Movie Review: Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

I know there are a lot of fans of the original Teen Titans cartoon that believe Teen Titans Go! is too childish of content. Well, it is. It’s childish, ridiculous stuff. I love it. My kids and I have been eating this show up for years. It is easily our favourite children’s program and it…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #6

The Background- DC is lucky enough to squeeze out one more issue of The Terrifics before Marvel brings home their own super-powered foursome. It was a blatant move when DC decided to make their own version of the Fantastic Four, and they weren’t trying to hide it. Even the competition knew that the world was…

Top Ten Superhero Families

Well, the time has finally come for me to go see Incredibles 2. I don’t know what has taken me so long as the first one is probably my favourite Pixar movie. As I get myself pumped up to see this super-powered family it got me thinking about some other great super families. So, for…

Comic Review: Terrifics #5

The Background- I have been eating the Terrifics series up. DC’s very own resident version of the Fantastic Four offers all the fun and adventure of its inspiring series, plus Plastic Man – who is one of the most humorous characters in all of comic books. There is a lot of good things on the…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #4

The Background- DC’s attempt at swooping in and gaining the dedicated fan base of Fantastic Four seems to be working.  The Terrifics got off to a slower start than I am sure the publisher had hoped for, but it is gaining some ground.  After a three-part intro to settle us in- reviews can be found…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #3

The Background- I have just recently released my review for the second issue of The Terrifics (also, here is the first one for reference) and at the time I mentioned that there was a three-part run to establish the team. Well, with number three down I can safely say I feel established. Though nothing and…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #2

The Background- I have been completely onboard with DC blatantly ripping off the Fantastic Four and creating their own like team.  The Terrifics was a great idea from the get-go and adding the writing talents of Jeff Lemire put me over the edge.  I love that guy.  Unfortunately, The Terrifics do not have the decades…
