The Walking Dead Rick Carl Grimes comic

Article by Gregg Katzman

The latest episode of The Walking Dead, ‘Heads Up’, set the stage for season 6’s midseason finale while also answering whether or not Glenn was still alive. Towards the end of the episode, there’s a bit of hope on the horizon, and that’s something the residents of Alexandria desperately need. But it just wouldn’t be The Walking Dead without having a moment of optimism completely destroyed by something terrible, would it? We’re all speculating about what’ll happen next (especially with the Wolf…), but one huge moment from the comic was heavily teased. If you haven’t read Robert Kirkman’s comic book series (fix that mistake asap, please), this would be a great time for you to back out this article. Unless you don’t mind a possible spoiler, that is. Seriously, consider yourself warned: there’s SPOILERS AHEAD!

Jessica Jones Marvel Netflix

Marvel and Netflix’s first series, Daredevil, was a great, character-driven escape from all of the big screen spectacle that’s seen in Marvel Studios’ films. The stakes were no longer global or even just national – they were confined to part of a city, and the multiple hour-long episodes gave viewers a much better chance to delve into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of New York and the interesting characters who populate it. Now, we’re getting a chance to further explore the MCU’s Big Apple as another hero steps into the spotlight: Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). The series will be available on Netflix this Friday (11/20/15), but we had a chance to check it out early. So far, it’s a terrific follow-up to the Man Without Fear’s show!

“May the Force be….”, you know the rest. Everyone knows the rest. My mother knows the rest of that sentence and she thinks Jedi and Sith are foreign spices in her ethnic food cabinet. Despite a ten year drought of a Star Wars film, the franchise has been more ubiquitous than ever. Even though there has been no feature film, there has been the TV hits Clone Wars and more recently, Star Wars Rebels which is just now hitting its stride as Episode VII looms just a month away from multiplexes. Just a few weeks ago after Episode VII’s newest trailer, ticket sales on sites like Fandango shut down because Star Wars was literally breaking the Internet.

Suicide Squad movie

Article by Gregg Katzman

Most comic book movies follow a hero – or anti-hero’s – struggle against a big bad. That isn’t the case in David Ayer’s upcoming DC movie, Suicide Squad. Instead of revolving around a good person’s struggle – or at least someone trying to be good – the movie will feature a group of dangerous villains who are now working for the U.S. government. It’s a story that’s full of twisted characters and the first trailer had quite a dark atmosphere – there’s no sunshine and flowers here, just bad people and even worse people. Given the violent characters and the bleak nature of the story, many fans were wondering if Suicide Squad would be the first movie in the evergrowing DC Extended Universe to earn an R rating. Well, it looks like that probably won’t be the case.
