Back again with part 2 of the Blu-Ray and DVD gift guide. So lets dig into more stuff. If you missed part 1 the click HERE
I missed this one in the short time that it played in theaters over the summer due to the Weinstein Companies fighting with the director over the cut of the film for the US release and dumped it the same day as Transformers 4 opened. This is one of those films that if you just read the plot, it sounds like one of the stupidest sounding films that you could see. I also get worried when a lot of geek websites rave about a niche film only to find out that it didn’t work for you. In this case this film is really impressive. I went into it with no expectations and was really … Read More »

After that many other publishers like Dark Horse, Titan, Dynamite, and Genesis … Read More »
Sorry about not posting on Wednesday. I was a bit under the weather Tuesday night so got some well deserved rest and so everything should be back on track now. So there are new comic book reviews to get to so let’s get cracking.
Bitch Planet #1
Image Comics Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, Artist Valentine De Landro, Colorist Cris Peter, Letterer Clayton Cowles
There was a lot of hype on this book and well that didn’t work out so well. The plot from Image is, 2014 Best Writer Eisner Award nominee KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (PRETTY DEADLY, Captain Marvel) and VALENTINE DE LANDRO (X-Factor) team up for the very third time to bring you the premiere issue of BITCH PLANET, their highly-anticipated women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation riff. Think Margaret Atwood meets inglorious Bastards. I will be honest I was not a fan of DeConnick’s writing on … Read More »
Well it’s that time of the year where the holidays are in full swing and you want to buy something for that special geek boy or geek girl and you may not know what to get or have no idea what they may like. Well I will be putting together some ideas based on things like movies, comics, books, toys, games and gadgets. Some lists might me longer than others and may be spread out over multiple posts.
Today we start with Blu-Ray and DVD. While my preference of choice is definitely Blu-Ray to watch there are going to be some titles that are only going to be available on DVD because of source material for the project or limited sales potential. The list is not going to be in any particular order but there might be groups of titles that might fit together … Read More »
