Though the two-part Avengers: Infinity War was announced only recently, those of us who recognized that ugly purple face in the first post-credits scene of Joss Whedon‘s Avengers have known it was coming. The seeds for Infinity War were planted early, and clearly Marvel isn’t done yet. Only three of the six legendary Infinity Stones have been revealed, while Thanos has appeared briefly in two Marvel Studios movies, he has yet to take a more active role, and we have a whole bunch of movies scheduled between Avengers: Age of Ultron and its 2018 sequel Avengers: Infinity War, Part I.

TV REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ S3E7 – “Draw Back Your Bow”

- 11-20-14Comics, Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 9.10.42 AM

It’s the same old story: boy meets girl, boy saves girl from super-powered bad guy, girl falls in love with boy, girl becomes a trained archer and kills people to impress boy, boy and his friends try to stop here. This week’s Arrow was all about matters of the heart, and apropos, the bad guy was a woman named Carrie Cutter, AKA: Cupid. Obsession is nothing new for superheroes and their rogues, one might say that The Joker is obsessed with Batman for example, but I’m not quite sure if “Draw Back Your Bow” plays as a superhero Lifetime Movie of the Week, or Fatal Attraction with costumes. Either way it was a big week for our heroes and their romantic issues. (more…)

‘Prometheus’ Sequel Will Introduce Entirely New Extraterrestrial

- 11-19-14Film Posted by Derek Robertson

 

Promethues

Prometheus was an adequate enough introduction back into Ridley Scott‘s Alien universe. A lot of questions were left unanswered, but that is part of the beauty of the Science Fiction genre; a sense of mystery, room to theorize, to talk with others and debate and learn in a reciprocal manner. It’s not any secret that Ridley Scott is a Sci-Fi auteur; master of his craft. He creates movies that have individuals’ thinking for themselves and developing their own interpretations (Blade Runner and whether Deckard is a replicant or not anyone?).  With Prometheus, it seems one of the main problems that irked some of the fans was the fact the movie wasn’t a direct prequel to the Alien series as was originally planned. Some were annoyed that Damon Lindelof had been called in to tinker with the script (which makes one wonder how Lindelof haters feel about Green Lantern‘ scriber Michael Green penning the sequel) . The fact it is set in the same universe should have been enough to suffice no? Apparently not! Apparently people wanted more of the same. Well, word on the street is that Ridley Scott has been dishing some dirt on his plans for the highly anticipated sequel. (more…)

With Netflix‘s first Marvel Studios series, Daredevil, chugging along like a well-oiled machine in principal photography, it’s interesting to note that we’ve heard rather little about the other three series in development. Along with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Jessica Jones is being developed as a series by Twilight screenwriter (she wrote for Dexter too! Don’t hold it against her) Melissa Rosenberg. It seems that Jessica Jones will be next series to go before the cameras, and according to one source, the casting contest as to who will play the superhero-turned-private eye is down to one of four actresses. So who are these fantastic four actresses who are rumored to be the contenders to play Jessica? Let’s take a look, and proctor the possibilities of their casting. (more…)

Guardians Of The Galaxy Gag-Reel Is A Must Watch

- 11-19-14Comics, Cool Stuff, Film Posted by Derek Robertson

Guardians of the Galaxy

Yesterday we were treated to a Guardians of the Galaxy dance-off clip between Star-Lord and Ronan The Accuser, which was to decide the fate of the world ( …this could have worked as an alternate ending, no?). That scene was basically a set-up for Dave Batista (Drax the Destroyer) according to James Gunn. You can see how he is caught off guard as he starts to express a confused – ‘what-the-hell-is-going-on’– type grin. Not only is this a wonderful clip, but it also invites us – the viewers – to vicariously feed off of the good vibes they obviously had whilst filming the movie. The chemistry is great in the film, and this must of been one of the many elements, that when mixed together, produced a gem of a film. You can view the clip again here, …and “Dance-off”  (more…)

TV Review: ‘The Flash’ – S1E6 – “The Flash Is Born”

- 11-19-14Comics, reviews, TV Posted by Rush Urbalejo

Flash Feature

Reviewing every episode of The Flash’s freshman season is a unique opportunity.  Not only do I get to watch one of my favorite television shows and write about it, then call it “work”, but it forces me to remain completely objective about the quality of the series rather than just getting lazy and taking the ride.  For the most part, this objectivity leads me to find flaws in episodes that others may not notice or that they may just accept without a second thought.  For episodes that have several flaws, this objectivity can make my viewing experience less than completely enjoyable (I generally watch an episode twice – once as a critic, once as a fan), but for episodes like last night’s episode, The Flash is Born, watching the episode through the eyes of a critic really drives home the fact that The Flash is really one of the best shows on television right now and one of the best superhero series’ that we have ever been offered.  Warning – spoilers ahead.

Cinderella-2015-5

It didn’t take long for Disney to follow-up their live action Cinderella teaser the other day with the full trailer.

How do you think this will do at the box office? (more…)
