Awesom_e JUNG_E
Posted By:

The first reviews for Train to Busan and Hellbound director Yeon Sang-ho's JUNG_E are trickling in and frankly look brutal.

We watched it ourselves before reading any of those reviews and found the film to be brilliant. Our only criticism is what might be some subtitle errors for early onscreen setting the scene text.

The Expanse Comic
Posted By:

The Expanse was an excellent television series and possibly many of its fans are still holding out hope of continuation. It did come back from the dead once, saved by big fan of the show Jeff Bezos and brought to Amazon after being cancelled by Syfy.

Instead of another return it's getting the comic book treatment with issue one of a twelve part series being published in April.
