As we inch closer to Christmas, Hasbro Gaming is making its latest effort to breathe new life into its classic board games.  The new idea is mash-ups of classics, combining two games into one, which should tap into the nostalgia of long-time players.  The game company is taking its recently developed game Speak Out and […]

Review by C.J. Bunce Dread.  That’s what you’ll feel in the first two episodes of Netflix’s new series, Archive 81.  And it only gets worse (or better?).  It’s about a man repairing destroyed videotapes.  So immediately you’ll think it could be like the supernatural horror of The Ring.  It’s about a small community of isolated […]

Review by C.J. Bunce How do you get your kicks?  Maybe you buy them online, maybe at a mall shoe store, or a classic locally owned standalone shop.  Wherever you buy your sneakers, tennis shoes, running shoes, however you define them and whatever you call them, they are as personal a purchase as anything you […]

    Review by C.J. Bunce Quentin Tarantino’s first novel is clearly not the stuff of a first time writer, and it has plenty to say.  Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the twice Academy Award-winning writer taking another look at his grandiose mix of Hollywood fairy tale, historical pop culture nostalgia trip, and […]

   A unique space fantasy heroine finds herself aligning with a classic pulp fantasy heroine in Dynamite‘s latest mash-up mini-series, Barbarella/Dejah Thoris, with its first issue arriving in comic book stores today.  How exactly do you put together two characters from such different source material?  A magic artifact, of course!  When Barbarella and Dejah encounter […]

  Review by C.J. Bunce Tokyo 1996–an alien invasion threatens Earth.  Godzilla emerges to seemingly defend against the invaders, who call themselves the Xiliens, but the humans target Godzilla and he is seized by the aliens.  A test pilot, Captain Daitan Matushita and a cyborg scientist named Hoshi–both working for a mad scientist named Doctor […]

Review by C.J. Bunce Director Sam Raimi was constrained by the comic books with his three Spider-Man movies, but Kevin Fiege and Marvel Studios let him unleash everything for his latest superhero movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.  The result is fantastic, the most ambitious crossover mash-up and blend of comic book characters […]
