Thor: Ragnarok Out on Blu-ray/DVD Today

The third Thor movie (and in some people’s opinions, the best) is out today on home video. Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder — only he’s stuck across the universe without his hammer. He works to escape the Grandmaster’s (Jeff Goldblum) gladiatorial battles with the Hulk and return to Asgard to stop Hela (Cate Blanchett) from bringing about Ragnarok, accompanied by Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). Thor: Ragnarok is directed […]

I Kill Giants Movie Has Release Date

I Kill Giants was an award-winning comic, collected in 2009, written by Joe Kelly (Action Comics, Deadpool), and illustrated by J.M. Ken Niimura. Now, it’s a movie, written by Kelly and directed by Anders Walter. The poster and trailer suggest fantasy adventure, but there’s an undercurrent (particularly to those who’ve read the book) that escapism is called that for a reason, that there’s usually something to escape from. Is Barbara really fighting giants? With comics, and now, thanks to CGI, […]

Kingsman Sequel Due in September

I hadn’t realized Kingsman: The Secret Service was as successful as it was, making over $400 million worldwide. That explains why a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is coming this September. As with the first movie, this one is directed by Matthew Vaughn and co-written by him and Jane Goldman. It stars Taron Egerton and carried over from the previous, Mark Strong and oddly, Colin Firth. I’m surprised, given events of the first film, he’s still in it, but there […]

X-Men: Apocalypse

I didn’t see X-Men: Apocalypse in theaters. This past summer, I was pretty burned out on superhero comic movies, and I wasn’t blown away by the trailer. But I like the concept of the X-Men, especially with the revamped prequel setup and cast. Overall, watching the movie made for an enjoyable weekend afternoon. I had a fun time with the film, particularly since KC and I could stop the movie and talk about comic history, or roll our eyes at […]
