    ‘Suicide Squad’ (movie review) at Forces of Geek

     

     

    Produced by Charles Roven, Richard Suckle
    Based on Suicide Squad by John Ostrander
    Written and Directed by David Ayer
    Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie,
    Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney,
    Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje,
    Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne

    One thing we can all agree on is that the DC Cinematic Universe got off to a rocky start and seemed doomed with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    The controversy won’t end with this film, but I can say writer/director David Ayer finally gets it. Nothing is ever perfect but this movie is more than what meets the eye from the promos.

    Spanning superhero, comedy, supernatural and military genres and introducing visual elements more commonly found in video games, Suicide Squad is a wild ride.

    ‘Tetris: The Games People Play’ by Box Brown (graphic novel review) at Forces Of Geek

     

    Tetris: The Games People Play
    Written and Illustrated by Box Brown
    Published by First Second
    Release Date: October 11, 2016
    EAN 9781626723153
    Price: $19.99

    The New York Times Bestselling author Box Brown (Andre The Giant: Life and Legend) returns for his second major release through First Second to be released in October of this year. With herds of roaming purple-eyed glow kids tripping on curbs to collect the latest Pokemon lately, we thought this a fitting time to review the origin of Tetris in Tetris: The Games People Play.

    Brown illustrates the graphic novel using two color printing (yellow and black) and a simplistic but humorous style that is uniquely his.

    The story of Tetris doesn’t include Man from U.N.C.L.E. espionage, but it does have a dramatic element and compelling story that is difficult to put down.

    Back in my day, my family, like Brown’s, all fought over the grey screened Game Boys and this addictive Russian video game, shrunken down from the full color version on our ‘big’ TVs.
