I picked this one up primarily because it looked relatively kid friendly. I just wanted something to share with my kids. In a Groot based issue language isn't going to be an issue, and it likely won't have much in the way of a lot of violence or mature themes. I was pleasantly surprised! This … Continue reading This Blog is Groot: Guardians of the Galaxy 16
Three episodes in and I'm still enjoying the series. The two leads continue to be solid, and we are finally starting to get a sniff of what Mr Wednesday might actually be planning. Gods and supernatural beings continue to be introduced(some more graphically than others), and I'm getting more and more curious as to how … Continue reading American Gods: Episode 3
I enjoyed the first episode, so I decided to watch the second as well. It opens in the cargo hold of a slave ship, with a slave praying to his God, Anansi, to save him. Anansi, portrayed by Orlando Jones shows up and quickly riles up the slaves and has them kill their captors and … Continue reading American Gods Episode 2
I checked out a Fast and the Furious film in the theater, for what might actually be the first time... I'm pretty sure I've either rented or streamed all the other ones(and haven't actually seen the third one). Oh well. I was pretty excited to check this one out, as Fast 7 was one hell … Continue reading Fun Fast and Furious, A look at Fate of the Furious
I bought this issue solely for the cover: It looks just like a vintage propaganda poster. The imagery of the Stormtroopers as strong defenders of the Empire, looking implacable is just breathtaking. This cover is just plain beautiful. There is also some really neat imagery: The story itself comes from the perspective of a Stormtrooper. … Continue reading Stormtroopers Looking Cool: Star Wars #21
After managing to avoid spoilers since its release, I finally went and saw Logan. To be perfectly honest, this was nothing like what I'd grown to expect from a comic book movie, and definitely nothing like what I've come to expect from an X-Men movie. It was its own animal. It stood out and above … Continue reading I can’t believe that’s a comic book movie! A look at Logan.
I enjoyed this movie. I originally went back when it came out in December, but went again seeing as it recently hit the cheap theater. My hope was that I would enjoy it just as much as I did during my first theatrical viewing, and I was not disappointed, though I was assured by an … Continue reading Going Rogue: My second trip to see Rogue One
I'll start with a warning: There will be spoilers ahead, so if you haven't watched the episode, consider yourself warned. I've been looking forward to this episode since they released the mid-season trailer and we got that brief shot of Obi-Wan ready for a fight. He has been one of my favourite characters for years, … Continue reading The Return of my Favourite Jedi: my thoughts on Star Wars Rebels Twin Suns
I took my kids to their first movie in the theater this past weekend. We went and saw the latest Disney offering, Moana. I wasn't aware of much about this movie, aside from the fact that The Rock voiced one of the characters. I was also concerned about how my three-year old would behave. Luckily, … Continue reading My Kid’s First Cinema Experience: An afternoon with Moana
As far as comics go I've always sort of been more of a Marvel guy. Not that DC has never put out good stuff, but teenage me was always into the X-Men. That, and I've never been a huge Superman fan. Not sure why, but the character never really resonated with me or seemed interesting. … Continue reading A First Foray into Justice: My first ever Justice League comic, #14.
