NECA’s Evil Dead 2 Kicks Ash

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sam Raimi’s cult classic Evil Dead 2, NECA has released a new series of 6″ scale action figures. The first wave is hitting stores now, and gives us two versions of the movie’s iconic star Ash (played, of course, by fan favorite Bruce Campbell). The lunk-headed hero has a definite place in many a fanboy’s heart, and NECA’s new figures– based on the movie’s “Farewell to arms” and “Deadite Ash” sequences, are far and away the best renditions of the character ever to see release. Thanks to NECA we have the chance to get an up-close look at both new versions of Ash… check out the review for the full scoop!

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.4 – “Mystery Date”

Matthew Weiner is not playing games. “Mystery Date,” the ironically-titled latest episode of Mad Men proves that, with a plot denser than any I can remeber for this show, and a rapid-fire succession of compelling and downright brutal character moments which bring the pacing of this season to a breakneck new speed. It makes for a real edge-of-your-seat thriller of an episode, and a high point, even for this perpetually stellar series.

Are Michael Bay’s TMNT Plans Worth the Nerd-Rage?

Next year there will be a new live-action movie version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming at us from Michael Bay (he of Transformers infamy), and the producer’s recent hints that the Turtles’ origin is being revamped met lots of harsh feedback from fans online.
