I have had an insatiable love of movies my whole life and collected comics for over 20 years. The end result is I have Rain Man-like knowledge of both. As a dad of twins, I spend my time being a dad, traveling, and getting my boys caught up on all things pop culture.My favorite comic characters? Green Lantern (Hal) and Captain America (Steve).

Hidden Gems: Radioactive Dreams

Radioactive Dreams

Doubtlessly, most of you have never heard of Radioactive Dreams, but it definitely fits the “so bad, it’s good” category. It is a wacky post-apocalyptic movie that is pure 80s! Even though it’s next to impossible to find, if you like fun, weird post-apocalyptic movies, you should seek this one out.

Spiderman and Mary Jane: Face it, Tiger, There’s Love in the Air

The most famous couple in all of Marvel Comics is surely Spider-Man and Mary Jane. Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman are close runners up, but Spidey and MJ’s only true competition in comics would be DC’s first couple, Superman and Lois Lane. Thanks to those Toby Maguire movies and that famous upside-down kiss, though, I think this pair is advancing even on Lois and Clark.

Birds of Prey: The Harley Quinn Show

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Batgirl, also known as Oracle or Barbara Gordon. Black Canary. Huntress. Lady Blackhawk. Gordon and Canary are the original members of the Birds of Prey, while Huntress and Lady Blackhawk have been the other longtime mainstays. This movie, though, is all about Harley Quinn. That’s not entirely a negative issue, though, as the movie proves to be entertaining even if wildly untrue to the comics.

Some THING is in the Works

Back in 1982, John Carpenter released one of the most amazing horror movies of all time, The Thing. The story, based on John W. Campbell’s novella Who Goes There, has actually been turned into a movie twice with a 3rd movie following essentially the same plot but coming in as a prequel to Carpenter’s classic. This week, it was announced that Universal and Blumhouse are developing another one!

Green Lantern: The Animated Series – The Show that Ended Way Too Soon

Green Lantern: The Animated Series

Green Lantern: The Animated Series launched in 2011 thanks to the immense popularity of the Green Lantern comics which saw that wave of popularity begin with Green Lantern: Rebirth in 2004. Unfortunately, the series’ launch came the same year as the Green Lantern movie which, sadly, proved to be rather unpopular and damaged the Green Lantern brand quite substantially.
