Movie Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

The Ghostbusters Abby (Melissa McCarthy), Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), Erin (Kristen Wiig) and Patty (Leslie Jones) inside the Mercado Hotel Lobby in Columbia Pictures' GHOSTBUSTERS.
The original Ghostbusters is one of the first movies I really remember seeing. It was 1985-and I know that it came out in 1984, but I lived in the middle of nowhere at the time and it took movies a bit to get out there-and the entire theatre was into the movie, like cheered for ... more

Comic Review: Archangel #1

Archangel_01-cvr-659x1000
Quick Review: Worth picking up. Not perfect, but a compelling read by a master of one form moving to another. WWII, time-travel, espionage, and betrayal all wrapped up in a tight narrative. TL;DR Review: I tend to run a few months (or years) behind in comics, but sometimes a new book will come out that ... more

Not a eulogy for Prince

prince_the_new_power_generation-7_s
People are done eulogizing Prince. People are done sharing their favorite Prince songs, stories, and pieces of video. A lot of it is very good and some of it is spectacular. The video of Prince’s solo during the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and the video of Prince showing up Michael Jackson at a James Brown ... more

Mike Mignola’s book of supernatural investigators in the Hellboy universe. Like Hellboy the movie without Hellboy the character. Though, the comic takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where ... more

Sentenced(Luke): 2016.03.13 edition

A pity – given the unlimited opportunities which the media landscape now offers to the wayward imagination, I feel we should immerse ourselves in the most destructive element, ourselves, and swim. The Atrocity Exhibition by J. G. Ballard Presented without comment. ... more

Prediction: GHOSTBUSTERS!?!

The Ghostbusters Abby (Melissa McCarthy), Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), Erin (Kristen Wiig) and Patty (Leslie Jones) inside the Mercado Hotel Lobby in Columbia Pictures' GHOSTBUSTERS.
Luke: I was a little excited about this movie. I have fond, fond memories of the original and thought there was alway some more legs in the idea of mad, crazy scientists hunting ghosts. The gender-swap is icing. But, then they messed with my lunch time for a month or so. They shot a bunch of ... more
