Hey! We’re back with our news post series, albeit a bit revised. We’re going weekly instead of daily, and we’re adding more news stories. So, less and more at the same time. Yay! Now sit back and take a gander at all the stories that are Old News Now!Continue reading Knuckles, Dimes, AI and Venture Bros?
Being a fan can really suck sometimes. You find something which speaks to you on a level you yourself don’t fully understand, it brings you joy. You start buying stuff related to it. You own the movies, the comics, you watch the videos of the games because you don’t have time to play them all. It becomes part of your identity, loving anything even remotely related to it. You see more people start loving it, or maybe they already did, and people with money notice. Now they start pumping serious money into it. The real test begins, do enough people love it for the same reasons you do? If so, you are in luck, you are going to be getting so much content you won’t be able to keep up, I promise. If not…well, then you are in a tight spot. God help you if the general audience doesn’t just “not care” but actively condemns what you love. Now you can get ready for an onslaught of, you’re wrong, I don’t trust your opinion, and the general assumption that you don’t know what you are talking about.Continue reading James and the Giant Problem

Hey guys! Due to some technical difficulties we don’t have a new episode for you this week, so we thought we would jump in our time travel machine that’s suspiciously shaped like a police box and go back to our Batman V. Superman episode, which featured special guests Alex Marshall-Brown and Armond Richards. It was a blast to record and we all managed to survive the brawl between the supes and the bat. See you next week with a new episode!
ARMOND RICHARDS | AMERICA SCORES LAContinue reading RERUN EP #151 – Batman V Superman: Extended Cut
Imagine a time when comic book movies were not even a genre and the idea that they would dominate the box office would be laughable. Imagine a time when a film based on a comic book was seen to be a huge risk. That time is 1978 and a film was on the horizon that would change American Cinema forever. That film was Superman. At this point the most well known comic book adaptation was the live action Batman starring Adam West. The campy series was the exact opposite of what producers Ilya Salkind, Alexander Salkind and Pierre Spengler wanted to achieve. The development of Superman is the stuff of legend and borderline insane.Continue reading A bird? A plane? It’s 40 years of Superman!

Go see this movie. Don’t make me have to hurt you.
As you must know by now, Wonder Woman is almost here. The big marketing push hasn’t begun yet, making some nervous that the studio isn’t going to support the film as much because it has a female lead. Others are dismissing the concerns, asserting that the marketing barrage will begin as soon as Guardians 2 hits theaters and stops sucking the air out of the room.
“Why does this even matter?” You may ask. “If the movie is good, it will make money. If it’s bad, it won’t! So stop worrying and go to the movies.”
If that is what you’re saying, you’re probably a dude.
I plan to see this movie about a dozen times, whether it’s good or not. Don’t get me wrong – I hope with all of my being that it’s amazing and blows every other superhero film right out of the water, but it’s getting my dollars even if it turns out to be worse than that one really terrible Batman movie (you pick which one).
I’ll explain. It starts at the beginning:
Emily Blake writes screenplays with lots of fight scenes. She is a vocal advocate for feminism, polyamory, kink, and sex positivity. She makes most of her money as a script supervisor for film and television, but she also makes cosplays for clients out of her little apartment in Los Angeles.
Hey everyone! Ryan here, emerging from the Comic Corner to bring you 2016’s TOP 7 LEAST-WORST COMIC BOOK MOVIES.
To keep it from being any longer, I only included the live action theatrical releases, so no mention of Batman: The Killing Joke on this list. They were easy to rank at the top, but the rest were engaged in a nosedive race to the bottom.
I gave it my best shot anyway, enjoy!

SORRY FOR THE DELAY! Without further adieu here’s this week’s episode. Alex Marshall-Brown and Armond Richards join us to discuss the divisive BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE: EXTENDED CUT. Like the film, our discussion runs a little long so if superhero talk is your jam, then you’re in luck!
