Movie Review: Oblivion

Director/Writer: Joseph Kosinski
Stars: Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko

REVIEW: This movie has everything I want out of a sci-fi flick.​ 

Based upon his unpublished graphic novel of the same name, Kosinski brings to life an original vision that builds upon many science fiction stories of the past.

2013 Eisner Nominatons Announced

Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards 2013

This years Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards were just announced. This is a very indie list this year, with very few mainstream comics making the cut. In fact, DC got next to nothing. But, with some pride in what I’m reading, two big leaders among those nominated are my two favorite books right now: Hawkeye​ and Saga​. They are both brilliant books, still early in their runs and I highly recommend that anyone who loves comics, goes back and picks these great comics in trade right now and be forever grateful you did. I do think a major ommission to this list is Fiona Staples artwork and lettering for Saga – it is brilliant.

​Without further adieu, the list!

Leo Carrillo State Park, Malibu, California – 16 April 2013

On Tuesday afternoon I decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Malibu to take a few beach photos. I knew of some great surfing spots that I thought would provide some decent landscape for the shoot.

Movies Review: From Up On Poppy Hill

Movies Review: From Up On Poppy Hill
Director: Goro Miyazaki
Writer: Tetsurô Sayama, Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa

REVIEW: ​No matter what, I am always pumped to go see a new Studio Ghibli film, especially when Hayao Miyazaki is directly involved. This film is written by Hayao and Keiko Niwa, adapted from graphic novel. This is where both the films great beauty and serious flaws come in. Directed by Hayao’s son, Goro Miyazaki, this appears to be a perfect tale for the father and son team to tackle.​ READ MORE…
