Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #68

23 March 2017 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #68…

Desperate Measures” Part 2! The Mutanimals have been defeated and the Turtles are next in line! Which mutant will turn on his friends to survive, and which will risk everything to help another?

For the first time ever, I dislike Leonardo. As someone who has held him in high regard since…forever…I hate to say it. But Leonardo is a jerk in Tmnt #68. A complete and utter jerk.

Usually when Leo and Raph are at loggerheads I can understand both sides but will come down on the more reasonable and level-headed leader’s side. Not this time! Not only is Leonardo wrong, but I can’t even see where he’s coming from. Each turtle is growing, and whilst Raph’s relationship with Pepperoni is part of his personal growth, Leo is struggling. Raph might still be a bit of a prat when »

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 19 Review – ‘Twin Suns’

22 March 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Star Wars Rebels – ‘Twin Suns’…

Wow.

Now before we get started, I’m foregoing the ‘no spoilers’ rule on this review. This is an extremely rare occurrence for me, but there is no possible way I can talk about Twins Suns without touching upon what happens within it.

As it’s been a few days since the episode aired I’ve had time to see varied reactions. It’s also given me more time than usual to figure out my own. There are a couple of big questions that we can answer straight away.

Is this the best episode of Star Wars Rebels? No. Its ultimate focus is on two characters who aren’t crew of the Ghost so however good it is, it almost doesn’t count.

Did I feel slightly let down at first? Yes. Too much time on Ezra and the final confrontation not »

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 18 – ‘Double Agent Droid’

15 March 2017 3:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Star Wars Rebels – ‘Double Agent Droid’…

R2-D2 and C-3P0 are the most recognisable droids in Star Wars. They’re antagonistic but ultimately deeply caring relationship is told over decades and shows no sign of stopping. Personally though, I find the golden half of the pair rather annoying. Not Jar Jar levels, but bar his story telling on Endor I find him grating. So if one half of the team is letting them down, is there space for another pair to usurp them?

Double Agent Droid takes an opportunity before the series ramps up for its finale (much like last season) to give us a droid based tale that not only gives a great look at Rebels’ odd couple but also an interesting look into the Empire. This might not be an episode that will thrill or wow like last week’s but it’s still worth your time. »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #8

8 March 2017 1:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #8…

“Metalhead 2.0” Part 2! Donatello realizes that Metalhead is now following a new programing protocol and must make a drastic decision before it’s too late! Will the robot end up as an enemy or ally?

Eight issues already. Only feels like yesterday that Idw started their second ongoing Tmnt title with Universe. And what a series it has been so far. Including this issue we’ve now had two arcs and two one-shots; a very nice balance I think.

Ferrier and Gorham conclude their sci-fi tale as Donatello struggles with his doppelganger. Come to think of it, is doppelganger the correct term? Think about it. A digitized version of you, in a different body – is that still you? It is isn’t it? Yeah, you’ll be in the ‘right’ body and you’ll be older by as much time has passed since the transfer/copy was made, »

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 16 Review – ‘Through Imperial Eyes’

26 February 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Star Wars Rebels – ‘Through Imperial Eyes’…

David Oyelowo is what you might think of as a ‘proper’ actor. He ran a theatre company alongside his wife and has starred in Oscar-worthy films. He’s the real deal, so we’re very lucky to have him in Star Wars Rebels.

This week we’re even luckier, as we get to enjoy Oyelowo’s distinct tones whilst ‘Through Imperial Eyes’ focuses on Agent Kallus and his role as Fulcrum. Gran Admiral Thrawn is well aware that there is a spy among their ranks and he’s making moves to flush them out. It’s an extremely challenging time for Kallus as he juggles his responsibilities, creating a truly thrilling game of cat and mouse that brings a different dimension to the show.

Oyelowo brings several different aspects to Kallus. There’s the cool and authoritative Isb Agent, crafty saboteur »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #7

22 February 2017 1:07 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #7…

Metalhead 2.0″ Part 1! Donatello reboots a new and improved Metalhead only to find that the robot no longer functions entirely as designed… for better and worse!

Call it the cynic in me but despite the tremendous amount of goodwill I have towards Universe, a few pages in I wondered if issue #7 was going to be a clunker. Last month we had my favourite Idw turtle in the spotlight. But now the focus has turned to Donatello, possibly my least favourite (yes I said it!).

Well I’m happy to admit that I was a wrong. Tmnt Universe #7 is extremely interesting as it heads off in a decidedly Philip K. Dick direction. So much of the story is intrinsic to a very fundamental spoiler that I can’t say much. Suffice to say it’s a very well written story that brings forth plenty of questions. »

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 15 Review – ‘Legacy of Mandalore’

18 February 2017 12:59 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Star Wars Rebels – Legacy of Mandalore…

If you’re not caught up yet, here’s my review of the previous episode – Trials of the Darksaber.

Do you like watching Mandalorians do all the cool things that Mandalorians are known for? Do you appreciate a good Sabine story? You do? Good, because after waiting nearly a month for another episode of Star Wars Rebels it’s worth it!

Back in January we had Sabine’s strongest episode yet as she came into possession of the Darksaber, trained with her Jedi friends, and finally came to terms with what she needed to do, both for herself and for the Rebels. Legacy of Mandalore continues this story to a logical but somewhat sad conclusion. Before that however it’s another great episode as it shows how strongly Sabine has come forward as a character. She further proves that she’s »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #67

15 February 2017 7:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #67…

Desperate Measures” Part 1! The government’s hunt for mutants begins in earnest and their unconventional tactics will see the Tmnt hounded like never before! No mutant is safe!

