Deeper, Darker Sea

The Mariana Trench When I first learned that Jason Statham would be portraying Dr. Jonas Tyler, a marine biologist and paleontologist, in an adaptation of MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten, I visually winced.

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies!

Jump City I know that a lot of people (or at least a vocal minority) dislike the Teen Titans Go! animated series on Cartoon Network.  They blame it for destroying the extremely exceptional Teen Titans cartoon and even Young Justice even though I believe that Cartoon Network itself should be blamed for the cancellation ofContinue reading “Teen Titans Go!
