One Shot Comic Book Review: Black Dynamite: Slave Island

17 miles off the east coast, Noah Hicks presides over an island resort like a sinister Mr. Roarke.  This particular island rendezvous allows its visitors to live out fantasies of a much darker variety.  It’s actually a giant plantation where slavery is still very much in effect.  When Black Dynamite catches wind of what’s going down, he makes a trip out to Slave Island with his sights set on putting foot firmly to ass.  What he encounters there is the stuff of nightmares.

Movie Trailer: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Okay, I’ll admit it right up front.  I was the one guy who actually liked Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in spite of the unforgivable racial caricaturing and schizophrenic tone.  I stubbornly maintain that stance even in the face of Michael Bay’s recent “admittance” that the film was “crap.”  The frigid reception of the film by critics and even fans surprisingly didn’t affect its box office prospects in the least.  Even more surprising is that Michael Bay and company actually appear to have taken the criticisms into account while making the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
