The Clone Wars – The Wrong Jedi Review (SPOILERS)
1 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on March 2, 2013 under Featured, News, Reviews, Star Wars
The future of The Clone Wars is clouded by the Dark Side. We know it's not returning to Cartoon Network, and while people behind the show have spoken about a sixth season, there is still no official word from Disney if it'll show up on Disney XD for a sixth season. So that makes today's season finale, The Wrong Jedi, a possible series finale for the excellent Star Wars series. Thankfully it goes o... more.
Jack the Giant Slayer Review
0 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on February 28, 2013 under Featured, News, Reviews
It seems like forever ago when we heard that Bryan Singer's next film would be Jack the Giant Slayer. Initially, for some reason, I didn't connect the title with Jack and the Beanstalk; possibly because I didn't think Hollywood would actually do a big budget version of that. But Bryan Singer did it, and the result is an incredibly fun and traditional fairy tale that very much evokes the tone of Th... more.
Batman Incorporated #8 Review (SPOILERS)

I'll admit that I'm not the biggest Grant Morrison fan out there. I think he completely ruined X-Men for years with his stupid Magento/Xorn storyline, and his Batman stuff has been hit and miss in my opinion. With Superman, in All Star Superman and Action Comics, he has brought back some of the Silver Age weirdness to the character, and I really like his 5th Dimension stuff he's wrapping up Ac... more.
Book Review: The Northern Star – The Beginning
0 CommentsPosted by Jason Peffley on February 15, 2013 under Podcast, Reviews
It's not often that you find new SciFi writers who are able to crank out page turners on their first go. This is one of them. "The Beginning" is the first novel in a series called "The Northern Star" which takes place in the year 2058. A growing population has consumed every last bit of oil. But instead of a Mad Max scenario, humanity turned to innerspace utilizing a new technology cal... more.
Batman #17 Review (SPOILERS)
1 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on February 12, 2013 under Comics, Featured, News, Reviews
Batman scribe Scott Snyder has earned a lot of good will among comic fans over his run on Detective Comics and now the New 52 core Batman book. When DC launched the New 52, Snyder and artist Greg Capullo weaved an amazing story of lost Gotham with the Court of the Owls, and after a brief filler issue, Snyder dived right into bringing the Joker back into Batman's life after nearly a year of being... more.
Book Review: Into The Black

Into the Black is the first book in a series called Odyssey One. There is no mention of the exact date, but there are hints that lead me to believe it takes place at the end of this century. After WWIII, space has once again become a sandbox to explore. The Odyssey is the very first ship to be installed with a Tachyon drive, effectively allowing it to travel several light years per hop. ... more.
Book Review: The Forever Saga – Flash

Starting today, we're going to start interviewing the authors of the SciFi novels that we read. I think it's important for fans and SciFi readers in general to hear a little bit about the book from the horses mouth. Today we're going to talk about "The Forever Saga: Flash." The author, Sean C. Sousa, actually approached us via our Facebook page a few months ago. I was intrigued because... more.
Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 is the Best Batman Movie Ever. Period.

Back at last year's San Diego Comic Con, when they announced that Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns would be adapted into two PG-13 animated movies; everyone got pretty damn excited. And why wouldn't they be? The Dark Knight Returns was a revelatory four-issue comic series when it was released in the 80s. This... more.
Book Review: Redshirts
0 CommentsPosted by Jason Peffley on January 22, 2013 under News, Reviews
I'm going to be honest for a moment on how I choose books. I go to Amazon, click on books, go to Science Fiction, and then I'll navigate either to "Space Opera" or "High Tech." From here, usually everything with four stars gets added to my wishlist or bought. And that's how I found Redshirts. When you start reading a comedy that you didn't realize was a comedy, you really start to scr... more.
Nickelodeon’s TMNT is Everything Michael Bay’s Should Be
0 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on January 21, 2013 under News, Reviews
A couple of years ago, Viacom bought the TMNT rights away from Peter Laird and immediately promised new shows and movies across their various outlets. The first of these is a CG animated series that premiered on Nickelodeon a few months ago. The first season is halfway done with twelve episodes aired, and after those twelve episodes we can safely say that despite some modernization of the Turtles,... more.
