So Marvel announced today that a female character will be taking over the mantle of Thor in the comic world soon. Awesome! Cool! More strong, female characters in the comics world, especially in the world of big-name heroes, is awesome to see. But, is there really a need to turn Thor into a woman?

Daniel Radcliffe is Heading to Comic-Con for the First Time with a Trailer for Horns

Jul
15

Daniel Radcliffe is headed to Comic-Con for the first time, and surprisingly, it's not for anything Harry Potter related. Instead, he's there to promote Horns, a dark fantasy film based on Locke & Key author Joe Hill's novel of the same name. It stars Radcliffe as a man who sprouts a pair of demonic looking horns overnight. If that wasn't bad enough, his girlfriend gets murdered, and everyone wants to blame the guy with the scary looking head-protrusions.

Holy Crap, Hemlock Grove is Good Now: Blood Pressure Recap

Jul
15

What the hell happened?! That was my final reaction watching the season premiere of Hemlock Grove. This might surprise you, given my past with the show, but this wasn't an exclamation of horror. I was shocked, shocked at how good the episode was. This is what Hemlock Grove should have been all last season. Raising questions, but giving answers. Showing the darkness, but not bringing everything to light.

Today on The View of all places, Marvel announced that there's going to be a new Thor, and she's a woman. While they haven't revealed their specific plans for the character yet, we do know that for some reason, the old Thor (Man-Thor?) is no longer worthy to wield Mjolnir.

Track of the Day: Dusty, Dazey, Southwest Blues

Jul
15

Sound Sweet Sound, what sound might that be? It's a benign band name as far as they go and could signal pretty much any sort of sound, but no matter what they called themselves, not much can prepare you for their epic, acid western track "Up to You," which sounds straight from the Tex-Mex border regions, but SSS actually hails from Toulouse. And I just love it when that happens . . .

Jurassic World Brochure Reveals Park Attractions, Rides, and Dinosaurs!

Jul
15

For the first time in franchise history, Jurassic World will actually feature a functioning Dino-park, complete with attractions, and visitors, and all of the trappings of a real-life theme park. In fact, as our previous sneak peaks at the film showed, the filmmakers have gone the extra mile in building particularly elaborate sets, complete with fully-stocked gift shops and park facilities. As a big theme-park enthusiast, this is particularly exciting for me, as it means being able to pore over all of the movie's cool props, like this leaked park brochure.
