Movie Issues: Top Movies of 2013

Movie Issues: Top Movies of 2013

Earlier this year it could have been said that the movies of 2013 weren’t great, but after going back and relooking over the films that did come out, it turns out 2013 wasn’t full of terrible films. There were a couple here and there, but overall not terrible movies, just a year full of disappointments more so. A lot of the huge blockbusters failed to deliver on what the filmmakers promised or what the trailers looked like they’d give us. For example: Man of Steel. Not a terrible movie for some, but just ok overall. It had all the right pieces to the puzzle, but for some reason some of those pieces didn’t fit. It’s nothing compared to the bomb that The Lone Ranger was, but just a year full of ups and downs really.

Thor 2 is so close that we can almost smell Loki’s luxurious hair.  It’s making the air electric and Marvel is making sure it stays that way with Thor: God of Thunder #14, by maybe giving fans a taste of what’s to come.  In both God of Thunder #14 and Thor 2 the Asgardian Avenger will face off against Malekith the Accursed and teaming up with unlikely allies.  In GoT Malekith is out to kill all the Dark Elves of the Nine Realms with little in his way to stop him, other than The Mighty Thor.

Written by Marvel’s superstar Jason Aaron (Wolverine & The X-Men) with eye grabbing art by Ron Garney (Fantastic Four) this will be a must get book for those eagerly awaiting Thor The Dark World.  In this 4 page preview alone we see Thor tearing through the battle field on a CR 6 Dire Goat, surly dwarves in a beautifully laid out cavern for smelting, and… The Warriors Three… Volstagg!!

Movie Issues: Dual Review “Cabin in the Woods”

Leland and Spooky saw another movie, so you know what that means: another Dual Review! We take the best two nerds can offer and give it to you for the price of a single admission. This week, the boys were blessed by fate with the chance to see Cabin in the Woods.  Filmed in 2009, but held back by studios who wanted it converted to 3D (despite the writers’ strong objections), this horror/sci-fi romp is Thor’s Chris Hemsworth’s first staring role; supported by a handful of the Whedon-verse’s familiar faces.

Find out why Cabin in the Woods gets the Movie Issues stamp of approval as a recommended must-see.
