Game of Thrones: Season Three

Game of Thrones: Season Three

| February 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

While every single season of Game of Thrones has been a tumultuous ride, nothing could really prepare anyone for Season 3. Interesting character development for various characters that we hated, we began to love or understand what makes them tick. The political aspects and intricacies grew deeper and the bloodshed more brutal in HBO’s fantasy […]

Game of Thrones: Season Two

Easily one of the greatest cable television shows of all time, Game of Thrones is a prime example of a fantasy series done right. Sprung from the mind of George R.R. Martin and his novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones is a true tour de force, with its incredible cast, […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I recently had the pleasure of sitting through the extended cuts of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy back to back at the movie theater, and was pleasantly reminded of how much I really enjoy those films.  They are an ambitious and fantastic accomplishment.  I didn’t know what to expect going into The Hobbit: […]

Brave: Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Brave is a story filled with laughter, love, and learning. Princess Merida wants to find her own path in the world, not realizing how much chaos can be created by acting without thinking first. Although it is set in the past, Merida acts much like you would expect a normal teenager to act. With her […]

Painted Skin: The Resurrection

While there have been many Hong Kong fantasy films, like Ching Siu-Tung’s A Chinese Ghost Story and Ronny Yu’s The Bride with White Hair, I can easily say that Wuershan’s Painted Skin: The Resurrection is one of the best to come out of the country’s cinema and sets the bar extremely high for future fantasy […]

Lost Girl: Season One

If Joss Whedon is a geek god, then consider Michelle Lovretta a disciple of his work, with her creation of Lost Girl. At first, it may look like Lost Girl is attempting to emulate Buffy’s formula, but don’t let it fool you for one minute. The series stars Anna Silk as Bo, a succubus that […]

Considered one of the more successful films of this past year (despite having a somewhat middling box office), Snow White and the Huntsman is now on a Blu-ray combo pack that includes an extended version of the film not shown in theaters as well as a Digital Copy (compatible with all those mobile screens you […]

A man trying to find peace and redemption in a violent and tumultuous time, such is the story of Solomon Kane. With the Devil on his trail, Kane tries to redeem himself as a warrior, a son, and a Puritan. With three redemptive narratives packed into a movie just short of two hours, Solomon Kane […]

Behind the Scenes: Beasts of the Southern Wild

Behind the Scenes: Beasts of the Southern Wild

| August 17, 2012 | 0 Comments

Directed by Benh Zeitlin, Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) is a film that lies somewhere between drama, fantasy and an epic poem. Set in the mythical Bathtub of southern Lousiana, this perpetually flooded bayou would seem realistically uninhabitable, yet in this story, a dedicated, determined (and destitute) few still call it home. A real […]

Dark Nemesis

Dark Nemesis

| July 10, 2012 | 2 Comments

If you love spending your Saturday nights watching Syfy movies, then Dark Nemesis may be the film for you.  Following in the genre of action/sci-fi fantasy, the film’s visuals are at times reminiscent of 300 (though no one is quite as buff or as naked as Gerard Butler’s Spartans) and at other times the old […]
