Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #15

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #15…

Jumping straight in this week! Be prepared, I’m going to be talking about the art a lot.

I expect gorgeous art from Campbell but she has outdone herself with some of the panels. Brittany Peer’s use of colour, or not in some cases makes them even more striking, whilst it appears series regular Shawn Lee was really let off the leash when it came to the lettering. Words straining against and bursting out of their ragged boxes gives the dialogue an edge, especially in the violent scenes they help depict. This arc has a great style that reaches a crescendo here.

Have I mentioned how cool Karai’s hair is? A minor thing to most perhaps. but she’s got a few looks here that always fit the occasion. I don’t mean that to sound at all ‘girls should »

Comic Book Review – Batman: White Knight #1

11 October 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Batman: White Knight #1…

A stunning opening issue that answers old questions in new ways, Batman: White Knight #1 has both excited and intrigued me in ways that no Batman comic has for a long time.

Writers have danced around the moral quandary of Batman’s crusade for years now. Sean Murphy tackles them head on.

How can the Police Force condone Batman’s vigilantism? If they do, is every beating he dishes out Police brutality? Is Batman’s mission the misguided energy of a broken man and doomed to fail? What about the property damage and public endangerment his vehicles and gadgets cause? Can a Police Force relying on such a character ever be considered clean and capable? Is Batman mentally competent enough to be trusted with such power?

When you drill down into things, Batman’s entire setup relies on incompetency at various levels. If his mission »

We obviously love summer, but there’s something about October that we can’t get enough of. Falling leaves, a chance to finally break out our favourite sweaters, and Halloween (easily our favourite holiday) all make the colder weather bearable. October is also the unofficial beginning of awards season, with studios releasing their biggest contenders as the year winds down.

While there are tons of cool movies hitting Cineplex theatres this month, there are also plenty of exciting movies coming to the Cineplex Store that you can watch from the coziness of your own home. We’ve picked five of our favourites for you here, so read on to see what new Cineplex Store title you should »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #74

29 September 2017 1:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #74…

Having recently watched A Few Good Men, my bar for courtroom drama is set really high. I’ll try not to compare Tmnt to Aaron Sorkin and Jack Nicholson.

Despite starting off with some pew pew action, Tmnt #74 quickly settles into the courtroom setting, and I’m thankful. With #73 leading directly into the five part Dimension X series, and Universe doing its own thing, it’s been a busy time for Idw Tmnt. I’m a bit tired! So to have a more measured, dialogue driven affair is welcome. That’s not to say I didn’t appreciate the pew pew, and the more malevolent aspects that come with Hakk-r; it just things easier to digest.

Speaking of Hakk-r, I’ve found that unlike the witnesses, who were given depth that can’t be gained in the main series. he’s (?) perhaps better the less I see. »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #14

20 September 2017 3:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #14…

I’m going to be really honest with you all. Some of you have hopefully been reading my Tmnt reviews for a whole now, and you’ll have noticed that on the whole they’re pretty damn glowing.

Idw being so consistent brings some real problems. Namely, when it is usually so good, what more can you say, unless you delve heavily into spoilers? I’ll try regardless!

Like the issues leading up to it, Tmnt Universe #14 is yet another solid month’s worth of story. Koya is still winding me up, whilst Bludgeon is becoming pretty cool. I wonder if he could make a shift at some point. Speaking of cool, I really like Ocho. What a big son a gun she is, and what a good fight. I particularly liked Karai attempting a Mortal Kombat style uppercut. Suffice to say »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #5

3 September 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #5…

Well now, that was not the ending I expected.

Seriously guys, the Dimension X series has ended in such a way that I don’t know whether it’s brilliant or terrible. Of course I won’t spoil it, but that always ties my hands a fair bit. I’ll hint it a little though; has a bad guy not knowing the whole story ever been the reason they didn’t succeed? The Idw series has been so strong that it can go a different way and try something else when it wants to, but I honestly don’t know if they’ve made the right choice here.

What can I definitely talk about? Well, in a series that has been consistently high in quality when it comes to art, Craig Rousseau also delivers. I particularly like how he’s »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #4

25 August 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #4…

The Tmnt land on a planet of criminals and lowlifes. In these surroundings, one heroic pilot is on the lam from the most powerful crime boss on the planet: a pilot named Ace Duck!

Chris is a good solid name. That it’s my own name has nothing to do with that…

So to see a Chris on art duties for issue 4 of the Dimension X series is pleasing. What’s even more pleasing is that his artwork is great! Very smooth, with a fantastic looking take on the turtle’s design. It’s boosted immensely by Mark Englert’s purple and pink hues. This is a great looking issue. I mean, it even has Leo wearing both his swords on the same side. I like that a lot, even if I’m not sure it makes sense.

