THE HERALD OF GALACTUS #3: DC Comics Reboot

THE HERALD OF GALACTUS #3: DC Comics Reboot

After touching on it my last issue, I thought I would talk more about DC’s universe-wide reboot that is set to take place after Flashpoint ends in September. A rumour surfaced via Bleeding Cool that the company will be taking all of their books back to issue #1. Some people in the comic industry assumed this was just a rumour […]

Frank Darabont gives an update on Walking Dead season 2

Frank Darabont gives an update on Walking Dead season 2

The first season of The Walking Dead was brilliant, a few missteps aside. It was refreshing to see a gore-drenched Romero homage on television, even though the series struggled to top Frank Darabont’s near-perfect pilot. However, the finale left dead-heads everywhere craving more, so it’s good to know that AMC are expanding the second season from six to twelve episodes. […]

MOVIE/TV ROUND-UP: Super 8, The Hangover 3, Daredevil, Ninja Turtles, Django, This is Forty, CSI, Breaking Bad

It hasn’t been a bad summer season at the movies. Thor and X-Men: First Class defied expectations and even the fourth Pirates flick did well critically. Super 8 looks set to maintain the quality and reviews have been extremely positive. J.J. Abram’s homage to the Spielberg films of yesteryear is primed to open big. A release of a poster isn’t […]

REVIEW: Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (2011)

REVIEW: Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (2011)

There is green fever at the moment, Green Lantern fever to be more precise. With Ryan Reynolds playing the big screen version of the DC Comics hero later this month (17th June), the tie-ins have started to surface. One of the more interesting is the release of Green Lantern: Emerald Knights on Blu-Ray. The latest offering from DC’s animated division […]

Return to LV-426 with Aliens: Colonial Marines

Return to LV-426 with Aliens: Colonial Marines

When you think about it, the FPS would be nothing without James Cameron. Is there a single shooter made in the last 10 years that didn’t reference his iconic Aliens? The sci-fi masterpiece is a quarter-century old, but its popularity never dwindles. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before another video game used the license. Aliens: Colonial Marines […]

Will the real George Lucas please stand up?

Will the real George Lucas please stand up?

Ever wondered how George Lucas can define a generation with the untouchably classic Star Wars trilogy (1977-1983) before single-handedly destroying his entire legacy with the abominable prequel trilogy (1999-2005)? Well, how about… the real George Lucas is locked away in a dungeon. In the 1980s, an imposter kidnapped him and has posed as George Lucas ever since. He’s kept the […]

Catwoman draws her claws in the new Arkham City trailer

Catwoman draws her claws in the new Arkham City trailer

Batman: Arkham Asylum was brilliant – the best video game based on a comic book to date. The forthcoming sequel, Arkham City, looks even better. The latest trailer gives us a another look at the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery in action. Along with the Joker (who is being voiced by Mark Hamill for the final time), we can also expect […]

Trailer Trash #3: Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959)

Trailer Trash #3: Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959)

Don’t you just love trashy trailers for 1950s B-movies? There’s the droll ham radio voices; the screaming damsels; and the inappropriately OTT music scores… what’s not to love?! Well, the movies themselves, obviously, but hey, you can’t have everything. It’s very difficult to watch a B-movie trailer without getting a whiff of Ed Wood, but this sort of schlock is […]

Get a better look at the Dragon Tattoo trailer

Get a better look at the Dragon Tattoo trailer

Hot on the heels of the bootleg, we have the official trailer for David Fincher’s greatly anticipated US remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (and that provocative French poster to the left). Is it unnecessary? Maybe, but I don’t hold the Swedish original in high regard; too flawed to be a true classic. Fincher’s rendition looks like a […]
