An Interview with Martial Arts Film Legend Gary Daniels

15 October 2014 6:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Manny Camacho interviews action film star Gary Daniels

Waking up at 4:30 Am is not something many of us like to do. Waking up to go to work at such an ungodly hour is usually far worse. However, waking up at this ungodly hour to go to work because I get to interview a martial art and action star I grew up watching…that is a treat!

Gary Daniels is a prolific actor and martial artist that has been in films on both sides of the pond for over 25 years. He got his start with a variety of talented people in the industry like Jackie Chan, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Lorenzo Lamas, Richard Norton, Malcolm McDowell, Costas Mandylor and a variety of others.

I remember first seeing him on screen as one of the villains in Jackie Chan’s City Hunter, opposite Chan as the main opposition protecting the main antagonist, »

Flickering Myth Reaction – Iron Man in Captain America 3 and Civil War

15 October 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth team react to the news that Marvel Studios is heading for a Civil War…

Well, this was some pretty big news for the Marvel Universe. After a few teases of Robert Downey Jr. suiting up for Iron Man 4, it was announced yesterday (by Variety, not Marvel) that Downey Jr. had signed on to feature in Captain America 3, which will adapt the Civil War storyline.

Pretty big news, but what did the Flickering Myth writing and editorial staff think?

Warning: The below conversation contains spoilers of the Civil War comic storyline, which may more may not contain spoilers for Captain America 3.

Ben Rayner: I personally think its a bad idea, it’ll end up being quite watered down and brief I would imagine, especially considering the X-men, Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 all play a big part in the comics…

Sam Thorne: I think it’ll be a huge, »

Time to celebrate Batman & Robin!

13 October 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

Last week, both Chris Cooper and Gary Collinson reported for Flickering Myth on the apologies from both George Clooney and Joel Schumacher, with regards to the widely-discredited Batman & Robin:

“I think since Batman that I’ve been disinvited from Comic-Con for 20 years. I see the comment sections on all you guys. I just met Adam West there [referring to behind the Nycc main stage] and I apologized to him. Sorry about the nipples on the suit. Freeze, freeze, I apologize for that.” – George Clooney

“I never did a sequel to any of my movies, and sequels are only made for one reason: to make more money and sell more toys. I did my job. But I never got my ass in the seat right.” – Joel Schumacher

Prior to the release of The Dark Knight Rises, I took the plunge and re-watched the 4 film-run begun by Tim Burton in 1989 and finished »

The Flash vs. Gotham – Which is Better?

8 October 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at the question on everyone’s lips… which is better, The Flash or Gotham?

It’s a brave new world for DC Comics. After the success of Arrow, the company has launched into the TV market with shows based around their popular characters. But while we wait for Supergirl to go into production and before Constantine hits the airwaves, we have a duo of new shows who have recently debuted on the idiot box. The “Before Batman” series Gotham and the Crimson Speedster’s return to television, The Flash.

But which was better?

Gotham‘s pilot was lambasted by the majority of those who saw it. Our own Anthony Stokes hasn’t been kind with his reviews and even penned an article claiming the show to be “pointless”. When speaking with other members of the Flickering Myth writing staff, the feeling seems mutual. Editor-in-chief Gary Collinson (who »

Why X-Men is the most exciting comic book movie franchise

28 September 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb….

Flickering Myth‘s Gary Collinson covered the recent news from the X-Men camp, and the changes to be made within X-Men: Apocalypse:

“Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken about having to recast the likes of James Marsden, Halle Berry and Famke Janssen with younger incarnations of the original X-Men trilogy characters: “It’d be very hard to do, because Halle, Famke, and Jimmy and others have done such wonderful jobs of bringing those characters to life.”

Read the full article here.

Unlike The Avengers and DC’s incarnations of The Dark Knight, Bryan Singer’s X-Men has the enviable position of being the longest-running cinematic comic book universe. Of course, Superman could be considered longer (spanning the Richard Donner original in 1978 and, one could argue, continuing until Singer’s own Superman Returns in 2006). But the unexplained erasing of Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace »

DVD Review – Arrow: The Complete Second Season

22 September 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arrow: The Complete Second Season

Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, Colton Haynes, Susanna Thompson, Caity Lotz and Manu Bennett.

Synopsis:

Starling City has been torn apart by the Undertaking, so the need for the hooded vigilante, now known as The Arrow, is more urgent than ever – especially as the city finds itself caught in the grip of a former friend, who has now become one of the mightiest adversaries The Arrow has ever encountered.

The second season of The CW’s DC Comics series Arrow picks up several months after the conclusion to the first season, with billionaire playboy turned masked vigilante Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) having retreated to Lian Yu e following the events of The Undertaking, and the death of his best friend Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell). Tracked down by his ‘Team Arrow’ buddies John Diggle (David Ramsey »

Flickering Myth Reaction – The Batmobile in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

12 September 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team discuss the new Batmobile…

After a few photos of the Batmobile for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online, a rather perturbed Zack Snyder took to Twitter and revealed the first official photo of the Batmobile in all of its glory. It seems to have split opinion among the Internet, but what did our writers make of it?

Be sure to also check our evolution of the Batmobile.

Tom Jolliffe: It’s design gone mad. There’s too much going on and ultimately it looks like it would be ten times worse to drive than the Nolan Batmobile. Bats would be better off in a Nissan Micra with a bit of bullet proof glass fitted.

