backtothefuture

Last year was 2015, the furthest point in the future that our time travel friends from Back to the Future journeyed to in the epic trilogy. It’s enough to make you think about the possibility of a reboot. Think about it! What a great homage would it be to remake Back to the Future? Set it today with a new Marty McFly going back to the 80s and meeting his parents then, in the era the original movie is set in. It’s an idea, admittedly, that’s not likely to fly, especially with the producer of the original movie series. In fact, the phrase, “Over my dead body” comes to mind. (more…)

The sequel to the 1982 Puppet-fueled fantasy classic The Dark Crystal is finally here! Not as a film as many had hoped for, but rather in the form of a 12-issue comic book series entitled The Power of The Dark Crystal, stemming from the un-produced screenplay by David Odell, Annette Odell, and Craig Pierce. The comic itself will be brought to us by Boom! Studios and Henson Company

If you were a child of the 80’s then Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal was a quintessential part of your filmic fantasy movie going life! If you were not a child of the 80’s then stop making the rest of us feel old and immediately go ask your parents to show you this classic piece of puppet history. Now that we’re all on board, let’s talk about the upcoming sequel.  (more…)

flash-and-green-arrow
“Skirt!” Best. Line. Ever. This week’s episode of The Flash continued the “Invasion” crossover happening on all of the DC Universe/CW television shows. Even though the event began with Supergirl, the core of the story is in this episode.

But this review is all about The Flash. That being said, it will be a long time before this writer calls any other episode of The Flash “the best.”

nintendo-theme-park

It is nearing two years since Universal Parks and Resorts announced that it would be teaming up with Nintendo to build a theme park based on some of gaming’s best known characters and stories. First revealed in May 2015, it came at a time when the new consoles at the time weren’t doing too well in terms of sales and Amiibos were some of the best selling Nintendo products. Now, with the success of numerous Pokémon games throughout the year and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild eagerly anticipated, it seems like the perfect time to get people excited about visiting a real life Nintendo adventure.
