Interstellar Review

Interstellar is one of those films that after viewing you need to take a minute to really digest what you just saw. At a hefty 169 minute run time it is indeed quite a bit to mull over but when the dust settled in my head I was left thinking it was just short of brilliant. I am for a lack of better terms a Nolan fan boy. I’ve never seen a movie of his I did not like and Interstellar continue...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review – A Fractured House

Hydra attempted to push back against S.H.I.E.L.D. in the most recent episode A Fractured House. A group of Hydra agents disguised as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents attacked Capital Hill with a unique weapon that acts just as the Diviner does to its victims. There were a few deaths and some injured during this attack. General Talbot was one of the people injured though I am not sure how he got hurt. Most like...

The Flash Review – Going Rogue

In this weeks episode Going Rogue, The Flash’s most popular villain Captain Cold made an appearance while Barry’s inner circle has apparent trust issues. Let’s first discuss the good with this episode as I am starting to feel a bit of unevenness with this show. The addition of Captain Cold into the fold is a nice welcome. As they broke the kill the villain of the week mold last w...

The Walking Dead Review – Four Walls and a Roof

The Walking Dead continued its dance with the comic book story lines in the most recent episode Four Walls and a Roof. Picking up right where they left off from the week prior. Bob is still in the hands of Gareth and the rest of the cannibals. He is missing a leg, that the cannibals are feasting on. Of course there was definitely something wrong here with Bob as he was quite distressed before he w...

Marvel Announces New Movies

Marvel had a big announcement today in LA and they didn’t disappoint. Not to be left in the dust by recent announcements from the WB on the DC slate of films. Marvel announced a doozy of a set. Below are the titles of upcoming movies on their slate through 2019. They have also announced Chadwick Boseman has been casted as T’Challa aka the Black Panther. While also not confirming the ne...

John Wick Review

John Wick is an absolutely entertaining film that puts Keanu Reeves back on the map as an action star. It may be simplistic in the story department, but how things get kickstarted it’s hard to not feel sentimental. The film is about John Wick, a hitman who has been retired for 5-years because he found that something special in his life. A woman who he gave it all up for to marry. This doesn&...

Gone Girl Review

Unsettling. That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think about Gone Girl. This comes as no surprise as it’s a David Fincher film, the man who directed Se7en. The movie certainly will not make you rethink what you think you know about your wife/girlfriend but it just makes it pretty clear you never know who could be legitimately crazy. Gone Girl is about the disappearance of Am...

Arrow Review – Corto Maltese

There’s about to be an explosion of costume vigilante’s running around on Arrow as more characters are getting training (or had). We finally get to see Thea again as she’s been hiding out on an island off the shore of Africa, Corto Maltese. With Oliver badly wanting his sister back home he takes Roy and Diggle with him to retrieve her. Little to his knowledge she’s there wi...

Killing Floor 2 Interview and Game Details

At this years NYC Comic Con I got to see a demo for the sequel to the hit PC game Killing Floor which is set to hit Steam some time next year. Killing Floor 2 takes place one month after the events from the original game. Players are in continental Europe where Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has caused a massive outbreak that is nearly unstoppable as it spreads through the region, cripp...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review – A Hen in the Wolfhouse

I remember a time last year during the early episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when I was getting frustrated with its mediocrity. I knew the potential in this show as it fell within the Marvel cinematic universe and those movies are of the utmost quality. Well as the first season progressed the show got better, finishing the season better than it started and if I were asked to rate it in one word...

The Flash Review – Things You Can’t Outrun

Each week Barry seems to be growing more and more into his role as Central City’s protector. Not only learning how to physically defeat any of the enemies he faces but to also out think them. In Things You Can’t Outrun, Barry was put to the test with his mind. The villain of the week, the Mist, had the ability to turn his body into gas form. Making it a difficult task for Barry to infl...
