I found this confounding, despite having read the “World’s Greatest” story where Millar introduced Nu-Earth. Learn to tell a story,…

May 8, 2016 4:48 pm Do you think a new hero will assume the mantle of Captain America? The movie didn't end in a way whereby Winter Soldier was in a position to be "Bucky-Cap." Nor is it a likely persona change for Sam Wilson, either, but there was a maneuver Falcon pulled when he folded his wings in front of himself to stop a barrage of bullets that made be wish he'd be given the red, white, and blue shield. In this movie, his drone weapon nicknamed Red Wing looked a lot like Skeets from Booster Gold.
April 3, 2016 6:44 pm Did Ron lift the embargo on discussing the Mets? They're about to play the Royals again.
March 27, 2016 6:13 pm I liked J.J. Abrams' "10 Cloverfield Lane." It reminded me of "Psycho."
February 14, 2016 3:28 am You can bet your bags and boards, in a movie this violent someone will be run through with a length of rebar.
January 5, 2016 12:29 am I see our greatest actor, Michael Stuhlbarg, will play Doctor Strange's antagonist, Nicodemus West, in the feel-strange-movie-of-Christmas "Doctor Strange." I only know this character because iFanboy hipped me to the Marcos Martin/Brian K. Vaughan comic book "The Oath." I tried to make a list of my favorite TV shows from 2015, but it was just too long. I sure dig "House of Cards." It really feels Fincher-y. And "Documentary Now," "Rick and Morty," "Nathan for You," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Louie" were all really off beat and funny. I thought "Sense8" was really fearless, and I marveled at the global diversity of its cast and shooting locations. Happy New Year!
December 30, 2015 4:47 pm I feel that the producers of TFA gave the audience a chance to experience a beautiful rendition of a classic movie. It's like listening to John Coltrane covering Rodgers & Hammerstein's song "My Favorite Things." Sharp post, @bobby2889.
December 21, 2015 9:52 pm There is a terrific bit of satire on Netflix about the Internet and "Star Wars" from Season 2 of IFC's The Birthday Boys, it's the episode called "Cerf's Folly." (I closed my eyes during the trailer for "Batman Vs. Superman" but Lex Luther sounded wrong, wrong, wrong.)
December 10, 2015 12:37 am Jones' hair was great. To me it was the key element of her appearance that I could recognize from the comic. If I may say so, I liked the episode where she went up against the prejudiced and frightened couple. The show's crew put the female adversary in this red coat, instead of the color purple that pervaded this series, and then she was revealed to be a false lead or red herring. I thought Jones' throwing a radiator at the woman was a good bit of action, too. One name drop to another Marvel character I caught during this one was Jones' suggestion of NYC investigator Angela Del Toro AKA The White Tiger. So, next season, put your paws up and let's root for a Marvel Team-Up: The White Tiger and Hellcat Vs. Melvin Potter AKA Gladiator. And maybe those dastardly, white supremacists the Sons of The Serpent can get beat up, too. I preferred this series to Daredevil because of its weightier themes. Bendis should be proud of designing a strong, yet multi-dimensional female lead. Jones' victimization, recovery, and fight put her in the pantheon of protagonists alongside Sidney Prescott from "Scream" and Beatrix Kiddo from "Kill Bill." I hope some female listeners to the podcast post about their impressions, too, because I think her odyssey was distinctly feminine. Thank you for the special-edition podcast. You guys could have shoehorned "Jessica Jones" into the oft-awaited Year-End Media Roundup Show, but this was much appreciated because years ago we the iFanbase bought the Alias Omnibus on your recommendation. Did you know David Mack, Alias cover-artist (I can't believe a teenage girl didn't design those covers!) did the show's titles for Netflix?
November 30, 2015 6:34 pm Last night on AMC's The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman fans got an Easter Egg, Invincible Mini-Mates toys. Omni-Man, Invincible himself, Atom-Eve, and Allan the Alien were collected in the bedroom of a poor little boy who's struggling to cope with the impossible situation of living among the walking dead. Good episode.
October 21, 2015 5:21 am Here's a link to a Bloom County strip published on Facebook after iFanboy uploaded this week's "Star Wars Corner." https://www.facebook.com/berkeleybreathed/photos/a.114529165244512.10815.108793262484769/1067854223245330/?type=3&permPage=1 I grew up on this series. It probably did a lot to inform my political identity. I recommend the collections put out by IDW. The artist said on NPR that he revels in the freedom to self publish digitally. No longer does he answer to the strictures of editors.
