2016: A Savage Year In Music

ModCon02
0
ModCon02 returns to active duty at Echoba.se with a look back at his favorite music from 2016 – this most savage of years. Be warned, comrades: heartache and wrenching change lie ahead.   2016 was a rough year. I’m sorry if that’s redundant or not particularly insightful, but, well… it needs to be said. For […]

The Walking Dead S7E8 Review: “Hearts Still Beating”

Sam

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, if you have, well then come on in. TWD ended its midseason run with (another) 90 minute episode. At this point it’s unusual for the show to only be 60 minutes, including commercials.  The bloated run-time is likely a side-effect of the expansive […]

Last night, I hit the multi-plex with Lady_Lorelai and Queseramara to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them… and was underwhelmed. BE WARNED, this review contains SPOILERS. Wiizzy Wiig made a crack on Facebook that I’d have the same baffling reaction to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as I did to The Man […]

The Walking Dead S7E7 Review: Sing Me a Song

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.   So I guess Carl is Negan’s apprentice now (and I mean that in the Star Wars sense). What we saw take shape this week was basically the missing Obi Won (Rick) and the present Vader (Negan) vying to […]

The Walking Dead S7E6 Review: Swear

Warning: Spoiler Alert! turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.     Well, sand walkers were cool. It was also nice to see some beach terrain in TWD (sorry Fear the Walking Dead, I don’t count you). A colony of ultra-cautious women? Neat idea. Tara being dropped into it?  Okay, […]

The Walking Dead S7E4 Review: “Service”

Sam
0
Minor Spoilers Ahead! Although tonight’s 90-minute episode was titled “Service,” a more appropriate title may have been: “The Rape of Alexandria.” Tonight we sat back and watched Negan and his band of merry thugs come into Alexandria and take half of everything they owned. Oh, and Negan gets to define what “half” means. Fairness is […]

Comparing Doctor Strange: Comic Book vs Movie

Only Good Things Deserve “Cumberbatch-ing” There are few things a real comic book fanboy can do to get his superhero rush jonesing more than watching the Doctor Strange movie. They are the following: Getting art lessons from Steve Ditko, actually receiving real super powers, and dating someone that gets your juices flowing – in that […]

The Walking Dead S7E3 Review: “The Cell”

Spoilers Ahead! The Walking Dead universe again got bigger this week, this time introducing us to the Savior’s Sanctuary with an episode of the D’s: Daryl and Dwight. Both are men of few words. Both have difficulty connecting with others. Both love crossbows, motorcycles, and angel-wing vests (heck, even the same ones, because sharing is […]
