“The Hunger Games: MOCKING JAY – Part 2” REVIEW!

Mocking Jay - Part 2

Jennifer Lawrence once again proves to be the perfect choice for Katniss Everdeen in “Mocking Jay – Part 2”, the fourth and final chapter of ‘The Hunger Games’ saga, based on Suzanne Collins’s best-selling trilogy.

The first thing that should be taken into account is that this is a series you really need to see from the beginning. Just like with ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, this is not a movie you can walk into without any previous knowledge of the story and characters, without being hopelessly lost, but that’s not a bad thing in my book.

Comic Zombie presents… THE SPIDER-MAN MOVIES!

Spider-man 2

Welcome back to “All Ur Movies Are Belong to Us!”, our ongoing series (covering nearly every entry of every comic book based movie series in existence). This time around we watched all the Spider-man movies: from the Raimi trilogy to the “Amazing” Spidey films.

Spider-man (2003)Through the ups and downs of this franchise, we discuss what worked, what didn’t, and touch upon what we’d like to see in the future as Peter Parker joins the MCU in the coming years. Between bitching and laughing, we had a great time writing these reviews and hope you have just as much fun reading them!

Summary: It’s Game of Thrones with cardboard homes as this wild new series brings an inner city’s hidden world to life in contemporary fantasy style! First Coast City’s homeless suffer under the thumb of tyrant, Philip the Ax. As the seeds for a violent coup begin to sprout, it falls to benevolent vagabond Simon to try to stave off war and bring peace back to the alleys.

Welcome back to the Superhero HQ Adam!

Thanks! It’s great to be back.

What’s your origin story?

Nothing Spectacular, Amazing, Fantastic, or Uncanny.

I’ve always been creative, or at least been drawn to creative things. I wanted to be a comic book artist when I was a kid, but never really stuck. Years later, I still loved the creative aspect of storytelling, so I started to write.

So tell us about “Kingdom Bum”

Kingdom Bum is a wild story about a secret society of homeless people who live right under our noses. I originally referenced Game of Thrones in my longer pitch to Action Lab, and when we were preparing to solicit the book they synthesized that down to the tag line “It’s Game of Thrones with cardboard homes,” which perfectly captures our concept.

At its core, Kingdom Bum is about many of concepts and problems we face in the world today, but viewed through a slightly goofy and irreverent lens. What does it mean to be free? How much of that freedom is worth risking for safety? How difficult is it to open a can of beer when you don’t have any thumbs?

One thing Rick and I were concerned about while writing the book was that we didn’t want the work to come off as insensitive to the real world homeless population. There is a lot going on in Kingdom Bum, and if we’re fortunate enough to be able to continue telling stories in this world, the place these characters hold in the larger scheme of things will become apparent.
