Tasty Television: A Review of Hannibal 1×01 Apéritif


hannibal

Hannibal Lecter is one of America’s most iconic fictional serial killers. Created by author Thomas Harris in the 1981 novel Red Dragon, he blew up. This lead to two sequel novels, a prequel, and five films featuring the character. The book Red Dragon has been adapted twice for the big screen, the first time with the box office bomb Manhunter in 1986 a film featuring Brian Cox as the famous cannibal, then again in the 2002 film Red Dragon featuring Anthony Hopkins.  Now, in 2013 we have a third adaptation of the book with Bryan Fullers new show: Hannibal.

Call Me Joe: A G.I. Joe Retaliation Review


gijoe2

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been a huge G.I. Joe fan. I loved the toys and the cartoon and the animated movie. My favorite incarnation, however, has to be the 2009 animated serial G.I. Joe Resolute. It was adult, serious, and had probably the best interpretation of Cobra Commander I have ever seen. That same year, a live action movie came out, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. I was super excited to see all of my favorite characters on screen, especially Cobra Commander.

In Defense of DC’s New 52

In 2011 DC thought up a new marketing strategy to get people to buy more of their comics. At this point, Marvel Comics was kicking their butts when it came to sales, and DC needed something new and fresh. What they did was create something called “The New 52.” A lot of people were wondering if this would be similar to their event 52 in which DC released an issue of the event every week for 52 weeks. We were dead wrong. What they did choose to do was a complete overhaul of the universe combining certain universes and breaking a way new ones and essentially rebooting the entire DC Universe.  Unfortunately this was very controversial and lead to many people dropping DC altogether, and bad mouthing them at any chance they could.  However, unlike some comic fans I am a little more open minded and decided to actually give the new universe a chance.

Comically Whedon Part 4: Buffy, Angel and the Whedonverse in Comics

Fray Connections!

We all remember those tragic days; they will live on in history as a moment of great fandom disappointment. Of course, I’m talking about the days that Buffy, Angel and Firefly were all canceled. It left a hole in our hearts, leaving us wanting more and more. For a while, we gave up hope. That is, until 2007, when Joss Whedon surprised us all with the announcement that Buffy was coming back, but not in the way that we thought.

Comically Whedon Part 3: Fray


Joss’s comic book career, up until this point, had been filled with him writing other peoples characters (the X-men and the Runaways). However, Joss Whedon is at his best when he is working with his own characters. This way, he’s not limited to the personalities and continuities of previously established and well known people. It also means he can kill off whoever the hell he wants to and no one can do a damn thing about it. So around the time “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” was coming to an end Joss decided to create a comic book set in the same world as Buffy, but with more of a punk rock/sci-fi edge to it.  He called it Fray.

Comically Whedon Part 2: The Runaways


runaways_digest8

Before I even knew that Joss Whedon had a run on this book, I loved the Runaways series. It was fun, had a great story and characters, and was created by Brian K. Vaughn, who wrote one of my favorite Maxi-Series of all time-Y: The Last Man. Continue reading

Comically Whedon Part 1: Astonishing X-Men

Man, this Image is first class.

Joss Whedon seems to be a master of all mediums. He has written and directed films, created TV shows, and even wrote a few comic books. Today I will be looking at my favorite X-Men run of all time. This is especially strange since the X-Men as a concept kind of bug me (more on that later). The concept of Astonishing X-Men was brilliant, it was canon, but also not canon. It contained elements of the original comics but avoided the big crossover events and for that I have mad respect for the series.
