DC Collectibles The FLASH unboxing and review

DC television properties have had their fair share of up's and downs. From the hugely successful Batman the Animated Series (and subsequent spin off's which are too numerous to name in their entirety) to the virtually unwatchable live action Justice League pilot (which thankfully was never picked up as a series!).   Fortunately for DC, their principle competitor (arch nemisis?) Marvel studios had a runaway hit with their big screen shared movie continuity collectively known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). With Agents of Shield in development for the small screen, DC wasted no time in securing their own foothold...

NECA Cinemachines UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship Unboxing and Review

When James Cameron infused his 1986 film Aliens with its healthy dose of militarization, it was clear that the Vietnam war served as inspiration.

With its VTOL capability and helicopter like handling the UD-4L clearly served as the films "dust off Huey".  While the dropship had little screen time, it was more than enough to cement it as one of the outstanding set pieces of the film.

Paul Feigs Ghostbusters didn't ruin your childhood, now stop being such an adult!

Paul Feigs Ghostbusters didn't ruin your childhood, now stop being such an adult!

Ghostbusters: 1h 56min If you haven't seen Paul Feigs Ghostbusters reboot by now that probably means you aren't planning on doing so. I doubt there'e little I can say to sway you. It doesn't mean that i'm not going to try though! The "fan" criticism of this film has been very polarizing, placing Ghostbusters in such company as the entire Star Wars prequel trilogy and to a lesser extent the rebooted Star Trek franchise (now referred to as the Kelvin timeline). Fans in all their arm chair keyboard warrior fanaticism have gone so far as to exclaim "this movie has ruined...
