Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #17, Sisters of Sorrow #1, Dark Days: The Casting #1, New Super-Man #13, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 #9, Angel Season 11 #7, Kill All Monsters! Omnibus Volume 1, The Guild Library Edition, and Dept. H #16… be warned, there may be spoilers…
With the Avengers shot across dimensions by the Leader’s static expander, the Black Panther must face the new Cabal alone. Can he get away and gather a team of new Avengers to not only defeat the Cabal, but save the original Avengers? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Avengers No More, Part Two.”
He may be most known for killing a celebrity designer in the fashion world. However, before he murdered this man, he is suspected of traveling from coast to coast, ending the lives of four men along the way and devastating their families. In this edition of True Crime Corner, who was Andrew Cunanan?
The latest trailer for Blade Runner 2049 just arrived, giving us more details into the plot of the film.
Visually, it’s arresting, but dialogue wise, things seem a little too…normal?
Check it out, and let us know if you’ll be seeing the film when it hits theaters in October.
Arya’s revenge spree kicks into high gear, the first cracks appear in an old alliance just as a dangerous new one is forged, and Sam makes a lot of new discoveries, not all of them to his liking. Game of Thrones‘ seventh season kicks off with its foot squarely on the gas and doesn’t let up the entire episode. Find out what what flying in this whirlwind of action right after the break. (and yes, the spoiler warning is in full effect)
We have lost writer/director/actor/visionary/legend George Romero. He passed away yesterday, peacefully in his sleep, after a brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer. His family was by his side, as he listened to the score to one of his favorite films, The Quiet Man. He even passed away as a class act. He was 77. Meet us after the jump for some of our memories here at Biff Bam Pop! of this amazing man.

Although they may have money, fame, and hordes of adoring fans, it must be tough to be an iconic rock and roll band. Every time they release a new batch of material, they run the risk of sounding either too much like their previous selves, or not enough. Worse still is being confronted with the dreaded “return to form” cliché.
For a band like Cheap Trick, it’s even dicier. To which “form” should they return? The sardonic hard rock of their debut? The bubblegum power pop of “Dream Police”? The AOR of “The Flame”? After over four decades in the biz, they’ve covered a lot of ground, so deciding which direction to take presents an ongoing quandary that I don’t envy.

It’s been a while since we’ve had an exciting dual at the box office, but things should heat up this weekend, as last week’s number one takes on a newcomer with some serious heat. Who will come out on top? Here’s our prediction:
War for the Planet of the Apes is the conclusion to the outstanding trilogy of films that have brought the Apes i franchise back to prominence. While Woody Harrelson may be the big name attached, there’s little doubt that Andy Serkis as the motion-capture ape leader Caesar will be who brings in audiences this weekend. Well, that and the fact that director Matt Reeves has made a serious name for himself. The previous film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes exceeded both the debut and gross of the original Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Fox and company are certainly hoping for a similar result. The only thing that could spoil the primate party is if Spider-Man: Homecoming continues its winning ways. It may be a battle for first place, and we predict that, with its already strong reviews and word of mouth, War for the Planet of the Apes will come out on top. Look for a first place debut with $75 million.
Iron Man is trapped in another dimension, and as the Avengers try to rescue him, the Leader and his new Cabal of super-villains confront them. Are Iron Man and the Avengers lost forever in these animated Secret Wars? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Avengers No More, Part One.”
