Comics: Cook's Top Ten Items For Christmas

24 November 2015 9:10 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Top 10 Christmas List

As we begin the holiday season, my good friend Michael Connally asked me to put together a top 10-wish list for Christmas.

Cook’s “Top 10 for the Holiday’s” List:

10.  Ronin Warriors – DVD Price - $20

I have never followed anime much, but at one point I thoroughly enjoyed Ronin Warriors.  It was first introduced in 1988.  Its plot centers around the demon lord of the Netherworld who is bent on conquering the mortal world. Standing against him and his four Dark Warlords are the five Ronin Warriors, each in possession of mystical armor and weapons. They are assisted by a young student-teacher, and a mysterious warrior-monk known only as The Ancient (Wikipedia).  I found the storyline to be quite entertaining with each warrior’s powers balancing one another, as do their individual personalities.  The tale also provides interesting inspiration from Japanese folklore / culture.

9. The Flash – 1990 TV Series – All »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About Marvel

29 August 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

It’s understandable that after more than 75 years of existence, Marvel would be full of easter eggs, trivia and scarcely-known tidbits.

Passing over what’s common knowledge and focusing on lesser-known information, these are the 20 most insane facts found in and behind the pages of Marvel comics

20. Daredevil And The Ninja Turtles Came From The Same Accident

Mirage Studios

Matt Murdock was famously blinded when he pushed an old man out of the path of a speeding truck carrying radioactive waste. But the story didn’t end there, at least if you ask Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird that is. In 1983, they imagined a scenario where the truck kept going, the radiation colliding with another bystander, who happened to be carrying four baby turtles that subsequently fell into the sewer. Thus, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were born.

28 May 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With filming presently rolling along, getting more and more information about the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, also known as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell. The sequel to last summer.s hit will feature a bunch of new characters, including fan favorite villains Bebop and Rocksteady, and while we already knew who will portray Bebop, it now appears the film has made a bold choice for the actor to play Rocksteady. The Daily Mail has set photos from the New York-based production that show red-haired professional wrestler Sheamus as one half of the dimwitted duo. He joins Gary Anthony Williams, who takes the role as the villain Shredder.s other animalistic henchman. Introduced in the cartoon version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, though they were conceived and designed by Tmnt co-creator Peter Laird, Rocksteady and Bebop start out life as a couple of none-too-bright goons who »

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »

Razzie Awards 2015 'Winners': The Full List

21 February 2015 4:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 2015 Razzies "winners" have been announced, leaving the "losers" to breathe a collective sigh of relief -- because, well, who the hell wants to win a Razzie?

You see, for the past 35 years, on the eve of the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards has honored the very best of the very worst movies released the previous year -- and this year's competition was nothing short of tragic. Everyone -- from Razzie favorites Nicolas Cage and Michael Bay to newcomers Nicola Peltz and Gaia Weiss -- was in the crosshairs, but only 10 took home Razzies.

Here then, ladies and gentlemen, is the full list of winners from the 2015 Razzie Awards.

Worst Picture

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" - Winner

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

2015 Razzie Nominations: 'Transformers 4', 'Tmnt' and More

14 January 2015 8:37 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses - movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have annually "saluted" since 1980.

Nominees for the 35th Annual Razzie Awards, satirizing the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014, include new names and several Repeat Offenders, returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing by the one Tinsel Town trophy derby no one sets out to win. And, in a new spin on the entire Razzie concept, this year launches a new category acknowledging that past nominees and "winners" can (and often do) go on to far far better things. Contenders for the inaugural Razzie Redeemer Award include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, »

Razzie Nominations: ‘Transformers 4′ Leads Pack; Redeemer Award Added

14 January 2015 6:38 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.

As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

Elsewhere, along with Saving Christmas and billion-dollar box office hit Transformers 4, there are multiple mentions for A Million Ways To Die In The West, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »
