What do you do if you know you’re dying and that when you die, you know that you’re going to hell?
If you’re the conniving yet charismatic rogue mage John Constantine, you do the only thing that can be done: you hasten the inevitable.
That’s sort of the premise behind the famous comic book character’s story arc in the 2005 film called, appropriately enough, Constantine. Directed by Francis Lawrence, his big screen debut after making a name for himself in music videos, and starring Keanu Reeves as the titular anti-hero, Constantine wasn’t all that well received by either critics or fans upon it’s debut. But in the seven years since it’s release, a near-cult audience has embraced the film and hope, an emotion not necessarily synonymous with the character himself, abounds in terms of a sequel being made.
That time may soon be upon us. Until then, there’s still the original to affectionately watch and discuss.
If you’re looking for a new network television show to give you a few scares, you’re only real option is 666 Park Avenue, which stars Terry O’Quinn, Vanessa L. Williams, Henry Martin and Rachael Taylor and debuted last night on ABC and CityTV in Canada.
Sadly, while it has some moody moments, the premiere episode only really succeeded in recalling other and better horror offerings.

It took longer than expected, but I finally had time to beat Diablo 3, and it was pretty impressive.
Let me start by saying (for those who don’t know, or are looking to get into Diablo for the first time) that D3 is a dungeon crawler. For some people, that’s an immediate killer. It’s a very repetitive game that doesn’t stray from it’s walk/point/kill/repeat formula. If that’s not something you’d enjoy, then it’s probably not the game for you. If it is, read on!
