  1. FX #1: "Sure," I said. "What could hurt trying out John Byrne's series from 2008?" Everything. Everything hurts. 100 Bullets vol 1: holy shit, this does NOT hold up. Rereadthrough of the series...cancelled! Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2: not great, but I don't think I remember the last time I've read a good annual. Weird. Joker/Daffy Duck: terrible. X-Files Case Files Hoot Goes There #2: fun. Venom First Host #1: eh...not terrible, but not terribly good. X-23 #3: brilliant. Great book. X-Men Blue #34: excellent. Aphrodite IX Ares: a Top Cow talent search book. Not great. Comics: 198 Trades: 16 Graphic Novels: 11 Omnibus: 3
  2. The Fear of Looking Up/Under ConTROLL/Await the Dawn/In their Eyes/Paranormal Systems/Live or Let Die/Survival Guid/Captain Jarvis and the Red Soda Kid/Fornacis/When the Fever Breaks/Lake Michigan Monster/Artik/Luz: The Flower of Evil/ Santet/Deathcember: features for the festival Features: 174 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 13 Rewatches: 6
  3. Believe it or not these are all from the last four days, and I didn't watch anything yesterday. Might try and get another in tonight. Harvest Lake/Borgman/Atomic Blonde: reviews forthcoming Nail in the Coffin: The Fall and Rise of Vampiro/Rammstein: Paris: reviews forthcoming The Pool: Cool premise. Stupid characters. Awful CGI crocodile. 1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse: Fritz Lang teaches a masterclass on editing in this one. Any other filmmaker would have made this 90 minute film into a two and a half hour snooze fest. Everything is so tight and moves at breakneck pace, but it still manages to slow down and show some amazingly quiet suspense. Manriki/Beyond Hell/Stomach/Hunter's Moon/Fragmentary: features for the festival. Features: 159 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 13 Rewatches: 6
  4. My understanding is, his run begins in the backup of next issue (85).
  5. They lost me in the horribly bloated wedding storyline. I'll jump in and check out the Tynion run next issue, though. I like his Batman. He did that Batman Eternal series as well as Detective for a while.
  6. Feast: review forthcoming. Features: 149 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 11 Rewatches: 6
  7. Final Ride/Heks: features for the festival Clockwork Orange Country: a documentary about the So Cal punk scene of the late 70s early 80s. Mostly an oral history of a specific club. Not bad. Not great. Features: 148 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 11 Rewatches: 6
  8. Christmas Chronicles: to show my girlfriend I wasn't a complete Scrooge, we checked this out. Kurt Russell is awesome. The kids are alright. It's another dead dad movie. It's basically a Hallmark film with a huge budget, but Russell sells it hard. Features: 146 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 10 Rewatches: 6
  9. Wes Craven's New Nightmare: this movie was way ahead of its time. Craven can't act for shit, but he sure can come up with a fresh idea for a sequel The Hangover Part III: youngest asked to watch this. It's wayyyy better than the second one, but that one is shit. Some solid comedy and John Goodman is great. Much more of a crime/adventure film than the others. Decent but not good. Features: 145 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 10 Rewatches: 6
  10. Masters of the Universe: Origin of Hordak: this is such a definitive work for me. It's funny because this encompasses like, basically everything I try to do in my writing. Cosmic horror mixed with a heavy dose of Kirby influence. Keene and Giffen teaming up on the script is inspired. I wish that team did more. Hammer Locke #1: I've been wanting to read this for close to twenty years based on how cool the cover was and the art style. Never found it. Then Mike helped me out. It did not live up to the hype I'd built in my head. Sad face. Extermination #2: sooooo X-Menny and I love it. House Amok #1: I couldn't describe a single thing from the plot to you if you put a gun to my head. Forgettable. Hunt for Wolverine Dead Ends #1: this one shot basically runs down how the other miniseries didn't really amount to anything. It's a housekeeping issue. Not bad, Leviathan #2: I'll pass thanks. Lex Luthor/Porky Pig #1: this was pretty fun. Marvel Two-In-one #9: still great. The Monster Hunters Survival Guide Case Files Wendigo: I'll pass. Comics: 190 Trades: 15 Graphic Novels: 11 Omnibus: 3

    Not my thing, but Poppy and Babymetal are really pissing off a lot of metal purists and I love it.
  12. I, Madman: review forthcoming Rabid (2019): review forthcoming Features: 143 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 10 Rewatches: 6
  13. It has its moments. The Johnny Depp cameo is top notch. The Tom Arnold and Roseanne Barr cameo is hilarious for the four seconds of screen time they get not because of the script or acting, but because they're so coked out you can see them grinding their teeth.Some of the kills are fun, but yikes.
  14. Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare: woof. Found the worst one in the series. This is the first one I saw in the theatre, but I haven't rewatched it since. Yikes. Features: 141 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 10 Rewatches: 6
  15. Gothic: really looking forward to discussing this on the podcast Features: 140 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 10 Rewatches: 6
