You’re Going to Love Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special

Gino Carteciano Movies 0 Comments

Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special is your new favorite movie about Valentine’s Day. It may even inspire you to make babies.

If you loved Michael Bolton and The Lonely Island’s 2011 joint Jack Sparrow, this Netflix original will float your love boat. But instead of getting one spectacular earworm, you’ll get an odd yet very satisfying 54-minute orgy of songs, comedy skits, unexpectedly cool celebrity guests, and Andy Samberg as Kenny G summoning Peak ’90s Bolton.

Gino Carteciano Comics 0 Comments

Marvel is killing it with Inhumans vs. X-Men right now and my favorite thing about it is after the event, we’re going to get ResurrXion and a whole bunch of new X-Men titles. If you haven’t heard, I’m a big X-Men fan, so it’s an exciting time to be me right now.

The new crop of X-Men comics start with X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold, dropping in April 2017. I went through Marvel’s April 2017 solicitations and found some other comics I’m looking forward to. Let’s go through them, k?

Captain America #15 ResurrXion variant cover by David MaquezCaptain America: Steve Rogers #15 and #16

Writer: Nick Spencer
Artists: Javier Pina (#15) and Jesús Saiz (#16)
Cover Artists: Gabriele Dell’otto (#15), Daniel Acuña (#16), David Marquez (#15 variant), and RB Silva (#16 variant)

Nick Spencer’s run on Captain America: Steve Rogers is blowing my mind and I can’t wait to see how he’s going to do the coming out party of Hydra Cap. Plus: I need that #15 ResurrXion variant cover by David Marquez featuring Kitty Pryde and Lockheed.

Infamous Iron Man #7

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Alex Maleev

The despicable Ultimate Reed Richards vs. the heroic Doctor Doom who’s now Iron Man. I haven’t kept up with this title but now I need to catch up because this is insane.

No matter where you are in the world, you probably know someone who collects Funko Pop! vinyl figures. Thanks to the insane number of licenses in Funko’s catalog of collectibles, people ranging from sport fans to book nerds to pop culture fiends can find some Pop! they’d want to put on their desks — or their heads. I don’t know, people are weird.

Wanna play? I’m kidding. You don’t play with Pops. EVER.

Gino Carteciano Journal 0 Comments

Hello! I don’t know if you noticed but the last entry on this blog was posted December 29, 2015. I completely missed out on 2016. Sorry for that — or you’re welcome, if you didn’t want this site to come alive again.

Since I missed writing about things in 2016, here’s a quick list of some of the things that defined the year, plus my (non)reactions, before I give you an update on Baddieverse, Collectiboss, and myself. BECAUSE YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO KNOW STUFF ABOUT ME.

SPOILER: 2016 was the worst.
