New To Netflix Instant Streaming October 2014: Catching Fire, Galaxy Quest, Django Unchained
Empress Eve   |  

Netflix Streaming

Wondering what’s new for October 2014 in Netflix Instant? There’s plenty, but I’m here to give you some recommendations, since Netflix likes to make it difficult for you to figure out what’s new in their service in movies and television series.

Some of my favorite picks include Sons Of Anarchy: Season 6, The Walking Dead: Season 4, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Galaxy Quest, Django Unchained, and Tombstone. There’s plenty more, but below are some of my favorite picks for the month.

Book Review: Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual
Waerloga69   |  

Monster Manual Header

Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual
Hardcover
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: September 30, 2014
Cover Price: $49.95

The second of three core books from Dungeons & Dragons has arrived (you might remember me mentioning it in this article here)! Today we welcome the Monster Manual to our D&D rulebook collections. Wedged between the covers of this tome we find classic monsters along with a plethora of less common creatures. In total, more than one hundred fifty types of beasties are compiled here. But it’s more than just statistics here, many of the entries are steeped in legend and lore.

Included within these pages are twelve different dragons, over half a dozen giantkind, and a multitude of demons and devils. Creatures unique to Dungeons & Dragons like beholders, displacer beasts and mind flayers are also given space within this compendium. Orcs, kobolds, ogres, and the like are in here, too. And no monstrous book would be complete with the ever popular goblin and related kin. I could go on and on, but there is no need. Suffice to say there is a wide array of creatures that any Dungeon Master will be happy to throw at hapless adventurers.

Streaming Review: The Sacrament
Dr. Zaius   |  

The Sacrament Logo Banner

The Sacrament
Blu-ray l DVD l Instant l Netflix
Directed by Ti West
Written by Ti West
Starring Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen, Gene Jones, Amy Seimetz, and Kentucker Audley
Magnet Productions
Rated R | 99 Minutes
Release Date: May 1, 2014 (U.S.)

It is such a welcome feeling to a horror nut like me to watch a movie and actually feel unnerved and uncomfortable. That was how I felt just minutes into Ti West’s The Sacrament. In a genre as cliché driven as horror, ominous foreshadowing is par for the course. “Let’s investigate,” “I have a bad feeling about this,” “I’ll be right back”… we’ve seen it all before. But there’s something about real-life plausible situations that can be much scarier than possessed dolls and masked killers. Enter Eden Parish.

Patrick (Kentucker Audley) works for Vice, a multimedia company from New York that specializes in controversial stories mainstream news outlets won’t cover. His sister Caroline (Amy Seimetz) is a recovering addict who joins a reclusive parish that ups and leaves the U.S. to an undisclosed location outside of the U.S. This seems like the perfect story for Vice so Patrick, lead reporter Sam (AJ Bowen), and cameraman Jake (Joe Swanberg) set out via helicopter to meet Caroline and the residents of the “heaven on earth” that is Eden Parish.

G.I. Joe #1

Editor: John Barber
Special Thanks to Max Brooks
Covers by Jeffrey Veregee, Cliff Chiang, David Williams, Dave Dorman & Robert Atkins
IDW Publishing

G.I. Joe #1 ushers in a new era of awesomeness for the Joe team. It’s G.I. Joe against Cobra, the…..peacekeepers. Yes. You read that right. Peacekeepers. As in people who keep the peace. Let’s see how that works out for them.

For the first time in history, G.I. Joe has a woman at the helm. Literally. Writer Karen Traviss makes the jump from military fiction novels to comics, and the one burning question that I have is, why didn’t she do it sooner?

TV Review: Forever 1.1 “Pilot”
Dave3   |  

Forever Ioan Gruffudd

Forever
Season 1 Episode 1 “Pilot”
Directed by Brad Anderson
Written by Matthew Miller
Starring Ioan Gruffudd, Alana De La Garza, Joel David Moore, Donnie Keshawarz, Barbara Eve Harris, Judd Hirsch
ABC
Air Date: September 22, 2014

Forever is pretty neat.

I watched the pilot for this new ABC series this weekend, and to be honest, I didn’t expect to enjoy it. It was compelling enough to keep my attention. And to get this part out of the way, I absolutely recommend that you check it out if you were already at all interested in it.

Ioan Gruffudd plays Dr. Henry Morgan, a New York City medical examiner who, 200 years prior to the current timeline of the show, discovered that each time he shuffles off this mortal coil, he returns to life, resurfacing resurrected from a nearby body of water.

Again, I liked the pilot. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out some epic trope-ridden laziness on the part of the show’s writers.
