The Evil Dead series, both in the cinematic and television forms, has a marvelously delirious history. An original film financed on a shoestring budget that plays its horror-centric tone mostly straight but with a few chuckle inducing moments, a sequel that is in essence a remake of the original and was originally supposed to follow the plot of the third film, said third film that goes off in a completely different direction, and now a TV series, 22 years later, that makes no reference to the third installment for legal reasons, therefore technically continuing the story of the first film but unquestionably borrowing the slapstick, overly comedic identity of the third movie. Few popular franchises can claim to having a developmental history has complicated and hard fought as Evil Dead, although one would struggle to consider that a virtue. »

Ash Vs Evil Dead season one reaches the halfway point, and this rollicking, fun show is as exciting and entertaining as ever...
This review contains spoilers.
One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about Ash Vs Evil Dead is how serialised it all is. You could quite easily imagine sitting down to binge the season when it’s done and basically watching it like one very long Evil Dead film, maybe removing the credits as you do. The episodes generally flow seamlessly into each other, and it makes for a nice sense of momentum as our heroes barrel from one scrape to the next, all organically coming from the previous misadventure.
This week we kicked off with Fisher’s rescue at the hands of Ruby. The reveal of her true connection to Ash and by extension the original movies was an interesting, if not earth-shattering revelation, »
"The demon is taunting us by slowly and painfully killing the host." Ash has faced his fair share of misery over the years, but in the next episode of Starz's Ash vs Evil Dead, he could suffer his most stressful situation yet, as teased in a new clip and preview video.
Ep 105 – The Host: "Kelly’s current state puts others in jeopardy. This forces Pablo to make a brave move and Ash to reveal a new side to his character. Ruby and Fisher join forces in pursuit of Ash."
Directed by David Frazee, "The Host" airs Saturday, November 28th at 9:00pm Est on Starz.
"The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers, and Craig Digregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner. “Ash vs Evil Dead,” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead. »

Read on and start making a schedule! Batman Begins Netflix just added some great superhero content this past weekend with the arrival of the new Marvel Studios series Jessica Jones, but sadly the streaming service will soon be losing one of the best comic book movies ever made.

Boffins reckon that at any one time there nearly 35,000 hours of content waiting to be watched on Netflix.
Great if you’ve got three years to watch it all but if not then picking something worth your time is like trying to find an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardhasians that you can bare to sit through.
Luckily, each week you’ll find a list of recommendations to help you cut straight to the chase, from the most-talked about movies and TV shows, plus the kind of documentaries that’ll have you updating your Facebook status about.
This week Netflix throws up some classic characters from the Marvel universe, a forgotten love triangle from the guy behind The Breakfast Club and a real-life story that’s so gritty it’ll make your toes curl up while the hairs on the top of your toes stand on end. »

According to JoBlo, Warner Bros. Pictures have a short list of possible frontrunners to helm the Guillermo del Toro-scripted "Justice League Dark" film adaptation. Del Toro wrote the recent screenplay with the desire to direct but decided to step down due to his commitment to helm "Pacific Rim 2: Maelstrom", which is set up with Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures.
JoBlo revealed that the directing team of Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado and Fede Alvarez are in contention for the job. Keshales and Papushado are known in the horror genre for "Big Bad Wolves", "Rabies" and the anthology film "ABCs of Death 2." Alvarez directed 2013's "Evil Dead" remake, which was produced by original director Sam Raimi. Alvarez is currently in post-production on his latest film, "A Man in the Dark".
Latino-Review recently revealed the list of actors that Warner Bros. would like to cast in the film which includes »

A fresh clip and preview video tease the hellish road trip in this Saturday's episode of Ash vs Evil Dead.
In addition to the new clip and preview video, a behind-the-scenes featurette looks into the practical effects approach to creating the Deadites on Starz's Ash vs Evil Dead series.

Tie-in video games are nothing new in the moviemaking or televisual world. Through these spin-off products, we can play out adventures featuring our favourite characters without having to leave the house.
Most of the time, though, said characters don’t sound quite right. For financial reasons, you’ll often see a different voice cast step in to replace the overly expensive stars from the original film or TV version. Admittedly, these stand-ins do a very good job from time to time. But you can always tell the difference.
Sometimes, though, providing a rare treat for fans, actors can be convinced – by money, passion or a good script - to reprise their iconic film or TV characters once more for a video game adventure. Here are 32 games that featured instances of this incredibly fun phenomenon… »

