For the past ten years we have seen more films based of off comic books than we have ever seen before. This is great! I love most of the films that come out and I will probably see any film … Continue reading
In May, Mat Smith announced he was retiring from being the Doctor. And, to be honest, most of the fandom felt sad about it. He was our hip, young, cool Doctor. Then Peter Capaldi was announced as the next regeneration. Again, most of the fandom reacted positively (especially after seeing gifs of him in In the Thick of It). So of course, we all expected a great, wonderful, amazing send off for Matt, as great and heartbreaking as we got for David Tennant.
Moffat, you let me down again. Continue reading

We live in a world where vampires are essentially taking over. In almost every medium, from movies to comic books to television shows. The most notable of all of these and arguably the one that probably turned most people off to vampires forever was “The Twilight Saga.” This has to be one of the most polarizing franchises in existence. You either are head over heels in love with it, or despise it with every fiber of your being. I am personally not a fan of the “saga” as they call it. I find the characters to be shallow, two dimensional and the books to be filled with Mary Sues and Gary Stu’s. Continue reading

Closest thing we have to a live action Justice League so far.

The start of summer saw the end of one of the most talked about science fiction shows in a long while – at least the end of its first season anyway. Most of that conversation happened because of one very talented actress. Yes, everything about Orphan Black is good – it’s great, even – but Tatiana Maslany is the reason it all came together into a ten episode season that fans are ranting and raving about. After all, every one is Tatiana. (Don’t worry, though, this is mostly Spoiler Free, except for the fact that they’re clones. But everyone knows that.)
Hannibal Lecter is one of the most well-known fictional characters of all time. Thomas Harris will go down in history for changing crime novels, crime stories, and for creating the popular culture’s need for serial killers. Bryan Fuller will go down in history for creating some of the most beloved television series about death, the after life, and food. All of which were tragically cut short. Hannibal, however, has been renewed for a second season on NBC, something which Bryan Fuller was actually pretty sure about (x).

So Netflix has been doing this really cool thing this year. They’ve started picking up on fans’ habits of watching a season of a television show in a day, and they’ve started creating their own shows. It all started with House of Cards, and it moved on to the Eli Roth-produced horror show Hemlock Grove.
Goodness, there was too much pretty in this show.
I was worried about this show during the first half because the episodes seemed to be hit or miss. There were some fantastic ones, then there were some that made me want to pull my hair out. That, however, was not the case for the second half of the season. Continue reading
So Doctor Who ended last Saturday. Well, this season/series (for wherever you’re reading from). And obviously it was picked up for another season/series. But some of the deep love for the show is starting to fade.
WARNING: After the cut there will be spoilers. Spoilers galore. Like River’s notebook. But worse. Tread with caution. Continue reading
When Sera Gamble finally left Supernatural as showrunner, everyone rejoiced. Finally, everyone thought, the reign of (mostly) horrible story lines would be over. And, okay, they were – for the most part. Some story lines we’re stuck with because of the special kind of hell that was left over from season six and season seven. However, the guys promised us something during the summer between season seven and season eight – and they didn’t really deliver. In fact, there are certain staff writers who, when I see they’ve written an episode, I cringe and prepare myself for their lack of understanding of the world, the characters, and their audience.
Season eight was a promise, and it fell short.
