Comic Review: Witch Doctor: Mal Practice #1

Witch Doctor Mal Practice #1

Witch Doctor: Mal Practice #1
Written by Brandon Seifert
Art by Lukas Ketner
Colors by Andy Troy
Letters by Brandon Seifert
Image Comics
Release Date November 28, 2012
Price: $2.99

Witch Doctor: Mal Practice begins with Dr. Vincent Morrow in his lab battling what can only be described as a severe case of demon larvae infection. Think one of Cthulhu's many brethren only pink, gigantic, erupting from a young man's chest, and mad as all hell. This possession case is the perfect introduction into Morrow's world.

Dr. Morrow feverishly works on a cure, Penny Dreadful supernaturally sedates the host and paramedic Eric Gast operates the physical containment apparatus. (That's the Diablosuction Pump in magic/medical terms.) This easily establishes everything we need to know about our heroes in a one page spread. We get to see our heroes doing what they do best. And what they do best is daring do against the forces of infectious darkness. [...]

Geek Peek: First Look At Tom Hardy As Mad Max In ‘Fury Road’

Posted: 21 Dec 2012 03:00 PM PST

Mad Max Image

Remember way back in 2009 when very few of us knew who Tom Hardy was, when we found out that he would be taking the place of Mel Gibson as Mad Max in George Miller's fourth movie in the post-apocalyptic franchise, titled Mad Max: Fury Road.

The movie has been in the making for quite some time, indeed, and it's not even being released until sometime in 2014. Hardy has become one a superstar in that time, and only continues to grow, which can only mean very good things for the new Mad Max flick. [...]

‘The Walking Dead’ Gets A Season 4; Glen Mazzara Steps Down As Showrunner

Posted: 21 Dec 2012 11:40 AM PST

The Walking Dead Image

Not that it should come as any great shock to anyone familiar with how much of a wildfire hit AMC's The Walking Dead is, but the network has officially greenlighted season four of the series, which tells the stories of survivors of a zombie apocalypse and their constant battle to stay alive.

What may come as a shocker, is that Glen Mazzara, the man who stepped in for creator Frank Darabont as showrunner when he was fired, is not also stepping down from his position.

Movie Review: This Is 40

Posted: 21 Dec 2012 10:00 AM PST

This Is 40 Poster

This Is 40
Directed by Judd Apatow
Written by Judd Apatow
Starring: Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, John Lithgow, Megan Fox, Albert Brooks
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 134 minutes
Release Date: December 21st, 2012

In Judd Apatow's latest film, This Is 40, the writer/director revisits characters he created in 2007's Knocked Up and examines the foibles of marriage.

Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) are a married couple in their 40s with children (Mann's real-life daughters, Maude and Iris Apatow) under pressure, both economic and emotional.

This sort-of sequel to Knocked Up is Apatow's first directorial effort since 2009's Funny People. The filmmaker has been busy producing films like Get Him to the Greek, Bridesmaids, and The Five-Year Engagement - movies that fulfill the director's artistic mission to masterfully blend requisite adult humor and emotional depth all while exploring immaturity and characters who are forced to accept the curveballs life throws at them and adapt.

Remembering The Late, Innovative Musician-Of-All-Trades Frank Zappa On His Birthday

Posted: 21 Dec 2012 09:30 AM PST

Frank Zappa

Today is the birthday of one of music's more original voices, the one and only late great Frank Zappa, a musical maverick who spanned 3 decades, who created a sonic jambalaya of genres, which he drew and quartered, sifted through a meat grinder, reconstructed, deconstructed it, and threw it up in the air and let the musical notes fall where they may; a producer, record company mogul, and progenitor who gave genesis to ions upon ions of musicians who followed in his footsteps directly or indirectly; and on top of all this, the cherry on his layer cake was enhanced by the fact that he was one downright kick ass guitar player, arguably one of the finest of all time and of all genres, the incomparable crazy, mad genius about town, about globe, and about universe.

The catalog and work of Frank Zappa is impossible to break down here in a short tribute such as this; there really isn't, save for an immensely scant couple of singles and radio songs, much accessible or friendly to the casual listener or layman. For the most part, to them, Frank Zappa remains a total and unequivocal enigma, misunderstood with the music he parlayed, leaving listeners completely perplexed and turned off, quickly dismissing his work as noisy, jumbled arrangements which have no rhyme or reason to them, sung in a droning, bored vocal style via Zappa himself. In short, it was primarily a black eye on more "high brow" classical music, which they firmly believe that Zappa was simply parodying with dripping contempt and sarcasm. These examples couldn't be further from the truth [...]

Game Review: Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution Image

Hitman: Absolution
Xbox 360 l PS3 l PC
DEVELOPER: IO Interactive
PUBLISHER: Square Enix
Rated M
RELEASE DATE: November 20, 2012

Six long years. That's how long fans of the Hitman video game franchise have waited for this. And finally, Hitman: Absolution arrived this year.

Six years is a very long time to wait for the next installment in a game series you adore, indeed, as fans of Hitman and Bethesda games can very well tell you. For we who have anxiously awaited the chance to once again slip on the gloves of Agent 47, watching in stunned silence as not one but two Kane & Lynch games were made instead, the moment we finally got our hands on it could only be described as blissful.

This also comes with a healthy dose of bias, even for those trying to be as objective as possible such as myself, as Absolution was going to have to be an unfathomable disaster for fans to be unsatisfied. Still, while the game has a lot to be happy about, there were still some minor flaws to overcome. [...]
