Reviews

Godzilla (2014) – “Godzilla delivers plenty of thrills and will entertain audiences with a certain degree of patience. The first half of the film relies on a strong cast selling a somewhat lackluster premise, but the spectacle of the second half more than makes up for any shortcomings that precede it.”

Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails (Wii U) – “Scram Kitty is a fun, but tough game. Once you wrap your head around the game’s mean hook, I believe you will be addicted. And for $10 bucks you really can’t go wrong trying it out.”

Wolverine #6 – “This is a very fast paced issue; a lot seems to happen in a very short time and the pacing works very well with the artwork. “

Justice League United #1“Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone deliver yet another fun book that showcases what we can expect from this title.”

All-New X-men #27All-New one-ups the excitement by bringing back great characters introduced in the equally amazingBatte of the Atom”

Fantastic Four #4“I am really enjoying Robinson’s take on these characters and things with him behind the helm things are certainly going to get worse before they get better.”

Tales from The Con #1 – “Overall this comic has many more funny bits than duds.  It may have worked better as a web comic seeing these strips pop up over the course of a year than to go through them all at once, but most of it still works.”

Shutter #2“ To get technical about it; I likey.”
