Did you ever lose your job …Ever think you will never amount to anything other than menial work beneath you …Work that makes you feel defeated in life. This is something I feel a lot. I have not found a full time job in years that was not temporary or retail related. I read what the premises of what Bloodstain was and I latched onto this comic immediately.

bloodstain_vol1-1

Blood Stain tell the story of a young girl who can’t find a job and in the end takes a job working for what we perceive to be a Mad Scientist. The setting of the comic looks like something out of a twisted Disney cartoon and that’s exactly what it is. Artist Writer Linda Sejic who has been on this radio show was inspired to draw by Disney cartoons as a little girl. She has this great colorful visual style not seen in comics. Blood Stain looks like a Cartoon on paper. She has such a great flair for this art it suits the story.

The characters are both funny and engaging making me speed read thru vol 1 and more recently vol 2. You got to love how characters speak in different speech bubbles like Dr. Vlad Stein who has this icy death like tone according to Elliot Torres the main character. The facial expressions are captured perfectly in this story.

If you want to know more about Blood Stain and the author/artists check out my interview with her below and pick up both vols now at your local Comic Book Store, In MA I recommend Thats Entertainment, The Hall of Comics, Bedrock Comics, and Harrison Comics.

Rings

Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez WOw its been a long time since we saw one of these movies and now here it is, its better than part two I will say that lol, I know that’s not saying much but it is,. I think they try and do a good job recapturing the spooky gothic feel of the first movie. This film does have its problems and they expand on the back story of Samara a bit to much in this giving her a family and more sympathy and cant just seem to keep her a bad little girl who likes to kill people. It felt a little weird to have Johnny Galeki from the Big Bang Theory running around acting like a d bag professor I like the film but its not great, go watch the original Japanese films….sooo much better.

 

Get Out

I never thought I would find a movie from a comedy duo of Key & Peele to be so funny and ever though there are plenty of gags in the movie, this is a straight up horror movie. Directed written and produced by Jordan Peele and thru Blum House studios which is making waves in the horror community similar to Lions gate did years ago. The story follows Chris Washington played by Daniel Kaluuya  goes to his girlfriends parents house for the weekend to meet them and discovers the other people there of color are acting like zombies most of the time. He cant figure it out till his TSA buddy tries to look into the disappearance of a track star from a  few months back. When you do discover whats going on it puts a new meaning to the phrase WHITE PEOPLE BE CRAZY

Kong Skull Island

Giant Monkey goes SMASH!!!! Yup that sums up the movie. AND IT FUCKING AWESOME. The US has had three Major Monster Movies and they have been hit or miss, Pacific Rim great film loved by fans and critics but huge disappointment at the box office. Godzilla (btw stay till the end credits all I’m going to say) was good and a great special effects film with a decent story, but barely had the big G in it. I love how King is in every part of this movie and the human character are not dll and boring like they are in Godzilla. You could also call this the Guide to the Marvel Universe with Tom Hiddleston ( Loki) Bree Larson ( Captain Marvel) and Samual L Jackson ( Nick Fury) John C Reilly  (Nova Corps Commander) being in Marvel films. Go check this film out its a great action movie and one of the best movies of the year so far.
