Thursday Night Kung Fu Theater

   “Shaolin vs. Wu Tang (1983)“!   In a plot to make himself the master of both disciplines, a jealous Qing leader [Wang Lung‑wei] forces two friends from rival martial arts schools [Gordon Liu & Adam Cheng] to fight each other. That sums it up. It’s a pretty simple flick but the opening credits are visually… Continue reading Thursday Night Kung Fu Theater

Why Indiana Jones 4 was Actually Awesome

   Do you think Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucked? Then this may just change your mind like it did mine.    First we need to talk about our attitudes. We ALL went into this movie with high expectations. We wanted our Harrison Ford from, at least, 1989. After some time we… Continue reading Why Indiana Jones 4 was Actually Awesome

Let’s Go, Voltron…

   Voltron: Legendary Defender, was released on June 10th. I cannot recommend this new show enough. I was 15 when Voltron: Defender of the Universe was released in North America from a retooled Beast King: Go Lion. Back then, I enjoyed the show a lot, it wasn’t my favorite but is was fun… until they tried splicing in Armored Fleet… Continue reading Let’s Go, Voltron…

There are copies on Amazon, honestly they don’t seem like they are worth the price. I would rather rent or pay the price for a digital… Continue reading That Time Wonder Woman Was Blonde (1974)

KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978)

So a little over a week or so ago, Warner Bros. released “Scooby-Doo! and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery“. It has an EPIC opening credit scene that transported me back to 1978. KISS was something that I had never heard of before, then I saw the make-up, the costumes and the superpowers, they had me!… Continue reading KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978)

Bryan Singer Set To Helm ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Days of Futures Past Redux    Due to circumstances out of my control, I am always tardy to the party. Having only recently viewed X-Men: Days of Future Past, I have to say that I am very impressed with the way they re-wrote that Claremont/Byrne classic X-Men tale. Some things still didn’t make sense but… Continue reading Bryan Singer Set To Helm ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Beware the Cartoon Network, Batman.

   I wrote my obligatory rant about CN yanking BTB from its line-up (just like Young Justice & Green Lantern last October, 2012) on Rob’s iO9 entry but now I am bring it to my own blog. I read in the other ranting comments that Cartoon Network is more concerned with a demographic that is far below… Continue reading Beware the Cartoon Network, Batman.
