It’s not every day that I get to interview a talent artist who should be working for one of the big comic book publishers, let alone be friends with one for over a decade. Tim Doyle is an underrated force in the world of comic book and pop culture art and has been running Nakatomi for almost seven years. He’s come a long way since working at Funny Papers, a now defunct comic book store that was located in Dobie Mall on the edge of campus at the University of Texas. I recently caught up with him after a couple of years at the Austin Comic Con in Austin, TX and talked shop and what’s on his current pull list. Read more...

One of the things that has always made wrestling events (including of course the televised kind) fun is that there are no rules on how fighters are to fight, and the same can be said about video games where players play fictional characters battling it out with each other. And, do you remember the clay animation sitcom Celebrity Deathmatch, where fictional versions of real-world celebrities take part in deadly wrestling matches in a battle arena? I am sure some of you do remember watching it on MTV2, and I know I saw some episodes. Read more...

cartwheelThe weekend is finally upon us it’s time to cheer, jump up and down and do cartwheels. Well, for some of us. If you’re 65 year old Dianne Barker you’re not allowed to do cartwheels.  Yes, the fun police sent Ms. “DD” Barker a letter from an attorney who respresents a local government agency that states she must immediately cease performing cartwheels at the Maricopa Associaton of Governments meetings. Barker says that she performs cartwheels at the meetings because she’s passionate about them and she thinks they help emphasize her points. The agency feels the cartwheels are disruptive and could potentially cause injury. When it was said that her cartwheeling was unprofessional she came back with this, “Just because I have confidence in myself in executing, they said it was unprofessional. Excuse me, it was professionally and skillfully executed.”  Uh, perhaps Ms. Barker’s grey cells need more of a workout than her cartwheels, but she does seem to have a lot of spunk and that goes a long way. So let’s show off our spunk and cartwheel right into what’s hot and what’s not this week.   Read more...

“Make him more tactical. Let’s go with black.” The original Robocop is possibly one of my favorite movies of the science fiction genre, if not of all time. When Paul Verhoeven’s classic first burst - guns-blazing - into theaters around the world, many guffawed at the concept. mega 4 Now, it is seen with a different set of eyes. Robocop was a clear statement on consumerism and our growing over-reliance on technology. Alex Murphy’s tragic android police officer was the perfect expression of humanity versus machinery. It was ahead of its time and, when revisited, it seems more relevant than ever before. Read more...

SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT SPIDER-MAN IN TIMES SQUARE FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE CELEBRATIONIt's that time of year again, when it's cold, cold, and cold! We have the Polar Vortex coming into North America this past week and early this week. I have no idea what a Polar Vortex is, but it sounds cool when they say it on TV and it is COLD! My good buddy and fellow columnists Jess Kirby told me it is so cold where she is that her dogs wouldn't even go outside to pee! I'm still wearing my shorts for today though, bit I see pants in the near future and I'm not real happy about that. So what do you do when it's this cold? You think about summer of course! What's the best part of summer, besides it being summer and all that? Summer blockbuster SuperHero movies! Last year was a huge year for the folks who make movies in spandex. It wasn't 2012, but it still made the over the billion dollar mark for just Super Hero movies. So what are we thinking for this year? It's going to be a GOOD YEAR! With no less than nine Super Hero movies on the slate. We have 6 sequels this year, 2 reboots and only one original. Most are proven money makers, the original is almost guaranteed to be a money maker and one of the two reboots is going to flop. None the less this year looks to be a BIG year! Play Ball!   Read more...

robocop_xlg-poster-250x350"Part man. Part machine. All cop." That was the tagline for 1987's science fiction action classic RoboCop. It was uncompromising, unruly and one of the most memorable 80's movies, particularly because of its use of graphic violence and twisted, dark humor (it was also one of the first R rated movies for a young Bleeder King). Next year we will be treated to an all-new reboot of Robocop starring an awesome cast featuring Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earl Haley, Jay Baruchel, Michael Kenneth Williams and Michael Kinnaman as the "tin man" himself! Read more...

mega 4Knight, Knight Detroit One of the icons from the 1980’s makes his return as Boom Studios proudly put police officer Alex Murphy back on their beat. The movie of the same name is still worth a watch – something I did and painstakingly took apart last week – as it’s still relevant now. The conglomerations have never gone away as they strip each piece of individuality from our towns and cities, taking everything unique and putting a label on it and stamping a trademark across its face. The satire is what defines Robocop. Verhoeven’s classic is filled with rich anarchic beats that have more of a punch than the gigantic explosions or vibrant red rivers of blood. It’s a movie about the struggle to survive when your freedom is taken away but faceless businessmen who want nothing more than to line their pockets. Robocop is even more relevant now than he was almost thirty years ago. And that’s why I still love him!   Read more...

design_robocop2013 Robocop is one of THE most adored GEEK movies of all time. It brought fans out in droves and for good reason, it was a brand new type of super hero at a time when none were being shown on the big screen. The verdict is mixed for this one though. Can it be as good as the original, will it destroy what has come before, and are GEEKS who now have a super hero movie a month today willing to see yet another reboot? With names like Joel Kinnaman Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton they definitely brought the star power! Here's the clip you tell us what you think! Read more...
