American Reunion Review

American Reunion Poster

For all those that were in high school when the first movie came out, WATCH THIS. This new movie grew with its original audience. It takes place 13 years AFTER ‘American Pie’ and all of the characters have grown up, just like we have. The writing team behind this did an AMAZING job with keeping with the characters and building onto the history of the ‘American Pie’ series. I swear, less than five minutes into the movie you will be laughing.

You get all of the classic styles of each character, except a more “mature” version, along with the craziness that comes with growing up. Do not get me wrong, this movie is a comedy. But it is also a coming-of-age story that all can enjoy. Being part of that generation, I totally related to the story and a lot of it hit home for me. This movie tries to educate as well as “play along” with real life predicaments and does a wonderful job of doing so. I will definitely be taking my wife to see this movie when it comes out for the general public.

March Media Madness - Ping Pong Playa Review

Ping Pong Playa poster

Are there Asian-American athletic heroes beyond Jeremy Lin and, in the past, Yao Ming? Christopher “C-Dub” Wang thinks he’s one. Ping Pong Playa is a typical sports movie jazzed up in an Asian-American flair. Also, as the title suggests, there’s some hip-hop culture infused in the movie through Jimmy Tsai‘s C-Dub & many of the loud soundtrack beats.

ICON's 'Super Crooks' (They took my money...and I liked it)

‘Super Crooks’ took me by surprise. I don’t claim to have my fingers on the “pulse” of the comic book community or anything but this came out of nowhere for me. After the success of ‘Kick-Ass’ and ‘Nemesis’, which were both good reads as well, I decided to get the book. More importantly, I decided I would get every book under the ‘ICON’ label. But we will get into that later.

I opened the book and immediately liked what I saw. The art style of Leinil Yu leaves nothing to be desired. The way he captures the mood of the scene is amazing. The intensity of the characters is down-right awesome. When he draws something, you can tell the emotion of the character and it comes off well.

Halfway through the book I realized I had never read a book from this perspective before. I did read Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s ‘The Boys’, which is the only thing I can even begin to compare it to. Except that this book is from the villains’ point of view. It’s a new sensation, when reading, that the hero is a sort of background character. So far, the hero has just been there to introduce the villains’ problem. And that is where the bi-line comes in. “There are too many Superheroes in America. Let’s go somewhere else…” Continue reading “ICON’s ‘Super Crooks’ (They took my money…and I liked it)”

Justice League #7

I have to say this is one of my top five books out of the whole DC Universe reboot. The first arc was really good so I can’t wait to see what this new arc brings us. With new enemies emerging and personalities clashing, this “new” team is stacking up to be pretty well rounded. With the addition of Cyborg as a big hitter now, it is no wonder why this book is becoming a hit with old and new fans alike. Continue reading “Justice League #7”

SyFy can capitalize on Alphas

This is a post I wrote a little while ago that zooms in on my love for the SyFy show ‘Alphas’. Enjoy!!

For those of you who know me , and those that do not, it is no surprise I am writing this. I am a HUGE fan of the SyFy show Alphas. There are so many reasons to watch this show that even this “note” wouldn’t do them justice. SyFy used to be known for it’s original movies and it’s supernatural television shows. It is now known for it’s Monday nights. I used to call it Double Feature Monday’s with Eureka and Warehouse 13 both showing on one glorious night. This is the way everyone’s week should start off. Each show has tons of heart and action and leaves you wanting more at the end ofthe night. You can’t ask for a better lineup. SyFy’s recent addition of Alphas, I now dub it SyFy Triple Threat Mondays. I don’t remember having so much fun on a Monday night. Continue reading “SyFy can capitalize on Alphas”
