Travis discusses the recent comic book The Rift, a time travel story not unlike Quantum Leap, with an interesting story and decent art.
Two shows, two premieres: THE ORVILLE and STAR TREK: DISCOVERY. So which one is the better STAR TREK?
Travis takes a look at the movie based on the board game Clue, and finds that it’s pretty good overall.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may be the most eagerly-awaited sequel outside the Star Wars brand, and James Gunn has delivered a winner. Some online critics feel that it doesn’t live up to the first, but I believe they are confused by the fact that the first one was an unexpected surprise they didn’t know they wanted, and this one is an eagerly anticipated treat that they are pumping up high expectations for. Since that joy of discovery is replaced by expectation, which can’t really compare, they are feeling a self-inflicted disappointment that is unwarranted. I loved it. Gunn still has some tricks up his sleeve.
What if H.G. Wells chased Jack the Ripper through time? John talks about Nicholas Meyer’s 1979 movie TIME AFTER TIME and checks out the new TV series.
STAR TREK journeys to its strangest new world yet: A Photoshopped comic book by John Byrne.
We’re wrapping up Sherlock Holmes Month here at the Atomic Junk Shop, and since we started it with the fourth season of Sherlock, I thought it’d be appropriate to finish it with a look at an earlier attempt to create a Sherlock Holmes for the modern day: ZERO EFFECT.
Released 19 years ago on January 30th, 1998, ZERO EFFECT didn’t make much of a splash in theaters, but it developed a cult following on home video. Written and directed by Jake Kasdan, it stars Bill Pullman as quirky private investigator Daryl Zero and Ben Stiller as his beleaguered assistant, lawyer Steve Arlo.
