Unboxed: The January 2015 Loot Crate – #Rewind

LOOT CRATE January 2015 REWIND

Now that 2015 has fully rung itself in, let’s make with something new in the way of an all new Loot Crate! If you haven’t already heard, subscription box services are quickly becoming a popular ‘thing‘ and Loot Crate is arguably one of the more popular ones available. Once a month, and for less than $20 USD including shipping, the guys and gals at Loot Crate fill up a little black box with geeky nerdy little things just for you! Pretty sweet of them if you ask me. Plus, they promise that each box will be of at least $40 USD in value!

Now, before you grumble about how they clearly sent this to me for free, (and I will obviously say nice fluffy, buttery things about them for doing that) they didn’t. I am paying for this service, so my twenty bucks (well… more like $30 since I am a Canadian, but anyway,) my cash is on the line just like yours. Did January’s Loot Crate satiate my nerdy cravings? Will I find what my geeky heart desires? Let’s open the thing up and see… (more…)

TV Review: ‘Arrow’ – S3E10 – “Left Behind”

- 01-22-15Comics, Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 9.38.27 AM

If “The Climb” had all the emotion and decisiveness of a season finale, then “Left Behind,” the winter premiere of Arrow, had all the forward momentum and drive of a season premiere. New motivations were discovered, the status quo was shaken up, and everything we were led to think happened, actually happened with some slight adjustment. Emotionally impacting, but still not short on any action, Arrow began 2015 with a simple, but pointed question: Can Arrow still be Arrow without Arrow? In other news, a new villain arrives with big plans, an old villain sees his plans fall apart, and a new hero borrows an old identity to become the latest Starling City resident to kick ass and take names.

TV REVIEW: ‘The Flash’ – S1E10 – “Revenge Of The Rogues”

Flashfeature1

There is very little doubt that comic book fans and television fans alike are absolutely infatuated with The Flash’s inaugural season.  The series currently sits at a very hefty 96% approval over at Rotten Tomatoes (a site that is known as much for internet trolls and naysayers as it is for its “freshness” scores) and it even took home the 2014 People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama.  After one of the more successful mid-season finales on television, fans of the CW series were chomping at the bit to get back to the adventures of Barry Allen, and after a month long hiatus, those fans got their wish with Revenge of the Rogues.  Was it worth the wait?  In a word: abso-fucking-lutely.  Spoilers ahead.

TV REVIEW: ‘Gotham’ S1E12 – “What the Little Bird Told Him”

Gotham1

Coming out the mid-season break, Gotham left a little bit to be desired. ‘Rogue’s Gallery’ was on the less spectacular side of things, ranking, in my opinion, near the bottom of the list as far as the series has gone thus far. As it turns out, however, it was really just a set-up. With ‘What the Little Bird Told Him’, Gotham returns in full force. And with Ben Edlund penning the script for this one, it has turned out to be one of the best installments of the show. Read on for all the details. (more…)

TV REVIEW: ‘Agent Carter’ S1E3 – “Time And Tide”

- 01-14-15Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

AgentCarterep2feature1

This week’s episode of ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’ seeks to wrap up a couple loose ends from the previous show “Bridge And Tunnel.” It does that well enough while also creating a couple new frayed edges to mull over: a brutal murder, some insight on our friend Jarvis, and a mostly self-contained plot concerning more of Howard Stark’s stolen goods. Or stolen “bads,” because some of the work Stark’s been doing are questionable endeavors at best. It just gets worse for Peggy and her butler bestie as they go another round of “The Better We Do, The Worse Things Get.” After the jump, we find out what I mean by that. Welcome to SPOILER-TOWN!
