Donal Logue Talks Gotham, Joining the DC Universe, How His Kids Love the Show, and More

10 December 2014 6:15 PM, PST | | See recent news »

On the hit Fox series Gotham, actor Donal Logue plays Harvey Bullock, the brash and shrewd police legend who sometimes walks a very blurred line to get the job done.  While his new partner Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) hopes to restore Gotham City back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid, Bullock helps steer him around the often-underhanded politics of the city’s criminal justice system and the villains that inhabit it. During this exclusive interview with Collider, Donal Logue talked about how spoiled he feels with the worlds he’s gotten to run around in over the last couple of years, why being a part of the DC universe is like coming aboard an aircraft carrier that’s waiting for you, how showrunner Bruno Heller sold him on Gotham, how excited his kids are about him being on the show, that he’d love to »

Emily S. Whitten Celebrates Tmnt Season Three!

25 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

The current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series continues to be a favorite of mine. It strikes the right balance between being a goofy, fun cartoon about a bunch of lovable characters and addressing more serious and dark themes about power and responsibility. It also does well at adding new ideas, characters, and material while including homages to previous incarnations of Tmnt and staying true to the foundations of the overall series. The art is pretty cool and unique; and of course, the voice talent and creative team are stellar.

The series is now in Season 3 (and already renewed for a fourth season!) and has taken on a slightly different focus, with the Turtles leaving the familiar NYC cityscape for other territory. A short while ago I got to sit down at the Times Square Toys “R” Us (a super-cool store with a Ferris wheel and other nifty things inside »

"Throwdown" Takes Your Patience To The Mat

23 November 2014 10:32 PM, PST | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

One could say don’t bother, but you probably weren’t going to anyway. From director Timothy Woodward, Jr, who has five films in post-production, which should tell you something about the care he’s putting into each project he helms, comes the graveyard where subpar actors go to die. Or, get small paychecks to phone it in. Same difference. Someone’s got family money, because Woodward leads the cast, with affordable has-beens Vinnie Jones and Mischa Barton flanking him, which should also tell you a good deal. Supporting duties also fall to prolific schlock star Danny Trejo and Death Race 2 and 3’s superstar, Luke Goss. If your expectations are where they should be by now, then you may be able to stomach Throwdown.

Die Hard tops Time Out's list of the 100 greatest action films of all time

I am partial to lists and the ranking of the greatest movies of all time, especially when broken down by genre. With over a hundred years worth of movies to choose from, it can sometimes be daunting to whittle a list down. Plus, any list is up for debate since folks don't always hold the same movies in the same regard. Take for instance this new list from the good folks at Time Out New York.

The Book of Life review: "A sunny and spirited animation"

21 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jorge R. Gutierrez; Screenwriters: Jorge R. Gutierrez, Douglas Langdale; Starring: Channing Tatum, Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Ron Perlman, Danny Trejo, Christina Applegate, Ice Cube; Running time: 95 mins; Certificate: U

Mexican mythology provides the inspiration for The Book of Life, a sunny and spirited animation that's as much about what happens after we leave this mortal coil. Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana and Diego Luna lend their voices, each in the corner of a love triangle that spans three beautifully realised worlds: the Land of the Living, the Land of the Remembered and the Land of the Forgotten.

At the centre of some cosmic turbulence is Manolo (Luna), the son of a bullfighter who is expected to follow in dad's footsteps, but Manolo would rather play his guitar and serenade the town beauty Maria (Saldana). Rivalling him for Maria's affections is best pal Joaquin (Tatum), a bit of a blowhard who »

17 October 2014 6:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has sued the financers of “Sin City 2″ and “Machete Kills,” alleging non-payment of $7.7 million.

The suit was filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Rodriguez and his affiliate companies against Sergei Bespalov, Marina Bespalov, Maddartico, Vrelonovama, Aldamisa Entertainment and SC2 Productions.

It alleged breach of contract and fraud. The suit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.

“In order to induce Plaintiffs to enter into agreements with various of the Defendants relating to the Pictures, Defendants, including, specifically, Sergei Bespalov, falsely assured and represented to Plaintiffs that Defendants had more than sufficient financial resources and cash flow – not only from and related to the Pictures, but also from other projects – to honor all of their financial obligations to Plaintiffs.”

The suit alleged that when the money was not paid as promised, Rodriguez paid from his own funds to “Machete Kills” screenwriter Kyle Ward.

Plaintiffs include Fifth Brain Inc. »

Film Review: ‘The Book of Life’ Has Uninspired Tale to Tell

16 October 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Unfortunately you can’t judge “The Book Of Life” by its cover. The movie draws on the fertile imagery of the Mexican “Day Of The Dead” to create its own animated world. The animation is excellent and the wooden characters seem to spring to life – but those performances are as wooden as a board.

Which also describes my feelings for most of this uninspired journey…bored.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The film doesn’t have the courage to go its own way, instead it uses the window dressing of its distinctive look to paper over a story that is firmly stuck in the material world of mediocrity. Trouble begins from the onset with an uninspired framing device involving grade school slackers touring a museum and learning about the Mexican cultural traditions – complete with a map showing Mexico with a giant bandito mustache. These modern characters seem to have been inspired by the »

Exclusive Interview: Talking 'The Book of Life' With Jorge Gutierrez

14 October 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Over the weekend I had a chance to speak with director Jorge Guiterrez about his new film "The Book of Life," which is also produced by Guillermo del Toro. The look of the film is inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos) celebrations.

"The Book of Life" is the journey of Manolo (Diego Luna), a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, "The Book of Life" encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.

Here is what Guiterrez had to say about the film.

For me, when I first saw the film, I thought of it as elements of a video game. »
