    Escape to the Movies: Kingsman: The Secret Service - Can Lightning Strike Again?

    Glad the movie is good. I've been looking forward to seeing this for a long time. With that said, I've watched the last "Escape to the Movies" and read the last "Intermission", I'm done. With the firings from a couple of weeks ago to this I now have no reason to visit this site anymore. Good...

    Escapist Podcast: 167: Assemble the Team

    I'm sad to see the other podcasts go, I was a faithful listener to the Comics and Cosplay and Movies and TV podcasts. Oh well, still glad to still be a part of the Escapist community. I'll just have to dive into iTunes to find other places for the comic and tv talk.

    The Big Picture: Secret Crisis

    This was great, and I laughed out loud when Bob mentioned that the Avengers movie didn't cause people to run out and start buying comic books, because that's almost exactly what I started doing after seeing the movie.

    A Note From Your Friendly Neighborhood Editor in Chief

    Any word on who is taking over for Ross Lincoln? also, are the podcasts he helmed still going to continue? I only as because the "Comics and Cosplay" podcast as instrumental in helping me to begin reading and embracing comic books, and I enjoyed the hell out of the "Movies and TV" podcast, so I...

    Escapist Editors in the Midst of an Exodus?! -Updated-

    This blows. Obviously because people have lost their jobs, but being selfish, also because, of the podcasts that the Escapist offers, the 3 that I listen to are now in limbo. I mean, I'm guessing they'll continue with whoever takes over for those laid off. Ross Lincoln and the "Comics and...

    Game of Thrones Season Finale Review: Sitting on the Throne

    The final Hound/Arya seen bugged me, it bugged me when I read it, and it bugged me when I watched it. To me, it felt like the Hound had, if nothing else, earned a quick death from Arya. *EDIT* That link is one of the main reasons I didn't like how The...

    To me Game of Thrones will never be the same (S4E8 discussion)

    I've read the books, and I knew it was coming even then, simply because there was no way in hell Martin was going to have Tyrion survive another Trial by Combat, he couldn't be that lucky twice. Here's the thing, it's a fantasy series, so it's well within the realm of possibility to have an...

    The new Godzilla movie is a rip-off

    Honestly, in my opinion that makes the movie even better, the best Godzilla movies have minimal Godzilla in them. I mean, that's what the audience wants right? So by holding off on giving him screen time, you've hopefully worked folks into such a lather that they go completely ape-shit when he...

    'Rassle Dazzle: A Wrestlemania Recap

    Because they may have been, Taker went to the hospital via ambulance directly after the match, so there's a running theory that he sustained a legit injury and couldn't finish the match as scripted.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Full Length Trailer Is Hilarious and Familiar

    To be fair, right before that there was also a cheescake shot of Chris Pratt.

    What was the first album you bought?

    I don't know if it was the first one I bought, but the first one I have a clear memory of buying was "Americana" by The Offspring.

    Man of Steel 2 had better have a lighter tone.

    As I said in another topic on a different forum, "Man of Steel" was a re-imagining of the Superman story, correct? Then it stands to reason that the new Superman would have a new Lex Luthor. All of the actors that have been mentioned so far, Brian Cranston, Bruce Willis, hell, even Dwayne...

    Hitting... Women

    I would like to think I would never strike someone in anger, though it's probably a case of the old "everyone's got a plan until they get punched in the face" chestnut. When getting into fights or arguments, my father always taught me to just walk away, that little piece of advice has saved me...

    Moffat Clears Up The Doctor's Numbering...

    The more I think about it, the more I'm thinking/hoping that it's not a case of Hurt's Doctor not counting as a regeneration, but as him not counting himself as THE DOCTOR, because of what he did to Galifrey. So yes, he's the 9th regeneration, but he's not the 9th Doctor, that's how I'm...
