Carbon Grey #1 - Image Comics

Carbon Grey #1 Review

This is the most explosively violent and absolutely drop-dead gorgeous comic I have read since R. Grampa’s Mesmo Delivery, Carbon Grey from Image Comics could easily be the best new book of 2011.

New Trailer for HBO’s Game of Thrones

HBO unleashed a new trailer for their upcoming fantasy series Game of Thrones today. Based on the novels of George R. R. Martin, Thrones revolves around the medieval world of Westeros, a turbulent kingdom where the ruling houses vie for control of the coveted Iron Throne. The show boasts an amazing cast that includes fantasy vet Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and HBO alum Aiden Gillen.
Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull - Captain America: The First Avenger

First Image of Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull

Ladies and gentleman, I give you Hugo Weaving's Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger. I'm guessing this is a late-in-the-movie uniform, as there's no Nazi symbology. This kind of disappoints me in a weird way; I mean, being a Nazi just adds another level of evil to The Red Skull, don't you think?

Killzone 3

Killzone 3 Review

While it certainly is one of the most furiously pushed Sony games in a crowded room, in its history Killzone has never seemed to stick with either picky first person shooters or snooty bloggers. Now onto the third iteration, Killzone 3 hopes to finally stop being another brick in the FPS wall but a cornerstone.

Dethklok #3 Review

Dethklok #3 reads just like an episode of the wildly dark and humorous TV show Metalocalypse, from which it is spawned. The comic takes its name from the heavy metal band that the animated show revolves around. This isn't classic, ground-breaking, soul-searching writing, but not every comic needs to be an epic examination of the worlds of our imagination. Dethklok is just pure awesomeness.

EFM 2011: Vampire Review

Simon is not an ordinary young man. His seemingly innocuous job, as a high-school biology teacher, is an odd a cover for his strange existence as a serial killer. The women he murders are intent on suicide; he just gives them the option of dying quickly and painlessly - by exsanguinating them, and then drinking their blood. While this might sound like the outline of a horror film, director Iwai Shunji’s remarkable film Vampire is in truth a quiet, dark, and intense drama, a strange take on the vampire myth, and an oddly compelling love story.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Trailer & Release Date

Toronto developed indie game experiment Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is an exciting convergence of Canadian talent. The iPhone/iPad game just got a new trailer and release date. Sort of. The mysterious "Audience Calibration Procedure" doesn't contain an exact release date per se, but it does stress the significance of the Vernal Equinox - the first day of Spring.
Abyss: Family Issues #1 - Featured

Abyss: Family Values #1 Review

Abyss is the latest comic title from the Canadian publisher Red 5, best known for their Atomic Robo series. Abyss focuses on Eric Hoffman, who has just inherited his father’s mansion, corporate fortune, and super-villain tech. If this sounds slightly familiar, you might be thinking of the starting premise of Wanted by Mark Millar. Abyss is no rip-off though, instead taking a lighthearted look at a young man trying to define himself in the long shadow of his father’s legacy.

Power Girl #21 Review

Style over substance. That is the typical first reaction when someone mentions the Power Girl title. Or, thoughts of cheesecake art that hangs on skeleton thin plotlines. This is not the case though.
Fantastic 4 #588 - Featured

Fantastic Four #588 Review

Fantastic Four #588 is emotionally powerful, visually gripping, and a definite must read. Dealing with the aftermath of the Human Torch’s death, this heart wrenching tale is everything the last issue wasn’t for me. With no dialogue until the final page, the story still conveys so much about these characters and their supporting cast. Plus, it has the best Hulk versus The Thing battle ever. You have to read to find out why!
Hall-Pass-Featured

Hall Pass Review

I’m gonna lay it all out for you: If you watched the trailer for Hall Pass and thought “I bet I could tell you, beat by beat, exactly how that movie’s plot is going to go”, then you are likely correct in your assumptions. Save for a some supporting cameos and a few typically-scatological set pieces, the Farrelly brothers’ latest film feels exactly like the marriages it seeks to satirize: good-natured and comfortable, but ultimately tepid and crushingly predictable.
Drive Angry - Featured

Drive Angry Review

Cigars, whiskey, sunglasses, a naked waitress straddling a clothed, but unzipped Nic Cage, the line “I never disrobe before gunplay”, gunplay, sex, sex and gunplay and whiskey and cigars at the same time. This is the sort of thing you will find in Drive Angry, the newest film in Nic Cage's long and illustrious oeuvre, and this is just one scene.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Trailer Arrives

The first trailer featuring in-game footage of the anticipated Elder Scrolls sequel, Skyrim, has arrived. Elder Scrolls V is Bethesda's long awaited follow-up to the excellent Oblivion, a game that was praised at the time for its state of the art visuals. Skyrim seems to be following in its predecessors footsteps, the fantasy role-playing game's visuals look second to none.
