AlbinoDarkBeast is one of his generation's last true polymaths. He currently leads a nomadic lifestyle along with his laptop and beloved German Shepherd, Noelia, somewhere in Mexico; he enjoys reading fiction and writing about himself in 3rd person.
So Kick-Ass 2 is scheduled to premiere August 16th in the US, amidst a sea of fan expectation. The previous installment was well-received, earning several awards and critical acclaim.
I, for one, am not that thrilled.
Editorial: AlbinoDarkBeast On The Various Responses To The Aurora Shooting; Plus He Goes Postal On Some Schmuck
Facebook page. Within less than 12 hours, it had generated more that 4,000 visits and more than 200 comments. There were, however, some very offensive and inflammatory responses. Messages filled with hate and prejudice, misguided and derogatory. I usually pay these people no mind, but one user in particular caught my attention because of his swift and hateful response.
“In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country. In two months . . . the world.” If you’re idea of fun includes vampires, biological horror, scary folk tales, and the undead walking the earth, AlbinoDarkBeast gives you the insight on Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain.
Sometimes you came across things that are just plain wrong. This was and is one of them. Jordan Burchette thinks himself as some kind of a genius that doesn’t need to explain anything to people. He should know better!
This doesn’t happen very often. If you know me, or have read any of the crap I irregularly type for this site, you’ve probably figured out I’m an opinionated smartass that never, ever keeps crap to himself. This time however, you can mark your calendars. A historical landmark. I genuinely cannot form an opinion in my head about Eric M. Esquivel’s “The Blackest Terror”!
Is “Batman: Year One” worth your time? Is it possible that it lives up to the fantastic work by Frank Miller? Or is it a poor attempt at adapting a graphic novel that is considered by many as the greatest batman story ever? Find out here in our advance review of the much hyped “Batman: Year One”!
Greetings, fellow geeks! It’s been ages since my last review and I must apologize. Life (you know, that crap that happens when you’re busy making other plans, according to Lennon) caught up on me and sneaked me some nasty curve balls. I’ll make it up to you, I promise. I’ve been meaning to write this [...]
Over the time I’ve written for this site, I’ve noticed that, while most of my comic book reviews just wither in the shadows, movie reviews attract the most negative criticism. It’s evident that trolls thrive on movie reviews much in the same way I thrive in trollophagy. So… fine, bring it. Come AT ME, TROLLS! [...]
This site hacking thing really got out of proportion. I find it so hard to believe that an “adult” can take petty differences and blow them out of proportion so persistently. It’s this kind of behavior that perpetuates the immature comic freak stereotype we sadly have to live with.
I’ve just been notified that, for the Nth time, some despicable body orifice equivalent of a person has hacked our site and deleted 3 months of hard work. As of the moment of this writing, I have also received news of some reliable leads on the culprit. This being the situation I am issuing a [...]
‘Suuuup! I’m an unusually good mood today. It’s the comic books. This week has been marked with the unprecedented fact that none of the books I’ve read are crap. Sure, my contributions to this website started as a vent for my fumes (May all of Hades rain blue flames on your sorry butt, Jonathan Maberry), [...]
So I’m a big sucker for underdogs. I love anything that diverts from the mainstream, because more often than not it changes my focus. I think it keeps my mind agile and my imagination flowing. The thirst for intellectual innovation and variety encompasses almost every aspect of my life, be it food, music, cinema or [...]
My apologies for the two-month absence, readers, but in my defense, I was actually saving limbs and ruining lives. I’d show you pics, but there’s kids reading this website. This week I had the amazing opportunity to review several upcoming (and upstanding) comic books, and thanks to Agent Burgos’ incessant nagging, I got off my [...]
The greatest perk of writing for a comic book web site is not, as most of you may falsely believe, hanging out with hot women on fast cars and passing out on vodka and red-bull every week with all the awesome writers and artists. It IS cool, but nowhere near as cool as the geekgasmic [...]
I discovered martial arts in the 80s, right about when Daniel-san f-ed it up for every martial artist of our generation with his retarded crane stance, spastic moves and girlish poses. At the same time, re-runs of The Green Hornet were being aired on the local free TV, which was our family’s primary source of escape from reality. [...]
Last week I was running low on Lexapro©, and I was aching for an outlet for my misery. Said outlet came in the form of “Klaws of the Panther” , a masterfully crafted sack of cartoon dog crap that happened to land on my hands at the right time. I have to say, even on [...]
