Image
It's that day again.  SUPERHERO SUNDAY!  Today, let's take a look at the only Incredible Hulk game worth playing, Ultimate Destruction.  This open world sandbox does something that other Hulk games have failed to pull off.  It actually makes you feel like the Incredible Hulk.

5 Things About He Man You Didn't Know

With a new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie currently being worked on, it's time to take a look back at the classic cartoon from the early 80's.  Oddly enough, the show only ran from 1983-1985.  Not a long run for a show that made a huge mark on pop culture and is still remembered 30 years later.

Top 13 Jason Voorhees Kills

It's FRIDAY the 13th, people!  What better way to celebrate than to honor my all time favorite slasher series and horror icon, Jason Voorhees.  In this video, I take a look at the best kills from the entire original series of films.  The reboot was not included, simply because it wasn't out at the time this video was made!

Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage (SNES 1994)

Image
It’s SUPERHERO SUNDAY!  At least that’s what I’m calling it since I’m talking about my all time favorite superhero!

The first game I wanted to revisit was the best Spider-Man game from a retro system.  Spider-man hasn’t been too lucky with video game adaptations.  Most of ‘em suck.  Hard.  Finally, he got a decent one on the SNES and Genesis systems.  And it was brought to us by LJN!  What is this bizarro world??

TOP 5 FAVORITE COMIC BOOK MOVIES

(Editor's note:  This article was written on September 3, 2013, before Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy were released.  Both of them would now appear on the list.  Stay tuned for an updated VIDEO version of the list coming soon!)
Let’s be honest, historically, comic book movies haven’t been very good.  It’s hard to translate decades of source material into something that does the character justice while also telling a new story that people unfamiliar with the canon can still enjoy.  Superman 4, Batman and Robin, Ghost Rider, Catwoman, Green Lantern, yeah…they all suck.  Some of them suck in good ways (Superman 4), but in most cases, they just flat out blow.  Luckily, post 2000, we’ve been getting loads of comic book movies that are not only good adaptations, but they’re also good films in general.

Sometimes, there's just some characters who ain't quite right.  There's ones that you can't imagine why they were created or who thought they'd be a good idea!  So, check out our video of 5 Ridiculously Stupid Comic Book Characters.  Don't say we didn't warn you!

CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH (REVIEW)

Image
For anyone who grew up in the 1980’s and 90’s, serial killer extraordinaire, Jason Voorhees, is like a member of your family.  Granted, that would be a whacked out family reunion, but nevertheless, the Friday the 13th movies were a part of the fabric of 80’s/90’s culture.  While the original Friday the 13th wasn’t the first slasher flick, it did perfect the stalk and slash formula that we have grown to know and love.  What Halloween did, Friday the 13th did bloodier. The franchise’s influence was widespread.  It basically invented the entire killer in the woods sub genre of slasher films.

Coming SOON!
