Marvel Comics Secret Empire review

9/20/2017
More
Marvel's Secret Empire story-line made Captain America a complete opposite of what we have known about him for decades. They made it so Captain America had been an agent of Hydra ever since his childhood. Understandably, a lot of people were very upset over this new Captain America identity. The narrative is set in place long before the Secret Empire series kicked off. Let me take you back to the beginning. S.H.I.E.L.D. was experimenting with using fragments of Cosmic Cubes to reshape...

DC Comics Mister Miracle #1 review

9/13/2017
More
Mister Miracle has always been a very interesting, but lesser known characters in the DC Universe. He has always been one of those characters that seemed to do better on a team rather than in his own title. Tom King is a good enough writer to finally catapult Miracle Man into the limelight. Mister Miracle was created by Jack Kirby as part of his Fourth World epic saga. Mister Miracle (Scott Free) is the one of the New Gods. He is the son of Highfather, ruler of New Genesis. To bring about...

Karate Kid Cobra Kai on YouTube Red

9/6/2017
More
The first Karate Kid movie had me and all my friends obsessed with karate. Every where you looked around the neighborhood you saw kids with bandannas tied around their head trying to perfect their crane kick technique. There was just something about that movie that had everyone fascinated. The sequels and remakes that followed could never quite capture the same excitement as the original. They were good, but just not up to the same level as the original. 30 years later we are revisiting...

Pacific Rim Uprising

8/30/2017
More
Pacific Rim gave us everything we could ask for. Giant robots fighting cool looking monsters. Mix in Ron Perlman, Idris Elba, and Guillermo del Toro and you have the recipe for a sure fire hit. In the original some aliens are sending giant Kaiju through a portal in the Pacific Ocean. Earth has Giant robots (Jaegers) controlled by two pilots connected neurologically. Of course Earth wins the battle or there wouldn't be a second film. Pacific Rim: Uprising takes place ten years after Stacker...

Batman Dark Nights Metal

8/16/2017
More
DC Comics has done a lot to right the ship. They took a beating over their New 52 initiative. Things looked a little better with Forever Evil, but they took a big nasty turn with their Convergence story-line. A lot of readers were skeptical when DC Comics announced their Rebirth line wide event. They hadn't exactly been crushing it with their events. Rebirth has been exactly what DC Comics needed. They have mixed the right amount of teasing with a good amount of revealing. It has been...

DC Comics Black Lightning on the CW

8/9/2017
More
The CW network has been killing it with their DC Comics superhero related series. The Arrow paved the way for the Flash. Then they snatched up the rights to Supergirl from CBS to give them a solid trifecta of superhero shows. Now they are working on one of DC Comics lesser known and greatly under utilized characters, Black Lightning. Jefferson Pierce grew up in the Southside section of Metropolis. This area was referred to as Suicide Slum because it was widely believed the only way to...

Stephen King’s Dark Tower movie review

8/5/2017
More
People have been waiting for Stephen King's Dark Tower book series to be made into a movie for many years. It was teased several times over the years. They had a few comic book series expanding the Dark Tower universe, but never a movie. Patience and determination won out and fans finally got their movie. All was happiness and jubilation until they announced Idris Elba would be playing the main character, Roland Deschain. It is heavily implied in the books that Roland is white. The purists...

Marvel Comics Inhumans TV series on ABC

8/2/2017
More
ABC and Marvel are teaming up again for another TV series based on a Marvel Comics title. The Inhumans will share continuity with the films and television series that are already in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Marvel has done very well translating their big name characters and titles into blockbusters. They have also had tremendous success bringing some of their lesser knowns into the limelight (Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, etc). We are hoping that trend continues with the...

DC Comics Action Comics #982 review

7/26/2017
More
The Superman character under the DC Comics Rebirth initiative has been surprisingly good. Just recently the New 52 Superman and the pre-Flashpoint Superman & Lois Lane were merged. This merge was done by the pre-Flashpoint Jonathan Kent (Superman & Lois's son). Now they are teasing that Superman has something to do with the Doomsday Clock one-shot coming up in November. Lots of things affecting the DC Comics Universe seem to hinge on this character. **Warning- spoilers may follow** Between...

Thor Ragnarok movie preview

Chris Hemsworth will be returning to the MCU as Thor in Thor: Ragnarok. This is the third movie in the Thor series. Even though the name is Ragnarok it will be pulling material from several sources (Ragnarok, Planet Hulk, and Contest of Champions). Don't go into the movie expecting to see the Ragnarok story-line. The plot as we understand it pre-release is Thor is imprisoned on the gladiatorial planet of Sakaar without his trusty hammer, Mjolnir. He must defeat Hulk in battle so he can...
