You can say a lot of things about Netflix, but they do Stephen King adaptations right. So far they’ve done two, 1922 and Gerald’s Game, and both are really, really good perhaps for the reason that they concentrate on human stories with supernatural overtones, as opposed to supernatural stories that revolve around people.

2004’s Blade: Trinity was the nadir of the Blade franchise, and while I can’t wait for the relaunch of the character with Mahershala Ali I have to wonder what could have come of the franchise if David Goyer hadn’t effectively killed it.

Unfortunately for Justine and everyone else, a cult of religious zealots have […]
Yesterday I read an interesting article from Albert Ching, Managing Editor at Comic Book Resources, where he explains why he hopes that the actor cast as Iron Fist in Marvel Television/Netflix’s upcoming series isn’t Asian. And I think that I get it why an Asian person might have a problem with an Asian person as the lead […]
