Powerless: Parks and Wreck

For every super fight, there is a city. For every awesome altercation, there is destruction, and largely comic book films have only just begun addressing the fact that heroes like to break stuff. The good guys win and the bad guys get sent away to Arkham or some frightening super-max designed specifically for villain shenanigans. […]

Marvel’s Agent Carter: A Heroine in the making

Captain America is probably the most iconic superhero next to Iron Man, and Marvel’s move to play them against each other is a wise one. However, that doesn’t mean Cap and Iron Man don’t have long, storied histories. The First Avenger did a lot to solidify his reputation as the do-good freedom fighter with a […]

Galavant: You have to Watch this Strange and Friendly Fairy Tale Mess

Monty Python, A Knight’s Tale, and Princess Bride are among some of my favorite movies of all time. Monty Python for its absurd and referential humor, A Knight’s Tale because it’s a classic underdog story scored by classic rock, and finally, Princess Bride because it’s a genuinely warm adaptation of a good book. So it’s […]

This War of Mine: A Bleak Tale of a City in War Times

Marko looked through the little keyhole in the grocery store. He heard two voices as he entered the broken shop, and it scared him. What he saw was a soldier, harassing a young woman who was just scavenging. He didn’t hesitate even when the man held an AK. Marko burst through the door, the soldier […]

Saga: Explicit, Violent, Sweet, Instant Classic

There’s a reason why I wasn’t that excited for the new Star Wars movie. The lightsaber didn’t surprise me, and it seems like a cool idea anyways. And sure, the general reaction to the black stormtrooper had me scratching my head, but other than that, Star Wars isn’t what defines sci-fi and space operas for […]

The New Year Show Round-Up

Woo! It’s been a while since we’ve updated, and that’s totally my fault. I haven’t been working the hardest in many things, and at the same time, the holidays just piled on relentlessly. So, instead of doing the single posts and reviews, I wanted to make a bunch of mini-reviews for all the wicked shows […]

Weeky Comic Round Up: All Star Superman an Old School Super Powered Fool

Doomed Planet. Desperate Scientists. Last Hope. Superman. Superman’s a difficult character to write for. He’s omnipotent; having a huge set of powers while being almost indestructible. He’s also got his moral compass constantly pointing north. It’s hard not to find him boring because he’s the archetypical hero; strong, humble, and he stands for the American […]

The Strain: Slow Boiling Action Bonanza

Boy, Guillermo Del Toro is getting a lot of gigs lately, and I’m truly happy for the guy. I’m a bit of a fanboy when it comes to his work, and that’s mostly because his earlier films were brilliantly poetic horror films. I could probably throw in Edgar Allen Poe right in there too, but […]

Weekly Comic Round Up: Sex Criminals

I want to take a step back, think for a bit, and if you’re willing to overlook that title for a minute, then I want you to take a step back with me. Not too long ago, a bill regarding reproductive education was in the works here in the Philippines. It would have provided a […]

Reviewing the Indies: Thomas was Alone

Thomas, was alone. But not for long. I like complicated games. The top titles I fell in love with last year were the Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, and Gone Home, which will get its own review soon. Sometimes though, complicated titles that deal with survival, meta theories about gaming, or dealing with your sexuality […]
