Could Avengers 3 Be Split into Two Movies?

Sep
29

For the past six years, Marvel has been slowly but steadily engineering an epic storyline that will take another four years to reach its conclusion. With each batch of films, we find out a little bit more about the Infinity Stones, Thanos, and how all of that ties the entire Marvel universe together. It's no surprise then that Avengers 3, the film that will feature the conclusion of this arc in 2018, will likely be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) movie stories of all time; maybe even too big for just one film.

Don Hertzfeldt's Couch Gag Recounts Everything Horrifically Wrong with 'The Simpsons'

Sep
29

Don Hertzfeldt's career has always been about deconstruction and nightmarish parody, and he's outdone himself with a fantastically disturbing couch gag for The Simpsons, one that mouths the sad irony between the show's theme of familial connection and the fact that a successful, mainstream animation thrives on repetitiveness and an inhuman generality.

The Enterprise Unchained, Pt. 1, The Continuing (Bonkers) Final Season Of TNG

Sep
28

I’d usually sort of lay out what kind of batshittery you’re in store for this episode, but a lot of the jolts depend on a certain amount of tension, and I don’t want to ruin that for you. So let’s dive right in and let the absurdity unfold organically, like a flower opening to the warmth of the sun or a facehugger taking its first, terrifying scuttles towards raping your face with its space penis. This episode opens with Deanna Troi plying her Betazoid charms on a towering, ugly, alien bartender. It turns out she’s wearing her civvies and combing the local taverns looking for Picard, who has disappeared. After some lascivious back and forth the bartender makes it clear that he’d love to fuck her, but won’t be telling her anything about his discreet clientele.

Channel Surfer: Raising Hope, The Title is a Metaphor

Sep
27

Raising Hope, the classic story of a 24 year old loser who accidentally knocks up a serial killer and raises their baby with his eccentric family. It sound a little far fetched, but no more so than the story of an ex-petty thief who uses his lottery winnings to makes amends for all the wrongs he’s ever committed. Wouldn’t it be weird if they were both made up by the same guy?

In Which Geordi Saves Murdering Aliens And Not His Mother, The Continuing (Bonkers) Final Season of TNG

Sep
25

In this episode Geordi will completely abuse some experimental technology and lose his mother. The Enterprise will once again forgive an alien species slaughtering an entire crew on “accident," and these vast abuses of authority and endangerment of life and property will be punished with the slight disapproval of Picard. Picard is pretty much the king of "I'm not angry. I'm disappointed," followed by some slight, warm comment.

If You Want Blood, Look at Elric Vol. 1: The Ruby Throne [Comic Review]

Sep
25

Fantasy is a difficult genre for me.  I have constantly encountered books and stories with bland, rehashed characters with unpronounceable quadrisyllabic names.  That is how Michael Moorcock's Elric Volume 1 began for me, but the end result is actually something quite different off the beaten path.

The Pull List: Roche Limit Dazzles with a Star-Gazing Heart and Weaponized Hallucinogens

Sep
25

Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where we check out a first isssue and tell you whether or not to follow that comic based only on that. This week I picked up Roche Limit off Comixology--it's a stellar noir about the planetary colony "Roche Limit," which was intended to be man's lofty foothold towards the stars, but went the way of Gotham instead. The book's main plot doesn't impress much with the 'missing girl in the city' spiel, but the overarching concept of the Roche Limit and its ill-fated, philanthropist creator has a gravity of its own.
