Welcome back to all the conniving, aspiring villains out there. This week I checked out a movie just for you, and me, and all of us wannabe evil schemers out there. A movie that had just a few of my favorite things, from Joss Whedon to touching musical moments, Neil Patrick Harris to Nathan Fillion, and a bit of a mad scientist to top it all off, I had been told again and again that Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog was a movie made for me. In many ways all those co-conspirators of mine were right, so continue forward for a spoiler-laden review of this short 40 minute flick.
I was skimming through headlines early this week in the wake of San Diego Comic Con, and I glimpsed an article about test footage for a planned Dead Pool movie featuring a previously unseen version of the character, reportedly more in keeping with his traditional portrayal. I guess the video was taken down before I got a chance to watch it but here are the five things we NEED to see in this remake of the classic 1988 installment in the Dirty Harry series.
With all the flurry of SDCC announcements recently it was hard to digest and take it all in. One of them in particular really stood out and bothered me. Greg Rucka would be leaving the new Cyclops series after issue #6. This is unfortunate because Rucka is one of my favorite writers; I think Gotham Central is one of the few truly flawless series that exists. His reasons for leaving are legit enough, he does pen a few other different series and wants to concentrate on his novel writing. I respect that. I’m just sad to see him leave the only Marvel title he was doing.
Warning: This is a satire…..for the most part. Don’t take these words too seriously… seriously
Welcome back to the one that started it all folks. When I first came up with the idea for the Villain Spotlight, I had originally planned it to just be about fictional characters for the most part. However, in the back of my mind I always knew that eventually, the real world would come into play in some fashion. This past weekend, it happened, and it happened very quick, and very dirtily. I’m talking about retailers, and their desire to keep evil at bay….like a bunch of bitches.
It feels good to be home. I know I have been neglecting you as of late dear Horrors, but don’t think that I have completely forgotten. You are always on my mind. When I woke up this morning, I made a plan to do literally nothing all day, and it was a good plan. However, much like what happens whenever I decide to do nothing, I get pulled into something. This time, that something was a bit more violent than usual. After seeing the first Purge movie in the theaters a while ago, I was a bit disappointed to be honest. Why you ask? Well I’ll goddamn tell you.
Biff and Kang recently sat down to discuss Chris Claremont’s legendary 17 year run on the X-Men. Picking up a third tier title on the verge of cancellation he propelled it into the massive franchise that stands today which is virtually all based on the house that Claremont built (sorry Stan!). There was a lot to celebrate throughout that time period, so sit back, make yourself a drink and travel back in time with us as we talk about Claremont’s history with Marvel’s Merry Mutants.