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #3

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #3…

Journey to Stump Asteroid, where the biggest no-hold barred brawls in Dimension X can be found! The newest warriors to enter the ring? The Tmnt!

It’s been a long time since I’ve followed wrestling to any degree. I remember a simpler time, when I thought that the fights and drama were real. Now I see it for the soap opera it is.

It seems Mikey hasn’t quite figured that one out yet. It’s a recurring joke in Dimension X #3. and I found it very funny. The more I think about it though, shouldn’t he know better? It’s not the most original joke, but for me it lands each time so I can let it go.

It’s a very different setting than the past two issues, as the series has clearly set out that »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #13

17 August 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #13…

“Karai’s Path,” part 2 of 4. As Karai becomes embroiled in the Tokyo underworld, an ancient sword may show her the true path forward… if she can overcome the obstacles guarding it!

The theme of this arc appears to be ‘adapt’. We see all three characters, Karai, Koya, and Bludgeon, attempting this with varying degrees of success.

But what was my first thought upon finishing #13 of Tmnt Universe? Koya really needs to sort herself out! Shes a very dramatic character, always high pitched and on edge. She’s frustrating, exactly as real people are. And there’s the important thing; I don’t think of her as just a mutant or a huge deadly bird. She’s a true character, with strengths and weaknesses.

Bludgeon is really chill about the whole thing. He’s been through loss too, maybe even more so, but »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #2

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X #2…

In a world of giant flying fish monsters, only one creature is strong enough to survive—Anemon! Will the Turtles be able to defeat him and bring him to testify at the Trial of Krang?

I had a concern that each issue of the Dimension X series would follow the same pattern. The Tmnt find a witness, only to confront Hakk-r, who despite immediately becoming a favourite of mine, would fail in some contrived fashion that would undermine his status to set up a final battle.

Issue #1 had a more obvious structure to it (which didn’t stop me loving it), but without giving away too much, issue #2 manages to swerve away from what I expected, as it gives us another interesting witness.

Michael Dialynas did some great work back in issues #53, #54, and #55, when he dealt with Mikey and the Mutanimals. »

What Amazing Spider-Man 3 Would Have Really Been About

10 August 2017 1:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Marc Webb has revealed what his plans were for the ill-fated The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which eventually became the rebooted Spider-Man: Homecoming. Sony was relying on the series reboot to launch their Spidey universe and had high hopes for the second installment of The Amazing Spider-Man with Webb at the helm and starring Andrew Garfield. In fact, it was announced that Webb would officially be returning to direct the final movie in the proposed trilogy before the second installment even hit theaters, but as fate would have it, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 turned out to be panned by critics and fans alike and didn't do as well as Sony would have liked at the box office.

Sony scrapped any idea of a third movie happening with Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield and set its sights on rebooting the series once again, but this time in partnership with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

How ‘The Amazing-Spider Man 3’ Would Have Brought Norman Osborn Back to Life

Chris Cooper’s throwaway role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was going to lead to a more prominent role in the sequel that never got made. Director Marc Webb had planned to bring him back in a big way with The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which was once scheduled to come out in 2018. Norman Osborn would’ve also led Drew Goddard’s scrapped Sinister Six movie. […]

Marc Webb Talks Cancelled ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ and ‘Sinister Six’ Plans

10 August 2017 3:42 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Back in 2013, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ seemed like a sure-fire hit for Sony. During the production of the film, the studio was so sure of their franchise prospects that they began to formulate plans to open up the world of Spider-Man. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘ and ‘Sinister Six‘ were both announced before the movie had even finished filming. A few months before it’s release, director Marc Webb was confirmed to direct ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘. It was in this span of a few months that they began to formulate ideas for the already announced sequel.

When the film came out however, a combination of middling reviews, the infamous Sony hack of 2014, a potential crossover deal with Marvel Studios, and the lowest worldwide gross of the franchise (although still a respectable $709 million) caused the ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3‘ to be cancelled in a matter of months. Then, as history goes, the Marvel deal »

New look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Captain Marvel vs. The Hulk, more Twilight and Hunger Games movies and more – Daily News Roundup

9 August 2017 11:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Aww! Look At The Cute Thing!

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, some brand new images from Rian Johnson’s hotly-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi were revealed yesterday, featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke (Mark Hamill), Finn (John Boyega), Rose (Kelly Marie Tran), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Chewbacca and the Ahch-To inhabitants the Porgs and the Caretakers, along with shots of Supreme Leader Snoke’s Praetorian Guards, Kylo Ren’s Tie Silencer, and the Canto Bight location. Check them all out here.

