It’s a comix two-fer, Batman and Witchfinder!

Posted by Rob Noble March 6, 2011
Batman

Today’s quick comic review is going to be a two-fer, because I wanted to talk about Batman: The Return (which came last month) and also Sir Edward Grey, Witchfinder, which is fresh on the stands last week.  That one’s from Dark Horse, and I’m printing a Scott Allie interview next week, so I thought it [...]

The Adjustment Bureau – better than it looks!

Posted by Rob Noble February 27, 2011
The Adjustment Bureau

The latest big-budget Philip K Dick adaptation, The Adjustment Bureau, opens March 4th, but I’ve seen it already and wanted to give a heads up (but not a review) to anyone who thinks they might like it.  Worried that the trailer’s a little too shallow and crappy to actually be worth your time? Exhale – [...]

RIP, Dwayne McDuffie

Dwayne McDuffie

Aw man, Dwayne McDuffie has died.  A veteran of Marvel, DC and the founder of the Milestone funnybooks, he’d been responsible for some of the best, most ethnically-diverse characters and story arcs of the past 15 years.  I came on board as a DMD fan a little late, having given up on superhero comics through [...]

‘HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE’: an Indie Romance Comedy Done Right

Posted by Jon Wiener February 10, 2011
HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE

There has been a lot of buzz about HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE, the debut film from How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Radnor.  Though I tend to roll my eyes at the never-ending downpour of indie romance comedies that are churned out by the dozen, HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE surprised me with originality and above-average performances. It was hard, at first, [...]

Feel Free to Interrupt…

Doug Benson!

Doug Benson is busier than ever these days; touring the globe doing stand-up, regularly recording CDs/DVDs, recording his weekly podcast (Doug Loves Movies) and working on his television show, The Benson Interruption.  When he’s not doing all of that, he’s surely watching movies…probably with his friend “Mary Jane”. Benson has been in the entertainment industry [...]

POD PEOPLE: Jimmy Pardo

Posted by Eric Gosselin January 27, 2011
Jimmy Pardo!

As a comedian, Jimmy Pardo is hard to categorize: He’s simultaneously old-school yet cutting edge, confrontational yet self-deprecating. He would not seem out of place at a Dean Martin roast wearing a suit, or on the tiny stage of an alternative-comedy theater wearing a t-shirt. His act is a combination of written material, off-the-cuff riffs, [...]

Tammy Pescatelli is Coming to Your Telly!

Tammy Pescatelli!

I recently had the pleasure of having a chat with comedian Tammy Pescatelli.  She’s been in the business for years, appearing on television and across the country at countless comedy clubs.  Tammy’s latest passion is being a mother and wife – and her new experiences are giving her comedy a new perspective.  She never wanted [...]

Let’s talk about ‘Young Justice’ Ep0102

Posted by Rob Noble January 16, 2011
Young Justice

So last week saw the official 2-part premiere of Young Justice, the latest DC animated series from Warner Bros. For those of you needing a recap, see some of my thoughts here, but I’d like to do something other than a straight-up review. I’ll probably end up reviewing most (if not all) of the episodes [...]

Liked Gremlins? You’ll looooove Rare Exports

Posted by Rob Noble January 8, 2011
Rare Exports

The list of great, scary, funny Christmas horror movies that aren’t slasher flicks is pretty small.  There’s Gremlins, and there’s almost nothing else.  If someone’s got more names for the list, I’m drawing a blank.  Die Hard? Action, not horror.  Nightmare Before Christmas?  That’s Halloween, folks.   But now, we’ve got Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.  [...]

Incognito #2 takes you to the super-brothel!

Posted by Rob Noble January 8, 2011
Incognito 2

Incognito #2 hit the stands last week, and it’s about time. If you’re like me, you can’t get enough of Ed Brubaker’s hard-boiled anti-hero Zack Overkill. Once a supervillian, then a (lousy) fake semi-hero out on parole, this second volume finds Zack going undercover trying to find a former S.O.S agent who’s taken to carving [...]
