AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Movie Trailer is Epic!

I’m sure if you’re reading this you’ve watched, and likely rewatched, this trailer. It’s epic as all hell and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building towards this film for a very long time. While this new trailer is jam-packed with awesomeness, it really didn’t reveal too much or spoil anything. That’s a pretty rare occurrence these days with trailers spoiling just about everything anymore. So yeah, props to Marvel and Disney for showing some restraint. That said, it would probably be wise to skip any new trailers that will inevitably surface. And come on, do you really need...

JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Review – A Step in the Right Direction

Art by Mike McG Note: I just can’t give JUSTICE LEAGUE a proper review without spoiling a few eggs. Consider yourself warned. There’s an age old battle going on between DC and Marvel. Sometimes DC is on top. Sometimes Marvel is on top. But that’s the old way of thinking. Things were simpler when the two rival companies pretty much just made comic books and cartoons. Today, one needs to also consider film, TV, and video games. In my humble opinion, DC and Marvel are on equal footing when it comes to comics. DC may have a slight advantage ever since...

RAMPAGE Movie Trailer – What the Hell is This!?

What the fuck am I looking at? Is this a sequel to the sequel to JUMANJI? JUMANJ3? I’m pretty good at defending bad movie ideas and finding the silver lining, but a RAMPAGE movie based on the video game of the same name? A lot of you reading this may never have even heard of this game let alone have any nostalgic attachment. Usually movies based on video games have the advantage of brand recognition. Not sure RAMPAGE is going to sell tickets on nostalgia alone. Ok, I’ve calmed down a bit. Silver lining time. I love big monster...

Top 5 Comic Book Picks: October 2017

1.PAPER GIRLS #16 / Image Comics Written by Brian K. Vaughan / Art by Cliff Chiang I can’t really talk about this issue without spoiling things for those not caught up. Issue #16 is the beginning of a brand new story arc and things have made an interesting turn that will forever change this book. I’m sure you’ve read SAGA, also by Brian K. Vaughan. Do yourself a favor, and read PAPER GIRLS too. It’s pretty excellent. 2. DARTH VADER #6 / Marvel Comics Written by Charles Soule / Art by Giuseppe Camuncoli Damn this new ongoing DARTH VADER book...

Marvel’s Deadpool 2 Teaser Goes Full Bob Ross

Not 100% sure how Bob Ross would feel about this trailer, but I imagine he’d be cool with it. He was pretty damn chill, and he had pet squirrels. If you listened to the latest episode of the NEVER ENDING RADICAL DUDE Podcast, you would have a pretty damn good idea how I feel about the current state of the X-Men film franchise. In short, I’m pretty sure the DEADPOOL films are our best bet to see iconic versions of our favorite heroes. Admit it, Colossus looks pretty damn awesome in DEADPOOL. I can only hope that DEADPOOL exists...

Brand New STAR WARS Trilogy Announced!

According to a press release posted on StarWars.com, The LAST JEDI director Ryan Johnson has been hired to write and direct the first film in a brand new STAR WARS trilogy. Most interestingly, the new trilogy will not be part of the numbered “Skywalker” series. That’s right, we are about to get a new trilogy set in an undefined time and starring and undefined cast. The speculation for this thing is going to be off the charts until we get more information. You can check out the entire press release HERE It’s still not 100% clear if Disney is...

Fox’s THE NEW MUTANTS Looks Like a Damn Horror Movie!

Ever since DEADPOOL, I’ve been excited to see more X-MEN spin-off films. DEADPOOL 2? GAMBIT? THE NEW MUTANTS? Bring it on! Buuuuuut, this trailer for THE NEW MUTANTS kind of has me worried. While I appreciate the bold move to craft a horror film set in the current X-MEN film universe, something about this new trailer has me worried. Mainly, it just doesn’t look good and does not feature iconic versions of these cool comic book heroes. The prospect of seeing live-action versions of Magik, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Sunspot, and Cannonball is pretty exciting, but not like this. Maybe I’m...

New BLACK PANTHER Trailer Kicks All the Asses

Marvel just doesn’t know how to slow down. They are in the business of making one completely amazing superhero film after the other. Having that sweet sweet Disney money behind their new films can’t hurt either. I could list all the wonderful films existing in the AVENGERS movie-verse, but that would take all day. Instead, let’s just watch this new BLACK PANTHER trailer over and over again…forever. While I’m concerned that BLACK PANTHER is being release in “dump month”, everything about this new trailer makes me believe this is going to be epic. One day soon I think there...

Top 5 Comic Book Picks For September 2017

1.MARVEL LEGACY #1 / Marvel Comics Written by Jason Aaron / Art by Esad Ribic It’s comics like these that make me think Marvel is finally on the right track again. Then again, part of me thinks it’s just Jason Aaron being a bad ass as usual. He gets it. Marvel Legacy is a one-shot issue that looks at the entire Marvel Universe giving readers a good look at the big picture. This issue felt iconic, read smoothly, and had a few tricks up its sleeve. Yes there is at least one banana huge revelation to be found within...

The CW’s RIVERDALE Season 1 Review

Art by Matt Harding Should I be ashamed to say I watch a shit ton of shows on The CW? I mean, my 30 something ass is  definitely not their target audience, yet here I am watching a bunch of beautiful 20 somethings act like high schoolers. I’m so confused. But alas, I like what I like and there is a lot to enjoy on The CW including ARROW, FLASH, SUPERGIRL, SUPERNATURAL, and THE 100. Well, you can now add RIVERDALE to that list because this debut season was pretty damn fun. Sigh… Here’s the deal, I’m not a...

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Movie Trailer

Thought we would share this because…ya know…STAR WARS. That said, I think I may be going in fresh for this one. Besides the fact director Rian Johnson warned it may be a bit too spoilery, I’m curious if I have the ability to hold off for 2 damn months. Chances are I’ll cave, but a nerd can dream. Can you imagine going into this without seeing any of the trailers? Could be cool. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI releases December 15th, 2017. Or ya know, December 14th at 7pm.

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE Movie Review

Art by Jean Chen KICK-ASS, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, and THE KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE are some of the coolest action flicks to come out in the past 10 years. What do they all have in common besides being cool as hell? Director Matthew Vaughn of course. The dude hasn’t directed many films, but his track record so far makes my ears perk up whenever I see he’s attached to a new project. Directing a sequel to THE KINGSMAN was a pretty great idea, and it paid off. THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is just as fun, wild, and excessively violent as...

New RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 Trailer

I don’t need to sell you on a sequel to RED DEAD REDEMPTION. Ok, technically it’s a prequel, but you know what I mean. Rockstar’s RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 has been revealed to be a prequel starring a brand new gunslinger named Arthur Morgan as he crosses paths with the Van der Linde gang that series veterans will already be familiar with. While the above trailer isn’t quite “gameplay”, it does give us a good sense of the graphical style and overall tone of the game. Expect excessive violence, horse wrangling, fights on top of trains, heists, gross and...