The Jedi Speaks

And with all Entertainment Weekly photo releases, we also got quotes from Daisy Ridley, director Rian Johnson and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. “The fact that Luke says, ‘I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end…’ I mean, that’s a pretty amazing statement for someone who was the symbol of hope and optimism in the original films, »

Marc Webb Shares Details Of Unproduced Amazing Spider-Man Universe Films

9 August 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s crazy that a few short years ago, the character of Spider-Man was headed in a completely different direction. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had yet to come out, and anticipation was high that Andrew Garfield would play the character for quite a long time, and that the Spider-Man world would expand into something that would include the likes of the Sinister Six. 

Sadly, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spent a little too much effort trying to set up those films, and not enough making sure the movie itself was good enough. As a result, reception to the film was an all-time low for the franchise, and Sony ultimately scrapped any plans for an Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six movie. Of course, that doesn’t mean no preemptive work was being done on the projects.

Marc Webb Reveals Details of the ‘Spider-Man’ Film He Didn’t Make and Nobody Wanted

9 August 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After making a name for himself with his debut indie romantic comedy “(500) Days of Summer,” Marc Webb made one of Hollywood’s biggest leaps to direct “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its sequel, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. However, after a poor box-office showing for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Sony scrapped all plans for the third, but not before Webb and his writing team had devised a story. With the success of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” launching a trilogy of its own, that movie is definitely never happening, but Webb recently revealed details of what might have been.

Marc Webb discusses cancelled Amazing Spider-Man 3, says Norman Osborn would have returned to lead the Sinister Six

9 August 2017 12:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Due to the mixed critical reception and lowering box office returns from The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, much was left up in the air regarding the future of the series. Sony planned a SpiderVerse similar to Marvel’s McU, with Drew Goddard signing on to write and direct a Sinister Six movie, a Venom/Carnage spin-off was planned and there was even discussion of a young Aunt May story.

Speaking to Den of Geek Us, director of both previous entries, Marc Webb, has finally revealed what the plans were. “They were going to make a Sinister Six movie before we did the third [Spider-Man movie],” he said. “Chris Cooper was going to come back and play the Goblin. We were going to freeze his head, and then he was going to be brought back to life. And then there was that character called The Gentleman. We had some notions about how to do it, »

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six details surface

7 August 2017 6:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Don Kaye Aug 8, 2017

Marc Webb reflects on his time making Spider-Man movies, and gives a little insight into Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six.

Filmmaker Marc Webb burst onto the feature film scene in 2009 after an incredibly busy career as a music video director with (500) Days Of Summer, a bittersweet young romance that put Webb on the Hollywood map and made him a director to watch. He was courted after that to direct The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), a reboot of the Marvel Comics character that starred Andrew Garfield as the title character and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. While the film retread some of the same ground as Sam Raimi’s earlier Spider-Man movies, it provided a different enough take on Spidey to earn itself and Webb generally positive reviews.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), however, was a different story, with a muddled script that seemed too focused on building out a »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #73

2 August 2017 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #73…

“Trial of Krang,” Part 1 of 3. Infamous warlord Krang is set to go to trial in Dimension X. The Turtles are on hand to make sure everything goes smoothly. Of course it goes anything but! New villains, new worlds, and new intrigue await in the biggest interstellar adventure the Tmnt have ever been on!

The Idw Tmnt ongoing is now the longest-running Tmnt series of All Time!

What an achievement! As some of you will know I’ve been reviewing this series since about issue 15, so to see it come this far is very impressive. Most Marvel and DC titles can’t get to issue 50 before being rebooted so this is doubly cool.

A few pages into this new arc you’ll notice a little editor’s note for ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Free Comic Book Day 2017’. I suggest you find yourself a copy »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #72…

“Pantheon Family Reunion,” Part 2 of 2. A group of powerful and mysterious beings who decide the course of history can’t seem to stop arguing with each other. What happens when they realize that mutants may threaten their world order?

Tmnt #72, as far as I can see, is a promise.

It’s the promise of one almighty battle, as the Tmnt and their comrades take on something far bigger than ninjas, mutants, robots or aliens. It’s a battle that I’m honestly not sure about. I’ve now met the Pantheon, and I don’t know what Idw is going to do to give our guys a chance!

There isn’t really anything in terms of story progression, other than a resolution of last month’s cliffhanger. But to think less of it would be a mistake. Whilst this may not be a »
