GOTHAM RISE OF THE VILLAINS: THE LAST LAUGH

REVIEW: GOTHAM Season 2 Rise of the Villains ‘The Last Laugh’ episode

 

 “Your legacy will be death and madness” You see, this episode was intriguing and had lot of twists during the entirety of Gotham Rise of the Villains: The Last Laugh duration. During this episode we see how Gordon became more ferocious when dealing with street criminals while his partner Bullock almost toned down his misbehaving police attitude and even went to Penguin to stop him from making Gordon asking favors from the ‘King of Gotham‘. The episode was entirely focused on Jerome, the young kid who leads the MANIAX and whom we thought would be The Joker. There’s even one scene that […]

CW releases the Arrow and The Flash fan exclusive trailer called Superhero Fight Club to announce the respective Final Episodes of the two hit shows! The fan exclusive trailer seems almost like a real episode but unfortunately, it’s not. We would love to see this fight club scene if it were just as real part of the shows. It’s that part where Reverse Flash came in and Firestorm disrupted the fight that really highlighted the trailer. Always remember, the club has only one rule: There are NO RULES! […]

The Walking Dead Season 5 ends with Conquer; returns with Season 6 this October

 

 The Walking Dead Season 5 finale Conquer ended with a catapulting drama, so to speak. Something to reel in for preparation for the next season which we will all be waiting on October 2015. Conquer was a great finale and thanks to AMC that there were no major characters got killed this time. We thought so, but it did not happen. It was a guessing game as to who will breathe the last between Daryl and Glenn. That moment when Daryl and Aaron got trapped inside a car was a nerve-wrecking moment although we were almost sure that someone will rescue them just to keep […]

INSURGENT. Shailene Woodley as tris Prior in Insurgent film.

Insurgent is a fast-paced sequel that you shouldn’t miss

 

 I thought Insurgent will not surpass my expectations from Divergent. I thought Tris cutting her locks to short hair will turn her beauty to dullness. I had it all wrong. Insurgent kicks ass and if you haven’t seen it yet, go and watch it on your favorite cinema. Insurgent is the sequel to Divergent, a dystopian characterization of civilization 100 years after the war. The premise of Insurgent is that everyone is searching for power and looking for answers that were left behind from the 2014 Divergent film, an adaptation from the book written by Veronica Roth.

Young Bruce Wayne was also seen in his first solo journey while Alfred carefully stands by him all along. We saw Fish Mooney, and yes she is still alive, The Scarecrow, The Riddler, […]
