HAUNT: Eli Roth’s latest Effort Fails to Impress

Haunt isn’t a bad movie. It’s just not particularly great either. It sits in a good middle ground where it could either be background noise or just something to watch with friends. I wouldn’t recommend watching Haunt if you’re expecting something that will have your heart racing, but I won’t say that it’s not worth at least one viewing.

BLOODSHOT #1 – Step by Step Introduction into the Awesome World of Bloodshot

At first glance it’s easy to chokehold or pigeon hole Tim Seeley and Brett Booth’s recreation of the Bloodshot character into Valiant Entertainment’s own Wolverine. But Bloodshot is more than that.

KLAUS (2015) – Looking Back at Grant Morrison & Dan Mora’s Epic Tale

Morrison managed to take a simple and well known character and made an epic origin story that manages to be both serious and fun. The writing is perfect and manages to make certain aspects that would normally seem silly, like Klaus saying “Ho Ho Ho” after cutting the demon’s head, work but also badass. Though there are a few things that are never fully explained, such as the nature of the forrest spirits, Morrison’s writing helps in still investing us in what’s going on. Jonas’s development from a selfish kid you want to punch to a more selfless kid willing to sacrifice himself is believable and my favorite part of the comic.
