‘Independence Day #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Steve Scott | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Having read far too many movie tie-ins in my time, I have a observation to share. Tie-ins that use the source material but add to it, such as storylines that run alongside the main story or ones that […]

‘House of Cards 4×10 – 4×13: Chapters 49-52′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

The end is nigh—or so we think. In the final episodes of House of Cards season four, we come to terms with what’s going on from the start: Claire and Frank never truly loved each other but rather are a political union made for world domination. A modern day Catherine the Great married to Alexander […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The good thing about the Assassin’s Creed universe is that it has almost unlimited potential for stories, due to the Assassins Guild/ Templar Order feud running down through the centuries. You can pretty much use any […]

‘Internet Murder Revenge Fantasy’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“A youth spent coaxing an already-outdated dial-up modem into letting you log on to your favorite MUD, following friends you’d never met from server to server.” Internet Murder Revenge Fantasy is a raw, trippy memoir-cum-comic anthology from Canadian author, game developer (retired), and podcast host Merritt Kopas. Written by Kopas and illustrated by a dizzyingly talented slate of […]

‘Better Call Saul 2×06: Bali Ha’i’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Are you sure about that?” Jimmy and Mike are very different people going through very different things, but the beats of their stories often share a theme. It’s the glue that holds their parallel tales of corruption together, especially since season 2 has them walking paths that seldom intersect. ‘Bali Ha’i’ gives us two stories in […]

‘Vinyl 1×06: Cyclone’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“The logo looks like a toilet.” Bobbie Cannavale and Olivia Wilde are spitting blood, soul, sweat, and venom into this show. With a strong supporting cast (aside from a few weak links like James Jagger) working around them, they form an energized dynamo of human dysfunction that beats and thumps at the heart of the show. For […]

‘The Venture Bros 6×08: Red Means Stop’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“My marriage is falling apart and I’ve been masturbating to hentai because I can’t connect to real people.” ‘Red Means Stop’ is a frustrating conclusion to a frustrating season of television. It introduces a monstrously enjoyable new character in Clancy Brown’s Red Death, a sort of perverse apotheosis for the show’s ideas about the impossibility […]

‘Game of Thrones – Official Collector’s Models: Daenerys Targaryen’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Season 6 of Game of Thrones is almost here, and the hype around the show is at a high right now. While most people are questioning if Jon Snow is really dead, some others may have noticed the Game of Thrones: Official Collector’s Models has been released. Is it worth buying for fans of the […]

‘The Division’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

The Division is turning into an interesting beast, especially for solo players like me. There are so many articles that say it is not designed for single-players alone and that at level 30 it will hit you hard, but at level 26 I’m holding up hope that I can survive it. Why am I sticking […]

‘Murder: The Complete Series’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Joe Dempsie, Karla Crome, Anne-Marie Duff, Peter Bowles, Robert Pugh, Michael Smiley | Written by Robert Jones We tend to get used to the structure of crime based shows, they follow certain rules. With Murder: The Complete Series this is turned on its head by providing the stories in a documentary style, based on interviews after […]

‘The Walking Dead: Collector’s Models’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Models, especially those based on the things we love are popular because they show off our favourite characters and in many ways advertise the things that catch our interest. The Walking Dead: Collector’s Models are a perfect example of this. The first “season” of these models feature some of the most popular people from the […]

’101 Ways to Die’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

One thing that’s really great about this current generation of consoles is the proliferation of indie games that have made their way to both the PS4 and Xbox One. Obviously it’ a trend started by the likes of the XBLA and Steam, but it’s only recently that there truly has been a huge wealth of […]

Everything is Copy: Nora Ephron’s Journey in Writing About Her Life

by Catherina Gioino

Heartburn. When Harry Met Sally… . Sleepless in Seattle. Julia & Julia. None of these films would have been had Nora Ephron not wrote—or sometimes directed—them. Ephron wrote articles for the New York Post, essays for Esquire, scripts for television, and ended up writing several novels and film adaptations of those novels, all that were […]

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Along with Johnny Red, The Troop has consistently been at the top of my list to read whenever a new issue appears. Both books have been of an as high, if not even higher, quality as Marvel […]

‘NXT Greatest Matches Vol.1′ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

NXT is meant to be WWE’s breeding ground, where they build up rookie wrestlers and get them ready for the main show. What they ended up with instead is the start of something that mixes the Indy spirit with WWE money, and threatens to steal the show from the Superstars. With NXT Greatest Matches Vol. […]

‘Better Call Saul 2×05: Rebecca’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s like he was born without the gene for it.” ‘Rebecca’ is a slow burn, an episode in which as much attention is paid to the lighting around Chuck as to the scramble faced by Kim and Jimmy in their respective legal purgatories or to Mike’s dawning realization that half measures leave loose ends. The […]

‘Vinyl 1×05: He In Racist Fire’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Inside every man is another version of himself.” Julie’s just running up to firing Clark when he says it, but his bullshit bit about dopplegangers doubles as a cruelly insightful observation on what’s going on all around him. Clark begging his way into a job as a gofer to avoid his father’s belief that he’s a […]

‘The Venture Bros 6×07: A Party for Tarzan’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“This is exciting, like when we were young and dumb and everything was dangerous and pointy.” It makes perfect sense that a fictionalized Christopher Lambert, the former Highlander himself, is the height of celebrity in the fictional universe of The Venture Bros. His bargain-bin mediocrity is exactly the kind of pitiful societal apogee characters like Rusty […]
