Spoiler Free! Scream 4 (2011): Another Tiresome Reboot?

Action Flick Chick | April 19, 2011

First off, I love the original Scream trilogy, especially the first one. So there is a part of me that is glad to see that there’s possibly another trilogy on the way even though there is absolutely NO NEED to have another film. The original Scream trilogy wrapped up so perfectly! But they did it [...]

  Dark Horse Goes All Whedon On Us! I don’t know what I expected when I stepped into the Dark Horse panel at WonderCon. I was sure there would be announcements and discussions about their comic line. I didn’t really expect it to turn into a Joss Whedon love fest. Don’t get me wrong, I [...]

  DC Nation What happens when you turn up to a panel about DC Comics right before something big is going to happen in the DC Universe? Nothing, that’s what.

Hanna (2011)

Action Flick Chick | April 14, 2011

However, if you go into [...]
