A Million Ways To Die In The West – Restricted Trailer

So if you have not heard Seth MacFarlane has a new movie coming out this summer. That being said it will be filled with all the salty language that you would expect from a MacFalane film. I am sure that it will be panned by critics as be vulgar and filthy. But hey if you like me you will laugh your ass off. If the trailer is any indication of what is coming then it should be a fun time.

“Seth MacFarlane directs, produces, co-writes and plays the role of the cowardly
sheep farmer Albert in A Million Ways to Die in the West. After Albert backs out
of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious
and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin
to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge,
the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.”

Also starring alongside MacFarlane are  Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson,
Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Neil Patrick Harris.

BADASS #1: Review

BadassBADASS #1 (4)

Publisher: Dynamite Comics

Writer: Herik Hanna

Artist: Bruno Bessadi

Colors: Gaetan Georges

So what do you get when you take a little of Deadpool, Bullseye, Hit Girl and a little of 1960’s Batman TV. You get a bouncing baby BADASS.

Herik Hanna and Geatan Georges brings to the pages of this Dynamite Comic the crazy, funny and violent world of sociopath Dead End. Dead End has a talent and that talent is killing and he loves  his job.  The reader first gets to meet Dead End as he is not really enjoying his meal at a out door cafe. Most people would enjoy seeing family’s and couples have a good time but Dead End is disgusted by it. Here comes in the ingredient of Bullseye as Dead End using a coin to ricochet off a car and hitting a waiter in the eye. The car then plows into the happy people killing a few and making Dead End very happy.

In a sequence of flash backs we get to see the young Dead End. His struggle at High School being bullied and picked on by the kids. Being laughed at and getting the shit kick out of him. The little hint of Deadpool makes it’s appearance as the young Dead End is being consoled by the school nurse and instead of taking out his angry at the bullies he attacks the school nurse verbally. The reader is shown the beginnings of the sociopath to come.Layout 1

So you maybe asking where do we get the mix of Hit Girl comes into the cooking pot. Well my fellow comic reader our sociopath pays a visit to a very large green dragon and his clan, The Green Dragon Clan. After giving a nice humorous speak(Deadpool) Dead End sets out to kill every member of the clan. Looking like Hit Girl, Dead End dances and slashes his way thru all the clan. Killing each member in a bloody and messy way. In the end killing the dragon by setting his inside on fire. Oh yummy, fried dragon.

Herik Hanna throws together all these different characters to created a interesting new happy, smart ass, lunatic, psycho to hopefully fill in the need for more senseless death and destruction. I enjoyed the flash back to Dead End’s childhood. The story moves along a good pace and with the hints of Dead Ends past it makes you want to pick up a few issues to see more of his background.

Artist Bruno Bessadi does a wonderful, pleasing work. The action sequences are excellently drawn. Look hard enough you can see some great details down in those panels. If you are get squish mess at the sight of exploding pimple well the skip a page the high school flash back.

So I have to say I enjoyed BadAss #1. The humor of our anti-hero if funny but not Deadpool funny but good. Though this a book about a lunatic the violence was not as bad as some books I have read. To me that is a good thing because you do not have to exploding body parts to make a good action comic.

So in the end I give BadAss #1 3.5 pops out of 5.

Oh yeah the 1960’s Batman TV aspect.  Amadeus Kitty!?! Come on now,  you can not tell that this character would not fit there. Maybe we will see some Batnip later?

This is book 1 of 4 so I would get it if you have the extra cash and looking for something a little different.

Remember comics are to be enjoyed. Not destroyed.

Movie Mondays: From The Future With Love

Hey Poppers and welcome back to another Movie Monday.

“From The Future With Love” take place in the year 2095 where police protection comes at a price. New York is divided between two different police forces the NYPC  and the MPF. These different police have New York split and offering their own of brand of protection.

The story follow 3 different officers and what happen them thru the days. This is a interesting film. The effects are remarkable and the costumes of police officers is great. They resemble walking street cars with RoboCop throw into the mix. You can see something like this coming true as governments do not have the money to pay their different aspects of government. The private sector taking over many of the operations that the cities can not afford.

