Secrets of The Sire

We’ve got a show for you this week. Can’t say it’s great, can’t say it’s not. I can DEFINITELY promise no insane beatings as we welcome back Rus Wooton, one of the creative members of the Walking Dead comic book team back on to talk the season seven premiere.

I’m done.

That was my initial reaction after watching the episode earlier this week (in my case Monday morning…not the way to start your work week off believe me)

So I walked away thinking that’s it. Not because the violence was over-the-top (it was). Not because I didn’t see the deaths coming (I did…and then I didn’t) but mainly because it just stopped being fun. I had this whole top 10 deaths in comcis and movies bit planned. You know the Gwen Stacy, the Jean Grey, the Han Solo…nope. Not doing it. This wasn’t fun. The deaths in this episode wasn’t fun. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have in the past. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have for Game of Thrones. This was just. Not. Fun.

What did you think? Too violent or faithful to the book?

NEXT WEEK: We’ll bring Rus BACK on next week to discuss all the Walking Dead stuff he WASN’T allowed to spill this week. PLUS: we gauge YOUR reaction to the brutal death. And we countdown the Top 10 most powerful deaths in comics and movies!

So Entertainment Weekly put out it’s list of “50 Most Powerful Superheroes.” And of course they got it all wrong. And they did it on purpose too.

Yes, I understand this list is meant to spur conversation. Putting Superman at the top of the list wouldn’t really spur debate  (or would it? Maybe considering how bad his films have been recently…) but did I expect any less from a magazine like Entertainment Weekly who continually pushes a PC agenda? No. So why am I up in arms? I think it’s because EW is the closest thing we have to a magazine about comics anymore. It’s filled the void once occupied by Wizard Magazine. And that’ what makes me sad.

See for yourself. Go check out the list and the criteria for their conclusion and tell me if you agree. Then tune in Wednesday 8pm ET TalkingAlternative.com for MY take on this mess.

On this week’s episode of Secrets of the Sire: Is the Power Rangers movie the next Batman V Superman? Has it jumped the shark already by going too dark? A great article on The Guardian poses that exact question:

“There is something quite off-kilter about the idea of a Power Rangers movie with a budget of $150m, and starring – for goodness sake – Hollywood big hitters such as Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. This could never have happened before the current explosion of comic-book movies, and the debut teaser trailer for Dean Israelite’s 2017 movie leaves us wondering whether a big-budget take on the long-running TV show might be the worst idea since Josh Trank’s dark and brooding Fantastic Four last year.”

PLUS: Walking Dead Season 7, Ken Bone and our NYCC recap with Derek Becker of Comic Pros & Cons
