If I could bet on what would be my fave film of the year EVER. The odds for Kick-Ass would be 1/1000, I would be spending 1000 pounds, just to get 1 pound back. Practically giving money away. Yet I would still feel, it was money well…
”Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, this action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup's world is turned upside down when he…
I recently saw Tim Burton's Alice and Wonderland. And all in all, I liked it. Burton once again kept my eyes glued to the screen with the quirky visuals that inhabited the screen at all times. However, as I was walking out of the theater, I found myself feeling as though something was missing. I ran through the list of possibilities in my head. Was it the visuals? Of course not, God forbid Burton ever fail in… Continue
Last year was certainly a great year for Sci-Fi fans. We had big blockbusters like District 9, Star Trek, and to top it off, Avatar. For fans of this genre, we haven't had a year this good in a long time. But, between all the hype there has been for these movies, there was a great movie that almost everybody missed,… Continue

Several hours ago, I got back from a screening of Kick-Ass at my local theatre (I live in the UK, and they're having advance screenings this weekend). I don't want to spoil too much, but if you want the bottom line, Kick-Ass is the craziest, most over-the-top and absolutely bad-ass superhero movie ever made.
Right from when Dave Lezewski (Aaron Johnson) puts on that mask and becomes Kick-Ass, the movie starts on an upward spiral that never comes down. The action is…
Between SXSW, my birthday, and, um, spending entirely too much time playing the PS3 games I got for that birthday, I’ve kind of screwed up my schedule lately. I’ve fallen WAY behind on the reviews of DVD/Blu-Rays. Not that I wasn’t always late, but this time I really screwed the pooch. So, in all fairness to the kind folks who sent me these discs with the best of intentions, and to you, the Spill reader, who I’m so sure hangs on my every word (yes, I’m a… Continue
Marvel Comics Presents: What If...The Human Torch was Captain America?
Had I seen that title on the stands at my local comic book shop years ago, I'd have said, "Naaah....how the heck are they going to explain that?". Yet here we are in 2010 with Chris Evans, who's… Continue
The League of Extremely Ordinary Gentlemen: Volume 4, Issue 6: Yehudi and the Usual Geekery
That would be our buddy Yehudi Mercado who comes on the 'cast to talk about his prodigious output of comics, artwork, and even film, some of which you can check out for yourself at his website. We also geek the hell out about all kinds of stuff like the Cap casting, Green Arrow drama, Lost controversy, and more. Plus, we're… Continue
Hot Tub Time Machine comes to theaters today, and in honor of the movie’s release, I’ve compiled a special list of movies to watch beforehand. So get ready for some gut-bursting laughter with these suckers:
I just want to say that, I did not hate this movie; I simply see things I would do better. Oh yes, I’m talking Hot Tub Time Machine, the latest from Steve Pink. I know I am going to be a little random, but when I saw that the director was a
guy named Mr. Pink, I had a Reservoir Dogs flashback. Now after visiting this
guy’s IMDb page, I see that he directed one of my very very very…
