Belated Reviews: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

July 12th, 2016

Holidays are usually when we get together with family and sit around most of the day and watch bad movies. This time out, my brother-in-law saw this on pay-per-view and had never heard of it so wanted to give it a watch.

My wife and I had, of course, heard of it, although I hadn’t heard any reviews of the movie itself, but I didn’t have a particularly good feeling about it.  I mean, zombies in early 19th century London?  Not two things that I traditionally think of as going well together.

But we watched it anyhow and… well… here’s my review.

Comic Review: Extraordinary X-Men #1-5 (2016)

July 9th, 2016

Oh look, it’s the adjective X-Men!  Our favorite band of merry mutants starts a new title by Jeff Lemire and Humberto Ramos.

Extraordinary X-Men, at least judging by the name, hopes to be something special, not just your run of the mill New or Uncanny or even Astonishing, but can it measure up to those lofty goals?  Let’s find out as I look at the first arc of this new book.

TV Thursday: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 (2016)

July 7th, 2016

I defended this show when no one else would, back during the first half of the first season when everyone hated it.  I saw something in it that pretty much no one did, at least until Captain America: Winter Soldier came along and all of a sudden, it was the hottest thing around. But since then, I’ve found plenty of times to question the direction they’re going in and this season was no exception to that rule. Therefore, let’s take a look at the third season of Marvel’s premiere TV series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Cartoon Review: Justice League/Unlimited

July 3rd, 2016

One nice thing about the coming of summer is that a lot of TV shows end and not a lot begin, so there’s plenty of time to catch up on other things that we’ve been meaning to watch.  After seeing a couple of DC animated movies lately, we decided to sit down and watch the entire Justice League and Justice League Unlimited series, 91 episodes in total, just to get some Bruce Timm goodness.

Comic Review: Teen Titans Annual #1 (2015)

July 2nd, 2016

I just did a review of Teen Titans up to #8 and following that is the continuation of the story in Teen Titans Annual #1.  So, before I continue on with the story, I have to jump over and review the annual because it isn’t a side story, it isn’t a one-shot, it’s actually an integral part of the plot.

Now you might think I’d hate that, after all, annuals have traditionally been stand-alone stories that didn’t affect the regular storyline, but honestly, I’m fine with it. I was going to get it anyhow, it’s just an extended issue that tells a good portion of the ongoing story and having it be part of the story doesn’t pull you out of the plot.  So let’s get started.
