My exposure to '80s horror was hit-and-miss thanks to loving parents who kept me as sheltered as they could from the "evils" of the gory genre. So I did what every naughty kid would do: I went to my Dad's every summer and caught up on everything I'd missed during the past year. Many movies I caught through late-night marathons of HBO and Cinemax. Some slipped through the cracks, however. One of those was "The Return of the Living Dead".

With the Detective Comics title being published twice monthly now, it grows increasingly more difficult to keep up with reviewing each one. The seemingly breakneck speed of each issue is paralleled by what Writer James Tynion IV and Artist Eddy Barrows are thrusting on us every other week. Thankfully, both Detective Comics #935 and #936 are spellbinding enough to keep readers doubly interested in what’s going on within the pages of the books.

When J.J. Abrams rebooted "Star Trek" in 2009, many fans were unhappy with the direction he took the franchise. They screamed that Abrams had taken the soul of Gene Roddenberry's forward-thinking and groundbreaking creation and turned it into a "Star Wars" clone. They claimed it didn't have a heart and concentrated solely on the tropes of modern action movies.

When "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" hit theaters, I was one of many critics who demolished it and drug it through the mud. I was left in a state of shock from scenes of my favorite hero, Batman, using different types of guns and firearms to kill bad guys. Anyone who even casually keeps up with the Dark Knight knows he has a serious issue with the use of guns and doesn't take lives. Superman seemed like a selfish, whiny teenager that couldn't come to terms with who he was or wanted to be. It was a visual and narrative mess with so many problems it was overwhelming.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment serves up the "Midnight Special" for independent sci-fi fans. Director Jeff Nichols helms from a script by himself, which could be a hint as to the problem with the movie. Michael Shannon and Joel Edgerton head up the cast filled out with Kirsten Dunst, Sam Shepard, Adam Driver, and the wonderfully talented Jaeden Lieberher.

Yeah, so I'm late to the party once again. Regardless, "Independence Day: Resurgence" is way too big of an event film to just let pass by without me giving my two cents worth. Thirty years after the first attack, Director Roland Emmerich brings us the next wave of the alien invasion. Joining him in the battle are returning cast members Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Judd Hirsch, and Vivica A. Fox. The old school are joined by new recruits Liam Hemsworth, Jessie T. Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, and William Fichtner.

DC Comics continues the 30th Anniversary celebration of the release of "The Dark Knight Returns" with issue #5 of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. As we move past the halfway mark of the limited series, Writers Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello are drawing us toward a climactic battle between Kryptonians and the legendary superheroes the world has come to rely on in times of peril. Andy Kubert continues to illustrate the tale with great admiration and the excellent skill he's known for.
