34 – The Book Club On Fire – Hunger Games Book 1

Set in a dystopian future The Hunger Games is a story that has some chilling similarities to our society today. We talk about the first book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. We each discuss what our strategies would be in the Hunger Games, both socially before and physically during the game, and then after that get into some literary nitty gritties. Did Suzanne Collins take the easy way out with Rue? Is Katniss an unreliable narrator, and is there anything…

How To Watch Star Wars In Order – Episode 32

On May 25, 1977 (A Long Time Ago in a galazy Far, Far away…) Star Wars Episode 4 came out in the movie theaters. This movie was a milestone for many and helped launch the science fiction boom of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s which can be compared to the Comic Book Movie boom that we are currently in. The Adventures of the Jedi Luke Skywalker fascinated many while the villain a Dark Jedi or Sith known as Darth…

September 9th Comicbook Review

I am so stoked going into this week, but a little sad.  And it all stems from 1 issue.  This will be the last issue of Rebels which has been one of the best titles I have ever read.  I hope it lives up to all of the hype I just gave it.  I also get some of my current favorite titles this week; Outcast, Giant Size Little Marvel AvX, and Ninjak.  There were quite a few #1s this week,…

September 2nd Comicbook Review

So I have got to be honest: as I started looking through what is coming out this week (alphabetically) I was thinking, exasperated, “It is gonna be one of those weeks”.  By the time I finished the list, and my list subsequently, my attitude had changed.  Maybe I shouldn’t make preconceived notions while I am still in the B’s.  What I thought was gonna be a week of “I guess I gotta pick where to start.”  turned into “I JUST…

Yes. Yes, this is a fertile land, and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land, and we will call it… “This Land.” I think we should call it “your grave!” Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! Many think that Fox betrayed Joss Whedon and Firefly, but in a way they actually created a cult following for the show.  On This week’s episode we talk about Firefly’s Martyrdom and how it created the passionate Brown Coats, and…
