Is there anything scarier then five bloggers talking about scary movies and nugget covered candy apples? Of course there isn’t.
Welcome to The BastardCast Halloween Outhouse of Horrors episode!
On the show we’ve got Brad McHargue from Dread Central, Chris Cummins from Topless Robot/Geekadelphia/HibernationSickness.com, Matthew Jackson from Blastr, and your hosts, Jeremy R! Hudson and Jason Tabrys! (more…)
This time on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy board the Botany Bay and find Matt Jackson, naked, alone, and full of evil intent. Together, they crash the serene quiet of the cosmos with a ghetto blaster, a crappy but lovable star cruiser, and a mission to punch at the heart of this week’s nerdy news with acid wits and embarrassing bitch tits.
WHAT WE TALKIN BOUT BRUCE WILLIS? We talkin bout nananana Batman! Is Wonder Woman going to crash DC’s upcoming spandex sausage fest and will anyone care about a Batman-less Jim Gordon/Gotham City TV show? We’re also talking about the upcoming Constantine TV show, and whether DC is building it’s own wide universe on the small screen.
More Batman? But of course, we’ve got EXCLUSIVE and surprising audio from casting sessions all throughout Batman’s long on-screen history. Eion Bailey ain’t got shit on the Godfather in spandex!
Alright, maybe you’re an acolyte of Marvel. Part of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. For you, we have our views on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and later, we discuss Avengers 2: Age of Ultron in TRAILERGASM (and also Need for Speed, bitch!)
We also realize that the name Michael Jordan is somewhat common, that Alan Moore is not a clown (sorry, Grant), why Dumb and Dumber makes us sad now, the Firefly comic, our Halloween plans, and what the world’s worst rap battle looks like.All that and MOAR (We’re contractually obligated to spell more like that. Please help.)
Leonardo DiCaprio‘s production company Appian Way is teaming with Warner Bros to take us all back to The Island Of Dr. Moreau.The production has hired writers Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy ( Hemlock Grove writers) to update the classic H.G. Wells novel into a combination of Sci-Fi and ecological science and conservatism.
Now the first thing that is going to pop into everyone’s head is Marlon Brando’s 1996 remake, which should immediately ring warning bells. That movie was a train wreck. Who could forget mini-brando? Brando and Val Kilmer were reported as hating each other vehemently and the production was caught between the two super egos.
I’m right there with anyone gathering Internet torches and pitchforks if the plan is to crank out another turd fest like that 1996 version, but for those of you lucky enough to have caught the Burt Lancaster and Micheal York 1977 version on some lazy Sunday afternoon, you know what The Island of Dr. Moreaucould be with today’s technology and effects.
Here’s the 1977 version’s trailer, just to give you a taste.
I’ll be completely honest, I am still lukewarm on Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, The Man of Steel. Oh sure I have bitched and moaned endlessly about the lack red undies on the outside since we first saw the new look Superman. However when we first heard about (or saw if you were at SDCC) the footage, it did sound pretty sweet. Well, after a couple of bootlegs (shame Internet, shame) and a totally legal fully official look at the first trailer.
Ok, don’t get me wrong. It looks action packed and fun (unlike a certain other Superman movie, that one where he returned.) It just seems like it’s missing something. Something iconic. This is where the fine folk at ITHoTMKProductions come in. They have recut the trailer to include not only Marlon Brando‘s Jor El voice over but also John Williams legendary Superman theme music.
Hit the jump, watch it for yourself and tell me you don’t feel a slight tingle when those all too familiar cords ring through the speakers. (more…)
