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 […]
I’ll assume it is safe to say that everyone participated in their own Turkey Day Movie Marathon this year? What’s that you ask? You were out shopping on Black Friday instead? For shame. Surely you remember that the real holiday celebrated in November is not that gluttonous meal you attended with your family, but in […]
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, […]
Warning: Spoiler Alert! turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead World Tour Concludes This week’s “Go Getters” concluded the catching-up of our four major locales. In the ever-expanding world of The Walking Dead, with a multitude of characters and locations, the show is definitely doing […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
The boys of the new Hollywood of the 1970’s: De Palma, Spielberg and Scorsese Looking for something to watch this weekend? You could do a lot worse than checking out some of the great Brian De Palma films out there on disc or streaming. Just look at some of the filmography below from one […]
The Prognosis: Doctor Strange was a lot of fun. Disney did a nice job fitting Doctor Strange in with the rest of the Marvel Universe while mainly staying in it’s own story and multiverse construct. The Synopsis: Dr. Stephen Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) life changes after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. […]
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead. “I don’t know what the hell’s going on, in the most wonderful way.” In “The Well” we got the episode I feared we would get for the Season Premiere: the Carol/Morgan update. Episode 2 is a much more […]
The movie starts in a fog-filled graveyard at night with some ominous music. A caretaker sees someone with their back turned standing in the distance, he cautiously approaches and taps the person on the shoulder. With a loud scream, the person turns to reveal a hideous zombie face zooming into the camera and the title Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things appears on the screen.
Turn that Creep-O-Meter up to 10. Not since Ringu have I seen a movie that has made the hair on my arms stand up. That is not the only thing It Follows has in common with Ringu. They are both movies involving curses with the only way to get rid of them is to pass them on to someone else.
