Deathstroke is Back in His Own Monthly Book

It comes as no surprise that DC Comics is re-launching a monthly series for Deathstroke. The character is more popular now than ever after being heavily featured on “Arrow,” “Son of Batman,” and different video games. Issue 1 is a great start to another chapter in the life of the mercenary-for-hire.

Celebrating 36 Years Of "KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park"

In 1978, there were two things on the minds of boys ages 5 to 16. OK, maybe three. They were KISS, "Star Wars," and girls. You pick the order they were in for you personally. I was 6, so girls really hadn't figured into the equation yet.

Return to "Krull" For a Fantastic Journey in Hi-Def

1983’s sci-fi fantasy adventure “Krull” gets its Blu-ray debut thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment. A failure at the box office when it originally came out, the cult classic blends together the best elements of “Star Wars,” “Excalibur,” and “The Lord of the Rings.” The end result is an occasionally slow-paced swashbuckling sword-and-sorcery tale guaranteed to thrill those waiting for it to get a high-definition release.

“The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill” Redeems the "Found Footage" Genre

Secondly, it seems like a gimmick filmmakers use as a way to make a cheap movie they can market to millions and profit off. Every once in a while, one comes along and makes me second-guess my attitude towards the horror sub-genre. However, it’s always at home on a much smaller screen than the one found at your local multiplex.
