50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

2 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When we asked our staff to vote on the best comic book movie adaptations, we were afraid the results would consist only of superhero films. While there are many superhero movies listed below, it is great to see a bulk of non-Hollywood films appearing on the list as well. We set out to compile a list of 50 movies but as it were, we ended up with 5 ties, and so the list consists 55 films instead. Let us know if you think we missed something. Enjoy!

55. The Adventures of Tintin

Spielberg’s first venture into animation is one of his best. Taking notes from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Spielberg crafted another spirited, thrilling, and always entertaining adventure. The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most pleasurable, family-friendly experiences, that boils down to one grand treasure hunt. There’s much to admire on-screen, but it is the spectacular »

Review: Alleluia! The Devil’S Carnival

22 August 2015 4:57 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Being a horror fan is usually the easiest way to earn a raised eyebrow from “normal” society, but being a jazz-squaring, belt singing, musical theatre fan in the horror community will almost always send you off to the isolated Island of Misfit Fandom. Luckily, for the proud and passionate citizens of this island, Darren Lynn Bousman is our proverbial king thanks to creating films like Repo! The Genetic Opera, The Devil’S Carnival, and its sequel, Alleluia! The Devil’S Carnival.

Darren Lynn Bousman teams up again with collaborator Terrance Zdunich for the second installment of their dark fantasy/musical world with Alleluia!. Bousman served as director, while Zdunich reprised his role as Lucifer as well as writing the script and lyrics (with the help of co-composer Saar Hendleman).  Set in the same glamorous, colorful, and mystical world, Alleluia! follows a feud between God (Paul Sorvino) and Lucifer, with God »

Wamg Talks Alleluia! The Devil’S Carnival With Chantal Claret And Jimmy Urine

22 August 2015 3:34 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Come one! Come all! Gather around, because the carnival is back… Alleluia! The Devil’S Carnival that is! In celebration of the new film, I spoke with two of the films stars – Chantal Claret and Jimmy Urine. You might know them from their music careers, but I promise you, they steal the show in the carnival! This was a real treat for me, not only as a fan of their music, but as someone lucky enough to call them pals! Check it out as we talk about acting, The Hoff, and get a bit ‘old timey’ with slang!

After triumphant collaborations on 2008’s Repo! The Genetic Opera and 2012’s The Devil’S Carnival: Episode One, cult filmmakers Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich are back with the second installment to their fantasy-musical film franchise. In Alleluia! The Devil’S Carnival, Lucifer sets a plot in motion against Heaven and all hell breaks loose. »

Review: Alleluia! The Devil’S Carnival

21 August 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

One of the best things about the horror genre is its ability to divide audiences and create strong, passionate reactions. We may split on a comedy, sure, because we find different things funny, but chances are we won’t carry that experience with us much past when the end credits roll. Horror is different. Love it or hate it, it sticks with us, and when we see a movie that really speaks to us we connect with it in such way so as to believe the filmmaker has made something that’s just for us.

Few filmmakers embody this ideal more than Darren Lynn Bousman: while his recent output of films might not be for everyone, for the people they are for they are really for. After finding success within the studio system thanks to his trilogy of Saw films and his criminally underrated remake of Mother’s Day, »

Fans of of both Repo: The Genetic Opera and The Devil’S Carnival can belt out high notes of joy, with the announcement of Alleluia!

Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival Will Bring Its Touring Sideshow To The Us And Canada

24 July 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in 2012, Hell came to town in Darren Lynn Bousman’s The Devil’s Carnival. Written by and starring Terrance Zdunich (Repo! The Genetic Opera), this old-school musical journey turned Hell into a three-ring circus, complete with a whole host of sideshow acts and carnie workers who belted out sinful songs of sorrow. Three souls entered looking for redemption, but what they found was more despair – and some catchy tunes!

It wasn’t long after that Bousman teased a return to his wacky carnival, and while it took some time to get things off the ground, we can now confirm his long-gestured sequel will be coming to a town near you! Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival will be premiering in Hollywood at The Egyptian on August 11th, after which it’ll kick off a traveling sideshow extravaganza through the Us and Canada.

