HBO Max | 2021NOW STREAMING 2021 is already shaping up to be a very odd year. Entering the second year of a global pandemic that has had an enormous financial impact on literally every area of the world, it’s an unprecedented time to be alive and consuming media. Warner Bros. made the shocking announcement lastContinue reading “ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE (2021)”

Island #1 (Image Comics, July 2015)

Risk. Not the strategy board game that made your cousin cry that one time, but real risk. It’s something that I feel isn’t seen much in the mainstreamĀ comic book landscape. Even some of what could be seen as the biggest risks taken by the big comic book publishers in recent years feel too carefully calculated.Continue reading “Island #1 (Image Comics, July 2015)”

Ant-Man (Marvel Studios 2015)

While Ant-Man himself is one of the original Avengers, it took fifteen years and eleven other filmsĀ before he would finally be granted his silver screen debut. Marvel Studios’ latest film and the true end of “Phase Two”, the overlying arc spanning six films (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier,Continue reading “Ant-Man (Marvel Studios 2015)”

General Nerdery | No Spoilers | Happy Father’s Day

GAME OF THRONES HIATUS: WEEK ONE * First Sunday without Game of Thrones. The walls are closing in like so many White Walkers. I can hear the wind howling from outside and though it is bright and warm as the sun beams down from the heavens above, I know the truth. Winter is coming. IContinue reading “General Nerdery | No Spoilers | Happy Father’s Day”

31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Thirty-One: Halloween (1978)

And here it is, the movie you all knew was coming. The one film that is most likely on everyone’s “Must Watch On Halloween” list. The movie named after the day itself. I’m speaking, of course, of John Carpenter’s 1978 classic: Halloween! — Details: Year Released: 1978 Written By: John Carpenter, Debra Hill Directed By:Continue reading “31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Thirty-One: Halloween (1978)”

31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Thirty: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Wes Craven is a disturbed individual. No, really. He read a string of LA Times articles printed in the 1970s about a number of men in South East Asia who died under mysterious terms while experiencing vivid nightmares. A normal person reads a few articles of that nature and thinks “Oh, how terrible.” or “ThoseContinue reading “31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Thirty: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)”

31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Nine: Friday the 13th (1980)

The slasher genre of horror movie is a thing of beauty. You take a bunch of teenagers doing “bad” things (having sex, drinking alcohol, doing drugs) and toss in a maniac with a machete to “punish” them. To death. The 1980s was lousy with slasher films, many of which are being remade today, but arguablyContinue reading “31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Nine: Friday the 13th (1980)”

31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Eight: Night of the Living Dead

I’ve already covered zombies, with Zack Snyder’s 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead, but I felt it only right to go all the way back to the film that started it all, the film that changed the very meaning of the term “Zombie” and gave us all a genre of horror movie that remainsContinue reading “31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Eight: Night of the Living Dead”

31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Seven: Creepshow

There’s something magical about a horror anthology film, especially one that ties all the stories together in some way. It’s a series of morality tales, all teaching you something different about yourself or the world around you, in one package. A bargain, a lost art form, and a sub-genre that is in major need ofContinue reading “31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Seven: Creepshow”

31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Six: Silver Bullet

The 1980s was a good time for werewolf fans. With An American Werewolf in London The Howling opening in theaters early in the decade, the latter spinning into a franchise of sequels with varying success, there was even a television series that aired a single season between 1987 and 1988 entitled, simply, Werewolf. Another gemContinue reading “31 Days of Horror Movies | Day Twenty-Six: Silver Bullet”
