Sharknado Goes to … Riverdale??

Horror Movies, Horror News, Horror Reviews | AnythingHorror.com

Crossovers can be a lot of fun. It’s always fun to see your favorite novel turned into a movie, and it’s fun to read the novelizations of your favorite films. I’ve also enjoyed many of Clive Barker’s films and novels that were turned into comic books and graphic novels. If crossovers are up your alley, then I have The Mother of all crossovers for you. The popular, scratch-your-head-at-its-success franchise SHARKNADO is headed to Riverdale to give us an ARCHIE VS. SHARKNADO comic book one-shot.

Archie is used to dealing with some dark material. Currently, Archie is taking on everyone’s favorite space-hunter species in the bloody ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR comic, and in the past Archie and the gang teamed up with the rock group Kiss and the kids from GLEE. ARCHIE VS. SHARKNADO is written by Anthony C. Ferrante, who directed all three SHARKNADO films, with art done by ARCHIE comics’ own Dan Parent. The Syfy channel and ARCHIE comics have announced that…

Daredevil to Receive a Second Season in 2016

Daredevil gets its well earned second season! Marvel Universe continuity on film/tv continues to thrive!

Geekritique

Marvel have announced yesterday that the popular Netflix series has been renewed for a second season, due next year. Which is awesome. In my review of the first season, I boldly claim that the “13 episodes of Daredevil are the greatest thing to happen to the superhero genre since 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises.” And this is no exaggeration on my part. I honestly feel that is the case. I might go so far as to say it’s Marvel’s strongest property yet. So to hear that it’s been renewed for another season (far sooner than I expected it would be) is a delight.

Unfortunately the current showrunner, Steven S. DeKnight, will be stepping down from his position to move onto other projects. Taking his stead, Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will take over as showrunners (both of which have worked as writers on the first season of Daredevil).

The Great Reboot, 2010-2025

The final chapters of the Great American Novel (see FF323) refer to a time bubble between 2005 and 2020:

great reboot

The next year this bubble moved back to 2010-2025, where it stuck. This was probably the last slippage of Marvel Time before it broke that year. this is from FF340 in 1990:

Chaos War        foretold

The 1990 story gives the full details: novody could see into those years because the entire universe being rebooted. This is the Great Reboot, a reflection of Marvel Comics rebooting in the real world.

It is the biggest story in all Marvel history. The covers proclaim it as such: they declare it to be, progressively, “THE BIG ONE”, “THE BIGGER ONE” AND “THE BIGGEST ONE”. This is Walt Simonson at his cosmic best, a story of the Avengers and Fantastic Four discovering that the future ends in the year 2010 (that is, “20 years” after publication). Until the year 2025 (that is, 15 years) all is a mystery: time and space then reboot, and nothing from the previous universe can travel into the new one. It is, in short, a complete reboot of Marvel. What makes this especially interesting is that when 2010 came, the same story was repeated in different ways in different books, and the event really happened: what was left of the Marvel Universe began a fifteen year reboot.

Pop Will Eat Itself – Lived In Splendour, Died In Chaos

Built to stay the place
Not lazy! Bleary eyed
A wide berth crazy
Taken easy
Lived the steazy lifestyle
On the jaws of a crocodile
Wired and fired up
To erode the ’90s
Total overload excites me
Standing naked
Come to make it fall apart
For all the wild at heart
Party people
With hearty appetites
Start at Z cos we get up at night
Walk a tightwire
Breathing fire and thunder
Then we’re dead and down under

CHORUS
Expressway to a higher heaven
A long ride up
A quick slide down
Expressway to a higher heaven
A slow slow fuck and
A slow slow suck

Psychedelic love flow freely
Hold in high esteem hold dearly
When you’re near me
We’ll positively gravitate
Just wait you’ll see
Born to live and love
Not to push and shove
Here to give hope and rise above
All the bullshit and all the crap
‘Cos we got it like that

CHORUS
Slow! Slow! Slow! Slow! Slow!
I got no questions
I got all answers
I give no reasons I got no time
I live in splendour
I’ll die in chaos
I’d love to stay but I got no time

The real deal
Is a steal of quality
Sex and death and
Know no apologies
Free of ties and
Of all lies and disguise
I use a wise guy’s eyes
When we’ve sown the seeds
Of passion we’ll explode
In a most artistic fashion
First to explore
A kiss before dying
Now’s the time for trying
The golden age of junk
Toys R Us
Drunken joys
In Bacchus we trust
God of wine and
Divine giver of ecstacy
Read: Sugar and strychnine
Surging forward
Urging persistence
To the pineapple
Of our existence
We satisfy and gratify
Our senses
Fraid we’re made in the ’60s
Born to live and love
Not to push and shove
Here to give hope and
Rise above
All the bullshit and all the crap
‘Cos we got it like that

CHORUS
I got no questions
I got all answers
I give no reasons I got no time
I live in splendour
I’ll die in chaos
I’d love to stay but I got no time

REVIEW: Is It Wrong To Try And Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? / DaMatchi

damachi“Is It Wrong To Try And Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon” is a light novel series in Japan that has been turned into an Anime.

Bell Crane is an adventurer in a Dungeons and Dragons / Tunnels and Trolls type world. In this world, level progression is very much like in a tabletop roleplaying game except the mechanism for advancement is the intervention of a deity – a goddess in the form of a cute girl for example. A character sheet is printed off the tattoos on the adventurer’s body.

All in all these diagetic elements of the roleplaying game are really well incorporated and interesting.

The actual plot kicks off with a hyperactive adventurer who is the only worshipper or member of the Familia of a goddess. He obsesses over a rival adventurer girl who saves his life from a Minotaur. This obsession with her and trying to be powerful enough for her to notice him drives the story when you begin watching.

I picked this up as part of my Crunchy Roll subscription and I have to say- loved it.

Fresh, entertaining, never a dull moment, and nothing too densely Japanese or culturally peculiar. 🙂

WTF, DC? Starfire

WTF, DC?

With the introduction of The New 52 came some well-grounded criticism of Starfire and Catwoman. I’m not going to argue that Starfire functions as anything other than an exotic blow-up doll in the first two issues of Red Hood and the Outlaws (though it’s less overt in the second issue); I am going to argue that she’s gone from sweet to thoroughly unlikable in recent years.

Let’s be honest, though: Starfire was never without giant breasts and a skimpy costume. Here’s a glimpse of her in almost three decades ago in the Titans’ most famous storyline, 1984’s The Judas Contract:

Nothing subtle about that, but the objectification was offset by Starfire’s obliviousness to her own sexuality. Her innocence and naiveté (she was new to Earth) prevented the way she was drawn from feeling tasteless or exploitative.

Consider the follow-up to that page:

Or the end result of a…
