Captain America (1990) in 100 Words

Director - Albert Pyun
Cast - Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Scott Paulin, Ned Beatty, Darren McGavin, Francesca Neri and Michael Nouri

Despite not looking utterly terrible, this original cinematic take on the First Avenger lurches from one mistake to another.

Dr. Strange (1978) in 100 Words

DirectorPhilip DeGuere
Cast - Peter Hooten, Clyde Kusatsu and Anne-Marie Martin

After putting myself through this 70’s adaptation I’m not surprised it took 36 years for a second attempt to be announced.

Labyrinth (1986)

Director - Jim Henson
CastDavid Bowie and Jennifer Connelly

Yes I know, I'm a bit behind on this one. Better late then never though eh?

I would say we have to get something out of the way before I can get on with this review, but there is no getting out of it's way or around it. 

Priest (2011) in 100 Words

Director - Scott Stewart
Cast - Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q

I have no doubt an action film starring Paul Bettany looked like a good idea on paper.

TMNT #39

Originally written for Flickering Myth

If you're not all caught up yet, check out my review for TMNT #38! There might be minor spoiler for the issues if you you're not up to date!

"The ranks of Hob’s gang are growing, and two other mutants want in... Bebop & Rocksteady!! Will they imperil the Turtles’ wary alliance with Hob? And just what the heck are Don and Harold busy building? Read on to find out!"

With brotherly bonds strained and characters tested there is plenty to get your claws stuck into this month with TMNT. It's full of drama, but it has something more important than that.....a well written Bebop and Rocksteady!
