Aquaman – Creative Homage

One of my all-time favorite Aquaman scenes comes from Aquaman #50, 1970.  The scene features Aquaman swimming through a jumbled telepathic mess.  However, if you look closely the jumbled mess is actually the names of several of the various creators that have worked on the character over the years.  My buddy Ravenface and I would pour […]

Fanboys the movie looks as if it could be the quintessential geek movie of all time.  Production has been delayed a whole bunch, but the trailer makes it look to be worth the wait.  It’s got a great bunch of supporting actors, including Kristen Bell, Ray Park, William Shatner, Billy Dee Williams, and Jaime King.

Sabertooth: They’re here to take the water…

Looking for some background noise while I sorted through paperwork Saturday night, I turned on a Sci-Fi channel.  Being Saturday night, they were of course running their monster/creature movie of the week.  This time it was Sabertooth.  A TV movie made back in 2002.  It was pretty predictable for Sci-Fi: wild creature on the loose, young […]

In fact, you may remember this specific billboard… […]
