Get your mind out of the gutter. We’re talking about ACTUAL dragons, not George R.R. Martin’s…um…

Anyway, Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin has spoiled just how big Daenerys Targaryen’ dragons could get when they aren’t tiny, scaly, fire-burping babies anymore. Martin posted the above image, along with an an excerpt from his upcoming companion piece, The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the World of Game of Thrones. The image shows Aegon the Conqueror riding his dragon Balerion the Black Dread and is quite explicit in its depiction of the beast.

Even if you’re not a religious Arrowhead like me, you’ve still likely been drawn in to the amazing writing and execution of the latest season of CW’s Arrow series. The first season was pretty rocky, but they’ve stepped up their game and have been delivering some seriously quality television. But with only five episodes left, it’s about time to start wondering what they plan on doing for season 3. Luckily, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg has stepped up to talk a little bit about the show and where they might be taking it.  (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ – S02E19 – “The Man Under The Hood”

- 04-17-14Comics, Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Sarah Moran

arrow-s02-e19

Two weeks ago, Arrow dropped some serious bombshells. Not only did Slade (Manu Bennet) continue to wage war on Oliver (Stephen Amell), but he revealed to Thea (Willa Holland) her true parentage and told Laurel (Katie Cassidy) The Arrow’s secret identity. Last night’s episode mostly dealt with the repercussions of those bombshells, but the progression of events plodded along in such a way it was difficult to ever really appreciate any developments. There was simply too much going on in “The Man Under The Hood” to give any of its interesting threads the time and energy required. (more…)

It was with a lot of disappointment (and admittedly some jubilation on the other hand) that Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith regenerated into Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi at the end of the Doctor Who Christmas special this past December. And although Capaldi’s adventures as the Time Lord don’t kick off on television till later this year, those already missing space and time fairing with Eleven will be pleased to know that you’ll be able to carry on with the bow-tie clad hero… In comic book form!

Oh fuck off.

I’m sorry. It’s early (for me at least), I’m grumpy and Roman Polanski still stands as one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. He was an artist who could wring a moment for all of the dread and paranoia it was worth; a consummate cinematic purveyor of disquiet and angst. Now, in their infinite wisdom, some NBC Executives have decided that they should remake his seminal 1968 masterpiece into a two-part miniseries event! Starring Zoe Salanda (Avatar) and some bland white actor who isn’t the great John Cassavetes (Google tells me he’s Patrick J. Adams from Suits?)! Today we get a quick look at the redux, which promises a very polished and sanitized version of the icky weirdness Polanski perfected over thirty-five years ago.

Fargo

The story may be engrossing and the world may be singular, but it’s the varied and deep characters that make the premiere episode of Fargo — FX’s new 10 episode event series loosely tied to the Coen brothers theatrical masterpiece of the same name — truly astonishing.  (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ – Episode 18 – “Providence”

“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.

It looks like yet another Vertigo title will be heading to the television screen, folks. We’ve already heard about Constantine and Preacher, and Sandman is getting the movie treatment, so it only makes sense that DC’s mature comic line would be generating even more interest from the industry world. The newest addition to the family is a series called Scalped and it will be coming to WGN America. (more…)
