Oh my god! The Read Pile is late this week. My apologies. Work has been crazy haven't had time to write. So if anyone is still interested I give you this week's READ PILE
#1 COUNTDOWN TO FINAL CRISIS 1 - Last issue I'm planning on righting a whole post on, because I totally loved it. I think it made countdown worth it. So i'm expecting this issue to stick by comparison, but I am interested.
#2 DEATH OF THE NEW GODS #8 (OF 8) - Also, this should tie into countdown 2, so I'm excited to see what the New Gods resolution will be.
#3 DYNAMO 5 #12 - I love this book. I wonder how many people read it. If not a lot of people read it, I think I might do some reviews to spur some interest in it. Have you read an issue of Dynamo 5?
#4 MIGHTY AVENGER'S #12 SII - Secret Invasion number one review is also on the way. I'm onboard with this.
#5 MS MARVEL #26 SII - I picked up the last tie-in because I liked the cover. I dropped Ms. Marvel around issue 15 because things with the lightning storm team we're pretty lame. I'll be on board this book till one issue after Secret Invasion and then I'll se if I drop it or not.
#6 WOLVERINE FIRST CLASS #2 - Really loved issue, review is on the way. PICK IT UP!
#7 SHADOWPACT #24 - Future, past and present Shadowpact collide, this shouldn't be to bad. Can Willingham come back, please.
#8 JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #20 - Meh.
#9 SECRET HISTORY THE AUTHORITY JACK HAWKSMOOR #2 (OF 6) - Last issue was interesting. Check it out, if giant robots are your thing.
MOMENT OF WEAKNESS
The "weakness of the week" introduced last week has been replaced by the more cleverly named Moment of Weakness. This week, due to my not being around, am going to give you three links for your pleasure and as my humble apology.
Welcome to Day 17 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon The 17th theme of the month is "We Live in a Society." Does social commentary have a place in horror films? You bet your pumpkins it does. Throughout the history of horror, films have always had something to say. Today is a day to ponder the bigger ideas in the way we most prefer--with a side of kills, screams, and blood! It might be an oldie you just never got around to seeing or something from a fresh young filmmaker who you haven't given a chance yet. The sky is the limit and bonus Pumpkin Points if you watch more than one movie a day on theme! Here are a few recommendations from the team, taken from our own watchlists for today... Group Pick: Dawn of the Dead (1978) directed by George A. Romero is one of the most iconic pieces of cinema and all 2 hours and 7 minutes is available this spooky season free on YouTube.
