Robert Kirkman‘s Invincible is just another one of his comic book properties that are heading to TV. Although, this one will be just a little bit different as it is being designed as an animated series. Still, that doesn’t make it any less interesting, as noted by the stellar voice cast. New reports say that Steven Yeun, who had a starring role in The Walking Dead, the the AMC television show adapted from Kirkman’s comic book series, has landed the lead voice role. And he’s not alone. The actor will be joined by J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Mark Hamill, and so many more. More on the report below.
Every once in a while, a critic must suck up his pride and cover a film that would have never registered on his radar. For me, that is what I experienced with the latest entry in the Disney Fairies series, Secret of the Wings. Though this Tinker Bell-themed movie presents nothing new to the direct-to-video blueprint, I must admit that this “flitterrific” film offers pleasant amusement. Let’s fly right into this review.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Directed by Edgar Wright

Release date: August 13, 2010
Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is a variation on the classic romance story: Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy has to defeat her seven evil exes in order to date her. The premise seems simple, but there are several layers to the story. Although the core of the story is the love between Scott, a twentysomething slacker, and the mysterious Ramona Flowers, the subplots and supporting characters make for a lively and truly entertaining story.
The screenwriters borrowed heavily from the six-volume graphic novel series, especially the first three volumes. People who have read the whole story will love the references such as the diagram of what belongs to Scott and what belongs to his gay roommate Wallace, excellently portrayed by Kieran Culkin. It was also great to see Scott’s band Sex Bob-omb playing.
