Elessar’s Best Movies of 2016

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 20:57:32 +0000

2016…2016 can go f**k itself. Between the horrors in the political field, a series of subpar movies and the unending deaths of beloved celebrities and roll models (I found out Carrie Fisher died as I sat down to write this), 2016 is probably going to be long remembered as a just plain …

Elessar’s Worst Movies of 2016

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 14:00:33 +0000

2016 was a bad year just…just overall. Bad for movies, bad for politics, really bad for celebrity deaths…good for music though. But it’s almost over, and with it comes our best and our worst lists of the year. And I’ve been pining to do this list for a few months …

Review: Arrival

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 14:27:36 +0000

One trend I’ve been absurdly grateful for in the last few years is the return to Smart Sci-Fi, IE sci-fi movies where the focus is more on being a good story and having engaging characters, than on ridiculous high octane action (although, having those doesn’t hurt). The last few years …

Silverwolf’s Den: Shaft: A Complicated Man

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 11:00:15 +0000

I suppose I’m obliged to start the article like this. I’ve been on a crime comics kick lately, which started several months ago after I tore through the first six volumes of Criminal from Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips. Ever since, I’ve been trying to hunt down other series that fill my …

Silverwolf’s Den: Uncanny X-Men Superior Vol. 1: Survival of the Fittest

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 15:36:07 +0000

I love the X-Men. It’s hard for me to remember a time in my life when I wasn’t unaware of the team, having grown up on the oft-referenced 90s television series. Still, when I’ve delved into the comics starring the merry mutants I’ve been impressed as many times as I’ve …

Review: Yoga Hosers

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 00:30:53 +0000

What the Hell happened to Kevin Smith? I’m sorry. I’ve tried to find a better, more diplomatic way to sum up my initial reaction to this movie several times now. I’ve gone over numerous drafts of this for review, and really, that is the question I keep coming back to …

Review: Denial

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 14:00:38 +0000

I’ve always found conspiracy theories fascinating. Not in the “I believe them” sense. More in the “What is wrong with this person that causes them to believe this absurd thing” sense. And maybe, occasionally, sometimes, in the “Let’s laugh at this person” sense, although I do try and feel guilty …

Review: The Handmaiden

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 00:48:03 +0000

I think it’s fair to say that Park Chan-wook is the most famous Korean director, at least in America (although Shin Sang-ok might give him a run for his money, albeit for reasons mostly unrelated to his actual movies). When people in America think of Korean movies, they almost inevitably …

Review: Doctor Strange

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 17:00:26 +0000

Marvel is famous for breaking into new genres with flare and savviness, making each fit its own image as well as giving audience what they expect. Esoteric films are not a major genre per se, but as wizardry and magic have become ever more popular, now was as good a …

Silverwolf’s Den: Deadman Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #1

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 02:47:46 +0000

Happy Halloween y’all! Today we’re checking out Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #1 (hereafter Deadman). I haven’t read many romance comics, but I love ghost stories and Deadman is one of the best characters in the DC Universe. Deadman follows a young woman named Berenice who has recently become engaged to be married. …
