Gods And Monsters!

Honestly, I wanted to call this article Thor, Motherfuckers!!!  This goddamn movie makes me want to smack a troll in the chops with a war hammer.  I want to tear a hole in the sky with my fanboy hard-on.  I’m practically sitting here in a puddle of my own drool after watching Thor:  Ragnarok.  I shit you not, I could fucking cry I am so delighted with this film. I have to admit, though, that I walked into the theater today with more than a little trepidation.  Taika Waititi has…

With all the horse shit that came raining down on Sunday, this image of dignified defiance seemed uniquely appropriate.                                   PS: If you have any info on the person in this image or the person who made it, please contact us here.

Yes, Please!

I have nothing to add today except speculation but boy is it tasty.  We learned some time ago that Peter Dinklage had been added to the cast of Avengers: Infinity War but there had been no word as to who he was portraying.  Initial rumors that he was to play M.O.D.O.K. turned out to be just that, rumors.  Now, some folks are putting it about that he is to voice the character Arsenal.  However….. The word last week was that Mr. Dinklage was seen sporting a red hairdo.  Now, this…

Hollywood Buzz

Absolutely nothing to add except these set photos from Ant-Man and The Wasp.  I can only assume that is the lovely Evangeline Lilly sporting Hope van Dyne’s costume.         Marvel comics may currently be a flaming gut wagon of offal but I can still get excited about the upcoming movies.

The Ubiquitous Mr. Wein

Len Wein’s death, last week, affected me on a very personal level.  More than any of the other recent deaths from industry legends.  I didn’t bother to eulogize Mr. Wein because others did it more effectively than I could have.  His numerous credits and awards were well documented.  Everyone knows he was the co-creator of Wolverine, Swamp Thing and many of the second wave of X-men.  There is no point in me rehashing all of that. What left me reeling was the impact he had on my young life as…

Merciful Hera, Wonder Woman Is A Triumph

In less than an hour, I’m heading out the door for a much-needed trip to Norway, via Copenhagen.  Soon, I will be foundering on crabs in the Land of The Ice and Snow, assuming I don’t fall off of a fjord.  But before I leave, let me exhort you, each and every one, to rush out to see Wonder Woman.*  Do it now, catch the matinée!  Take a friend!  Take three!   Seriously, I don’t have time to review the film but director Patty Jenkins has given us pretty much…

Saviturd (Spoiler Free…Mostly)

Despite the not too subtle Doctor Who joke, the season finale of The Flash had several plot points that leave me grousing.  I know, you’re all shocked, right?  Not so much that I couldn’t enjoy it, but come on, how hard is it to write with a tiny smidgen of logic?  I’ll start with the first and most glaring one… Savitar’s plan is complete foo.  He obviously hasn’t thought it through, despite having centuries in which to do so.  OK, how did he become Savitar in the first place?  By…

Only God Can Save You Now

I’ve said a lot of vicious things about Zack Snyder in the past but that’s only because I despise him for taking several very loud, monochrome dumps on characters that I hold very dear.  Despite my antipathy for the man and his “vision”, I would never have wished the sort of personal tragedy he is going through to have been visited upon him.  Losing a child is a horror most of us cannot even fathom.  All biting sarcasm and shit talking aside.  Seriously, we feel for the guy. Principal photography…
