  • Hello Dark Souls, My Old Friend: Danno VS Dark Souls Revisited

    Hello Dark Souls, My Old Friend: Danno VS Dark Souls Revisited

      The definition of insanity is doing something over and over again the same but expect different results. That is a very appropriate definition for what is my second foray into the dark and dangerous world of Dark Souls.   That’s right, just like Demon Souls before it, I have been drawn back into this punishing and ruthless game, mostly because I needed something to play and I have not felt that seething self hatred that only Dark Souls can […]

    With Arrow and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD taking over TV land this past year it’s been a good year for comic book fans.

However, they will not be the only high profile comic adaptations coming to TV screen near you during 2014-2015. 5 additional shows based off DC and Marvel characters have been given the green light to become full series. The list of […]

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

    When Spider-Man 2 came out back in 2004, the film was hailed for brining a sense of maturity to comic book movies never before seen. It had a sympathetic and engaging villain in Doctor Octopus, a deeply personal journey for Peter Parker as both a civilian and costumed crime fighter, and it brought a new dynamic in the love story between Peter and MJ. Many considered Spider-Man 2 to not only be the best Spider-Man movie, but one of the […]

  • Can Zach Snyder Deliver the Justice League Movie We Deserve?

    Can Zach Snyder Deliver the Justice League Movie We Deserve?

    Zach Snyder occupies an interesting space in Hollywood these days. His films offer audiences a unique visual experience that few directors can achieve. Such films as 300, Watchmen, and Man of Steel show that he can deliver the spectacle that most comic book movies need in order to live up to the fantasies of our youth. However, the one main knock against Snyder remains his apparent inability to deliver a film of substance as just as well as his visuals. […]

  • Richard Linklater’s Ambitious Boyhood Looks Fantastic

    Richard Linklater’s Ambitious Boyhood Looks Fantastic

    Richard Linklater established himself as one of the true auteurs of Hollywood. His films transcend the limitations of studio-backed films and go for stories and experiences that are truly one of a kind. A Scanner Darkly, School of Rock, and Dazed and Confused show how diverse Linklater’s filmography is, while maintaining his unique visual style. Now, Linklater has his most ambitious film to date coming out this summer, with the release of the first trailer for Boyhood. Boyhood is a […]

    A Multiverse of Possibilities

    The run up to Avengers 2 and Batman VS Superman has the internet aflutter as to which is the best method of building a cohesive movie universe. The Marvel Way of starting slow and introducing solo movies then team up? Or go the way of DC and have two Superman movies and introduce everyone and their grandmother in the second? We won’t have a definitive answer till Batman VS Superman drops in 2016, but there is a way for DC […]

  • DotW: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

    DotW: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

    I am not the biggest fan of fighting games. Anything beyond Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, it’s all a haze of bright colors, oddball characters, and hyper violence that gets old after the first 5 clones. It takes a game doing something truly remarkable for me to actually sit up and take notice. This week’s demo of the week definitely displays flashes of whackiness and hyper stylized visuals to stand out in a crowded market. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle […]

  • Clone-A-Paloza: Why You Should Watch Orphan Black

    Clone-A-Paloza: Why You Should Watch Orphan Black

    BBC America has been home to a few of my favorite shows over the past couple of years. Namely, Doctor Who, Luther, and Broadchurch. Each offers a distinctly unique viewing experience that showed that when done right, British TV is leaps and bounds ahead of what American TV brings to the table night in and night out. Which brings me to this past Saturday. I had heard about this show that took BBC America by storm last year, Orphan Black. […]
