It has been announced that The Punisher Netflix series Season One will premiere sometime this year. This announcement comes directly from Marvel as they announced four new cast members for the first season.
If you’re a fan of the Underworld series, you won’t be disappointed. It hasn’t changed at all over the past 14 years, and hasn’t bothered to modernize in any way since its last sequel 5 years ago. For those expecting more, there is a small glimmer of hope Blood Wars may not be a standalone movie. […]
I’ve never read A Monster Calls, but if the traditional ratio of quality from books to movies is any indication, the film has inspired me to pick up the children’s book. For those who never read the book, I won’t spoil it. Having come fresh eyed from the film, I felt the journey was easily the […]
2016 has become known to many as something of a tragic year for celebrities and public personalities. The entertainment industry seems to have had more than its share of deaths this past year, with the world suffering losses of the likes of Prince, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, George Michael and many others.
If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead television show and you pay attention to entertainment news, it will come as no surprise the program’s ratings have been dropping like zombies beneath a hail of machine-gun fire. In all fairness, the show is still pulling in more than 10 million viewers, most of whom are […]
Greetings, Nate the Nerdarch here, and I wanted to let you know of a trio of artists headed for a cruise this January. Some of the crew from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be there on the Fan2Sea comic con cruise 2016 (well it sails in January 2017 but you better book your cabin […]
If you’re not familiar with the Al Swearengen character, then you must not have watched much, if any, of the HBO western drama Deadwood which ran for three seasons some years back. In a show known for its coarse language, Al Swearengen as portrayed by Ian McShane, was the coarsest of the coarse. In other […]
The Eye of the Beholder movie promises to be a nostalgia inducing trip through the stories, influences, and history of the art that inspired decades of Dungeon & Dragon players. For those of you not getting the title the eyes of the beholder meaning originally comes from the Greeks (like most of everything else) and […]
Everybody knows Marvel is releasing a Dr. Strange movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch next month, but did you know there was a Dr. Strange movie for television way back in 1978? It’s true. Peter Hooten starred as Dr. Strange, looking more than a little like Gabe Kaplan in the TV show Welcome Back, Kotter. Also, Hooten’s […]
1983 was a big year for me. Over the summer I turned 14, and in the fall I would begin ninth grade, kicking off my high school years as a freshman. But more importantly, it was a big year for my role-playing habits. TSR’s sci-fi game Star Frontiers had been out for a year and […]
This month 30 years ago, a movie decades ahead of its time came out in theaters. I am talking about Big Trouble in Little China, directed by John Carpenter. At the time, Carpenter was perhaps at the top of his game. He was coming off a streak of what in an earlier age could have […]
It is happening. A shiny, new hope, a chance for our hobby, our joy to be shown in thousands of theaters across the US and the World. The die of cinema is being rolled again for Dungeons and Dragons! Yeah, yeah, yeah. You are not impressed because you have heard all this before. Rumors have […]
With the live-action Transformers movies of the last decade, it can be easy for some fans to forget the franchise was originally a cartoon series back in the 1980s, a series based upon a line of toys produced by Hasbro. Also, some fans might be too young to know about the old cartoons, and they […]
Long before Civil Wars, Spider-Man clones, Infinity Gauntlets, Secret Wars and movie franchises, Marvel Comics drew in readers with what today would be considered relatively simple story telling, but story telling that packed a punch. Most issues of a comic book told a story that could stand on its own instead of branching out across […]
Yes, this week I’m doing something silly. The idea occurred to me during a recent road trip. Behind the wheel of a car for hours on end, I had to have something to think about, and a Fifth Edition D&D version of Forrest Gump came to mind. Once I started thinking about it, Gump has […]
