‘Judge Dredd #26:’ Comic Book Review My last experience with Judge Dredd was the Karl Urban film. Ugh, again, I thought, another rebooted film franchise. Thankfully, that opinion changed when I saw it on DVD, and I was immediately bummed that I didn’t see Dredd in the movie theatre, because it was awesome. In the 33 pages of the book that is Judge Dredd #26, I can see that the comic has the same level of awesome going for it, but things have changed for Dredd.
‘The Interview:’ Film Review Well, this has been a weird couple of weeks.

Just to recap:  Sony Pictures was hacked and many embarrassing emails were leaked to the public.  The FBI thinks North Korea is behind the cyber attack as retaliation for a Seth Rogen movie called The Interview.  The hackers threaten 9/11-style terror attacks on movie theaters that would screen The Interview on Christmas Day.  Sony cancels the release of the movie after major theater chains refuse to screen it.  Much outrage ensues.  Democrats and Republicans, who can’t agree on what year it is, both rush to condemn Sony’s decision to pull the movie.  Even the President of the United States weighs in and scolds Sony during the final press conference of 2014.  Meanwhile, and this is where it really gets odd, North Korea’s internet goes out; the internet for the entire country goes down for several hours.  Is the United States involved?  We’re not saying.  Then, Sony decides to release The Interview at a bunch of indie cinemas throughout the country.  Right now, about 300 theaters have booked the film to begin screenings on Christmas.  Now, today, the movie is available on YouTube.
The Future Will Be Carpeted: An Analysis of ‘Deep Space Nine (S2E23)’ “This man is a doctor where he comes from. And, there’s an O’Brien there, just like me. Except he’s some kind of high-up chief of operations. And, they’re Terrans. Maybe it’s a fairy tale he made up, but it started me thinking how each of us might have turned out, had history been just a little bit different.”

What is DS9 about? Say it with me, everybody! Consequences! Yes, the point I keep harping on reaches perhaps its most ridiculous extreme in this week’s episode. We’re going to discuss that, but to get there, I need to do a quick sidebar about facial hair.
‘X-Files X-Mas Special:’ Comic Book Review (Have Yourself a Spooky, Little Christmas) If I told you that my favorite holiday themed television event of all time is the X-Files episode titled, “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas,” would you promise not to laugh at me uncontrollably? (At least keep it to a giggle, will ya?) Yes, indeed. The sixth show of the sixth season, which guest starred Ed Asner and Lily Tomlin, is far and away my most cherished TV holiday viewing pleasure. Those that have read some of my past Fanboy Comics reviews of IDW’s X-Files comic series may have seen this admission coming like a freight train, seeing as I have espoused my love of the FBI’s most infamous sci-fi duo on countless occasions via this site.
