I was too lazy to Photoshop The Rock’s face into this.

Earlier today, Kevin Tsujihara, head of the studio over at Warner Bros (who controls movie rights to DC Universe) announced a very deep and very ambitious timeline for movies in the foreseeable future. Everybody knows that with the exception of Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy (which in a way transcends and…

NYCC Day 3

Today was a much simpler day but filled with some incredible content.

After getting our panel passes for Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix Exclusive Panel we spent the next few hours checking out the rest of NYCC. We explored the rest of the showroom floor which included Marvel, DC, and Lego. There were some incredible artists with great work on display.

After that we grabbed a bite on our way to the…

NYCC Day 2

Early start today but well worth it. Step one was a beeline for the the ticket line for the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel; a great idea because those tickets went within minutes. Then it wasa quick hop over to the “Elementary” panel line to get THAT ticket. Finally, I was free to hit the show floor. It’s crazy to see the amount of people who attend. There also some awesome stores and very talented…

Arrow Season 3 Premiere: “The Calm”

PVZHpuX The team is back!

The team is at their best. Roy and Oliver are fighting together. Oliver has returned to hunting down criminals and those who “have failed this city”. Roy has taken up the sidekick mantle established last season and has matured a lot. Seems like Roy understands that recon is important and being a sidekick isn’t necessarily a bad thing. He is also kind of badass now; his fighting…

The Flash Premiere “Pilot” Recap

Flash!

Flash!

Last night The Flash premiered on The CW to the channel’s highest premiere ratings in five years! This comes as no shock (ha! pun) since the DC Universe has been dominating the small screen while Marvel thrives at the big screen; not to mention the successful Arrow set up The Flash quite well. In this pilot episode, we are re-introduced to Barry Allensee his origin in greater detail, up…

"The Maze Runner" Astounds with a Predictably Indecipherably Labyrinthian and Nebulously Insufferable Plot

“The Maze Runner” Astounds with a Predictably Indecipherably Labyrinthian and Nebulously Insufferable Plot

the-maze-runner

Don’t ask me what The Maze Runner was about because I have absolutely no idea. It’s got a plot about as cryptic as its titular labyrinth.

Sure, I sat through two hours of forced dialogue and exposition, an illogically quickening plot, and honest to goodness splendid action sequences, but I have neither a comprehension of what actually happened nor an understanding of what the film said. I don’t…

The second look at this season’s must see new shows featuring FOX, The CW, and CBS. FOX Mulaney (Sundays 9:30/8:30c)

Premise: The show follows John in his day-to-day life as he interacts with his friends and works as a joke writer for a game-show host.

In a very Seinfeld style show, John Mulaney plays a version of himself (think Whitneybut perhaps not quite as terrible). This comedy will see…

Moffat’s “Listen” Revitalizes Doctor Who Like Never Before

Moffat’s “Listen” Revitalizes Doctor Who Like Never Before

When they made this particular hero they didn’t give him a gun they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray they gave him an extra heart. They gave…
