Rumor Patrol – Samuel L. Jackson Wanted for ‘Die Hard 6′ Return

- 04-15-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

For many, Die Hard with a Vengeance was the last good Die Hard movie; for others though, Die Hard was the last good Die Hard movie, so let’s just say it’s a contentious debate and leave it at the idea that A Good Day to Die Hard was horrid, horrid, horrid! Still, it collected a few coins at the worldwide box office, and Bruce Willis said he’d enjoy another go in John McCain’s shoes, so a follow-up is inevitable. But will it suck? Perhaps Fox is buttressing their odds by adding one of the reasons that Vengeance was so enjoyable, by re-teaming Willis with Samuel L. Jackson. (more…)

With just over two months to go until the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction (AKA: Trans4mers), it strikes us to think just how much we don’t know about the upcoming sequel to 2007′s Transformers. But now it looks like the production is trying to close that knowledge gap by promoting the heck out of the film, which is both a continuation of the Transformers saga from the previous three films, and a launching pad for a brand new trilogy of films with a new cast, new story line and everything. So what’s in store? Franchise filmmaker and originator of the Bay-hem aesthetic, Michael Bay, recently shared some thoughts… (more…)

Ever heard of Maisie Richardson Sellers? If you haven’t that’s okay, because she has a smaller internet footprint than Rudiger Smoot.

So who might she be on the hook for portraying? Read on. (more…)

The rotating door to the production of a future Masters of the Universe movie turns again, and as we say goodbye to G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu, we say hello to Jeff Wadlow, who is now rumored to be the man for the job for the big screen trip back to Eternia. Is Wadlow the filmmaker to break this deadlock and bring us a live-action He-Man again? No one – except maybe the Shadow – knows. (more…)

Following-up on last night’s awesome tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be welcoming back a senior member of the now-compromised world security organization for an episode late this month. True, it was reported early this week that Col. Nick Fury in the person of Samuel L. Jackson would be back for S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season finale, but Maria Hill, and her portrayer, Cobie Smulders, will be back before the end of April. If that’s all you want to know, bail now because Winter Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. spoilers follow. (more…)

Holly-Hunter

…Batgirl! Kidding. (Hopefully.) The recent announcement that the Academy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter was joining the cast of the Man of Steel sequel (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) understandably dredged up the curiosity of fans wondering who the venerable Hunter might be playing in the comic book movie. One website thinks it has the answer, and if they’re right, then it’s an intriguing bit of detail from Batman lore for the filmmakers to include. Who are we talking about? Well, keeping in mind it’s only a rumor, read on to learn the answer. (more…)

The (Sort of) Story Behind ‘Winter Soldier’s ‘Pulp FIction’ Reference

- 04-08-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

slj_pulpfiction

In-jokes are all the rage these days, a fun way to acknowledge that your cast has a life outside the movie you are presently seeing them in, and probably few actors lend themselves to the in-joke better than Samuel L. Jackson. The actor has had roles big and small in a great many of the most iconic movies of the last 20 years, but perhaps none are more known, or quotable, than Pulp Fiction. It would not be out of the question to say that the Quentin Tarantino movie made Jackson a star, and it did so with one monologue in particular. Jackson’s new movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, paid tribute to it one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, and the film’s directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, recently explained how and why they decided to do it. Spoilers follow. (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Lost Girl’ #4.13 – “Dark Horse”

- 04-08-14reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

lostgirl4

As the fourth season of Lost Girl comes to a close, we try to unravel once and for all who’s who, what’s what and how it all fits together. As I’ve noted, the last couple of episodes there’s a lot of loose ends to tie up, and a lot of them don’t tie so easily together, so it will be interesting to see how the show handles them. Whether its Bo’s father the ancient evil, or the druid with severe to excessive mommy issues, let’s just say there’s a lot at stake for just one episode of Lost Girl. (more…)

Agents of C.H.A.N.G.E.: What Will Happen on ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Post-’Winter Soldier’

- 04-07-14Comics, Featured, Film, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. went from the show everyone couldn’t wait to love, to one of the most disappointing endeavours in the history of television. Indeed, instant reaction to the show was so dire that Screen Rant published an article about how the series could be improved within days of the airing of the premiere episode. Of course, no one’s saying that the show is, or was, perfect, but one thing’s for sure, the fallout from Captain America: The Winter Soldier is surely going to change what it means to be an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. from here on out. Obviously, major spoilers are below. (more…)
