The Walking Dead Mid-Season 5 Finale Review: Has Kirkman Finally Run Out of Ideas? (Warning: Spoilers)

The Walking Dead Mid-Season 5 Finale Review: Has Kirkman Finally Run Out of Ideas? (Warning: Spoilers)

Walking Dead Season 5 Cast The Walking Dead Mid Season 5 Finale Review: Has Kirkman Finally Run Out of Ideas? (Warning: Spoilers)

Back in season 2 when Sophia stumbled out of that barn as a walker, it was such a great moment in television. The characters had spent the better part of the season up to that point looking for her and we saw Carol grieving and Daryl searching. There was that awesome scene where Daryl brought back that Cherokee rose for Carol and told the story about the Trail of Tears. Of course, the odds were that Sophia had gotten either eaten or turned, being that she was an unarmed little girl lost in a forest full of walkers. We all knew …

halo a Exclusive: No Holds Barred Interview With Spawns Todd McFarlane

I remember being in 7th grade when Spawn 1st came out.  I loved the dynamic style and the gritty story.  Couple of years later, Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane, came out with his own set of action figures.  I collected those and it started my toy collection.  Growing up and even to this day, I’ve always looked up to Todd.  He revolutionized the comic and toy industry with his attention to detail.  I was fortunate enough to interview Todd McFarlane as he visits Toys R Us Times Square this Saturday, February 1st for the Superbowl festivity.

Sherlock Holmes kid lit

Derrick Belanger`s The Amazing Airship Adventure  is a charming and original book  about two apparently ordinary kids who live in 1897 London.   But young Jimmy and Emma  MacDougall are far from average: they are budding  10-year-old detectives who  sometimes work with the famed sleuth  Sherlock Holmes.  Both siblings have talents suited to this sort of work.  Much like Holmes, Emma makes it a point to notice life`s minute details.  Jimmy has mechanical aptitude and is also skilled at disguises (one of the best scenes in the story has him dress as an older man in order to get information from a …

Box Office Review: Nightcrawler

Box Office Review: Nightcrawler

nightcrawler main Box Office Review: Nightcrawler

Have you ever come to a realization while watching a film that the acting unfolding before your eyes could very well be an Oscar winning performance? I experienced that sensation about halfway through Nightcrawler.  In case you’re wondering, this film is not about Marvel’s blue-skinned, fanged, cloven-hoofed teleporter. It’s actually about a man who forges a career as a video reporter in Los Angeles.

To say that Nightcrawler is a great movie wouldn’t come close to explaining how good this film is. It’s a freaking awesome movie, and much of the film’s accomplishment must be credited to Jake Gyllenhaal, who turns …

Now, I want to talk about…

Oshimen (Number 1 Favorite):

For me, my journey into AKB48 started in 2007, I was doing a photo search and came across Minami Takahashi—at the time, I saw a pretty, little Japanese girl with black hair in what appeared to be a top ponytail. (The photo is below). Her face was so pretty and she just seemed to grab me instantly. So, I went into the page it was on and found out that the group …