So take 12 minutes out of your day and give this a watch.

Black Widow #1: Review

BlackwidowBlack Widow #1

Written by: Nathan Edmondson

Art by: Phil Noto

Lettered by VC’s Clayton Cowles

Black Widow is a busy woman. Natasha Romanov is a Avenger, a agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ex-KGB agent assassin. On her free time if you can call it that she takes up jobs to help atone for her past.

Written by Nathan Edmondson and art by Phil Noto these two individuals try and give the reader a idea of what Natasha Romanov does to help correct deeds she has done in her past.

Nathan gives the reader a idea of Natasha’s past but as the character says “no one will know my full story” as she pushes a fellow out a window. He had a rope attached to him. Nathan decides to take the reader forward and not spend time on her past. Part of that moving forward is Natasha trying to atone for her past by taking jobs to set aside in different trust funds. We are not informed who or what these trust funds are for and that increase the mystery of the Black Widow.  The reader knows that even though the Black widow is part of Avenger, S.H.I.E.L.D. she does not answer to anyone or play by the rules. The Black Widow is trying to redeem herself by taking on jobs, but how many will it take? If you are hoping for the Deadpool type of action and humor then your reading the wrong book.

Blackwidow1  The art work by Phil Noto stylish and looks like the art work from 1960’s pulp fiction art of the books of the time. It works great here. You are in the present but with that feel of the past. Noto’s art reminds me of water color art fluid and stunning.

Overall the book reminds of a pilot for a proposed TV show. Everything from character introduction, fast pace action and a hint of what may come in the future.

So in the end I give Black Widow #1 4 pops out of 5. Go out and get this book and give it a try.

Night Of The Living Deadpool: Review

Screenshot 2014-01-21 19.11.48  Night Of The Living Deadpool #1

Writer: Cullen Bunn

Artist: Ramon Rosanas

Letterer: VC’s Joe Sadino

Cover Artist: Jay Shaw

So if you know that it seems that zombies are popping out everywhere these days. Movies, TV, books, art, tattoos, hell I would not be surprise if you end up finding them on babies diapers soon.

Marvel is at it again with another adventure in the zombie world but this time with a single hero and not the whole Marvel universe. Everyone’s favorite merch with a mouth, Deadpool is the hero, oh god. Deadpool has been dancing around the Marvel universe from book to book like a new social disease. But a lovable social disease much like Wolverine.

After waking up from a food coma Deadpool finds himself alone in a restaurant. Everyone has gone, leaving the restaurant Deadpool finds a note saying that everyone has fled, leaving him locked inside for his protection. Deadpool enters the street and finds that everyone…everyone is gone. Looking back he did see the signs but was in his own world and did not noticed. Eventually Deadpool meets his first zombie and the fun begins.

KinkyDeadpoolLike any good Deadpool comic there is humor and we get it here. Not laugh out loud but a nice snicker here and their. The book is done in black and white and works.  The use of black and white pages of splashing blood gives it a nice effect The only color in the book is Deadpool and in flash backs. I like the effect and it is a nice touch giving it the look of the 1968’s  “Night Of The Living Dead”. Another interesting idea was giving the zombie the ability to speak but only the residual memories of their last thoughts before their death.

The same effect was used in a Doctor Who episode “Silence In The Library”. I have to think that writer Cullen Bunn maybe a fan. Cullen Bunn story is simple and a nice relaxing read and not a strain. Maybe over the next few books things may pick up some more speed. He does throw in bits of humor here and there but not the zany Deadpool that some of us have come to love.

The art work of Ramon Rosanas is major league stuff and enjoyable. Ramon art work is just another example of some of the amazing art work that is available in the comic world. I will keep a eye out for more of his work.

Overall the book is entertaining and worth the price.

So in the end I give “Night Of The Living Deadpool” a 3 3/4 pop out of 5.
