As expected, Marvel has released more character posters in its Avengers: Age of Ultron marketing campaign. And like the previous two posters featuring Iron Man and The Hulk, these new additions fail to thrill. Continue reading More Character Posters For Avengers: Age of Ultron
My day just got a billion times sadder. Our galaxy just got a billion times darker. Leonard Nimoy, whom we all knew and loved from film and television, especially for his portrayal of Mr. Spock on many different iterations of Star Trek, has died. Continue reading Leonard Nimoy: The Final Frontier
The 1982 sci-fi thriller Blade Runner, starring Harrison Ford, is one of my all-time favorite science fiction movies. I love everything about it—the story, the setting, the cinematography, the characters, everything. In fact, I recently got around to reading the original source material for the movie, Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and it was amazing. So, I was cautiously excited when I heard that a sequel was in the works. Continue reading Harrison Ford To Reprise Blade Runner Role
Movie studios spend millions on marketing their films, especially their tentpoles. And this summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is as big a tentpole as they come. Continue reading Hulk Smash! New Age Of Ultron Character Poster Revealed
With the revelation that Spider-Man would finally be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that Andrew Garfield was out, a lot of speculation has been flying about who will be cast as the new web-slinger. Two of those supposed possibilities, Donald Glover and Josh Hutcherson, have both made recent remarks regarding the speculation. Continue reading Glover/Hutcherson Sound Off On Spider-Man Casting Rumors
I cannot say enough how much I love what Marvel Studios and Disney are doing with their MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) properties. I feel like they’re hitting it out of the park with almost everything they do. Have I been ecstatic with every film? No (Iron Man 3 didn’t blow me away). But by and large, they really seem to know what they’re doing over there. And when it was confirmed that Spider-Man would be joining the MCU, I was overjoyed. Over the freaking moon. Continue reading New Pics From Marvel’s Daredevil Series Are Here
My favorite DC character is Batman. Hands down. The Dark Knight is mysterious, brooding, right in my milieu. When Batman: Arkham Asylum came out, I thought it was one of the best action games I’d ever played. I bought its two sequels Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Origins without hesitation. Continue reading Batman: Arkham Knight. The Trailer We Deserve?
I’ve been a Tomb Raider fan since its inception. I credit the first game with bringing me back into gaming after my chosen genre, adventure games, suffered a decline (which ultimately became its death, for all intents and purposes). Since that time, I’ve purchased every version of Tomb Raider, up until and including its most recent incarnation, which dealt with the character’s origins as a teenaged girl. I loved this new Lara with an unequaled fervor. And I’ve been waiting patiently (or not so patiently, as the case may be) for the next game in the series and also for a new film version that would go back to Lara’s roots, just as the game franchise has done. Continue reading Lara Croft Reboot Is On The Move
When I was growing up, Saturday morning cartoons were a big deal. A big. Deal. For a kid back in the 80s, it was almost my soul reason for existing. Well, that and my ever-expanding Star Wars action figure collection. But while shows like Looney Toons and Superfriends were definitely on my weekend playlist, I was more attracted to animated storytelling that went a little beyond what was typical. I was all about dragons, and sci-fi, and robots, and technology, and mystery. I was constantly salivating for the next episode of Dungeons & Dragons or Scooby-Doo (pre-Scrappy Doo, thank you very much). But my real favorites were always a bit harder to find. I’m talking about Battle of the Planets. I’m talking about Robotech. And I’m talking about a little show about a British secret agent named Danger Mouse. Continue reading Go, Go, Gadget Reboot!
I’m starting a new feature on this blog—a series of interviews with other indie authors like myself. I’m calling it Wordslingers, and for the first installment, I’m featuring fellow horror/urban fantasy/lovecraftian fiction author, K.M. Alexander, author of The Stars Were Right and its sequel, Old Broken Road. Continue reading Wordslingers: An Interview With K.M. Alexander
