Spartacus returns Jan 25th in War of the Damn!

  Glaber is dead. Batiatus is dead. The guy that Batiatus paid to kill Spartacus’ wife is died. Ashur is dead. Lucretia is dead. Ilithyia is dead. Spartacus has had his Vengeance. One would think that there was no one left for Spartacus to kill but it looks like Varinius and Glaber were just the beginning and there are still plenty of Romans who need killing. After Spartacus’ victories over Glaber and Varinius, Spartacus’ ranks have swelled from a small army of 70 to numbering in the thousands. Of course, Rome has not turned a blind eye to Spartacus’ victories and he’s now earned the full attention of the Roman empire, namely Marcus Crassus, Julius Caesar and their army of 50,000. Sounds like Spartacus will amass even higher body count this time around. War of the Damned will conclude what is known as the “Third Servile War” or the third major uprising of slaves. Third time’s a charm right?   – Prometheus You May Also Like: Spartacus Vengeance: Wrath of the Gods – Recap Walking Dead Mid-Season 3 Finale: Made to Suffer – Recap 10 Greatest Videogame Commercials aka We Can’t Count Ronda Rousey to headline UFC 157!

Jack Reacher – Movie Review

  Right off the bat Tom Cruise has quite a bit going against him with Jack Reacher. Fans of the novel are quick to point out that the first thing we learn about Jack Reacher is that he’s described as 6’5″ and over 200lbs of solid muscle. Tom Cruise in contrast is 5’7” and arguably weighs no more than 170lbs. On top of that, people generally dislike Tom Cruise for a variety of reasons; he’s a “crazy Scientologist” and treated Oprah’s couch like Rick James would have. I preface my review this way because Tom Cruise carries a considerable amount of baggage. In my opinion, the most relevant reason why Jack Reacher may be disappointing is that it’s advertised as an action movie when in actuality it’s more of an action-thriller. While there are in fact bits of action littered throughout the movie, the movie moves at a considerably slow pace.

Spartacus Vengeance: Wrath of the Gods – Recap

  With Wrath of the Gods marking the end of  Spartacus Vengeance we, at long last, witness Spartacus’ vengeance fulfilled! But Spartacus doesn’t get to have all the fun, Naevia enacts some long awaited vengeance of her own. Lastly, we get to see just how good of friends Lucretia and Ilithyia really are. It may come as a surprise but you wouldn’t even want to be causal acquaintances with either of them. Monsters concluded with Spartacus and his rebels holding up atop Mt. Vesuvius, with no food and no water, as Glaber waited for what he believed was to be his inevitable victory over Spartacus. Glaber had planned to wait until Spartacus and his rebels, through thirst and starvation, were desperate enough to launch an attack. As you can imagine, things don’t quite go the way that Glaber had hoped… If it comes down to it, I want you to eat me.

The Comic Bubble: Marvel NOW! Right NOW! Part 2

  Previously I wrote about what I figured to be the Top 5 books under the Marvel Now! label. This time, I’ll be going through the rest of the books under the trade dress, giving you an insight into which ones are worth your time and which ones just be left on the comic shelf.    Besides the five books mentioned in Part 1, there are currently eight other books out that is part of Marvel NOW!, for the titles that began a new volume/#1.    

Ghost In The Shell MMORPG Possibly In The Making

    A bit of late news on this Christmas Eve, by the way Happy Holidays.  Nexon, who I admit I’ve never heard of, is reported to have bought the licensing rights off Kodansha to make a game based off the incredible series Ghost in The Shell: Stand Alone Complex.  So far, the game is set to release on PC, but nothing has been mentioned on it’s exclusivity.  A console release would be nice, though.  The game will also be online, so that basically narrows our guess to a possible MMO.
