  • Comic Book Review: ‘Wolverine’ #9

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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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 […]

  • ‘Arrow’ Has Found Its Flash

    Posted Friday, September 13th, 2013 09:16 pm GMT -4

    The producers of The CW’s ‘Arrow’ caused a stir when they announced that the Scarlet Speedster, known as The Flash would be appearing on their hit super hero drama.  Previously, there had been a “no powers” rule on the show, but that will be relaxed this fall, when the second season kicks off.  And while […]

  • Witness The ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy II’ Trailer

    Posted Friday, September 13th, 2013 08:00 pm GMT -4

    In 2011, director Kevin Tancheroen launched his original web series ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’ reinventing the characters from the classic video game in a grittier, more realistic world.  The first series was set before the original game, setting up the origins of the various characters and the mythology. The new season almost seems like a complete […]

  • ‘Star Wars’ Spinoffs Are “Origin Story Films”

    Posted Friday, September 13th, 2013 07:09 pm GMT -4

    Last year, ‘Star Wars’ fans received an abundance of good news. With Disney purchasing Lucasfilms, a new trilogy is on it’s way with the first one being helmed by J.J. Abrams. Additionally, Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg have been tapped to write and produce spinoff films in between the episodes of the new trilogy that […]

  • In The 8-Bit ‘Game Of Thrones,’ You Win Or You Die

    Posted Friday, September 13th, 2013 05:26 pm GMT -4

    Kids, when I was your age, 8-bit games were all we had, and they cost around $50, which back then was the average down payment for a DeLorean, and we used then to drive uphill both ways to our Weird Science classes and Breakfast Clubs. Ah, the 1980s were a good time. What was I […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Astonishing X-Men’ #67

    Posted Friday, September 13th, 2013 04:14 pm GMT -4

    After what I like to refer to as the “Age of Iceman’ that ended in issue #65 I was starting to feel sorry that we were going to see the end of the ‘Astonishing X-Men’. Of course that was until the story line that started taking place last issue and through this one. Now I […]
