To The Batmobile!

nBZU3Ch

This week we got our first real glimpse of the Batmobile in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. And guess what? The Internet pretty much hates it.

But guess what? It’s exactly like every other Batmobile that’s appeared in a Batman movie. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: MPH and Edge of Spider-Verse!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

 mph_03MPH #3 (Image Comics)

 MPH #3 from Mark Millar and Duncan Fegredo finds Roscoe and his pals doing what a lot of young people would do if they discovered they could gain superpowers from a pill: they rob banks.

To be fair, they don’t rob banks because evil. They do it to get back at the bureaucrats and big businesses that have screwed over Detroit. In the course of a few days, they hit up 47 banks and amass such a large fortune that they decide to give away 10 million of it to the people of Detroit. While their supply of MPH may be gone in a few days, Roscoe and his pals are enjoying their time with it. Except for Baseball, who thinks that the White House holds the key to more stashes of MPH. He breaks in after taking a hit of cocaine, which messes with the MPH speed effect. Of course, the secret service finds him, which leads to a panicked Baseball taking the remainder of his pills, which causes his powers to become a bit more intense than his buddies.

The Power Of Shazam!

rock-black-adamIt’s finally official: The Rock (or should I say Dwayne Johnson) is playing Black Adam in WB’s Shazam movie. This casting is so good that there has to be a catch.

And there is. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: The Death of Wolverine and Original Sin!

COMIC REVIEWS!

 Death-of-Wolverine-McNiven-coverThe Death of Wolverine #1 (of 4) (Marvel Comics)

 MINOR SPOILERS

Marvel’s definitely pulling out all the stops for The Death of Wolverine; The first issue of the weekly event features an impressive chrome cover, Steve McNiven as the artist, and a ton of “bonus features”. Unfortunately those bonus features make up more than the actual story within the issue, and don’t really justify the $4.99 cover price. Read the rest of this entry

2014 Summer Movie Wrap-Up!

-380ed957-36d7-4dec-bada-2b76d6b3523cIt’s now Labor Day, which can only mean one thing: summer, and the movies that came with it, are over. This summer movie season saw a huge amount of comic book and other geek friendly movies hit our screens, some good (Guardians of the Galaxy) and some bad (Amazing Spider-Man 2). So, how do they all stack up when we put them against one another? I’m glad you asked, because it’s time for my annual Summer Movie Wrap Up! Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman Beyond Universe!

COMIC REVIEWS!

5367a942c29e3 (1) Guardians of the Galaxy #18 (Marvel Comics)

 The Guardians enter Original Sin with Guardians of the Galaxy #18, which is an extremely strong issue after some pretty less than stellar ones. This issue by Brian Michael Bendis and Ed McGuinness isn’t an exact Original Sin tie-in. In fact, the banner on top of the cover is more of an excuse to finally shed some light on how Star-Lord and Thanos made it out of the Cancerverse back in The Thanos Imperative. And before you say anything, yes, things happen in this issue! Read the rest of this entry

So Long, Superior Foes.

superior-foes-of-spider-man-issue-1-8-bit-waite-var-nowSuperior Foes of Spider-Man is ending in November. Now it’s not surprising, as Superior Foes hasn’t exactly been burning up the sales charts, but there’s still a part of me that wishes this series would still continue (not without Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber, of course).

Comic Reviews: Multiversity and The Fade Out!

Comic Reviews!

 comics-the-multiversity-1Multiversity #1 (DC Comics)

 MILD SPOILERS

The wait is over: Grant Morrison’s magnum opus, Multiversity, is finally on the shelf. This alternate universe-spanning tale has been building in Morrison’s brain for ten years, and now, it’s finally out. Multiversity #1, drawn by Ivan Reis, is the first in a series of one-shots that will tell the whole Multiversesity tale. But with so much hype around this issue, is it any good? Hell, is it even readable? Read the rest of this entry

The Sinister Sony

1835191-ece8d_spidey___black_cat_1___color_by_greatlpAnother week, another Sony Spider-Man rumor. Unfortunately for me, this one goes against the current crop of rumors suggesting that Marvel Studios MAY get the rights back. The latest news from Sony’s Spider-man “brain trust” has announced that they are planning another film alongside the in development Sinister Six and Venom (or should I now say Venom Carnage) movies: one that will feature, for the first time in a post-Avengers world, a female lead.

Now before I begin my rant, let me be clear: I’m 100% on board with a movie starring a female superhero. In fact, I’ve long been waiting for Marvel to finally announce a Captain Marvel movie, or for WB to finally get in gear and give Wonder Woman her own film. But Spidey, who I’ve already mentioned has limited characters who could support their own movie, has an even SMALLLER pool of female heroes that could get their own films. Really, only three come to mind: Black Cat, Silver Sable, and Spider-Woman. We can probably count Spider-Woman out, because I would assume that she’s under Marvel Studios’ ownership (she’s primarily been an Avenger anyways, and her resurgence in comics came after the original Sony Spider-Man films were under way).

Movie Review: The Expendables 3

EX3-PosterThe Expendables 3 (2014)

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes

Directed By: Patrick Hughes

MILD SPOILERS

I’ll admit it; my hopes weren’t very high for Expendables 3. I’m a pretty big fan of Stallone, Arnold, and Statham movies in a “these are so ridiculous that I love them” way, but as much fun as the Expendables series is, they’ve always left me wanting just a little bit more. Plus, to add insult to injury, this entry in the series was committing a cardinal sin and receiving a PG-13 rating, an act that almost made me not see it in theaters (seriously, my twitter rant about it is easy to find).
