So That ‘Poltergeist’ Remake Is A Family Friendly Adventure, Huh?

A reboot of the Hooper Directed/Spielberg Produced 1982 horror Poltergeist is scheduled to arrive in theaters this summer.  Children of the 1980s have mixed feelings, and with good reason.  Poltergeist played on our biggest fear, that something evil would crawl through our televisions and drag us to a hell dimension.  These days that process is called “streaming content”, clearly the work of a demonic entity thus confirming our suspicions.  But perhaps nerds everywhere should warm up to this Sam Raimi produced reboot.  Recently actor Sam Rockwell, who portrays the father in the story, sat down with Collider to quell our fears, and encourage us to see the film in a different light…(Carol Anne): (more…)

It’s been a packed couple of days of Arrow news as the beloved CW superhero series was renewed for a fourth season and interest was expressed in a second spin-off from the show. But on to more practical concerns, like what’s coming up in the second half of the season and where fate might take the ragtag group of heroes and villains that populate Starling City. During the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, the CW hosted mega-panel of the costumed vigilantes, allies and agitators, from which we got some insight into what’s ahead on Arrow given the peculiar circumstances that the show left its titular hero in just before the Christmas break. Warning, spoilers be ahead. (more…)

Like Our Hope For The Project, Luke Evans Has Abandoned The Crow

The Crow 3

I remember the day that I bought my first issue of The Crow.  It was the summer of my freshman year of high school and I (decked out in the usual goth garb) was headed to the now extinct Atomic Comics in Phoenix to grab an issue of The Vampire Lestat comic book.  As I went up to the counter with my copy of Lestat, the clerk asked if I had ever read The Crow, to which I responded “nope”.  The clerk directed me to the first issue and I never looked back.  When the movie adaptation starring Brandon Lee hit theaters in 1994, I was there on opening night and already knew the soundtrack by heart.  While it was a world away from the comic book series, the movie was special in its own right and had a generation of goths supporting our own superhero while mourning the man that died while portraying Eric Draven on screen.  Fast forward about 20 years and talks of a reboot have been making the rounds for years but each time it comes close to fruition, some other stumbling block stops any progress.  Well, yet another road block, this one if the form of Luke Evans, has just halted the reboot project yet again.

The Team-Up You Didn’t Know You Have Been Waiting For: Hulk Hogan To Join Scooby-Doo

Like many people, Scooby-Doo has been a part of my life ever since I can remember.  When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get home after school to watch my favorite Scooby-Doo reruns, or for Saturday mornings to watch A Pup Named Scooby-Doo back when it was a brand new series and Saturday morning cartoons were king.  I loved all of the incarnations of the series but my favorite was The New Scooby-Doo Movies.  Every episode featured a guest star and watching my favorite superhero, Batman, working a case with my favorite teenaged sleuths (I wouldn’t discover The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew until a little later) was one of the most exciting things in my young life.  Those days are long gone but thanks to a new animated feature that will throw wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in the mix with the Mystery, Inc. crew, perhaps fans can relive a bit of the glory days.

That ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ Remake Is Finally Finished After 33 Years

- 11-14-14Uncategorized Posted by Aspry Jones

use this first

Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb were just 10 and 11 years-old when they started shooting this thing. I halfway remember it being in the news a little bit, but completely forgot about it because life. They borrowed props, said goodbye to lunch money, and recruited friends to help out in their little recreation of Spielberg’s magnum opus, ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark.’ ‘Raiders’ is one of the most amazing movies ever made and was probably a catalyst that sparked my epic nerdity. That’s what makes me kinda jealous of these guys. I’d have loved to have gotten together with my boys and remade an incredible film, but my friends suck and don’t do cool things. So, basically here’s a story about guys I wish I was friends with. (more…)

When James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy hit theater screens it didn’t take long for fans to wonder where the hell their Dancing baby Groot toy was. In fact, many couldn’t, and wouldn’t wait so they went ahead and made their own. It seemed like such a no brainer, the Internet exploded when dancing Groot clips started to hit, but why no official toy? Now James Gunn has spilled the beans on No-Dancing-Baby-Groot-Gate. (more…)

‘Thor’ Co-Writer Promises There Will Be Blood in ‘Ragnarok’

When it was announced that the third Thor movie, which will be in a theater near you in the summer of 2017, was going to be subtitled Ragnarok, there were a lot of questions about the full meaning of the word in the context of the Thunder God’s next solo adventure. “Ragnarok” literally means “the final destiny of the gods,” which can be taken any number of ways, but that word “final” has some very specific implications. So we’re forced to wonder, is Ragnarok going to be a blood bath? Will it be, in effect, the final Thor solo adventure? We can’t answer that last question, but one of the co-writer’s is definitely pointing to an affirmative on that first question. (more…)

‘The Crow’ Will Not Be A Direct Remake – Goths Across The Globe Sigh With Relief

“Remake” is the name for catastrophe on the lips and hearts of all fanboys.  The hate of remakes, reboots, reimaginings, etc., that most fanboys feel is almost palpable when the words are brought up in geeky company.  Many of us have our ideas of just what a property should look like, especially when it is a comic book or nostalgic  property, and trying to change our ideas of what those properties should look like is almost as impossible as finding that perfect cosplay the night before a comic convention when you only have $5 in your pocket.  One of the remakes that has drawn constant ire ever since the rumors of a reboot first started up a couple of years back is James O’Barr’s gothic classic, The Crow.  For many people, remaking 1994’s The Crow is about as sacrilegious as having Mel Gibson rewrite the bible then calling it gospel.  Well, if the man behind The Crow, O’Barr, is to be believed, some of Eric Draven’s most zealous fans can relax a bit, because the reboot will not be a remake of the 1994 film, which famously starred Brandon Lee.  So, what will fans be getting?

Here’s a fun fact. If you fully spell out Robert Downey Junior‘s name, the only vowel in the English alphabet missing is an “A”. You know, A-E-I-O-U-&-Sometimes-Y. Now word is making the Internet rounds that someone at Marvel felt that obvious hole in Robert Downey Jr’s life needed to be filled. Filled with that 30 foot tall Avengers “A” in the movie, the one pictured above. (more…)
