Valiant continues to deliver 0

Its not a secret that Valiant is doing some great work since their reboot a few years ago. I am only a recent fan having been reading their work for under one year but nearly all of their titles have been great and I've never read a bad title.And this is of course no exception.The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage introduces us to Shan Fong, aka Doctor Mirage. Although the original character was in fact male, this new one is female. And the original character has now been Shan's now deceased Husband....

Simply Legendary 0

This is simply one of the greatest single issues in the history of comics. And to think its just the start of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run.The issue is told from Florinic Man's , aka Dr Woodroe's perspective. Swamp Thing has been captured and it is up to the Dr to do a thorough examination of Swampy and figure out what he is.We are taken on a journey as his autopsy begins. The Dr learns as much as possible about Swamp Thing, including but not limited to his internal organs and their similarities...

Never Again 8

Must like the last page of this book, this is one of the great works of fiction that you never want to read again. The story is very much like Schindler's List (in more ways than one) in which the tale is so heart breaking that you don't want to hear it. Yet what happens needs to be said.If you ever want to understand just how tragic life could get, this story is a great example of that. Magneto as we all know and love, grows up Germany and Poland during the WW2 era as a Jew, and its quite possi...

So Says Doctor Doom... 0

If ever you find yourself looking to learn more about Doom - Books of Doom is probably the best place to start. The Books are a retelling / updated telling of Doom's Origin, originally total by Stan Lee way back when (most of us) were nothing but twnkles in the eyes.There's really not a whole lot to say. Brubaker completely succeeds and delivers an epic story chronicling Victor's life from a child to an adolescent to eventually the man (if I am allowed to call him that) we all know and love tod...

GotG Review. 16

PositivesHonestly? My biggest positive of this film is Groot - which is a good and bad thing. He is easily the most charming and entertaining character of the whole movie. Its simple and it works. His interactions are very well handled and timed and the way Rocket sort of gives insight to what more he is saying is pretty funny. Especially the mid credit scene - which is hilariously cute. Star-Lord is also a pretty nice character, but even though he was clearly suppose to be the lead and most im...

Apes on Horses! 0

So I finally got around to seeing this. I know I'm late, I had plans to go right away but they fell through with some of my buddies and they were being annoying so I finally just up and went by myself (technically I took my little brother, but whatever)So lets get into it!Positives First and foremost the CGI and motion capture in this film is absolutely wonderful and apparent. The apes movements and most especially facial expressions are a joy to watch and absorb.And speaking of which, Caeser is...

Best X-Men Movie? 23

As usual, if you're reading one of my reviews you know I don't like to avoid spoilers. I don't review things so you can decide if you want to see it, I review it to share my opinions of it and that will require going into various amounts of detail. I'm not going to lay out the plot, point by point, but I'm not going to dance around things either.Lets get the bad stuff out of the way. Its always good to end on a positive note and this section is going to be short anyway. Ready?Nothing. Yes. I sai...

A Monster? No...a God. 3

I'm not going out of my way to avoid spoilers, so read at your discretion. Summer is definitely here, because we're getting a blockbuster every week now. I love this time of year!I know a lot of us were excited for this film as well, since Godzilla is a pretty huge (neener) franchise and the last "Godzilla" gave everyone a huge bad taste in their mouth. Legendary had its work cut out for them to erase that and they accomplished it for sure. Wasn't a real surprise given how they handled Pacific R...

I can't think of a catchy title at the moment... 9

The review will contain spoilers.First ImpressionsI was highly anticpating this movie, especially for the past two weeks hearing about it on the forums from all the overseas people who got to see it early (sigh).In any case the movie kicks off right away reminding me why I prefer this franchise to the former...Garfield's performance as Spidey is better than ever. I can't stress enough how well he embodies the character in this film, its soooo good.Another thing that everyone was fretting over r...

How did I not know about this earlier? 14

So in case you didn't notice, my name is Fallschirmjager (German paratrooper). Its been my internet name for a very, very, long time. Nearly half my life.Although their are multiple reasons, one of the bigger ones is biggest I am rather huge history buff - particular military history. Germany has a very rich military history and one of the most interesting is the Fallschirmjagers.Suffice to say, I am a fan.Given that, I have no idea how I failed to notice this comic.Uber is a fictional alternate...

Basically, Ed was right. 6

***This review will contain spoilers***A few months ago, Ed Brubaker came out and said this was the best Marvel movie ever made. I don't know if he was talking just Disney or all Marvel films ever, but either way he's completely correct.Where to start, where to start...? I don't even know.This movie is absolutely fantastic. It finally feels like the right balance of action, plot, comedy and character development that Marvel has been all over the place (especially recently). As many of us feel Th...

THIS. IS. SPARTA! ... well not really 7

Disclaimer: This will have massive spoilers. You've been warnedSo the movie that feels like it should have came out 3 years ago is finally here! I was pretty excited for it myself. While not a great example of story telling the first 300 was a thoroughly enjoyable film combined awesome visual action with some all-time great one liners. I mean come on, how many people have not seen a 300 inspired meme? They are so many great lines in that film, even if they are cheesy.For starters, 300: Rise of ...

Yeah, I'm staying. 5

So a few issues ago J.H. Willaims left Batwoman and it was fairly publicized (for reasons I'm not going to get into).And then all of a sudden there was worry on the horizon as if fans would want to stay on the title. J.H. had done such wonderful work with Kate, giving us good stories and arguably the best artwork being done in DC's New 52 right now. (seriously if you haven't checked out the first 24 issues of Batwoman, do it. They're gorgeous) By now of course we've seen two pretty damn good is...

Falls' review of The Wolverine (with Spoilers) 13

So I know this movie came out in theaters earlier this summer, but I was at a relative's over said weekend and was not able to post my thoughts right away. I may or may not have be drunk as well...Luckily the DVD came out like last week or whatever and since I was bored tonight, I decided to rent the movie and do a review of it. I like to end things on a positive note, so lets get the bad stuff out of the way first.Also since this movie is now out on DVD I'm not going to bother being careful ab...

Falls reviews Thor: The Dark World 2

Yeah...its another review. You've probably read dozens all ready but too bad here's another one!******* Note - this review will include heavy spoilers. I do not recommend reading it if you have not seen the film. ********Lets get the bad things out of the way first, so we can end on a good note.Things I HatedMy biggest problem is, at no point during the movie did I feel like things weren't going to be ok. I felt no emotions when watching either Malekith or Kurse - and its not to say the actors w...
