• Comic Book Review: ‘Revival’ #13

    Posted Sunday, August 25th, 2013 02:00 pm GMT -4 by

    It’s really hard to explain why I had such a good feeling about this issue of ‘Revival’, but I’m going to give it a go. Typically, I despise romantic subplots. It’s usually a crass reminder of what producers of creative content think the lowest denominator is. Yet, I think in regards to #13 of ‘Revival’, […]

    Posted Sunday, August 25th, 2013 01:00 pm GMT -4 by

    Another chapter closes for Wonder Woman, as she loses another cast member in her “family’s” last stand against First Born.  (It’s not really the last stand, as he is getting his own one shot next month.)  It’s all out war as First Born unleashes his savage beast men, but one of Wonder Woman’s allies cuts […]

    Posted Sunday, August 25th, 2013 12:00 pm GMT -4 by

    Similar to ‘Thunderbolts’, I haven’t picked up an issue of ‘Avengers Assemble’ in a long time. Back then, Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley were working on the book and it featured the team of Avengers from the popular Joss Whedon movie. But since then, the incomparable Kelly Sue DeConnick has taken over writing duties […]

    Having already been cast as Ezekiel, a fallen angel on The CW’s ninth season of ‘Supernatural’ this fall, ‘Battlstar Glactica’ and ‘Dollhouse’ alum, Tahmoh Penikett won’t be relaxing anytime soon.  Instead, he will transition over to a second CW series, the mid-season replacement ‘Star-Crossed.’ ‘Star-Crossed’ sounds similar to cult hit ‘Roswell,’ describing a romance between […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men Legacy’ #15

    The last few issues of ‘X-Men Legacy’ culminated with some mutant UK action and in issue #14, Legion’s mommy being called to come and pick him up. That’s right, for the first time in awhile Gabrielle Haller is back. While I’ve been loving this series so far, Simon Spurrier has truly outdone himself with this issue. […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Cable And X-Force’ #13

    Posted Sunday, August 25th, 2013 09:00 am GMT -4 by

    With Cable still captured and his new X-Force spread out doing their own assigned missions, we’ve been focusing quite a bit on the missions themselves in the last few issues. In fact it wasn’t until last issue that we, ahem, found out, ahem, that Lady Stryfe in the future was actually Hope. (Seriously who didn’t […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Venom’ #39

    Posted Saturday, August 24th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4 by

    With Venom having pissed off the local crime lord, Lord Ogre, he’s had quite a few assassins trying to take him out. It might look like overkill to some, but Venom is a special kind of hero and can deal with hte fallout from this. That is, until it strikes a little too close to […]

    Posted Saturday, August 24th, 2013 02:00 pm GMT -4 by

    There’s a lot of Affleck buzz going around, with news of Ben dawning the bat cape in the upcoming Superman/Batman film, but rather than add to the hilarious Armchair Casting Agents’ opinions, we thought we’d bring some news of another Affleck. Little brother Casey, who’s perhaps best known for his role in ‘The Assassination of […]

    Technology is amazing. Never in a million years did I think that conducting a seance online would be a something I’d see happen in my lifetime. New media is certainly giving the old wooden Quija board a run for its money! FilmDistrict is asking fans and viewers alike to participate in an online seance as […]
