Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming to Digital HD and Blu-ray, and to celebrate we're debuting an exclusive clip from the film.
Welcome to episode #4 of The Roundup with Elena & Meg! This week features our first co-host, Diana McCallum. Join us as we discuss the latest in film, TV, comics, and video games!
Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is big on set pieces and spectacle, but what happened to the fun?
Sidekicks are dead, according to Dork Shelf's newest comic writer Diana McCallum, and the comic book industry seems intent to keep it that way.
For this week's Unsung Anniversaries, we go with a pretty deep cut to celebrate the 25th anniversary of American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt, and in the process talk a little bit about the history of 1980s movie making powerhouse Cannon Films, what happens when a franchise has to recast its lead, and why the film has two standout performances from cult acting icons that almost make it worth watching.
On this episode we review Pompeii starring Kit Harington, Emily Browning, and Kiefer Sutherland. We also speak with comic artist Steve Lieber about his current run on Superior Foes of Spider-Man among other topics.
We chat with Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky about Sex Criminals, the first sex comedy comic, out on September 4th.
Andrew Ivimey realizes that the only thing that stopped him from becoming a caped comic book crimefighter was having a living family.
Fresh off his directorial debut, Marc Webb takes a crack at one of Marvel’s most popular characters. No simple feat. Webb has the burden of taking over from director Sam Raimi, whose first two Spider-Man films won critical praise and set impressive records in terms of numbers and total gross. However, this trailer looks spectacular and should wash the taste of Spider-Man 3 out of the mouths of any disappointed fans.
This is the best Amazing Spider-Man issue I have read in the last four years. In my youth, I was a Spider-Man fan, but upon returning to the comic years later, I soon encountered the “One More Day” arc — the story that featured the ending of Peter Parker’s marriage to Mary Jane Watson. I hated it. Since then, there have been few good Spidey plot lines, due mostly to revolving creative teams, stinker new villains, and marketing/publicity-driven storylines. Amazing Spider-Man #654.1 changes all that.
Although we've had an idea of what the Spider-Man film costume was going to look like for awhile now, we finally get an official picture of the ol' red-and-blue tights. Along with it comes the announcement of the film's title: it will be officially referred to as The Amazing Spider-Man in all future news posts.
Big news for you cartoon buffs out there: Marvel.com now offers many of their animated series to stream for free. This means that you can watch some classic shows to your heart's content, provided you have a big enough bandwidth budget.
In this (mostly) television-related episode Jeff and Will are joined by the Shelf's resident TV dorks Kathleen Corrigan and Ian MacIntyre, as well as TV critic Kat Angus of Dose.ca's excellent TV Casualty Podcast. The group discusses their favourite returning shows, shows they are looking forward to in 2011, the state of television in Canada, and even find time to challenge one another to ridiculously obscure TV trivia.
Big comic book movie news today, as we get our first look at Andrew Garfield (Never Let Me Go, The Social Network) in full Spider-Man getup.
Spider-Man has been lucky. Even on Peter Parker’s worst day his games are typically playable, and on his best day his games grow to become the finest titles for that particular console. So where does Spider-Man: Shattered Dimension fit in? Does this no-strings-attached swing at the spectacular webslinger pay off, or does Shattered Dimensions snap under the pressure?
