Movie Review: “The Heretics” is a Celebration of Different Shades of Dread

by Jeff Fountainon March 24, 2017
At first glance, you might want to dismiss the whole idea behind ‘The Heretics’ as simply something you’ve seen too many times before. You know, a cult kidnaps a woman to sacrifice her to their god, bad things ensue. However, this movie is much more than that. It is creepy, disgusting with some great scares […]

Arrow Review: Self-Discovery and Action Rule the Day in “Kapiushon”

by Jeff Fountainon March 23, 2017
In a season that has had more ups than downs, “Kapiushon” comes along and show us just how good Arrow can be if it really wants to. Great performances by Stephen Amell and Josh Segarra gave us some of the best acting we’ve seen in quite a while and the flashbacks were actually good, full […]


Movie Review: A Strange But Entertaining Journey in “An American Dream”

by Jeff Fountainon March 22, 2017
When I read the description for An American Dream, I was intrigued. I didn’t fully understand what the movie was going to be about but I guess that’s what caught my interest the most. In a world of cookie-cutter movies, this film definitely stood out as original and while it had a few moments that […]

The Flash Review: Great Singing but Dumb Rules the Day in “Duets”

by Jeff Fountainon March 22, 2017
I have to admit, everyone involved in this singing episode seemed to be having a great time. Indeed, it was wonderful to see so many of these actors actually able to sing (Except Gustin, who struggled but smiled his way through it) However, all fun aside, in the end the episode was pretty weak, with […]


Movie Review: Passion and Heartache on Display in “Broken”

by Jeff Fountainon March 20, 2017
I used to play pick-up hockey with some friends once a week and before we went on a well-known professional figure skater would be practicing before us. I would come early so I could watch him as he went over every second of his program over and over again, falling, crashing, repeating, until he got […]

Into the Badlands Review: Season Two Kicks off in Style With “Tiger Pushes Mountain”

by Jeff Fountainon March 20, 2017
At the end of season one, the Badlands were in a state of upheaval and change. Sunny and M.K. had both been captured and taken away, Quinn had been, what looked like anyway, fatally stabbed by Sunny and the Widow, with the help of Quinn’s son Ryder, made her move to take over once and […]

The Walking Dead Review: Agonizing Crawl to the Finish Line in “The Other Side”

by Jeff Fountainon March 19, 2017
After the first eight episodes of the season, which for the most part was a mess, I was really hoping that the writers had something special in store for us when the show came back from its winter break. I didn’t need one of ‘those’ episodes either, where they try and shock us with a […]

Interview with comic writer Tini Howard

by Jeff Fountainon March 16, 2017
Whether it’s writing for comics or writing about them, Tini Howard has had a passion for the written word for a long time. Recently, we had the chance to talk with Tini about her career as a writer, the comic book industry and the good, bad and the ugly that comes along with writing for […]


Arrow Review: Out of the Shadows and Into the Light in “Checkmate”

by Jeff Fountainon March 16, 2017
After a long season of ups and downs, Arrow finally gives us a different look for the show that really pays off. However, there were still numerous moments where they really tried to shoot themselves in the foot in spite of some interesting twists and turns but they managed to bring it all together for […]

The Flash Review: Familiar Faces and Strange Decisions in “Into the Speed Force”

by Jeff Fountainon March 15, 2017
After Wally got himself pulled into the Speed Force last week, I knew it wasn’t going to take long for Barry to go looking for him. However, his save-Wally-at-any-cost attitude is disappointing at this stage of the game, or the series if you will, when he should know full well it won’t be that easy. […]
