Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice (2016)

Pip was in town last weekend for his yearly trek to Cleveland and during that trip we took the opportunity to go see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The flick has gotten absolutely blasted by the critics even though it was doing very well at the box office (at least for the first weekend). I don’t typically worry much about what critics have to say so I was very excited to see just what … Continue reading

Deadpool (2016) Gets A Crisp High Five

Deadpool (2016)

I finally got a chance to see Deadpool the other night. To say I enjoyed it would be a slight understatement. It was awesome. I’m not going to suggest I’m a Deadpool fan. I’m not. In fact, I’ve probably only read a handful of his comics ever. I was sort of, kind of familiar with the character and went into the movie essentially blind to the character and to the plot of the movie other … Continue reading

Man of Steel (2013) – Not Your Father’s Superman

Man Of Steel (2013)

Man of Steel is a 2013 reboot of the Superman franchise directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan, and scripted by David S. Goyer.  Once again we’re given the origin of the character which was originally told in the 1978 classic Superman.  Early indications are that Man of Steel is to launch a shared movie universe similar to how Marvel has created a shared universe for Iron Man, Thor and the other Avengers.  This … Continue reading

My Very Own Original Super Ugly

Optimus Ugly courtesy of the great John (Super Ugly) Williams

I’ve talked on occasion about my favorite podcast The Geek Savants.  One of the Savants is an artist known as Super Ugly.  John (Super Ugly) Williams is a multi-talented chap who does everything from hosting a podcast, to being the lead rapper in Unified School District, to being an amazing artist.  For years I’ve wanted to get my hands on a “Super Ugly Original” and I’m happy to say that it’s finally a reality. I … Continue reading

Action Lab Entertainment Presents: Double Jumpers

Double Jumpers #1 By Action Lab Entertainment

I’m a geek.  A comic book nerd.  I’m an 80’s movie quoting, hair metal loving dork.  I have been for as long as I can remember.  Unfortunately, as life has gotten in the way of my wasted youth, one of the things that has fallen by the wayside for a variety of reasons has been reading comic books.  Luckily, these days, there are a variety of ways for me to “keep up” with my old … Continue reading

The End Of The Line – G.I. Joe Pursuit Of Cobra

G.I. Joe Action Figures

I’ve been a huge fan of G.I. Joe for about as long as I can remember.  I collected the toys when I was growing up, watched the cartoon religiously and read the comic books.  When it came time to see G.I. Joe in the theater I was one of the few who actually enjoyed it on the big screen. These days with the boys I don’t do a whole lot of toy collecting.  The vast … Continue reading

The Walking Dead Compendium One – Comics On TV

The Walking Dead - Compendium One

There’s been quite a few shows and movies about zombies over the years but I have to say there have been none better than The Walking Dead which recently wrapped its first season on AMC.  If you haven’t seen it I’d highly recommend you check it out.  Even though it’s on TV, it’s not for the squeamish or faint of heart.  You’ve been warned.  And while it’s a tremendous show it pales in comparison to … Continue reading

On A Break With A Ninja = Vendetta

V For Vendetta (2005)

V For Vendetta (2005) Another story from comic legend Alan Moore.  Watching this movie I couldn’t help see the similarities with Watchmen (a post “bad shit” look at a city) and recognize just how fucked up Moore really must be.  Natalie Portman plays a great role here as does Hugo Weaving (though he’s clad the entire movie in a mask so all you’re hearing is his iconic voice).  At times this was a very slow … Continue reading

Bend Some Bullets With ‘Wanted’

Wanted (2008)

Being that I’m a comic nerd and a fan of assassin movies I’m pissed that it took me so long to get to this one.  I’ve never read the comic that this flick is based on but I figured that wouldn’t be a problem as it’s “loosely” based on the book from what I hear. Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is stuck in dead end job that he hates.  His world changes when he’s told that … Continue reading