First up, Stone has closed a deal to play tennis pro Billie Jean King in Fox Searchlight's "Battle of the Sexes" opposite Steve Carell as Bobby Riggs. Stone has been linked for some time but scheduling difficulties put that in doubt, now that has been sorted out.
The film deals with the infamous 1973 tennis match between 29-year-old King beat 55-year-old retired former Wimbledon champion Riggs after he essentially bragged that women could never compete at the level of men in tennis.
Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris ("Little Miss Sunshine") will direct from a script by Simon Beaufoy, while Danny Boyle and Christian Colson are producing. This is not to be confused with two other projects in the works about the match, one with Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti at HBO, »

Ever since the box office and critical success of David O. Russell's adaptation of Matthew Quick's "Silver Linings Playbook," Hollywood has been eager to bring more of the author's work to the big screen. Channing Tatum wants to make his directorial debut with "Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock," Brie Larson signed on for "The Good Luck Of Right Now" (though there hasn't been much word on that project in a while), at one point, Sam Raimi lined up "Love May Fail." Well, Raimi is no longer involved with the latter, but the project has just landed a big name. Emma Stone will star in the movie, which has a screenplay by Mike White (who penned the adaptation of "The Good Luck Of Right Now," so clearly he clicks with Quick's material). The story focuses on a recently divorced woman who returns to her hometown to clear the name of her English teacher. »

Ash Vs Evil Dead is proving to be a fun, engaging, gripping series that promises to get even better as it goes on...
This review contains spoilers.
1.3 Books From Beyond
Coming in to Ash Vs Evil Dead, I was careful to manage expectations. After all, as great as the original films are, there was little evidence that their style would work in the sustained narrative of a television show. Plotting was never really the strong suit of the films and plotting is essential to good television. That said, the joy of seeing Bruce Campbell returning to Ash was enough for me to ignore any reservations I had going in. Luckily though, as of its third episode, Ash Vs Evil Dead is proving itself to be a fun, engaging and gripping series with promise to get even better as it goes.
There’s an excellent grasp on pace »
After a brief hiatus the Sound On Sight podcast is back, with a slightly new format that reflects the wider variety of subject matter to be found here on PopOptiq. This week in our first segment, “What’s in the Box?”, we are joined by one of our resident TV critics, Chris Evangelista, to offer our take on the new Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead. Twenty-two years after Army of Darkness, Bruce Campbell resumes his role as the chainsaw-wielding Ash from Sam Raimi’s cult favorite Evil Dead films, and we discuss how this new show fits with those, both in tone and (if even possible) canon. For our main segment it’s back to movies with a review of Spectre, the 24th entry (or 26th, depending on how you count) in the long-running James Bond series. Our guest, former host and Bond aficionado Edgar Chaput, tries to convince »

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 1, Episode 3, “Books from Beyond”
Written by Sean Clements
Directed by Michael J. Bassett
Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on Starz
“Bait”, the second episode of Ash vs Evil Dead, was an exciting course correction for the series after a disappointing premiere. But declaring Ash vs Evil Dead a success based on that episode might have been premature. This week’s episode, “Books from Beyond”, is a quick, weightless oddity that tries to pack a bunch of elements into a brief 30 minutes, and doesn’t quite succeed. Ash (Bruce Campbell) and his new friends Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) (a group Pablo has now dubbed “The Ghost Beaters”, much to Ash and Kelly’s chagrin) head off to Books from Beyond with hopes of finding something in the Necronomicon to stop the recently unleashed evil forces. The series has been teasing getting to this »

Robert Kojder reviews the third episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead…
The next question on the mind of both longtime Evil Dead fans and newcomers to the series (one week after being granted proof that the show can function properly without Sam Raimi writing or directing), was simply one regarding repetition. For the first two episodes, Ash vs. Evil Dead has had a noticeable blueprint; some traveling and witty dialogue, all punctuated by a gloriously bloody set-piece with a Deadite, all with a few subplots thrown in depicting a police officer and an unknown character of seemingly great knowledge portrayed by Lucy Lawless.
So it comes as a welcome surprise that this third episode entitled “Books from Beyond” (also directed by Michael J. Bassett, whom steered the ship on last week’s episode “Bait”) plays with that formula. This comes by further exploring the lore of both the Necronomicon origins »

The process of excitement for us filmgoers is normally the same. We hear about a film in development that appeals to us, especially if it’s the next entry in a popular franchise, and then we patiently wait for, or perhaps anxiously anticipate all that comes next: director, screenwriter and casting announcements, set photos and promotional artwork, a release date and the highly revered trailer. We think about so many factors leading into a film’s production, exponentially raising our level of enthusiasm for something that has yet to be released. One thing we don’t think about as much as we should, however, is how much the film costs to make.
We know that movies aren’t cheap for the studios, but perhaps we don’t think about total cost as much because things like trailers, or prior knowledge of a franchise, give us something of an approximation that will tell us, »
