the 2017 razzies

The 2017 Razzies have now come upon us. Looks like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has a nomination is almost every category (Worst Picture, Worst Actor for both Affleck and Cavill, and Worst Director for Snyder)… I hate being right about this one, but when it was announced back in 2014 I dismissed it immediately as being anything worth substance or worth even watching. Both of the DC Extended Universe movies that came out in 2016 have been nominated for the Worst Picture category, BvS and Suicide Squad.
That is very uncharacteristic, but in my heart of hearts I knew, I knew! Batman V Superman was sooo bad that it made Hans Zimmer quit comic book movies. Thanks Zack… Continue reading

the perky nerd – check it out on magnolia

My friend Tiffany opened up a comic book shop in Burbank called The Perky Nerd. The shop just opened and it is a nice space, it’s not the typical comic book shop in that it also has coffee, hence the “perky.”

They also do table top gaming, heroclix, reading clubs and much more. It’s a very nice atmosphere and space to geek out with your fellow enthusiasts. Continue reading

fear the walking dead – waiting for it to premiere

Fear The Walking Dead is the spin off of The Walking Dead tv show. This spin off must’ve been one of the most highly anticipated ones for this summer. We’re now four episodes in and there’s still nothing I can’t sink my teeth into… Continue reading

ant-man – you’ll believe a man can shrink

Ant-Man is the latest installment into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s about Scott Lang as he becomes the new Ant-Man, but his troubled past catches up with him when he plots a heist with an older inventor bent on saving the world from certain destruction, so this time his criminal skills are put to good use.

The film stars Rudd (as Scott Lang), Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, Tip Harris, Anthony Mackie, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Douglas.

san diego comic con 2015 (photo heavy)

Another comic con has come and gone in beautiful San Diego. This year wasn’t the same, I wasn’t able to walk the floor with my usual buddies. I also didn’t spend hours upon hours waiting in line to get a ticket to wait in another line. The only full day I spent at the convention center was Sunday, and that was bargain hunting day, which worked out pretty well this year.

I went to the premiere of Justice League Gods and Monsters, and the Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment Screening TV Panel.

This year I made it a point to meet up with people, comic con used to be a time where I’d run into friends that I hadn’t seen in a while, or would only see at comic con, now it’s a mad house. I know other friends were there that I didn’t get to see, sorry I wasn’t able to hang out for a bit but there was too much foot traffic.

Thank goodness there wasn’t an exclusive figure at the Hasbro Toy Shop that I had to get this year.

arrow is done – so says season 3 finale

Season 3 of Arrow has not been my favorite, but the season 3 finale episode, My Name is Oliver Queen, has officially done it for me. I will not be returning for season 4, unless there’s some amazingly compelling reason that turns season 3 into a bad dream.

Where to start… where to start… Continue reading

wondercon 2015

Wondercon 2015 has come and gone. It was rather warm this time around. I got to meet up and hang out with a couple of friends, it’s nice geeking out together.

The layout of the exhibition floor was rather chaotic this time around. The vendors where next to artists and other odds and ends, you couldn’t exactly “section” aisles of as, this is where you buy shirts, this is where you buy art… and so on. It’s probably the Anaheim convention center’s layout.
Oh and one thing that bugged me to no end… artist alley had pillars in the aisles, why not have the artist tables with the pillars? Strange just to bump into a pillar.

arrow – suicidal tendencies episode… tell me about it

This week’s episode of Arrow had to mull around in my noggin for a while. But my gut reaction remains the same over the weekend.

Why is Oliver Queen becoming Batman? And why is the Atom Iron Man?
Let me explain, Oliver or “The Arrow,” is now the latest obsession of Ra’s al Ghul. In that Ra’s wants Oliver to take his place as the head of the League of Shadows. You also have his daughter Nyssa around in the happenings of Starling City. I get it, it’s gritty, a lot of stuff takes place at night, you have vigilante justice with a code, there are criminals in every nook and cranny, but Green Arrow is NOT Batman. Continue reading

double feature – knowing is half the battle, until all are one

This weekend was my birthday weekend, and I spent it in nostalgia. Starting off with the Back to the Future art show, a movie that I cannot say enough about, but was (and is) a big part of my childhood. But then on Saturday evening… a couple of my friends went to the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood to see a double feature of Transformers: The Movie and G.I. Joe: The Movie! Continue reading
