The Power of Olympus on Your Gaming Table

Make Me a God by Durrilion We have all been there, walking through the vendors hall when suddenly something unexpected catches our eyes.  For me, at Gameon Expo it was a huge banner saying in large print “Make Me A God”. I had to know more, but did not have time at that moment.  So the next day I made a point of finding that booth again.  It took some…

It's Kiba Master Chief!!!

Kiba’s Master Chief Cosplay by Durrilion The completely adorable, and hardworking Kiba the Cosplay Corgi was out in his brand new cosplay at Game On Expo.  His mom (Nicole) made him a Master Chief’s armor set in 24 hours, from start to finish (not counting breaks).  Nicole began working on the outfit the Thursday before the convention.  By Saturday afternoon she was done! She did the blackwashing at the table,…

The Decadent Ball Returns as Labyrinth of Jareth Celebrates 19 Years

One of the most memorable moments of Labyrinth, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, has to be the moment Sarah eats the poisoned peach that Jareth has given Hoggle and it transports her into the hallucinogenic fantasy that truly was any 16 year old’s dream.  Glitter, crystals, ribbons and men and women in fancy dress dance and whirl around the room in a dizzying spectacle. With so much to…

Is Kong: Skull Island the Giant Monster Movie We're Looking For?

Kong is rather like the Sasquatch.  He’s hard to believe in.  The idea of a giant sea lizard who breathes fire created by an atomic bomb who can hide at the bottom of the ocean is more believable than a giant ape that is as tall as a mountain being able to hide from our eyes amongst the trees of a jungle. Perhaps that’s why Kong is placed in the…

The Once and Future King Returns to the Silver Screen in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur (Charles Hunnam) comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or…

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Comic Con Trailer

The Fantastic Beasts have escaped and are raging through New York in the new Comic Con Trailer!

Dr Strange Trailer is Magical and Mesmerizing

While DC and Warner Bros seem to be taking a page from Marvel’s book in adding dry humor to their movies, it seems with Dr Strange Marvel is borrowing a page or two from DC.  Doctor Strange is a straight and serious movie with no real sign of humor in either of its trailers. I don’t think anyone can deny that Benedict Cumberbatch looks like he was born to play…

Comic Con Justice League Brings Humor to an Ambiguous Trailer

Seems DC and Warner Bros. is finally learning what Marvel has known all along.  Humor goes a long way in helping a serious story.  If they learned their mistake from Suicide Squad and didn’t put every bit of wry humor into the trailer that exists in the movie. This is looking really good visually with a similar feel as the Wonder Woman trailer and it’s on my high list of…
