Tune In to the ‘Star Wars’ Halloween Special… On ESPN2?

Some of us have experienced the horror that is the 1978 Star Wars Christmas Special. Steeped in the idea that no one but small children and people with mental disabilities watched Star Wars, Lucas and Co. created a Rifftrax-worthy piece of rubbish that featured everything from new age music to Wookies in aprons making “Christmas” dinner. Suffice to say, it’s painful to watch whether you’re a fan of the franchise or otherwise. Now, we’re getting a Halloween Special. And this one will be… sports themed. (more…)

TV REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ S3,E4 – “The Magician”

And you thought Captain Cold appearing on The Flash last night was a huge deal. Tonight’s Arrow follows up last week’s adventure in Corto Matese, and while that one was notable for bringing Thea back into the fold, this week’s entry, “The Magician,” is notable for so much, much more. From important returns, to important reunions to important introductions, if you missed this week’s episode of Arrow (like Felicity, who was too busy teaching team work and smooching in Central City this week), then you picked a less than ideal time to drop out for the week. “The Magician” seems to set up this season’s battle lines, or to put it another way, the show is courting war.

My god, what a great time to be a geek!  Between Marvel and DC, comic book adaptations that many of us have been waiting for since we were children are finally being made reality, and considering DC’s recently released slate of upcoming movies and the epic Marvel announcements yesterday, things don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.  Hot on the heels of their announcements and the release of their bonus clip from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Marvel  (no doubt feeling drunk with power and fandom glory), has released the first teaser for their newest television series, Agent Carter.  If the teaser is a true preview of things to come, oh man, sign me up!

Who Is The Black Panther And Why Is He Important?

Marvel Entertainment’s little surprise party yesterday was one for the books. They came, they saw, they kicked our asses with nukes of revelations on their planned projects. We’re getting a Captain Marvel movie. ‘Captain America 3′ was announced, as was ‘Thor 3.’ There were stutters about a Hulk feature and a Black Widow flick was completely shot down. Marvel bigwig Kevin Feige and friends were very up front with us, and surprisingly listened to our feedback. My favorite part was the declaration of a Black Panther film. This guy has always been one of my top heroes, and I couldn’t be happier hearing that ’42’ and ‘Get On Up’ star Chad Boseman was nabbed for the role. I called it awhile back, actually. Which is a further testament to my unmatched manliness and vast intelligence. But enough facts about me – let’s talk Black Panther, shall we? (more…)

A New Look At and Details About ‘Terminator: Genisys’

I hate to say this, but this new information about Terminator: Genisys actually has me intrigued. I know! I’m so gullible. Anyway, we’re starting to get some legitimate plot details about the next phase in the Terminator franchise, Genisys, which comes out next summer and, if all goes according to plan, it will be the first in a new trilogy of Terminator films. A lot has remained unknown about the film, including where in the Terminator timeline the movie will fit, and what role Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s paradoxically Old Terminator will have in it, but this new information from a very reliable source makes me wonder if that Terminator resurgence just might be in the cards after all. Or, you know, gullible. (more…)

Ready to Scream Like It’s 1996? MTV’s ‘Scream’ Series Is Finally Coming Soon!

- 10-29-14Film, TV Posted by Rush Urbalejo

Back in the 90’s, slasher flicks came back in a big way and the Kevin Williamson/Wes Craven masterpiece of fun, Scream, paved the way for the return of the genre.  The movie was brilliant in that it was almost a poke in the eye to the genre while also becoming one of the best slasher films in years.  As with anything in Hollywood, the movie generated sequels that could never quite live up to the original, though they were all fun in their own right.  In 2012, MTV ordered a pilot for a small screen adaptation of the highly successful horror staple but there has been very little talk about the project since.  Now, 2 years after the initial order, it appears that the Scream television series is finally making some headway and it has been announced that fans will finally see what the series will give them when it debuts in the Fall of 2015.
