Jason McAnelly

  • Profile: Jason is perhaps best known to everyone as “that one guy who did that thing,” but few people know of his struggles in life. After making a name for himself training zombies to make pasta, he wandered the earth in search of the sacred cheese. Though the cheese eluded him, he discovered a talent for writing and has been working on perfecting his skills ever since. He is currently working on a fantasy novel and tapping keys for the folks at NerdBastards. Eventually, he will be rich and famous and way cooler than you.

rogue one cast

There’s a tendency out there in Internet Land to panic whenever something appears to be going wrong. What’s worse, plenty of people have little-to-no idea how a movie is put together and so when they hear a word like “reshoots”, they freak the hell out. So is the case with the next flick from the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. To be fair, when some movies go back for reshoots, it’s because the execs have no faith the movie will stand on its own given its current incarnation. With Rogue One, however, both director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm guru Kathleen Kennedy are stepping up to reassure the fans that it’s no big deal. (more…)

This time around, the recycling machine has spit out 1974’s Death Wish. The remake has already secured one of Hollywood’s biggest actors for the lead role and now it looks like they have their new directorEli Roth. (more…)

It’s been a while since the first Shrek movie came to the big screen and dazzled audiences with its charm and genuinely clever sense of humor. It’s been 15 years, in fact. Another Shrek dropped in 2004 and had an equally good reception. Then the downhill spiral began with Shrek the Third (2007) and Shrek Forever After (2010). Now, the new holders of DreamWorks Animation hope to bring the big, green bastard back. Scroll on to learn the how and why of it. (more…)

The arrival of the Ghostbusters reboot is just a little over a month away. So far we’ve seen the trailers, we’ve hated the trailers, the powers-that-be tried to fix the trailers and we continued to be dubious of the quality of this reboot/remake. Now, with the date fast approaching, it’s time for some television adverts. Check out the four TV spots for the 2016 Ghostbusters below. (more…)

Love it or hate it, the folks at Warner Bros. have decided that there is no way in hell they’ll be mixing the television incarnation of the DC Universe with the big-screen version of it. Even though plenty of folks out there would love to see Grant Gustin donning the tights of The Flash or Stephen Amell making an appearance as The Green Arrow, it just ain’t happening. Funny thing is, Amell has recently commented on who he would play if he did get a chance to join up with the cinematic DCU, given his exemption from playing his most well-known role. Scroll on to find out the answer to this riddle. (more…)

Those who have followed the King Kong franchise over the years know that filmmakers have had a rough ride trying to (re)make the giant ape interesting enough to both attract moviegoers and please critics alike. But there’s a solution to this problem and it’s now right in our faces – Turn King Kong into an interactive world. Universal Studios, Orlando has done just that with Skull Island: Reign of Kong. And now, finally, this part of the park is getting ready to open to the public. (more…)

Deadpool was many things. It was funny, crude, action-packed, bloody, perverted, bloody perverted and, of course, it was dead fucking sexy. But what some people may have missed is that Deadpool also had a rich, gooey middle, filled with enough love and romance to rival even the mushiest of chick-flicks. Now, with the release of the movie on DVD and Blu-ray, it appears as if the REAL story of Deadpool is being appreciated by all. In fact, the merc with a mouth is ranking in as Amazon’s #1 romantic seller. (more…)

Last week on Gotham, things were coming to a head. Bruce and Lucius had been kidnapped by Hugo Strange and left at the mercy of Edward Nygma. Selina was setting herself up as Firefly’s sidekick. Fish Mooney was brought back from the dead and filled with the power to make people obey her. And Hugo Strange was evacuating his experiments and getting ready to blow Arkham Asylum sky-high. This week is the season finale, so the writers have to wrap all that up in a nice, neat package. But did ‘Transference’ deliver? Not as well as it could have, that’s for sure. Read on for more.

Well, it’s finally here. Preacher has been in the works, for good or for evil, for a while now and tonight we had the opportunity, courtesy of AMC, to see the first episode. I was, like many others, pretty damned skeptical about this one. I loved the Preacher books back when I read them (many years ago) and I didn’t want to see them turn Garth Ennis’s work into a piece of shit only fit to flushed down the toiler and forgotten about. After sitting through the hour-long ‘Pilot‘, however, I feel I may be soon changing my tune. Preacher turned out to be highly entertaining, despite all the obvious changes to the storyline. Scroll on for a short recap and review.
