Preacher Season 2 Ep 5: Dallas

Written By: Philip Buiser
Directed By: Michael Morris

Sometimes, it’s hard to forget that these characters are, at their core, deeply fucked up people. “Dallas” reminds us of that by way of an emotional gut punch and the crushing weight of Jesse’s depression and anger. “Dallas” offers no insane fight scenes. No gay angels or cowboys from Hell. The usual manic energy of the show is absent here, replaced by tedium and routine. And yet, “Dallas” is the most intense episode of Preacher yet. It shows the nasty, dark heart of the characters we’ve been following, and the usual laughter and shock that’s typical of watching an episode of Preacher is replaced by a growing feeling of dread as things come to head, and a side of Jesse yet unseen is revealed.

After finding out that ...

Pathfinder RPG: Bestiary 6

If I told you I was excited about the new Bestiary 6 for the Pathfinder RPG, I’d be lying. I’m a player, a fairly casual player even. I really only care about the monster in front of my party: give me a sword and let me stab something. Actually, I’m more likely to use a ranged attack and snipe at it from behind a bush or something, but that’s completely off topic right now. My point is that I generally attempt to avoid GMing whatever game I’m playing. It’s just not my passion. So when I saw that Bestiary 6 was being released, I was fairly disinterested as I read the preview description. Then I saw two little words: Four Horsemen. Wait, what? Like, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Horsemen? Yes...

The Dark Tower

Directed by: Nikolaj Arcel
Written by: Nikolaj Arcel, Akiva Goldsman, Jeff Pinkner, and Anders Thomas Jensen

The Dark Tower is a disappointment.

Usually I’d start with a synopsis of the plot, but the plot of this movie is so barebones that it hardly matters, and I think a bit of a disclaimer is important here. The Dark Tower is based off of the Stephen King novels of the same name, which I’ve been a fan of for years, and in fact, I’ve been waiting for this adaptation of the series for years. To me, it’s a massive disappointment. Perhaps, for people who have not read the books, it will simply be a shallow, but serviceable action film, but for a fan of the books, it is a massive disappointment, and that’s bound to affect how I see the movie as a whole.

While King’s magnum opus ser...

Centipede #1

Writer: Max Bemis
Art: Eoin Marron

Based on the classic Atari game! When a terrifying creature from beyond the stars attacks his planet, Dale’s journey begins. But he is not out to save his world. It is already too late for that. As the lone survivor, the only thing he wants is revenge!

Writer Max Bemis (Worst X-Man Ever, Foolkiller) and artist Eoin Marron (Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original) bring you a tale of survival and vengeance like you’ve never seen before.

Centipede is a part of Dynamites current line of comics based on old Atari games.  Their first one, Swordquest, I reviewed the first issue and found it interesting how they tackled the plot for that game.

Now for Centipede I will admit I always assumed it was a sci-fi plot to the game...