If I had to describe Tmnt #67 in one word it would be ‘vicious’. Not since the severe beating that Donnie took from Bebop and Rocksteady have I seen violence that made me wince at each panel. It definitely does not mess around. Santolouco strikes a good balance on how visceral the damage done is depicted. It’s neither excessive nor too soft.

It’s not all fighting though, as the story also manages to capture the struggle the turtles are currently facing. All four brothers are finding life difficult without the strong guiding hand of their father and they all show it in distinct ways. This scene is the strongest of the book for me »

Comic Book Review – All-Star Batman #7

Chris Cooper reviews All-Star Batman #7…

Step aside, gentlemen—Poison Ivy is about to steal the spotlight in Batman’s continuing rogues gallery road trip. Scott Snyder teams up with mega-talent Tula Lotay to reimagine the Dark Knight’s most seductive villain. 

See Also: Read a preview of All-Star Batman #7 here

Scott Snyder and Batman continue their journey around the world in the second part of the second All-Star Batman arc, and it couldn’t be more different from last month.

Mr Freeze was the main antagonist of a very different kind of story, one mainly on prose. It was an interesting read. This month we’ve got Pamela Isley, Aka Poison Ivy, in a much more traditional style. I can’t say I’m that impressed.

That feels like a big thing to say, especially after my proclaimed adoration for Snyder’s work in last month’s review. But the »

Happy 85th Birthday to John Williams!

8 February 2017 3:41 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It is without question John Williams is one of the greatest composers of our time. Throughout the span of his career, the man has churned out several memorable pieces of music for films that can only be described as iconic. Whether its for Star WarsJaws, Indiana Jones or another film, everyone has heard at least one piece of music done by him.

To celebrate Williams’ 85th birthday, we at Flickering Myth decided to look back on some of our favourite scores or tracks from Williams and why they are so memorable to us…

Ricky Church – ‘Clash of the Lightsabers’ (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back)

It may be the Star Wars nerd in me, but his scores for the Star Wars saga is excellent. Its hard to name a favourite piece, but if I had to pin one down I go back to a lot, its ‘Clash of the »

Warner Bros. Will Take $75 Million Loss On Ben Affleck’s Gangster Misfire ‘Live By Night’

27 January 2017 9:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s hard to believe “Live By Night” could’ve gone wrong. Ben Affleck has proven he could make top-shelf blockbuster entertainment with “Gone Baby Gone,” “The Town,” and “Argo,” and getting together a cast including Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Zoe Saldana and Chris Cooper to adapt a book by Dennis Lehane seemed like it couldn’t lose.

Ben Affleck’s ‘Live by Night’ Flop Results in $75 Million Loss (Exclusive)

26 January 2017 4:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Live By Night” mostly fired blanks when it debuted in theaters last December, and its failure has resulted in a lot of financial carnage.

The expensive gangster picture was a passion project for Ben Affleck, who directed, wrote, produced, and starred in the story of a Florida rum runner. But critics ripped the picture, calling it dramatically inert and a muddle. That’s left Warner Bros., the studio behind the film flop, looking at a $75 million loss, according to insiders with knowledge of its financing and rival studio executives.

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #66

25 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #66…

Alopex is alone, her psyche reeling from Kitsune’s mind control. With Raphael and Nobody searching for her, will Alopex be able to find her way back to the side of good?

You can’t spend as long reading a series as I have without gaining favourites. Writers, artists, characters…it’s going to happen. Without solicitations or any future knowledge spoiling things, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this month’s Tmnt adventure has been drawn by one of my favourite artists. As soon as I saw the first page of Tmnt #66 I knew I was looking at Sophie Campbell’s work. This immediately set high expectations, but there was nothing to worry about.

I could go on and on about how beautiful this issue is. The way the snow affects how clearly we see each character. The snow itself »

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 14 Review – ‘Trials of the Darksaber’

24 January 2017 11:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Star Wars Rebels – Trials of the Darksaber…

An emotionally charged and amazingly well acted episode, Trials of the Darksaber is not only one of the best episodes of Rebels but is the episode where I finally connect with Sabine.

For a long time fans have complained about Sabine being a Mary-Sue. I’ll admit that I have joined that chorus on occasion. Looking back however we only ever saw Sabine in situations a Mandalorian should shine. It’s taken seeing her fail as she deals with her inner demons this week to realise that. In turn she’s been humanised and become a far more interesting character to me. I’m happy to admit I’ve been hard on her before and I understand that there has been a lot of other stuff to get through before we could concentrate on her in this way. It’s »

Chris Cooper: Seems it’s deserving of the 18 certificate. Sad that it looks like we’ll never see him suited up fully but there’s a lot to like here.

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #6

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #6…

Behold the debut of the Tmnt’s weirdest foe yet: Wyrm! When Michelangelo tries to help find a missing person in the sewers, he ends up discovering something he wished stayed in the dark!

Last month I moaned about Tmnt Universe being a victim of its own success, as its first arc and its Sister title conspired to make #5 appear relatively poor. It wasn’t bad by any means but came off as the worst when all held together.

It’s a new year now though, and Universe is the first piece of Tmnt goodness we’ve received in 2017. All I can say is it’s a good start.

First off…it’s a Mikey issue! As my favourite Idw Turtle it’s always good to see him in the spotlight. Writer/Artist Nick Pitarra, writer John Lees and colourist Felipe Sobreiro »
