Movies

Deadpool

Deadpool – The movie we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! The love story for the ages….well not really. Deadpool tells the story of Wade Wilson, a quick-witted mercenary in love that is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Seeking any way to be able to survive, he’s experimented on by an evil scientist to try to bring out his latent mutant powers by way of repeated physical torture. Once his mutant healing powers manifest, his whole body is disfigured and out for revenge against the man who made him that way and stole his life. Once he sets his sights on the man that made him a mutant, the X-Men, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, help Deadpool and getting the revenge he seeks. Because this movie is made by FOX, Deadpool does exist in the same X-Men universe as the previous X-Men movies and makes fun of his previous appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and even Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern, and anything else you can think of. Be sure to check out our full review of Deadpool! Stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, and Stefan Kapičić. Rated R.

TV

Killjoys: Season 1

Killjoys: Season 1 – The first season of a Canadian/SyFy produced Scifi TV series (as pretty much always happens) about a group of bounty hunters in a distant solar system that try to remain neutral in a class war that is disrupting the system. The second season is coming in July 2016. Not Rated.

Scream: The TV Series - Season 1

Scream: The TV Series – Season 1 – The first season of the MTV horror sort of comedy series based on the movie franchise but not having much to do with the movies. Even the scream mask is different. The second season is set to premiere later this month. Not Rated.

Beauty and the Beast: Season 3

Beauty and the Beast: Season 3 – The third season of the CW reboot of Beauty and the Beast TV series from the 1980s before the last season starts over the summer. Not Rated.

Cartoon/Anime

Alpha & Omega: Dino Digs

Alpha & Omega: Dino Digs – What the heck is this?! There are even more sequels planned for this series. This franchise somehow is becoming the new Land Before Time in number of sequels. Apparently the wolf family moves to a golf course and somehow discovers dinosaurs. All in 45 minutes WITH a musical number of some kind. Not Rated.

Scooby Doo and Lego: Haunted Hollywood

Scooby Doo and Lego: Haunted Hollywood – A LEGO version of Scooby-Doo as the LEGO version game of the Scooby gang tries to save a old movie studio form both developers and monsters. Other than a few gags, it just doesn’t seem to have the same good LEGO humor and is just a means to sell toys. Not Rated.

Transformers Robots In Disguise: Season 1

Transformers: Robots In Disguise: Season 1 – The newest Transformers cartoon, this time being led by a talking Bumblebee voiced by Will Friedle, with the first season also now on Netflix. Apparently though the look is very different, this series is actually a sequel to Transformers: Prime, though you would never really know it as it seems to hold up pretty well on its own. This has been a fun reboot from what I’ve seen so far so definitely give it a look. Not Rated.

Fruit of Grisaia: Season 1

Fruit of Grisaia: Season 1 – A sub only series from Sentai Filmworks about a boy transferred to a strange prison like school with only 5 other students, all of them female with a strange and sometimes deadly quirk. Not Rated.
