Samurai Jack is Back with a Great New Comic!

24 October 2013 2:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Samurai Jack #1

Writer: Jim Zub

Art: Andy Suriano

Lettering: Shawn Lee

Editor: Carlos Guzman

Publisher: Idw

This is a great time to be alive! Not only are we in a new golden age of comic books, also known as the ‘creator-age’ but television shows long thought lost are springing to life right before our eyes. While some television shows are dragged out, all but ruining any good will—ahem Dexter, some burn so bright for such a short time that they never really leave the collective conscience. The tale of Samurai Jack is one of those television shows.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is Samurai Jack, the story is a simple one. Actually let’s do this verbatim (note– please read this in your best Mako voice):

“Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, The shape-shifting master of darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! »

‘Republic City Hustle’ Gives Back Story For ‘Legend Of Korra’ Heroes

27 August 2013 11:22 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Avatar: The Last Airbender spin-off The Legend of Korra will launch its second 'book' (read: season) on Nickelodeon on September 13th. To prepare viewers for the fantasy series' return, its creators have launched a web companion to add extra flavor to their world. The three-part Republic City Hustle provides a back story for two main characters and features a unique, blocky animation style. Republic City Hustle follows brothers Mako and Bolin, each of whom possess the ability to "bend" elements (the central plot device of both Avatar and Korra). Before the brothers befriended Korra, they lived together as orphans on the streets of the show's capital, Republic City, where they did whatever they could to scrape by. In the first episode, Mako and Bolin team up to con a little old lady, with a short bending battle thrown in for good measure. "This short was written by Korra writer Tim Hedrick »

Casablanca Hero Goes Villainous in Film Noir The Scar

16 July 2013 7:39 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Paul Henreid: Hollow Triumph aka The Scar tonight Turner Classic Movies’ Paul Henreid film series continues this Tuesday evening, July 16, 2013. Of tonight’s movies, the most interesting offering is Hollow Triumph / The Scar, a 1948 B thriller adapted by Daniel Fuchs (Panic in the Streets, Love Me or Leave Me) from Murray Forbes’ novel, and in which the gentlemanly Henreid was cast against type: a crook who, in an attempt to escape from other (and more dangerous) crooks, impersonates a psychiatrist with a scar on his chin. Joan Bennett, mostly wasted in a non-role, is Henreid’s leading lady. (See also: “One Paul Henreid, Two Cigarettes, Four Bette Davis-es.”) The thriller’s director is Hungarian import Steve Sekely, whose Hollywood career consisted chiefly of minor B fare. In fact, though hardly a great effort, Hollow Triumph was probably the apex of Sekely’s cinematic output in terms of prestige »

Pacific Rim Interview With Legendary Entertainment President Jon Jashni!

10 July 2013 8:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Legendary Pictures is behind some of the most exciting and engaging output to come from Hollywood in the last 8 years- from Christopher Nolan’s epic Dark Knight Trilogy and awards darlings like Inception and The Town, to off-the-wall projects like Where The Wild Things Are and The Hangover, right up to this summer’s smash hit Man of Steel, Legendary shows no signs of failing to dazzle and thrill audiences the world over.

Legendary’s next is not likely to buck that trend- for the film in question is Pacific Rim, arguably 2013’s most anticipated blockbuster. A portal underneath the ocean has let terrifying otherworldly creatures, Kaiju, onto our world to wreak havoc. But Humanity has far from given up- Earth is defender by Jaegers, giant robots controlled psychically by human pilots inside of them. As we face our darkest hour, the dedicated few will protect the many.

24 March 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Visionary animator Genndy Tartakovsky has been a creative force behind such popular series as The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory and Star Wars: Clone Wars.  Last fall, Tartakovsky also made a successful foray into animated feature films with the box office-and-family-friendly horror hit, Hotel Transylvania.  With his pedigree of small-screen series and recent experience with a full-length animated production, it seems the time is ripe for a conclusion to one of Tartakovsky's most unique and iconic creations.  Hit the jump to find out where it stands.  Hollywood!
