Awakening, like all zombie stories, starts the same way. Someone notices that something isn’t right and they either ignore it or try to do something about it. They tell someone who’s skeptical and then, suddenly, it’s undeniable.
However, in Awakening there’s no suddenly. The build is slow and magnified by the artwork. It’s hard to tell what you’re seeing, just as it’s hard to tell what’s really happening in the city of Park Falls.
The Incrementalists—a secret society of two hundred people with an unbroken lineage reaching back forty thousand years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, and communicate with one another across nations, races, and time. They have an epic history,
Three by Jay Posey is a high-techpost-apoc adventure story and to be quite honest if you don’t run out and buy it right now we are no longer friends.
Three is a well put together story, with enough complexity to carry the narrative yet not so much it gets confusing. The characters are well-drawn and complex, the world is a fascinating, interesting one.
Pacific Rim is not a hollow, soulless film about big stompy robots. Pacific Rim doesn’t treat the audience like idiots. Yet, none of you are going to see it. This is a crying shame.
Pacific Rim is an impeccable summer action film. It is beautifully shot and well-told. There is nothing groundbreaking about it but if you wanted groundbreaking you wouldn’t be watching films about big mechs battling battling monstrous aliens.
Well this didn't look like any Oz I'd ever seen and this Dorothy was no dainty farm girl desperate to go home an iron the wrinkles from her dress. No, the Dorothy in The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West is a hardened, take charge, no nonsense kind of cowgirl who still just wants to get to Oz.
Did the title spoil it? I like to let the headline tell the story while everything else is supporting details. Speaking of details and headlines telling stories –spoiler alert—you might already know how the The Accidental Demon Slayer1 ends…
Fortunately, the ending isn’t why I’d recommend The Accidental Demon Slayer.
Angie Fox managed to write a convincing up-tight preschool teacher,
The final iteration of FUSE is a game for grown-ups with a distinct brand of grown-up humor, weapons, and problems we didn't see with the Lombax and the robot turning their enemies into chickens.
The movie cover for LOVE caught my attention more than the description. Most of the space is space and down there in the bottom corner is an astronaut just siting like he’s waiting for a bus. This is actually a pretty accurate summary of what happens in the bulk of the film.
Stranded alone aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Lee Miller fights to survive the stress of isolation and stay alive.
Defiance is a SyFy original show about a race of aliens who sought refuge on Earth only to accidentally terraform the planet into a whole new, and dangerous world for everyone. The show is set 33 years after the arrival of the aliens where they’re now integrated into the world in a semi-hostile land-share with Humans and newly evolves wildlife.
Defiance is a new city build on the bones of what use to be St.Louis.
Zombies are boring now. They’ve been done. Old news. I am no longer afraid of a zombie apocalypse, because everyone has a plan. Not only will we survive it, we’ll crush it.
Zombies have already said everything they, as a horror monster, say about our fears and our culture – our panic about communicable infection, our overwhelming terror about the slow, creeping inevitability of death. Or have they?