Tom Roach: I really like the new look. I’m very happy that the new version of the Batmobile has very little resemblence to the tumbler in the Dark Knight Trilogy. »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to Thor’s Sex Change

16 July 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing staff weigh in with their thoughts on Marvel’s change to Thor…

It was announced yesterday that Thor would be getting quite the make-over and a female will be taking over the mantle of The God of Thunder. As tweeted yesterday by Jason Aaron, this is not “She-Thor” or “Lady-Thor”, this is the new look for Thor.

But what did our writing staff make of the change?

Tom Roach: Changing the gender of a beloved character such as Thor is a bold move for Marvel, but it is worth trying out. This is still only happening in the medium of comic books and will not be shown on the big screen for some time. However this will likely show the love for female characters and could lead to development of female marvel characters such as Ms Marvel. Whilst some may hate the fact this has »

23 June 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth TV is launching tomorrow!

Since our inception in 2009, we’ve grown enormously in both writing staff and readership.

The Flickering Myth Reaction – The Expendables 3 Trailer

18 June 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing staff give their thoughts on the trailer for The Expendables 3….

You can watch the trailer here.

Boom! Crash! Explosion!

That’s more or less what the trailer for The Expendables 3 involves. But for some more insightful thoughts, let’s look at what the Flickering Myth writing staff thought of the first full trailer for the third part of The Expendables trilogy…

Scott Davis: I enjoyed Expendables 2 more than the first, so I am looking forward to this one. It’s 80s action fan nirvana cranked up to 11 with Ford, Gibson, Snipes and Banderas involved. Can’t wait!

Ozzy Armstrong: Best blockbuster of 2014? Hells yeah. Loved both the first and second and this looks like another slice of fried gold. Genuinely can’t wait.

Luke Owen: My grin got wider and wider as the trailer went on. Just great stuff. Who would have »

The Flickering Myth Reaction – Dumb and Dumber To trailer

12 June 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing and editorial team give their thoughts on the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To….

It may be 20 years after the original, but Harry and Lloyd are back for Dumb and Dumber To, the trailer for which was released yesterday.

But what did our writing team think?

Ozzy Armstrong: I might be one of the few people born in the mid 80’s who didn’t enjoy the first film so a sequel seems completely redundant to me. Besides not liking the first Dumb and Dumber, I’m not a massive a fan of Jim Carrey either – so that probably doesn’t help.

As far as the trailer itself goes, I’m assuming that all of the “funny bits” were on show. This only makes me think that the end result will most likely be a big steaming unfunny turd of a picture. In short, I really couldn’t care less. »

24 May 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the best part of the past year, we’ve been referring to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel as Batman vs. Superman and now with filming on the big DC ensemble underway, we’ve got an official logo and new title in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yes, it’s very similar indeed to the placeholder title, with Warner Bros. deciding to drop the ‘s’ from ‘vs.’, and throw in a subtitle that makes it clear the film is building towards Justice League (just in case the addition of Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg hadn »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the first look at Ben Affleck’s Batman

14 May 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team share a few thoughts on the first look at Ben Affleck in the Batsuit….

DC fans haven’t had much to shout about over the best part of the past year, having to sit twiddling their thumbs waiting on news while Marvel Studios, Sony and Fox laid out their superhero plans for the next few years, as well as delivering the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, since the announcement of a Justice League movie, we’ve had the DC shows The Flash, Gotham and Constantine all picked up, and yesterday Zack Snyder sent the internet into meltdown by releasing the very first image of Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman. So, what did our writers make of the new Batsuit? »

Our weekly round up of all the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, Chronicle 2, Batman vs. Superman, Arrow, Gotham, Son of Batman, Batman: Strange Days, The Incredibles 2, Lucy and more...

We'll jump straight this week with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened in the States yesterday and is currently tracking a domestic opening in the region of $93 million, which would put it above Marvel Studios' last release, Thor: The Dark World and overtake the $86.2 million debut of Fast Five to set a new April record. This comes after a solid $75 million international opening weekend (including a £6 million, first-placed opening here in the UK), meaning that Marvel has yet another smash hit on its hands with its third Phase Two offering. »

Marvel Studios may have started rolling out its latest Phase Two offering in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but it was Avengers: Age of Ultron that grabbed most of the Cinematic Universe headlines this week as principal photography on Joss Whedon's hotly-anticipated sequel got underway in Italy (doubling for Serbia). The shoot revolved around a big action sequence, with Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) battling a load of guys in mocap suits, as well as a stand in for James Spader's Ultron. »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer

29 March 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team look at the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....

It's a movie that is hated by the fact is it exists and the man behind the cash that funded it. But the trailer for the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles landed online yesterday (watch it here). Was it good? Was it bad? Let's see what our writing team thought....

Anthony Stokes: Looks extremely similar to the Transformers movies, which is no doubt intentional.

Chris Cooper: I am not disgusted. Which considering how I thought I'd feel is quite an achievement! Look, with Bay and Fox involved I'm not expecting magic. But so far it looks Ok. The snow setting is interesting and I like the look of the Brothers working together. Over time I may even become accustomed to their chins and noses (which I think is why I'm not quite connecting »
