Comic Book Review: Batman Eternal #1

10 April 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

DC Comics is doing their very best to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight's first appearance with a new weekly series entitled Batman Eternal. Many will immediately scream, "What! Another Batman title?" Bystanders who don't hold a fanatical affection for Gotham's super hero will just stew in their own anger. Caped Crusader enthusiasts will jump up and down in ecstasy… and they have a reason to!

Batman Eternal #1 opens up with the masked avenger and Jim Gordon in pursuit of Professor Pyg. As Pyg makes his way through Gotham City spreading his own brand of chaos with the Dark Knight on his trail, Gordon chases one of the villain's henchmen into the tunnels of Gotham's railway systems. It's only a matter of time before a collision can be averted when two trains speed towards each other, Gordon and a criminal.

Just when you thought there wasn't room for another Gotham-centric series, »

Batman Eternal #1 is a Fast Start to the New Weekly Series

9 April 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman Eternal #1

Written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV

Art by Jason Fabok

Colored by Brad Anderson

Published by DC Comics

With a jaw dropping first page (actually the end of the whole Batman Eternal story), Batman Eternal #1 goes full throttle from the beginning and never lets up on the gas. Scott Snyder and James Tynion have been writing about Batman and Gotham for the past three years, and their knowledge of the character and his supporting cast pays off. Batman Eternal #1 is as much a Jim Gordon or Gcpd story as a Batman one, and Snyder and Tynion re-introduce young policeman (and previous Barbara Gordon flame) Jason Bard to the DC Universe using him as the unreliable Pov character of this issue. The story seems like it is going to be experienced hero (Gordon) training a wide-eyed rookie (Bard), but the result is much darker and twisted. Snyder »

Graphic Review: Justice League: Trinity War

3 April 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

DC Comics brings their latest event which unified its universe to the graphic novel format with Justice League: Trinity War. The cataclysmic battle crossed the pages of Justice League, Justice League of America, Justice League Dark, Trinity of Sin: Pandora, Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger, Constantine, and the New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special for 2012. It was a colossal endeavor that brought together almost every character from every corner of the DC world.

Pandora has stolen her box back and is scouring the world in search of the perfect or imperfect soul to open it. She believes her actions will put an end to the evil she accidently released on humanity. The members of the three different Justice Leagues are at odds over whether or not Pandora can be trusted or knows what she's doing. Is she misled in her endeavors or can she really wipe the face of evil off the Earth? »

Joel David Moore, Barbara Eve Harris & Donnie Keshawarz Board ABC’s ‘Forever’

14 March 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Joel David Moore (Bones, Avatar), Barbara Eve Harris (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Donnie Keshawarz (The Wolf Of Wall Street) have landed series regular roles on ABC’s drama pilot Forever, written by Matthew Miller and directed by Brad Anderson. It centers on Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City’s star medical examiner. But what no one knows is Henry studies the dead for a reason – he is immortal. His investigative work with recently widowed Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza), a recovering alcoholic, and relationship with best friend Abe (Judd Hirsch) will peel back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life. Moore, repped by ICM and Underground, will play Lucas, a young M.E. tech who’s a bit of a hipster and easily tongue-tied around pretty women. Harris, with Sdb Partners and Valeo Entertainment, will play Lt. Roark, an old-school NYC cop who is Martinez’s boss. »

Sorrentino Set To Start Shooting Michael Caine-Starrer ‘In The Future’ In May

4 March 2014 4:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Hot on the heels of his foreign Oscar victory for “The Great Beauty” Paolo Sorrentino is set to start shooting in May on Michael Caine-starrer “In The Future,” an intimate drama about “friendship between two old people,” the Italo helmer has announced.

Sorrentino said that after his ambitious Oscar-winning tour de force he wants to make “a fresh start” with a “small, intimate film,” he told Italian daily La Repubblica. The helmer’s customary irony is likely to permeate his new pic, which Sorrentino penned himself.

As previously announced, “In The Future” is being shepherded by Sorrentino’s regular producers, Nicola Giuliano and Francesca Cima via their Indigo Films shingle, with co-financing from Italian distributor Mediaset/Medusa which is planning a late 2014 release in Italy.

In The Future” will mark Sorrentino’s second pic toplining an A-list anglo-saxon star, following his collaboration with Sean Penn on “This Must Be The Place »

Top 13 Haunted House Favorites

17 February 2014 8:30 AM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

There are so many sub-genres in horror. The vampire movie, zombie apocalypses, torture porn. But there's nothing more classic and purely fright-inducing than the things that go bump in the night. To celebrate this week's release of The Invoking, we bring you our Top 13 Favorite Haunted House Movies.

Is anything creepier than when your own house turns against you? You can (theoretically) get away from zombies, vamps, slashers and werewolves. But when your own home sweet home is the enemy… it's tough to recover from that.

We have some great Honorable Mentions to start off with. Fantastic director James Wan really seems to have a knack for the haunted house movie as he has one entry on the list itself and also gets a nod for Insidious, a creative look at the inner, an outer, workings of a haunted house. A Haunting in Connecticut was impressive as, in addition to the actual haunting going on, »

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – January 27th 2014

27 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »


This week’s best new releases on all the Instant Watching platforms.

Spring Breakers (2013)

Harmony Korine’s critical darling from last year is likely to be talked about and discussed for a good long while yet. Holding up an uncomfortable mirror to our youth, Spring Breakers works on a lot of levels not only does it work as a surface level tale of four out of control girls on a debauched trip in Florida but it also works as a story about the spiritual death and rebirth of Generation Y and asks some important questions about how post war culture evolved into something where our youth think licking power tools in music videos is something to aspire to.

There is a scene fairly early on where the two most rebellious of our heroines sit in class discussing oral sex on paper as their tutor drones on about world war two, »

Guy Lodge's DVDs and downloads

The Kes-like Selfish Giant retains its astonishing power on the small screen, while Formula One drama Rush takes a pit stop

It wouldn't be film awards season without a critical chorus of complaint following every major announcement – none louder than the one that greeted the best British film Bafta nod for Gravity, that quintessentially English ode to keeping calm and carrying on.

Two of its rivals in the category, as it happens, hit DVD shelves tomorrow; one deserves a lot more than puny secondary prizes. That'd be The Selfish Giant (Artificial Eye, 15), Clio Barnard's astonishing northern morality tale of unguarded children in the industrial wilds of Bradford. A somewhat oblique evocation of the Oscar Wilde fable, it stars ferocious 13-year-old newcomer Conner Chapman as a young terror whose aptitude for scrap metal collection takes him into dangerous adult realms of corruption, compromising his friendship with sweet-natured pal Swifty »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2004

8 January 2014 12:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 9 Jan 2014 - 06:25

We head back a decade to look at a few films that deserve more attention. Here’s our list of 25 underappreciated movies of 2004...

Think back to 2004, and you might dredge up hazy memories of the computer-generated fairytale sequel Shrek 2, Alfonso’s Harry Potter installment, The Prisoner Of Azkaban, or maybe Mel Gibson’s phenomenally successful Passion Of The Christ.

It’s rather less likely that you’ll remember some of the films on this list. You’re probably aware of the drill by now: we’ve gone back into our distant, beer-addled memories to find 25 of the less commonly-lauded movies from the year 2004.

Some of them did reasonably well at the time, but appear to have been forgotten since (especially the one eclipsed by its own internet meme), while others were coolly received by the public or critics (and sometimes »
