Last year fans of comic books and cartoons based on comic books lost a great storyteller far too early with the untimely death of Dwayne McDuffie. This week, we have been given a gift: Justice League: Doom, Dwayne's last work.

MOVIE REVIEW: Chronicle

Wil Avitt's picture

I walked into Chronicle with certain expectations. I expected to see an ok action movie. I expected to see yet another rip-off of the TV series Heroes (another because the 2009 film Push was the first). I expected to see an exciting movie that I would probably buy on blu-ray and watch again. I expected the movie to be derivative, a rehash, good enough but not remarkable by any means. What I did not expect, and what I actually got, was to be blown away by the experience.

February 3rd marks the opening of Chronicle, the first of what is shaping up to be a great year for science fiction movies. We've got a third and final outing for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight, the return of Agents Kay and Jay and the debut of the very first comic book superhero All-Star film in Marvel's The Avengers, possibly the most anticipated film in this year's summer movie season. Join me as we take a look at this year's science fiction movies and discuss what has potential and what will probably fall flat.

As I've stated elsewhere on this site, I'm not a rabid Doctor Who fan, but I am a fan. I was only nine-years-old when the show's original run ended, and I wasn't a fan of British stuff when I was a kid (everyone talked funny, after all). When I was 25 the show was relaunched and, having long ago given up my prejudice of how Brits talk (though they do still talk funny), I gave the show a chance. I was immediately hooked and watched the show every chance I got. Christopher Eccleston's Ninth Doctor (there have been NINE?!) was phenomenal, and Rose was hot.
