Oh look, a trailer for the next Avengers: Age of Ultron… trailer

A trailer for a trailer because we’d still eat this up anyway.

What do you think will Marvel tease us with next? Will we find ourselves with balls-to-the-wall action in the next Avengers movie?

Doctor Who: Last Christmas Trailer

In “Last Christmas,” the 2014 Doctor Who Christmas Special, the Doctor and Clara team up with Santa Claus and his elves to save the universe. Pretty much a great idea. Can’t wait for Christmas so I can watch this.

Also, if they won’t use the Wham! song in this episode, I will be severely disappointed, Moffat.

Ade’s Christmas Wishlist 2014

Oh look, it’s December! What do you want for Christmas? I’m pretty sure you have a great wishlist. But since we’re on the topic, how about you check out the things I want for Christmas?

Fender Jaguar Bass

I have a dream bass every year, and it changes a lot. This is this year’s dream bass, Seriously, look at that sexy beast. It’s either the Jaguar or this fantastic Rickenbacker that I still have not given up on owning.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Teaser Trailer is here!

I seriously never thought I’d see another new Star Wars movie in my lifetime. But here it is, The Force Awakens, and it’s coming next year. And it looks like it’s taken the best parts of the original trilogy and set the dial to 11.

So go and click play, and may the force be with you.

But let’s talk about that lightsaber. How awesome is that one? And who else got goosebumps when the Star Wars theme came on?

Are you excited for The Force Awakens? Let me know in the comments!

Batman: Zero Year [Review]

Three years after DC introduced wide, sweeping changes to their mythos by way of the New 52, I’ve remained pretty indifferent to what DC has to offer. Mainly because I feel that the previous DVD was a rich universe full of legacy and history, and at the same time insanely accessible.

I became a DC fan not because their stories were dumbed down for people who knew only the barest facts about Batman and Superman. I became a DC fan because the universe these characters inhabited was so large, and had a vibrant past that you could spend weeks reading up on the rich history of, say, the Flash and see where Wally West has come with the mantle’s legacy.

Another reason why I didn’t welcome the New 52 with open arms was a bit more personal – these are the version of the characters I grew up with. No matter what you do, no matter what you change, John Byrne’s Superman or Frank Miller’s 80’s Batman will still be my favorite interpretations of these characters. Batman: Year One, to me, is the closest a Batman story can get to perfection. It’s a smart, concise take on Batman’s origins set in the backdrop of the 80’s crime wave. It smartly jettisons the bloat Batman has accumulated over the decades and gave us an origin that made sense in a more mature and realistic world.¬†And it worked. The Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy owed a lot to Frank Miller’s Batman. The Batman stories coming from Year One tried to emulate the grittiness with varying results. Continue reading

Doctor Who: Death In Heaven [Review]

The last time I’ve seen a Doctor Who finale this satisfying was with The Big Bang from way back in 2010. Death In Heaven is a fantastic, if subdued, finale that neatly ties almost all of the ideas¬†that were introduced with Peter Capaldi’s first outing as the Doctor. I wasn’t able to review the entirety of Doctor Who series 8 because I was either too busy or was experiencing website issues. So sit back, and I’ll talk about Death In Heaven and the first eleven episodes that led us here.

Warning: spoilers after this point.

What's On My Mobile Game Playlist?

I haven’t been playing games as much as I used to, mainly because life caught up with me. I don’t have time beyond swiping out my phone in the middle of the commute and sneaking a peek at a game now and then. Yes, people, I have a life. Or maybe I sleep too much when I’m not working. I don’t know.

Anyway, here are some of the games on mobile I’ve been playing lately.

Doctor Who Series 8 Starts in 8 Days!

I don’t know about you, but it’s been far too long since we’ve had a proper Doctor Who fix. We were left hanging after Matt Smith regenerated into Peter Capaldi way back in December’s The Time of the Doctor. Now it’s eight days before August 23, and we’ll get to watch Capaldi play a reportedly darker Doctor.

Are you excited? I know I am. Sound off your thoughts in the comments!

New Superman Image From "Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Teases A Whole Lot Of Nothing

So last night, DC released this new image of Superman from the impossibly-titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

So here’s Superman standing and scowling at the rooftops of what appears to be Gotham City. Probably moments before Batman pounces on him and stabs him with a kryptonite knife.

So he has very minimal costume changes, but apparently a whole lot of fanboys have started to dissect the image and see what minuscule clues a heavily-photoshopped image can provide for the plot of a movie that is coming out in two years. Continue reading

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" Review: Full of heart, but still leaves you cold

I absolutely enjoyed the first Amazing Spider-Man. Sure, it had its faults – mainly being a reboot of a franchise that was still fresh in peoples’ minds, going through a lengthy origin story that was already tackled in depth by the Sam Raimi trilogy, and taking on almost the exact story beats that the first Spider-Man movie used, and an ultimately mediocre villain in Lizard – but it featured an origin that was faithful to the comics and a Peter Parker that was closer to the original Stan Lee characterization.

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS FOR AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Continue reading
