“Aquaman” #38

Nailing down Aquaman as a character can be tough. We’ve seen so many different versions of him: the clean-cut undersea Superman of the Super Friends, the wise-cracking surfer dude in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and the version commonly seen in the comics which feels like an underwater Thor. In the ‘King Slayer Saga,’ Dan Abnett attempts – with mixed results – to make the character a little more approachable and interesting to new readers.

Limbo and Inside fill a neglected niche in the Switch library

After playing both Inside and Limbo on the Nintendo Switch, I’ve com3 to the realization that the handheld needs more games with less color. Tiny person in a big world Limbo and Inside are the only games thus far made by indie studio Playdead. In both games, you play child-like characters in dystopian worlds devoid of color. There’s no combat or action. All you can do is try to survive attacks and puzzle your way to the end. Both games are recognizable for their dark imagery, and it’s indeed [Read Entire Story]

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review – The Game is Still Fun

Welcome to the Jungle is an entertaining – if shallow – return to the world of Jumanji that’s intended more for youngsters than nostalgic adults. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a (quasi) sequel to the 1995 action-adventure film Jumanji, which itself was based on the illustrated children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg. Much like the 1995 Jumanji served as a family-friendly starring vehicle for the late Robin Williams, Welcome to the Jungle allows headliner Dwayne [Read Entire Story]

“Grandville: Force Majeure”

The latest in the ambitious series of anthropomorphic steampunk graphic novels is another fine showcase for Bryan Talbot’s talents as an artist and a world-builder; but despite being as joyful to read as any previews Inspector LeBrock adventure, there’s a lack of thematic effort which make this book feels somewhat shallow by comparison. By focusing more on sly references and the closing of previously established plotlines, this swansong that never quite reaches the heights of [Read Entire Story]

Pitch Perfect 3 Review: The Trilogy Ends With an A-ca Whimper

Pitch Perfect 3 offers a satisfying conclusion to the a capella series, but sacrifices heart and substance for bizarre, over-the-top story choices. Pitch Perfect 3 reunites the Barden Bellas for one last tour in the third outing of the movie franchise focused on a collegiate a capella singing group. When the first Pitch Perfect hit theaters in 2012, it was amid the heyday of FOX’s Glee, a TV series that had given rise to a wave of popularity for show choirs and a capella [Read Entire Story]

All the Money in the World Review: Ridley Scott Goes Citizen Kane

All the Money in the World makes for a solid dramatic thriller, but falls short when it comes to being an insightful biopic about John Paul Getty. All the Money in the World is the latest directorial effort from Ridley Scott and the filmmaker’s second release in 2017, following this past spring’s Alien: Covenant. The true story of the Getty kidnapping in the 1970s might be a far cry from Scott’s recent sci-fi projects, but the director is no stranger to historical [Read Entire Story]

Alchemy of the New: The Catalyst Prime Universe is Here

Let’s say you love comics. You love comics, but you’re frustrated. There are so many good independent books and small publishers that take chances and seem to keep in step with the times. You want to see that creative daring replicated in the work of the big publishing houses, with characters and story arcs that reflect the changing sensibilities and diversity of a modern world, playing out in the larger connected universes you have loved since childhood. But it rarely seems to work very well. [Read Entire Story]

Darkest Hour Review: Gary Oldman Leads the War Effort

Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour stylishly follows Winston Churchill’s early days as Prime Minister with a transformative performance from Gary Oldman. Darkest Hour is director Joe Wright’s latest project, with the filmmaker tackling the historical figure of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in his early days in the position during World War II.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review – The Saga Continues in Epic Fashion

Star Wars: The Last Jedi builds upon Star Wars history for a more expansive, high-stakes adventure with plenty of fresh – and classic – elements. Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi is the middle chapter of Lucasfilm’s latest trilogy set within the Star Wars universe, though this is the first trilogy since Disney acquired the studio – and the first without original creator George Lucas at the creative helm. Instead, writer/director Rian Johnson takes the reins from J.J. [Read Entire Story]

The Greatest Showman Review: Hugh Jackman Can’t Save This Musical

The Greatest Showman is a disjointed, glossy, sugar-coated mess that just skates by on Jackman’s natural charm and charisma. The Greatest Showman has been a passion project for star Hugh Jackman for years, first entering development in 2009. It spent years treading water before finally getting off the ground (director Michael Gracey was hired in 2011), in part due to Fox’s reluctance to green light an original musical. The film explores the life of P.T. Barnum, who became the founder [Read Entire Story]

“X-Men: Magneto Testament”

With International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, we decided to take a look back at Greg Pak and Carmine Di Giandomenico’s 2008 miniseries “X-Men: Magneto Testament,” which retells the early years of the mutant supervillain with devastating historical accuracy. Despite the title, there is very little of the Marvel Universe: this is the almost true story of a Jewish teenager’s struggle to survive the horrors of Nazi Germany.
