#Reading Uncanny Avengers, Volume 1: The Apocalypse Twins
There’s nothing like a good comic book story arc. I don’t mean a quick one and done issue. I mean something that spans a lot of time with intricate elements and blending plotlines that show the writer had taken a lot of time to plot out the story. One of the masters of this style […]

Rejoice! Jodie Whittaker Takes On The Mantle of the 13th Doctor

Rejoice! Jodie Whittaker Takes On The Mantle of the 13th Doctor
There was a lot of speculation that the next incarnation of The Doctor could be a woman. After 12 other regenerations, you’d think that it would’ve happened a lot sooner… along with maybe a different color. If the showrunners did pick a woman, I would really praying for Olivia Colman. But I remember Jodie Whittaker from some favorites […]

Quote of The Moment: Dr. Dre

You know what? When I comes to release dates, I think (they're) the enemy of creativity. You know you never know when you’re going to be inspired or what's going to inspire you. There's no time limit on creativity.

The Unveiling of The 13th Doctor Who Is This Sunday After Wimbledon

The Unveiling of The 13th Doctor Who Is This Sunday After Wimbledon
So sad to see Peter Capaldi go. I know he had 3 good seasons.. which seems to be the time most actors get to play Doctor Who. But I don’t think Capaldi got the best treatment in those 3 years. Sure, there were some awesome episodes sprinkled in his run, but (a) his pairing with […]

It’s Finally Here! I Can’t Wait to Play XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

It’s Finally Here! I Can’t Wait to Play XCOM 2: War of the Chosen
I’ve LOVE the recent set of XCOM games. XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012), the expansion Enemy Within (2013) and the most recent XCOM 2 (2016) have all been excellent tactical strategy games. Throw in the MODS Community add-ons and these were incredible games with a ton of replay value. But after playing XCOM 2 for 100’s […]

The Strain Goes Post Apocalyptic In The Fourth and Final Season

The Strain Goes Post Apocalyptic In The Fourth and Final Season
The Strain has quietly been one of my favorite tv shows right now. A lot of folks weren’t too impressed with the slow burn of the plot, but I love the complex characters and their failing attempt to save the world from the onslaught of the vampiric Strigoi. There’s been a nice progression to the series, […]

Quotes of The Moment: Denzel Washington

It's simple: You get a part. You play a part. You play it well. You do your work and you go home. And what is wonderful about movies is that once they're done, they belong to the people. Once you make it, it's what they see. That's where my head is at.

I Did Not Want To Like Claws. But.. Yeah.. I Really Like Claws

I Did Not Want To Like Claws. But.. Yeah.. I Really Like Claws
There are a lot of ‘I did not knows’ saddled to TNT’s new crime drama Claws. On paper, this show has nothing I really care about in a TV Show. On the first impression, it reminded me of the old cheap night-time formulaic shows that USA Network use to put out (Pacific Blue, Silk Stalkings, […]

Get Ready For Atomic Blonde

Get Ready For Atomic Blonde
With some of the coolest fights scenes, Atomic Blonde is the latest indie comic book inspired movie to feature a kick-ass female protagonist beating the living hell out of everyone.. at least that’s what I get from the trailer. In any case, I don’t know what’s going on but Charlize Theron look hot as hell and […]

One Month Out, I’m Am So Ready for Marvel’s The Defenders

One Month Out, I’m Am So Ready for Marvel’s The Defenders
Three years in the making, Marvel’s The Defenders is a little more than a month out. It’s incredible how geek lightening that’s struck twice. At first the unimaginable happen. Marvel dropped a series of movies culminating in an Avengers team-up movie. Now.. somehow Marvel has teamed up with Netflix and pulled together the four heroes that […]

Quote of The Moment: Noam Chomsky

With the development of industrial capitalism, a new and unanticipated system of injustice, it is libertarian socialism that has preserved and extended the radical humanist message of the Enlightenment and the classical liberal ideals that were perverted into an ideology to sustain the emerging social order.

Peter Capaldi Says Farewell As Doctor Who Season 10 Comes To A Close

Peter Capaldi Says Farewell As Doctor Who Season 10 Comes To A Close
Ok, I have to admit these past few seasons of Doctor Who haven’t been my favorite. It’s messed up because Peter Capaldi has been one of my favorite Doctors. It’s just the stories weren’t exactly that great. Bill, the latest companion was also one of my favorites. Unfortunately, we won’t get to explore her anymore […]
