Name: Cameron Rice

Bio: I've been reading the books that they call "comic" for some time now. I was strickly Super-Hero till I stumbled across iFanboy in early 05. From that point I have been picking up new and "edgyer" material that I show to my friends and they go "WTF dude!?" (Guy having his face nailed back on in Preacher will get that reaction).

    August 15, 2014 4:30 am So I think we're learning any time Paul states he hasn't seen a movie, it's only a short amount of time before a new Special Edition Blu Ray is announced. http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=14733 As a blu-ray collector, this new power excites me. Can Paul please state (true or not true) that he hasn't seen the following: Big Trouble in Little China Fright Night (1985) The Last Boy Scout A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3 Dream Warriors. (Need a Darabont commentary on that bad boy) I don't seek to abuse this power, just merely seeing if something wonderful can happen. Thank you for your time.
    June 18, 2014 8:26 pm The thing about wanting to give Dan Aykroyd more jokes is understandable, but when you see the films that Aykroyd wrote where he is the jokester, it just doesn't work. (Nothing but Trouble, Dr. Detroit, Caddyshack II [though that he didn't write). He tends to work better in either the more straight man role (Blues Brothers). Or when he's oddly old fashioned leaning on naive sentiment (Ghostbusters, Spies Like Us) he's great. For whatever reason Aykroyd as comic relief joke guy only seemed to work on SNL. In film he works best as straight man, naive guy or authority figure (Tommy Boy, My Girl, Sgt. Bilko)... I've clearly thought to much about Dan Aykroyd's career...
    May 4, 2014 7:13 pm On Batman E #4. I loved the art of Dustin Nguyen in this, and was glad to see Falcone no longer wearing an Ed Hardy t-shirt. But other then that this issue felt...I don't know. I'm wanting to love this series, but I feel like we're seeing the problem of doing a weekly series that constraints on one character instead of a bunch. Something like Fifty-Two was able to have issues that jump from Booster to Question, here or there, kind of like Game of Thrones, a bunch of characters to jump around to so it keeps momentum going. But with one character, it feels a little like going circles, like "Hey Batman, find any clues yet?" "Nope!" "Okay, well keep looking, see ya next week." Also I get Barbra is POed. But her taking it out on Bruce, the world's GREATEST DETECTIVE seems...a little out of character, like this is the point she'd reach after he's failed a number of times, her breaking point, not right away... but I do hope we see Gordon have a "You're locked in here with me!" moment...that'd be great. I'm going to keep reading, I trust these writers, and I don't hate it, but it hasn't quite gelled yet.
    May 3, 2014 11:43 pm Good thing about Gwen being dead now, Peter no longer has to walk around with the weight and guilt of Captain Stacy following him around. Phew! What a relief!
    May 3, 2014 7:37 pm So I'm with Timmy on this one, this movie is horrendously bad. This is like a cadbury egg, the sweet stuff is in the middle (Gwen and Peter) and that works, but it's surrounded by, instead of chocolate, poop. So stray thoughts and spoilers: - What is this movie about? What's anyone's motivation? I don't mean plot, but why's anyone doing what they're doing? What's Peter's story in this film? Win back Gwen/ She's only in it for probably 20 minutes in total. Find out the truth about his father? That plot comes and goes. What is Spider-man's story here? Why's he doing what he's doing in the larger scope of this film? - Peter Parker is a terrible boyfriend, I mean truly he's a human monster. In the Raimi films and comics Peter misses events because he is Spider-Man, show's up late, can't commit to nothing. In these films Peter doesn't go to Gwen's father's funeral, so no support there, breaks up with her on graduation day, does a twitchy weird pour out his heart on the day of presentation and then is actually the cause of her death. If he wasn't Spider-man, we'd all just think he was needy and nuts. - Captain Stacy is the new Uncle Ben in this series, there's no great power no responsibility. - Peter Parker has to watch a video on how a battery works, super smart dude. - Max Dillion is basically the Bjork stalker Ricard Lopez, he would have done something terrible anyway, judging by the Marlyn Manson music he has playing in his...mind? head? Whatever. He was probably going to send Spider-Man an acid bomb at some point. - Webb said they gave Harry the disease to add a ticking clock element to the film. A ticking clock that will take 40 years to finally kill him, what a great clock. - How did Goblin know how to use pumpkin bombs or what they were for? We know because we're the audience, but how does he know? - What a shock, a film written by Kurtzman and Orci involves Peter being the chosen one, where no one else can be Spider-Man, and all evil things come from one single empire. We get it guys, you loved Star Wars, we all get it. In the end this was just terrible. It's to bad because there is some good. Peter and Gwen scenes are great, the opening 15 minutes with Spidey are a ton of fun, the movie looks awesome, it's well shot. But at the end of the day, what's it matter if the technology to have Spider-man swing around has gotten better then it did ten years ago if this film has no heart beating through it. There's no through line to follow, there's no one to care about, it just feels like a lot of stuff thrown on the screen, which can work in some cases, but this isn't a Jodorowsky movie, it's Spider-Man. This shouldn't be so difficult.

    July 19, 2013 11:40 pm Man, Gillen has got himself a love on for Sinister that I do not understand. I love most of his work, but the Sinister stuff is a snooze fest for me.
    June 10, 2013 9:12 pm Pretty cool, would much rather have this then WB taking this universe and trying really hard to make a JL movie. Let these movies be awesome on their own.

    May 21, 2013 2:26 pm Remember when Cyclops and Jean Grey were in love and dating? Wolverine doesn't. And he don't care. What a dawag!
