If X-men Origins: Wolverine, or X-Men Last Stand left less than a good taste in your mouth The Wolverine should help.

Turbo [Review]

Turbo [Review]

Turbo, the DreamWorks film about a snail that is fast enough to race in the Indy 500, is adorable, and highly enjoyable, if you are old enough to get the jokes.

Pacific Rim [Review]

Pacific Rim [Review]

If William Shakespeare wrote plays about giant monster-punching robots, it would look just like Pacific Rim, more or less. This is the film of the summer, and we should now feel bad for every other movie in the theatres for the next 60 days.

Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time issues 1-6 [Review]

Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time starts when a mysterious time traveler identifies the Doctor as a threat, or a personal enemy and is intent on isolating the doctor.

Quidditch, a serious game, for serious muggles.

Quidditch, a serious game, for serious muggles.

I’m going to take a slight detour from the regular fare here on WPR to talk about sports, Quidditch, to be specific.  It’s been around for awhile now, and it’s picked up some steam, but somehow it is still shrouded in mystery and seems stuck in the same corners as Live Action Role Players.  To […]

Man of Steel – A Trio of Reviews

Three WPR staffers went to the advance screening of Man of Steel. It only makes sense they review it together, so here are their thoughts in one big read up. Hands were touched in popcorn buckets, beers shared afterwards, and a high speed police chase involved no causalities #yolo.

Game of Thrones: Mhysa [Review]

Game of Thrones: Mhysa [Review]

This is not the episode we were expecting, but is the episode we deserve…or need…  I’m not sure how that works.  Mhysa was very good; a high note to end the season, but this note is a different key to last week.

Game of Thrones: The Rains of Castamere [Review]

Game of Thrones: The Rains of Castamere was spectacular, exhilarating, and heartbreaking.  I would expect nothing less from the second to last episode of this season.
