The trailer for Altered Carbon: Resleeved dropped yesterday–continuing the adventures of Takeshi Kovacs–and it looked pretty good though if I were to have a criticism it would have to be the animation. It’s almost what I’d call an in-house style at Netflix–most of their anime is done in this fashion–and it’s great as far as […]
The second trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate dropped a few hours ago, and it’s…underwhelming. The visuals look good, but are by no means exceptional. And there’s also way too much CGI, which was not the case with the first two movies, coincidentally the only two movies in the series that were accepted by both critics […]
These days as a mover goer I know full well that practical effects combined with CGI can create virtually any type of effect imaginable. Though what I find infinitely more interesting is when a movie’s special effects are so seamless that I don’t know that what I happen to be looking at is a special […]
While I’m cobbling together a review for Captain America: Civil War–which won’t probably be ready before Saturday–I figured that I might as well write up something for Zoombies, which turned recently up on Netflix. Despite the title they’re no zombies present–of either the human or animal variety (though you probably noticed the extra ‘o’ in the title, which isn’t […]
I meant to post the latest Gods Of Egypt trailer yesterday. I didn’t because I haven’t gotten around to changing my iMac’s hard drive–I don’t own any Torx screwdrivers, though I intend to remedy that over the weekend. As a result this is my first post made entirely on an iPad. From images […]
I’ll readily admit that when I learned that Warner Bros. was making a movie based on Tarzan, I seriously wondered if Kevin Tsujihara was a bit out of his mind. After all, Tarzan has turned up numerous times–which leads me to believe that the character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs is in the public domain–but […]
With John Carpenter’s 1982 movie The Thing–based on Christian Nyby’s 1951 movie The Thing From Another World and the original John Campbell short novel, Who Goes There?–we got to see a director at the peak of his powers.
…the CGI is looking particularly gamey, as in video gamey.
I am genuinely psyched for movies like Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice but what I am even more interested in is something that we won’t be seeing on the big screen, and that’s Gerry Anderson’s Firestorm. Originally sold by creators Anderson and John Needham to a Japanese company, it was […]
“An Auspicious Beginning For Marvel’s Un-Caped Crusader.” When I was growing up, comics not only taught me how to read, but they inspired me to action; I remember vividly running about New York City, trekking through Central Park like Cortez or exploring abandoned buildings with my not-so-super friends. And I would read–though perhaps devour is a […]
