Wizard World Portland Comic Con 2017 Review

1 hour ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Wizard World Comic Con visited Portland, Oregon last weekend and they provided me an opportunity to attend. The experience had it’s good points and it’s bad which I will get into.

Batman-Kevin Conroy

To start, it was much smaller an affair than I anticipated. I think back to Rose City Comic Con back in September, which utilized the entire Oregon Convention Center with the main hall and numerous meeting rooms for the various panels. Wizard World used the main hall as well as two sets of meeting rooms which made the event feel smaller. That’s not a bad thing in and of itself, just an observation.

The line to get into the convention hall was long. The biggest problem I had with it was that the Wizard World staff utilized only one set of doors for the entrance. Everyone had to be scanned with a »

Is April 2017 Promising To Be One of TV’s Greatest Ever Months?

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yes. That’s the short answer to the question posed above, but if you would like some form of explanation then please, do keep reading.

TV has frustrated me endlessly in recent years. 2016 saw a downward trend as it pertained to the medium’s quality. The golden age had ended, led by the utter mediocrity of AMC, and the tide of entertainment that had crushed film under its weight was starting to recede. There were bright spots of course; Stranger Things was impossible not to like, Westworld was fascinating, and returning shows like Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, and Bloodline continued to be series of sublime quality.

2017 has started off infinitely stronger than last year with regards to new series. Legion is a visually grand and downright scary affair, Santa Clarita Diet scratches an itch for those wanting a Weeds/Dexter mash up (though that may be a house »

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Featurette: Elisabeth Moss Explains How There’s Still Hope in the Dystopian Drama

24 February 2017 11:22 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is a bleak look at our possible future, but that doesn’t mean that it lacks faith in the human spirit.

In Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, a plague of infertility has swept the world in the future. In the land of Gilead, roughly where New England is now, a totalitarian regime has overtaken the government and has enslaved the remaining fertile women to become breeders for high-ranking officials.

“It is unquestionably a dark world, but it’s not a dark show,” executive producer Bruce Miller says in the featurette Hulu released on Thursday. “The show is about perspective and not losing the hope of getting your life back.”

A Cure for Wellness review – cult status beckons for mesmeric chiller

23 February 2017 3:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There are shades of Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King in this operatically claustrophobic horror film about a sinister alpine spa

Gore Verbinski’s macabre conspiracy horror A Cure for Wellness is long. Very long. It is two and a half hours long, but you can’t be sure if it isn’t two and a half days, or two and a half months, or if some of the scenes unfolding on screen may in fact be hallucinations you are having privately. Yet there is something eerily mesmeric in it.

The action is set in a creepy Swiss alpine spa where rich people take the waters. In one scene, a male nurse is seen reading Thomas Mann’s Magic Mountain. Maybe he was finished with Ian Fleming’s Thunderball. Dane DeHaan plays Lockhart, an arrogant young Wall Street hotshot tasked by his hatchet-faced superiors with journeying to this very spa and »

Atomic Blonde Poster Has Charlize Theron Ready for Action

22 February 2017 12:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

From director David Leitch and starring Oscar winner Charlize Theron, the breakneck action-thriller Atomic Blonde will debut at the SXSW Film Festival Sunday, March 12 at the Paramount Theater before hitting theaters this summer. To celebrate this big announcement, Focus Features has debuted the new poster for Atomic Blonde, previously known as The Coldest City, which offers our first look at Charlize Theron as this deadly assassin. Hopefully this poster's arrival could signal that the first trailer is coming soon, but the studio hasn't confirmed a trailer debut date at this time.

Atomic Blonde made headlines in late 2015, when David Leitch came aboard to direct this action-thriller by himself. The former stuntman and stunt coordinator made his directorial debut with the 2014 cult classic John Wick, which he co-directed alongside Chad Stahelski, both of whom co-founded the stunt company 87Eleven. The directorial duo decided to part ways for the time being, with »

Stephen King’s Castle Rock gets full season order

22 February 2017 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filming on the pilot hasn’t even begun yet, but Hulu has already ordered a full 10 episode season for the Stephen King and J.J. Abrams anthology series Castle Rock. This comes after positive reception to the recently released teaser trailer.

Castle Rock is the fictional Maine town that many of Stephen Kings stories are set in and the show will “weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.”

This will be the second collaboration between King and Abrams who first developed 11.22.63 together for Hulu, based on King’s novel about a time traveller attempting to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Castle Rock is expected to go into production later this year and will be executive produced and written by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason. »
