Alita: Battle Angel Leaves Quidditch in The Dust with Action-Packed Motorball (Review)

Alita: Battle Angel Leaves Quidditch in The Dust with Action-Packed Motorball (Review)

I wanted to see Alita: Battle Angel from the second I saw the trailer.  It looked amazing. Except those eyes – Alita’s big giant eyes freaked me out but the rest of it was promising.  This is from director Robert Rodriguez who gave us From Dusk till Dawn, the series and Sin City but neither of these (or anything else he’s done) really reminded me of the tone here, so I wasn’t sure what Alita: Battle Angel would actually be like.   Read more

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is a Fast-Paced & Fun Sequel (Review)

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is a Fast-Paced & Fun Sequel (Review)

This week I watched The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.  I really liked the first Lego Movie, though I have to say I wasn’t sold on the ending.  I don’t want to say what that ending is, just in case it’s a spoiler (it’s not in the trailers for the sequel, after all)  Those of you who have seen it know what I mean – how would they build on what they revealed in the first one?

The LEGO Movie was arguably one of the biggest surprises of 2014, but what wasn’t a surprise after massive success at the box office is a sequel getting the green light to go into production from Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Animation Group. It was always going to be a challenge to live up to the success of the original, but the direction from Mike Mitchell, and pens of writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have crafted a solid sequel in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, which retains the spirit, tone and sense of humor from the original, and remains entertaining despite an air of familiarity.

The past few years have definitely been great for comic books. Not only have writers and illustrators come up with even more creative ways to present classic characters, but newer creatives have also added their own flair to the industry’s beloved icons. Of course, not every reboot is a good one — as we have seen from the likes of 2016’s Rebirth — but there are a few golden ones that break out of the mould and defy even the most stubborn naysayers. That said, here some of the best comic reboots on our radar:
