Season 6 of The Walking Dead has focused heavily expanding the zombie-infested world and giving us even more insight into each of the survivors in Alexandria. Despite having to do something very twisted to get more food, things aren’t looking too bleak for Rick Grimes’ group. They finally don’t have to worry about resources and they have walls protecting them from the undead and hostile humans. For the most part, things aren’t looking shabby, and that’s saying a lot considering all of the terrible stuff they had to endure in the previous seasons. But one man is about to change everything, and that man’s name is Negan.

Leonard Nimoy

Article by Gerry Gladston

Leonard Nimoy won accolades, awards, and three Emmy nominations for a finely tuned, nuanced portrayal of a conflicted man torn between his Vulcan heritage and his emotional human side.  We cheered the rare moments that Mr. Spock found happiness, and shed a tear when he found sadness.  Mr. Spock would never admit to having a lighter side, but his ribbing of Dr. McCoy, his sarcastic asides while raising an eyebrow (yes, one eyebrow), and his friendship with, and unyielding loyalty to Captain Kirk, were all part of the adventure.

Batman v Superman

Review by Gregg Katzman

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The plot is pretty much in the title, isn’t it? We all know the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) will be at odds, but at least two Justice League movies have been announced, so we’re also pretty sure they’ll end up on the same side – it’s all in one of the trailers, after all. Anyone who has read a comic has seen the “heroes battle until they join forces” scenario countless times before. Does knowing that really matter, though? To some, it will. But to me, that isn’t what’s important. I don’t really care about “who will win?” I’m not on “team Batman” or “team Superman”. I’m here to see Warner Bros. and DC Comics give fans what they’ve craved for so long: a cinematic universe that’s full of familiar faces, both good and bad.  Seeing how everything actually plays out and how these characters are handled is far more important than strongly suspecting that they’ll end up as friends, or at least allies. Is their conflict forced or does it feel justified? Does the eventual team-up feel like a natural development, or is it there just to blatantly get us ready for Justice League movies? I’d say those are a few of the things that really matter. Besides, we’re all on team Wonder Woman, right?
