Game of Thrones: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

Reaction to “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” (Game of Thrones: Season Five, Episode Six) by Corwyn Johnson Spoilers Ahead I debated writing this reactionary article as a letter directly to David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman (who wrote the episode), and Jeremy Podeswa (who directed the episode). Because I don’t get it. This episode was absolutely atrocious, with an appalling ending scene that is nowhere to be found in the books. Partially, I feel that Game of Thrones suffers from what I like to call The Walking Dead syndrome. Exciting beginnings to seasons that lead into relatively boring middles and rely on shock value and over-the-top finales to draw you back in. I had hope that Season 5 would prove wildly different from the previous season, and the first four episodes certainly had me maintaining that. Instead, the past two episodes have dashed those hopes entirely, and really have me questioning just what the ...

Welcome to Belle Reve: The “Suicide Squad” Revealed!

Avengers: Age of Ultron may have taken most headlines this weekend, but David Ayer wasn’t going to let Marvel hog all the glory. Last night, the writer/director shared the first cast photo of 2016’s Suicide Squad – and it looks pretty damn fantastic. Task Force X assembled and ready. #SuicideSquad pic.twitter.com/fEV7E1aPsm — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) May 3, 2015 While Jared Leto’s Joker is conspicuously absent, the rest of Task Force X is ready for duty: Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg. Adam Beach (far left) and Jay Hernandez (far right) were previously unannounced, but it appears they’re portraying Slipknot and El Diablo, respectively. Suicide Squad is scheduled for major release on August 5, 2016.

Bruce Timm’s “Justice League: Gods and Monsters” Lands on July 28

“This is a Justice League you have not seen before.” Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, and DC Entertainment are bringing the next Justice League movie to home video, but it’s not the same League you’re used to. From the renowned producer and visionary Bruce Timm, Justice League: Gods and Monsters presents an original story where the Justice League protects the planet – but as gods instead of heroes. With hints of the Justice Lords from the JLU animated series, Justice League: Gods and Monsters tells the story of the great superhero trinity – Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman – using brute force to strike fear and intimidation in the name of justice. The talented voice cast includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (24) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones) as Wonder Woman, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds and The Thrilling Adventure ...

Halo Fans Start to Hunt the Truth

Halo Fans Start to Hunt the Truth

You finished the fight. Now hunt the truth. We caught up with our dear old friend, the Master Chief, in 2012’s Halo 4, which kicked off the Spartan’s next, grand adventure to save humanity. In 2014, Halo fans received The Master Chief Collection, an HD compilation of Halos 1-4, as they waited for the release of the next installment. While the games in the set were familiar, the gap started to get bridged by Halo: Nightfall, a live action mini-series taking place after, but separate from the events of Halo 4. Introduced in Nightfall was Jameson Locke (Mike Colter), an ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence) agent on a mission to uncover a Covenant plot. Locke, in turn, will be featured in Halo 5: Guardians, the next game in the Halo series, due this year. Like the Aribiter in Halo 2, Locke will be a secondary playable character in Guardians. ...

The Teaser Trailer for “Spectre” Arrives

The Teaser Trailer for “Spectre” Arrives

Skyfall many be a tough act to follow, but Sam Mendes, EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and Sony Pictures Entertainment are going to try anyway. Even though filming presently continues for Spectre, the 24th James Bond installment,  a teaser trailer is already here to enjoy! Directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty), Spectre stars Daniel Craig in his fourth outing as 007, Ben Wishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, David Bautista, Léa Seydoux, Stephanie Sigman, Andrew Scott, and Rory Kinnear. In the film, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of ...

First Look at Melissa Benoist as Supergirl

First Look at Melissa Benoist as Supergirl

Look! Up in the sky! Or…maybe just at the internet. There’s been plenty of talk about DC Comics’ next foray into television as Supergirl begins production. Cameras rolled on CBS’s superhero series this week following casting announcements that included former Supergirl and Superman Helen Slater and Dean Cain in undisclosed roles, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, and Faran Tahir as The Commander. However, one of the biggest questions on the minds of fans was what costume will actress Melissa Benoist don when she graces the small screen later this year. As many know, Supergirl has had more costume variations than there are human Green Lanterns, so there were plenty to choose from, including Bruce Timm’s 90s cheerleader, Michael Turner’s bare midriff, and the New 52’s collared cape. But, when else fails, a classic never dies. Check out ...

“Rock Band 4″ Retakes the Living Room Later This Year

“Rock Band 4″ Retakes the Living Room Later This Year

After months of speculation, Harmonix has finally pulled back the curtain on its latest game. Dust off your plastic guitars: there’s another Rock Band on the way later this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Rock Band, in my humble opinion, the best party game around, so I suspect this should be welcome news to a number of fans out there. Rock Band 4 seemed like an inevitability – given the email gauging interest in a future Rock Band title and the recent restart of their DLC program – but now it’s official. If you already have a collection of plastic instruments at your disposal, you just might have to upgrade (again.) Harmonix says they’re “working … on solutions for letting you use legacy hardware.” Considering how noncommittal that sounds, you may have to brace yourself to purchase a brand new set of everything. Bad news ...
