Comic Review: Archeologists Of Shadows, Vol. 2: Once A Nightmare

Release Date: September 10, 2012
Cover Price: $0.99

It's been about six months since I reviewed the first volume of this series but I was definitely looking forward to reading the sequel. Archeologists Of Shadows, Volume 2: Once  A Nightmare is just as entertaining and exceptional as the previous one. I wasn't sure what to expect after the way the first one left the story hanging but the followup was a delight.

We find our heroes, Baltimo and Alix, in a dreamworld at the beginning of this book. They are forced to go through trials of pain and fear to reach their destination. Unfortunately for them, not everyone cooperates on their quest. I will admit, the challenges they face individually are supposed to be introspective and to give us a better look at their personalities. Instead, we find ourselves aware of the results before the battles are finished. This doesn't detract from the storyline, but it is the one complaint I had in the entire comic. I love the story that Lara Fuentes is slowly telling, it has so many possibilities and is obviously far from over. The final scene will definitely leave you fiending for more [...]

Watch This: NSFW Trailer For ‘Movie 43′ Starring Nearly Everyone In Hollywood

Posted: 03 Oct 2012 05:00 PM PDT

Movie 43 Header- Leslie Libb, Justin Long, Jason Sudeikis

It's hard to describe a movie like Movie 43, because there is no actual place to start. The comedy is a collection of shorts and skits directed by – take a deep breath now – Patrick Forsberg, Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Tusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, and Brett Ratner. If you thought the directors list was big, just wait until you see the cast list.

This hilarious red band trailer features comedic acts that can only be described as vulgar, disgusting, provocative, offensive, and other repulsive adjectives you can think of. But it's all for the sake of comedy, and this red band trailer reveals that Movie 43 has the potential to be a daring comedy. Check out the trailer and the actors involved below.

The film stars so many people, that it's impossible to fit them in this opening text. Take a deeper breath than the one you took before, as this is the cast of Movie 43 [...]

Comic Review: The Goon #42

Release Date: September 26, 2012
Cover Price: $3.50

How in the hell have I been missing out on The Goon for so long?! I was just recently introduced to Eric Powell's excellent series and I was floored by this amazing throwback horror comic with a dark sense of humor.

The comic takes place in an alternate Depression-era setting where monsters lurk around every corner just looking to get the jump on the Goon and his partner in crime, Franky. The Goon is a thug who'd fit right in with Batman's rogue's gallery. Only here there's no Batman and the Goon will gleefully stomp a mudhole through whatever goblin crosses his path. This makes him a hero of sorts, but only because in a world brimming with demons, he's the lesser evil [...]

‘The Guilt Trip’ Trailer: Hilarious Bonding Between Seth Rogen & Barbra Streisand

Posted: 03 Oct 2012 03:00 PM PDT

The Guilt Trip Header

Road trips can forge bonds and build everlasting memories. But when that road trip is taken with your mom, things may get a little awkward towards the final destination. That's the basic premise for the new Anna Fletcher (The Proposal) comedy, The Guilt Trip. The film stars Seth Rogen as an inventor who must trek across the country promoting a brand new product, while his mother (Barbra Streisand) comes along for the ride.

Check out the first trailer here below.

Rogen seems to be turning in the raunchy humor he is so well known for, for an honest, genunine, toned-down comedy about a boy and his mother. I love how Rogen's character is just so frustrated with some of the things Streisand's character does. The two look like they have such wonderful chemistry, it's no surprise that we are seeing this film hit theaters on Christmas Day [...]

Comic Review: Voltron #8

Release Date: October 3, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Voltron #8 has a lot going on. While there's tons of action, drama, and giant robots, there may be a little TOO much going on for the comic's own good.

You can tell Brandon Thomas loves Voltron. And I mean LOVES Voltron. In some cases, that's a very good thing. In some cases, writers are so in love with the property or franchise that they're writing that they turn a blind eye to the basics of comic writing, and I think that may be the case here. I'll be the first to admit, I've missed the past couple of issues, but I really liked the way this series started out. Upon reading this issue, I'm not finding the same fun series that's full of mysteries that I remember. It's frustrating to not understand characters that you've known and loved since your childhood, but here, I'm finding that's the case. Prince Lotor is a bad guy who's really a good guy pretending to be a good guy who's hanging around with the evil witch Hagar who's trying to sway him back to being a bad guy. I think. Heck, you got me at this point. Hopefully, when the current story arc plays out, Thomas will get this book back to the basics, otherwise, I'm afraid it might start to lose even the hardest of hardcore Voltron fans [...]

