With the new Blade Runner 2049 due to be released later this year I've been obsessively going back over all the related material associated with it including: All 5 versions of the film, the original Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep that it was loosely based on and the comic book adaptation (Yes! [...]
In the previous review on issue #1 I wrote about how I didn’t really enjoy how Stein was approaching the character of Man-Thing – I said the humor just a bit off and just the characterization of Man-Thing was … interesting, but not to my liking. I did however note that I expressed a hope that it could get better and head in a different direction. That has in fact happened. Issue #2 is in fact better and it is in fact headed in a different direction…but only slightly.
STORY BY: Daniel Warren Johnson and R.L. Stine ART BY: German Peralta COLORS BY: Mat Lopes and Rachelle Rosenberg COVER BY: Tyler Crook The much anticipated run by Goosebumps author R.L.

Now [...]
Way back in 2007 How It Should Have Ended put out a little animation about the Lord of the Rings saying that Fellowship should have just flown an eagle into Mordor and dropped the ring into Mt. Doom with little to no fuss. This video is really funny (I've linked it below) especially when you get [...]
Well its Christmas time everyone and nothing says Christmas like Star Wars. And as we know nothing says Star Wars like Bea Arthur and Jefferson Starship! Wait, what? That’s right, the Star Wars Holiday Special, it’s a tradition. A horrible, terrible tradition.
The Star Wars prequels have been the Internet’s whipping boy for quite a long time. People love to trash the prequels. This is understandable because they are not, you know, good. But they’re not exactly bad either, there are some good ideas. Unfortunately these good ideas are squashed under layers of bad dialogue, bizarre racial [...]
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiering on the 18th my nerdself can’t help but obsess in anticipation. So I will be posting several things leading up to the release date. Way back in the early 1970s, unbelievable as it may seem now, no one wanted to make Star Wars. Or as it was originally [...]
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiering on the 18th my nerdself can't help but obsess in anticipation. So I will be posting several things leading up to the release date.
