Sketched Discussion: Captain America is the protagonist

One of the things I love about the new Captain America movie is how the character of Captain America evolved from idea to legend. And it led me to a startling revelation: Captain America, not Steve Rogers is the main protagonist of the movie. I'm sure you're  going, "Ah wha?" but in most superhero action movies, the film revolves around the secret identity with only the superhero part acting as a tool to flesh out his character. Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, and Hal Jordan get the story arcs, while Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern are just parts of their character. Captain America flips that on its head. Spoilers and discussion after the jump.

My Red Skull/Hydra promotional poster that goes with yesterday's Captain America poster. Collect them all!

Captain America: The First Avenger

Bust out your shields and strap on your nazi stompin' boots, we're reviewing Captain America: The First Avenger!

The X-Men Poster design went over pretty well, so I tried making some patriotic propaganda! AND I'll be having a Red Skull one for another Captain America article!
Captain America isn't just a great comic book movie(and oh, what a fantastic comic book movie it is), but a great war movie summer blockbuster.

Sketched List: 7 favorite gory horror scenes

After just watching Dead Snow(surprise it's on this list!) I wanted to make a list of my 7 favorite gory kill scenes in Horror movies.  Fair warning for those squemish: Loooota blood. Also disclaimer, these aren't necessarily the best gory scenes(add your own in the comics if you think I missed something!), these are just my favorite, and just ones I can remember, and just ones specifically from horror movies. On to the gore!

Tried something new this time, quick photoshop zombie kill. What do you guys think?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2

Whip out your wands and jump on your broomsticks, we're reviewing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2!

That's right, team Neville all the way. And yes, I know where that sword is protruding from. You're welcome, ladies.

The last installment in the Potter serious is appropriately epic and a grand finale to end the decade long series.

Horrible Bosses

Puke in a bucket and leave work early, we're reviewing Horrible Bosses!
I'm sorry, we're you expecting me to draw 3 guys instead of a sexy dentist Jennifer Aniston? Oh you poor schmuck. 

From the previews and all the glowing reviews, the movie looks hilarious. But does it live up to its expectations?

Sketched Fiction: Transformers Dark of the Moon

Have written enough about Transformers already? Probably. Is this going to make Transformers any better of a film? Definitely not.  Am I still going to complain about it on the internet some more? Decidedly so. I wanted to try something new today, since I'm a writer and I love fiction, I'd thought I'd be a little pompous and write how I think the third installment should have gone. Spoilers, ranting, and crazy bayformer fan fiction ahead!

Bad Teacher

Get out your rulers and textbooks, we're reviewing Bad Teacher!

I really like this cartoonized form of Diaz, though I may have overdone it with the markers. Thoughts?

This is a pretty funny movie and Diaz does a great job at being a character you simultaneously love and hate.  She's a strange protagonist to root for, but it's a fun and enjoyable ride nonetheless.

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon review

Cue the Explosions, we're reviewing Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon!

Did this in flash, not sure how successful it is.

I think everyone already knows whether or not they're going to see it. I've heard reviews saying it's the best one yet, and others saying it's just playing terrible.  My humble opinion, it's got amazing 3D action, but I literally went, "Wait, what?" every 15 minutes.

Dark of the Moon Predictions Revisited!

So I recently viewed Transformers 3:Dark of the Moon, and you can read my review of it soon. But before I saw the movie, I made some predictions about the plot. How well did I turn out? Find out and see! Spoilers abound!
Fun Fact: I erased the pencil only to realize it looked too clean and then proceeded to add more pencil!
