alive...

Maybe the best episode so far, but the show will only heat up when the crap hits the fan and the hunt begins next episode! There are seven episodes to go, according to IMDB, and they seem to be following the first comic book. Which means the second will be saved for a second season. In the mean time, I am waiting for the third book to come out.

Edge of Tomorrow Blu-ray Release Details (Article) - 8/15/2014 2:32:15 AM

They're remaking Source Code? Kewl!

'Hyperion suggests that you do not think about the fact that this is only a digital reconstruction of your original body, which died the first time you respawned. Do NOT think about this!'

The Strain: Runaways Review (Article) - 8/11/2014 11:14:20 AM

I watch every episode twice. That's how damn good they are. They are moving it slow in the show, keeping their own pace, and that clashes with the comic, where they can jump ahead faster. Comparing with other adaptations, I still think this is the best one.

The Strain: It's Not for Everyone Review (Article) - 8/6/2014 1:25:49 PM

'I almost feel as though I am missing something by watching this story unfold as a series, alone.'

No, you are not. They are telling everything, they are just using a different timeframe from the comic.

 So, the reviewer supports book readers? I feel vindicated.

Told you the shed scene would be good. Wait til you learn how Abraham and the beast are connected. I hope they tell the entire story next episode, or at least the most important details. The master's identity is still an enigma...

But can't wait to see Gus and Vasily evolve to their full power in the show. How many days to the eclipse?...

The Strain: Gone Smooth Review (Article) - 7/31/2014 10:48:53 AM

Yeeeessssss, I have read the books and YOU haven't. Kneel before your god! I know everything there is to know about GoT and The Strain!

The Walking Dead, on the other hand... I mean, really, the other hand... the one Rick Grimes loses on the comic... feels like The Bible but Jesus kills the Romans with a machine gun... know the feeling?

The original source is what makes this shows great. People want to be surprised but, at the same time, want the source to be respected. The Strain is accomplishing it, by keeping the same thread as the comic but changing minor details. Vasily Fet is a great character in the comic, and they chose a very good actor for the part. On GoT, they moated it all up, building suspense to short scenes, and filling this last season with exposition. And The Walking Dead, that show that shares the same name with the comic but nothing else...

SHED SCENE! SHED SCENE! SHED SCENE! WOOF!!

The Strain: Gone Smooth Review (Article) - 7/29/2014 6:18:30 AM

I hope next episode they give us the shed scene, like in the comics. For what I've seen in 'next week's episode' scenes, there is something on a shed. Boy, am I excited...
