Comic Books Actually Exist! And Other Things I’ve Found Out

12 October 2017 1:18 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Author Note: This original editorial was written in 2011, and several of the references are clearly dated, and more than that, in the past six years, my perspective has altered, changed, been tweaked,…, been re-examined (Shrugs) something to that effect- needless to say that this is the article written by a then-still young(er), still unknowing film school undergrad who had a more wide-eyed and bushy-tailed view of the subculture than I do now. My perspective as an outsider was more curious and intriguing at the time, and I think it’s important to have those kinds of initial thoughts documented, as much if not moreso than one’s current more-refined thoughts.  While I will update portions of this article at the bottom of the page, I ask that you keep in mind, the perspective in which it was written, and forgive what are obvious dated references to the time period. »

10 October 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that Linda Cardellini is set to star in The Children, a new horror film from New Line Cinema, which is being produced by James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring).

‘Boogie Nights’ Turns 20! Looking Back on Mark Wahlberg and the Ensemble Cast’s Breakthrough Performances

10 October 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dirk Diggler has great manners.

Every character in Boogie Nights has small details like this that encapsulate everything about them. Some of these qualities, such as Diggler's obsessive politeness whenever he's pulled away from a conversation, are written on the page. Others appear to be specific choices made by actors, like the way Philip Seymour Hoffman's Scotty J. nervously holds his arm during Jack and Dirk's confrontation.

As the film turns 20, Et is reexamining the breakthrough performances in Boogie Nights and Paul Thomas Anderson's showcase of incredible character actors.

Set in the late '70s, Boogie Nights chronicles 17-year-old busboy Eddie Adams’ (Mark Wahlberg) journey as he’s taken under the wing of pornography auteur Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) and into a world where he could finally become the bright shining star he always felt destined to be. Adams quickly transforms into the neon sign dynamite that is Dirk Diggler and takes the industry by storm »

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Gemini (2017)

10 October 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gemini, 2017.

Directed by Aaron Katz.

Starring Lola Kirke, Zoë Kravitz, Greta Lee, Michelle Forbes, Nelson Franklin, Reeve Carney, Jessica Parker Kennedy, James Ransone, Ricki Lake, and John Cho.

Synopsis:

A heinous crime tests the complex relationship between a tenacious personal assistant and her Hollywood starlet boss. As the assistant unravels the mystery, she must confront her own understanding of friendship, truth, and celebrity.

Films set in La tend to be about Hollywood, actors, showbiz, etc. Aaron Katz’s slow-burn mystery Gemini is no exception, however, whilst it is set in the city of the rich and famous, it portrays a completely different side of the industry to one we commonly see on-screen, as seen through the eyes of young Ohio-born Pa Jill (Lola Kirke).

Jill is the assistant to Heather (Zoe Kravitz), a big-name actress hounded by paps and fans alike, who maintains a friendship as well as a professional relationship with her Pa. »

8 October 2017 11:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Weinstein Company’s Movie Operation Was at a Low Point Even Before Scandal

6 October 2017 12:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While Harvey Weinstein’s future is still unclear following recent revelations of sexual misconduct, one thing is clear: the Weinstein Co.’s film division is currently at a very low level of activity.

Financial woes at the company mean that its normally modest film production operation and its previously more active acquisition departments are both operating at their lowest levels in many years.

The studio has three films set to bow in the next year with the Thomas Edison pic “The Current War” opening on Nov. 24, the sequel to “Paddington” bowing on Jan. 12, the Kevin Hart pic “The Upside” on Mar. 9 and the religious pic “Mary Magdalene” get a pre-Easter opening on March 30. Weinstein Co. also has the action pic “Hotel Mumbai” awaiting a release date.

Genre division Dimension Films, run by Harvey’s brother Bob Weinstein, has a handful of pics also set to bow in the next year including “Amityville: the Awakening” (Oct. 28), “Polaroid »

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has long emphasized how much playing Maui in the Disney film “Moana” meant to him as a way to represent his culture, but now fans know for certain that the role represents more than just his regional heritage.

Review: Transformers: The Last Knight

29 September 2017 3:48 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Transformers mythology is an eons-long inter-galactic tale that is rich in its own history. We have the rise of intelligent techno-organic lifeforms, a split between rival points of view, and a struggle for supremacy. All along the way, for reasons that are never spelled out in their history, Earth has been of particular interest to the Autobots and Decepticons.

That much has powered countless comics, animated episodes, and four live-action feature films. Rather than marvel at the wonders of the cosmos or reveal to us why the planet is important, the fifth installment, The Last Knight, retrofit the Knights of the Round Table to an already convoluted and, frankly, boring film series. This film, out now on disc from Paramount Home Entertainment, more or less retreads the first four films, mixing returning humans and Transformers and adding in a few new figures to freshen things, and yet, no one cares. »

Blu-ray Review: Goofy ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ is Worth a Look

27 September 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).

Rating: 3.5/5.0

The two essential things that made the film more tolerable was Anthony Hopkins and Laura Haddock, two Brits who brought some performance parts that made me laugh in their earnestness – Sir Anthony was particularly bizarre. The story is tied into the Arthurian legend, and begins on a knights-of-the-round-table battlefield, and somehow that gave a bit more understanding to what was going on, which was decidedly lacking in previous films. The rest will be pretty familiar to the Transformers’ universe and fan base, »

Vault Comics is one of the biggest stories on the indie comics scene this year. With publisher Damian Wassel and editor-in-chief Adrian Wassel at the helm, Vault has created a line of science fiction and fantasy comics with seasoned veterans like Tim Daniel doing design and art direction as well as books like Fissure and rising stars including David Booher on Powerless and Alien Bounty Hunter (with producer Mark Wahlberg) and Natasha Alterici on Heathen.

This past week I was able to chat with Deniz Camp and Vittorio Astone about their new comic at Vault, Maxwell’s Demons.

Joe: What’s the elevator pitch for Maxwell’s Demons? What’s the hook?

Deniz: Maxwell’s Demons is the story of Maxwell Maas, the greatest mind of his generation. Told in a series of standalone stories, each focused on Max at a different point in his life and arranged non-chronologically, it »
