Judge, Jury, and All Around Fucking Awesome

by Scott Speegle


       Judge Dredd. Oh boy. The anomaly that keeps getting movie adaptions despite being a character seemingly so unfit for the Hollywood movie treatment. I've really dug Judge Dredd for awhile and while I've only recently dived back into the character, I definitely have a soft spot for the deadpan lawman. Going into this new movie reboot I've had feelings of both excitement and fear. I've been really excited to see how the serious take on the serious character plays out but also I've had nagging fears that this installment will be the final indicator that American audiences overall are just plain apathetic to Dredd on the whole.

Hit the jump to read whether my fears are founded or if the movie kicks mega ass. (Spoiler alert: it kicks mega ass)

NWC Figure Fraction TURTLEMANIA: TMNT 2012 Donatello

Hello all, Geddy Cahoon here after a brief pseudo-hiatus to once again give my verbose thoughts on various plastic playthings. One of the good things about running your own website is that you can kind of come and go as you please in a sense when things get hectic or whatever in your life. I'll admit I took advantage of that over the past few weeks, but now I'm prepared to get back into the swing of things and review a toy a week once more. Only difference is, Figure Fraction will now be updating on Thursdays due to a wrestling-related commitment I now have to honor each Tuesday.

This week, I bring you what could conceivably be the final edition of TURTLEMANIA here at NWC, a review of the TMNT 2012 Donatello. Why is this possibly the final edition of Turtlemania, you ask your monitor? Well like many things, I've grown bored with the idea of themed reviews each week. I'd rather be looking at varied things from my collection than have to punish myself by reviewing nothing but Turtles for the next two months. Plus these reviews tend to get a tad redundant.

However, I almost always finish what I started, so I'm at least reviewing the last of the 2012 Turtles before calling it quits on Turtlemania. Of course, with the new cartoon debuting in two days, my interest in TMNT could be re-piqued, and Turtlemania could very well go on.

But for now, let's just dive right into my review of the TMNT's resident geek, Donatello!

Figure Fraction Delay

Hey all, Geddy here with a quick update. The Figure Fraction has been delayed until tomorrow or possibly later in the week due to a family emergency. Thanks for understanding, sorry to anyone looking forward to it.

Breaking Bad Review: Season Five, Episode Eight - Gliding Over All

By Geddy Cahoon

Hello everybody, Geddy Cahoon here with the final NWC Breaking Bad Review (Ramble?) of 2012. Last night's episode? Gliding Over All.

It was an episode that was simultaneously slow moving and very tense, ending with a cliffhanger that we all should have seen coming but was in no way less flooring due to that fact.
