‘Coco’ to take the top spot from ‘Justice League’

It’s the Thanksgiving Weekend in the United States, so first of all, thanks to all of readers, along with the American contingent of Biff Bam Pop! writers who do such an amazing job. This Canadian is thankful for you all.

Is there a surefire number one this weekend? In all likelihood, yes. Here’s our prediction:

Coco is a brand new film from the folks at Disney/Pixar. I should just stop right there, since that brand is all most audiences need to head to theaters. With its Day of the Dead theme, Coco has already broken records in Mexico, and with a 94% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes, it’s clear that this is a quality film that should appeal to audiences this weekend. Look for a first place debut with $60 million.

‘Godless’ Is the Western Series We’ve Been Waiting For

It may seem strange—to those of us who’ve become accustomed to TV shows which obfuscate the narrative to generate suspense—that the first episode of Netflix’s Godless lays everything bare. Yet, that is exactly what this show does.

Tick. Tick. Tick. Goes The “Doomsday Clock #1” On The Wednesday Run

“Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future.”

That’s what Steve Miller expertly told us, in the 1976 Steve Miller Band mellow release titled “Fly Like An Eagle”.  The song went to number 2 on the US Billboard Charts and the lyrics about time ceaselessly moving forward while we worry about life and death and freedom of the soul in the present tense, has since become quite famous.

Tick. Tick. Tick.

That’s the general sound effect for a clock, an apt aural representation of time, of course. But any reader of comic books knows that the Tick. Tick. Tick. sound is also the noise a bomb makes – right before it’s detonated.

Interestingly, today’s long anticipated release of DC Comics’ Doomsday Clock #1, the first issue of a twelve issue monthly series, plays on all three of the “time” and Tick outcomes. And all for various reasons:

The future the DC Comics Universe!

The past of DC Comics publishing!

The critical and commercial bomb that the Doomsday Clock series could be!

The best kind of art takes risks, right? Doomsday Clock #1 is a huge risk – and we all can’t wait to dive right in!

Games Well Played: A Review of NXT War Games

Working as I do on Saturday night, I wasn’t able to watch this event live and thus watched Survivor Series before sitting down to what was actually the first half of the weekend WWE network event double header. This worked out really well for Survivor Series, because following War Games would not have been an easy task. War Games was really, really something.

Battle of the Brands: WWE Survivor Series

Having the WWE network is what it would be like having a pizza place in my basement: I don’t always want pizza, but I’d eat it at any time and enjoy it. This is what the network does so well; it offers me something I like all the time while also being there with a nice big Sunday meal when a monthly event rolls around.
