Ant-Man on BluRay (and in 3D)

heard more than a few people bemoan Ant-Man before they saw it. They thought Paul Rudd wouldn’t be a good super hero, and they thought it wouldn’t make for a good movie. People also bemoan the use of 3D in today’s blockbusters. I want to take a magnifying glass to this hill of bemoaning and fry it. Paul Rudd is a great Ant-Man, and Ant-Man is a great superhero movie. On top of that, the 3D in this film is a powerful tool that helps in immersing us in the world of the tiny.

SDCC Cosplay Gallery

 

IMG_1917

SDCC was a blast this year! I saw some of the new stuff that Hasbro is bringing out this year, took in Hall H panels on Doctor Who and The Hunger Games, presented a paper on superheroes and disabilities, and- of course- saw a lot of great cosplay.

I did not cosplay, but I did dress up for my panel and was told that my Dr. Spencer Reid (from Criminal Minds) was great.

Accidental cosplay doesn’t count, so here are a few of my favorite intentional costumes.

Taking your kid to AwesomeCon

day2_19

Convention season is just getting started. Yes, it’s a nerd-haven of discounted comics and hard to find toys. Throw in some celebrities and tons of like-minded fans dressing up in Cosplay, and hitting a convention can be a rewarding experience. But what about the little ones, you ask. I’ve actually found my convention experience has been upgraded since my son has been old enough to join me. We just hit DC’s AwesomeCon two days in a row earlier this month and I want to tell you how it went down taking a kid to a convention.

Mezco’s One:12 Batman and 2015 Toy Fair Display

112batman_03

Today is the twelfth anniversary of MillionairePlayboy’s lauch, so I’m starting off reviewing the One:12 Dark Knight Batman.

One of my favorite sights at the 2015 Toy Fair was Mezco’s One:12 Batman, based on Frank Miller’s Dark Knight series. Low and behold my persistence paid off and I was gifted the black and white version for being a loyal supporter of Mezco’s (This was my 14th Toy Fair). I was so inspired by the great look they captured, I took it into the studio and had a great time playing with the lighting and what not. Click below for some more pics of this amazing piece, as well as an overview of Mezco’s Toy Fair offering this year.
