    When we last left the contestants of ‘Avengers Arena’, the final story arc of the series titled “Boss Level” began in issue fifteen. This five-part finale of the Harvey Award-winning book brought us to the final days of the game, which is where we started way back in the first issue. X-23’s trigger scent was […]

    The folks at Total Film have obliged us by giving a brand new behind the scenes featurette for the upcoming remake of ‘Carrie’. Featuring director Kimberly Peirce and stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, and Judy Greer, the video goes into the things that make the film based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel scary. You can check […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avengers’ #19

    Posted Sunday, September 15th, 2013 04:00 pm GMT -4 by

    ‘Infinity’ continues as the Galactic Council regroups after their retreat from the battle against the Builders in ‘Avengers’ #18. When we last saw them, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had joined the likes of the Kree, the Skrulls, the Brood, the Spartax, and more as they look to stop the threat making it’s way through the universe […]

  • Traveling Forward in Time Is a Piece of Cake

    Posted Sunday, September 15th, 2013 02:00 pm GMT -4 by

    At the British Science Festival in Birmingham on September 10, famed physicist Brian Cox shared his theory that time-traveling forward may be simpler than we thought. However, you may run into a few obstacles traveling back in time. As you and I already know, time slows down when you travel at the speed of light. […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Aquaman’ #23.1 (Black Manta)

    Posted Sunday, September 15th, 2013 12:00 pm GMT -4 by

    In a refreshing change of pace, this is not an origin story.  This is probably because Black Manta’s origin was already told in the pages of the regular ‘Aquaman’ series.  His beginnings are briefly summarized, but things quickly progress from there. This issue parallels ‘Forever Evil’ #1 and indeed a brief scene from this book […]

  • Canada Pays Tribute To Superman Through Coins And Stamps

    Posted Sunday, September 15th, 2013 10:00 am GMT -4 by

    In honor of Superman’s 75th birthday, Canada is minting a series of coins to pay tribute to the iconic hero.  The Royal Canadian Mint will produce seven special coins to commemorate the first costumed super hero that range in value from $10 to $750!  You can order them all, but a few are extremely limited.  […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine’ #9

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 09:00 pm GMT -4 by

    It’s been no surprise that Wolverine would become killable this year. With the loss of his healing factor (hey this has happened before) we might finally see Logan die. It’d be one way to keep him from popping up in 20 books a time until they brought him back to life. We skipped the last […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men’ #5: Battle Of The Atom Chapter 3

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 07:30 pm GMT -4 by

    We’re going to be taking a couple issue break from our usual run of X-Men and not continue where we left off in issue #4. Good thing they gave the first story arc a decent book end or there would be a lot of fans out for blood for an interrupted plot right now. Since […]

  • Robert Zemeckis In Talks To Direct Dystopian Trilogy ‘Chaos Walking’

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4 by

    Filmmaker Robert Zemeckis is responsible for bringing the world some of the greatest movies ever created. From ‘Forrest Gump’ to ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ to ‘Cast Away’, he’s had quite the career up to this point. However, arguably his greatest contribution to cinema is the ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy. But now, it looks as […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Mighty Avengers’ #1

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 04:30 pm GMT -4 by

    Back in June, Marvel announced that Luke Cage would be coming out of retirement to lead his own team of Avengers again in a new incarnation of ‘Mighty Avengers’. Spinning out from the pages of ‘Infinity’, this new book from writer Al Ewing and artist Greg Land assembles a group of heroes that come together […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Fearless Defenders’ #9

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 03:00 pm GMT -4 by

    It appears the team of Defenders has solidified– Misty Knight, Valkyrie (now sharing the same body as Annabelle Riggs), Dani Moonstar, Hippolyta, Clea and Elsa Bloodstone.  But in another part of Manhattan, a different gathering of heroes has congregated– Iron Fist, Venom, Cannonball, Nate Grey, Hercules, Doctor Strange and Jack Russell (Werewolf By Night).  What […]

  • Evan Daugherty To Scribe ‘G.I. Joe 3’ Screenplay

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 01:30 pm GMT -4 by

    While ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ was met with mostly mixed reviews, the sequel starring The Rock as a Real American Hero did well enough to warrant a sequel. Shortly after the film’s opening weekend, we learned that ‘G.I. Joe 3’ would be going into production. Then, about a month ago, director Jon M. Chu announced that […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Infinity: The Hunt’ #1

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 12:00 pm GMT -4 by

    During big events such as ‘Infinity’, it’s not uncommon for some books to be released that take us by surprise. They probably weren’t part of the initial line up, but things happened and they were born and added later. I don’t know the full story for sure, but that’s how I imagine that ‘Infinity: The […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ #114

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 10:30 am GMT -4 by

    This book can be really frustrating at times, as long-time readers should know.  With the ‘All Out War’ event beginning next issue, #114 is a fine example of the art of stretching things out too thin. After last issue, Rick and some of his allies are at the mercy of Negan, but this issue reinforcements […]

  • Naughty Images Depicted on Ancient Roman Coins

    Posted Saturday, September 14th, 2013 09:00 am GMT -4 by

    The pornographic playing cards you found in your grandfather’s basement may seem ancient, but nothing compares to this. Ancient Roman coins have been found with depictions of some racy sex acts. Known as “spintriae”, these coins were made from bronze or brass. They date as far back as the first century CE. One side of […]
