Thor is a Woman But This Woman Couldn’t Care Less

Thor is a Woman But This Woman Couldn’t Care Less

Thor_5

Thor is soon to be a woman, as a woman I’m expected to stand up and cheer. I’m not impressed. In fact, I’m even less impressed because Marvel chose The View as the place to make that announcement. I smell a PR bid.

Also The Falcon, aka Sam Wilson, is taking over as Captain America from Rogers which means, as the headlines proclaimed loud and long, that “a black man will carry the Captain…

American Anime RWBY Is Back and Is That Wolverine?

American Anime RWBY Is Back and Is That Wolverine?

Okay, Most of us (anime fans) have acknowledged the technically RWBYis not an anime in the sense that the term was originally born. The show has been called an anime due to the fact that it is done with an art style that is heavily anime / manga influenced and the producers, Rooster Teeth, pay more than a bit of attention to styling the over all show after anime. However, with the recent…

Back before the WWW or world wide web as we know it, before HTML and CSS and PHP and the almost universal use of email over the USPS (or other country postal services), we had individuals who ran servers from home you could dial into and get access to the predecessor to what we know today. This was called BBS or bulletin board systems and it was,…

Doctor Who S8E1: “Deep Breath”

Doctor Who S8E1: “Deep Breath”

"I was being chased by a giant dinosaur but I think I managed to give the slip."

“I was being chased by a giant dinosaur but I think I managed to give the slip.”

Before the premiere of Season (Series outside of the United States) 8 of Doctor Whothis past weekend, Steven Moffat indicated there would be a tonal shift in the show. The stated reason was to keep the storytelling fresh and interesting, and to allow for the show to go in new directions. This all makes sense and I…

Review: Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is really, really good. Let me just start like that. No game in recent memory has made me more willing to be drawn into its world as quickly, and kept its claws deep long after the credits rolled. From the moment I jumped into the intro stage, the music started blaring, and I swung that shovel, there was no stopping.

One of few kickstarter success stories, Shovel Knightis a 2D…

One of the most interesting bits of trivia I know and like to share is the inventor of the television. He was not Thomas Edison. He was a lax-Mormon named Philo T. Pharnsworth. When I brought up his name to my mother, she said, “I knew the Pharnsworth’s.” Both Philo and my mother were from Provo, UT.

Philo is that rare kind of genius that sees things and then…

“Heroes In A Hack-Shell”

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman

Screenplay by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec

And Evan Daugherty

two stars

              You know your reboot/revamp is in trouble when a secondary character has to tell the audience not once, not twice, but three times to just enjoy what’s on the screen.  Will Arnett’s neurotic Vernon Fenwick (a carry-over from the original cartoon – kind of) tells…

If you are both old enough and had enough money (or at least wanted to have enough money) then you remember the Palm Pilot. This was a handheld organizer along the lines of the iPhone or the Newton, but worse and better or different or something. It was the digital equivalent of the Franklin Planner with a touch of awesomeness and innovation mixed in.…

The CosView at Boston Comic Con

Hey guys! We are here to catch you up with the interviews at Boston Comic Con, as well as photos from around the con. It was crazy packed and I have to say, the mini-line con works as a good name. We were able to meet with great people and talk to them about what they do in life, including Ivy Doomkitty, Bellechere, and Bethany Maddock. We also had to forego some interviews too because BCC did…
