Later this year we will say goodbye to the twelfth Doctor. Sometime around Christmas, in a blinding golden flash the combat eyebrows and Scottish brogue will be gone and replaced with someone new. Our guitar wielding punk rock alien savior dressed as a rock and roll magician will move on to his next regeneration (possibly ginger we don’t know yet, but I mean he could be ginger next, right?) But let’s not focus on that just yet because with series 10 really just begining we have a lot of Peter Capaldi‘s tenure as Doctor Who to enjoy.
This weekend, the good Doctor is visiting the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo and if I do say so myself he’s in fine form and shows no signs of slowing down just yet. However, as the hundreds that attended his panel made clear, we are already starting to prepare for his 4 years of saving the universe to draw to a close. Here’s a few highlights. (more…)
Since the controversial Netflix original 13 Reasons Why was released March 31st, it’s been hard not to notice all the controversial topics the show has raised up such as suicide, bullying, rape, and even the tiny details leading up to a school shooting. Before we begin, for those of you who haven’t seen the show, this is definitely spoiler material, so avert thine eyes, grab some popcorn, get informed, and come back when you’ve joined the vast majority.

In a Marvel film, you can always count on a few things. It’s going to be entertaining as hell, and there will no doubt be a Stan Lee cameo. Considered the godfather of Marvel (and comic books in general), Stan Lee is responsible for giving us most of the characters we hold dear to our hearts. Although the 94-year-old has since retired from his position at Marvel, he almost always has made cameos in the films based on his properties.
With two big hits already this year with Split and Get Out, no one is going to doubt the capacity of Blumhouse to crank out horror hits. Blumhouse is now a big name in horror, but no one has more name cache in the genre than Stephen King, whose work is in the midst of a kind of Hollywood renaissance right now with the pending release of The Dark Tower and It later this year. Combining King and Blumhouse seems like common sense, which is why it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that their forces are about to be combined on a new version of Firestarter. (more…)
We really haven’t heard much from Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman since the trailer a few weeks ago, but last night Warner Bros. dropped a couple new TV spots to help tide us over until the Guardians of the Galaxy hub-bub dies down. Seriously, why bother trying to be heard in all that wonderful Marvel madness, it would be a waste of good money. Now when May 8th hits, expect the Wonder Woman marketing floodgates to open. Until then, we might get a few dribs and drabs and even those look very promising, Patty Jenkins should deliver quite the DC movie, perhaps the best to date. (more…)
After a week off, presumably to prolong the agony, Riverdale returned this week with a highly consequential episode, one that seemed to set up the final revelation of Jason Bloom’s killer. To get there though, we had to indulge in more suspicion of F.P. Jones, more creepiness in the Blossom household, and more drama in the Andrews home as Archie dealt with the return of his mom, and growing feelings of desire for Veronica. Guess which one was more the priority for the red-headed scamp? (more…)
Even though there’s already one incarnation of the Flash is still racing around multiple universes on the CW, DC is no stranger to the concept of simultaneous dimensions and, as such, are creating a whole new Flash on the big screen. Ezra Miller‘s portrayal of the scarlet speedster has already made a cameo in Justice League, but his own story has so far proven elusive. At the moment, his solo movie is due for release in 2020, but there is a lot left to do in that time before it’ll be ready to go. (more…)
When The Boondock Saints hit theaters in 1999, it became an instant hit. Fans begged for another foray into the Saints’ world and their wish was granted when The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was finally released in 2009. Now, eight years later, the Saints are back at it… sort of. This time around, the Saints are coming back in the form of a prequel on television and the fans can get directly involved!