Remembering the First and Only Arab World Movie Star Known Around the Globe

Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

Jackson Returns! Two-Time Oscar Winner and Former Labour MP to Star in Zola Adaptation

Glenda Jackson: Actress and former Labour MP. Two-time Oscar winner and former Labour MP Glenda Jackson returns to acting Two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson set aside her acting career after becoming a Labour Party MP in 1992. Four years ago, Jackson, who represented the Greater London constituency of Hampstead and Highgate, announced that she would stand down the 2015 general election – which, somewhat controversially, was won by right-wing prime minister David Cameron's Conservative party.[1] The silver lining: following a two-decade-plus break, Glenda Jackson is returning to acting. Now, Jackson isn't – for the time being – returning to acting in front of the camera. The 79-year-old is to be featured in the Radio 4 series Emile Zola: Blood, Sex and Money, described on their website as a “mash-up” adaptation of 20 Emile Zola novels collectively known as "Les Rougon-Macquart."[2] Part 1 of the three-part Radio 4 series will be broadcast daily during an »

After 25 Years, "Goodfellas" Finally Comes Home For Its Shinebox

19 June 2015 2:59 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

On April 25th, at the Beacon Theatre on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival closed out in a big way with the 4K restoration of Martin Scorsese’s virtuoso crime epic, GoodFellas. Audiences watched wide-eyed as they were treated to a trip down memory lane, revisiting the master director’s explosive entrance to a new decade originally released in 1990, leaving no doubt that he was still at the top of his game and redefining storytelling, genres, and cinema itself. Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) always wanted to be a gangster. Starting in his childhood neighborhood, idolizing the local hoods, led by Paul Sorvino’s “Paulie” Circero. One of the film’s narrative threds is hit early, when Hill recites the mafia’s mantra: “Never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut.” Oh, how far he has to go.

Looking back on the Oscar-winning designs of 'Dick Tracy' 25 years later

14 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Long before the comic book boom of the 21st Century, Hollywood's handling of heroes drawn from the funny pages was a touch and go enterprise. More at home in the serials era of the 40s and 50s, that iconography leaked out onto the big screen in only drips and drabs, a "Superman" here, a "Batman" there. And indeed, a year after Tim Burton brought the latter to unique Gothic heights in 1989, Warren Beatty brought another flesh and blood crime fighter to the big screen with bold expressionistic strokes. Today, "Dick Tracy" stands out as a hand-crafted wonder. Beatty's team was jammed with talent, and it needed to be, for this was an exercise in placing the viewer in a world only slightly familiar. Its extremes — and there were many — were a direct extension of design techniques and flourishes. The film was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, »

The Stuff at 30: An Absorbing Horror Comedy That Challenged 1980s Consumerism

11 June 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On June 14th, prolific cult filmmaker Larry Cohen’s (It’s Alive, Maniac Cop) wonderfully eclectic horror comedy The Stuff will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Released during the heyday of Reaganomics, Cohen’s playful take on modern consumerism explored society’s growing compulsions for fast food and other potentially (or even directly) harmful products that we were all happily consuming without any real knowledge of just what we were putting inside our bodies. It may not be as well-known as some of its genre peers, but The Stuff has always been a favorite of mine, especially considering the amount of ambition and passion Cohen displays onscreen from start to finish.

The Stuff is centered around a mysterious, fluffy food product known only as, well, “The Stuff.” Discovered bubbling up from the grounds in a remote mining area, the highly addictive substance is quickly marketed out as pretty much the greatest »

Review: "Goodfellas" 25Th Anniversary Blu-ray Special Edition

2 May 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

In the humble opinion of this writer, Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas" is the best American movie of the 1990s; a virtually perfect witches brew of violence, betrayal, misguided loyalties and a so-called "code of honor" practiced by a select group of criminals who fancied themselves no worse than your average working stiff. The production, which grabs the viewer from that early, amazing tracking shot that goes inside the Copacabana,  boasts some of the finest acting ever seen in any film, with yeomen work by Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino and, most notably, Joe Pesci in an Oscar-winning performance. Add to that some of the best casting ever seen in relation to supporting roles and you have a classic for the ages. 

Appropriately, Warner Home Entertainment has released a special 25th anniversary commemorative Blu-ray edition of the film. As outlined below in the official press release, »

The 5 Best Moments from the 'Goodfellas' Anniversary Reunion Screening

One look around New York's Beacon Theatre this past Saturday night told you it wasn't just another night at the Beacon. To close the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, much of the cast and crew of Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas reunited for a remastered screening of the film followed by a Q&A (hosted by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart) featuring Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino and screenwriter Nick Pileggi.  The Beacon was packed with fictional big-screen wiseguys, many of whom played a role in Goodfellas, as well as The Sopranos and other mob-related movies and TV shows that have filmed in New York over the years. The room was buzzing, and when Robert De Niro (who played wiseguy Jimmy Conway in the Scorsese classic...
