Primal: Created by Genndy Tartakovsky. With Aaron LaPlante, Laëtitia Eïdo, Fred Tatasciore, Imari Williams. A caveman and a dinosaur bond over shared tragedy and work together to survive in a perilous prehistoric world. I somehow never reviewed this show, and now that it’s over I fully regret not mentioning every season. It’s a show about a guy that loses everything, who then finds a companion to keep him company, a companion that had a similar loss and is a lot more bitey about the situation. I say it’s over, and maybe the main storyline is, but from what I’m hearing...


Dr. Strange

Dr. Strange: Directed by Philip DeGuere Jr.. With Peter Hooten, Clyde Kusatsu, Jessica Walter, Anne-Marie Martin. A psychiatrist becomes the new Sorcerer Supreme of the Earth in order to battle an evil Sorceress from the past. It’s a made for TV that I believe was intended to be the pilot to a TV show, but it never got picked up. For the time it was released, this is a pretty solid fantasy story with all sorts of familiar elements that i’m sure modern audiences would recognize but not especially appreciate too much due to the budget and filming style. It’s...

In the art-forward manner of storytelling, watch an eclectic group of artists interpret the stories from the unique minds of Ewoks in a manner only they can envision! This can’t-miss issue for Star Wars fans of mirth, merriment and artistry is the book you’ve been craving!

0 Young Sentinels (Wearing the Cape #3)

The reward for a job well done is another job. After the Sentinels’ takedown of the second incarnation of Villains Inc., things are relatively quiet in the great metropolis of Chicago. Astra, aka Hope Corrigan, is able to breathe a little, to hang out with her friends, and even to attend classes (where her professors are starting to think she is a myth). But Blackstone is loading more training and responsibilities on her, and converging events threaten the compromises she has made to balance her superhero career and student life and to protect her family and friends. Worse, a new...


Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance: Directed by Mark Neveldine, Brian Taylor. With Nicolas Cage, Violante Placido, Ciarán Hinds, Idris Elba. Johnny Blaze, tortured by the Ghost Rider’s curse, gets a chance of redemption through protecting the Devil’s son, whose father is pursuing him. The second movie with Nicolas Cage playing ol’ hot head, but they’ve changed the origin, forgotten all the characters from the first movie, and moved production over to Romania. I have no idea why they chose to do that, but the changes were jarring and Nick Cage was weird as possible, which worked for me, but I...


Bite Me: Big Easy Nights (Wearing the Cape Series Book #1.5)

It was supposed to be a working vacation… For Jacky Bouchard (aka, Artemis: vampire, former night-stalking dark avenger, and reluctant superhero), a trip to the Big Easy was a chance to solidify her new Bouchard identity, meet the grandmother she didn’t know she had, and do a favor for the New Orleans Police Department by helping them keep an eye on their local vampires. Watching a bunch of fashion-obsessed goths with fangs should have been easy, but now she’s dressing in black and sleeping in a coffin even though living the whole Fiend of The Night stereotype makes her want...


Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider: Directed by Mark Steven Johnson. With Matt Long, Raquel Alessi, Brett Cullen, Peter Fonda. When motorcycle rider Johnny Blaze sells his soul to the Devil to save his father’s life, he is transformed into the Ghost Rider, the Devil’s own bounty hunter, and is sent to hunt down sinners. I’m on a very slow mission to buy all the movies that Stan Lee is in, which is obviously going to lead me to owning nearly all of the legacy Marvel films like “The Trial of the Incredible Hulk” and “The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”. So...


Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: Directed by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein. With Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith. A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers embark on an epic quest to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people. I swear I saw this opening weekend, but I’m just now getting around to logging it here. Imagine you’re at the game table with 5 of your friends playing a campaign for the 50th weekly session. The DM takes all the notes from your sessions, gives...


Villains Inc. (Wearing the Cape #2)

FIGHTING THE FUTURE. Astra has finished her training and is now a full-fledged Sentinel, but things are not going well. She suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and the public revelation of her relationship with Atlas has caused her popularity to nose-dive.To complicate things, the Teatime Anarchist’s intervention has changed the course of events–leaving her with lots of knowledge about the way the future was before the Big One, a complete future-history that is now out of date. And just when she thinks she’s getting a handle on things, unfolding events (a bank-robbery and a horrific murder) show that one of...
