Resident Evil 5:Lost in a Nightmare—The first of the RE5 download levels is now up on PS3 and Xbox360. This is the story of how Jill dies before the events of RE5. It clocks in under and hour or so and hackers back to the original game play of the first game.
Castlevania Adventure A New beginning—This is a remake of the classic game for the Nintendo Game Boy. this is also the hardest of all the Castlevania games. One big issue is it had no sub weapons and made it very frustrating on top of how hard the enemies were. It stars Christopher Belmont. He would star in the sequel and in the Belmont Legacy comic Book thru IDW. You can check it out on the Wii Ware.
Grandfather to my son Frank Veach died Wed. Sorry for the updates on the blog they will be coming to night, for Comics, TV, Video Games and Shutter Island.
When you look at a film like Shutter Island you know your in for an emotional roller costar of suspense and a good popcorn thriller. Shutter Island is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane. Now I have not read the novel and many people told me its one of those nail bitters you can’t put down. The movie was a little like that. As it was slow-paced at times and other it moved quickly and made you not want to wait for the next scene. Martin Scorsese goes back to what he did in Cape Fear and gives us a great thriller. Maybe not as cut and dry as before, but a thriller no less.
Leonardo Dicaprio plays Us Marshall Teddy. Him and his partner are on their way to an asylum to look for a missing patient. The asylum is run by a shrink played by Ben Kingsly. They go thru the history of the island and why the patient escaped. They learn the house of un-American activates funds the island, and this begins the paranoid decent into madness the island takes them. If u pay close attention to certain details you can tell whats coming in the end. This both disappointed me and made me enjoy the film even more.
This film should get a decent nod at the Oscars for Scorsese, big problem is it got hurt by being pushed back to Feb from a Oct release date. We will have to see what happens next year in 2011. Check the film out at the Leominster Ma Entertainment Cinema.
Blackest Night: #7, GreenLantern#51, GreenLantern#47,— We con’t the storyline where the dead rise and the living must band together to defeat them. In GL Hal and the new Corps must stop Paralex(currently Hal Jordon again) and then the The Black Lantern . Over in GLC Kyle, Kilowag and John and the other Gls with the help of the Indigo tribe must Save Guy Gardner from fully becoming a Red Lantern. All these books are great They are among the best of the tie ins to the main story line.

Walking Dead #70– Our intrepid band has finally hit Washington DC and they hope they have found peace at last or have they. Could this quiet little town be just like the prison, or something worse. I don’t read the monthly WD I usually read the TPB that come out. If you can’t wait for the trades please pick up every month. Its one of the best Horror Comics out there and one of the best ever written. Kirkman does an amazing job every month on a book that needs more recognition. This is Horror drama at its best.
IronMan—Ironman does fall in to the Sci-Fi category. WIth the new film on the way I thought this be the best time to go over some of his books. I am Ironman is like Ironman 1.5. It acts as an in between for the two films. It also has great art work by Sean Chen. Then there’s Ironman vs Whiplash. This is basically a run ow of their history together. Another book to get u pumped up for the movie. Invisible Ironman is he ongoing title. This currently deals with Tony being restructured in to what he was before Warren Ellis made him like a living Metal Man. Then theres Seige the big Marvel crossover. This book will have Ironman returning at the end of issue 3 to help Cap and Thor kick Osbornes ass. If you area ig fan of IM I recommend checking out I am IronMan and IIM. IIM won a Esiner award for best series of 09.
Lock and Key—A great horror novel that has a new volume coming out soon from IDW. This is written by Joe Hill this is one of the creapiest books around vol 2 is coming out very soon in hardcover and vol 1 is currently available.
The Stand—The TPB is finally out in print, I think it came out last month. Issue 3 of the current vol is out now. This is a fantastic adaptation of King’s work and worth checking out if you love the book and the movie.
