Gerard Way’s ‘Killjoys’ a rambunctious thrill ride with a message

Gerard Way’s ‘Killjoys’ a rambunctious thrill ride with a message

When I first heard My Chemical Romance‘s debut album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love I heard stories of star crossed lovers, fighting to survive, running from a punk rock, horror collage of pain, anguish, tragedy, and vampires.  I could close my eyes and see the moving pictures as they burned and embedded their imagery onto my heart and soul forever.  Leaving an impact on my style, my life, my thoughts, … Read entire article »

Fitting finale for the ‘Dark Knight’

Fitting finale for the ‘Dark Knight’

Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy has the best qualities of comic book adaptations. After a shaky cinematic history, Gotham’s Dark Knight finally gets the respect he deserves with Nolan’s three films: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and the final installment, The Dark Knight Rises. Fans are given a fitting farewell in this final film, which ties up loose ends and provides a natural conclusion for our winged hero. The Dark Knight Rises finds Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) … Read entire article »

‘Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope’ captures passion of San Diego Comic-Con

‘Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope’ captures passion of San Diego Comic-Con

Perhaps the most overused word when describing fans is “passionate”, but that is the best way to describe all those who attend the behemoth convention that is Comic-Con. Morgan Spurlock has taken on the task of telling the story of Comic-Con 2010 in the documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope–not an easy feat due to the plethora of characters that attend this convention.  Comic-Con is a unique experience for everyone who attends, but Spurlock chooses … Read entire article »

Green Lantern confuses CG for story

Green Lantern confuses CG for story

It’s not every day we get to be excited for a new comic book movie like Green Lantern. No, we only get that excitement once every couple of months when Hollywood decides to churn out a new CGI-filled comic book adaptation. With a cast of Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and Peter Sarsgaard with Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness) at the helm, the film had fans excited. However, somewhere along the line, something went … Read entire article »

Thor is great action movie fun

Thor is great action movie fun

When I first saw the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans, I was sure it was a comedy. The ridiculous accents, the over-the-top action, the beards, all of it felt intentionally bad. Unfortunately, it seems like the filmmakers didn’t realize what a bad movie they had made. Thor is an entirely different story, an action-packed comic book movie that doesn’t make the critical error of taking itself too seriously. … Read entire article »
