“The new RoboCop is a starkly dramatic tale of a man-machine hybrid struggling to retain his humanity. This is actually a pretty interesting concept for a movie. But it doesn’t feel much like RoboCop.”
In the explosive series finale, Birds of Prey comes dangerously close to quality!
“The great Wonder Woman, once a trippy, unique pulp sci-fi heroine, has been reduced to the generic Xena clone that Gal Gadot will apparently be playing onscreen. Because one warrior princess is the same as another, right?”
Zorro de Mayo comes to a close (two months later) as Sofie Liv joins Renegado to review a cartoon show about a future (all the way in the year 2015!) descendant of Zorro who fights for justice while riding a motorcycle instead of a horse. And did we mention his high-tech gadgets, which include a Z-Pod and a Z-Phone? No, really.
Nycea discusses the LumberJanes comic, Sailor Moon Tiara Rings, and the new female Thor.
Mendo closes out his trilogy of porn reviews with a look at a series of Blair Witch Project spoofs that are a lot better than the actual films, but still incredibly weird in their own right. Keep an eye out for That '70s Girl's A.J. Khan!
Sofie teams up with the Film Renegado one more time for yet another DreamWorks movie, and hey, look! It has Mexicans in it! That makes the Renegado a happy man indeed! And as always, Sofie is never ever sarcastic about anything.
“If the end goal is to introduce true, long-lasting diversity into comic book franchises, and appeal to a more diverse audience, one has to wonder if simply changing the genders and races of established characters is the right way to go about it.”
“I’m guessing concession sales suffered a bit during the theatrical run of this movie.”
Cecil looks at the erotic nunspoitation thriller Deadly Sins, starring Alyssa Milano.
Tom follows up his previous Retrotorials about what makes a great (or bad!) villain with a look at a kick-ass villain who was completely botched: the X-Men's White Queen, Emma Frost.
Time to roll out and watch explosions, stereotypes, and awkward bathroom humor galore!
“Rather than simply tell the story of Jim Gordon fighting the growing criminal influence in Gotham City, it appears they’re going to load the show up with all sorts of winks and nods to the Batman mythos.”
In this follow-up to the super-smash hit, the Fear Fan encounters unusual townsfolk, a burglar alarm that frankly could be worse, a thoroughly confused owl, and the cosmetic magic of Wicca.

“Instead, we get this crap, which supposedly knows it’s crap, which means we’ve now achieved Crap Inception, but at the end of the day, we’re still watching crap.”
“There’s so much downtime between events that it takes an eternity to get to the action we’re supposed to be getting immersed in.”
Obscurus Lupa helps Cecil tackle the wonderfully cheesy cliché-fest Lethal.
Renegado takes a look at the pilot that started the huge phenomenon that is Adventure Time. Get ready for an insane trip... literally!