Comic Review: The Bionic Man #13

The Bionic Man #13

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: September 26, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

The Bionic Man #13 continues the story that everyone's been waiting for. Bigfoot. The creative team has taken a lot of liberties with this one, and it really pays off. They blindside you with more surprises than you can handle. And hey, it's Bigfoot.

Writers Phil Hester and Aaron Gillespie really hit their marks this issue. It's the second chapter in the Bigfoot storyline and it shows NO signs of slowing down. There's some great twists and turns that you'll never see coming, as well as a healthy mix of mystery, action, and surprises. In fact, the last couple of pages are quite shocking, and it'll have you counting the days until the next issue. After the end of Kevin Smith's adapted screenplay in this title, I was very afraid that the title would flounder around looking for its own identity, but thanks to Phil Hester, it has flown seamlessly into a fantastic title that I want to read every month, no exceptions. And, this going beyond my love for the franchise, this is a very entertaining comic, that excels because it doesn't pretend to be something it's not. Look at the title and you know what you're getting into, the writers know that and give you exactly what you want. [...]

Alison Brie, Imogen Poots & More Vying For Role In ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’; Scarlett Johansson To Appear

Posted: 03 Oct 2012 10:59 AM PDT

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to begin principal photography in March 2013, with Chris Evans reprising his role as the titular hero and Anthony Mackie signed on to play The Falcon, directors Joe and Anthony Russo are still searching for an actress to play Captain America's love interest.

We previously reported that Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, and Imogen Poots were in the running for a mysterious role. No one could confirm it, but it was speculated that the mysterious role was that of Captain America's love interest. Not much has been heard since the report was made public, but it appears that Poots was the only one who tested well, as her name appears on new set shortlist of actresses vying for the role [...]

Watch Now: The First Trailer For ‘The Lone Ranger’ Starring Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer

The Lone Ranger Header

Having never seen the original TV show or heard any of the original radio broadcasts, I didn't know what to expect from Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger. The film stars Johnny Depp as Native American Spirit Warrior, Tonto, who must join forces with John Reid (Armie Hammer), to battle the evil that is fueled by greed and corruption. So after all the delays, script rewrites, and reworking the budget, we finally got our first look at The Lone Ranger.

Check out the first trailer for the film here below.

A director interpreting a property that looks radically different from the original is nothing new. But for those who were worried about all the problems that affected this film, it looks like this trailer should put their nerves at ease [...]

GoD List Banner

Each and every week "Alone Again, Naturally" Henchman21 reads a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. He looks forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn't? So, let's take a look into the depths of his pull lists, grab some comics, and he'll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of October 3rd, 2012. Single issues and trades, they're all here.

It's kind of a slow week dominated by a couple of big books from both of the major publishers. There's plenty to get excited about though, and plenty of books to check out. Beyond the books I list below, I would recommend Daredevil: End of Days #1 (especially if you were a fan of Brian Bendis' Daredevil run). You should also definitely pick up the Criminal Deluxe Edition Hardcover, Vol 2.

Let's see what books I went more depth into on this week's GoD List! [...]

Geek Peek: ‘Harry Potter’ Star Daniel Radcliffe Sprouts A Pair Of ‘Horns’

Posted: 03 Oct 2012 07:01 AM PDT

Daniel Radcliffe Horns Header Image

A new image has been released of Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe for his upcoming movie, Horns. And in the picture, quite fittingly to the movie's title, the actor is sporting his own impressive set.

The role appears to be a decidedly dark turn for the actor, who is playing Ignatius Perrish, or "Ig" for short. The character is accused of raping and murdering his girlfriend, leading to the horns---which give him the power to make people tell the truth and give in to their darkest desires---growing out of his skull.

Be sure to head on below to check out the full first image of Daniel Radcliffe in Horns. [...]
