It’s that time of the year again to gorge ourselves on Turkey and Pumpkin Pie. So with Thanksgiving on Thursday we are taking a little break today from a full post, but I will be back on Friday with new Comic Book Reviews and recovering from Black Friday Shopping. Have a safe and sound Holiday with family and friends.
To help everyone get into the spirit of the holiday I have gathered a collection of Thanksgiving themed comic book covers and a classic Far Side strip. I will start off with a very ironic Black Friday photo that says it all.
Last week was the fall get together for the SC3 (Southern California Classic Collectors) group that is dedicated to preserving and sharing classic home and arcade games for members to enjoy and play. Once again Steve Hertz shared his home and hospitality to the group for the fall gathering. Steve collects arcade machines and has a very impressive collection. They are in really good condition and he has some really rare machines. The other great thing about the get together is that they set up classic game consoles that cover a wide selection. There are the usual suspects like the N64, Nintendo Gamecube, SEGA Dreamcast, SEGA Genesis, NES and Super NES. But there are a lot of other harder to find consoles like ColecoVision, Magnavox Odyssey with the Voice add-on no less, NEC TuboGrafx, and the Nintendo Virtual Boy that … Read More »
This weeks new comic books is in for a really bumpy ride. So hang on for this one.
Image Comics Writer and Artist Ray Fawkes
This book is the winner of the bat shit crazy book of the year. The plot from Image is, Blood rains from the skies. A hypnotic voice trills over the airwaves as bodies shift and grow in horrifying new directions. Are you ready for the new world? RAY FAWKES, acclaimed creator of One Soul and writer of Constantine and Batman: Eternal, launches a terrifying monthly odyssey of madness and warped flesh in this lush, fully-painted debut issue! I honestly don’t where to start on this one. Some are going to say that this book is avant guard or outside the box. If the story was coherent I might be willing to go there but, this book is … Read More »
While Interstellar has been out for over a week I was unable to see it until this last Sunday night and wanted to see it in a full size IMAX theater. I went to see it at the Edwards Irvine Spectrum IMAX theater that opened in 1995 and the screen dimensions are 90 feet wide and 65 feet tall and is one of 3 venues in Southern California that can play both the IMAX film and digital format. The other two being Universal City Walk and Ontario Mills being the other two. The Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood was recently retrofitted with an IMAX screen with its dimensions of 94 feet wide and 46 feet tall.
Interstellar is a film by Christopher Nolan and has over an hour of footage shot in the full IMAX aspect ratio and was entirely shot … Read More »
Because I caught a very late show of Interstellar IMAX last night (10:40 pm show), there is not a full post today. I will post my review and thoughts in the next few days about the film. I want to let the film digest and comment on the sound mix that everyone is talking about.
I will say that if you go see it go to a REAL IMAX theater that is showing the 70mm film presentation with the full size IMAX sequences. It is well worth the admission price.
Here is a full list of the theater that are playing it and the theaters that are showing it on film compiled by my friend Michael Coate over at the Digital Bits.
