The Upcoming Justice League Movie
Over the past few years, we have seen an unprecedented explosion in the popularity of superheroes. What used to be reserved for the “comic book geeks” has become mainstream cool. The superheroes can be found everywhere, from several popular series on Netflix, the Avengers having huge success, and of course Batman and Superman movies always seem to be blockbuster hits. Even online casinos have gotten into the act, with popular online slots games that feature everything from original Superman movies …
The Best Sports Films Of All Time
Our friends over at SBO.net have put together an interesting infographic looking at the best sports movies of all time! Million Dollar baby scores highly! I was a little surprised about the placing of some of my favourite movies like Rocky, Escape to Victory and a few others. What do you think of the list and do you agree with the placement's of the movies? Have they missed any movies out? See infographic here …
Baby Driver - Movie Review
Baby Driver - Edgar Wright's heist thriller drives to a unique beat of its own precise making. As I sat down to watch Baby Driver, I had a moment of fear. What if this film disappoints me, if it doesn't meet my unnecessarily high expectations. I only have myself to blame, I've followed the entire progress of this film, since it was announced. I clamoured for every poster, every trailer, because everything about it excited me! I need not have …
Wonder Woman – Movie Review
As the world makes progress and gets increased awareness in the liberal fields and feminism it’s no wonder, pun intended, that Wonder Woman got to hit the big screens. Being the ultimate feminist icon for superheroes it was a very wise move to launch this franchise in this day and age. And they did it very well. After “Batman vs Superman” everyone was expecting Wonder Woman to be the next DC-inspired film to fill the theatres. With BvS receiving mostly …
Robin: What's In A Name?
In years gone by it seems as though every superhero used to have a sidekick - Green Arrow had Speedy (also known as Red Arrow & Arsenal), Captain America had Bucky, Aquaman had Aqualad and Aquagirl, The Flash had Kid Flash but no sidekick is more famous or more revered than The Boy Wonder himself, Robin. Throughout DC's continuity there have been SIX iterations of Robin and what I want to do today is focus on the four most well-known of these …
Cable aka Soldier X
Nathan Christopher Charles Summers' destiny was planned before his parents even met. Geneticist Mr. Sinister found that a union between the X-Men Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Jean Grey (Marvel Girl) would produce a powerful genetically superior mutant. Sinister hoped he could control such a mutant and use it to defeat his immortal adversary, Apocalypse. Around this time Jean's form and consciousness was replaced by the reckless cosmic Phoenix Force while she healed from radiation poison in a cocoon at the …
X-23: Wolverine's "Daughter"
I haven't been this excited for a film in a long time. Wolverine is a huge favorite of mine and with the plot line seemingly having his “daughter” X-23 in it I thought I would provide background info on her origins, how she became the new Wolverine etc. With Hugh Jackman hanging up the claws after this movie he very well may die, as he does in the comic books. Having Dafne Keen, who plays Laura Kinney aka X-23 in …
Logan - Movie Review
The Logan I've been waiting for! It's been a a while since I've been moved by a movie, even longer since one made me well up at the end. We'll get to that in a moment. Logan shouldn't be put in a category or genre of a comic book film even though its main characters are comic book icons. It's a drama that will make you laugh, cry and think about your whole life and what's its purpose and meaning are. …
Legion: Professor X's Powerhouse
I started watching the new FX series "Legion" and with that in mind I'd thought I share some info on who Legion aka David Charles Haller really is. I have high hopes for this show and I wanted to share some of his background and how he got his powers. I don't know if the show will follow his comic book exploits but I'm sure there will be examples pulled from them. So sit back and enjoy reading about this …
The Green Lanterns of Sector 2814
My love of the Green Lantern(s) is no secret (partly because I think I mention it on every single podcast that we do) and it's a franchise which has had a bit of a rough time over the last few years. We don't need to speak about the 2011 film which caused so much hate and arguably derailed Warner Bros plans for a DC Extended Universe before it even got off the ground but the comics also featured a Rebirth …

AI Comic Pod: Episode 48 - Batman Begins
Rory and Stu return to cover the groundbreaking Batman Begins. The first film in Christopher Nolan's pioneering Dark Knight Trilogy, which despite being 12 years old, hasn't aged a day. It's often overshadowed by the sequel which followed, but this film stands alone for the telling the real origin of the Batman, something not seen before. With a beautifully crafted script, delivered brilliantly by a stellar cast. Stunning filming locations and production. A searing score by Hans Zimmer, which sets the tone for drama that unfolds, it truly is a spectacular feat of filmmaking.
