Five Film Predictions for 2020, That Are Sure to be Wrong
The actor's branch is the biggest of the voting body, and I just think they will put this one over the top for Baumbach's heart-wrenching emotional journey. Tenet will win the Summer Box Office Christopher Nolan's next film Tenet looks to be in the vein of Inception– in that mass audiences will flock to it and leave[...]
[REVIEW] Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Plays it too Safe
So, in a sense, FFXIV has returned to it's roots with this one. While the stakes are always high any time the Ascians are involved, the fate of two worlds are at stake in this expansion So there's certainly a lot of narrative drama. Additionally, the game adds two new playable races, two new combat jobs, and a[...]
Blue Mage will Hit Final Fantasy XIV Ahead of the Shadowbringers Expansion
One of the most requested jobs for future Final Fantasy XIV expansions has been Blue Mage, because FFXIV players just cannot get over their obsession with FFXI job classes And to be fair to them, Blue Mage is a pretty sweet job Unlike other mage classes, Blue Mages were defined by the sheer ridiculous number of spells they[...]
What the Fantastic Four Got Wrong (SPOILERS)
But abuse is abuse, and linking this catchphrase to childhood domestic violence was a massive misstep. The audience, or at the very least the FF fanboys in the audience, should have been fist-pumping the air when Thing says this phrase, muttering 'yes!' under their breath – instead, this corny but beloved phrase is made dark and[...]
A Bleeding Cool Endorsement From Tom Brevoort?
And especially when there are interested parties who profit whenever you click-bait into reading headlines about how all of your favorite characters are in danger of being destroyed, maybe consider the source of all of this craziness? He's targeting Bleeding Cool a bit here, but I would like folk to know, if you need to, that[...]
Matt Fraction Drops Off Fantastic Four And FF Over Inhuman Demands
Earlier this week, we ran rumours of Matt Fraction dropping off FF, and CBR have just confirmed that and more – that Matt will be leaving Fantastic Four and FF early – including issues already solicited. CBR states Fraction informed them that "his last solely written issue of Fantastic Four will be #12 (solicited for September),[...]
Fifteen Thoughts About Fifteen Comics – All New X-Men, Flash, Prophet, Fatale, RIPD, Before Watchmen (x2), All Star Western, My Little Pony, Superman, Teen Titans, A Plus X, FF, Lot 13 And Thor,
The paralls are clear… Angouleme-listed Fatale also loves a little parallel in this scene of sex and violence, equally posed with the participants in different positions… and temperaments This is the kind of thing that would seem horribly forced in a cinematic jump cut, here in comics it works like a dream. How the Cuban Missile Crisis[...]
Review: FF #22
More people should be talking about The Boys and more people should be talking about Hickman's FF family of books.   When Marvel does it right, they do it right so well Peter Milligan and Mike Allred's X-force/X-Statix run was during a time when editorial was taking chances on new, different stories That run remains one[...]
Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – Locke & Key, FF, Minutemen, Crossed, Gambit, Ferals, Mudman, Phantom Lady And Doll Man, Wolverine & The X-Men, The New Deadwardians, Ultimate X-Men, AVX Versus, JIM, Morning Glories
Some of the more experimental storytelling in comics today  even if, occasionally, it falters. And that, FF style, is how you do beginning-issue exposition Before we dive headfirst into a stellar story of grand politics, in conflict with love If you're liking Saga this may be worth picking up… Crossed Badlands gives us Bikers vs Crossed-style Circus[...]
Matt Fraction And Mike Allred Launch… Well, Who The Hell Knows, For Marvel NOW!
An extended family for the Fantastic Four? Freedom Foundation? Fantastic Forty? Something else? It's probably FF That's what USA Today suggests and they would know. An extended family for the Fantastic Four? Freedom Foundation? Fantastic Forty? Something else? It's probably FF That's what USA Today suggests and they would know.

It's 2012. Do You Know Where Your Comic Book Children Are?
What is up with children in comic books today? Or, rather, this week? Picking up a few comics and reading them, we have Miles Morales hitting his icon and inspiration with a dabilitating venom sting. The young Talia Al'Ghul taking it out on an innocent tree. And, bloody hell, Hit Girl using an in-teddy beear handgun. We need[...]
Review: FF #17 by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta
Eliot Cole reviews for Bleeding Cool; FF 17 is a one-shot story, a 'day in the life of' Peter Parker and Johnny Storm living together  One shots always seem to be a difficult and rare thing in superhero continuity, the last book I could rely on for a good done-in-one story was Bryan Q Miller's run[...]
Ten Thoughts About Ten Comics Today – Aquaman, BPRD, Morning Glories, Justice League Dark, New Avengers, Angel And Faith, New Deadwardians, Cover Girl, FF, The Twelve
More of this kind of thing, please.   There's been a considerable amount of arm dismemberment in comics of late, with Buffy, Prophet and X-Men being prime offenders Well, this week Angel And Faith joins the cool kid crowd with another mid-arm separation scene Emphasis on the ouch. Mind you, in Cover Girls by Guillem March from Image,[...]
Everything's Coming Up Celestial At Marvel (SPOILERS)
