What happens when you have a woman, with a mysterious need to die and resurrect, cross paths with an eclectic band of individuals with their own unique set of supernatural abilities? The answer is the new paranormal webseries Necrolectric set to release this summer.(more…)
“You think you know the real story of Hercules? Think again.” Unfortunately, that translates into: You thought you were seeing an updated version of the story you know and like. Think Again. From the beginning, the marketing for Hercules had me convinced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would become the son of Zeus. But, as suggested by the narrator, I don’t know this story of Hercules. Based on the Steve Moore short series, Hercules: Volume 1: The Thracian War; this story takes place in Thrace, not Greece. Cotys, the King of Thrace seeks the help of Hercules and his band of merry men. Bandits threaten the land and Thrace’s unqualified army won’t cut it. But, expectantly, not everything in Thrice is as it seems.
Apparently Hercules was a master strategist and proponent of dental hygiene.
Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth) is a professional cynic and a pessimist. Which is why he’s succeeded under the stage name Wei Ling Su, a Chinese magician who has brought his secrets of the Orient to Europe. We find Stanley on tour in Berlin, 1928 when he gets word of a spiritualist in the South of France that could be the real deal. Never passing on a moment publicly shame a swindler, Stanley gleefully heads to France.(more…)
Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) isn’t a bad person. She’s recently made some terrible decisions. We don’t know why she’s partying hard with drug dealers on the streets of Taipei. We don’t know how she met Richard, nor why he’s so jumpy about delivering this briefcase to a man named Kang (CHOI Min-Sik). Kang, a powerful South Korean durg lord, wants the briefcase, now handcuffed to Lucy. It contains a new synthetic drug that could increase the brain function of it’s user. Think of it this way: the drug that Lucy has is the uncut, unprocessed version of what Bradley Cooper took in Limitless. While the average human uses 10% of its brain power; what would be the ramifications of using 20% or even 60% of brain power?

When Jay first met Annie in college, it was sex at first sight. Surely, the love came later; but it was definately about the sex.

Marvel has made headlines the past few days thanks to the major changes that have been announced regarding some of their most iconic superheroes. If you not caught up, then let me bring you up to speed… On Tuesday, it was announced on The View that the Asgardian God of Thunder (known as Thor) would no longer be male, but female. In addition, it was announced yesterday on The Colbert Report that the mantle of Captain America would be taken over by long time Captain America ally, Sam Wilson (aka The Falcon). A change which will see the character of Captain America become a black superhero. Now, comes news today that our favorite playboy billionaire, Tony Stark, will receive a radical change as well!

Though The Purge wasn’t a good movie, the elephant in the room has always been its premise. How would you spent the night where all crime was legal, except for the killing of government official of level 10 rank or higher. Also class 4 and higher caliber weaponry is forbidden. But how would you spend the night? Unfortunately, the first movie focused on a single family, in a single neighbourhood; living in a suburb of Los Angeles. It left me wanting so much more. I had a ton of questions in the end, as the premise had been so intriguing; but almost forgotten when the assailants stormed the home. Such a great movie premise, abandoned to become a run of the mill slasher film.
Back in 2011, writer/director Carl Lindbergh and his company ANOC Productions introduced audiences to a new boogeyman in the form of bunny suit-wearing maniac, BUNNYMAN. Now, flash forward to 2014, the sequel, BUNNYMAN MASSACRE has acquired quite a following (especially on the horror channel known as Chiller) and is currently poised for a DVD release in August. In lieu of the impending DVD release, I caught up with The Bunnyman himself, Joshua Lang, to discuss the sequel and the upcoming third installment (which Lang has recently finished). Check it out!(more…)

Ten years after the great ape rebellion, the Earth has been claimed by the apes. Only pockets of humanity stay, while the apes have established colonies outside of San Francisco. The epicenter of the pandemic that nearly killed the human race (and presumably James Franco) is home to thousands of apes and only a few hundred humans. A map in the prologue explains all of this. Lead by Caesar, a benevolent ruler that is eager to spread his knowledge of the human world; the apes are thriving. A form of sign language is spoken an taught to the young and old alike. It’s been two winters since the last sighting of humans, until a group of explorers, looking for a hydro-electric dam wander through the forest.

Besides the obvious elements that come into play with superhero films, such as the casting or the effects (which are necessary to bring both the character and their abilities to life), folks often overlook another element which is also vital: the music. No matter how grandiose and epic a superhero film is, it is “naked” without a sweeping music score to complement it. Don’t believe me? Then imagine Tim Burton’s BATMANwithout renowned composer’s Danny Elfman’s “Batman Theme” or THE AVENGERSwithout Alan Silvestri “Avengers Theme.” Therefore with all that said it has been confirmed that the “Anatomy of the Superhero” Panel will be making a return appearance at this year’s Comic Con! As was the case last year, the purpose of the panel will be to provide insight on the process of creating a theme, transforming the theme throughout the story line while following the often uphill battle that our heroes travel. Check the details of the panel below…..(more…)

Melissa McCarthy has been on a roll since her 2011 breakthrough performance in ‘Bridesmaids’. In the 5 films since the release of ‘Bridesmaids’, 4 of McCarthy’s movies has grossed over $100 million.

Actor and writer now, McCarthy is slowly building her brand. In ‘Tammy’ McCarthy is up to her old tricks, and unfortunately, her act is getting old.
‘Tammy’ is one of those movies that makes you question your fiscal responsibility.
