Hey, There Aren’t Any Robots in This! #2

Hey, There Aren’t Any Robots in This! #2

Ok, so a main character did play a planet eating robot later, but get off my back! A classic noir piece from 1949 directed by Carol Reed, The Third Man stars Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles, Valli, and Trevor Howard, with a smaller role for Bernard Lee, the man most of us remember best as M […]

 

Ivan the Terrible Should Have Made a Dark Ale

Ivan the Terrible Should Have Made a Dark Ale

Sergei Eisenstein’s great film Ivan the Terrible demands as much from it’s viewers as it did it’s creators. That’s why I can’t and won’t mention a food that perfectly complements the film, because it doesn’t leave a lot of room for food. However, I can recommend a beverage, like a dark, Russian ale that you […]

 

I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants

One collected edition of note is I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura. In 2008, it was awarded “Best Indy Book of 2008” by IGN. Dan Kois (New York Magazine) put it in his top ten comics list for 2009. The Young Adult Library Services Association named it one of 2010’s “top […]

 

Ultimate Iron Man: Armor Wars

Ultimate Iron Man:  Armor Wars

Originally, I wasn’t going to review Ultimate Iron Man:  Armor Wars.  The hardcover collected edition of the four issue mini-series came out in the middle of April.  I wasn’t going to review it because after reading it, Armor Wars slipped from my mind fairly quickly. What’s that you say?  A book by Warren Ellis did […]

 

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode 6, “The Human Centipede”

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode 6, “The Human Centipede”

This week the guys review “Iron Man 2”, where Ben, Chad and Chris drool extensively over it.  Also reviewed was “Daybreakers” where everyone agreed that it was a cool idea, but Chris in the end hates on it.  The last movie the guys reviewed was the classic “Mad Max” (no, not the one with Tina […]

 

Comic Book Review: Kill Shakespeare #2, A 21st Century Classic

Comic Book Review: Kill Shakespeare #2, A 21st Century Classic

Up front, I have to be honest. I love modern storytelling. I was raised on the excitement of 20th Century pop-culture. My childhood was full of Lucas, Spielberg and Donner. My adulthood is garnished by Tarantino, Scorsese and Wes Anderson. Now, intellectually I understand that Shakespeare is a master storyteller. I know that if something […]

 

Rocket Singh Presents the First of Many Mangoes

Rocket Singh Presents the First of Many Mangoes

One of the primary reasons I think Bollywood films are worth watching is because they are brimming with wisdom, and Rocket Singh is no exception.

Behind Schedule: Scribblenauts Review for Nintendo DS

Behind Schedule: Scribblenauts Review for Nintendo DS

I don’t really buy games anymore, ever.  Thankfully, there are two days a year where people feel they are compelled to purchase things for me.  Recently, I had a birthday and on the day before, I wrote out a list of things I wanted since apparently everyone was shopping late for me.  Scribblenauts was on […]

 

A Brit Late – Halo 3: ODST

A Brit Late – Halo 3: ODST

I was excited when Halo 3 ODST was initially announced. A new campaign with new characters and weapons where you’re not Master Chief again? Awesome! It was later revealed that ODST wouldn’t be available as DLC, only on disc. Okay, kind of a dick move but I can work with it. Then finally Microsoft revealed that the […]

MWN Reviews – The Beatles: Rock Band

If you’d told someone 40 years ago that one day there would be machines where you could play along to virtual versions of The Beatles with plastic instruments, they probably would have asked you what you were smoking and if they could have some of it.  Hell, if you’d said a year ago that there […]

MWN Reviews – Batman: Arkham Asylum

MWN Reviews – Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman has had better luck than most when it’s come to video games. While Batman has also had his fair share of bat-crap, games like Batman on NES and Batman Returns on SNES/Mega Drive have saved him from the suffering that has faced other comic book heroes such as Superman for an extreme example. That […]

MWN Reviews: I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES IN IT!!!!1

Xbox 360 Indie Games are still in their infancy right now and while there a few diamonds in the rough, most of the games are, quite frankly, garbage. But then, like I said, there are diamonds in the rough and one of the latest examples would be I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES IN IT!!!!1, […]

MWN Reviews: NHS National Swine Flu Leaflet

Since we are clearly very intelligent individuals here, when we were made aware of the Swine Flu epidemic that was a deadly threat to whole of mankind,  we were very worried about how the world would deal with it and more importantly how scaremongering the media could be. So when this NHS Swine Flu leaflet […]
