The God of Thunder has returned! The whole gang is back even Loki! Ken Branagh's attempt capturing the hammer-wielding Avenger on film was grandiose if a bit cold. Alan Taylor steps in to the role of director this time around. Phase 2 of Marvel's master movie plan is in full effect people. Hit the jump for more.
The afterword of Doctor Sleep reveals that King approached this novel with great trepidation. How do you follow-up what is your most well-known work? It is considered a truly timless work of horror fiction from one of the true masters of the macabre. So how could a sequel truly measure up especially after so many years since it hit the scene? Doctor Sleep will surprise you.
The release of Ender's Game has been marred by controversy and, up until now, the focus has been less on the film and more on the political/social views of Orson Scott Card. It has finally come out, though, and its time to put the film to the test. Has the near thirty year wait for the film adaptation been worth it? Hit the jump for Scrivener's first audio review and listen for yourself.
Sam here, wanting you all to know I'm very sorry, but there's no Casey review this week. It wasn't the original plan, I'm just caught up in the middle of preparing a Very Special Podcast for Wednesday. The reviews will pick right back up where we left off, so stick around!
It's October! That means it's time for Apple to trot out the latest in software and hardware. Were there any surprises at all? Was it worth even paying attention to? Survey says.. YES.
It's Monday, so it's time for more Joe Casey goodness. Up today is the collection of Charlatan Ball!
Jodie Holmes' story is that of a woman in flux. We are presented the story of a woman's constantly changing identity and the extraordinary circumstance she's thrust into because of her unique "gift". She has been, since birth, linked to a supernatural entity named Aiden. Her life has been lived under the watchful eyes of those who would make use of her gifts for their own selfish and often destructive means. The journey that writer/director David Cage takes us on is harrowing, appalling at times but always enthralling. I couldn't stop. There are few experiences in the entire medium that I can compare it to.
