Frank Darabont is Walking Dead No Longer

Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption (1994), The Mist (2007) and many others) has been engaged in a lawsuit with AMC Networks for screwing him over on profits on The Walking Dead, which he was the original showrunner, for almost two decades. Seemingly his quest for the monies he believes he’s owed has ended (assuming that […]

Crowning The King of Spies

Remember when Netflix cancelled Jupiter’s Legacy (2021) after a single season? I do because it wasn’t that long ago and I thought that it was a bit premature (though considering the production issues connected to the series – which came out after the fact – I shouldn’t be too surprised) though I didn’t think they’d […]

Is Guillermo Del Toro Moving Away From Genre Movies?

I don’t think it’s hyperbole if one were to say Guillermo Del Toro is among the most renown directors of the fantastic working today. Since his first feature film, 1993’s Chronos, the Mexican auteur has been well represented in the worlds of horror and the uncanny. Then there was 2015’s Crimson Peak, which was a […]

And I didn’t need to track down […]

A ‘Suicidal’ Marketing Strategy

Well, I might have been wrong because according to Superherohype the The Suicide […]

‘Jupiter’s Legacy’ is Over on Netflix

I just learned from The Hollywood Reporter than Netflix has cancelled Jupiter’s Legacy. And while I didn’t like the series as much as I did Travelers (also on Netflix, also cancelled – in my view – prematurely though it at least ran for two years and 34 episodes). The metrics that Netflix use to determine […]

My Two Cents | Is “The Boys” A Children’s Show?

This article contains mild spoilers for the most recent season of Amazon’s The Boys. Recently I finished the Second Season of Amazon’s The Boys, and while I for the most part enjoyed it, I also found it somewhat infantile, which is odd because if you’ve read any of the work of Garth Ennis – the […]
