So far the Snyder Cut is rather weird

Jennifer split for Padre to have a long weekend with her mom, daughter and friend so I decided to use the time to finally watch the long awaited Snyder Cut of the terrible Justice League. Hmm. I wasn’t expecting this cameo … Continue reading

Wonder Woman 1984: needs more development/editing

It’s a good thing AT&T prepared for a beating by going with this sequel via streaming because 84 was another mediocre DC movie. What a pisser, I really liked the first one plus I was looking forward to the next chapter … Continue reading

RIP Denny O’Neil

Another legendary person who helped mold modern comic books passed away peacefully in his sleep. Denny was a vanguard when it came to writing. Unlike many of his contemporaries at DC Comics, he was a journalist before contributing to Green Lantern … Continue reading

Joker: Worth Seeing

I ran out of true Horror movies to review for this October but given how the last couple years have been a shit show under Orange Foolius, I think this interpretation fits the bill. In short, I liked it immensely … Continue reading

RIP Ernie Colón

Another great guy who worked in Comic Books passed away last week. I never gave his heritage any thought because he went by the Anglo version of Ernesto, ergo, he was an American like Jack “The King” Kirby (Jewish) or … Continue reading

Welcome to July with a shift in timeliness

For the last couple months I have been digging out slowly while sticking mostly to the chronological series of events with the exception of keeping the header art, color scheme and my exercise progression updated. Given the events of last … Continue reading

Shazam! (aka Captain Marvel): Worth Seeing

Finally another notch in the win column for DC. It accompanies Wonder Woman and not the dreadful Justice League, Batman v. Superman, Man of Steel or the by-the-numbers Aquaman. A less-serious adaptation of their Captain Marvel (known as Shazam by stupid people … Continue reading

Aquaman: Worth Seeing*

I initiate Aquaman with an asterisk because it’s good but it just isn’t terribly original while succeeding in making one of DC’s least interesting superheroes watchable, today, in a few years I doubt it. Sure, the character started becoming more appealing when … Continue reading

RIP Norm Breyfogle

Norm passed away a couple months ago but he’s worth mentioning because his Batman comics were a big part of my life when I was a collector. His style was very loose with the cape flowing when Batman was jumping … Continue reading

Wonder Woman doesn’t take crap…

…or more appropriately, some creep trying to grab her just because he’s allegedly good at making deals with Themyscira. I think the Amazons would probably go back into hiding since the West is losing its collective mind given the US … Continue reading

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies: Streaming

Movie number one for my birthday double feature had to be this on its opening weekend. I readily admit the humorous version is growing on me via Hulu. I remain a fan of the serious version first and will always … Continue reading

Tony Todd

Next up from my fun time at GACC, meeting actor Tony Todd! Tony is a staple in numerous Sci-Fi TV shows (Stargate, Babylon 5, The Flash) but he’s probably best known to the general public as titular character in the Candyman … Continue reading

RIP Steve Ditko

Steve Ditko is another famous artist who helped make Marvel Comics a big deal, namely through his co-creation/drawing of Spider-Man. If I recall correctly (and I hope my friend who actually draws comics can chime in), Stan Lee chose Ditko … Continue reading

Superman: Red Son

Part one of three showing Marx’s influence as recognition of his 200th birthday, I’ll start with the Elseworld (DC’s version of Marvel’s What If? comics) story pondering the question; What would the world be like if Superman were raised in the … Continue reading
