    Slott aside, I thought it was a decent breather issue at the very least, coming right after the mess that was Empyre.

    But yeah, Slott was very good for this book until the wedding. Except that...

    I'm down with both of these points. Before we were ever able to record anything on film or record, remakes and covers were the only way that plays and songs could survive -- and even then folks have...

    As inaccurate as the original Transformers cartoon may have been, it still involved getting licencing from respective car brands (i.e. Porsche and Lamborghini). The reason for the new cast from the...

    According to Ed Solomon, one of the creators of the franchise, the babies at the end of Bogus Journey are indeed the same daughters in Face the Music. There's a...

    Maybe we can just say offspring rather than children. Lil Bill and Lil Ted are stated to be 24 by Ted's father, but really they should be 29 or so since present-day San Dimas in Bogus Journey is set...

    I really wanted a Kyuuranger adaptation. It's been awhile since we've had a dedicated space show (I mean, every show has aliens coming to Earth, but even SPD barely left the planet -- and they patrol...

    As a kid, I hated the children in Jurassic Park -- the only good character who was less useful was Genero, and that wasn't saying much. Most definitely shoved in there in classic Spielbergian...

    Tbh, this latest line of Transformers toys got me back into the franchise, with many of the toys purposely trying to go back to looking like the original G1 cartoon models. If Warden was in charge of...
